Summary: The Good: I bought this motherboard when it first came out boasting 3 PCI Express 2.0 and 6 USB 3.0 and i must say i could not be happier with this motherboard as the center of my build paired with the AMD FX8350 8 core 4.0Ghz processor along with the boards raid support and crossfire support it runs super fast, super quiet and most important super cool.
Summary: this motherboard is just a beast it is well put together, it has plenty of usb 3.0 and usb 2.0 8 sata ports. when i paired it with amd fx 8350 it blows though everything and to top it off it runs skyrim at a steady 125 fps, battlefeild 3 at 140 fps, daiblo 3 at 150 fps. thats not counting the 5 year warrenty that you get with it so if you are looking for a rock solid motherboard that does not overheat and has alot of room for expandabilty, and lenendary like performance...
Summary: I had alot of issues with it at first. Although I honestly love it, it provides me with all the features I wanted and needed in a gaming motherboard. Although it had A LOT of overclocking features and such that had to be disabled to stop it from over heating. The board is sturdy and handles everything that I have thrown at it. I honestly would purchase one or two more.
Summary: I got this board for a "budget build" from another retailer after my old system went poof. Usually when I build a budget system, most of the budget will be on the board, everything else will be lower spec (slower cpu, less ram, lower end video card) so it can be upgraded later. I only get boards if they bios chips are socketed, or equipped with redundant bios. I'm spoiled by using high-availability server grade hardware.
Summary: WOW! My first ground up build and everything went very well. I didn't even find the picture instructions until I was looking for where to plug the power button in. Nice little plug that gathers all the front panel wires together before connecting to the mobo. Heat sink backing panel did not fit the CoolerMaster Hyper 212... easy enough to remove the stock backing plate and install the one that comes with the monster oversized CPU cooler.
Summary: A computer technician I have been an ASUS advocate and user for several years and have never experienced a failure on one of their boards. No 90 and semi-retired, and a non-gamer, I purchased the ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard and an AMD quad core, a 1-T and a 2T HDS, and 12 gigs of memory for what may be the final update for this computer. I installed Windows 8.1, pushed the magic button --- it works, beautifully!
Summary: Been using for the better part of a month now and so far so good! Handles heavy load like a champ and seems to be very overclocking friendly... Im running my FX-8350 black at 5.4 ghz with the help of a liquid cpu cooler and where my old mobo would BSOD after about 10 mins this one seems to dissipate the heat well enough. 5 year warranty is a huge plus too.
Summary: As far as AMD Motherboards go this one is a keeper. I have used this motherboard in 12 builds and never an issue with the board. I bought this board for professional builds because i have torture tested it in my personal machine and never had any issues. I wish this had the shield offered in the intel versions of the board for my watercooled loops but overall this is a great board.
