ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • AMD 890FX
  • Phenom II / Athlon II / Sempron 100 Series
  • AMD 140W CPU Support
  • DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066


Easy set up....fired up no problems on first boot....lots, and I mean lots of overclocking options, robust bios as well. Havent overclocked yet...but I am sure I will hit 4.0 with ease. I recommend the Coolit ECO ALC...and add a second fan for push/pull...Coretemp is showing 17c idle!!!


Not really a con, but if you plan on running 4 sticks of DDR3 2000mhz, a bios update to 0801 will be neccessary...mine came with 0505, only allowing two sticks to run at DDR3 2000...As far as the NB, the bios shows temps at 78, which I think is incorrect....but I have been playing games for hours, no problems so far.

Other Thoughts:

My set up:
Asus Crosshair 1V
Phenom 2 1090T BE
8 GIG OF Mushkin Ridgeback DDR3 2000
Sapphire Toxic 5850 X2 Crossfire
Thermaltake 850w Tough XT
Coolit ECO ALC
Intel SSD 80G for boot drive
WD Velicoraptor 300gb

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
