ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It worked for a few months.

Cons: It constantly was detecting that I plugged a Mic / Speaker in.
Then it caught fire, yes dead serious the motherboard caught fire.
I didn't even overclock with the motherboard, and it caught fire.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it at all.
I sent it to ASUS for repairs wrapped in 2inchs of bubble wrap.
After contacting ASUS cause my RMA number no longer pulled open my case online they said it was in repair already and will be done soon.

I contact them again after two day's and they said it was damaged in shipping and cause of that it is now no longer under warranty and I need to pay $147 to get it repaired.

Would have been nice if they told me two days before when I contacted the company, Decided to pull ASUS up on the better Business bureau only to find out the company has
"shady repair policy's, with a total of 861 issues regarding the company's repairs on products purchased"

I asked for a Manager regarding the issue they won't even put one of the phone to talk to me, they continued to promptly tell me I need to pay the $147, and nothing else at one point the employee proceeded to ignore me cause I said I want to speak to a manager.

Don't waste your money buy a Gigabyte Motherboard

ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It works well, despite not being able to raid.
It is also easily OC'd for maximum performance.

Cons: Had the board for over a year, finally got a chance to raid 6 SSD's again for maximum performance with this board

Only to find out the board "MAY" support Raid, but there are countless issues with it, even after the newest BIO's update and the latest Raid Drivers from AMD

You can set a raid up using Legacy Raid drivers.
You can't set up a raid using the UEFI Raid Drivers.

Then when trying to install Windows thru a flash drive the Raid doesn't even register as existing, if you switch it from Legacy to UEFI the SATA III ports stop working and no longer recognize any drives attached to them anymore, can get the raid showing up in the OS on a single drive

ONLY if booted from another copy of windows and running in Legacy Raid mode, but once it restarts to continue installation the drives no longer show up to the windows installer and can no longer install Windows.

Google yielded hundreds of issues with the Sabertooth 990FX Raid tried them all didnt work ASUS Support was usel

Other Thoughts: PEG/PCI doesn't work with nvidia Technology and will result in the GPU's not being detected properly.

Asus Tech support not very helpful, and concerned with my issue with their product.

Spend 2 hours trying to online tech support to which I kept getting kicked endlessly.

Phone call about 20-40mins on the phone to see if they had this in stock only to find out they will email me if they do.

Had audio shorting out once the drivers were installed had to get the newest realtek drivers from their website, and the newest bio's from asus to fix the issue's that were already present in the system.

Raid Issue can't be rectified without a replacement of the board but sense I am moving to another country it is a massive inconvenience to me cause I can't get it replaced now even if I wanted too.

Don't buy it if you want to raid, you will be disappointed do your research on Google first before you purchase this product, getting Raid working on the Asus 990FX Sabertooth is legendar
