Well first off you should come over and check out the Asus Crosshair IV Formula/Extreme thread (link in my sig)

The biggest problem people are having with the extreme is RAM and that is due to people trying to use non-QVL RAM and non-tested ram. The next issue (if you can call it one) is the Hydra chip. It can be a PITA and depending on what your GPU plans are would depend on which one of the boards I would suggest.

As I said come over to the club and ask some questions of the people that own them and are using them. I am sure we can answer what ever you need to know.

And as sandman said feel free to PM me with what ever questions you may have. I will try to get you pointed in the right direction! If I dont get back to you it is probably because I am working but dont worry I will get back to you.
