Question  Compatibility by Dale

Will this work with an FX 9590?

Hello Dale, The FX 9590 is compatible with this motherboard. Please be aware the manufacturer has left a note on their website to do with using those items together. "Due to the high TDP, please be noted there are limitations while using this CPU(i.e. special thermal required..)"

Will this be compatable with my phenom II X6 1090T and nvidia gtx970, 4x2gb Samsung PC3-10600U-09-10-B0 ram? Is this the best board for this setup?

Answer by shaund on Tuesday, March 8, 2016
Hi David,

This board will be compatible with everything you have listed, if you are looking for a more modern Motherboard with things like an M.2 SSD socket I would recommend this one instead: Gigabyte GA-990FX-Gaming

Warranty by keiranc1

How long is the warranty through Aria, and how long is the warranty from manufacturer?
Many thanks

Response by shaund
Hi Keiran,

Aria holds a 1 year warranty on products, after that the warranty would lie with Asus themselves, in this case, the remaining 4 years.
