So far, so good

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: This build will be for my wife, and praying it lasts. Starting out with an AMD Phenom II X3 710 CPU, then will upgrade up to a FX 4350 or 6300. I currently have a ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 with a FX-6300 and 4GB GSkill Ripjaws 1333 MHz RAM and it has been solid for almost a year.
  • Pros: First of all, this is the third board I've bought. First one was a ASUS M5A97 R2.0 and the second was the MSI 990FXA Gaming Motherboard. Both Motherboards were awesome for 2 days. The ASUS board had audio problems come up, and the MSI board started randomly powering down without warning. Received...
  • Cons: The box was damp from being out in the cold. The instruction manual, driver disk, and the outer edge of the retail box was slightly wet resulting in a couple ripples on the box. The Motherboard however wasn't damp or wet, however, I did allow everything to dry before installing. Not anybody's fau...

Asus is always the best!

Jason L., Newegg

  • Summary: Highly recommend this board for everyone. All the FX CPU's work very well with this board with the exception of the 9570 and 9590. I don't think the 220w chips are supported on this board.
  • Pros: I have 4 other builds and 3 out of 4 have Asus boards. I have not had any issues with the boards at all. Been running my M5A99FX Pro for a year now with an overclock on the RAM and CPU issue free. Good color scheme, plenty of fan headers (although we always wish for more) Overclocks like a champ ...
  • Cons: More like a rant, I wish motherboard companies would get on the ball and start making AM3+ boards that have PCIE 3.0 along with DDR4 support. I know the tech is getting a bit old and AMD is coming out with a new processor soon, but by not supporting these features for AMD it kind of monopolizes t...

  • Pros: -fast boot -love the led
  • Cons: -led does not turn of when computer is shutdown, not really a con but can't help but think it can't be good for energy saving or led life.

Sata port seems broken out of box

Bogdan V., Newegg
10 December 2015
  • Pros: Great board, everything is efficiently placed.
  • Cons: Contacted Asus and did not receive a single response after 48 hours. From my troubleshooting, I have narrowed it down to one of the sata ports. 10/10 would not recommend.

Avoid Asus

Ryan P., Newegg
9 December 2015
  • Summary: Had this board for about a year would randomly not post. Sent this board back to asus and would not warranty it due to missing serial number on the board which I used to do my RMA and somehow went missing during the shipping and asus receiving it.Save your money and buy a different board.
  • Pros: Bios is great. layout of the board is great.
  • Cons: Dealing will asus, Motherboard will not last long.

Mostly good

Langdon G., Newegg
17 November 2015
  • Pros: Mostly no problems. I like the board's layout.
  • Cons: USB 3.0 issues. Worked fine for a few months. Then started crashing, until I disconnected from the on-board USB 3.0 connection. Some of the rear USB 3.0 ports don't like to recognize peripherals either. Maybe I got a bad unit.
