Nothing bad to say about this motherboard, does everything it says.
Good points are:
-It has an AM3+ socket for the CPU which will work with any of the bulldozer processors (e.g. amd fx6200 and fx8350).
-It has 4 slots for RAM, which means you can have up to 16gb of ram, although i've got 8gb and never used all of that.
-It has USB 3.0 at the back of the motherboard, meaning faster data transfer on usb 3.0 enabled devices.
-It comes with a disk with software which can monitor your cpu and motherboard temperatures, which is useful if you want to do benchmarks etc.
-under £50 and has all the above features, which is brilliant!

Bad points are:
-Nothing at the price it is. There are better motherboards out there which have enough slots for 2 or 3 graphics cards and stuff but those cost £150, which is way above my price range and many other people's!

This is a great motherboard which has everything a computer needs to have, don't hesitate on buying this if your CPU had an AM3+ socket!

Style Name: SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 Verified Purchase
I recently built a new gaming rig whereby for price i compromised and originally had the Gigabyte motherboard which turned out to be very dissapointing and just failed to work (might have been just the odd one but enough to put me off it completely).

So why did I choose this board?

Build Quality:
- Robust.
- Decent size and great finishing.
- Nothing feels cheap and nasty - everything screams QUALITY.

Design and Finish:
- I love how the Sata ports are positioned, slightly raised and angled so that the cables connect in neatly but away from the board. Each Sata port has a seperate casing :)
- The general layout of this motherboards in terms of connections are well thoughtout and so helpful for custom builders.
- Enough space between the RAM slots and the CPU to add a large cpu cooler/water cooler with no struggles.

Features
- Plenty of USB 3.0 and even more USB 2.0 ports - if your case supports USB 3.0 connection this can easily be added to the motherboard.
- Future proof support windows 8.1 and SSD its definately worth investing in.
- P.O.S.T. with LED indicator (green/red) and beep sound. Basic I know but you don't realise how many other motherboards skimp on the LED indication.
- Excellent realtek sound card (I have creative XiFi soundcard but no need for it) fantasic sound options.

Bios
- Excellent GUI and boot logo it definately looks the part of being 'TUF'
- Easy to use GUI which has three default settings for you system performance, simply click on the desired option and it will reboot. Also very quick, no lags.
- Advanced option for those that wish to overclock and tinker with the settings.
- Straight forward, no nonsense flash bios and updates via usb.

Style Name: M5A97 LE R2.0 Verified Purchase
Let's face it, there is no point in buying a motherboard with an on-board graphics chip. You will want to buy a PCIe VGA so just get the best featured mobo you can for the available cash. I looked at the market and concluded that this one had the lot. It handles AMD FX processors up to 8 cores/140W and the latest 32nm AM3+ technology (I went for the budget FX4100). It also supports SATA III 6Gb/s and USB3.0 and it has an 8-channel Audio chip on-board. Pretty impressive for a £65 mobo. Memory is not an issue either with 4 DIMM slots totalling 32Gbytes and it runs Windows 8 without a hitch. The card is equipped with connections for a CPU fan and up to three chassis fans - all 4-pin PWM - so you can have a whisper-quiet system if you use Noctua PWM fans.

The one detraction is the awful Asus utility - AI Suite II - this is actually a collection of utilities that you can use to tune system performance. It has major problems with stability and one of the utilities (Network iControl) will cripple your on-board Ethernet performance unless you remove it. Fortunately, you can select which utilities to activate - I have just Fan Control and System Information running.

I have given it 5 stars despite the AI Suite II problems because the card itself is fast and cool and quiet and the utility is just a waste of two days time - but now you know that, you will not have that problem...

This mobo was central to my budget home built music PC as for the price, it is a good performer with good specs. Asus have a good reputation for motherboards and this one is no exception. I was also pleasantly surprised that the RAM limit was not 8GB as I was led to believe but 32GB, which is brilliant. Although i5 and i7 CPU's are recommended for music recording, they tend to be more expensive and for the sort of music I intend to do are not strictly necessary, and the AMD Phenom II 4core black CPU I installed was about £100 cheaper than the Intel alternative. The extra cash saved was used to buy a SSD which has improved loading speeds considerably. With 10 x USB 2.0 ports and 2 x USB 3.0 ports this board can deal with all my peripherals without having to buy an additional USB expander. The USB 3.0 ports should deal with any future expansions. The six SATA ports are also good, although once an SSD, DVD drive and a couple of HDD's are installed it only leaves 2 ports free for future use. My only criticism is that the SATA ports are 3GBs instead of the faster 6GBs, but this is a mid-range board and the difference in speed would be hard to notice. The 4 expansion ports are okay and the on board sound and graphics are good and, as a music PC doesn't require state of the art graphics or sound (we use an external audio interface) upgrades are not necessary, unless you want to play top rate games. All in all a great motherboard for the money which has enabled me to build a well specified music PC for under £500.
