5 out of 5 eggsGreat for OCing AMD 8350

Pros: Able to OC my 8350 Processor 4.8MHz in 1.45v
CPU Ratio 20.0
CPU Bus Freqency 240MHz
CPU/NB Freqency 2.00MHz
CPU Manual Voltage 1.45v
16Gbs Memory speed: 2239MHz
NorthBridge: 2400MHz

CPU idels at 40cc
ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z MotherBoard Temp 38cc

When browsing and watching movies it Idles 41cc
Running Guild Wars2 in a populated are 54cc
TitianFalls 47cc

Cons: Its a 2.0 PCI slot not a 3.0 PCI Graphic card slot.

Other Thoughts: My Rig: This will server me well for many years to come.

With my tower I can easly keep the heat below 65cc on the motherboard NB. Just having a open case got it real hot quick. Make sure your rig has good air circulation if your planning on OCing your cpu. And dont waste your time and money, water cool it you will be glad that you did.

4 out of 5 eggsASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 8 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS

Pros: For the price this is a great board.

Cons: I had this board for almost a week before one of the PCIe slots stopped working. I tested a few different cards that do work and still couldn't get the board to recognize any of the cards even after a few hours on the phone with ASUS which by the way were great at helping me out.. This stuff happens and i took one egg off for it but really this is a nice board for the money if you want a nice AMD build.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Amazing

Pros: Simply everything

Cons: What can I say? Being a new Proud owner of one of the best mobos for the AMD processor. Owned a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 rev 1.0 before this one. That board was an overclocking headache. Couldn't OC my ram past 1600 MHz and even clocking it that high limited how high that I could OC my CPU to before I had stability problems.

So I ordered a new case and this motherboard and once it came in I transferred all my hardware from old board to this board. Now I am able to OC my ram up to 2133 MHz, (and probably further with some more tweaking.) I can also OC my CPU up to 4.7 GHz at the same time with no problems.

Only thing that I had issues with was initial boot up after reinstalling Windows 10. I kept getting blue screens and reboots before completing installation. Come to find out, BIOS defaults at least for my RAM and CPU sets the voltage too low. I had to bring CPU voltage up to 1.42 and RAM to rated 1.65 to be able to boot. Also initial setup of audio software takes some tweaking in settings to be able to get sound to output to correct devices. Other than that, enjoying some great FPS increases in games and OC stability is awesome. Loving this board!!

CPU: AMD FX 8350
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT4G3D2001CE1TX0
CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000)

Total 16GB

GPU: EVGA GTX 660 2-way SLI
PSU: Thermaltake 850W
Cooling: Thermaltake CLW0217 Water 2.0 Extreme/All-In-One Liquid Cooling System

Other Thoughts: Initial tweaking in BIOS from get-go in order to boot.
Initial tweaking with sound to get it to work correctly from software to hardware.

2 out of 5 eggsMy last Asus MOBO

Pros: ROG connect, user friendly BIOS, Asus update and AI Suite

Cons: Frequent problems with Asus products. My first Asus MOBO was a Sabretooth 990fx which bricked unexpectedly after about 6 months of use. Upgraded to a crosshair and had only minor trouble with updating the BIOS. I then bought this, my second crosshair. After 1 day of use the network adapter has died.

Other Thoughts: When Asus products work they are great.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Derek,

I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your network adapter on your motherboard and the inconvenience it caused you. Have you checked if the network adapter was not disabled on accident? If you are convinced that your network adapter is faulty, you can submit an RMA and have it replaced at http://www.asus.com/us/support. ASUS offers 3 year warranty on our motherboards. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at cl-justin@asus.com and I will help you to the best of my abilities. Your case # for reference is N150865513

Thanks for choosing ASUS

Regards,
Justin

5 out of 5 eggsTakes lots of abuse

Pros: Customization. This thing has every feature you could imagine in regards to overclocking. It took just under 3 years of abuse from me with extreme overclocks. The BIOs is well designed and setup in a way that makes sense. It has a great soundcard that actually has decent software (Woah?). The software suite that ASUS Provides allows you to tweak any overclock setting from Windows or even connected to another computer running Windows.

Cons: Only cons I could think of is that the BIOs utility doesn't allow you to downgrade easily. Not a big con.

The other thing is with Linux distro, the BIOs must embed UEFI boot titles in the BIOs chip. Even after reformatting the drivers to windows and upgrading the BIOs it keeps the options Fedora/CentOS and Ubuntu in the BIOs boot list. Yet none of these are available. Just odd mostly.

Other Thoughts: First time I've ever had a motherboard go before a processor. No big deal. :)

4 out of 5 eggsMOBO

Pros: Alot of advanced stuff for half of the cost of top dollar intel MOBO.

Cons: A FEW DAYS after the 30 day point passed, the MOBO partially fails.

Other Thoughts: Buy the Warranty or bust

Pros: Nice product! My first build from new parts. Everything was delivered in good order, condition and in a timely manner. Assembly was well documented with easily understood manuals. Hardware was high quality, clean and no defects. Very pleased with the service, product and myself for saving a bunch of cash, by building it myself!

1 out of 5 eggsDifficult Product Setup

Pros: Nice feature set if this product worked as advertised.

Cons: This board is a pain. Doesn't recognize the ram correctly and set the XMP timings using a 4 stick set of G.Skill.F3-1600C9-8GXM.The only way it will boot and function is using "optimized defaults" then it runs this this 1600 memory at 1333 at timings nowhere to be found in the timing tables. Reading on the ROG website another user had the same problem and the ASUS tech recommended using some extreme auto setup. When it booted it didn't thinks it has an Ethernet adaptor installed even though windows 6.1 pro reported the correct driver under hidden devices!
