post #1221 of 13131
question:

when you doing stress testing...with PRIME95

which setting you guys stress test with?
the "small FFTs" or "Blend"

Does the Crosshair come with a long enough XFire bridge to jump the 2nd tower?

1st and 3rd? Good, I was worried I would lose both of my PCI slots if I went crossfire. The second PCI slot (bottom-most one) should still be open, correct?

hey guys I'm just wondering if the Asus Crosshair IV Formula is actually a good Motherboard? (in terms of overclocking a lot)

Yup. The first PCI slot is basically useless since almost all GPUs are dual slot these days. And you'd also lose the x4 PCI-E at the very bottom if you crossfire.

Yup it is. I am able to push my 720 BE easily to 3.8 Ghz and have it run stable while maintaining less than 1.5v. Then again, I am watercooling it, so that probably contributes a fair bit to it.

well i have a Crosshair IV coming in the mail,
only ordered so when i do future upgrades 3 times xfire.

i can already hit 4.0ghz on my 770T-UD3P but Vcore is at 1.525 (on air)

I doubt you'll be able to go past 4.2~ though. Not due to cooling etc, but simply due to high voltage and the chip architecture.

Btw, if your vcore is over 1.5, you'll be seeing a nice red light glowing on your CH4 (there are lights for each voltage, such as nb, ram, cpu etc, depending on how high you go, it changes from green to orange, and then to red)
