Pros: Very nice.Bios runs flawlessly and the WiFi Go Remote's pretty crazy. I can use my PC w/ my phone.The rest does what it says.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid AMD Board

Pros: -UEFI Bios, I love uefi.
-the MEM OK! button and/or Directkey buttons were useful for trying to troubleshoot my RAM speed problem (below)
-Came with a lovely little Q key so I didn't have to do all those annoying little case cords.
-lots and lots of SATA ports

Cons: -Didn't have enough fan ports, I had to break down and use some molex connectors
-RAM timing had to be input manually... Don't know which part's fault that is, but I had to do that in order for the RAM to run@ anything above 1333.
-LED fans aren't working. Not sure if this is the fan's fault, or the motherboard LED connector's fault.

Other Thoughts: In my opinion probably the best price for power AMD board.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: Nice to look at, LED indicators helpful in identifying any h/w issues, Good-looking and very functional BIOS.f

Cons: None so far! (fingers crossed)

Other Thoughts: This board is the base for my first build (from the ground up), and installation went fine. Detailed, and easy to follow installation/instruction guide. I've had no issues yet, and I really like that this board has a switch on it to auto-overclock.
I paired this board with:
-AMD FX-8350 (H100i cooling)
-8 gigs Corsair Dominator
-EVGA S.C. GTX 760 4GB
-Corsair CS700 PSU

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Had a couple of glitches getting this computer rebuilt (bad power switch on case, and a bad hard drive) But none of them related to this board. It booted into Bios right away and has enough ports to keep anyone happy. So far a very solid board.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: some have said sata port placement was an issue, but wasn't for me with a massive case. Asus ai suite is pretty nice too.

5 out of 5 eggsExcited to have a decent MOBO

Pros: After RMAing another MOBO *cough**ASRock**cough* I am very happy to have such a great Motherboard as this one.

Readily supports overclock on my FX-8320

Was happy when it accepted 16GB of "unsupported" RAM from two different manufacturers!

Cons: Sometimes the LED lights for POST faults indicate the wrong issue.

Other Thoughts: I hope AMD does not drop support for AM3+ because it looks like everything is shifting to FM2+...

Pros: Great features. I have had no problem in past with asus boards.

Cons: With this new build m5a99x, FX 8350, 1000watt antec ps, evga gtx 760. 16 gig 1600Hyprx ram.
