Pros: Runs great.
Extremely Fast. (As far as APUs go)
Better monitoring than most boards.
XMP Profiles are selectable!
Cons: Likes to run the CPU at full tilt in the BIOS (Assures you your fan is working)
Time/Date settings unavailable.
Pros: $75 off was nice.
Runs COLD @ 60*F (Bios Temp)
Runs SILENT @ ~650RPM (Bios RPM)
Doesn't break a sweat running my 955BE & Dual ATI 4890's (XFX - HD-489A-ZDDC)
Other Thoughts: LOTS of CABLES...Awesome
Make sure to check your load balancing for devices, I put HD's on rail 4 and DVD & BluRay drives on Rail 6
Pros: ATI Radeon 4890?!? Temperature control is VERY easy in CCC. 35% keeps cards COOL and quiet! Fan's can be silenced by my Samsung LN46A750 (46" 750 Series) @ very low sound levels. DVI to HDMI converter works flawlessly. XFX Support and Double Lifetime warranty! (They answered all 5 of my questions prior to buying 2 of these, and my last 5 questions after buying these, without failure on their part!)
Will also run games and video at very high settings while UNDERCLOCKED! perfectly fine! (& cooler)
Cons: Hot idle around 120*F w/ custom fan settings this can be lowered to 110*F easily. Underclock the card while not playing games and this can be lowered to even 100*F
Other Thoughts: Custom fan controls are the way to go to keep these baby's cool! When in crossfire, use lower card as primary card to keep temperatures even (and lower) between cards, main card runs slightly hotter (~5*F) than second. (Heat rises)READ FULL REVIEW
