Best I could get in 32M while sticking to a 4ghz limit. It's a nice and efficient board with lots of nice ram settings to play with. I like how easy the bios is to work with in regards to turning of features I don't want.

This is the best I could get out of it on for a cpu-z validation while sticking to the 1.55v limit.

Picture of the setup!

All in all a very solid performing board. Like most ROG boards it can take an ass kicking and just keeps posting! Can't wait to get it nice and cold biggrin.gif

Been trying to find out about this, then came across this photo. So it's ok to run a single card in the second PCI-e slot? say a 6670... that has no power cable.


Also, anyone running Windows 8 fine with the Crosshair IV Formula? Cool & Quiet working OK?

With FX chips "Cool'nQuiet" will not work because it is a "Power Saving" function. Power Saving functions are disabled on FX boards when not running Thubbie or previous architecture CPUs'. The BIOS will not support C'nQ functions when running Bulldozer, Piledriver or Steamroller CPU. Crosshair V supports C'nQ and Crosshair IV does not. thumb.gif

I see. I should have said... I'm only running a 1090t. What about the graphics card in the second PCI-e slot?

That's what the GPU fan cage is for but you can modify it should it not fit cleanly inside the cage. I think that it's a 120 fan but since I don't have one of those I cannot rightly say. smile.gif

@Ceadder:

You must have missed something when trying to set C&Q.
I have had C&Q working when I used a Bulldozer CPU on my C4E.

I am pretty sure I haven't. It said in the Beta Bios that CnQ features wouldn't be enabled. This may have changed though and since I have yet to attempt to use an FX CPU in my Formula I couldn't rightly say. I can only give the information as I know it to be. Since the Extreme that I have is currently inoperable I can't even say that there is or isn't a BIOS update past the Beta model. I have to send it in to ASUS to get repaired so I can sell it. I think there is some TIM crumbs in the socket.

So you could be right. I have nothing else to say one way or the other. smile.gif

Hi guys,

I was going through 3029 beta and found that its actually bios version 1102 or at least it has 1102 core components in there. Just extract some of the e1-e3 bios modules and load up a hex editor and you'll see version 1102 in there..

Since there is no drivers for Windows 8 for the Crosshair IV Formula, am I right in saying I'm getting the feeling that Asus has discontinued it? not that I'm after drivers. Well the X-Fi control panel would be nice under Windows 8... but it feels like the board has been very much left in the dark?

Merry Christmas everyone!

I have now done some testing with a FX-8350 on my C4E motherboard.

The basic CnQ does work as it should. smile.gif

When it comes to overclocking I compared it with a Sabertooth R2.0 board. On the Sabertooth I could quite easily get the CPU stable 4.8GHz. As I increased the CPU voltage it seemed that I could possibly achieve stability at 4.9GHz and 5.0GHz too. On the C4E however I could not get 4.8GHz stable no matter what I tried. I used the very same (custom) water cooling setup, memory, PSU etc when testing both configurations so it definitely is the C4E that is holding back the OC.

The windows 7 64bit drivers and the software are the same for vista and windows 8, and they work, just make sure you install the via audio driver first. But don't really need the creative control panel as it isn't really a creative product, it just has a sticker on top of it that says its creative X-fi
