For months now I've been on the lookout for a crossfire board and naturally I turned to what everyone calls the best. I looked up a few ASUS boards and prices, then looked up the online reviews of this particular piece of hardware and decided to put my money where my mouth is.

When it arrived it was well packaged with lots of "air bags" - literally, bags full of air - to prevent any damage(better than bubble wrap I guess)an I was eager to open it and get it going.

When you first open the front of the box(flip panel), it strikes you with all this colour and images on the reverse side, describing the main features of this and what sets it apart from the rest. Then moving down you see the board itself, handy for putting up on window shelves at PC shops, pretty useless for the average enthusiast as pretty packaging doesn't necessarily mean good performance.

This board comes with so many features to make overclocking easier it may actually make it boring for some of us(though I'm not that advanced yet). The first thing I did when I booted up was to try all the automatic overclocking features. You get software and hardware with both achieving a mild to moderate overclock(in simple terms, you can save a few quid on a CPU and still get higher level performance). My 965 was pushed to about 3.65 via BIOS and 3.78 via TurboV's auto tuning feature.

What I really liked about this board is the flexibility it provides people. Even if you don't know how to open your e-mail account, you can get a 150 to 500MHz OC out of this board. All stable and would probably run off the stock cooler(though I would advise against that).

A very stable, very accomplished motherboard, with so many O/C options and features you'll be hard pressed to find a better feature-rich stable motherboard. eSATA and USB3 work billiantly; I was shocked how fast you can transfer gigabytes of data to an eSATA enclosure (70MB/s with an old(!) SATA1 hdd for example). The BIOS can be a little daunting, but very little needs to be fiddled with if you are unsure - the auto settings allow for a very stable system, if not optimized. The component choice on the motherboard is impressive; if you check out the power phase design for example, you'll see why compared to normal motherboards. Although I at first had some reservations over memory compatibility for this motherboard, if you stick to the QVL (qualified vendor list) for memory from Asus, memory isn't an issue. Northbridge heatsink issues for some batches of this motherboard have been reported (some standoffs being too tall allowing no contact with the NB heatsink); my NB does run warmer than the other components (5*C more than the SB), but it seems acceptable at load, and causes no stability issue - later models should have the issue fixed anyway. Works out of the box (no BIOS update required) with an 1100T processor.

Once again ASUS prove to be at the very top of their game with this hardware, and I have no problem suggesting this to anyone who wants *the best* AMD board their computer can have.

the motherboard is 6 stars when is working. after 13 months of working without an issue, one day while i was working it failed. it made a weird sound and then a horrible smell came out of the side. the motherboard coating somehow failed. even though the motherboard is covered by 3 year warranty by the manufacturer, it really isn't. i spend 160 pounds at the time for this motherboard and asus blamed me for the failure of it. keep in mind that i never used the overclock function that it has.

at the end of the day i would recommend this only if you buy the 3 year extended warranty offered by amazon, since after the first year nothing will be covered from asus even if it is "under warranty"

Honestly, this motherboard is a god send

Ok ok, I'll be honest, the colours won me over from the start, goes with my black NZXT phantom a treat :)

got this board with the logical AMD 1090t, also got some corsair vengeance 2x4gb sticks 1600mhz 9-9-9-24, worked straight away (did have to up the mhz from 1333 to 1600 in the Bios)

I originally had 4gb of Dominator 9-9-9-24 1.8v 1600, but unfortunately due to the voltage it kept causing blue screens.

One of the great featues of this motherboard is the error lighting, it'll tell you which hardware component is causing the problems, took me 2 seconds to locate an issue with the memory modules. It was my fault, I hadn't put them in properly!

For crossfire you've got a nice gap between the 2 x16 slots, so plenty of room to breath. The onboard sound works a treat with my AX720's with an optical cable port. The 6gbps sata ports are a very nice feature, it means you can really get the most out of your solid state drives.

The layout of the board is fantastic for anyone with a good cable management case. Ample fan connectors, the NZXT phantom comes with a fan controller, but I have the second fan for my Hyper 212+ and there's a very handy fan plugin for it to keep your case tidy.

Overclocking is a pleasure on this board, haven't used the ROG feature yet but it looks nice. But the bios layout is great, very user friendly if you know what you're looking at.

One slight problem! I currently have a hyper 212+ and I'd struggle to fit a second ram set in, I think I probably could but it'd be a squeeze.
