1 out of 5 eggsWaited until it went into production, then failed hard

Pros: The board was actually a dream to install. Easy documentation, low profile drivers, simple job to mount and everything went on well.

This board was being tossed into a production 4tb RAID10 file server at our IT repair shop to host media and offsite backups for clients. We used it light-medium file transfer load, just tossing media files and junk to make sure it could handle the load, leaving it on for a few days, kicking it off, etc for burn in. Seemed to work fine until...

Cons: Box was put under strain for the first day of production, doing a 200gb raw Esata backup file transfer from a removable onto the Data Raid (Controlled by a RocketRaid from Highpoint). We left the shop for a call, within 30 minutes of starting the transfer, entire PCI bus had failed. Raid card as well as video went down. Barely were able to get that back up, then the onboard RAID (used for a simple OS mirror) went down and had to resync the drives. We broke the mirror, ripped the board out, and are returning. Replacing this with a Gigabyte board thats costing us 50$ more

Other Thoughts: All in all, a summary is that the price was nice (100$ for a robust basic board for a Desktop-hardware base Server for a small business) Board seemed to work ok, until it failed. When it failed, it took down everything, and multiple portions starting failing, coming back, and failing again.

I won't trust this brand with production machines again. Over and Over, in my experience, I'm finding that EVGA and Gigabyte boards are the only solid bases currently.

The one positive constant throughout this has been Newegg support and customer care. Full Refund and very understanding of my unique situation. I'm a newegg customer for life.

1 out of 5 eggsCaught on Fire

Pros: Pros= house didn't catch on fire

Cons: Built new system using this board and i5-760, bios screen starts coming up then a cloud of smoke starts coming from the PC, then it starts shooting sparks and flames and one of the VRMs basically exploded

Pros: Power Button on Board

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: This board does everything I could ask. Installing my i5-760 was as it should be, completely recognized on first boot up. Ram runs at the correct speed (you have to use the correct dimms and I made sure to only get ddr3 1333 since the i5-760 doesn't say it supports 1600).

My Radeon 5770 also is running perfectly on this board.

Cons: I sure don't have any!

Other Thoughts: I can run BFBC2 on this board with an i5-760, Radeon 5770, 4 Gb ddr3 1333 on a 20 in 1660x900 Hanns-G moniter over an hdmi connection at max settings (with EVERYTHING max) at a steady 60 fps with fraps running... and I haven't oc'd a single component!

There's no reason to go buy a board that is any more expensive than this one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board if you read the manual

Pros: Great board.
Very Inexpensive.
Overclocks very well. My i3 550 is at 4.0GHz right now as I type this on this board.
Onboard power, reset, and clear CMOS buttons. You just never see that on a board this inexpensive.
Onboard POST code display, another feature never seen on a board in this price class.
Great PCI-E placement. Leaves a slot open between the cards, which is great for modern high heat graphics cards.

Cons: Orange PCI-E slot is only an x4. I don't know why board makers do this.
No SLi support, but the hack can be used to do SLi.

Other Thoughts: Anyone complaining about the blue RAM slots not working, miahmoto, should read the manual. It says right in there, on page 17, that the blue ram slots can only be used once the white slots are filled.
This is a limitation of the processor, since the memory controller is actually on the processor not the motherboard, and it effects pretty much all P55 boards.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for me

Pros: Does what it says.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried out any of the overclocking features, so I can't comment on that but I am satisfied. I would want USB 3.0 if I were shopping now though.

1 out of 5 eggsnot worth the trouble

Pros: It's inexpensive and has most of what any beginner needs.

Cons: Trying to get an RMA to return the board is near impossible. The tech support isn't bad, but once they tell you it's bad, they cut all communication.

Other Thoughts: The blue, dual channel memory slots were bad and I should have listened to the few who complained about that. I thought it was the RAM at first and replaced them. When I put the new ones in I placed them in the white slots without thinking and the board fired up fine. I later found I put them in the wrong slot and switched the RAM back to the blue and the board refused to start up. By this time it was after the 30 days. Too bad, because Newegg would have replaced it immediately. You'll regret trying to return anything to ASRock.

5 out of 5 eggsJust What I Needed

Pros: A whole lot easier to use and set up than my previous motherboard (Gb EP45T-UD3LR). Has a floppy drive connector for us antiquarians. Running just fine for me with 8GB of memory on four sticks dual channel. Many boards go goofy when you push past 4GB, not this one.

Cons: Features a two-digit LED display for POST errors; mine came up showing an un-documented error code. Later I discovered that one memory DIMM was improperly seated; then the problem (and mystery code) went away.

Other Thoughts: Don't forget to buy a separate cpu cooler (intel's plastic one included in the box is a joke), and install the cooler before trying to put the motherboard into your case.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's Okay.

Pros: Works, has a lot of features, great buy.

Cons: Overclcoking is difficult. I had some issues with my i5 750 and it's still not right- it blue screens after overclocking the CPU and RAM and it wont post after light overclocks using the built in settings. Not sure if its the turbo boost or not, but I can't find how to turn it off. The instruction manual is useless and offers 0 help.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

Pros: It works and turns on?

Cons: look at other thoughs

Other Thoughts: no matter what i do to this board i can not get my memory to run over 800 mzh and no matter what i do i cant get my i7 to run over 1.1 gh. ive tried everything you can think of turned the volts up changed settings EVERYTHING ive tried doesnt work. everytime i change something the pc will not cut back on and i have to reset the cmos. if i even go into the bios and dont change anything and turn it back on i have to reset it. no matter what type ddr3 memory i put in here it will only read at half so if 1600 it will only read at 800 so on and so on.

i contacted asrocks to find out what was going on. it took me over 3 tries to finally get to them and there answer was i should have bought an i7 960 Extream Cpu and thats no joke that was there answer to my memory and cpu problems. i replaced this board with a Gigabyte board and now everything works PERFECTLY. granted will never buy an asrock board again
