$350.00 is to much for any mobo.

I do like the layout and think that would make a screaming folder.

Regarding the Crosshair III switching to AMD chipset. Poor old Nvidia get't the boot. I think the bottom line is Nvidia does not have a chipset capable of unleashing all of the Ph II's potential so Your argument is, well I'm on the fence w/your argument. I'm Nvidia Fanboy but feel let down w/their latest AMD based chipsets.

To the OP, heck I was gonna start a Foxconn Destroyer club but I already have my hands full at the M2N club thread and I never imagined so many people having this board would still be rocking it to this day. Regardless of what opinios you get in this thread from the get go, keep this in mind. You are gonna be the Pioneer of this club thread and only time will tell if this board gets backed by a wider audience then what you have thus far. +1 for effort . In all honesty though, the features vs. the price for a board targeted as the best AMD 790 FX chipset board prolly will mean little sales. Once again only time will tell.

As far as what to do to make your thread OP look a little better. You could post some links in your thread for usefull tools, overclocking tips, general bios help tidbits and how to's. Any information that is usefull and otherwise helpfull in setting up the mobo.

Good Luck,

N2G

Just got this board went together for the most-part without a problem other than windows xp seems to have a slight problem with the sound-card nothing major thou.Booted-up 1st time looks good in a windowed case .Ran 3dmark on it once with everything running (anti-virus etc) and nothing ovreclocked to get a base-line to start from now i'll start to tweak-it to see what it will do.

Question about the black PCI-E 1X...I read somewhere online that you can use any sound card in this slot...but also reviews state that its only with the bundled sound card. I called Asus today; I was told that it was a regular PCI-E 1X slot, but it was designed for the sound card. He said in theory it should still support another creative card.

Not sure how good the sound card it as there are other card options out there...

If not compatible...how good/bad is the sound? The only option would be to put a sound card between the crossfire setup I want to do. Has anyone done that before?

Thanks for any help. I really want to go AM3.
