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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
Wrong MB received. Got an R2 instead of Gen3 / R2 board!

Summary: They did the exact same to me as anther customer!! Got the board on Friday 9/6/2013. Noticed right away it was the Saber Tooth 990FX R2.0 board and NOT the Saber Tooth 990FX Gen 3 /R2 Board. They just slapped a sticker on the box! Otherwise it is a R2 box and board.
Summary: I went through three of these motherboards - on the recommendation of Asus' customer service after lots of time on the phone with them - and all of them had compatibility problems with the video cards I was using (I also tried three different cards, all made by different manufacturers, and all of...
