    but i want the OG members to sign up first.
    I hope to get involved with this pretty soon, but as I stated previously I don't have 100 posts yet. Besides, I need some time to put together a selection of components so I can test properly without gutting my own rig to pull it off heh. I did however get myself that test bench I mentioned a while ago... Yay me!

    I don't think anyone can properly review the Crosshair V Formula without a FX (Bulldozer) Processor. We can't see the hardware perform its best.

    Yes and no. I have looked around at some of the reviews out there already and a lot of reviewers are claiming that the CHV is a great upgrade from the CHIV even without BD. There is something to be said for how HW performs with what equipment is available at release. The X6 processors came out a long time after AM3 was released. You could say that you cannot "properly" review the CHV until the penultimate AM3+ chip is released, but no one wants to wait that long before considering whether or not to buy. That said I know where you are coming from, but when BD does release, it would be more about the chip's performance rather than that of the board.

    The problem is, what if we bricked the board? Or something went wrong with it? Then who's at fault and what price shall we pay?

    I'd love to test those AMD motherboards, but like I mentioned, what happen when it all goes wrong?

    i waited about 15 minutes after it was released to buy this board..after having the c4e..
    the fact that later on, sometime in the future there would be a new cpu..bonus.
    And so far, worth every penny.
    Personally I cant wait to see what these guys come up with...and who.

    I was just thinking about that the other day. I would assume we would have to uphold some sort of OV/OC limit as a preventative measure, but it would be nice to see how far it can be pushed before something gives, haha!

    I don't think those reviews are for push the board until it give up, Asus have already the collaboration of well know OCers to do so. I think someone can play with the board and make comment, evaluation without be irresponsible. If you do the thing the right way, bricking a board should not be an issue.

    agree, you can only brick a board if you do something extreme and this is where you should state what you plan to do with the board. if your goal is the overclock the **** out of the board, then we probably wont pick you. we have people that already do extreme overclocking, theres no need for us to have more people tell us the same thing. im looking for people that can review the board for everyday use. quality in gaming, audio, applications, features, etc etc. to the avg joe that would buy this board, do the features live up to what it is. if its a defect, then its a different story, but ive already pretested the board to know it turns on and it can clock. you'll end up sending the board back to us, to test before sending out again. so we will know who bricked a board. and if the board dies, well... **** happens and i rather you be honest with me than to try and lie so we can figure out a replacement board for the next person.

    Yeah, you pretty much need a "You break it, you buy it." policy.
