The manufacturer commented on the review below
PROS:
This is the best motherboard for the Socket AM3+ platform. It performs great and now with the latest Bios Revision, it's performs even better.

CONS:
Asus's box has Advertisement stating this motherboard was designed for the AMD FX series of CPU's. My issue is my AMD FX-8120 CPU did not work when I plugged it in and I was forced to waste my money on another CPU just to update the mobo's bios so it can accept my AMD FX-8120.

My only issue was the FACT Bulldozer does not work on this motherboard without a BIOS UPDATE. So I find it completely unfair that the buyer is forced to either pay for an updated BIOS CHIP which ASUS will send to you for a price and/or buy an original AMD Phenom II CPU just to update the bios before you can plug in a Bulldozer based CPU.

This is an extra cost to the purchaser of the motherboard which you should not have to pay. The BOX clearly states that it fully supports Socket AM3+ 8-Core Bulldozer AMD FX CPU's so it SHOULD" support them right out of the BOX. At the very least the company could have allowed the user to enter the BIOS so you can update it or set this up in a way where all you would have to do is plug in a USB flash drive and let the motherboard update itself automatically.

ASUS is not the only culprit in regards to this MASSIVE ISSUE. Companies such as Gigabyte and MSI are also to blame.

So what I was forced to do is buy a cheap Socket AM3 Athlon II just to update the bios, then remove it and plug in my Bulldozer. Now what do I do with the Athlon II? Asus should buy it from me at full retail cost.

This was my 2nd time this happend to me and this will be the last time I buy a motherboard that requires another CPU just to update the Bios. Hopefully ASUS will resolve this ASAP so others won't suffer with this issue.

Dear Valued Customer(s),

We apologize for the issue you had with the motherboard not having the latest BIOS to support new AM3+ CPU's.

Can you look on the side of a motherboard that has a long bar code sticker and look at the last four digits of that code This is the BIOS version that the motherboard was shipped with. It will tell you if the motherboard needs a new BIOS update to support the your AM3+ CPU or there's another problem that is preventing it from POST. You may go here http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/Crosshair_V_Formula/#CPUS to identify whether your CPU will require an updated BIOS.

Most new Crosshair V Formula motherboards sold on the market today come with BIOS to support AM3+ CPU's. If in the event that your BIOS must be updated, you can bring the motherboard to a local computer shop and pay a small fee to have them update it for you, or purchase a BIOS chip with the latest BIOS from our eStore (http://estore.asus.com), or RMA the motherboard to us to perform the update. To RMA the motherboard, please use the following form at: http://vip.asus.com/eservice/usa_rmaserv.aspx or call 1-812-282-2787.

For support information, please visit http://support.asus.com. For service, visit http://service.asus.com.

This motherboard used to have a BIOS issue you could only change by buying a phenom II and upgrading the BIOS. I found an upgrade on the ASUS website.

Asus does know how to make a good motherboard, and this no exception. Quality equipment here all right. Good features, nice looks, and runs well.

However, it isn't without it's faults. This board can be extremely picky about the kind of RAM you want to use, so I'd advise you to check the DRAM qualified vendor's list before you use or purchase RAM. If you don't, it'll be hit or miss, and the board might not POST. This happened with me, and the board wouldn't work until I reseated the CPU and reset the CMOS. The onboard Asmedia Controller is picky, and I'd recommend you disable it in the BIOS, which, by the way, is excellent, and fairly user friendly. I was able to easily clock my DDR3-1600 RAM up to that speed, as the SPD was detected at 1333 at first.

I'm using a Phenom II X4 955 which works well, but as I'm still using the stock cooler, runs a little hot. ~45C idle, 65C high load. Regardless, the board works when it's configured well, and if you're using the correct kind of RAM, and you're a tad lucky. But as for how the board performs, it's fantastic.

Recommended for the enthusiast.

I ordered the ASUS Corsshair V 990FX motherboard for a new computer build. Just for reference, I'm using a AMD Hex Core 1100T (3.3 Ghz) processor. 16gb Corsair Vengeance Blue 1600mHZ RAM. EVGA 570 GTX HD video card. 120Gb Corsair GT (red) SSD drive. 1 TB Western DIgital Black Caviar HDD.

This motherboard is very good quality and was manufactured using high quality components. I'm happy with the layout and had no space issues when installing the peripherals. One thing that I really like about this motherboard is the on board LED's that indicate whether or not the components (RAM, video card, CPU, LAN connection, etc.) are being recognized. This takes away the guesswork of troubleshooting potentially faulty components, something that can be extremely frustrating when the computer doesn't start up on the first attempt and you don't know which component might be faulty. Fortunately, this system loaded the first time I fired it up and I didn't have any major issues.

The BIOS menu is very user friendly and offers a host of overclocking options. I'm not really into overclocking since it can shorten the life of the components, but I highly recommend this motherboard to those who do want to overclock. The only option I changed was adjusting the RAM speed to 1600mHZ instead of the default 1333mHZ. I might tinker with the overclocking options later, but for now everything is working well. The system is stable and I'm really pleased with this motherboard. The SATA 3.0 components are all lightning fast. It's also an ideal motherboard if you want to use multiple video cards. The Corsshair V supports up to three PCIE 2.0 video cards. Also, the onboard HD audio means that you don't necessarily need a separate video card.

I don't do the over clocking thing for me the benefit risk ratio isn't working. in other words what benefit you get from risking screwing up your computer isn't enough to be justified. Having said that The Asus Crosshair V motherboard is breeze to install and configure. Obviously I'm not an expert at computers and I have to admit I was a little apprehensive upon reading all the attributes of this thing but I had no problem 2 hours after receiving it in the mail having already gotten my Phenom II X6 core CPU I was installing Windows 7 ultimate beginning to setup what is now my world. I'm a disabled Veteran and don't really go any where so this is my virtual world I am very happy I went this way.
