CH5F was the best motherboard I ever had :'(

If you can't hit 5.0 on that then it's either your fault or you have a bad chip.

+
Crosshair V formula has the Realtek ALC889 (better than the sabertooth's 892 despite the numbering) + Creative XFi software for audio and an Intel-LAN-chip (which I'd take over Realtek any day).

Really, the only thing wrong with the board was it's socket: AM3+ and that's the only reason I don't have it anymore smile.gif

Of course, I paid 210 euro for mine and the sabertooth was 190 (they dropped the price since) so it was a no-brainer. But given the choice I would definitely buy it again.

(ROG connect can be useful as well if you have a laptop but no dealbreaker, I don't know if the sabertooth has a CLR_CMOS switch on the back but that thing can be really handy when pushing it)

if you want to do suicide runs, go with the CHV if you want to OC all threads for 24/7 performance got with the sabertooth.

Not to say you can't get away with a sucide run on it biggrin.gif

Let me correct this for you.

"My friend's CHV had to be RMAed 4 times on seperate issues, becasue he kept removeing the RAM and placeing it back in, he might of forcely tried to put the RAM in upside down because he didn't have his glasses on at the time, Dead PS/2 Slot because he kept switching from mouse to keyboard (No USB Mouse or Keyboard at the time) and dead PCIe Slot becuase he tried putting a PCI card into his PCIE slot"

Hope Iv'e corrected your trollness "Importflip"

And why can't you get 24/7 performance on the CHV? rolleyes.gif

If anything: suicide runs = sabertooth. Don't need proper internet/ sound and it's cheaper so if it breaks ... meh .

This I can agree with, the 960T is more than worth the money.

But the OP should really consider this combo deal:

It's probably one of the best bang for buck combos out there right now. thumb.gif
