    It does what I need it too and is all black which fit the color scheme. If I didn't can about the color scheme I would have went with a higher end Asus board but this works ok.

    A good motherboard with a very nice bios. Only downside is that it doesn't have very many fan headers.

    Overclocks well, make sure you get REV 4.0 or above

    Fantastic build quality. Large heatsinks, great RAM slot placement.

    Running 2 cards x16 is no issue as the USB/Audio/Front IO connector ports don't get in the way!

    Amazing but why those little tiny wires at the bottom nearly made me cry trying to put them in :(. Besides that It is amazing especially if you spill some watercooled fluid on it, then it wont break.

    Sources: Unfortunately, experience

    I replaced my my ASUS m5a99x evo with this board because it had much more capable power delivery. The bios options are not as comprehensive and the layout is not as visually appealing, but it is capable for my needs. I would buy it again if I were building another AMD desktop.

    I underestimated this Motherboard. Definitely worth a 5 Star.

    from completed build Athena AMD Balance Gaming build

    Pros: Looks very nice and the new revision included a heat pipe between the north bridge and the VRMs. Good heat dissipation temps in HWmonitor for the mobo around high 30's ~ low 40's under load (with good airflow 2 corsairs SP 120 on the front) Supports Overclocking and has been very stable with it The UEFI supports profiles

    Cons: Needs more Fan Headers!!!!! really!! are you kidding me! I ended up using even the power fan connector, but had to use a low speed resistor adapter to minimize the noise since it runs at 100% all the time Cpu core voltages were moving all over the place even when set static I know this also has to do with AMD architecture requirements but come on. The UEFI is not that easy to use, its decent enough The EasyTune software has very limited options for this mobo (I've seen pic of the software on other mobos) and looks like its from the 90's. The documentation is bad and the illustrations worst.

    Other Thoughts: Not the best overclocker but gets the job done. Cpu Load line calibration can be quite useful just be careful with the setting you select. I recommend normal (which is what I'm using with my oc) or less unless you are water cooled.

    To me the biggest down side is the lack of fan headers the rest is not big deal.

    Its holding my 8350 at 4.4Ghz with air CM hyper 212 evo.

    Nice motherboard, the BIOS feels a tiny bit sluggish compared to some other motherboards - it still responds well though. Lack of fan headers, can only control CPU fan and the first system fan. Solidly built.
