Asus Crosshair Evolution



With the latest X370 Chipsets really bringing the AMD platform up to date we thought it would be fun to take a quick trip down memory lane, and the ASUS Crosshair range has an unbroken lineage, so is perfect for this purpose.

What a great article. Will go make a cup of tea in a minute and read this one though.

I had the CH2 and the CHVFZ. Both were wonderful boards, with only one issue with the 2. It did not support Crossfire, and if you put two Radeons in it it looped at post /facepalm.

So sadly I had to get rid of it, because I loved everything else about it. The VFZ was just pure, unadulterated class.

Cheers Bryan, love stuff like this



CH2 goodness

Great video tom! nice to see you have the whole family of crosshairs together (I would like to see the crossblade in there too but I guess it would be a bit off-topic)

Two sidenotes: Audio, I guess asus would have thought "if they are paying that amount of money they can buy their own fancy audio cards"
e-sata: really really good stuff if you do a lot of IT-support stuff, e-sate is just the normal sata interface, with usb 2.0 you didn't get the full sata speed and the usb protocol had some overhead which slows down drives and has some problems with large file transfers, ALSO, you get full acess to the drive as you would in a normal sata... External boot ssds/hdds were a thing for some people

Totally awesome video loved it, on a side note did you end up getting your motherboard blanks mounted into a display case or frames?

Does that fact that half of your childhood pc-related memories are almost identical to mine (we had a spectrum after the ZX81) mean I am 'frickin old' too? oh no...

Holy nostalgia!

It reminds me of having the original Asus Rampage Formula motherboard.

Here was my first build thread with that board nearly 9 years back now:
