Assuming that the ASUS Crosshair V would be of the same quality as the Crosshair IV, I was quite shocked to find the following negative reviews. These reviews point out an absolute wealth of problems many of which are quite critical.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...%20V%20Formula

My reason for looking into the Crosshair V board was I assumed it would be more compatible with the AMD Bulldozer which due out any day now.

Should I go with Crosshair IV board? Or would there be limitations, i.e. can't run 6 core or 8 core Bulldozer?

(So that you understand my mindset, I only read negative reviews and only attend to concrete problems, not the "this board is crap" nonsense)

So now i'm planning to buy a 2 X 4GB Vengeance kit @ 1600 Mhz, and now the question is: If i buy Vengeance i will not be able to use DIMM slot 1 & 3 (the red ones) because they are too tall and will not fit in because my Tt Frio, it's ok if i put them on DIMM slot 2 & 4 (the black ones) ? Will affect performance or something else with black dimm's?
Later Edit: Oh and i forgot, on Corsair website Vengeance don't appear on the list with Phenom II compatibility If someone knows if will match the 1100T and Vengeance DDR please tell me.
you may use the black slots with no problem
not familiar with Vengeance DDR

You can take me off the list, as I've moved to the "other side".

At this moment none of us can give you certainty of anything related to Crosshair IV+BD.
Most people say the only thing it will become unavailable is the Power Saving Features of Bulldozer... Like if we cared, mine even came off by default when i bought my Crosshair IV Formula .
Also read people saying that it will only support the 4 Cores and 6 Cores BD's because the 8 Core BD would require that extra pin.
Last but not least another bunch of people are saying that there is no need for the missing pin, bulldozer isnt using it its Llano who needs it.

Who's saying the truth? TBH we do not know and we cannot trust, all we know is that MSI, Asrock, Asus, etc all those brands announced BD compatibility with their 890FX premium mobo's.

I do know it might not be the answer you are looking for but i also dont want you to be deceived.
