Pros: Lots of room on board, Nice packaging. Supports my AMD FX 9370 @ THD of 220W.
Cons: Support software does poor job of measuring temp of cpu's, This board flexes a great deal. I will be extra careful inserting cables and cards. BIOS setup is really poor and the book is no help. Took too long to get it started because the SATA setup has to be in IDE mode to boot from hard disk and that is hidden two levels down in menu's.
Summary: The first is that the board only has two USB 2.0 headers, and I require 3. Luckily, this board has two USB 3.0 headers, and I only use one for my cases front USB 3.0 port. So I purchased a USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter and plugged the third USB 2.0 device into that, and it works flawlessly.
Pros: This is hands-down, the best 990FX motherboard you can buy. It has so many features packed into it for such a good price that it's almost mind-blowing.
Cons: Very few cons, none of which are serious and all of which I had a way around or a fix.
Pros: Very nice board, looks great, handles the juice for my 8350 easily with the 12+2 phase. I got it to 5.0 no problem with 1.48 volt & 2600 on NB & HT, And did 4.8 with 1.45 volt, yes it gets warm like all other boards so plan to cool it down if your gonna mash on the clocks, but a overclock monster if you have water to cool it, and price wise, compare to 250 or whatever fot ASUS CHV-Z. If you know what your doing easy board to work with. I got an extra 300 mhz out of my...
Cons: Only con I can really say and really its not, but ... the LLC is backwards compared to ASUS boards. ASrock 25% is like ASUS 100%. wierd but works same way.Watch the pricing, I looked at board 1 week it was 165 bucks, I went back week later to order and now its 190 bucks. I guess word gettin out its a good board, but a little upset about being a week late on 165.
