I currently run the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula board, and I love it. Never had any of the problems other people complained about. No improperly seated NB heatsink due to an over-sized mount, and definitely no driver issues. Of course, 9 times out of 10 I think "driver issues" are more user than hardware.

I have been seriously debating on what my next motherboard will be, looks like ASUS just answered my question for me. I live the Crosshair series and ASUS is my brand of choice, has been for a very long time.

Granted, the Crosshair IV is fully compatible with the FX Zambezi processors coming out next month, and there is no need to upgrade since the IV is not even close to being out dated yet. It will give me the future proofing I look for, and I use that term very lightly, since we all know it's rare in this industry. With AMD however, it's far less of a rare truth. It will also allow me to stick with my preferred brand and feature set I am already accustomed to.

I could care less about 3-way SLI since I am not an Nvidia fan and running dual 6970's is far more power than any game will need for a very long time to come, even at HD+ Eyefinity resolutions.

My 6970 (about to have a crossfire mate) and FX-8130P I plan on purchasing will both be very happy in a familiar environment. heh

Fully agree .... best board I have had - and no driver issues - no issues at all - and overclocks the butts off.... :)

I am actually thinking this board will be closer to $300, that's what I paid for my Crosshair IV Formula. Well, not really, got it with a nice discount over at Newegg. $299 was the list price at the time. Now it's only about $215.

The thing about this board coming out, is hopefully the IV's will drop a bit more in price. They would still make great upgrades for people. USB 3.0, SATA 6Gbs, full compatibility with the FX Zambezi AM3+ chips, and so on. Will still be a nice "high-end" board for a while yet I think. Unless ASUS kills it that is. heh

I can already hear the bitching it'll be 269 or something like that priced at what its worth + its new. If you want it cheaper wait don't complain or just get an MA990

And i did the thread in Motherboard section few mins ago; hope it won't make me banned. lol jk Awesome stuff. This will belong to me right when i'll have my 1st website building/design cash; just have to know whether 1000W PSU will be sufficient for this+FX8130P, 2xGTX 600-series, 8GB DDR3 1800MHz RAM & VRaptor 600GB HDD, or to move to 1200W PSU? Mobo looks awesome.

Could be wrong, but I think I see an onboard USB 3.0 head on the bottom right of the motherboard.

2Kantastic:

Regular features include SATA & eSATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.0 ports + USB 2.0 (one reserved for ROG Connect), MemOK, Thunderbolt card (SupremeFX X-Fi 2 + Killer NIC), etc..... You not wrong bout USB 3.0 head - it's it. :) Also it's 1st AMD mobo (i think) to support both CrossFireX & SLI in one chipset: [upto] 3-way SLI is licensed for this chipset, 4th PCIe slot reserved for this Thunderbolt card in case & you'll go for "just" 2 GFX cards (either NVidia's or AMD's). Awesome looking, feature packed mobo, definitely one of components to buy when it'll either surface, or when i'll have a cash for it.

*UPDATE*

AMD's FX-8130P (as well as 8130, 6110 & 4110) circling the web as well + there are already few sites mentioning the CPU's (FX-8130P & 8130's) frequency & few even know the price - great mobo deserves one of those great CPUs : BTA, when you'll post those news? :) Would love to see any of you TPU guys doing a news cover & then benchmark of atleast FX-8130P when it's out (June 11 me thinks). :toast:

It sure looks nice but why are there only 4 USB ports on the back? That's disappointing...very similar to my current Gigabyte board. I don't have room for all my peripherals and external drives...grr!

I count 8 on the I/O panel as well as 2 internal headers, so that's 4 more, 12 USB ports is PLENTY! 2 of which are USB 3.0, if you need more, purchase a USB hub . . . not like at the point where your using 10 USB devices on the same USB 2.0 bus your going to notice any speed loss as it will be as slow as a snail anyway.







My gripe is this, why in gods name, are they still putting eSATA on mobo's and then giving me only 7 internal sata ports, I mean 2 for opticals, 2 for OS drives, and 2 for back up, that leaves me 1 port for storage . . . . 2 if I get rid of one of my optical drives . . . . it's sad that a board that is likely to break the $300 mark, that I would need to purchase a raid card to add functionality that should be there in the first place, especially when they insist on taking ports and putting them on the I/O panel where they sit forever unused!

Looks pretty nice, however I think the expansion slots are terribly laid out, and why they only use 6 slots instead of 7 I don't understand. When you're buying a premium motherboard it should be able to utilize all 7 slots like ATX cases can handle.

The only thing that pisses me off is the fact the ASUSTek's site have abso-f***in-lutely no 990FX/X sections in their AM3+ mobos list: why does it take them so long to publish this, while Gigabyte have 990FX mobos on their products list? Other than that - everything goes by my plan: i think i'll be able to purchase this mobo by end of June.

AMD's 800 & 700-series based mobos available on ASUSTek's site; 990FX/X - not. Could be shame, but the info already leaked. All that's left is to wait for June 11/15. :) :toast:

*UPDATE*

Just checked - 990FX/SB950 & 990X/SB950 added to AM3+ selection list: Crosshair V Formula & Sabertooth 990FX present in 990FX/SB950. Now we talk. Links: 1) http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/AMD_990FXSB950 & 2) http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/Crosshair_V_Formula/
