4 out of 5 eggs Nice Board...But See Cons 12/13/2011

This review is from: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Great board and layout...overclocking is excellent..But NB overheating....idle about 65-70...not good...when gaming..after about 10-15 min...computer will shut down and reboot. See below.

Cons:

This board has a known NB overheating issue...because of the way Asus installed the heatsink, used incorrect standoffs resulting in the cooler not making direct contact with NB chip.

Other Thoughts:

My advice to anyone buying this board is to purchase an aftermarket water block...EK makes the best one..its a full board block....I changed mine...and what a difference!!..with just the block installed without the water, my temps on the NB went to 45 deg idle...huge dirrerence!!...once I add water...should drop even more!!
