I have had my ASUS M5A99X for about 4 months now, and I have to say, it has been brilliant. For starters, the expandability that it gives you is unparalleled, 2 USB 3.0 ports with a header for front ports, endless USB 1.1/2.0 ports, eSATA, Power eSATA, PS/2 port, 8 Channel HD sound, S/PDIF out, SATA-III (up to 6Gbps transfer rate), Gigabit LAN, Firewire and more that makes this a winner. Its a Full-ATX board, so it won't go into a Micro-ATX or ITX case, so check your case size!

It overclocks like a champ on my Phenom II X4 960T - 3 GHz, 6 MB L3 Cache, AM3 Socket - Black Edition (HD96ZTWFGRBOX) HD96ZTWFGRBOX (Processors), running 4Ghz on 6 cores (I unlocked it from 4 cores, there's around a 30-50% success rate for unlocking, so don't buy it purely because you aim to have 6 stable cores, you could get a less stable chip, however, its still a great 4 core!). More info here: [...] . The Graphical UEFI BIOS makes modifying settings and creating profiles a breeze. SATA ports give me around 500MBps transfer rate on my Crucial M4 SSD :)

I'd thoroughly recommend this for amateur builders and gamers alike, myself being the latter, driving three screens with a MSI R6850 in Eyefinity (ironically, the motherboard came with a SLI bridge, damn you NVIDIA, I don't need it!) Get one while they're still at a discount!

I'd been checking out specifications for the motherboard I would use in my new desktop PC build and decided on this board from Asus.

The board supports all the latest CPU chips and has lots of great features, including the newer UEFI (Windows style) BIOS which makes it very easy to set up the motherboard (the BIOS has an 'easy' or 'advanced' option. The 'easy' option for setting up the BIOS uses point and click with your mouse and is very easy to use. If you want to delve deeper into the settings, the 'advanced' option offers lots of settings to tweak and adjust).

The motherboard is very easy to overclock, either directly from one setting in the BIOS, or with Asus's own utility suite of programs that you can download (free) from their support site. The motherboard comes with the usual manual and drivers disk, but as is always recommended, download and use the very latest drivers from Asus own support site.

The motherboard also includes high quality sound... hook it up to your surround system and enjoy great high quality (Dolby/DTS etc.) surround for your games and films. There's lots of other functions built in like USB2/USB3 support ... all the stuff that is needed for a modern desktop PC.

Like all the recent products I've purchased from Amazon to build my new PC, this motherboard was a good price and delivery was very fast. Next time I'll be checking out Amazon for my stuff FIRST, before I check the other sites :-)

Very good board. The MemOK function for memory compatability came in very useful. Keeps its self cool easily 27 degrees C in my case. New bios style is quite intuitive.

Great motherboard, I bought this as an upgrade to my Asus M4a88TD-M evo as I wanted to be able to upgrade to an SLI setup and this seems like a good priced motherboard to do so.
Initially I ordered the Asus M5A97 PRO only to find out it didn't support SLI, it only supported Crossfire, Amazon were really helpful in returning my product. Don't buy the other one unless you have ATI cards; but this motherboard gives you the ability to switch between the two card types even in multi-GPU setups.

Bought a new processor as well, got the AMD fx-8120, an AM3+ processor, and it worked straight away. I still upgraded the bios of the motherboard to "BIOS 0901" and still worked fine, looks as if there's a new BIOS been released recently "BIOS 1102" but from reading other reviews it seems a bad idea to upgrade bios unless something goes wrong with my setup.

The latest pack of utilities on the asus download page gives you over-clocking utilities, fan control utilities & sensory information:

Easily over-clocked my system using TurboV EVO, just a click of a button, analysed my computer, over-clocked CPU to 3.9Ghz and everything is stable.
Used EPU to manage my fan speeds, along with Fan Xpert. Set EPU mode to AUTO, and in fan Xpert changed my Chassis fan to silent setting, computer is very quiet until I start gaming, then all fans come on when necessary; without the settings the computer fans can become very noisy even if your computer is on idle; worth setting the utilities up.

OK my motherboard is only 2 weeks old but I would hope it will last for many years, my last Asus motherboard was reliable so I'd imagine I will have no problems with this one.

Disappointed to find that red cpu LED displayed - wouldn't post/ boot up. Tried everything. New cpu, new memory. Finally bought psu tester from Amazon and discovered my ocz psu had developed a high power good signal over 990ms (many new motherboards wont post with this sort of delay). So new psu required too!
