5 out of 5 eggs Still Strong after 3 years 12/10/2013

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

Pros: This board has served me through 2 memory upgrades, 3 hard drive upgrades, 4 video card upgrades, and finally; a new processor.

Kudos to both AMD and ASUS for offering a simple BIOS update to allow me to upgrade to the latest processors.

With this motherboard and FX-8350, I'm getting 5.2GHz turbo core on all 8 of my cores and my benchmarking shows me beating an i7-4770K (in certain tasks).

Cons: Not a huge con, but would have been cool.

Other Thoughts: As of this writing you can't buy these boards new, so my intent here is to illustrate the support that ASUS provides as well as the upgrade-ability that AMD puts forward. Contrast this with an Intel solution that has changed socket types 3 times in this motherboard's life.
