Asus Crosshair IV Extreme

Packaging & Initial Impressions

Packaging & Initial Impressions

As we've shown previously, the Crosshair IV Extreme comes in a large crimson themed box. The front is left mostly plain with the exception of product name and a couple of Asus, AMD, ATi and Lucid brand logos.

The box opens from the top, revealing two plain boxes. As one would guess, the top box contains the Crosshair IV Extreme's accessory set, while the other contains the motherboard itself. The boxes themselves are strong and once bundled together in the outer packaging, there's very little scope for the contents to be damaged.

As you would expect with a Republic of Gamers package, the accessory set is quite vast. Aside the obligatory manual and I/O shield, you receive no less than eight SATA cables, ROG Connect USB, Bluetooth module, additional USB and Firewire (via PCI bay) and some sticker "bling" for your chassis.

...and then we get to the motherboard itself. Again unsurprisingly the Crosshair IV Extreme follows a similar theme to its lesser sibling, the IV Formula. The extra 1" width on this E-ATX motherboard is more than apparent in person.

Good review as usual though it did seem a little short. I had a bad feeling regarding the actively cooled heatsink when i first looked at the board a few weeks back, out of interest how hot does it get when the fan is unplugged? Hydra performance is thankfully better than i expected too. At £250 its not cheap especially with AMD's new none compatible CPU's coming quite soon. Never the less I will give this board some serious consideration for my new build.Quote
