Pros: Everything you need for a great price and many OC options!

Cons: None!

Great board with many overclocking options. It has your standard I/O ports for a motherboard at this cost in this day and age. That said, I'd looked to the smaller things that one would argue takes this board a notch above the others in this category. For example, the BIOS update was smooth as butter and my most recent build with this motherboard went event free with Win 7 Pro and OCZ Agility 4 (a good thing in our world)! Speaking of BIOS ASUS UEFI BIOS was very impressive, detailed and easy to use. The amount of SATA6 ports, USB ports, and fan connectors was icing on the cake.

Recommend to anyone looking for a great experience, most recent technology for AMD and overclocking options. Even when AMD's new chipset comes out this board will last and allow you to stay relevant for a couple more years, not to mention the cost will decrease even more.

Pros: USB 3.0, Ai-Stuff, CeraM!X, UEFI Bios Digi+ VRM

Cons: if there is one. it is so insignificant that it doesn't matter.

Solid Board, based on the 990fx chipset (I thought they might use 990x) more SATA III Ports than I would ever need. Very good slot spacing. A PCI PORT!!! Easy oc options for those who don't know how. TPU-EPU is nice. CeraM!X is nice so the board doen't have to look so bad with Armor on it (Intel)

Pros: USB3.0, Firewire, All fan headers are 4Pin

Cons: The color scheme to some people?

This motherboard is great. I originally bought this because I was planning to go bulldozer once it releases, but I was (like a lot of you) disappointed with bulldozers performance. I'm currently running an Athlon II X3 unlocked to a Phenom II X4 and it runs great! Overclocking options are easy to find too!

For the hardware, it comes with USB 3.0 and Firewire built in, USB 2.0 and Realtek onboard sound. It comes with one PS/2 port for a keyboard or mouse (only one though). It has 2 fan headers for cpu fans and 4 headers for the chassis fan. All of them are 4 pin. Don't forget SLI and the UEFI bios. Overall, I am quite satisfied with this motherboard. thumb.gif
