ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Pretty?

Cons: I have the Asus Crosshair formula II, I got it just over 1 month ago. It of course is already failing, after digging and digging to finally get a number to call to get a RMA on this product I was informed I would have to pay for the shipping. To me this is highly unacceptable. Why should the consumer pay shipping on something they should not even have to be sending back. I am not sure if I will even waste my time to send this back and be without a computer for about a month.

Other Thoughts: The reason I am posting this on this site is 2 reason, 1 i cant post on the forum of the actual product. 2 I was going to buy this particular motherboard in about a month or 2. I will no longer buy ASUS products do to the poor customer support. Even when my samsung blu-ray died Samsung paid for all the shipping. That is what customer support is all about. Not making your customer paw for shipping on a product repair/replacement.

G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4D-4GBPI-B
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I must say it was nice to see that G.Skill watches feedback on there products. I just installed a new motherboard Asus Crosshair II and with the added abilities to adjust things I was able to really simply change my timings and go to what they are rated for.

Cons: As other have stated they seem a little tall, blocks the lower area of my CPU fan, bit being a 110mm fan and 4 120mm fans on the side of the case, air is no issues.

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Pretty, SLI ready memory

Cons: not running at the proper Cas timings, defaults at 5-5-5-15

Other Thoughts: Sadly I cant figure out how to change my Cas timing to what they should be, If I knew they would just run at the same speed as mu old Super Talent ram I would have just bough the cheaper ram and only worried about going from 4 gig to 8 gigs. G.skill Tech support is major lacking.
