(i dont think this is really a con. its designed for gamers and 3d designers who need future proof pc in low price range.)

if you want to design a gaming rig with amd processor,simply buy it now and dont forget to thump up my review if it helps

-thanks and regards

Superb mobo

This one is a superb motherboard. The UEFI BIOS and the features like mouse controlled BIOS tweaking makes this an ideal mobo for the price. I was really searching for the "EVO" or "PRO" version of this mobo which has some extra ports and some extras, since those are not available here in flipkart I went for this one.

Pros:-
-Asus AI Suite has features like FanXpert which lets you adjust the fan speed according to your taste
-TurboVevo overclocks the configuration without any effort from the user withot losing stability. (My 1075t went 3.5Ghz and memory timings were dec...

-TurboVevo overclocks the configuration without any effort from the user withot losing stability. (My 1075t went 3.5Ghz and memory timings were decreased)
-2xUSB 3.0
-6xUSB2.0( You will never run out of ports :D)
-Optical audio(I don't have one) and upto 7.1 speakers(I have 2.1)
-CrossfireX(The black one is x4 PCIe in the size of x16, so you can't SLI with this)
-Supports FX series processors.(BTW FX series processors don't perform so well. So stick with a phenom for now and pair it with a FX 2nd gen when it arrives.)
-Upto 32GB 1866Mhz RAM.(I got 8GB)
-No itegrated GPU( Yes It's a pro. Reason to buy a good GPU :D . I got a radeon 6850)

Cons:-
Nothing

Nice Motherboard.

Excellent motherboard

I got this motherboard on 25th June 2013. And I think I made an excellent choice. The UEFI setup interface is very good. It features the AMD 970 and SB950 chipsets. Layout is excellent. Good scope for expansion. And the VRM heatsink is really effective. The Northbridge heatsink is mounted using screws on the backside avoiding the use of normal plastic push pull clips. Got front panel USB ports as well, good USB controller from Asmedia. And it supports all the FX series CPUs till now(well not the 220W 9590) but everything upto 8350.

2*2 GB Kingston 1333 MHz Value RAM
1 TB Western Digital HDD
Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 1 GB DDR5 copper cooler edition(overclocked)
600W Platinum PSU.

I am running the CPU at 3.8 GHz, the NB at 2.8 GHz and the RAM at 1600 MHz 8-9-8-24 absolutely stable. So the board is a solid overclocker as well.

Amazing product for the price range!!!

I had really researched & checked through several motherboards before I proceeded with making this purchase, I almost ordered AsRock Extreme 3 before I laid my eyes on it. A perfect MoBo for all the features you could ask & at an insanely affordable price. Probably the only reason this Mo... (View complete review)
