If it had more SATA ports id be saying put this on my xmas wish list. BUT .... 5 ports isnt quite enough for my liking im odd i like a board with at least 8 ports. Now the ASUS 990FX that in my books is %100 geek pron !

MaxPC, put it in the hurt locker with other 990FX boards from the usual suspects (MSI, ASUS, Gigabyte, etc.).  If they want enthusiast cred then folks gotta hurt 'em to see if they stand up!

What I do not understand, is why board manufacturers insist on mixing USB 2 and 3. Go with one or the other, as it makes absolutely no sense to include both as USB 3is backward compatible.

It wouldn't be cost effective to have 10 USB 3.0 ports nor practical because your not likely to have more than 2 usb 3.0 devices.

Blame it on lack of native support. Today's chipsets only support USB 2.0, so that's what we're stuck with. When you see USB 3.0 ports, they're add-ons courtesy of third-party chips from the likes of NEC, Marvell, and others.
