Experience: 1 Years
Pros
Good cooling, Good integrated audio, allows 3way xfire or SLI
Cons
only 1 LAN, only 2USB2 headers
Summary
Good board, I've had some problems but it is generally good.There are only 2 USB 2.0 headers and no firewire which is not good being that the primary use of this computer for me is video work.

Pros
solid motherboard, lots of power, easy to overclock
Cons
none so far
Summary
Running with FX-6100 overclocked to 4.2ghz. Only fails Prime test on the 6th core. Weird, but windows is solid. Launched Battlefield and Starcraft 2 at the same time, ALT-tab to both and no problems.

Had it running stables in windows 7 at 4.5ghz

The motherboard is amazing, even for its price point. It comes with all of the features that you need. The BIOS is decent; very easy to navigate. The OC profiles work fine.

Pros
Lotsa Features
Nice Bios (must update  though)
easy setup
Cons
Need to do an update  to Bios straight away otherwise you may have Ram compatibility issues
Better have all SATA drives
Summary
Bought to replace a Crosshair 3. My 3rd top shelf ASUS motherboard and so far just as good if not better than the rest.
The feature make it worth it the investment just make sure to upgrade the BIOS right away or you will have memory issues (at least I did) once you do that it will be right as rain.
The bios is actually...Pretty...and I know small thing, but it is nice to go into a bios that doesn't look like a left over from my old days of setting up refurb IBM computer at the local computer shop :)
I paired it with a New 6 core Bulldozer and Overclocked it without any issues.

Pros
Excellent Design
Great BIOS features
Easy Overclocking
Cons
None I can see
Summary
Very impressive motherboard, and if you like ASUS like me you will be impressed as well. This motherboard has a very great design, and is definitely a big pick for you gamers out there. The BIOS is slick as well since it has a GUI and can setup profiles for overclocking. You can simply change the profiles by a push of a button on the motherboard as well. I would highly recommend this board to anyone looking for something to use with their new 8 Core AMD like myself. I hooked this thing up with 16GB 2133 DDR3 ram and a 3.1GHZ 8 Core AMD, it works great.

Pros
great features, usb 3.0, overclocking features, and EAX 5.0 SUPPORT, get the dream of EAX on your board. can support alot of voltage.
Cons
all the feature software like deamon tools pro and anti virus software expired before I even opened the box and the MB was manufactured a month ago...

language of bios was set to Chinese as default so had to switch it.
Summary
a overal great board, remember to get serial ATA sata drives as it does NOT support IDE (those old ribben drives or hard drive connections.

overal great board, wish it came with serial sata power cables just in case.

Comment: The Crosshair V Formula is an excellent piece of machinery, and with Crossfire and SLI support things just got more interesting, as the motherboard gains value, features and could be real fast once AMD's Bulldozer processors are launched
