ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Its Asus.
Bios with many bells and whistles (hard OS is a cinch, recovery from bad OS build with press of a button).

Cons: Not a fan of the angled SATA mounts. Prone to bad connection if not using a locking SATA cable.
2 of the 6 SATA ports don't recognize every type of device through BIOS.
Very difficult to get Crossfire to be recognized at pcie2.0 x16 for the second GPU board. You need to finagle the board many times with many reboots to get good contact on the tan x16 slot further from the CPU.
Onboard audio failed after 1 year.
Onboard LAN port burned out after 1.8 years. (literally saw arching of surface mount caps)
There must be some sort of grounding issue, that or just sloppy soldering to cause the failure of the on board peripherals.

Other Thoughts: I have all my items plugged through a surge protecting power-strip.
Too lazy to do a warrentee call on this for the failed peripherals since I was able to just put a new audio card on a expansion slot and use a USB3.0 to LAN dongle to make up for the failed hardware. Who knows how much down time Ill have while waiting for them to fix this or confirm that the hardware is failed and send me a new one.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Easy to install. Great price for the power. Running stable at 5GHz using cooler 9SIA4S82VE5282 and a few OC tweaks.

Cons: none

Arctic Silver Arctic Alumina 5g Thermal Adhesive Set AATA-5G
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I used this for mounting an extra copper NB heat sink to my Low profile passive cooling video card for extra cooling in a midtower atx case. The heat sink was mounted on the top of the other one present with the video card in the mobo. It made my idle temps drop 7 C. The adhesive has held the extra heat sink without fail even after transfer of the video card to a different PC.

The set time gave me plenty of time to get the epoxy mixed well without needed to rush into placement of the heat sink.

Cons: none
