Summary: I'm not sure why this board is ranked like, number 2, in AM3+ boards, while sorting by "Highest Rated", because I've had nothing but headaches out of this board. Don't get me wrong tho. This would be an awesome board, if it actually worked.
Pros: Plenty of USB 3.0 ports available. Support for the 220-watt, 8-core, heavy hitters. Dual x16 mode PCIe configuration, for X-fire setups.
Cons: Random reboots while gaming. Poor technical support (board sent in for repair, returned to me unfixed). I/O shield doesn't quite line up with one set of rear ports (minor gripe).
Summary: This is my second board after having to RMA the first one to Gigabyte. The NorthBridge is currently over heating again. I have not overclocked anything on the board as of yet and may not be able to at this rate.
Summary: I am in the process of shipping it back to newegg for hopefully a refund and am very disappointed in this board as i wanted to try it out for the first time. I will be going back to the ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX for future builds as i have in the past and will spend the extra $$$.
Pros: Never got the chance to try it out
Cons: Well what more can i say than that it was dead on arrival. After trying numerous working video cards, ram configurations and cpu s since i refused to believe that this board was the problem. But after using an old mobo to check the new parts i have ordered it turned out that this mobo was the issue.
Pros: This board will support multiple cards at 16 speed and looks nice.
Cons: will only support 2dimm slots when your ram is 1800 or higher. Board overheats with normal gamming, Northridge and vmr get so hot it shuts down my computer! If I had known this was going to happen 2 years ago I wouldn't have bought it. I'm very disappointed I bought this board with plans to gradu...
Summary: I've been building systems for roughly twenty years. Sometimes you get a bad component. In this case, after reviewing recent reports here, I fear a bad batch of Rev. 4 of these boards has made it into circulation.
Pros: Couldn't get one to work, can't speak to any pros.
Cons: First board arrived completely DoA. No power would pass through it, display still read "no power source" while plugged in, and it wouldn't power on. RMA'd, got second board. Second board struggled to spin up the CPU fan at power on, but after a few seconds posted, and I pulled up the BIOS and sta...
Cons: I didnt read the reviews and if I had I would not have bought this, I need new egg to take it back and let me pick another MB. Im not into freaking games so new egg better be on the ball or we will have epic problems. Im not going to be pushed around any more by big companies who sell garbage to ...
