Reg bulldozer will work with the board, no one knows which combo of the quad hexa or octa will work though. It could just be the quad and hexa with the Octa only being supported by a true AM3+ board. Or all 3 could be supported right off the bat with E-Bulldozer being AM3+/990FX only or even a different mobo chipset.
UhHuh ... Just watch and learn.

As I tell my friends, I am not old. I am experienced!

The Crosshair V Formula is almost ready mate, samples are everywhere and it seems we have a winner - do yourself a favor and wait some more.

Just read the reviews carefully. Several with DOA or broken components upon receipt and they still give good rates?

Also, some giving good rates when, for example, they say that RAID is dysfunctional! Others that they can't get into BIOS? Those are two basic items that any good enthusiast mobo should be able to do with no problems. If you can't get into BIOS thats a one-egger to me. The BIOS guy resolved his issue bu DL'ing a newer BIOS version. That shouldn't be happening in my book. Good resolution but not the correct one.

Personally... I'd be very careful with that board.

I do like the position of the 8-pin CPU connector. Not too keen on the IDE or the FDD connectors. FDD's today are USB. Doubt any enthusiast would be using older FDD drives that still require the old but I will not dismiss it though. You have a modern board like that, you are going to be using the most up to date components for it. If you are only looking to XFire, then you'd be good. One reviewer mentions SLI'ing on it so I am assuming he has tried the SLI hack on it and it worked???

Just my opinion though... This is like buying an LED flat screen with a wired remote control.

Very, very sound advice. That was what I was suggesting but not overtly recommending.

Never, ever try to mate a future technology with a past technology. You'll have regrets every time.

Proof please.

I haven't seen these "samples" only seen photoshopped boxes in two places which I doubt the validity. Look it up in Google there aren't many citable references about CVF.

Not trying to be a smart alec about it, not trying to pick a fight. I really would like to see something other than a sofpedia or techlemming reference.

I doubt this also because I don't believe that ASUS would waste time with 3017 for either Formula or Extreme. That would be a waste of labor resources if you're planning on launching the new RoG platform with the new CPU.

Well, Asus does promise compatibility with Bulldozer, sure a few features wont be available. We dont know which ones yet, but most likely Cool&Quiet and Turbo Core.
Not to mention, Asus was told by AMD to make the Crosshair IV and m4a89 boards compatible with a bios update or obviously got the permission to do so. I doubt AMD would tell or allow Asus to build boards meeting certain specs cap and promise something knowing it would cause widespread grief. Or perhaps I have too much faith in humanity xD.

As I had said, we don't know which of the new (IE, this june) bulldozer cpus will be compatible with the bios update, but we can bet that at least one of them will be, but such information should be provided at launch.

As I also stated, I fully expect E-Bulldozer to only be supported on true AM3+/990fx and not be backwards compatible as Asus says the bulldozer being released this June will be.

The only thing I can see going wrong and giving grief is if you try and OC one of the bulldozer chips on a 890fx board, but if the archi is good enough it'll still prove a great improvement over a 955 @ 3.8GHz when its at stock clocks so that would be fine for me...until I snag a Crosshair V.

I am still inexperienced but I have faith in Asus and AMD, maybe a little too much and maybe im a little too young and naive. But I never make a final descion or purchase without seeing cold hard proof first.
