sabertooth vs crosshair V

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
differences between the two boards? i noticed that the CHV has an extra 4 pin for the cpu and a molex for extra gpu power, does that matter at all when overclocking? i will most likely be running the highest end BD and either a 5970+5870 or 5870 xfire

yes, i saw that but with those specs they seem about the same, i was mostly asking about the extra 4-pin cpu connector and the molex by the pci-e ports, i will be running xfire/trifire depending on how i feel and i am wondering if one is more "overclockable" (perhaps more stable voltages at higher OCs thanks to the extra connectors on the corsshair V) or better performing than the other? personally i prefer the way the sabertooth looks but looks mean very little to me, if one has more overclocking potential than the other then that would mean a lot more to me.

im only going to be running a few sata devices (4 at most, 1 of which a dvd burner) and i have less than 6 USB devices, and no absurdly fast network speeds

only 40 bucks more for crosshair v, it has more features, for ocking, i belive more fan headers, and probably more stable VRM system, it uses extreme engine digi ( dont know what it means but seem better than just didi). And better spaced pci-ex16 slots for tri-fire.

Go for the Crosshair V Formula, it has more features, its made to be overclocked, it also has the supreme X-FI audio chip, so audio will sound a lot better.
