Depends. If you really only do gaming, they'll perform about the same.

Just like any other motherboard. The software overclocking is fairly easy to use.

There's an included white USB male-to-male chord that you plug into the ROG Connect port of the back and a USB port on another computer, mainly a laptop. Then you install the ROG Connect software on the secondary computer.

I have attached the most current, up to date RAM compatibility list. See if it's in there as I don't have the exact model number for it.

Yeah I think that Asus needs to update that with my RAM kit. Cause I know for a fact it works.






CMD8GX3M4A1333C7 is the AMD edition Dominators. If you can run the 1600 series as listed by Asus, then you can most certainly run the 1333 series. I had mine running at 6-6-6-20.

Thats suprising the model number is there but only for the 1gb x 2 version...If its the same model it should work with the 2gb x 2 right?

PROS: My color schemes match close enough. I think im gonna get the crosshair IV mainly because of the ROG connect and color plus if I do get a bad board ill use their advanced RMA.black and blue MSI with red ram not pretty anyway.

CONS: Some have had bad boards (about 15%), less pci-e slots so its most likely x16 x8 x8 instead of x8 x8 x8 x8 like the MSI counterpart, my case IS black and blue and It would be nice to keep color scheme the same but thats no reason to not buy a better board, and RAM inconvience (for now atleast we will see later)

Nope my RAM isn't listed at all.

Also not less PCI-slots. If you are going to run a PCI-e device such as a wireless adapter you lose one there. But you can still run 4 @ 8x. That final slot is 8x,4x standard. So if you can mount 4x ATi GPU if you wish. But you won't gain any benefits from doing so.

The best GPU you can run 4 slots is the Radeon 5770 GPU. When you bump up to say a 5870 you can run 4 of those only as long as they are 1Gb RAM Cards. Most of those are 2Gb cards so best you can do there is 2. Same with 5970 cards.

But if you wish to run a better than onboard sound card you have to run it in the bottom PCI slot if you run 2 or more GPU. The 3rd tower will interfere with the upper PCI.

Im just debating if I should go with the MSI 890FXA-GD70. In your preference what would be a better board?

is that a point to running 4 gpus unless you're folding or benching
the only want you can have 4 is if you have 4 single slots or use risers otherwise you can only fit 3 dual slot cards

No offense but that's kind of like asking a Catholic if the Protestant religion is better.

I think each has its purposes(back to the MoBo question) but I think that this board is better. It definitely has more features than the MSI board. I mean can you OC through another system on the MSI board? Nope.
