[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 363

post #3621 of 13131
Just got a OCZ Revodrive 120 only to find out that the Crosshair IV is like one of the five or so boards that can't use it because of BIOS issues. Anyone know when they are releasing the next BIOS?

You know guys there's nothing wrong with how the Extreme looks. It looks just like the Intel versions of the RoG III boards IMHO. So I don't have an issue with that.

The Extreme is supposed to be for you guys with the Mad Scientist OC'er skills. The guys that want to put a lot of juice into their CPU.

In fact other than it being EATX(by necessity) I think that it's better than the Formula Boards. I mean look at the clean access to the button panel. If we have more than one big card in the Formula we're pretty much relegated to BIOS adjustments and restarts. How many of us are running our system with the PSU up top? Not me. Mine is in the bottom of my 932. And as much room as I have in it I'd have to use a tool of some sort to access my panel if I had a XFire setup.

So that's one HUGE positive. Though I have to admit that the 24 pin lead could be an issue for the Extreme. Look how many PCI slots are on it as well. Quadfire anybody? Yeah I know it would be in x8, still if you're running 1 Gig cards that could be pretty sweet.

But if they are holding it back for the "new chipset", maybe that's not a bad thing. Maybe Asus is learning from the mistake on the Formula NB issue and fixing the issue on the Extreme. I mean could you imagine a NB issue on THAT? As big as that HS is, and with an OBVIOUS powered RoG emblem embedded in it, that would not be a good thing to happen. It would peeve a lot of OC'ers off to the point where they would just swear off Asus altogether.

And if it drops at the same time as Bulldozer, so much the better. Look what Thuban did for CH IV sales and vice versa.

I don't have a problem with them holding it back a little. Kind of wish they had done so with Formula, but I like to tinker so the NB issue was not that big a deal. And I agree that we made these boards better having this issue to sort out.

1075tbe and 970be (quad core w/ possible core unlock to hexa). more options to think about

The extreme really is for quad crossfire (or sli w/ hac) imo. Seeing how uber expensive the Rampage III extreme is, I have a feeling if, and I stress if, its released might be well close to the $300 usd range. not really worth it, the CHIV formula is a bit pricey as it is now, but I think its the best 890fx board to date.

I found out about this a few days back. I'm the person who first had problems with it on the forums.

There may be other boards with problems yet to be discovered. OCZ just seems to be finding out by trial an error.

E.g. Someone gets the board, has a problem and informs them. For prospective buyers, I recommend that you ask OCZ if they have tested the board on the forums. If they haven't sometimes they will acquire one and do it for you. It'll save you the issues we're going through.

I'd shoot ASUS an e-mail asking them about it so that they see the problem is real and needs fixing fast. I've already done so and I have an ongoing discussion with one of their technicians. I will keep you posted.

Here is the thread that started it all:

I mean think about it.. by the time that board actually comes out (if ever) the Bulldozers will be out or at least on the horizon and so will a new chipset... plus I doubt that anyone would make a full coverage waterblock for that board so would be no fun
It was to have higher power phasing,along with Hydra Chip to allow ATI or nVIDIA cards to be used.Its only good feature really.

So the extreme is SLI certified?

In a word yes.It will have the Lucid Hydra Chipset to allow you to select either ATI or nVIDIA,you will apparently be able to install both at the same time to use whichever one for which application or games it is best suited to.

ok, now I understand, thanks, but I would still cast a shadow of doubt on amd allowing asus to certify their chipsets to nvidia sli. It would be like sleeping w/ the enemy, in the eyes of ati. lol, we still have the good old sli hack if it aint
post #3630 of 13131
I think its something ATI and nVIDIA will not both be happy with.It seems mobo companys are breaking away a bit,the Crosshair Extreme will still have AMD chipsets alongside the Lucid Hydra,it appears its going to just be an added feature on mobo's in the future.Could be good as the playing field will be leveled,nVIDIA mobo's will feature aswell soon i think.Cant see it as a threat to ATI really though,i'll think they'll embrace it.

One things for sure,the GPU market will get very interesting when this chip is widely implemented,the competition in price and performance will become brutal.
