[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 715

I vote the Extreme being better overall unless your going to a 1100T ...since there seem to be problems...unless ASUS fixed it already.
Huh? 1100T problems?

Formula has great built-in sound (for a video gamer) and the Extreme board is more geared to very high end overclocking, like LN2. If you don't need that NOR if you have no intention of using Lucid, go for the Formula, use the extra cash to at least get a 1090T, or 2000 MHz ram with CAS 7. Both boards are awesome, but one is so blindingly awesome its almost entirely unnecessary.

LAN Drivers from either Intel's site, or the betas from ASUS stop that BSOD. Super loud fan? I have had two boards and haven't ever heard the NB fan, I check sometimes to make sure the little punk is even on.

On a personal note:
I have been a little busy bee.

HWBot: Me breaking 5GHz



Custom flashing my GTX 580s with the MVKTech's Nibitor and then pwning 3DMark11 Extreme:



Unigine Basic: Ranked 7th on HWBot for Dual-GPUs:
HWBOT Link



Unigine Extreme: Ranked 18th on HWBot for Dual-GPUs:
HWBOT Link



Pwning my RAM into Submission:
(Stock 2000 @ 9-9-9-28-110-2T @ 1.65v)



I took a nap. Drove to Florida and back...

And created a for sale thread... again... here.

Selling the Extreme + 1100T + Razer Black Mamba + SteelSeries KB + Laptop CPU + Dominator GTs + GeIL Black Dragons

No, I am not on the "bulldozer" or the "bridge" drugs like everyone else seems to be. Just storing some cash for bills.

I am sated with the i7 980x for at least... two months. I might get a second ThermoChill PA120.3 and replace my EK 140mm Rad and just run two PA120.3, but I have enough heat dissipation for the cpu and GPUs so its almost unnecessary. I was thinking/dreaming of getting me a 3 monitor setup... I just can't afford 3 of these GD235Hz's.

When are you getting your second 580?

OH, I am selling my Mamba, and getting a R.A.T.

Need to get the first one first. In order to do that I need to sell the 5870's going slow but hopefully in a day they will be gone... Then the 580 will be on it's way and in ~6 months the second or I will step up to what ever is new

ASUS doesn't seem to care about the Extreme version.. it has 3 BIOS updates(last one in 2010/11/19) compared to the 9 that Formula has..

Im not sure if the same CPU's are supported for both either.. since the Formula got yet another recent update to support more CPU's..im guessing that's the one you just got..

Huh?

The Extreme board has only been out since October. The Formula has been out since April.

As far as BIOS goes: don't fix whats not broken.

As far as CPUs go 1100T worked on the release Bios... which is weird since 1100T didn't come out till November, but compatible none the less.

This is due to AMD (and intel) informing manufactures about product specs months before the general public knows anything about them.
