990FX at a good price
Unreliable. USB locks up system or causes it to reboot.
I have 4 of these boards in my possession at this time. All of them developed USB issues. If you plug in a USB flash drive, the system would reboot. We spent months trying to figure out the issue.... New Ram, new CPU, etc. Countless driver reinstalls... Nothing worked. We finally swapped out these boards with a competitor's 990fx board and have not had a lick of trouble with them since. Same Ram, CPU and video cards. I have purchased a few ASROCK boards in the past and have had good luck with them but the EXTREME 3 board has something fundamentally wrong with it.
