Asus’ ROG series are running very successfully over the years. It is not only aimed towards PC Gamers, but also towards hardware enthusiasts, a trend where some motherboard manufacturers are following this “trend” for some time. After all, many enthusiasts are gamers have started giving more attention towards overclocking to get more performance from their existing system.
But with a great board, you need to have equally great skills. Having money is not the only part that is important, you need to have skills to use such hardware. ROG is made for people -or at least how I see it- who appreciate hardware and know how to take most of it- like how other manufacturers have. Some manufacturers, however, have a successful run but others disappear into oblivion. This is the Republic of Gamers Crosshair V Formula-Z. This uses the AMD 990 FX chipset and with the ROG’s premium features we’ll take a look if this motherboard is worth it.
Crosshair V Formula-Z uses 990FX Chipset and AMD950 SB. Compared to its predecessor, the extra Z would be having some plus point.
