    Researched it at Asus support forums, again...another common problem with this board and no sign of solution.

    This is actually my first ASUS board. I have been using MSI products for the last few years with no issues, so why the change? Upon reading the specifications of the new MSI, I liked the fact that ASUS has more features including the core unlocker that allows all cores to achieve full performance capabilities, also I've heard from friends that ASUS makes some really good bios chipsets. This board has some really noticeable features like USB 3 and SATA 6 which don't have so much of an impact on users now, but will soon in the future. Another feature which I have not seen before is the easy bios upgrade feature that allows a user to upgrade bios in bios and checks the file to be sure its compatible with the chipset. There are many other feature which I haven't had the chance to mess around with yet, like the Hybrid CrossfireX technology and ASUS TurboV EVO, not to mention even more overclocking features, however, I must admit I'm not one to overclock even with liquid cooling installed, mostly since I'm not a millionaire and can't afford to overheat a cpu, but if you have the money and experience this board will definitely take advantage of what your processor can do, also this will support the new 6 cores; also this new chipset features the Radeon HD 4290 onboard GPU that supports 512mb and has direct X 10.1 features and comes with multiple VGA outputs, HDMI, DVI, RGB. I only used the onboard when first firing her up, so I didn't get a chance to see what it could do in games like Bioshock or Battlefield Bad Company, but I can imagine being able to play at 1920 X 1080p with just about every setting maxed.Read more ›

    bought this board since it was an AM3 socket which was what i was looking for, overall im very impressed by the board, had a bit of a problem installing the board in my case, since there wasnt quite enough room for the back panel cover.

    the board has a great design too, love the mem-ok button, had some initial problems with my RAM (it doesnt accept 1600MHz RAM right off the bat), but thats simple to get around, just put the RAM in, and use the MEM-OK button and it will work perfectly fine, then just go to the BIOS and change the frequency to the 1600MHz that you wanted.
    the BIOS is also great for this board, lets you tweak allot of stuff very easily and the layout is very user friendly.

    If you want to take a gamble, you can opt to try the core unlocker, some AMD processors have locked cores, for example the Athlon II and Phenom II X2 and X3 models are models with locked cores, if you are lucky enough, the locked cores will be in workable condition, therefore, adding 1 or maybe even 2 more cores to your processor. just a bit of a warning and note on that, the X2 and X3 models are usually designated that because of manufacturing defects on the locked cores, so remember that theres no guarantee you will get extra cores, and also if you do unlock the cores, you may have to fiddle with the settings to get them to be stable. but hey, if you buy a dual/triple core and try the unlocker, you cant loose, at worse you will just be stuck with the processor you paid for, which is still pretty good since AMD offers very good prices for their products, the best is getting a hell of a lot more bang for your buck by getting a quad core for the price of a dual.

    I ahve used ASUS boards almost exclusively for several years now with no failures period. I guess I was preparing for one from this board as the technology was new, ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 promised a lot. Frankly, I expected to experience promises unfulfilled. Not so. I bought the board and an AMD 965 processor from Amazon, assembled the pieces and was amazed by an initial output of 3.67 ghz (AMD Turbo) on the processor. 1600 mhz memory ran at 1460 or so. I was impressed. And the best part of computer building, in my opinion, and aside from all the bios items working, and proper lights going on is the tuning. This board is simplicity itself to build and a wonder to tune, and I am way picky about my machine's ability to perform, and that takes tuning. Never in 30+ builds have I ever experienced teh level of direct change possible on working components. This build is the AMD quad core at 3.75 ghz, 8 gigs of Corsair DDR3 1600 RAM at 1500 or so mhz, ATI 5770 PCIE at 108, on the board. It shows a running temp of 81 degrees!! This is one sweet board, and Amazon delivered 36 hours after a midnight order - well done!

    I have never seen a motherboard so winy about what ram you put into it. I have tried 2 different RAMS, from Patriot and G.Skill and it just doesn't accept them in duel channel mode. It will accept any ram as long as it is in single channel mode, but try and put it into duel channel formation (Put both on same color to get duel channel) and this motherboard just says NO. It wont post with any RAM I throw at it and there are plenty of people complaining about compatibility issues. This is an amazing motherboard, but you have to stick to their listed RAM modules listed in the manual or chances are, it won't work.
    Other than that, the motherboard has everything an overclocker or normal user will ever need. I run a Phenom 2 555 Black Edition with 2 cores unlocked at clocked to 3.8GHZ a long side 2 ATI 6870s (OC to 1ghz each). I will point out that I got lucky, but this board seems to do what it promises. A lot of boards promote core unlocking and fail at keeping the system stable once the extra cores have been activated, let alone achieve an extra 600Mhz for each core with no voltage increase. Probably one of the best things about this board, is that its not the most expensive thing on the market. I really want to see what this is capable of with a 1100T in terms of over clocking.
    If you don't know anything about over clocking, Asus has come to your assistance. Its turbo unlocker will over clock your system by as much as 400mhz if you have a black edition processor. Its safe; it wont melt your hardware. If it sees that it cant sustain the over clock at rising temperatures, then it won't push the processor that far.
    Anyways, just wish I had no issues with RAM.
