ASUS Crosshair IV Formula Motherboard Review @ EOC!

EXTREME Overclocking has just posted a review on the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula Motherboard.
With the release of the 890FX chipset, ASUS steps up to the plate with their latest top of the line AMD motherboard, the Crosshair IV Formula. Most of the new features for the 8-Series chipset can be found in the SB850 southbridge, the most notable being native support for SATA 6Gb/s. Like the 790FX chipset, the 890FX has 44 PCIe 2.0 lanes, allowing for CrossfireX dual x16 graphics card support.

I just updated the review covering the fan headers a little more in-depth. This is the first board I've seen with such extensive control, and even eight fan connectors! Also I totally forgot to talk about the ASUS Turbo Unlocker feature. Very similar to AMD's Turbo Core or Intel's Turbo Boost technology, except this feature works for any Black Edition AMD CPU!

Jason! Awesome review man! I was waiting to hear about this one. Now I am trying not to be critical. But on the first page it is 4 PCI-E lanes (not 44.) Gonna go read that extended part now!

I really like this board! I think Bulldozer maybe compatible the socket AM3, so this board may be a good buy. My only issue is, that with some of the boards, the nortbridge heat sink is not making proper contact. There have been reports that the pins may be slightly too long. I hope Asus rectifies this, because this board is awesome.

err, I think 44 is correct. Otherwise you could only have 1 4x slot or 4 1x slots , and then you couldn't have any SATA drives or gigabit lan, etc.
