Pros: Extremely Friendly Overclocking Potential, True ROG Board, On board MemOK, On/Off, and Reset, Loads of features

Cons: Struggles with BIOS Startup, SSD's seem to slow the board down (during boot), Has a hard time powering USB's when Windows 7 is at the user login

All in all great board. Purchased this as an upgrade from a M5A99X Evo. Love this board and every feature it has, down to the On/Off Internal.

Only main problems with this board is the BIOS takes FOREVER to gain access to. Another big factor I've noticed since I moved my SSD over is the BIOS takes almost 1.5-2x longer to load.

And this one comes out of my personal experience - It has troubles with bringing USB's to life when you need to use them.

But if you're a serious gamer, and you want the performance and power of a AMD ROG Board, go for this one. Currently have 2 7870's in Crossfire (All overclocked), and a AMD-FX 8350 OC'd to a stable 4.8GHz. Love this board and everything it has.

Pros: Exellent Motherboard, and it looks damn good :)

Cons: Most of AM3 socket CPU-coolers do not fit on this AM3+ socket.

I have problems with CPU-Z (ROG version) and HW-Monitor proggies, both giving readings that can't be true. Might be a bug that will be fixed up soon, at least I do hope so, otherwise I think I have faulty MoBo or FX4170 sensors.
Examples: Core temps are +2 degrees of Celsius (room temp = 21 degrees of Celsius) and i'm using air cooler / Macho HR-02, Core speeds running up and down from 1000MHz to 4400MHz even it has set and fixed to 4400MHz by BIOS and all Auto-functions have been disabled from BIOS and Power management options from Windows have set to disable / Best Performance (100%)

If someone is having same kinda problems please post smile.gif

Pros: Power Phase, Overclocking, ROG Connect, Probelt, CrossfireX, Bios support, Performance, Features, Compatability

Cons: No USB Charge when syste is off, No 2000Mhz tick ram speed

Great board overall. Tons of features. Quality VRM's. Overclocks my 8120 to 5.2GHz easily. Great bios and customer support. Great VRM/Mosfet/NB cooling with heatsinks. Tons of system control options. Supports CrossfireX. Ram speeds up to 2400Mhz. So many features and overclocks like a dream is all I really need to say. Couldnt ask for better. thumb.gif

Pros: Pretty colours and everything unlocked for awesome overclocking

Cons: A few things that i needed to look up but nothing the boys on the ROG forums couldn't help with.

Gorgeous looking board, makes it easy to overclock the FX processors and a pleasure to work with the bios with being able to use the mouse. smile.gifthumb.gif

Pros: AM3+ socket, DDR3 2033 (o.c.),Digi+ VRM w/ large passive heatsink, Crossfire ready, Voltminder LED, UEFI bios, ROG Connect, System Level Up

Cons: Overclocks so many ways but find Auto voltages on CPU and CPU/NB to be off

This board has been a dream to work, Yeah there was a few cons to include but who needs AUTO anyways. This board shipped from newegg with everything included plus some. Installed, booted, and OC within 10 minutes. Software package was useful including 1 year of protection from Kaspersky Antivirus. Running this board 24/7 on air with no issues. Able to really achieve stable overclock settings well stress testing in Prime95 and making real time bios changes using AIsuite2 and ROG connect, both could use some fine tuning but they work. UEFI BIOS takes some time to get used to, but once a little research is done the tweaking ability for this board is great.
