Unboxing : ASUS M5A97 AM3+ Motherboard

Today we’re un boxing the all new Asus M5a97 Am3+ Motherboard. Overall it seems to be another rock solid motherboard from asus that give you the power to overclock or run it as it stands. The thing that stand out the most with this board is the eufi bios mainly because it’s so easy to use and it’s so new looking. This motherboard seems to be running great with my current am3 processor and I haven’t had any issues with it so far. Pros Nice design plenty of room between pci express slots. EUFI bios is a big plus Great power saving options Solid and stable so far Nice layout. Cons Q-shield could have been padded Only 2 sata cables No cheat connector for the case power connectors.

    Is it possible for me to fit in an air cooled CPU heat sink eg. a coolermaster hyper 212 or something similar if I already have all 4 RAM slots occupied? will it fit without touching the RAM sticks?

    Currently running a 1055t but can run a newer bulldozer with this board. Bios are easy to use and overclock, had mine since last year and it is brilliant

    Admittedly he was preaching something with a rather radical approach but a gentle movement of the arm can, when recorded on a multimeter, produce well over 600 volts. A static shock that can be felt/heard is in excess of 10,000 volts, often around 30,000+. That said, I couldn’t care less about anything that belongs to you. We’ve never met and I don’t benefit from anything that you possess.
