3 out of 5 eggsGreat when it works.

Pros: Lots of room for expansion, RAID support, Dual GLAN, ESATA, space for my tri-SLI GTX 260s. Great board.

Cons: Had two of these in the past year. One had a bad DDR3 slot, and the other caught fire. (No overclockin') Thankfully looks like none of my other components were damaged, but quality control goes a long way.

Other Thoughts: Buy the extended warranty on this!

Only gave it the three eggs for reliability. Otherwise, it's great.

4 out of 5 eggssecond time work great

Pros: plenty of room for upgrades, with this board it works for old tech PC, as well as newer tech, by that i mean you can have the flat cable floppy and HD or the new sata connection or Raid, 20 pin or 24pin connection

Cons: this was as more my fault, than the board i think, but my first board i fried because i installed software to overclock my video cards (two 5770's that refused to work right)

4 out of 5 eggsMixed bag

Pros: This dood advised the owner to purchase from NewEgg, and I then built the system for him.

Slot Spacing

Quad-SLI support

Homegrown super-computer potential, thanks to space and support for up to 3 Tesla GPU compute boards.

No interference between the RAM slots and the vid card, and all the drive headers are turned towards the edge, so big graphics cards don't hit those either.

Flexible connection headers all over the place: P4 power can be 4-pin or 8; Main power can be either 20- or 24-pin; CPU fan header handles both 3- and 4-pin; and there's something else that escapes memory.

Cons: Floppy header, if you need it, like for RAID in XP, is in a dumb place near the back-bottom corner. ('Back' meaning relative to the whole case.)

No LED on the mobo itself to indicate power.

The full manual is on the disk, not hard-copy, so you'd better be familiar with rigging a BIOS by yourself before first boot, or have a second computer nearby.

Alone, those are "quirks". But the board lost an egg because of the following: A constellation of wee circuit bits inhabits the space on the back side where an Intel-standard back plate might have to rest for a big cooler. They effectively block such a plate from sitting level on the board. They can be seen in NewEgg's own pic just to the bottom-right of the built in metal plate behind the socket.

Also, since this was for a performance build with 4x HDD's in RAID, I encountered a resource issue with the ATA channels. See in "Other thoughts" at the ##.

Other Thoughts: Voltage droop issues have been somewhat addressed on the newest revisions, and/or with a BIOS update. The various 'easy' or 'automatic' performance settings are inscrutable, but I had no intention of overclocking.

## With all SATA ports populated, (4 HDDs, 1 optical combo drive, and 1 eSATA hooked up,) the IDE port was inactive. A supplemental storage HDD was attached there, and was never seen by the system. It took quite a bit of research and one wild guess to discover that the optical drive occupied all the logical space for IDE, even tho it's attached by SATA, as it runs in IDE mode, thereby overriding the IDE channel's ability to see another drive on the regular old IDE connector. This was very frustrating, and not referred to anywhere in the documentation.

Almost gave only 3 eggs, not sure if I'm being generous with 4.

2 out of 5 eggsNot worth saving a few bucks...

Pros: Slot spacing and price.

Cons: Poor positioning of fan, audio, 8-Pin headers. Very limited info in manual as far as the bios settings. Easy overclocking feature struggles with more exotic equipment. The board has heavy issues with voltage drops, and you need to compensate accordingly, but it is still unpredicatable. Even the easy overclocking feature can't keep up with the voltage drooping, which makes it fail. Very difficult to find support for this board.
My board seems to have some issues with dropping SATA connections which gave me a bunch of headaches with array corruption - probably bad solder joints as reseating and a little wiggle seem to wake them back up - but they still randomly died.

Other Thoughts: I thought I would give this board a try, after reading a couple reviews. Well, when looking for support tips, I found a lot of other folks having issues with this board (I should have read more). I have tried EVGA, Asus and now Asrock as far as X58's go, and Asrock has missed the boat on this board. Evga and Asus both achieved much higher OC's the the Asrock Supercomputer, with no voltage issues. The main problem with the Asrock "easy overclocking" is that you have no idea what setting it has altered and what effect occurs when you alter other setting along with feature. The bios is really a mess unless you are not overclocking, and really this is what most buyers of a $300 mobo are going to do. You really need to be a somewhat advanced OC'er to make this board work and hit the same high clocks that are easy with other manufacturers boards.

5 out of 5 eggsLiking my ASRocks

Pros: Slot spacing, tons of room
Ease of OverClocking
Ease of finding drivers on their site
Have my 920 OverClock'd to 3.3 on air and running stable at 3.8 on H2O. Have one of the older Rev as well.
Fair price when compared to other motherboards with same layout.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: This has been the least frustrating OC'ing board I have ever owned. It just works.

