The HT 3.1 link is critical for upcoming processors.

Interesting,

Just to clarify, is it critical for 4-6 cores Dozer chips to ? Or only critical for the 8 cores variant ?

Some of the Motherboard vendors already said they would support Dozer on 890 chipset, so they wont support the 8 cores chips ?

"Support" means it'll run. It doesn't mean it will run a peak performance.

The Radar app looks just up my ally, I am always monitoring my temps and speeds via my 2nd monitor.
With my Crosshair IV Formula, I was able to hit 300 MHz FSB easliy. I know it's a 890FX instead of 990FX, but it should give you some idea of what can be expected. :)

Post ASUS did a very nice job on this mobo

Very nice review MAC. Always appreciate the detailed, neat and tidy look of the HWC reviews. ASUS did a very nice job on this mobo, including the UEFI. Though a very solid board, I must admit, the current performance numbers did take some wind ouf of my sails...we shall see (again) when BD comes around in 60 days.

Just noticed one typo in your Conclusion: "...have expected to the paired with AM3+ Zambezi...", I think it should be a "be".

Thanks for the review (still have to go through line-by-line, but have the general feel for the board... ;) ).

This might just be the thing to scratch that pre-BD itch I've had for a few months. My 1090t is still serving me well, but folding still requires Nvidia cards for proper PPD, and this would allow me to slap a second 560ti into my main rig for some SLI goodness, while using the crosshair IV (paired with a lower end AM3 chip) as a GPU folding farm MB. Gonna have a look at tonight's sale to see what I can come up with. :)

This isn't not actually the highest possible bus speed, but it is high enough to max out any locked processor using conventional cooling.
