    Re: Asus Republic of Gamers: Crosshair series features!

    It looks like a very nice board, but I'll bet it'll be VERY expensive, as in $250+. The leds around the S-ATA's are a nice touch, and I really like the 8-phase power. The worst thing about this board is the name though. I mean, c'mon! Republic of Gamers?

    Asus seems to be sticking with the ATX configuration, given their new-found fondness for heatpipes. There seems to be some nice features on the board based, upon the cursory information provided, so they may do well with it. But, I won't be able to lend my support as I'm moving to BTX for the airflow characteristics. I'm guessing heatpipe motherboards wouldn't do that well in the Zalman TNN cases, either.

    Tell them to put the LCD poster on a header so that it can be mounted/viewed from the front of the machine instead of the back.

    Looking at it, isn't the back the front ....so to speak ?
    I mean lan party gamers probably have the back as their front.
    Although maybe i'm off base here as never have been to a lan party.

    Maybe that's the scenario.

    Re: Asus Republic of Gamers: Crosshair series features!

    I don't know now.... On the back/on the front ??

    Presumably they could have put it on a header to mount in a drive bay as you suggest.
    Either way it's only post code errors when it won't boot.How often does that happen ?
    Just some extra bling.

    Re: Asus Republic of Gamers: Crosshair series features!

    Doesn't look like it can display much though...

    Re: Asus Republic of Gamers: Crosshair series features!

    Here's what I was looking at:

    ...LCD Poster, located at the back I/O, displays the names of each boot-process instead of using codes. When the system hangs due to a faulty connection or configuration, the LCD Poster will freeze on the displayed process name that caused the hang up, allowing users to know exactly what needs to be fixed...

    I saw that also then followed the link to here:

    Doesn't look like it displays much more than codes though from the picture.
    I guess we'll have to wait for release.

    Re: Asus Republic of Gamers: Crosshair series features!

    I have to agree with Sick Willie, as my machine sits the other way and would sorta be hard to access to see the problem/code without disassembling me workspace...lol
    just put it on the board somewhee like the Tyan server mb at work, so you can see it thru the side panel.

    "IT'S ALL GOOD" on the display would be a good saying if it is.

    The "voice reporter" doesn't care about positioning.
    Just have the voice reporter give more detail about boot problems....

    I turn that off the first time I power up the board.
