By Brett on December 9, 2016
First of all I would like to say thank you ASUS for selling such a great board and revisiting this old chip-set to help us get new features.

The board is Great! I just upgraded from a Asrock Extreme 3 r2.0 its a night and day difference between these boards. The Pro 970 Gaming Aura has proven itself to be a great overclocking board. I've only had a it a couple days and i cant stop looking at my build its so great looking and faster then ever before. This board uses a 7+1 power phase not a 8+1 do not let that discourage you from buying this. ASUS did this because they took things from what they know now and applied them to this board you get super clean power from the VRM and the VRM stay pretty cold depending on what your using for cooling the board.

The look of this board is great and can only really be appreciated at night in person. I took a few pictures so i could show off my new components the 1070 SC from EVGA compliments this really good. I cant wait for AMD ZEN to come out i will be buying ASUS again no doubt about that. If you are looking for a cheaper build and like AMD CPU’s then look no further you wont be mad about the choice. If you have a AMD FX 9590 this I will work just make sure you have a nice big case with lots of air! You will need to keep everything cold not just the CPU. I installed all the aus programs from the website at 1st but deleted about 90% of them as I don’t really need them for overclocking or webstorage. If you don’t want to BIOS Overclock Asus TurboV will let you OC your CPU one core at a time if you want plus its safe if it fails you will default to last saved OC or stock if you have not saved a new OC profile. I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I’am have fun!

3.0 out of 5 stars Seller tried to cover minor damage on it, but the mobo itself is great.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 1, 2015
I used this motherboard in combination with FX 8120, FX 8150, FX 8320 and FX 8350 to build 4 PC's until now. I built the first one 3 years ago (not R2.0 but same mobo) and it still runs great after the owner used it to play World of Warcraft 10 to 20 hours daily. None of the users reported any problems with those PC's. Nice UEFI on it easy to flash.

Basically I had no issues with this motherboard until I bought it from Amazon.
The motherboard came with the large heatsink detached from the motherboard with 2 broken screws carefully hidden under it. As I purchased this MOBO for myself I didn't send it back for replacement (I waited almos 2 weeks for it to arrive in the first place) just used a couple of zip ties to attach the heatsink to the mobo. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and have had no issues with it just giving it an okay rating because the damage was clearly seen by the seller and he tried to cover it hoping he would find a guy like me who wouldn't send it back and succeeded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gutes Mainbord
Reviewed in Germany on July 2, 2017
Ich möchte all denen einen Tipp schreiben,die Probleme haben bei diesem Mainbord,die Permanente Stromversorgung der USB abzustellen(Schalten).
Mit anderen Worten,selbst bei Heruntergefahrenen Computer stehen die USB unter Strom und lassen die verschiedenen angeschlossenen Geräte wie Maus oder Ledleiste ect. weiter leuchten.
Gehe wie folgt vor: beim Booten - F2 (BIOS) -- Button ( Erweitert ),-- skrolle auf (APM),-- stelle bei ( ErP Ready) von Deaktiviert (ist Standard Einstellung) auf Aktiviert,-- F10 ( Speichern und zurücksetzen) -- Ja ....der Computer ,wird neu Gebootet und beim nächsten Herunterfahren werden die USB Anschlüsse mit abgeschaltet.
Die Funktion (Energiespraren) im Windosprogramm (Win 7 Ultimate) funktioniert nicht um die USB Abzuschalten....
