DOES NOT WORK WITH LINUX.

HVG, Amazon
11 January 2015
  • Summary: In my last post I gave a hardware list for my current system running a Xen hypervisor with Linux Mint 13 Mate as dom0 and Windows 7 Pro as domU with VGA passthrough. It was quite a challenge to get everything working, but now it works fine.

Don't buy this one based on the Description ....

RJ_PC_GAMER "RJ", Amazon
29 December 2014
  • Summary: I pulled all the components from another working system to use for testing the install and setup of this board. For the month that I kept the board there was random restarts and shutdowns. I spent a lot of time on the internet looking for possible solutions. I had no luck.

buy another brand

Charles A. Upton, Amazon

  • Summary: I will never buy another product from Asus. This is my 4th 990fx from Asus. I just installed the latest one from them with no video out. Now I will wait another 10 to 14 days to get another. I have been building computers since 1992. I know what I am doing.

Wrong board

Z.Crider, Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: Wrong board after having my order cancelled once already. If they think I'm taking another $10 promotional credit that I can only use on items they sell new they are crazy. Soon as my prime subscription is up I'm done with Amazon!

Burned with the wrong board

Cottontop, Amazon
12 September 2013
  • Summary: The description clearly says Asus Sabertooth 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 board and the picture shows a GEN3 board, but I payed $50 more for a GEN3 sticker and a regular Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 board. I'm not happy at all; I should've saved the $50 and bought the regular board from Newegg.
