  • Summary: So far this has been a great mother board I like the extreme tuner. The fast boot is great, the x fast usb 3 is awesome the hole set up of the overall board is great no complaints except 2 of the cpu fan pins were bent I carefully bent them back. I was so glad they didn't snap off.

Owned it forever

Kyle S., Newegg
26 April 2015
  • Summary: really have been thinking of picking up a new chip for this board , but constantly talk myself out of it. Probably pick up a FX9xxx to daily , some will like the extra power over fx6xxx, i would how ever like to pick up a 4 core to try and push.
  • Pros: Easy overclock LLC varies little (+-.016v) best i have found for AM3+ Owned since launch Paired with Fx6300 Since this board was realeased day 1. Overclocked well 5ghz @1.46v, after chip break in i have settled into 4.5ghz @ 1.37 Bios are easily updated if your not to savy in that department. Boa...
  • Cons: UEFI Bios can be a little wonky to get use to, it is also my first board that had it when i purchased it. Still used the keyboard.

Unfortunately not this board.

Linda B., Newegg
6 April 2015
  • Summary: I'll get an RMA started and take it from there. I do like the board and hopefully we'll be in business with the next board. I tried to be as concise as I could with my review. Too many reviews where it was stated "handles everything I throw at it" or "runs like a champ".
  • Pros: The SATA connections, BIOS access through a mouse, easy BIOS navigation, speed through which my photography programs performed.
  • Cons: Unfortunately the USB had a lot of random screen freezes. The RAM sticks were tested with Memtest individually for 4 hours at a time. They were also tested together, all with no problems. H2testw showed a bad PCI IDE. Those things happen. The tests were run during and after multiple OS installs. ...

Great board except for integrated sound

Kenton G., Newegg
3 April 2015
  • Summary: This ia a great board, but when I installed it, I found that I was constantly hearing a low hum and then I would hear noise as I moved the mouse or tapped away on the keyboard. Played with the drivers and nothing helped.
  • Pros: Rock solid performer.
  • Cons: Horrible integrated sound card

Great Motherboard

Fred A., Newegg
28 March 2015
  • Pros: Great Motherboard all around. Running FX-8350 at 4.5Ghz without a sweat with CPU at 1.337 Vcore (very low compared to other peoples results). Could go much higher but 4.5Ghz was high enough for me. VRM stays plenty cool with my fan setup and AR03 heatsink. LOTS of features.
  • Cons: None so far.

It's nice.

Travis C., Newegg

  • Summary: I have a paper box filled with shards of glass covered in my own blood inside my room.
  • Pros: More than I'll ever need. Looks beautiful. Supports a CPU with up to 8 cores.
  • Cons: The factory where this was produced is located nearby a WWII German graveyard.

Lots of features!

Benjamin W., Newegg
23 February 2015
  • Summary: There's some throttling that happens when the processor or board get hot enough. This cannot be disabled, but it's for safety reasons. I read in another review that a little airflow over the VRM's may prevent this, but I haven't confirmed. The throttling hasn't been bad enough to concern me.
  • Pros: This board has lots of features, both physically on the board and within the BIOS. 2-digit LED output next to on-board power and reset buttons. BIOS has every overclocking setting I've ever heard of along with lots of other options for power management, booting, and cooling control and monitoring...
  • Cons: Temps from programs like coretemp do not read the same as the BIOS... in fact, they read much much lower than actual. This makes using live monitoring software that sits nicely in the system tray useless. A program may read the CPU at 30°C when it's actually at 50°C, which could be devastating! A...
