It would be great if you could do some OCs with the 8320e

Some of those CPUs behave better than an 8350 when clocked higher (they require less volts)

Good looking mainboard, but it's hard to get worked up about a 990FX chipset board when AMD's new stuff is just around the corner. Maybe it's a little late to the party?

I was using an FX-9590 CPU and Gigabyte 990FX Gaming G1 board recently. It was an extremely solid choice as I'm sure that this ASUS board is. It was very stable.
I gave the system to my son to use, and he loves it.

Friend of mine would love this board as his older gen AMD Sabertooth board seems to have developed some very weird bugs.

Wish they'd bring out a updated 1155 so my 2500k isn't getting outdated, I can see me going AMD for my next upgrade

Maybe not too late at all. I have an 8350 and ZEN would require not only a new CPU and Motherboard but also new RAM too. Seeing as my CPU is handling everything just fine I see no reason to upgrade yet.

3GB RAM as a recommendation?
