"We're looking at two mainstream AMD motherboards from ASUS: the M5A97 EVO and the M5A99X EVO. They're very similar in their features and capabilities, but do have some distinct differences that can appeal to a good range of needs. Both come with fantastic prices and both come with deceptively strong overclocking abilities. How about 4.7GHz on a $120 board?"

"Released on May 31st by ASUS, the M5A97 EVO is a new AM3+ motherboard, boasting support for AMD's upcoming AM3+ CPUs, as well, as current AM3 Phenom II CPUs. Sporting the now familiar black and blue color scheme from ASUS, the M5A97 EVO seeks, like its brethern, to turn the competition black and blue too."
"To sum it up this board has actually surpassed my expectations. For a board to give this type of performance in its price range is pretty amazing. Asus have once again demonstrated why they dominate the motherboard market."

"With support for the new FX series of AMD processors along with being part of the new 900 series chipsets, this could be a really great option for people who want to get in on the AMD FX fun without breaking the bank. This looks to be very much a board that represents what the AMD platform is all about with some strong features and a really aggressive price tag."
5 PC Perspective
"The Crosshair V is without question the most impressive AM3+ board I have worked with to date. Installation was flawless, BIOS support was mature and quick, and the overwhelming amount of features integrated into this board is staggering."

"Both ASUS M5A97 EVO and ASUS M5A99X EVO offer all you may need to build a solid gaming rig or a decent workhorse. It's nice that things like CPU VRMs with lots of phases, high-quality circuitry and diverse interfaces have become a standard in the mid-end range."
