5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Mobo

Pros: Great gaming motherboard for anybody who is on a budget. Lots of features and the UEFI bios is a breeze to use. SLI/Crossfire support is awesome at this price.

Cons: None I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Glad I went with this Mobo instead of the sabertooth. Been hearing about RAM issues from many others with the sabertooth and the M5A99FX Pro r2.0 has never let me down with the components I throw at it. :)

4 out of 5 eggsMother Board, Great! Rebate.... not

Pros: First if you're looking ate the ownership and tech knowledge for buying products, we(the reveiwers enter that not the site.) Second order of business, The board works fantastically. No DOA plugged the components in recognized everything. Not a single hiccup on getting the system running from the box. Flawless with my Vishera FX-6300 CPU. So far excellent buy for the actual product.

Cons: As with any re-bate they want to keep their money. My rebate got declined because " number of items allowed was exceeded." I only have the one ASUS Motherboard.... that is the only thing I mailed in a rebate for. So when you mail in a rebate don't expect it to be easy. I also called to talk to some one and got the machine to a point where it was going to have me speak with someone then told me they are closed in the middle of the day on a monday. I'll keep trying but that is why I took off an egg. Using re-bate to market the product, then not following through.

Other Thoughts: Board works very well for now. I will definitally update if it takes a turn for the worst. Also if it does fault, I will explain how the warrenty Process goes. Good Luck on building your System!

3 out of 5 eggsM5A99FX PRO R2.0

Pros: Cheap,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Well inexpensive but loves my AMD 9370

Cons: Lots From The Bios layout to the bios Flashing,
Unstable if you don't flash bios with new updated one.

Other Thoughts: I don't like the bios, I'm old school and this bios is not old school type, not fun to find setting, and makes it very complicated to O/C from Bios.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice!

Pros: Very Easy to overclock.
Has very functional UEFI BIOS which lets you go back to the standard look.
I bought this last fall and haven't had any issues.
Had no problems adjusting memory or CPU clock speeds
AI Suite II allows you to monitor and adjust you motherboard.
Very stable

Cons: Would rather have had more USBs instead of two PS/2 jacks but this is not a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a very good MB, the con listed is something that was known before buying and is not an issue. This board is very stable and ASUS is very good about updating their bios.

4 out of 5 eggsok so far

Pros: new, plenty of usb ports, no onboard fans to fail

Cons: Haven't figured out why if I shutdown normally and shut off my external line regulator, the computer will start back up automatically when the line regulator is turned back on. The bios settings for restore on power loss don't affect this behavior and I think only apply to a unexpected shutdown, not a normal shutdown and removal of power to the power supply. Not a big deal, just an anomaly.

Cons: ITS NO MAID OF GOLD!!!!! ....... where's MA GOLD!!!!,

but seriously very nice boards/price/options.
