ASUS Crosshair V Formula

To the middle of the motherboard we stumble into additional connectors and a couple of buttons. Here of course there's room for extra USB connectors and audio headers.

Audio is handled by Realtek's 892 codec allowing 8 channels of audio, pretty much the standard these days on motherboards. We would like to see some more development done on the audio side of motherboards and move away from Realtek. ASUS did incorporate a SupremeFX software suite from creative labs though.

To the right side of the motherboard you'll stumble into three buttons. Power and reset and that OC button. When powered off you can press the OC button (will light up red) and the system automatically overlocks. Our 3.7 GHz processor ended at 4 GHz, which is OK for an automated overclock.

Slot connectivity wise you'll spot four PCI Express x16 slots, a PCI Express x1 slots and a legacy PCI slot. The x16 slots are physical, they'll switch to x16/x16/x8/x8 when in use.

So yeah, the board has many features and hosts other unusual features including a UEFI (GUI BIOS) and for the freaks... eight fan headers!
