M4A89TD pro or Crosshair V formula

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
hi guys, long time no see tongue.gif

i have asus M4A89GTD pro and my cousin has the same mobo but unfortunately his mobo died few days ago, so i'm thinking about getting a new mobo and giving him mine

i've looked at a lot of mobos and i liked the M4A89TD pro and the crosshair formula v

it's hard to find any other brand for amd mobos here except for asus and gigabyte and honestly i prefer asus to gigabyte

there is about 100$ difference in price , M4A89TD pro has AM3 socket while the other has AM3+

since i stopped following the tech news for about a year i know that M4A89TD pro is good, but i don't know much about the crosshair v

which one do you guys recommend ?

M4A89TD has 2 less power phases but is based on the 890FX chipset, so more pci-e lanes for crossfire. CHV speaks for itself, endless overclocking options, Bulldozer upgradeable. Only snag I've heard so far is it needs 1T memory to successfully boot. There is a wealth of information on that board in the CHV club thread.

How is your current (M4A89GTD PRO) board? I'm thinking of getting it since I may skip Bulldozer.

my current mobo is amazing, didn't have any problems with it till now and it's good for overclocking, i OCed my cpu to 3.6 Ghz but didn't continue to 4 because i got bored of testing every time i increase the speed tongue.gif
and i lowered my ram timings a bit to 8-9-8-24, couldn't go lower though, but i guess its good for cas9 ram

my cousin got a 4 Gb ram stick and his mobo died once he installed it confused.gif

i'm guessing his psu was the reason 'cause its a 350 W that comes installed in a cheap case doh.gif

Crosshair V formula, I have a m4a785td-v evo, and couldnt get to 4.0ghz, only 3.9ghz at 1.55v

Now i'm at 4.0ghz with 1.525v ( I know, not a golden chip).

And you will get full bulldozer suport from socket am3+.

Socket am3 will suport bullzoder in some board, i think the 890FX chipset, but some power features wont be usable.

My vote, Crosshair V Formula.

The Formula V is the thing. It has Bulldozer support, but it is also the top end AMD for Asus boards. It gets all the features that you would possibly want and has super OC capabilities and features. If you are buying a mobo now, not worth buying AM3 older socket. Just go with a newer AM3+ socket that will serve you for more time and you can always upgrade it.

Crosshair V, because it can support the upcoming bulldozer and your current CPU.
