5 out of 5 eggsBest of Breed AMD AM3 990 Boards

Pros: The component indicator lights for mother board power, video, memory and cpu. I love the case header block

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: would buy again, recommend to friends. I like ASUS. I have hero maximus boards for my intel pc's. They work, stable, long lasting. I was trying to do a budget build connect to 60 inch TV for streaming and Steam gaming PC. I went with a GA970 board first. The build went fine but after a week i had a component failure with no post. RMA power supply, didn't help, replaced mb with this and the indicator lights for CPU remains red with the FX8350. RMA CPU. When new CPU arrives we'll see how accurate those indicator lights are. I still have no idea why after a week the CPU failed and am shocked that the mb points to cpu as in all my years of building i have never experienced a cpu failure. i wish i had gotten this mb first would've likely saved unneeded RMA of power supply.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 motherboard. What kind of PC case do you have? Please note, motherboards don't come with standoffs, screws, or speakers. You would have to buy speakers separate and plug it directly into your green audio port. For your information, case standoffs and screws are supposed to be provided by the manufacturer of your PC case, not the motherboard manufacturer. I would recommend contacting the retailer where you bout your chassis to inquire about the case screws and standoffs. If you have any technical questions or general inquires please feel free to contact me at cl-nestor@asus.com.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best Regards,

5 out of 5 eggsFirst AMD Build

Pros: Great Board, and features Love Asus Products! This is my first AMD built pc ever and 6th Asus Board I bought !

Cons: The only thing was ( my mistake) I bought this board off of another site, Paired it with an AMD 8320e 16 gigs Of Gskill Ripjaw ddr3 1333, and Fx6760 video card just to get the system up and running and a Crucial 250 gig ssd, It booted very fast and ran good for 20 minutes after that every 20 minutes it would restart itself, Nothing was running hot and even did it after I disconnected everything of it, finally had to RMA the board waiting for it to come back now. Should have bout it from Newegg!
