Anyway, here's my latest "issue" (in the US now we no longer have "problems"; we have "issues"
I am well past the $hits and giggles stage with this Gigabyte UD5 motherboard. Wired up (properly of course) and not a single beep, no post, no nothing on the screen - just as before I RMA'd it for the exact same problem ages ago.
So I am not going to fool with it anymore. Right now I have slightly more money than time and patience, of which I have NONE!
So what is the ASUS board that is supposed to replace the ASUS Formula. As those of you who know me know, I have the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula Board and am super duper delighted with it. So as to be ready for the new AMD Bulldozer, does anyone know the successor to the Crosshair?
Addendum: Yes, I do know about the Crosshair V. What I don't know is whether or not this is the best way to go. Review: http://www.overclockersclub.com/revi...air_v_formula/
Good to hear from you D*#$%^,
I was just thinking about you, not an hour ago.
I thought we had lost you.
As you may know, I have the C5F and the Sabertooth (990FX).
I have, for the time being, put the Sabertooth back in the box.
Have to wait and see what it will do with the Dozer when/if AMD ever releases it.
Of course, I would rather wait than have an early release (buggy) chip.
As for the C5F, I am not that impressed, BUT
, that is a big one. I do not, as of yet, have an FX Dozer CPU to give this board a full test run.
It realy would not be fair to say anything derogatory about the board until the FX chip come out.
The 1090T run well on the board and gets over 4Ghz with ease.
Seems to play well with most mainstream brands of memory, here again, the FX CPU will change that.
Meanwhile, I am have fun clock'in the dung out of my 1090T and seeing what kind of memory bench I can get.
BTW, my C4F is my sig rig for now, LOVE IT!
Will get two (2) FX 8 core CPU's. One for the C4F and one for the C5F and see what they look like side by side.
What fun it is!
