Preparing you for the eight-core Bulldozers.
First let’s take a quick look at the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX motherboard. The TUF look of the motherboard has a certain charm to it, with light green and black colors, not to mention the CeraM!X cooling, which is basically ceramic coating on the heatsinks for better heat dissipation. Outside of that, the Sabertooth 990FX has the now regular suite of features found on most high-end ASUS motherboards, such as the DIGI+VRM design, UEFI BIOS, “Military standard” choke, CAP and MOSFETs.

And now for the ECS A990FXM-A Black Series motherboard, which remains pretty much the same as the Sabertooth 990FX in terms of specifications, except for the Dual Gigabit LAN and Bluetooth module. Obviously ECS have their own UEFI BIOS, but I must say I prefer the user-friendliness of the ASUS BIOS. The ECS board does have a Clear CMOS button on the rear I/O panel which makes it very easy to sort things out should a computer fail to reboot after an overly enthusiastic, but unsuccessful, overclock.
