    Default ASUS Sabertooth 990FX

    Sporting a tough military theme and construction that’s designed to withstand some serious overclocking, the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX comes with great features and an attractive price tag. So we put it on dry ice to see just how high it can go.

    very nice & solid review ! liked the brighter lighting in the pics too !
    this Sabertooth mainboard has quite a bit more than originally thought. &
    definitely would keep it on a very short list.

    Not just the bios. Turbo EVO is spectacular. No more manual overclocking. Best overclocking software by ANY MANUFACTURER.

    Thanks, that is what I had meant on how advanced that was .Most impressive and did not expect to see it on a $200.00 board.
