Asus crosshair iv formula vs extreme

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is the extreme model worth the extra 70$ over the formula? If so for what reasons.

Im not really sure how important lucid hybrid is to me at the moment but i would like some opinions on this as well.

thanks

also is the formula bluetooth enabled for OCing and monitoring via my android.

Lucid allows you to pair Nvidia and AMD cards together, besides this the boards are virtually the same. Also I should note that the performance when you do this pairing is not up to par with native crossfire or sli.

EDIT- Here's a good comparison for you:

not really unless you just feel like mixing GFX cards just to do it. If you want to crossfire or SLI and get the best performace from either of the setups the CHIV Formula is fine ( it works with the SLI hack )

do you know if it has the bluetooth feature? Its not EXTREMELY important but it would be a huge bonus

The Extreme has Bluetooth file transfer capabilities but to be honest I don't know if it is 100% Bluetooth or just file transfer. I think its the real deal I just haven't used it enough to find out.

Bluetooth was primarily implemented for remote temperature/speed monitoring of your CPU via a Netbook, iPhone, or and Android device. Its very alpha, and I never did get it working on my Droid, but the USB tether worked fine.
