But if you are not going to OC... why would you buy an enthusiast for $$$ when you won't use any of it's features??

edit: nm, I read your post wrong... :-/ Yea I hear ya, I would not recommend buying the CHIV at this point, but for poeple who have one already, espeicallyif they have a waterblock on it, being able to even use the BD without swapping boards is huge!

Red an black is awesome. Well, obviously it is completely subjective.

Still, some people are bashing red & black because it's popular... I mean come on. We get that with music, with Apple, it's getting old.

Anyways, looking forward to it! My CH IV does the job, but I wouldn't mind getting the CH V next year. For now as long as I don't loose any important feature with my current board, I'll just stick BD in the socket and call it a day.

(If BD performs well ^^)

lol i hate people who go against something popular just to be unique/special.. hipster much?

you cant deny that black & red is a very aesthetically pleasing combination of colors, it's been tested and proved in studies

Why can't AM3+ boards look like this...



If Bulldozer doesn't compete with Sandy Bridge, this is what i'm buying along with a 2500K, probably upgrade to Ivy next year.

Really don't like the red and black.
Yeah jump on the bandwagon there I was going to get BD when it came out, but then my motherboard died and well, I am soon to be the owner of one hellva fast i5 2500k and p8p67 pro ^-^

I've nothing against red and black because the CHIV is popular, frankly, that's a ludicrous assumption to make.

As for the Gigabyte board looking awful without the blue bits, I disagree. This is a more basic model, but I just love all that black.



This would be ok i it didn't have the red bit's.


Colour fashions go round in cycles anyway, a few years ago silver tv's were all you could buy, everyone wanted one, now they're all black, you can't buy a silver one.

...before the silver fad, before most of the CHIV owners on here born most probably, everything was in black.

That's the trouble was red and black, it just looks so passé.
