5 out of 5 eggsFollow up to previous review

Pros: Again the board is visually nice. The direction of the SATA ports is nice, helps keep cables out of the way.

Cons: I did get the board up and running. Found out it may be a PSU problem with the graphics card I was putting in so please disregard the previous review. I am having absolutely no problems with the motherboard any longer. At least I think so.

Other Thoughts: My power supply unit is 700w, but I found out that is the peak output, sneaky buggars, it actually runs at 550w continuous. Although I've done a few power calculators and that should be enough, I believe that is the culprit in my situation. I would delete my previous review if I new how.

5 out of 5 eggsNice board

Pros: I replaced an Asus MB that went bad with this one. Overall the design of this one is much better. It's looks better as well. It has plenty of hook ups for multiple HDD, fans, USB, etc. Front USB 3.0.

Cons: None so far

3 out of 5 eggsREV 3 has caused me a lot of trouble

Pros: It was a good board with my phenom ii 965 and a hd7870...

Cons: I bought it to eventually to move into FX series... well I bought a fx8350 and a hd7970 to go with it a couple weeks ago and its been a nightmare for me. Now I am finding all this bad stuff about the REV 3 board. I have massive cpu clock/ voltage throttle under any kind of load. I have re applied paste, evo 212 cool. Turns out to be VRM heatsink is bad and needs a fan placed on it.... no thanks, no ghetto rig please lol. setting up RMA today and asking for rev 4.

Other Thoughts: it was good with old phenom setup so if that's what you have then should be ok. Try to buy none rev 3 haha

4 out of 5 eggs50/50 but great

Pros: incredible and easy to use bios menu and great indication were componants need to be inserted and looks and handles great under load witha Fx 8350 overclocked to 4.8ghz and nice/great cooler of chipset

Cons: wile overclocking pc restarts immediately after power on my guess is to set the new clock speeds something that i do not like but seems normal hope there is a future bios update soon but other than that product is great for a low budget setup

Other Thoughts: nothing else could keep me from recommending this product

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice looking board visually.

Cons: From the beginning I had a hard time with this MB. Going from Intel to AMD was not fun. I had to reinstall windows so I could install a driver just for AMD. The computer sometimes would stay on for just a moment (just to the Windows loading screen and the power would cut. Sometimes it would allow me to get into the computer to try to diagnose what was going on, but really couldn't because the power kept cutting out (seemingly) randomly. Sometimes I'd be able to be in for 20-30 minutes at a time the it just shuts down. Don't know what to do as I bought this 28 days ago, had to wait to afford other parts.

4 out of 5 eggsMatt D.

Pros: It looks good on paper.

Cons: A significant draw back and i thought it was the motherboard till i happened across a piece of information on Tom's hardware, along with finding out that the newest game card i own runs fine on it, which happens to be PCIe 2.0. the card i ordered, 3.0

this chipset, proof can be found here:
http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/chipsets/9-series#

is not compatible with PCIe 3.0. this board contains this chipset and therefore only compatible with 2.0. I've got other cards to use, but this was a big let down. now i need to find another card that's 2.0 and has the same processing power.

Other Thoughts: AMD, get your chipset up to par with PCIe 3.0 x16.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple and Solid

Pros: Nice look
Tons of usb 2.0 ports
Preinstalled amd stock cooler mounts

Cons: The BIOS is not great
Only 2 usb 3.0 port
The second pci-e x1 alot is covered if you put a graphics card in the top pci-e 2.0 slot

Other Thoughts: This is my first build I have ever done and my experience so far has been great. In the 2 months of usage, except for a few gripes I have had no problems with this board. My first annoyance is the BIOS which has bad mouse support and the fact that it took me a couple weeks to realize that you have to use the plus and minus buttons to control clock speeds(though it might be that i'm just dumb). Second is specific to my computer case which is the NZXT H440, where some of the sata ports get in the way of my hard drive bay; it's a simple to remove the drive bay itself but i just find it annoying.

Also a side note: this thing has 8 usb 2.0 but only 2 usb 3.0 which is problem for some people but i personally don't have a problem with it.

System specs:
Fx-6300
NZXT H440
Stock Cpu cooler
8Gb G.skill 1600 RAM
XFX R9 280
TP-link wireless adapter
Rosewill Firewire adapter
1TB WD blue
Corsair cx600m psu

3 out of 5 eggs50/50 chance of working

Pros: good specs on paper.

Cons: Put it into a new build. Didn't fire up.
swapped out RAM, nothing.
Swapped out Video card for a 10 year old quadro (3450), fired right up.

put new video card into 10 year old computer. worked fine.

Other Thoughts: Is this thing compatible with PNY Geforce GTX 750 ti OC cards? both brand new, and work separately, but together, nothing. what gives?

contacting both manufacturers to see what they say.
