Summary: well.. a f... amazing MB I make a upgrade from a M2N-sli deluxe and almost cry hahaha mmm but put a CORSAIR DOMINATOR 1600 and make me a few problems so i change the positions and the order of the slots to get it work... and buy a video car: asus 7850 director cut II.
Summary: I had certain requirements when looking for a board: AMD processor DDR3 3-way SLI This was impossible to find but this board came the closest to what I wanted. Yes this thing has all the bells and whistles one could ask for, a great plus.
Summary: Killer board. 8 SATA ports, 6xSATA 6Gbps, 2 for optical drives Jmicro 3Gpbs. Top quality construction, limitless overclocking abilities. RAID 0/1/5/10 on board. This is the best chipset available and board seems rock solid with a 1100T Phenom II X6. Used Corsair 2x4GB (CMX8GX3M2A1600C9) at 1600MHz.
Summary: Comments about Asus Crosshair IV Extreme Desktop Motherboard: The best AMD motherboard I have ever used! I have this board mated to a six core phenom 2.8G processor and play the higher end games. with 8GB RAM installed and my six core it SCREAMS.
Summary: When I first got this board I had just bought a new case as well. The case came with some cool looking black screws that I used to secure the motherboard to the case. I was getting constant (system would not run more then 10 mins) reboots and BSOD.
Summary: First off, i just want to say i have no idea what the other people are talking about in there reviews. I have no trouble putting in 16GB on memory and installing my air cooler. Second, this board has the best chip set cooling design ive ever seen.
Summary: Well took this board out of the package and it looked like it was open. The heatsink was hanging off the Lucid and SB chip. I turned the board over and theres the problem 6 screws missing. Call Asus and they told me to RMA the board with Amazon.
Summary: Sincerely I had the Asus Formula Standard and it works pretty nice and cool, This thing is the same but much better It is bigger and nicer, and very overclockable It is 2cm Bigger than Formula IV Standard but if you have a full tower don-t worry It fixes pretty well, I do like the light of Republic...
Summary: EDIT: See end of post for update after 1 and 1/2 years of ownership. This is one of the most feature complete boards I have ever personally seen. I needed it specifically for it's support of both Crossfire and SLI. However I have had nothing but trouble from this from the very start.
Summary: Pros: Awesome performance. Many options to work with. Nice color scheme. Easy to set up. Cons: Memory slots too close to the CPU. Makes it difficult to use a high end air cooler solution. Had to remove two sticks of memory to fit an air cooler on the CPU. Not good!
