ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula Z

I've had this Mobo in my PC for a couple of years now, and I am looking at a new build, pairing this with a 9590 instead of the 6350 I currently have. I've never once had any issues, and as long as a top-end Intel setup stays as expensive as they are, I would wholeheartedly recommend an AMD build with this board. I think that the only thing missing is Wireless functionality, but if you are buying this board it is unlikely you are a casual user, so you will be hardwiring your connection. The diagnosis codes as well make installing parts so easy to get right.


Best MB For AMD

Bought this a few months ago from Overclockers and I am not disappointed. Have this paired up with a 8370fx and I'm really impressed. BIOS is laid out well and easy to navigate. YES it's worth the price. If AMD is your choice then just go for the best!!


As always ROG FTW! *****

ASUS' ROG line never fails to impress and the CVFZ is no exception.

Had this board now, for about 3 months as a change over from the MSI 990FXA-GD80 and the difference in quality and feel is like apples and oranges. It is easily, in my opinion, the best motherboard out there with the 990FX chipset. Tons of features for overclocker enthusiasts and gamers such as an extra 4-pin connector for CPU overclocking and a 4-pin molex connector for multi-GPU configurations.

I have only one small gripe, as i know many others do too online and that's more to do with the software on the driver disc, namely AI Suite II, as it is not accurate at all. Kept getting false readings with it - low voltage on CPU/NB and low RPM readouts on a couple of fans. I just un-installed that but i won't let it take away from the sheer quality and feature rich nature of the mobo.

Simply put - you will NEVER go wrong with and ROG board! If you need a great board for your AMD FX CPU, go for this!

Sper A+++ AMD Mobo

I Both this unit to upgrade from my old board, Asus Crosshair 111 Formula. I thought its time had come to an end and it was a great 5 years, so i had no regrets. Bought this to replace her along with a few other bits an pieces to compliment her. Turns out i now have 2 AMAZING boards, my old one still lives :) It was the PSU that had decided to die on me.

Could not be happier. 2 Gaming rigs on the go shortly. New board is amazing, with the additional sata, built in on board audio, USB 3.0 and additional slots. I can not fault this board in any way at all.

I will add one note. There is 2 ATX 12v power connectors on this board, Unless you are going to go HIGH end gaming and overclock, you will only need to plug in the 8pin ATX, if you plan to overclock, you will need a least a gold standard Corsair 750w PSU with additional 4 pin ATX 12v connectors. the lower end PSU's do not seem to come with these. But i can not dock Asus points for that, i would add points, as they have highlighted a increase for power requirement for overclocking. You will not regret buying this board.



Well its the best mobo i have ever had and is worth the price not been a great fan of amd in the past but this has changed my mind lol. and it looks very sexual when lit up especially with my cool shark red fans thx OC..


Great Mobo

Rock solid mobo - all the BIOS you'ld expect from a ROG board plus more

A great OCing toy :D


Superb AMD mobo

Rock solid performance, more features than you can shake a stick at, an overclockers dream - a great option to pair up with the FX-8 9370 ;)


Super 5* MOBO

Well i got this MOBO Back in 22 Dec, 2011 So going on 2 years now already. Never had an Issue with it, Kept going strong & Wicked Over-clocking Features for any avid user. I have had it over-clicked now for 2 years near & running a 3.3Ghz CPU at 4.3Ghz with no issues.
But I'm here today to Upgrade so not sure what to do with my old Mobo, Maybe make a server ?

Anyway If your thinking of buying this Mobo, Go for it you can't go wrong & it'll never let you down an A1 super Motherboard for first timers or avid users... 9/10


Best AMD mobo

This motherboard is just simply amazing. The features and qualities of this board are second to non. Definitely the best board currently for any AMD system. Overclocking properties are great and I love the fast boot getting into windows 8 within 10 seconds or less depending on how long I choose to post screen.
