ASUS has announced a new line up of AMD based motherboards that support the 990FX/990X/970 chipsets and AM3+ CPUs, the first company in the market to provide fully compatible AM3+ motherboards. The new motherboards will be the first on the AMD chipset based platform to support both multi-GPU technologies AMD CrossFireX™ and NVIDIA® SLI™.

The newest addition to the TUF Series motherboards is the SABERTOOTH 990FX, which also has the distinction of being the first AMD-based system in the TUF Series of motherboards. Known for their unrivalled quality and reliability in extreme conditions, the SABERTOOTH 990FX features the use of CeraM!X, an exclusive aerospace-grade cooling material with a 50% larger cooling area that effectively conducts heat away from vital system components.

Also on-board is ASUS' Thermal Radar technology, which consists of ten sensors located on various vital components, giving users the ability to monitor each one individually and automatically adjusts fan speeds to ensure the system maintains a level of high stability without overheating.

TUF motherboards are made using TUF components, comprised of military-certified alloy chokes, solid state capacitors and MOSFETs built to withstand the most extreme usage conditions for greater system stability and longevity. A TUF motherboard built with high-end components ensures quality and tested server-grade reliability and are certified TUF only after a series of extreme stress tests including maximum temperature and humidity tolerance, so users get nothing but the best.

5* Top notch for specs
Reviewed by Iqbal Hussain on 14/04/2012
Bought it in the bundle to make sure that everything would work together and cheaper than buying a ready made pc.

It's a huge bump up from my Pentium 4.
The processor so far is working very very well under 50 degrees, instead of the usual 3.1ghz its automatically on 3.4ghz.

One of the best things about this is the motherboard which is keeping it very cool, loving the extra usb ports and the extras on the board for expansion. The only down side is no IDE connection, but plenty of sata connections 8 in fact.
And BIOS for the motherboard is excellent, allows me to change between pre-configured settings and create my own to get the most of my system.

The ram is good as well, though could do with another 4gb.

Other than it was a very good build for me.
5* Awesome Upgrade
Reviewed by Sy on 14/03/2012
Bought To Upgrade my old dual core rig and wow with a new SSD drive as well this setup is great only slight problem is that motherboard came with only the SLI connector for dual graphics cards and no crossfire bridge so am (im)patiently waiting for one to arrive from ebay :(
