true... i think 990 will sell though... amd with sli has always been welcome plus if bulldozer out preforms sandy bridge then there might even be a shortage of these bords nevermind not selling enough

hey just in case you come back and start putting it together ASAP you need to use the quatro drivers 275.36 not he geforce 275.33 ok, if I am not around or sleeping or playing with myself (most likely that one) I think alancsalt knows how to use the quatro drivers on the geforce if not him the guy that got the board before you did it so ask him, I will be around but just not feeling well so mite sack out for a bit but who knows, but wanted you to know so you could get it done

so does it really matter if you have fancy pants on-board audio if you are using a usb sound card, and yea it does suck there's no intel network but does that warrant another 30$ i don't think so. what do you think is the CHV better overall than the ST and don't forget about the fact that the ST has more on-board temp sensors that are better located and think of ho that will help overclocking also the ST has that ceramix coating that will help overclocking as well

I think I would go with the ST but I am interested it watching the ASRock, Gigabyte, and Biostar to buy one just yet. The 990FX is gonna be great if not just for the SLI!

well asrock I can't even believe I am going to say this, they should fire there tech guys! I don't want to get into it that much but the 990fx ASrock? if that is one you are waiting t see give up lol, they have none nada no 990 chipset

GigaByte's board is very sexy as hell to look at, I myself look at it and say wow Giga so the MSI big bang board failed so you copied it and put a AMD chip on it huh? I am not saying it won't be a good board but it just gives me a bad vibe IMHO

Biostar well it looks as if the used a old board, heat sinks are way to small on the south bridge, and just look at it you will see it is just horrid and I would never recommend it based on reviews I have seen of it in motion. In short it stinks

MSI well they have a good lay out and it seems to be a ok board, there has not been a lot of reviews on it yet to form a working opinion, but I am hopeful for it I hope it doesn't suffer the same bench results as the Giga with in all honesty MSI and GigaByte always seem to be about the same on there top end boards

ASUS well the SaberTooth is so far shaping up to be a contender it has the advantage of going in my case as well soon lol, already here just waiting for new rad so all done at once, I have friends with this board and read the reviews which in a way almost makes me feel like changing the others as the reviews are not really saying great things (not bad) The one friend I have seemed to be able to OC his cpu a lot further than before so I really am liking the RWR more than the reviews

ASUS the big dog CrossHair V (wish this had sound, I would have James Earl pissed off voice "anowsing" it) lol I say it will do very well in replacing the over priced 890 chip set I mean this is great in a way the last series the IV was and still is more money lol in fact the marketing has ripped people off in my opinion as they have now pulled the extreme from the selfs after selling just before release at a price of 299.99 and the V coming in at 239.99 I would be pissed if I just bought the extreme IV because they did plus up on it a lot in the past weeks!!!

Sorry about not saying anything about the board but that IV thing just makes me mad to think about, I would get ether the ST or the CH:V it really just biols down to color and lay out as they both are 990/950 with great PCB's

My current rig is a 750a from XFX with an AMD Phenom 9850 and I just recently started noticiing it date itself particularly cus im running 4gb ddr2 400mhz but i started looking around and i was but a paycheck away from buying that crosshair 4 formula and man would i have been pissed off if i payed newegg 209 for that b#### when t he ST is on the new chipset and like a dollar or two cheaper! The crosshair iv is no doubt a great board but the pricces need to drop they should not remain as a premium price since the board is no longer the Enthusiast level although i bet the drop will come when they stock the V that way consumers will see that difference

Well honestly you guys would have noone to be angry at, but yourselves. It's your job to research and price check.

I did price check or we're (oh god I can't remember which were or we're or where or etc to use lol) speaking to the other guys as I did my research before I bought the SaberTooth the only problem I had was post jitters lol as I was second guessing myself a lot but I am glad that I got the ST
