    Awesome Motherboard for the Price, November 1, 2011

    I build custom PC’s as a side gig and when it came time to build myself a new PC, I had a ton of motherboard to look at that Ive used in the past. Some of them I have had driver issues with, some lack a USB 3.0 header on the motherboard, etc. They all worked find but it was just little nit picky things that were annoying. I wasnt completely satisfied with the ones that I had used in the past Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 Socket AM3 AMD 890GX/SB850 6 SATA USB 3.0 ATX Motherboard, ASUS Socket AM3/AMD 880G/USB3.0/Hybrid CrossFireX/A&V&GbE/Micro ATX Motherboard s M4A88T-M/USB3, ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 – AM3 – AMD 880G – DDR3 – USB 3.0 SATA 6 Gb/s – ATX Motherboard so I decided to give this one a shot. I have to say I was very impressed. It had everything that I was looking for.

    I love the graphical BIOS. Its not really a functionality difference but it does look nice. The USB 3.0 header on the board is nice so you dont have to route it through to the back side of the case and take up one of your slots on the back. It has SATA 6 gbps. It has 8 sata connections (I didnt realize that when I ordered it so that was a pleasant surprise). Will run AMD’s new bulldozer processors and 2133 mhz DDR3.

    For the money, I would say that this is second to none. It is comparable to the republic of gamers mobo but costs quite less. You really cant go wrong with Asus period.

    If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the comments section.

    Not much to say beyond “excellent”! The most impressive quality is the headroom for upgrade – up to 32Mb RAM and support for upcoming Phenom x8 processors. Also, one should take into consideration the energy management capabilities. In sum, the new M5A99x Evo is worth the amount I spent in the purchase.

    Good motherboard for a lackluster platform, October 25, 2011

    This review is from: ASUS M5A99X Evo – AM3+ – 990X – SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 – ATX DDR3 2133 Motherboards (Personal Computers)

    I picked one of these up for my desktop system after my old Socket 775 motherboard started to go out. I planned to use a AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition 3.2GHz CPU for a few months, and then switch to a AMD FX 8120 8-Core Processor 3.1 after the price came down a bit.

    This is the second Socket AM3+ motherboard I tried. The first one was a 990FX board from a different manufacturer that had some serious Windows 7 crashing issues. I was able to return it and decided to go with an Asus board, as I have had very good luck with Asus products in the past. I don’t run SLI, so I decided a 990X board would be perfectly adequate.

    This motherboard works very well but not flawlessly. I have 2 Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB hard drives that worked well in RAID0 on my old motherboard with an ICH10R southbridge. With this motherboard, I get random freezes in Windows 7 with these drives in RAID0. When I use the drives separately, ie, not RAIDed, everything runs smoothly. I’ve tried about 6 different Windows installs with various configurations of the RAID controller and consistently get the random freezing, so I have to assume that it’s an issue with the SB950 southbridge’s RAID controller.

    Everything else works smoothly. The EFI BIOS is great, and makes it very easy to configure the many features of this board. Boot times are pretty quick. I’m currently running it with the aforementioned Phenom II 955, 8GB of Mushkin Redline DDR3 1866MHZ 9-10-9-27 memory and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU cooler.

    All in all, I’m pleased with the motherboard itself.

    I’m less pleased with the AM3/AM3+ platform. The heat generated by the Phenom II CPU is astounding compared to my old Core 2 Quad, and it looks like at least the initial batch of Bulldozer CPUs are even worse in that regard. I can raise the ambient temperature of my office about 3-4 degrees F in an hour or two of gaming. I’m considering returning the board and going with Sandy Bridge instead. But no stars taken away from the review for this, as it’s not an issue with the motherboard itself.
