Asus M4A78T-E
3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 23, 2010

The Crosshair III Formula is a mid-range gaming motherboard from Asus, released in mid-2009. This ATX board features support for AMD Phenom II processors, DDR3 memory modules and up to 2 PCI-E x16 graphics cards running in CrossFireX mode. USB 2.0 and SATA 3 GB/s connectors facilitate storage and peripheral connectivity. The Asus Crosshair III Formula is based on the AMD 790FX/SB750 chipset, meaning numerous modern AMD processors can be used with this motherboard. As an enthusiast product, higher-end 140W and 45nm CPUs are supported, allowing users to maximize their system performance with Phenom II, Athlon II and Sempron 100 processors. 16 GB of DDR3 memory can be installed through 4 DIMM slots. Integrated video with HDMI output is provided by the ATI Radeon HD 3300. A variety of proprietary Asus software comes in the box, including a built-in Linux distribution called “Express Gate” as a way to quickly connect to ... PROS: (1) easy BIOS upgrades from a USB flash drive - no need to enter the BIOS (2) lots of overclocking features - designed for system tweakers (3) includes a variety of proprietary utilities from Asus (4) includes integrated graphics - no need to purchase a discrete video card up front (5) supports 1080p video playback out of the box ... CONS: (1) only supports one of the multi-GPU standards - CrossFireX (2) poor customer support from the manufacturer (3) USB 2.0 support only - lacks USB3 connectivity (4) SATA 3Gb/s connectors only - no SATA 6Gb/s support

5 Star Review   By member jimspahr - Feb 18, 2010   

Strengths: Stable, full of options for OC'ing, no surprises, nice great raid controller, it's got an external COM1 connector! Good audio, decent video (Then I installed my regular video card.)

Weakness: none I've found so far

System Config: Asus M4A78T-E motherboard (obviously) AMD Phenom II 955 BE 8Gig GSkill RAM (4 X 2Gig) ATI 1800 PCI-E Video Card (older, but still rocks) Zalman CNPS9900 CPU fan (which is awesome!) Windows7 64-bit (it actually works!) 2 RAID0 arrays (motherboard raid controller): 2 X Western Digital 320G (3G/s SATA) for 640G 2 X Seagate 160G (1.5G/s SATA) for 320G

Great Board
5 Star Review     

Strengths: It has a great manual and tons of great options. Has stayed very cool in my case (Antec 900) and have never encountered problems with it. 7.1 built in sound, and a 128 mb 4 series ati graphics onboard

Weakness: I still have yet to find any

Although it was difficult to install my Sunbeam Core Contact cooler because it was so close to the edge of my case. This was not a deal breaker, but just a note to anyone who is thinking of buying this case with this motherboard and installing the same cooler as I. Although it is highly unlikely.

5 Star Review   By HGC on Mwave.com - Apr 21, 2009   

Strengths: Very solid and many features

Weakness: Perhaps a bit pricey, though worth it

If you need an AM3 board, you'll be happy with this one. It has many overclocking options that are easy to implement, it's stable, the manual and website are good, the onboard audio is outstanding, and it has a very handy cartridge for installing the front panel case wires. It has too many other features to mention.
