AMD Asus Sabertooth 990fx vs Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z 990fx?

Hi I'm thinking about which of these two MB I should buy.

They are aroun $35 apart, but I just compared them in the asus website and they are just so similar, I've seen some videos overviewing the motherboards and they both seem very good, the Sabertooth looks so durable too. So is the Crosshair really better than the Sabertooth or does it really depends on my needs? maybe it costs more because it's ROG?

What I do on my PC is Rendering(3D & 2D), programming and compiling software and gaming of course. I'm going to buy one of these, but I really can't decide.

I hope the right choice is the crosshair because I have Red Corsair Memory and it doesn't match the color of my current motherboard and it's killing me inside lol

    Well, sounds like you need to get the Crosshair then!
  2. Asus CROSSHAIR V FORMULA is best
  3. Sabertooth is more about durability and the long warranty, while the formula is more about performance. Both will probably work just fine for you the ROG maybe doing a bit better as that's what the ROG line is for. In the end it's still probably going to be mostly about your other hardware
