Im a huge fan of the Sabertooth class of Asus boards. No fancy features like remote starting your car from the BIOS or anything. Just rock solid, near indestructible build quality and ferocious overclocking and cooling. But if you can afford the price premium of a Crosshair, no reason not to get one. It has the same superb build quality of the Sabertooth and who knows, you might be overclocking one cold morning before going to work so maybe youll want to remote start your car and get it warmed up.

Thanks for your input. I don't see the big difference in the price ($190 vs $220) pretty close. My 790FX-GD70 is not the mobo for my 1090, and I want to unlock its overclock potential, but I don't know which one is the right choice.

Had to RMA orig board and Asus took great care of me - had new factory tested board within 1 week, which I NEVER had an issue with and its been rock solid since day 1 - it's well worth the wait IMHO

I bought a chvf a couple months ago. I'm disappointed.
I am having super slow bios post before windows. It will take 4-7min just get to the windows start screen.
It will crash windows when I bring my memory up to its rated speed (2133). It defaults to 1600.
Also, coming from a m4a79 deluxe, I noticed that the pcie performance is 15% slower based on framerates from 3dmark06.
My gtx 570 superclocked runs slower on the chvf and will not downclock when not in use.
I am considering going with another model, maybe the sabertooth.
The replacement board they gave me was used and would lock me out of the bios and would not boot windows.
This has been almost a total disappointment.
I say almost because I,ve had my fx-8150 running temorarily at 4500mhz.
It overclocks like a mother!

So, it sound like Sabertooth is the right choice with cheaper price + 5 years warranty guys?

if you're patient enough you might be able to score one of them open box. i saw an open box crosshair v for about $150 a week or so ago, and picked up an open box sabertooth for myself. $185 (at the time) mobo for $131 shipped; i'll give it a good home!
