Looking to build an ultimate gaming rig and need a motherboard with the latest chipset to handle over clocking and some high-end video card(s), than take a serious look at the Crosshair IV Formula from ASUS.  The Crosshair IV Formula is the most features rich motherboard TechwareLabs has reviewed to date of this review. The Crosshair IV Formula includes the AMD 890FX chipset which includes some features which provide up to 4 ATI Radeon HD graphics cards with ATI CrossfireX and other features like SATA 6Gb/s  and not to forget the over clocker’s play ground with AMD Overdrive software. The compilation of all the features packed into this board in one platform is brought to you by the Republic of Gamers (ROG).

To get understand what the Republic of gamers is all about, here is their creed taken from

“The Republic of Gamers is committed to delivering the most innovative and best performing PC solutions to enhance the gaming experience of power users.”


“A History of the Republic of Gamers
The Birth of a Republic – The Republic of Gamers (ROG) was formed in 2006 with the sole purpose of bringing gaming and overclocking specific hardware to gamers and overclockers the world over.
