    Even with overclocking your video cards and/or cpu, your 1200 watt platinum psu will be fine and will be well within the power supply's capabilities.
    ....then I'd have the extreme3 as useless :/ waste of money haha

    Guys, crosshair v formula-z, 990fx extreme9 or sabertooth 990fx/gen3 r2.0

    The only reason the sabertooth is in there is for the pcie 3.0 if that would be any good?

    Do all three boards support your cpu?

    Both Asus boards have an 8 +2 Digital Phase Power Design.
    While the number of phases is important, it's equally important to consider which boards have the best quality components.
    You can't just go by the total number of phases.

    Do all of the boards offer a dual x16 video card pci-e setup?
    Does the dual x16 setup still work if you install any additional card(s) in some of the remaining pci-e slots?

    From the video card reviews that I've seen, it looks like pci-e Gen3.0 only provides a 1% - 3% improvement over a Gen2.0 setup.
    Does this apply to all current video cards? I don't know.
    More importantly does this apply to your dual mid range R9 285 setup?
    A web search using: pci-e 2.0 vs 3.0 performance provides some useful links, such as:

    What about the features that each board provides, do any of the boards have some unique features that you might need in the future?

    Another thing to consider, where can you get the best forum support for your new motherboard?
    I've been in the TT forums for almost six years and there is very little Asus support here from forum members.
    There are other forums on the web that have "official" Asus tech support, but I don't know if this also applies to AMD motherboards.

    Have you checked out detailed web reviews for all three motherboards?

    Sorry, my only AMD hardware experience was with a K6-2 setup many years ago.

    I can't dis either of those three boards. But IIRC the 990FX Extreme9 is the only one of 'em designed from the ground up to support that 9590.

    Yes it is. The two Asus boards req'd later BIOS revisions after initial MB production to support the 220W FX-9xxx procs.

    Cheers for the info, what about the 990fx extreme6 that's new and can support it, is that any better? Sorry I just want to make sure I'm buying the best before I spend all the money on one of the boards

    The Extreme9, hands down. And IMO make sure you include for a fan the likes of an Antec SpotCool 80mm Original or the newer 100mm model to direct air over the VRM and chipset area. Since you're water cooling(9590 req'd) this area will need cooled also. Otherwise, where the HS/F would be on top of the proc is considered sufficient for keeping air circulating through and over them. But since you're water cooling I highly recommend a separate and dedicated fan to replace it.
