I really want this board, but still deciding what cpu to pair it with, it will be purely for gaming etc, not really a huge overclocker but if i can get the cpu to like 3.8ghz and still be able to play games safely then i dont mind, im thinking either the Phenom 955Be or the new 970Be, thoughts?

I doo think its pretty cool that you can have one sent to you and pop one out and pop the other in
It would have been cooler if the board had dual BIOS chips. You could have switched to the secondary one, then reflashed the original. If that didn't work Asus could have sent you another chip, but you would have had no down time.

Im getting the Crosshair IV extreme in the mail soon, just wondering what kind of ram I should get. Most of you guys know very much more then I do about these boards so any suggestions would be appriciated.

yeah, btw. They dont have to be Super-power-$$$-awesome-ram, just sufficient enough for some OC and gaming

thanks

If you buy one of the above buy the 955,you'll save money and can turn it into 970 by upping the multi.The 970 is exactly the same just they've adjusted the multi for you,and lets face it you dont buy a black edition for stock speeds,thats like buying a formula 1 car to go get your post from bottom of your drive.

I agree with waht you saying. Iam lucky that it has all still worked.
The new bios chip will be here tomorrow preloaded with 1105. I do hope that solves this. You got to like the service they give with this mobo

If your willing to spend the $ a 970 costs I'd say get a x6 1055t. I mean why not, it will overclock the same and if you find a deal (they are all over the place, frys has it for $150) it can be the same price as the quad.
