Unboxing the Crosshair IV...

Asus ROG Crosshair IV Formula

Our Crosshair IV Formula sample arrived in true Republic of Gamers style, sporting the division's logo and easily distinguishable colour scheme. The box was not as large as expected, however it felt robust and tightly packed. At the top there's an opening that reveals two more boxes inside...

The first box contains the motherboard itself, held firmly in place by cardboard tabs. The second box contains the Crosshair IV Formula's accessory set.

Within the accessory set you'll find a number of items. Aside the obligatory User Guide, Driver Disc and I/O shield, you will also find two SATA cables, one CrossfireX bridge, additional USB 2.0 + e-SATA ports (occupies one expansion bay), a Male-to-Male USB Cable (for ROG Connect) and Asus Q Connect adapters. Overall the set of accessories are fair. However we would have hoped to see more SATA cables included in the package.

The Board...

...and what a board it is. As mentioned previously Asus have done away with the"childish" blue and white colour scheme on their Crosshair motherboards, replacing them with shades of red and the obligatory blacks. If you're one that cares greatly about the aesthetics of the motherboard you're buying then you should be in for a treat. There isn't anything particularly marmite about the Crosshair IV Formula's physical appearance and we reckon it'll suit a number of system configurations quite nicely.  


Time for some close up shots...

Wow, this is cheap for a ROG and that is, if it does turn out to launch around this price.

I suspect the Extreme would be more, am guessing around ~£200?Quote

Yeah i was thinking around the £225 mark, got a few months till my course starts so more than enough time for some more boards running the new chipset to come out and compare the performance/overclocks, i just hope these keep ahead of them as "Well it is the best board i can buy for it" is more than a good enough excuse to buy such a good looking mobo.Quote

Compared to intel offerings with similar features, £167 seems like good value to me. Compared to other AMD boards it's a little pricey, but the performance looks hard to beat.Quote
