Summary: I bought this for my gaming rig and it hasn't failed me I've got 32gb of ram a 3gb graphics card and an 8core processor running on this guy and it works great all the plugs work and it's sturdy. Seems to stay relatively cool too. Plus the buttons for overclocking will come in useful to any extreme computer enthusiasts.
Summary: I liked the Features and the 8 on board SATA Connectors. I successfully set up a RAID 10 with the Main 4 ports (0-3) and a Spare Drive on the (4-5) and connected my DVD RW Drive on the Jmicro ports (6-7). I did upgrade the BIOS to the Beta F11a from Gigabyte's Website. Currently Running 16 GB DD3 1600 MHz and AMD AM3+ FX8120 Eight Core CPU with a CWC-H100 Liquid Cooling with a two Fan Radiator ( 20mm X 240 mm) running at 4.0 GHz (Overclocked from standard 3.1 GHz).
Gigabyte's Best AM3+ 990FX/SB950 Motherboard So Far

I Downloaded the updated F11a Beta BIOS from Gigabytes website and flashed the BIOS with the @BIOS GUI Windows Utility.

I need more pcie slots to hook up at least 6 video cards, unfortunately even slim low profile cards wont fit side by side because it is too closed. I only can utilize 4 instead of 6 slots. What a waste of money.

A hint to asus, if your RMA department is overworked and way too busy, you have bigger issues to deal with than processing RMAs like maybe defective products and manufacturing issues . I plugged this in and it took right off.
