Im seriously thinkign about getting that board from them but the only draw back is its refurbished, but i can always buy a 1 yr xtra warrenty for 15 bucks. I might go this route It will be 2 to 3 weeks before i can get another board according to how fast they RMA my old board and post my money to my card. I couldnt update the bios, me and the asus tech tried all 3 diff ways and the board just wouldnt let us do it, thats another reason they wanted me to RMA it. I wasnt gonna RMA it they was the ones that wanted me too so i followed there advice.
I was stuck with the stock original 0402 bios frown.gif

You should just go for the sabertooth if you really want it imo. Once you have your motherboard, you're stuck with it for a long time.

Well, at least until you feel like re-installing your OS or taking careful precautions and fighting with the install for a few days. tongue.gif

I should know, I've been there a few times myself. But yeah, it's a real pain. If you want the Sabertooth, just go for it now so you won't have to fight with it later.

I understand,was mainly posting that for others with similar situations.It is quite likely the board damaged itself from erroneous voltage control through the bios. Mine booted my system at 4.65GHz and 1.65v when I had it set to 4.0 @1.45v before I updated the bios.thumb.gif

Crosshair 4 is an amazing board, especially at that price. But sli won't be supported with it.
Though you could download a hack to get sli working on that board, but I don't know if that's worth the effort to you.
