Pros: One of the very few 990FX chipset motherboards with an M.2 slot. Not a huge performance increase because of limited bandwidth, but exceeded the typical SATA 3 channel on the motherboard.
Works well with a AMD 8350
Cons: Not stable with the AMD FX 9590. Could have been heat related, but I am running with liquid cooling. When I downgraded to 8350, performance was so much more reliable with a relatively small hit.
Old and tired 990FX chipset needs a real refresh. Looking forward to Zen and supported motherboards in the next 6 months to a year.
Other Thoughts: Recommend this to others with a limited budget and want to try out M.2 SSD in a non-Intel motherboard.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Single performance nearly on par with a pair of Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon 7870s. Additionally, a single card generates far less heat then a single Vapor-X card. When used with a AMD 9590 FX, system runs more stable with less crashes due to too much heat.
Cons: May need to play with settings a bit to minimize or eliminate display artifacts when playing certain games, particularly XCOM 2. Drivers may not be fully mature for Radeon R9.READ FULL REVIEW
