Pros: Great motherboard for the price! I purchased this to go with my FX-8320 processor because not every AM3 mobo can use the new 8 core CPU's.
Other Thoughts: Just wanted to mention that after I hooked the computer all up it kept freezing and restarting on me. I first thought it was the power supply so I replaced that because it wasn't new. It was not the power supply. I then ran memtest 86 on both RAM sticks and the test restarted. I then ran them separate and they worked just fine with no errors. I had placed the RAM in DIMM slots 1 and 3 for dual channel. This was in fact not the correct placement and that was causing my restarts and freezes. READ DIRECTIONS and if you have two of the same sticks put them in DIMMS 2 and 4 as they are priority 1 and 2 over the other slots. I felt really dumb but just wanted to give a heads up. The RAM I used was G-Skill Sniper 1600 8 gig sticks (16 total).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I recently upgraded to this processor and am very happy so far. It runs everything I throw at it with ease. You cant beat the price for an 8 core CPU! I did a lot of research before I purchased this processor and it was the best price/performance out of all the other processors on the market today. I was also impressed that the stock heatsink had copper pipes.
Other Thoughts: Great processor from AMD!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Installed right away on my ASUS sabertooth mobo. I had already purchased 8 gigs of this RAM so I upgraded to 16 gigs. It read it right away at the 1600 speed. Corsair is the only memory I will buy after my issues with a couple of the other memory manufactures.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
