Asus Crosshair III Formula

 

This AM3 motherboard strikes a very fine balance between features and price.

In essence the new Crosshair III is an M4A79T Deluxe with some useful extra features that are essentially free of charge. Brilliant!

The Crosshair III Formula is yet another addition to the Asus Republic of Gamers line-up, but this time it's based around AMD's latest AM3 socket and 790FX chipset, unlike previous Crosshair boards which used Nvidia chipsets. ...

Asus ROG Strix Scar Edition (GL503VS) Laptop Review

 

This Asus laptop has power and style, but is it worth the money?

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

Overall I am satisfied with the board. I am a bit sad that even though it has some nice overclocking features, I never could overclock any thing by very much without bluescreens. My cpu only does 300mhz above base, tried everything. Ram never could...
