1. HyperFormance™ - Optimized Game Responsiveness:

Game responsiveness is all about how fast your eye → brain → mouse click → game response behaves. When interacting with your computer, the responsiveness is a key factor to your productivity and overall systems experience. When it comes to playing games, especially fast moving ones like First Person Shooters, responsiveness becomes critical for both mastering the game and enjoying and immersive experience.

HyperFormance intelligently removes redundant rendering tasks within the graphics pipeline, the CPU-GPU-Display system.

  • Boosts responsiveness and FPS of any game
  • Improves gaming frame rates 30-70%
  • Increases Vsync frame rates - 120 FPS+
  • Sharpens visual quality without tearing
  • Works seamlessly with hundreds of games

2. Virtual Vsync™ - Resolve the Everlasting Debate Between Quality and Performance:

Lucid's Virtual Vsync technology takes visual quality and performance to the next level. A proprietary solution for Virtu Universal and Virtu MVP, Virtual Vsync enables games to run at any FPS, with no image tearing, stuttering, lags and latency artifacts.

  • Enhanced performance - when system has dGPU and iGPU
  • Unlimited frame rates - beyond traditional in-game Vsync
  • Flawless visual quality without tearing
  • Up to 250% better responsiveness vs. standard Vsync

3 out of 5 eggsCaution - Digital audio poor on these boards

Pros: Does mostly what a motherboard should...

Cons: Huge con is that the digital out is NOT 5.1! unbelievable! Since I got this as a home theater PC you can imagine the pain I am going through. Now have to buy a separate audio card just to get digital audio (something my 7 year old mother board was doing fine till it died).

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

Thank you for purchase and review.
For the audio digital 5.1, please visit link below for setting.
However, it's required playback software (Power DVD 10 or later).

5 out of 5 eggsgreat board with replacement

Pros: First board had a broken heatsink, second board was fine and does everything I expected it to do. AS long as you get a good one of the bat, you should not have any problems.

Cons: took 2 boards to get a good one

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Had the tech I wanted at a decent price

Cons: Too bad its complete garbage.

Other Thoughts: Started with intermittent reboots.

PCI express slot 1 died, had to move gpu to slot 2. no sli I for me... ever.

DDR slot a2 died, then DDR slot b1 died. Can only use one stick of ram in slot a1.

USB 3.0 slots recognized 3.0 devices twice in life of board. When I plug in a 3.0 drive it doesnt recognize them. Nothing. Dead.

Can not plug in more than one internal hard drive without booting into error codes, no matter what configuration I try.

Ive tried replacing the power supply, the memory and hard drives. None were at fault, it was this garbage board.

Never over clocked anything. I recommend customers avoid ALL asrock motherboards. I never had ANY problems with ASUS, MSI or gigabyte. Just spend the extra and get a better brand. Buy this board if you like error codes, crashes, random restarts and garbage reliability. Would not take a new replacement if one was given. It would go in the trash where it belongs, not worth the trouble.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We will be more than happy to replace the mainboard if it’s malfunctioned.

1 out of 5 eggsCPU multiplier is locked at 35 or less

Pros: MoBo has served me great when I didn't try to overclock

Cons: I have an i5 2500k and recently i tried to overclock the CPU multiplier i found is locked to a max of 35 in the bios. After Googling I have found that many people have had this issue with this MoBo.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Mainboard has overclocking function. However, overclocking could damage the components as well as mainboard which depend on user’s knowledge, experience and adopted components.

Please turn the power off, clear the CMOS.
Load the BIOS default.
Try replicating the issue with multiplier.

Pros: Replaced a similar Asus board that fried (due to my own mistake). Same or better performance with this board, no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

Pros: Reasonably priced
One of the few available LGA 1155 boards
Easy setup

Cons: My system got the "blue screen of death" more than once while trying to update system drivers from the DVD so I had to download them from ASRock's & Intel's websites and manually update them.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this MB as a replacement for an ASUS P8Z77-V LE which went south & still wouldn't work after an RMA from ASUS. My system immediately posted and I was able to set the bios and get things running without having to do a clean OS install. I had to reactivate Windows, but all all my programs worked fine and my data was readily accessible.

3 out of 5 eggsFollow up on Extreme4 RMA

Pros: I finally got my board back from RMA. It took 8 days. Wait, is this a pro?

The new board is flawless, so far, that got them an egg back. I hope it stays that way.

Cons: RMA took 8 days with me paying $45 for two day shipping...

Other Thoughts: I'm not reviewing the product so much as I am ASRock's RMA policy. I would have been more than happy to pay them to ship me the board first & then return the failed one. Being down for 8 days put me a week behind on school as well as removed the one place in my home I come to unwind. I understand the "first world problem" sound of this review but that doesn't mean it's wrong.

Unless ASRock updates this RMA policy before my next upgrade I will not be able to purchase another of their components. That would be a shame.

The Pro3 board I bought back in 2012 is still running strong. I built my youngest kid a system with that board when I upgraded. ASRock makes great products. I don't hold them accountable for my recent board failure. I just have to plan for those failures in the future. If I can get more piece of mind by spending a little more money, so be it.

5 out of 5 eggsGood enough to buy another

Pros: Decent features
Easy to Use BIOS

Cons: Costs money

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great board. I just bought a 2nd one to replace a non-Intel RAID board I had in 1155 socket. It's efficient with a 2nd gen I7, so this one will run at actual top speeds on my 3rd gen I7. I need the intel RAID functionality for futureproofing migrations of my RAID 1 mirror. Learned that lesson the hard and easy way. RAID 0/1/5/10 will Migrate Intel Chipsets with the onboard controller actually quite easily, so as long as I stay Intel-based RAID, I have an upgrade path without needing a backup and rebuild of my RAID.

4 out of 5 eggsMother

Pros: First board had some issues but RMA and the second board works great. First time purchasing a ASRock Motherboard and I had some concerns but none now

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Would purchase again from ASRock, I always purchased Asus motherboards but seems the quality has gone down a step or two so I broke away from Asus and seems I will be buying ASRock in the future