Also have a 5970 which I've OC'd to 900/1200, I've run all sorts of Benchmarking and stability test, hardware handles the abuse without issue. Give a good chunk of the credit to the mobo.

ASRocks should start a support forum like EVGA, place to hangout and swap configs

Home they keep cranking out quality boards like the Supercomputer!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Plenty of slots, dual-LAN, runs stable, over-all decent board.

Cons: My biggest con for this board is the inability to connect to external hard drives. I have 2 of these motherboards, the problem is the same on both. I've tried about 7 external hard drives and they basically don't connect, BUT, after trying all of the USB ports, on the 1 board, it will connect to the left front USB (i have the same case on both systems) and on the other board none work except one port on a 7 port hub (including onboard USB). LOL, Atleast i found a port on each that function. I contacted ASRock, and they offered to replace both boards, but i can't go that long without boards, so i'll live with using a specific port for external hard drives. This isn't a problem with Flash drives or Flash media. And i get the feeling that this problem can't be just my boards. Another factor to think about is that i exclusively use Seagate drives (and have for over 10 years). If i run across another brand hard drive, i'll test that out.

Other Thoughts: Both my systems (work and home) are the same,

ASRock Supercomputer Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W
CORSAIR XMS3 12GB 240-Pin SDRAM DDR3 1333
SAPPHIRE 100259-1GL Radeon HD 4870 1GB
Seagate Barracuda ST3160215A 160GB (system)
Seagate Barracuda ST31500341AS 1.5TB (data)
Seagate Barracuda ST31500341AS 1.5TB (backup)
Vista Ultimate

I rated this board 4 eggs because i think my problem is based in this board, my Seagates work everywhere else.

On a side note, i've built and troubleshot PCs and a few MACs for just over 15 years.

1 out of 5 eggsTime and Time again.. still no luck

Pros: Honestly after my frustration it's hard to think of a pro at the moment.

Newegg was a huge help as usual.

Cons: After returning board after board to Newegg trying to get one of the newer rev. I finally got one after dealing directly with AsRock. However my happiness was short lived.

I've had nothing but problems with this board. it's supposed to be an overclocking beast. I find it hard to believe since I can't even get it to run at a stable at default settings.

Whether the problem is board locking up during posting to bios... or the system freezing in mid operations of windows it was just glitchy as hell. Needless to say the board was not going to be an OC machine as intended.

AsRock's tech support I will say was very helpful and couldn't ask for more. I know that they aren't miracle workers nor was it their fault for such a product. However after I was told that its possible that my replacement board may not be new I said forget it.

I probably wouldn't buy an AsRock board again after this experience.. sorry AsRock.. I'm sure it was just a bad batch but still I'm paying for qua

Other Thoughts: As I stated Newegg was awesome in their return policy trying to get me the correct revision of the board.

AsRock Was awesome in trying to trouble shoot the problem and had some helpful suggestions. Sadly none of them worked.

The board never functioned as it was intended and not even remotely close to anything stable enough to over clock. I dropped my same components into an EVGA board and boom up and running, nice and stable from the get go.

Now I just have to figure out how to recoup some of the cost of the $300 board that was just a waste. Not to mention the shipping charges back and forth for numerous exchanges.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Copious slots (both PCI and PCIe); my primary reason for taking a chance on them. BIOS seems quite flexible, but I'm not overclocking or anything so can't speak from experience.

Better-than-expected clearance with a large-footprint CPU cooler, though AUX 12V connector is a bit hard to reach. I am not listing this as a con because the CPU cooler I use takes a 120mm fan mounted parallel to the motherboard, so it probably obscures much more of the board than a tower-style cooler would.

Cons: First one appeared DOA; power would not come on (fans would not spin up, no lights, etc.). Second one did, too, until I noticed the CMOS-clear jumper was missing (it must be in one of the positions, apparently). Installed it and everything was fine.

2-pin power LED header doesn't match 3-pin connector common with cases, but that's easy to fix.

Other Thoughts: What else to say, it is still working after a week's burn in (Prime95, Memtest86, Spinrite on the drives). I did get a Noctua NF-C12P cooler that blows down onto the board, instead of one of those tower types that blows parallel to the board, as I was worried about those other chips getting any air; this seems to work fine. (The Intel stock cooler is this way, too, and I think that told me something.) I don't think you can really get 4 2-slot GPUs in this thing and even hope to cool them adequately; it is just too tight. But that is more of an ATX spec limitation than a shortcoming of this board. (I found out that people have done this though, for portable teraflop workstations with nVidia Tesla or GTX cards, but they have custom-built cases with hurricane airflow).

This is my first RMA with Newegg, and I can't compliment them enough. Handled it all online, and they processed it quickly. What a pleasure in this age of ever-declining customer service.
