ASUS Crosshair V Formula/Thunderbolt AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Enough extras on the board for most power users to be happy with.

Cons: My issue is with the placement of the PCI Express x1
slot.if you populate the slot with the included soundcard then you can't fit a graphics card in the top slot.Major con especially to users who want 3-way SLI and to use a soundcard.Most of these motherboards have this issue.But this is supposed to Asus.A quality mother board maker with Top Of The Line Lay Outs.

Other Thoughts: Asus get your act together.We love you and your products very much.You just need to pay better attention to detail.It's the small things that us geeks nit-pick about,it's also the small things that make me pick an Aus board or an MSI.

Pros: If anyone has any questions about the performance of this card>check out the benchmarks in Maximum PC magazine.This chip is the real deal.

Cons: no cons really>no heatsink>so what..spend money for an aftermarket..get the new 3 fan Zalman

Other Thoughts: Spend the money>and receive a monster.
