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.

1 out of 5 eggsWAS a good motherboard

Pros: Lots of USB ports both 2.0 and 3.0
lots of sata ports
looks nice and has room for multiple graphics card and other cards

Cons: died after a year and 3 months for no reason
you get to deal with ASUS customer support if anything does go wrong

was told they would send a technician to my home for a fee of $170 to tell me "yup its the motherboard, time to get a new one." Thanks ASUS for the worst customer support anyone could ask for

Other Thoughts: I will not buy any more ASUS products and urge anyone else to follow suit. they do not claim responsibility for faulty hardware and just tell customers to spend more and more money.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry that you experienced issues with your motherboard. However, ASUS North America does not offer in home support. I am unsure of who you spoke to in regards to this. At your earliest convenience, please contact me through email, including your reference number within the subject line, and we can discuss this case further. In addition, please provide me with what troubleshooting steps you have tried, as well as the rest of the systems hardware configuration. Thank you. Cs#N141067816

1 out of 5 eggsIf It Worked Maybe...

Pros: I loved the fact it had so many SATA connections and USB 3.0. The flash bios option was convenient as well and the military grade boasting caught my attention and had very good success with ASUS in the past....

Cons: ...but the board never posted for me. I RMAed it 3 times and gave up after 3 just because I needed my computer back and crossing my fingers was getting annoying and I didn't want to spend a lot of money figuring out what it might be that was causing it to not work. I replaced the CPU and still no success. With it working it might be pretty cool and I really wanted it to work.

There is a chance it was some of my hardware CPU 1: AMD Phenom II 1090T processor, CPU 2: AMD FX-8320 processor.

Other Thoughts: My computer is still not back online as I'm choosing a different motherboard to go with but still was hoping that board would have been the one.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I do apologize that you experienced issues with your motherboard. Is it still currently in the RMA process? 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#N141034699

5 out of 5 eggsSexy MoBo

Pros: Great layout, Easy overclocking, Coloring is very universal for any color case matching, Supports up to the FX-8350 CPU which at the time i bought it was one of the very best CPU's you could get from AMD. This board as a lot of cool hardware features like a Memory test button, Direct to Bios button all on the board which if you are into overclocking and have those days when you end up sitting by your computer scratching your head at what went wrong really comes in handy.

Cons: Not any i can think of. I had this board for over a year, brought my computer over to many places never an issue. My old house before i moved had no carpet with two cats so it got dusty quick and i rarely cleaned it and still never had an issue.

Other Thoughts: This board will tell you if your CPU is bad if your RAM is bad or if your Harddrive is bad all by LED light indicators on the board which is nice imo. I have this board running 24 gigs of ram all 4 slots at 1866mhz no probelm, OC FX-8350 @ 4.5ghz no problem and even thou PCI-E 3.0 isn't really utilized these days with todays video cards its still nice to have the option has most boards do not have PCI-E3.0.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Stays very Cool, Worked right out of the Box....My Temps stay at 27C even under load.

Cons: When buying this Board keep in mind that the board will default to 1333mhz operating speed for memory. You have to manually set the timings and MHz in the UFEI. I could not get my memory to run at 1866mhz which the board is rated for. Best I could do was 1800mhz without windows re-booting.

Other Thoughts: This Board is very fast and you can't beat the price. I have always been a ASUS customer and once again ASUS comes through......
