Reviews

from completed build My Rendering Machine

Very good motherboard. ASUS and other manufactures need to start making more AM3 boards like this one! It's got an easy to use Overlock tuner and a Awesome Easy mode with automatic over-clocking. Plus a little downside is a bit of ROG connect could use some work but it still works and is awesome. Good Motherboard ASUS

from completed build P-22 Panthera

It is an older MoBo. But, I was worried about the power needs of my FX-9590, and this MB has both an 8-pin and a 4-pin power connector. Booted up perfectly the first time and every time. It has 8 fast Sata6G connectors for HDDs, SSDs, and optical drives. I can connect up to 8 fans, more than enough for my 6 fan case. It does have two pretty fast PCIe 2.0 x16 connectors to crossfire video cards with, one PCIe 2.0 x16 running at 8, one PCIe 2.0 x16 running at 4, and two PCIe 2.0 x1 connectors for blazing fast PCIe SSDs. But, I do wish it supported PCIe 3.0, and had more than one USB 3.0 connector (although it does have four USB 3.0 ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, and 2 eSata ports).

The board itself is amazing, Easy overclocking, good clearance for bigger cards and support for an additional +4 CPU power and additional 12v molex for triple SLI.

WORST customer support, upon my first board dying I was told I had to pay full price for a replacement board until I sent back the old board, $239.99 is too much to randomly pay if my board dies to no fault of mine. If you are any sort of tight budget don't buy this board because if it dies you will be SOL, if you have a microcenter near you I firmly recommend you buy it there and get the 2 year protection it'll will save your life.
