ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • AMD 990FX + SB950
  • FX / Phenom II / Athlon II / Sempron 100 Series
  • DDR3 1866/1600/1333/1066

Pros:

Excellent Quality
Heat Resistant

Cons:

Very Long Startup Time (Logo Flash Twice)
Suspicious Hardware Communication Problem (Video Card Blue Tinted with Multicolor Streak)
Resume From Sleep Make The Computer Feeling Groggy For Few Seconds

Other Thoughts:

I don't know if I want to blame this motherboard but got two hardwares that giving me problem, video card and sound card. Resuming from sleep will send lagged audio sound making this computer feeling groggy for a few moment.

Have video problem when playing video on YouTube in full screen that would cause blue tinted color with multistreak.

Who do I blame? video card? sound card? OR motherboard? Please get with your engineer team and figure out?

I am using a GTX N560 MSI video card with X-Fi Soundblaster FaTal1ty model sound card. Note: My front lights of the sound card no longer light up.

Motherboard's model logo should never be flash more than 2 times, and the startup time is LONG for more than 2 minutes. Computer running AMD FX 8 Cores with 16GB memory follow by a giant Cooler Master brand CPU heatsink resting on the processor. Computer's temperture is stable and remain cool at all time.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issue you had with the motherboard.

Regarding long boot time, please try updating to the latest version BIOS. Remove all non-OS drives and use only 1 DIMM from the 16GB set.

For the blue tints and streaking, does it only occur when playing flash video, or does it also happen when playing local videos? Try updating to the latest drivers and on Youtube flash video, right click, settings, disable hardware acceleration. If playing local video, try obtaining the latest media playback software and update the codecs.

Regards,
Benson
