This is the exact thread i was looking for. I am looking for the same thing but comparing the Sabertooth to the Formula V.

i look into that as well. I have the AMD 8350 as well. Ive always used Asus in the past, It might be hard to change.

I was looking at the specs... Could I still use the same memory on this board? I have Corsair Vengeance LP 1866
