Asus Crosshair V formula board may have hampered Bulldozer - Page 4

post #31 of 365
Regardless of any one's opinion...this is something that must be checked out. I really don't follow or know much about Hardware Heaven, but no review site would lie on benches that are as hyped as these were. If they did they could just as well pull the plug on their web server. So I am sure that the results hardware havean reported were what they actually observed.

The only thing that was really different was the mother board. It did have faster memory...but that would not have helped in many of the tests, but yet it scored higher across the board in Hardware Heaven's tests. Though I think the Intell CPUs also scored lower across the board when compared to other reviews.

Wait a few weeks till all the bugs are ironed out on the Crosshair V, then you can pass judgement =P
That is the only thing making me really doubt this...if ASUS got a contract to be THE testing board then you can bet your transistors that AMD and ASUS have been working together for months, if not a year or more, to make sure everything and anything was in order.

its not only DOAS tho. there were a myriad of problems. with vga cards, hard disks, this that. it scared me more since i was going to put a ssd in it.

And its actually a small percentage that have problems, not that came out ok, check the CHV club.
i wouldnt classify most people who buy a majorly expensive enthusiast board in newegg as clueless. they outlined their problems perfectly in most cases, prompting the asus rep to jump in to fix stuff apparently. mostly ending with a rma. twice, in some cases. brrr.

The sabertooth that you own is a fine board. I went with the Crosshair because of it's ability to achieve extreme CPU speeds with subzero cooling which is not everyone's cup of tea!

Most newegg buyers are clueless! I would stick to reviews from people on the enthusiast sites.

This is well. This sounds like someone just trying to blame someone other then Amd. Look at the results of people running 4 cores with 4 module's. I think the main issue is the design of the chip itself

I was just trying to say this isnt the norm. Especially since people without problems do not say anything. Im not doubting there are probably issues with the Bios and the BD chips, but any argument on the board and most hardware not related to BD as having problems, is very small.

pioneerisloud mentioned a rumor about a MS hotfix. I assume this hotfix would be pushed onto all our machines so we'd know about it by now. i havent received anything.

personally, i hope that some software fix really is in the works. for one, we might be able to actually get good information from the AMD section without sifting through 478 useless "BD=fail" posts.

i do like BDs potential though, really do. with time, i think this is gonna end up being a great value chip.

logic would dictate that. however, the results contradict that logic. msi and asrock boards, chip performs better to the point of besting intel chip where it was behind before.

needs an explanation.

the only explanations can be the other two boards retard the chip. or, the other two boards that perform better have some magic in them.

surely i am aware that it is rather unwise to trust reviews in ecommerce sites. however there is a certain level at which the bad reviews are impossible to be the product of clueless users or any kind of competitor conspiracy. if i didnt think that the reviews and stories in newegg cf5 reviews passed that threshold level, i would have bought the mobo. and i wanted to buy it a lot at a certain point too.

And too many of those stupid New Egg reviews are DOA's. I hate when people give 1 egg for a DOA thats the most ridiculous thing ever. If you cant use the product how can you rate it. Most DOA's are going to come from New Eggs horrible shipping service anyways, not from the company whos item you are purchasing. Anything I buy from New Egg I assume will get hacky sacked on the way to my house. Thats why HDD are out of question, and monitors.

Have to factor in improper install as well as a possible cause of DOA.
