Windows 7: Reviews of Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z?

09 Apr 2016   #1

Windows 10 Pro x64 (UPGRADED - 10/20/2016)
Reviews of Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z?

AMD Users Only... (Intel fanboys take yer arse's home. :P)

So I'm waiting on delivery for my new motherboard (ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+, AMD 990 chipset) as my current ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 has gone bad. I'd like some reviews from users who have some good knowledge on the V Formula-Z to give me some pointers. Is it good? Is it better than the IV Formula in the sense of sound and overall performance and durability? I've read and heard that the AM3+ boards are backward compatible with AM3 CPUs (such as my Phenom II X6) (though I am aware that the AM3 motherboards just aren't compatible with AM3+ CPUs)

I'd like to make a discussion on this specific motherboard.

Note: Again, I do not want Intel users posting in here saying "get rid of AMD and get Intel" or "Intel is better than AMD". I don't care for those critics. I'm an AMD user, enough said.

X-fi supreme with Asus Crosshair III
My problem seems to be a common one, yet most people have been able to resolve it where I have not. I have no sound. The only sound device I can see in device manager is a "high definition audio device" which I'm guessing is the x-fi card? I cannot find drivers for the x-fi supreme on the...
