ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
  • AMD 790FX

4 out of 5 eggs Great Board A+ but PCI spacing issues 06/19/2008

This review is from: ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Excellent stability for Quad Core. Works great with 1066 DDR2

Cons:

PCI slots are very close to PCIE slots making cooling of video cards difficult if you need to use both PCI slots and multiple video cards its a real issue.
Also SATA 90 degree connectors are tough to connect to in my case "ANTEC ATLAS 550"

Other Thoughts:

It was between 3 boards (MSI,Gigabyte,Asus) this seemed the best according to Reviews using bench marks and extrem tests on several sites. But if I was to do it again the Gigabyte might be a better solution. Never sure till you try. ;)
I have 9Yrs experience working with computers, large networks and servers.
