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: Connectors for everything
Ease of setup
Awesome graphical BIOS that works with a USB mouse

Cons: No Firewire port - I don't need but be aware if you do

Other Thoughts: Weird RAM sockets (another reviewer claims his were broken but the catch is fixed at one side, it says so in the manual

Went together like a dream, everything recognized first time, OS installed quickly with no problems

My system:
Cooler Master HAF 932 Case
Corsair TX750M Modular PSU
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Motherboard
AMD FX4350 Vishera 4.2 GHz CPU
Sapphire 100364L Radeon R9 270X 2GB GPU
Corsair Vengeance 2x4 GB CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R PC1600 DDR3
Samsung 840 EVO 120 GB SSD
WD Black WD5003AZEX HDD
Samsung SH-224DB SATA DVD Burner
Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit OS

UPDATE
After 3 years this board is still going strong, still for sale on NewEgg, and it still delivers awesome performance. The Corsair TX750M PSU died after about 4 months and I replaced it with a SeaSonic M12II 750 SS-750AM2 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Full-modular Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready which solved all my issues and has purred along ever since.
In Nov 2015, I upgraded to an SSD, I tried a Crucial MX200 first and had endless issues, I then switched that to a Samsung 850 EVO and it's been flying ever since. I had some lock up problems upgrading from Win 7 to 10 (same on my Dell laptop) and eventually used the method of creating fresh Win 10 install DVD from Win 10 that solved all issues for this and the same approach fixed my laptop. I also upgraded the RAM to 16 Gigs using another set of the same Corsair Vengeance RAM listed above

Crucial MX200 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It worked for a few days

Cons: It died, it just won't boot - I get a no boot device found error all the time. Put my old HDD back in, booted first time as expected, and I'm back to where I was less the 3 days I lost messing with it; the stupid thing is that I can plug the MX200 in using an external eSATA cable and get to all the files on it, it just won't boot. I used Diskpart to try to reestablish the boot partition but it still won't boot.
Had several terse support calls with Crucial who eventually told me it had to be RMAd. What they didn't tell me was they weren't going to ship the replacement - that might have been used anyway - until they received the dead one and they (originally) were insisting I paid for shipping. So I've sat here for a week waiting for the 'new' one to arrive only to find it hasn't shipped.
This is going to become a return.

Other Thoughts: What a waste of time

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: I bought this board in Oct 2013 with an AMD FX4350 Vishera CPU and it's been awesome from day 1. I started with Windows 7 64 and it's just upgraded itself to Windows 10 and is still running like a dream - I also got over 20 Gigs back off my 120 Gig SSD C: drive.

Cons: At first I fitted a Corsair Enthusiast PSU but it a) made noises and b) failed after 9 months. It was replaced by a SeaSonic M12II SS-750 AM2 PSU and that has been problem free ever since.

Other Thoughts: Cooler Master HAF 932 Case
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Motherboard

WD Black WD5003AZEX HDD
Samsung SH-224DB SATA DVD Burner
Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit OS
Corsair TX750M Modular PSU (failed)
SeaSonic M12II 750 SS-750AM2 750W ATX12V / EPS12V (replacement = AWESOME)
