Asus Crosshair Motherboard Review

Former staff writer    -   February 26, 2007


Conclusion:

That brings this review to a close. As we can see from all of the benchmarks, the new motherboard with its new chipset is a much better choice than the ASRock ever was.  Throughout all of the tests, the 590 chipset was always one step ahead of the competition.  Asus has done a remarkable job on this motherboard with the addition of the Republic of Gamers accessories, and improvements make this board a real performer.  Packaged with some nice goodies, this motherboard comes loaded to bear.  I will be going further in-depth into the workings of this motherboard, the BIOS, and the overclocking at a later date.  This review was to cover the basics of this motherboard. As I said before, stay tuned for the update into the technologies, as well as the overclocking of this board.  If you are looking for a solid performing motherboard that will take DDR2 800, as well as give you a bevy of accessories and features, then this motherboard is the one for you.

Pros

  • LCD POST
  • On-board power/reset switch
  • On-board Reset CMOS button
  • Board lights

Cons

  • Heatpipe cooling
