5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Board

Pros: I have used many different AMD boards in quite a few system builds, but this has been the best of the pack. My system is rock solid, and the performance is top notch. setup could get no easier than this board.build quality of this board is excellent

Cons: I have not found any with this board, and I have looked.

Other Thoughts: My system consist of the EVGA 122-M2-NF59-TR motherboard, AMD 5600+ @ 3.1ghz, 2 gigs Apida ram @ 5-5-5-12 running 888mhz, iStar nitro case, Aerocool Zerodba 620watt PS, EVGA 8800GTS 320mb running @ 600mhz core, 1000mhz memory WD Raptor 74 gig hd, 2 DVD Burners, 40 gig WD storage drive, 2 Seagate Freeagent external drives 250gb each.
system is stable as a rock with no issues or lock-ups. CPU idles at 28c with a thermalright SI-128 with a silverstone 120mm fan. temp rises to approx. 36-38c after 2 hrs of counterstrike source. I average approx. 175- 250 fps in game. I could not ask for a more stable solid running, fast system that this.

No Core2 Duo need apply here

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!!!!!

Pros: The 590SLI chipset is the best (single CPU slot) you can get on an AMD platform. Recognized my 1080p hdtv in the bios and sent out the right signal! No more switching to vga to see bios, then switching back to DVI to get hi-res in windows (my old mobo sent a 640*480 which is not supported by most hdtvs via dvi-hdmi). Full x16 width on the PCIx slots give my 8800s a little extra in SLI. RAID0 support W/O an extra controller. 4 Power Leds are great for PSU troubleshooting and the little 2-digit screen tells me when I'm overclocked too high. Oh, and It's black.

Cons: Did not recognize my 6000+ and very glitchy with SLI-RAM out of the box, but a quick BIOS update fixed both of these problems. It uses much more power then any of my previous boards. Chipset runs very hot at about 47C at idle and upwards of 54C at load, probably due to the fact that they're right under my video cards with almost no breathing room.

Other Thoughts: The first thing you should do is update the BIOS from EVGA's website. Get bios from evga and drivers from nvidia, don't bother with the ones on the disk. Foxconn makes the EXACT same board and charges about $60 more.
The only AMD board I can find better is the ASUS Crosshair (just because the chipset heatsinks are MUCH better), but expect to pay a bit more for it. Overall, it's a great board that desreves a perfect score.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Board

Pros: SLI, PCIex4, roomy, works well with XP and Vista 64, good RAID (if you download the current driver set from nVIDIA)

Cons: VERY poor documentation - Virtually none.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to flash to the new BIOS. I am ready for another one, but now they are out of stock!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board!

Pros: Full featured board has everything one could want. Rock solid performance.

Cons: Unknown device under Windows XP for AMD AwayMode. XP MCE and Vista have drivers for it, but not x64 XP.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: I like the Idea of having LED post codes so you know what is going on in the bios. I don't overclock but I am a gamer and SLi I'll test in the future.

Cons: memory 1 is close to the heatsink. That is foxconn's fault.

Other Thoughts: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0GHz, EVGA Geforce 8600 GTS, 2GB ram, 250GB ATA HHD, ATA DVD

4 out of 5 eggsPartial retraction of last review

Pros: Turns out the NIC issues were a driver issue, which is fixed by going to nvidia and getting their mobo drivers.

Cons: Not the greatest OC for me, though that might be my proc.

Also, the NIC shows up as 10/100, not gigabit.

2 out of 5 eggsDo not buy, not worth money and trouble

Pros: If it worked, the feature set is pretty awesome. Dual gigabit with teaming, full SLI, etc.

Cons: With my 4800+ Brisbane, it does not recognize a half multiplier for the CPU. It does not accurately report temps in the BIOS, and the auto-shutdown for excessive CPU temps cannot be turned off. So even when my CPU and HS are cool to the touch, the mobo thinks it's 90C and shuts down.

Heavy load on the network was causing sudden shutdown and reboot. I put in a PCI network card and the reboots stopped.

Now my computer blue-screens when doing heavy multitasking and gaming. I've replaced the RAM, reinstalled and verified that no programs are causing the problem.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY. A motherboard should not cost more than 100. Get Bio-star, GB, or MicroStar mobos.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Decent motherboard - not the best but not bad.

Cons: Won't boot from the DVD drive while using a SATA DVD drive. I updated to the latest Bios hoping it would fix the problem but it didn't. If you buy this motherboard make sure you have a IDE cdrom or dvd drive in order to be able to install Windows on a new hard drive.

Not enough fan connectors.

Other Thoughts: Wish I had sticked with a DFI board.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This mobo is great. It has a lot of USB ports, two LAN ethernet ports, looks great (black silicon chip) and is SLI capable for greater hardware flexability for future upgrades. If you download the latest drivers (for the XP OS) from nVidia (not EVGA) then you also get a networking program that better manages bandwidth for game-play.

Cons: All of the mobo drivers on the CD worked except the ethernet drivers (which, upon installation, crashed the computer). Go to: nvidia.com > Download Drivers Tab > Download Drivers > Platform/nForce Drivers > nForce 590 SLI AMD > (and OS type). Download and problem is easily remedied

Other Thoughts: Download the latest drivers from nVidia NOT EVGA
