Nice to see Asus incorperating a new heatsink design - reminds me of the Gigabyte UD series

Thanks for review, but I still don't think I'd go for AMD....

very nice M/B I just hope that the FX series is going to be capable of competing with Intel's new Sandy Bridge and the upcoming X79 series but I really doubt it because AMD have been playing catch-up with no real competition with Intel for some time now.

A Video would have been nice but I guess your waiting for the new CPU. Looks like I'm going to have to save my penny's to replace my Crosshair IV.

nice NB/FSB clocks.

were the benchmarks for the C4F the old ones'??? - because, correct me if i am wrong, the 1095T did not exist when those benches were taken.

if so, then the comparison between the C5F and C4F only lay on the extras on the board itself! they will not be truly realised until zambezi is RTM'd.

with this said, the ROG is a ROG at heart, and if you are looking for some raw power from an AMD chip then you cannot go wrong with this line of mobos.

this mobo would be perfect for people wanting to upgrade NOW to a speedy AMD rig, and still have the options for early bulldozers.

it looks good, but i am going to wait for the next generation = FULL BULLDOZER
