Summary: I just need to get a Phenom II X6 1090T or greater now.
Pros: I've had this motherboard as my main PC for about 5 years now, running a Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition. Only problem I had was when first setting it up and found out it needs a good 500+ Watt power supply and ever since then, it's been solid as a rock. Currently dual booting Windows 10 and Slack...

Cons: My first board died about after three months, I RMA'd it and revieced a new one promptly, that was in 2010, and now it is 2013 and the new one they sent me has been running strong so no egg drops
