  2. Both are great for overclocking with good cooling.

    This is the exact thread i was looking for. I am looking for the same thing but comparing the Sabertooth to the Formula V.
  4. Formula Z would be the answer.
  5. I have a midtower case that supports 7 fans that i would like to utilize. would the Formula V still be the answer?
  6. Yes the Sabertooth is great , but tends to have a lot of issues.
  7. Yes, when i did my build, i shortchanged myself and went with the M5A97 2.0. woops... not even usp 3.0 compatible
  8. Asrock Extreme 9 990FX is another great board.
  9. 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.
  10. I agree 4 of my 5 boards are ASUS.
  11. Thanks for the advice. I look around for the Formula... Unfortunately New Egg is out of stock...
  12. Some of the boards are getting hard to find , I own the rev 2 Sabertooth.
  13. BTW, is there any differences between the Formula V and Z? Just curious the new one isnt that much more to buy.
  14. Here's the one you want.
