Republic of Gamers is what Abit's Fatal1ty series could have been

  • Summary: FANTASTIC. Upgraded from a failed Crosshair I ROG board for almost half the price. The technology on this board is astounding. The addition of USB 3.0 and SATA 3 is no joke. What used to take me 7 minutes to transfer data from a DVDR disc to the hardrive via USB 2.0 now takes less than a minute! The overclocking and options for tweaking on this board are insane. The black and red color scheme is also very well done and the layout for the most part is very well done.

Good looking, FAST, simple to Overclock! Asus' best offering ever!

  • Summary: This offering by Asus proves that "excellence" in computing is not a bygone phrase! This is my 2nd build with the exact same motherboard and the first one went so well I had to create another build just for fun. Using an AMD 1055t processor with my 1st build and OC'ing it to 3.67Ghz from the stock 2.8Ghz was simple and as easy as it gets!

Fantastic AM3 board for O.C.

talynn_67, Ebay

  • Summary: I personally choose this board over the Gigabite one at the time because it was capable of excepting more RAM. It wasn't until i had bought it and started to research it that i learned what i had gotten myself into. It comes from the ROG division of ASUS also known as the Republic of Gamers. So if you own any of their equipment you become part of their republic. At this point i'm now part of a republic of gamers and a cult of razer.

"Very stable and fast Motherboard"

Daedalu, CNET
25 August 2010
  • Pros: This board has all the new bells and gadgets that you could want. And it is an overclockers dream! The bios will help those that are new to the install and to overclocking,
  • Cons: Not much in the way of cons , but the manual could use more detail on the functions. Over all the only thing that would slow one down is understanding the setup on the board, and the setting of the sata ports.

Asus Crosshair IV Formula

  • Conclusion: Great Board overall and i seriously recommend for anyone whos a hardcore gamer/designer overclocking can be done either throught he bios or the asus Turbo Key suit in windows... what alos shocked me is how well UBUNTo recgnized the board and CPU almost right away after a small update. if you want to avoid overclocking and preserve your equipment on the long run i suggest going with 1800mhz ddr3 rams for good balanced performance.
  • Pros: Great MOBO, using it myself with a 1055 x6 the
  • Cons: You might need a pipe stack High Cooler sine the chipset heatpipe is a bit bulky on the board My Case is a thermaltake Element S so i had no problems but if you have a small ATX case with poor wiring sulutions... you might want to opt for a new case. another con is the lack of a PCI-E 1.0 slot,
