5 out of 5 eggsEasy UEFI

Pros: A two-year-old could set up this board. USB BIOS flashback was as follows: download image file, copy file to USB, insert USB to special BIOS flashback adapter. Push the button next to adapter and you are done.

Cons: Not really a con. This board doesn't beep without an external speaker.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is in the process of replacing my AMD 8 core processor, but everything works fine with one of my old quad cores in this motherboard.

I'm not an overclocker/gamer. The reason I built this machine was to make videos and upload them to youtube. My operating system is Arch Linux, the hardware list is as follows: 10,000 rpm Western Digital hard drive, 32G Gskill Ripjaws DDR3 memory, Firepro V5900 video card, 850 watt XION power supply unit, Fractal R4 case.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This Board is amazing. Had a friend ask me to build a computer for him. Went with this board. Was very easy to setup. Has a lot of fan controls which is nice. Had everything installed and it booted right up first time. Didn't have to do anything special like only install one memory module I was able to install all 4 right off the bat. I love the new mouse friendly bios.

Cons: None so far. It has only been a day since I built the computer.

5 out of 5 eggsA+

Pros: I've never used anything like this, I mean it's really built to last. The led system for components is genius, on-board buttons to reset the ram, access the bios, which is pretty cool too, runs cool, stable.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: I wish the pcie to ieee card didn't burn the slot after 2 days, therefore I can't be happy about that 5-year warranty anymore.

2 out of 5 eggsAlready starting to fail

Pros: I've had no issues for a year in a half.

Cons: The onboard sound has gone out I contacted Asus and they keep giving me the run around saying my serial number does not match there database. Now I have to buy a sound card which is going to cost me more money.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to hear that your serial number is supposedly invalid. Can you please take a picture of your board and email me at cl-justin@asus.com and I will help you to the best of my abilities. Your case # for reference is N150864813

Thanks for choosing ASUS

2 out of 5 eggsFailed

Pros: This board comes with everything you would want and received plenty of great reviews. ASUS tech team always responded with 24 hours. Newegg return service is very good.

Cons: 2 boards tried and both failed with 2 different sets of memory, both on the QVL list, while Gigabyte's board had no issues booting up

Other Thoughts: Happy this board was a champ for others, just delayed my computer being created having to return twice.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: This motherboard is simply amazing,i upgraded from a GA-970A-UDP the difference was huge i really needed to crank up the voltage on the GA-970 just to OC my 8350 to 4.8ghz something like 1.49V.The Sabertooth i was able to get a stable OC at 1.45V,i also love the bios overall so many options for the money.

Cons: Ummm the color scheme.....that's about it .

5 out of 5 eggs"TUF" as a nail.

Pros: No complaints about the motherboard: a few mistakes when handling/installing it should've broken it no less than four times, yet it still works flawlessly (thermal paste on open conduits, improperly installed thrice, incorrect grounding location, etc.). UEFI BIOS handles nicely, is easy to use, and beautiful. Spatial positioning for ports is modular and easy to work-around if your other computer parts are slightly obtrusive (large video cards, etc.).

Cons: None to speak of so far. Will update in future.

Other Thoughts: None to speak of so far. Will update in future.
