5 out of 5 eggsASUS Sabertooth 990FX

Pros: Excellent feature set, easily set up everything in UEFI BIOS.

I'm still putting things together, have hit only one snag, which was easily correctable.

Another reviewer said he had no problem using G.Skill Trident 2400 RAM. So we decided to use the F3-2400C10D-16GTX version, as the price was only $5 more than 1866 speed RAM.

Initially it recognized only the one stick of RAM which was automatically set at 1.65V.

It recognized the second stick of RAM when the voltage on it was raised to 1.65V. I don't recall what it was initially, but it was lower.

Everything else worked perfectly with the automatic settings.

Nothing overclocked, and won't be either.

Cons: None.

I'm happy as a pig in mud.

Other Thoughts: System components:

Corsair Obsidian 900D Case
Corsair AX1200i PS
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX MB
AMD FX8350 CPU
G.Skill Trident F3-2400C10D-16GTX RAM
ASUS Radeon R9 280 DirectCU GPU
Corsair H105 Cooler
W-7 Pro

5 out of 5 eggsBest mobo!

Pros: UEFI, sata III, usb 3.0, bios flash back, looks sweet

Cons: None whatsoever!

Other Thoughts: I used to have the original version of this mono and I loved it. The best thing about r 2.0 is the bios flashback.

5 out of 5 eggsPremium motherboard

Pros: This thing keeps my newer AMD processor nice and cool. (along with proper heatsink and fan installation)

It was a breeze to install, it even had labels on the board for where the front case audio and USB pins went.

It also came with really nice packaging.

Cons: You really have to cram the RAM down really hard for it to fit in the slots. I was afraid I'd break it.

Other Thoughts: I did have one small issue where the board would beep long once and short twice, I couldn't locate what this meant in the manual so with a quick online search I found it was an issue with the RAM, I hadn't pushed it down far enough.

3 out of 5 eggsDurable board, but could have a better layout

Pros: Looks like a really well-built motherboard, and the design is easy on the eyes as well, if you're in to looks. This was my first time building a computer of my own so I don't know much about the technical side of things. The BIOS looks great--I've never seen anything so user-friendly before.

Cons: Unfortunately after installing my CPU fan, only three out of the four RAM slots are accessible, with the third slot bordering the fan. The wide fan is partially to blame for this, but I've installed the same fan in a Gigabyte motherboard with plenty of room to spare. Additionally, I had trouble with the PCI-E slots. After installing a GTX 770 video card into the first slot, its monstrous size ends up covering the LAN card slot below it. Not sure why the LAN slot can't be positioned above the other PCI-E slots, as it is in the Gigabyte mobo. Not a big deal to move everything around, but after being told from multiple sources that it's ideal to have your graphics card in the first PCI-E slot for best performance, I was kind of bummed with the motherboard layout.

5 out of 5 eggsFast...Tough...Amazing

Pros: This board is amazing, I was skeptical at first, but many of the reviews put those doubts to rest. I received the board very quickly, kudos to Newegg on that one, and then proceeded to assemble my build. Worried about damaging it or having a DoA was always on my mind, I made sure that if there was anything wrong with it, it was not my fault. Needless to say, the thing looks like it can take a beating. ASUS boxes this thing like it's ready to go to war. Amazing board, worked right out the box, great BIOS, POST is freaking fast... Yeah, amazing board.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Experience

Pros: It looks nice, and I know people who have had good experiences with them.

Cons: Unfortunately, I recieved one board that was DOA, standy LED wouldn't even light up.

Sent that one back for another, which cost me 13$.
New one arrived about 2 weeks later, set it up, no issues for about 2 days.

After 2 days, it stopped recognizing my PCI-E3.0 x16 HD7970 as x16, instead running it at x1. This continued the entire time I had it, until one day it wouldn't boot anymore. Replaced with an intel mobo/processor combo.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board, and no problems what so ever.

Pros: I had another 990FX motherboard that at the time of buying stated it supported the fx8350, and after some time they decided it wasn't compatible, and I finally had figured out that it was the VRAM not being able to give enough current under load.

So I spoke with some friends and they all recommended this board and I love it. It was an easy install, really sturdy, plenty of case fan headers and a USB 3.0 header!

Cons: The only con I have is the green LED that shines on the bottom of the motherboard. my GPU (R9 270X), is in the last PCI16X slot for aesthetic purposes as it is in an H440. Anyways my entire build is white, white case, white fans, white led fans. Everything except that bright green LED is white, I might just cover it with some tape, but that's my only con.

Other Thoughts: This board is great for OCing. right now I have an FX8350 with an H55 with 2 SP120s in push-pull and I'm at 4.5 Ghz with 27C normal temps and 49C during Prime95

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: This motherboard is all around great.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If anyone is like me and may have had doubts about buying this one because of something as stupid as not thinking it didn't have the 20 pin USB 3.0 connector, I recommend watching NewEggTVs video on it. Their videos have taught me so much and if it wasn't for their videos I would have bought some low end motherboard that probably wouldn't handle my graphics card.
