Summary: The last time i upgraded was back in the Socket 939 days and i must say componentry and manufacture on high end motherboards like this one has taken a few steps up since then. This is a nice board. i use it for server duty and it's been completely stable. Set and forget, what more can you ask for? i had to RMA one of the 2 i ordered because the onboard ethernet wasn't working right.
Super awesome, if you understand what your getting into.

Summary: This motherboard is a beast. It's handling a fx9590 that I threw at it like a beast but there are some issues. If you are going to put an FX series chip in here be aware that this specific item is a REV1 board. The bios it ships with has no instructions to support the FX series without first updating the bios. I highly recommend if your planning to use it for an FX build to have a supported AMD Cpu handy first so that you can put the proper bios version in.
