Summary: I won't offer any new insights here. My issue...the board is getting older and stale in looks and technology. On the tech side its solid and that's good but old age has set in and its showing. Asus please update, look what can be offered and move. Work with AMD and revitalize.
Pros: I've built 8 systems with this board (I'm a system assembler) and all have worked well. Many other reviewers can go on and on...so read them.

Pros: For the price this is a great board.
Cons: I had this board for almost a week before one of the PCIe slots stopped working. I tested a few different cards that do work and still couldn't get the board to recognize any of the cards even after a few hours on the phone with ASUS which by the way were great at helping me out.. This stuff happ...
Summary: Like I said, board with give you headaches, even when you are experienced with overclocking. That being said it is not the boards fault for you getting an FF code. I have read to many reviews where people just connect everything and just press power and it not working.
Pros: This board has all the features any person would need to run a stable OC configuration. Extreme tweaker, and all the voltages you are able to configure make this board one of the best for overclocking. You can run up to DDR3-2166 with the right settings and the right RAM. Currently have my CPU (F...
Cons: This board will give you headaches. The vast amount of settings will cause anyone to freak out if they are not getting it to boot up or BSOD. It has to do with settings, most of the time the voltages. The Vdroop is bad. Off by. Up to 1 volt. Getting it to boot up with default setting will not wor...
Summary: Best looking FX9590 board hands down, solid looking heat sinks and the "red line" is a really nice touch. I won't be using the onboard audio, but it looks more substantial than standard.
Pros: Looks great, will be able to support the components I am adding including a R9 290x, Corsair 2400 cas 10 16G, and FX9590.
Cons: Only two internal USB headers! This is really unacceptable for me. I have two expansions on the front of my case that requires them as well as a few Corsair Link stuff. I will have to make some choices as to what to plug in.. I could use a second USB 3.0 as well, but it is a slightly older board.
Pros: Mobo is cosmetically beautiful. Aside from looks it performs just as well. Was not sure I would notice a difference from the ASUS board I upgraded from but I have. Even the audio is noticeably better than my last and the audio UI is ten times better and allows more flexibility. Was not overly fou...
Cons: Have been having some repeating issue with my RAID arrays that I am 95% sure is board (reason for -1 egg). I will probably end up RMAing and seeing if it cures the issues. Hoping that's all it is and not something im going to have to just live with.
Set the standard for what I want in the next motherboard

Summary: I have been an owner of ASUS products for years. I have had ROG laptops and Video Cards, and this motherboard like every product I purchased from ASUS before it was stellar in performance and met all my expectations. I am about to jump to the i7 for my next upgrade from my current FX8350.
Pros: This board is packed with features, tons of ports for all your possible needs and looks cool too. - RELIABLE!!! I have never once had the board fail to post with any of my hardware. It has fired up correctly every time, never blue screened on me. - More connections then I can use, which is great....
Cons: Side angled SATA ports. I have had issues where they will just stop seeing a device at random. Never the primary drive. Nothing moved inside the case, or touched but if I reseat the sata cable the secondary drive will come back online. All board makers are doing this now though mostly. I cant sta...
Summary: I guess 4 years is a long time for hardware these days. It worked well while it lasted, I just wish it'd faulted in a manner that didn't cost me another couple hundred bucks.
Pros: Well it was great, for 4 years, absolutely worth the buy, just keep in mind what happened to me so you don't wind up wasting your hard-earned cash when the time comes.
Cons: after 4 years the northbridge faulted, killed a cpu- and now... now i'm in the hole for another cpu that newegg won't take a return on and I can't use. Board keeps throwing CPU fault via Q-lite, but- it's the board that's bad. Everything else was tested and checked ok.
