ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AMD-890FX Motherboard Review

ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AMD-890FX Motherboard
In April of 2010, AMD introduced the final parts of their "Leo" platform: new iterations of their 45nm processor family and the supporting 8-series chipset. Unlike Intel, which seems to delight in spawning new CPU socket architectures, AMD continues to support the AM3 socket, so upgrades are easier and cheaper.
