Asus jacks up pricing of Crosshairs V Formula Z

Asus has jacked up pricing of the Crosshairs V Formula Z motherboard for months the price was $229.95 at New egg now its $50 more. The same is true o n other sites. The price has exploded. This is a total ripoff and people should barrage Asus with emails telling them off for treating their customers in this way. They are being rapaciously greedy and need to be punished for it.

I already have a Crosshir V . The Z version has one very significant improvement: 8+2+2 phase control. That little expansion in phase control can make a difference in over clocking ability. Better voltage and temp control is essential to extreme overclocking. There is no justification for raising the product price
from its introductory price of 229.99. If anything the price should be slightly lower as happens for most motherboards several months after product introduction.

i don't think it asus that's doing the price raising its the retailers that's doing it because of supply in demand and asus isn't making the boards fast enough.

I've seen logitech mice on lolazon for like 300-400 bucks.

I think we get one hell of a motherboard for 230+ bucks

if amd stops making the x86 desktop processor a lot of am3+ or am4 board will sky rocket in price.

That is not happening. AMD is releasing a refresh of Vishera in the summer and Is committed to Steamroller in 2014.

No my friend if AMD ever stops making desktop CPUs for AM3+ boards . Those boards won't be worth jack ****. The prices will drop.

Agreed. Basic economis. The law of supply and demand rules supreme.
Both production interuption from the two week shut down and the dicontinuing of the straight formula
are rearing their ugly heads .. maybe.c.
