[OFFICIAL] Asus CrossHair III Formula AM3 Club - Page 171

post #1701 of 1767
I used a XFX HD R7870 with this board and had no problems at all. The only thing I was experiencing was that i couldnt see BIOS post, but that was due to my TV not showing the correct frequency through HDMI (I know, messed up thing to happen)

The board works great, served me well for 4 years and loved every second with it.

Sorry for the late reply but i was away from internet for a while

Thanks DarkShooter
I will buy some 7xxx card in the near future and maybe follow your same upgrade path with a Crosshair V Formula Z

Hey guys I've got a bit of a problem. The add-on soundcard that came with the board has been broken for years so I bought an Asus Xonar PCIE card to use since then. Now I bought a second GPU to crossfire and, due to the layout of the board, the soundcard would block one of the GPUs heatsinks off.
To avoid this I want to use the very top Black PCIE slot (where the add-on card used to be), however I cannot get it to work at all and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas why this might be.
Could it be possible I inadvertently disabled it in the BIOS or that it's only compatible with the add-on card (something I find slightly odd if true)?

Hello there,
I want to change my old graphic card (HD 5700) to GTX 770, would I face any problem?
I've no plan to do SLI or crossfire. My PSU OCZ FataL1TY 700W.

BTW, I've not upgrade the BIOS ever since I bought my Crosshair III in year 2008 or 2009, I did it once but then it won't booth up because of RAM incompatibility(Team Group 4GB 1866). Hence, revert back to the org BIOS version.

There should be no problem in regards to the mobo, although the CPU may bottleneck the GPU slightly depending on what it is. If it's a 955 or 965 OC'd then it'll be fine

also I'm still on a 2009 BIOS as well
post #1706 of 1767
Oh man...my CPU is only X3 720 BE.
post #1707 of 1767
Hmmmm yeah I think that'll bottleneck it, can you not upgrade to a 965? I'm sure there are some dead cheap ones on a certain online auction site.

Is that the best cpu for crosshair III?
If I change the CPU, I hope, I need not to re-install my OS.
post #1709 of 1767
Well the "best" Phenom II would be the X6 1090T, but good luck finding that anywhere at a decent price now. Yeah the 955 and 965 X4 are the best to go for at this stage.
If you change the CPU it shouldn't affect your PC, on your first boot up go into the BIOS to make sure it registers as such that the chip is different and you'll be good to go.
