Yeah, you should be able to. It says so on the Asus page.

My local shop has apparently had 4 of these motherboards in stock, total.

No. 1 was bought by me. It had NB and SB cooling issues and then died after a couple weeks (suddenly wouldn't post anymore).
No. 2 was given me as a warranty replacement. It had serious NB cooling issues (reached 65 degrees after 2 mins in BIOS, at which point I switched it off)
No. 3 was tested in the shop. Same as above.
No. 4 was tested in the shop, then came home with me today. NB low 40s, SB high 30s. Seems good so far.

Small sample size, sure, but those are terrible statistics....

I dont know whether or not to get this! Im thinking get the extreme but then I dont want to wait...... Would rather save a few £ and get this, then get something else that is better for bulldozer, maybe AM3 + will come out with it? Maybe this is what they are waiting for for the extreme? What to do?

Get CIVF. From what I'm seeing this NB issue is fixable if you're willing to put the work in. It's a standoff issue that some boards have. If you have a gap between your NB and the heatsink of course it's going to get hot and not cool off.

Basically you separate the heat sinks from the board compare the SB standoffs to the NB stand offs, and if the NB is taller than the SB file them down to the same standards as the SB stands. I would also replace the stock TIM with some performance paste like AS5, Shin-Etsu G751(or X23) or IC7. Don't overdo it though cause it is conductive and there a spots abound that it could come in contact with when pressure is applied to the heatsinks.

The NB issue is nothing more than a physical error as they were probably out of the standard standoffs and went with what they had to fill the orders. That's FACTORY error not manufacturer error. If this were 100% on the schematics of the board then ASUS is hugely at fault. But I'm sensing a 50/50 failure rating by all accounts and with the short period of time it's been out that's not unheard of. What's good is that the issue has pretty much been spotlighted and it's a fixable one. Should you HAVE to fix it? No. But if you want to take your chances with RMAs' and or getting a used board/opened box in return(with a new purchase) then you're more than welcome. The very same issues plaguing THIS board could very well happen to the Extreme as they are put together at the same factories. I used to temp for Power Bar 10 years ago and their entire lineup was processed and packaged at the same factory. Same rule applies to most product.

So you can get it and fix the issue(if you have one of the offending boards) or you can hold off and possibly have to do it anyway with Extreme.

Oh and Bulldozer will be AM3. There's enough been written about it that if you know what you're looking at you'll see that it is. Like Thuban they'll have 2 versions. It's the CPU after Bulldozer that will be requiring a new socket.

It would seem that Asus still has alot of bad boards out there. Has there ever been a recall on something like this? They really should do something.

Well I think that if everyone that has to fix this board emailed ASUS and let them know the issue, they would be better aware of the issue, what would fix it and send new standoffs to the registered owners of the product. That would save any cash outlay required just for the labor alone. $.50 worth of standoffs send through the mail system would cost them $2 on the average when bulk mailing is not applied. So everyone whether they need them or not should get these standoffs.

Since separating the Heatsinks is not a voidable issue the warranty stays intact and customers ASUS for the way they handle the issue. Win/Win everyone is happy.

Next ill be getting my 2x2gbs of ddr3 1600mhz gskill ripjaw ram, and my samsung spinpoint 500gb hdd.

Hey guys i was thinking. Someone should make a video on youtube on how to identify a problem on the crosshair iv and how to fix them. A video for noobs like me who are confused.

OK, I really like this board. I have not had the NB issue. I guess I was lucky. I still would like to get a nice CPU cooler. The stock cooler seems to be holding its own though. I guess the case helps a little too.
