4 out of 5 eggsHEAVY!!! good.... solid

Pros: nice solid room on the board for just about all the fans that you really need. that said... the heat sinks for the NB and SB are actually working awesome. on my old board the NB would get hot like 80+c. not really sure how hot the SB got on it cause the mobo didn't have a temp sensor for it. but the thing i like most about this Sabertooth is the bios features. all the control that you need voltage, fan speed (going back to the amount of fans), loading of different type of bios (saving different settings). so over all not a huge financial burden too only 180 dollars. and so far only one issue..... ya there was an issue!

Cons: install went great easy, went into my new case like clockwork. (Thermaltake Overseer RX-1) the issue i had since all i just swapped over hard drives from my old case to new with few upgrades to video and ram along with a processor . but when the first boot came up it went all the way to the loading windows (windows 7 pro) screen... ya know with the floating dots! it crashes and restarts itself and comes back up with the fix windows promp and start windows normal screen. so tryed fixing the boot. didnt work. tryed different hard drives and nothing worked. put the hard drives into my wifes comp and loads fine. so i wiped windows and reinstalled the OS and now it works just fine. have no idea what was causeing the issue with windows but i knew everything worked cause things would boot up when installed in other systems. so after 2 days of fiddling and a reinstall ( which i wasnt happy about.) its working fine just now for some reason my fans are not able to speed up. there stuck at 500 rpm and dont know whats going on.

Other Thoughts: build..

5 out of 5 eggsSabertooth 990FX R.2

Pros: First of all I am not a gamer! But I do depend on a PC a great deal and when I do a build for my own use I research it to death. I run two PC's with this board and AMD 8350's and have had nothing but great success with them.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My only beef is with the MFG. itself. I build on the average of 10 PCs a year and almost always use ASUS boards. I have come to realize if you have a defective board in the warranty period you may as well just replace it and take the hit. The company leaves a lot to be desired. As for their rebates, I could paper a wall with unfulfilled rebates especially for monitors. There always seems to be an excuse and of course it is my fault.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS FX900 R 2.0

Pros: Great board, no problems, put in my old Atec mid atx case so it runs fairly hot.. definitely not a fault of the board. AMD 8320, 16gb ram. I would recommend a modern case with large 120mm fans....I have GREAT visions of expansion in the near future. Be careful and read manual thoroughly as there are many overclock options depending on the methods you chose to use. I have read a few reviews about "DOAs" with this board, but mine has been "ROCK SOLID"

Cons: Not free :-)

1 out of 5 eggsMore pretty trash via Asus

Pros: I mean, its pretty to look at.

Cons: As a longtime consumer of Asus products, I can honestly say Ill never buy another. The first sabertooth I had died after 32 days on a very mild overclock. The second I received after almost a month, was a refurb with dust on it and everything. This guy was DOA, of course, so I thought I would try a different board still in the 990fx series. I got the M5A99fx. Also DOA. Im on month 3 of not being able to use my computer. Never again will I buy a piece of hardware with an Asus badge.

Other Thoughts: Asus is like: "what quality control?"

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsReally nice MB

Pros: Very sturdy board. Installing aftermarket HSF and memory demonstrated this fact. There was no worry of flexing the board too much. UEFI is fantastic. Much better than the old BIOS. I needed a new rig to play Star Citizen, and this MB coupled with an FX 6350 and a GTX 970 gave me more than was required. I've been assembling PC's for almost 20 years, and this is the finest MB I have ever handled.

Cons: I wish that the DIMM slots were further from the CPU, to allow for aftermarket HSF's. My Zalman HSF hangs over two of my memory sticks. Glad I already had low profile memory, or it wouldn't have fit.

Other Thoughts: Looking at the ratings and reviews on lots of MB's, I am wondering whether there are really that many defective MB's, or if the users might be the issue. I did not see a single 5-star MB.

1 out of 5 eggsNot for Performance Enthusiasts

Pros: supports the fx 9590, 32Gb of Ram, and tri SLI

Cons: Trying to setup raid 0 on ssd is a nightmare it is nothing like using an Nvidia based system.

Other Thoughts: If performance on every level is what you are after this is not the board for you. Also ASUS is known for discontinuing support as my crosshair 2 board will not SLI with anything over a 500 series set of cards as I found out after ordering three gtx 680s then three gtx 780s.
