5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: This motherboard is absolutely amazing looking. I ordered it with 3 day shipping and it actually got here the next day. I am still waiting on my processor(AMD FX-8350), but I will update performance afterwards.

Cons: There was a slight puncture mark on the bottom of the box. Its almost like it hit the corner of something in the warehouse, but no actual blemishes on the MOBO itself.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am extremely satisfied so far. I like the durability of the Sabertooth lin, but I didn't like the tan color in the online pictures. I was delightfully surprised when I got it to learn that its not actually tan colored, I think it was just the angle of the pictures or something.

1 out of 5 eggsOpen Box Refurb Unit shipped

Pros: Board is a great board but I never got to use it.

Cons: The reason I gave this a 1 rating in my last review was because what I called the mounting screws (not to be confused with ones that ship with the case to allow said motherboard screws to screw into your case), the motherboard screws (which I still believe is called mounting screws), did not ship with the board. I explained this to Lou from ASUS who attempted to explain they don't ship motherboard with screws, which then I replied, how do you get the board to screw in without them? So you see, it was missing the screws. I hope this clears up any misunderstanding.

Other Thoughts: If mounting screws was the in-correct term, I apologize for the confusion; it still doesn't change the fact my mobo shipped with no screws what-so-ever. I'd rather get a refunded RMA than wait for ASUS to ship me screws even if it meant I kept my warranty, as there should be no tampering with new products and selling them as New.

1 out of 5 eggsOpen Box Refurb Unit shipped

Pros: Everything looked alright with the board, but they sent me an open box, as parts were missing inside.

Cons: Missing mounting screws, so I couldn't use the motherboard as someone had to open the box to take them out which makes it open boxed item when I paid for new hopefully untampered box.

Other Thoughts: Still awaiting RMA to finish, will likely order the board again when $ returned.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings Mystt,

Unfortunately mounting screws are not included in the purchase of a motherboard sir. Upon purchase of your case/tower/chassis you should see that it comes with mounting screws and standoffs. If you would like to discuss this case further, please contact me through email and include your reference number within the subject line. In addition, please provide me with what troubleshooting steps you had tried, as well as the rest of the systems hardware configuration. Thank you. Cs#N141144381

Regards,

Lou

5 out of 5 eggsSolid board

Pros: Very easy to setup,just have to get used to typing in values while in bios. Just had to increase G.Skill ram from 1.5 to 1.55 volts to get to run ram at ddr1866 with a fx8350 processer.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Board

Pros: When I first saw this board I knew this was the board I wanted to build my desktop with. It just looks and feels great right out of the box, Quality is everywhere on this board. I'm using an FX 8350 and getting pretty descent clock speeds. The Bios was easy to use and update. Everything booted up nicely and worked perfectly. Asus provides a good about of hardware with this board as well

Cons: My box came a bit damaged when i recieved it one of the corners was tore into, but overall the products inside were in good shape and untouched, Not really Asus's fault on that one

4 out of 5 eggshot core when overcloked

Pros: Super easy to overclock to 4.5 before you have to screw with voltages on a fx8350. Angled data ports. Fan headers do a great job at keeping the rig quiet at idle.

Cons: Core gets hot. This is the area to the left of the possessor. I purchased this board to overclock but the extra power makes the current thus creating a hot v core.

Other Thoughts: Other then the vcore temps this board is awesome. This is a board that was reccomended many times to me way after I already had it picked it for my build. Fx8350 16g Ddr3 h105 r9-290 evo ssd runs like butter with this board.

5 out of 5 eggsUtter Pants

Pros: I just cannot break this thing, been running twin Asus 560's in the board since I built it, OC'ed them until you could make toast on the heat sinks and it still would not break, Running 13 accounts on EVE at full Graphics and it still chugs on without complaint and has been for almost 18 months now,
Threw twin 780's in it yesterday and whoa! it broke down, sucked so much power out of the PSU it blew out, Fresh PSU and hit the switch, damb it I still have this Sabetooth, 990fx and the replacement is still in it's Box, Stupid me bought yet another 990FX. I need to get a life.

Cons: CPU heat sink became loose over time due to distortion in the levers, prob down to heat, re-seat sorted it.

Other Thoughts: Basically a well marketed, very well designed board, one minor niggle with it, the case connections while easy to get at tend to be easy to disturb even using an adapter, this said I cannot fault it overall and using it as much as I do, (24/7) and considering the sheer abuse I give it I expected it to die long ago, bought a second one as a standby for this reason but like always ASUS have not let me down and even if it fails today I will not be disappointed in it, pure value for money spent.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0

Pros: Works very well, and haven't had any unpleasant surprises.

Quite an upgrade from our ASUS A8N-SLI, Athlon-64 based system, purchased from Newegg about 9+ years ago.

The overall system speed and flexibility are the biggest factors noted thus far.

The fuel-injected BIOS is next. It is easy to use, and seems complete so far as being able to do what you want to with the system.

Cons: Not enough to deduct an egg:

Would like to have a couple more 10-pin USB 2.0 ports onboard (page 1-6, item 14, User Guide motherboard layout).

Our Newegg Corsair 900D case needs 2, and a card-reader needs 1. There's only 2, so we're already short and looking for a workaround.

Incidentally, everybody's higher-end MBs are the same way. C'mon ASUS, get busy on improving this, we can't be the only ones needing more.

Other Thoughts: Oh, why didn't I have the money to spare to buy this system earlier.
