s While $220 is quite a bit to ask for a motherboard, I think Asus has added enough useful features to the Crosshair V Formula to make it worthy of consideration. Starting with excellent hardware design with robust features and quality components,...

The fact of the matter is that no one buying this board is going to run a processor at stock, and really if you do, well you are just stupid. The ASUS Crosshair IV Formula was built to be a badass AMD overclocker and that is exactly what it is. Its...

I have to admit I ended up really liking this board. The design really grew on me, the performance is top notch for an AMD board, and the featureset is again without parallel. The board runs cool and really does not suck up that much extra...

Allgemein +-With the Crosshair IV Formula Asus has an all solid motherboard in its portfolio, which is able to score well in benchmarks and also comes with a well thought layout. Only when overclocking the board you'll reach the limit quite quickly...

ASUS Crosshair IV Formula is somewhat cheaper than Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD7, but the difference is small. Both mainboards are actually quite expensive and intended for a small category of computer enthusiasts. As we said in the beginning of...

ASUS really hit a home run with the Crosshair IV Formula. I feel like I've only scratched the surface talking about the features this board has. For a gamer or overclocker that wants the most control and flexibility over their system, this is the...

I've been using this board for over a month now in the Shrimps Lab. Daily testing it with several AMD CPU's, some weekend LN2 bench sessions and the board still appears as fresh as when it arrived. If Asus called this board the Crosshair IV...

The Crosshair IV Formula BIOS includes a few built-in overclocking profiles and the system will do its own overclocking and stability test cycle if the Turbo Key II button is activated. Experienced overclockers will, however, find a relatively complete...

There's defnitely no coincidence in AMD sending out the review chips of its hex-core processor snugly secured in Asus' Crosshair IV Formula board. It's the finest current example of the 890 chipset. And this is what we've come to expect...

Hardcore overclockers might put the Crosshair IV Formula on top of their lists, even though it didn’t win our basic overclocking tests. Instead, this is a board designed to support higher CPU current at higher voltage levels typically...
