Pros:

This is a second review to this board as I have had quite some time to use the functions. I paired this with an FX-8120 - 125w. At stock settings, I have no problems whatsoever with this board. Its stable, efficient for the most part, and has excellent features... unless your overclocking....

Cons:

The problem I have run into with this board.. VDROOP at excessive levels. I have my CPU at 1.5v in bios, and realistic voltages are at 1.416v (under load) Which is still unstable for the overclock at 4.4ghz.

Temps are at 39c, and the VRMS are blazing hot. I have put fans on the VRMS to help control the heat issue, but the 4+1 phase just won't cut the mustard. If you want to OC, then please look at a different board with a 6+2 phase or higher.

Other Thoughts:

With that aside, there have been very few problems I have encountered with this motherboard, and it is sturdy, the capacitors are holding up, and it is a great board for the features it holds. Would recommend this board for anyone wanting a stable board with very little fuss. It just works.

Just wanted to update since the first review I gave in 2011.
