Pros: Tons of usb ports , very sturdy , tons of features
Cons: A little pricey
Overall Review: Running a 5600X , latest bios installed already out of the box. Tons of overclock settings in the bios. Cpu temps down 6-7 C over a competitors board I replaced it with. I assume it is due to the excellent power delivery and 90 amp phases. I hope when AM5 rolls out Asus makes a Dark Hero for it as well. Very happy with this board after using a competitors boards for years.
Pros: Pre installed waterblock with worlds first gpu leak detection. Textures are extremely crisp.
Cons: Only con is the price. The market was supposed to be on a downward trend. AMD cards are holding fairly steady price wise and I assume they will continue to do so.
Overall Review: First flagship card for me and has not disappointed. Looks great , performs great , waterblocked flexibility.
Pros: Not sure why others are complaining? This card is very solid , takes any game I throw at it at the highest settings in the game and Catalyst with no problems or fps drops whatsoever. And yes I am talking high end 2013 games.
But then again I do have a FX-6300 and 990FXA......
Cons: Heatsink and fan won't clean itself.
Overall Review: Even with my old Phenom 9500 this card worked very well.
With the FX-6300 , it blows me away!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros: Supported my FX-6300 right out of the box. Have not had to make any adjustments to the cpu in the bios. Easy 1 click driver install.
Cons: Slight problem with Crucial Ballistix DDR3 1866 dual channel 2x4gb kit. Even though it is a AMD board , you have to go to the bios and set the xmp to profile 1. Manually adjusting the memory multiplier caused a crash on reboot. Selecting profile 1 it is now at 1866 instead of 1333.
Overall Review: Great board , comes with sli bridge , 4 sata cables , and quit a bit of software. Not to even mention it looks great!
Pros: Well worth it! Have mine in a 990fxa-ud3 FX-6300 and could not be happier!
Cons: Having to buy an adapter , but I already knew that.
Overall Review: Excellent so far. Included software is pretty handy to have. Glad I finally made the switch!
Pros: I got mine today , and all I can say is WOW! Finally put the Phenom 9500 to rest we have used since 2008.
Cons: Maybe the stock cooler , but I went with a Hyper 212 Evo so I can't confirm that.
Overall Review: Was hesitating to upgrade but I am really glad I did! I haven't needed to overclock it yet , and really don't think I need to. This thing is a monster! I installed all the 990fxa-ud3 drivers , catalyst , ssd software , 7zip , directx , adobe , and installed a game at nearly the same time! Get the Hyper 212 Evo with this! My FX-6300 is sitting at 12c right now in an elite 430 case with 5 fans. I like the power saving features also.
