Great Mother

Pros: Needed to build a couple very capable machines and we used these MB's and they have nothing but impress everyone as well as us too.
Very powerful with many large drawing programs running and with many computer aided machining programs running and the 8-Core processor sings along at 50%.
All with three large monitors keeping workflow going.

Cons: None

Really good board.

Pros: This board did great at handling a little bit of abuse since it was my first build.
Really easy to use interface on bios.
Diagnosing problems is easy because of the code reader.
Really nice colors and schemes.

Cons: Never could get my Ethernet adapter to work. Even with driver updates. Ended up buying a Ethernet card to be able to run hard wire to it for internet.
Finally going out on me. (overheating no matter what I do) Still works for now. 4

Other Thoughts: Had the 9590 in this thing which i know is rough on the power consumption. In the beginning I only had a 750 watt PSU in it. The Bios under-clocked the processor until I could figure out what was wrong. That saved the board from being burnt up. Upon installing a new PSU @ 1000 watts and resetting CMOS, everything was as good as new.

Wonderful MOBO yet...

Pros: -Easy to install (both the board and components into it)
-Great BIOS
-Useful and simple OC program/capacity for tweaking
-Looks good (for those with a window in their case)
-Good range of capatability

Cons: -Some slight wrestling to remove some cables (could be associated to the PSU I had)
-When something goes awry, can be somewhat confusing to troubleshoot
-Ceased working with an F.F. code after a year and a few months

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this board, as I feel like I've just gotten unlucky here. I never pushed it beyond its normal settings, as I had a voltage problem that caused me to underclock my CPU (AMD 9590). Since it is still under manufacturer's warranty, I'll be seeking a replacement, if it's not too much trouble. (I've seen some reviews that say ASUS Customer Service can be...lacking.) Either way, outside of the current issue, it was wonderful to use and work with.

Great AMD motherboard

Pros: I have owned this motherboard more than a year it runs great, great bios interface and overclocking capacity. I strongly suggest using supported ram modules listed at ASUS site.
I have had no issues with this board and considering a comparable intel ROG board and CPU would be more than double the price.
That said you have to use common sense. The big killer on any system is heat ,I have the Wraith processor cooler in a well ventilated pc case with 200mm fans to keep it cool and all my cables are neatly tucked away for maximum airflow.
Combine this board with a good power supply and cooling it will serve you well.

I would not recommend FX 9590 cpu because at 200 watts it is beyond the maximum wattage rating of 140 watts.

Cons: None

Good board, for about a year

Pros: love the lighting, worked awesome out of the box.....I've apparently had my Trident z ram installed in the wrong slots for the entire time machine was running and never knew the difference until coming home one day this past week to my PC being off... started investigating and realized along the way I had them installed wrong but still ran @ 2400 flawlessly.

excellent board while it runs, overclockers wet dream tho with my 9590 I couldn't do much with it (tho I'm thinking maybe my ram configuration may have had something to do with it.....whoops lol)

Cons: died exactly one year after being up and running. classic "F.F. won't POST and shuts down" error. Replaced the CPU with a new one (suspect overheated from a clogged radiator) because I couldn't smell any fried electricronics or see any scorch marks and popped caps....but same issue with a new CPU.

So now I'm board shopping again as I'm guessing my warranty is long gone on the board.

Other Thoughts: was an excellent board while it lasted, would buy again but not for the price it is today. If I use this board again it's going to be because I got Asus to warranty it, Otherwise for the cost I think I'll just take a loss on my 9590's (since I own two now :/ ) and upgrade to ryzen.

c'est la'vie crosshair....if this is the unfortunate end, it was great while it lasted.
