1 out of 5 eggsAsus M5A99FX Pro R2.0

Pros: Bios is nice, easy to setup and understand.

Cons: No sound. Have RMA'd and received a case number from Asus. Not the most helpful tech support, however, kudos to them being open at 9:00 EST to take my call. 3 separate calls, issue not resolved. I have ordered the same motherboard again hoping for a better result.

1 out of 5 eggs2 Bad Boards

Pros: It worked sometimes.

Cons: I had my first board for about a year before it died (memory\cpu issues).

I sent it back and was sent another board which won't boot from what looks to be gpu problems. This after about 2 months.

Both of these have been mobo issues as I have switched out all of the parts both times with known working parts.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Customer Service. DOA Motherboard.

Pros: Great mother board, if you get shipped one that isn't dead!

Cons: I purchased this mother board about three weeks ago because I fried my old one. I hooked up my old parts to it and kept getting errors, so I chalked it off as other things were fried too. So here I am sitting at 600+$ of items I bought because I thought THEY were the problem, but in reality I was sent a dead on arrival motherboard. I called newegg for a replacement, they said since I sent out my rebate I have to deal with the manufacturer for a warranty replacement....I spent 40 minutes on the phone with a guy who tried to convince me my ripjaw ram was not compatible with the motherboard and that's why I was getting the RAM slot error beeps I was getting. He continued to say he will not authorize a return until I get THE SAME RAM only in RT instead of XL. So I spent another 80$ to get the ram, only to find out that hey, guess what! It IS the motherboard. Customer service is lucky they are not open right now, because I am ready to release hell on earth. We will see how they handle their mess up.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the best AMD motherboards

Pros: *Lots of SATA ports.
*4- 3.0 USB ports that has an overcharge option to charge my cellphone quickly.
*Cools north and south bridge will with heat sinks.
*Spaced really well with DRAM and CPU Slots
*PCI-E options. Supports 3.1 even though it says 2.0. I heard 3.1 is a silly marketing idea for Intel boards.
*Supports my Vishera 9370
* Super software. Software in the box is outdated but once installed you can automatically update the software.
*Awesome best setting overclocking software.
*Windows start up Boost
* Board isnt green; it's closer to being black which should go well with your color theme.

Cons: None come to mind

Other Thoughts: Basically the best board for the price point. Totally happy with my choice and should be good for the next 2-3 years before having to upgrade to next gen processors. You'll be happy with this pick

5 out of 5 eggsM5A99FX Pro R2.0

Pros: Its great. I love the color, 1st reason why I got it. I wanted to saber-tooth but couldn't pass up $115.00 <<- obvious second reason. I have not overclocked on it yet but from all the research I have did ill be alright. FX-8320, Tri-X R9 290 :-D

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsBad SATA controller. Again!

Pros: When it worked for the first week it was a good board. Ran stable and had no problems. Lots of room for expansion and a nicely setup bios. Really a lot of monitoring capability with the included software for overclocking and hardware settings on the fly.

Cons: After about a week of normal use and mild gaming. The SATA controller started going south. Not the first one of these boards I've had this happen on. The other board granted was open box so I just let it go and bought a brand new one not open box. After a week of random read errors the sata controller finally wouldn't even recognize anything except on the secondary headers.

Other Thoughts: I've always bought asus boards for almost every build I've ever done and honestly I can say I am now going to steer clear of Asus. I have never had a single problem with one of their boards period. But this board I've had 2 of and have seen the same problem twice.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome motherboard

Pros: Love the bios. Like how everthing is blue and it matched all my blue LED case fans

Cons: This probably isn't neweggs fault but the box's condition when it showed up was in poor condition and there was an indent on the motherboard box too like someone punched it? There were no tall parts on the motherboard where the indent was but that was the only thing that was wrong but not enough to loose and egg.

Other Thoughts: For this motherboard it needs 9 standoffs and 9 grounding screws. The problem I only has 6 and i just need 3 more and i dont want to buy a 20 or 50 pack just to use 3. I haven't installed the motherboard yet I just know this is good because my friend has this board.
