About a year ago now, I bought a 1090T processor with a Crosshair IV Formula motherboard (from NCIX of course!). Back then, I thought "This overclocking and performance can't be matched".....Than I bought the i7 2600k and this beautiful red and black piece of awesome that is this motherboard. My processor went up to 4.8GHz absolutely EFFORTLESSLY, and I have had absolutely ZERO issues with this board. The sensors on this board are SPOT ON, and the UEFI is absolutely gorgeous. By far the very BEST of Sandy Bridge boards as of this review.
This is probably one of the best motherboards out there right now for Sandy Bridge. There are so many tools available for it that you can easily feel overwhelmed. Overclocking is easier than ever (and far more robust) - I recommend doing it manually due to issues with the software suite. The sensors and such are a boon. You can easily view voltages, fan speeds, temps, etc. ROG Connect is awesome though but does require another computer nearby for real-time monitoring and tweaking.
