4 out of 5 eggsAsus Sabertooth - Great Board

Pros: Very solid board. I took the mobo out of the package and I knew it was different, Nice build, strong, and sturdy. Nice amount of PCI-e slots and runs cool with proper ventilation.

Cons: The CPU 8-pin slot is strange. The board sometimes lets the cable wiggle and it doesn't provide power to the CPU.

My only compliant.

5 out of 5 eggsBest 990FX MB on Market

Pros: -UEFI Bios
-BIOS Flashback
-CeraMIX coatings
-Built in heatsinks for additional board cooling
-Great for overclocking

Cons: -None so far

Other Thoughts: I've built a couple of gaming rigs within the last year utilizing ASRock, Gigabyte, and standard ASUS MBs. This is the first time I've dealt with the Sabertooth 990fx and just out the box you can feel the difference. Much more sturdy and heavy duty than the standard boards. Installation is the same as any board and it uses the awesome UEFI bios that comes with any ASUS board. Best board I've worked with so far. Highly Recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It works. Fast Boot. SLI compatible.Nice space for for everything. A lot of slots for a good build.

One of the easiest Mother Boards I've installed yet.

Cons: Like most MB's, requires a some pressure when installing your cards.

A large PCI card can cover some of the SATA cable slots, but if you plug the SATA's in first, you can easily deal with that issue.

Other Thoughts: Works how I want it to and when I want it to for now. We'll see in a year how it stacks up.

1 out of 5 eggsBad customer service

Pros: easy set up, no problems installing os and drivers.

Cons: I have to go to forums for customer service for asus programs for the main board. many of the forums are not even asus forums.'
for the total lack of customer service I give this board 1 egg, since customer service and the warranty is only as good as the company offering it.

1 out of 5 eggsStopped working after 6 months

Pros: None

Cons: Lot's See below

Other Thoughts: I bought the 990FX R1 about 2 years ago, didn't open the box until 6 months ago, worked fine until it didn't just middle of surfing the net it just stopped and got this burning smell, I think a cap on it blew, bad craftsmenship...

3 out of 5 eggsI expected more...

Pros: LED lights on board let you know whats not working right.

Cons: Where to start. This board is HIGHLY temperamental. From what i was told by ASUS tech support from a lady that sounded like she had better things to do once the call ended, the board only likes certain memory, at certain speeds and sizes. So while the description on the page only says max memory 32gigs and what speeds, its very different in the installation manual. Goes so far as to actually give you product numbers for the stuff that works. So of course i am now having to get a refund on the memory i bought (minus newegg restocking fee), then buy approved memory from the same company again with a slightly different serial number. But my moneys on that not working either once it gets here, and having to RMA the board.

Other Thoughts: Not my first PC build, but ive never run into a motherboard so temperamental of what you put in it. Usually if you get the memory size and speed you are good to go. But not here

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsLong standing use

Pros: Works and just keeps on ticking. about 2 years now.

Cons: have not found any.

Other Thoughts: I used the original version of this board to build an 8 core 8150 AMD which had a base clock of 3100. It normally auto overclocks to 38-3900 and is completely stable. It is air cooled. Runs a bit warm 60-65 degrees. The original is only DDR-2 RAM but it runs a full load. The overall Win 7 rating is 7.5. I have upgraded the SSD twice now.from 120 to 240 and now 500. If it ever dies I will certainly buy the new version.

1 out of 5 eggsDisapointed

Pros: Meh.

Cons: The "Super awesome" ceramx coating was not complete on the heatsink, can see splotches of grey undercoat. For $180 this board should be flawless, however it was not. Expected better out of Asus.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsCan not recommend

Pros: It looks good. Has some interesting features.

Cons: Memory sensitive. Fried out almost immediately.

Other Thoughts: Right off the bat, the board didn't care for the RAM chips I had. Got some slower rated chips to solve that issue. Finally got it to post. Ran good for 10-12 minutes then it popped a capacitor. Sparks, smoke, flame... Very impressive. Right now I'm just hoping it didn't fry anything else when it blew. I am not a happy camper. Will be going to another brand to replace it.

Manufacturer Response:
