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....
