Pros: After upgrading Bios to the newest 2501 Ver... Everything Seems to be working in a usable manner.
Cons: Install and setup of the Motherboard, drives, My LCD monitor, were a pain in the rump, but I should be much happier after I replace some stuff.
Other Thoughts: When I first got this MB I think I was expecting more from this MB than my ASUS M4N98TD Evo MB. I can't complain really its my fault for not trying a CRT Montior to do everything from the get go and updating BIOS... That's what my main issue was not updating BIOS when I got it.. and expecting it to work right out of the box... So when you get this Motherboard just make sure you have the newest BIOS downloaded and ready to update your Motherboard..
Look at my first Review on the Sabertooth MB...
Pros: Well what Pro's I have are that its fast with a AM3+ CPU.
Cons: I have no idea why this motherboard is only able to use VGA setup when you boot it and UEFI Bios, Set up anything before windows setup or boot in to windows. It took me over 2 hours to find out that I needed a OLD CRT with VGA to see anything before installing windows or drives or anything.... My newer DVI/VGA LCD monitor wouldn't even show anything with both or either cable plugged in to the GPU!!!! I was going crazy... Then I plugged in to my son's old Computer Setup minus his tower of course and WALLAH! I see the Logo Screen and then can get in to UEFI BIOS after pressing DirectKey and MemOK buttons for the last hour and plugging and unplugging and checking and double checking everything I did, before doing it and after doing it... So now I'm using a OLD CRT and My new LCD Monitor, the CRT for BOOT up and BIOS, and my LCD for in Windows!.... What is wrong? I would like to use my LCD for my New MB and not have to use Two Monitors.... Also I can't RAID my Hard drive either with out some other hard drive going offline or not showing up in Windows or Windows Installer.... maybe after getting new BIOS and trying a few things in that New UEFI I might be able to get my LCD to work....

Pros: Plug in Play! Well Sorta, after putting in my New Sabbertooth 990FX R2.0 MB, and putting the CPU Heatsink and fan, thats going on 6 years old. Hey it works better than the OEM Fan Heatsink combo. Nice and fast, cooler at higher speeds then my old AMD3 P2 X4 965 @ 3.2 Stock..
Cons: I shouldn't have a con for something I knew would make my newer pc faster.
Other Thoughts: I would say to anybody get one, even if your doing surfing the web to gaming at 4K this CPU is FAST!!! Also my new MB caused so much problems that I should have looked in to another MB... See my Review on the MB Sabbertooth 990FX R2.0 to find out what I mean.READ FULL REVIEW
