My System Specs

Default

NCIX.com - Buy ASUS M5A99X Evo ATX AM3+ DDR3 AMD 990X 3PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 1PCI USB3.0 SATA3 GBLAN Motherboard - ASUS - M5A99X EVO - in Canada

Thats the board I am getting. Historical experience with the EVO line from ASUS is good stability, good reliability, good OC'ing.

And I find that all Gskill ram has worked perfectly in these as well.

just got the new sabertooth about 2 months ago and love it but the theme is a love or hate no inbetween, it has few more features that the evos dont have. the thermal radar is amazing because you can set all fans connected to the board just like in afterburner with profiles.


and what cards are you getting?
