2 out of 5 eggsLasted 1.5 years

Pros: Flaky on re-boots since I bought it.
Bought 8/21/2010 --- RIP 6/24/2012.

Solid overclocked performance.

Cons: Dead in 1.5 years.

Other Thoughts: ASrock don't last more than 2 years. I thought my ASrock 1st one was just a fluke. Both had great performance, but too expensive to buy them again. ( price 2 of MB in 3 years ) ESP, since MS makes you call them for any hardware changes. Need a performer that lasts.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great...until the warranty ran out

Pros: A lot of features on one board for the price.

Cons: Died almost exactly one year to the day that i ordered it.

Other Thoughts: I submited a customer service issue to ASRock 10 days ago but have not gotten a response at all. In the meantime, I have to hobble along with an old computer while this one sits in limbo. Customer service leaves something to be designed.

5 out of 5 eggsGood quality motherboard.

Pros: Good quality, nice layout, great price point, supports PATA if you need it still and has a few USB 3.0 slots, detected my Phenom II X4 955 out of the box, and overclocked it to 3.8Ghz, manually, without trouble.

Bios layout is simple and easy to use, lists important information, and booted up on the spot, even allows multiple saves to be used to hold different clocks, voltages and some settings for quick changes.

Cons: It's mATX so it's a little small, putting everything together can be tricky at times depending on the size of the other parts you place into it.

A full size Geforce 580 made working with the USB ports on the board a little tricky, but not a major issue. I do wish the on-board chassis speaker was in a little better position though.

Other Thoughts: Turbo UCC doesn't exactly push the system when overclocking, only clocked to 3.4ghz on it's own, I disabled that and pushed it to 3.8Ghz without any trouble and only a minor voltage bump.

As with most motherboards, it defaults RAM to Jedec specs, so you have to alter voltage and cas timings yourself, but that is normal.

This board and box, lacks some of the "features" of higher end boards, normal of the price point, but don't buy it expecting it to hold everything. Only includes 2 SATA 3Gb/s cables.

Doesn't come with a sticker /cry lol^^

4 out of 5 eggsSolid motherboard under Linux

Pros: Looks like it uses a lot of high quality capacitors. Has the 880G AMD chipset, 5 SATA ports, USB3, and a flexible BIOS. Can automatically throttle the CPU fan speed to keep it quiet, which works well. My full system with an Athlon II x3 450 processor and two hard drives runs at 52 to 58 watts at idle, and 99 watts at full CPU load, based on my Kill-A-Watt meter.

Dual screen works great under Fedora 13 linux with no tweaks needed, using VGA and DVI. So far it seems totally stable.

Cons: This model does *not* come with 128MB of sideport memory for the onboard graphics. This is counter to what is advertised, and Newegg is misleading customers with this listed under specifications. It appears that this motherboard what Asrock refers to as "880GMH-LE/USB3".

Other Thoughts: I had an old Atom 230 based system that I bought to keep energy consumption down. Unfortunately that came with a very inefficient northbridge, and was also painfully slow. So I decided to get a modern 3-core system, and this only consumes 12-15 watts of additional power at idle. Great bargain.

Be aware that you cannot use both the DVI and HDMI video outputs at the same time, as according to the manual. However, you can use VGA and DVI at the same time.

5 out of 5 eggsASRock makes good boards

Pros: I've used ASRock boards for my last 3 builds and they're affordable and reliable. The BIOS has a ton of features for customization and over clocking if that's your thing. BIOS upgrades are easily done through windows or the instant flash feature in the BIOS.

Cons: I've played with voltages and timings on my G.Skill Ripjaws memory,but I can't get it to run reliably at DDR3 1600 speeds. The memory was created for Intel chips, but usually with the right customization it doesn't matter. It's a minimal con though because it flies even at 1333 speeds with 7-7-7-24 timings and I can attribute this completely to the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I bought this board so I could switch over to DDR3 memory and USB 3.0. I gear my system towards low power quiet operation. I have an Athlon II 3.0 ghz cpu and it really responded well to the use of DDR3 memory. Quad and hexacore processors are nice, but this dual core is like a turbocharged 4cyl. It's more than enough for most people.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks in linux

Pros: Works as advertised. Lots of built-in features. There are a LOT of USB ports on this thing! Six external and six internal! You'll never need a USB hub again! Video and network work out of the box in Linux. (Did not test sound.) Probably great for overclocking, but I don't overclock so I couldn't test it.

Cons: This motherboard comes with no less than three ports for the on-board video chipset. The manual for this motherboard advertised dual-head video capability. I did not realize when buying that the DVI connector is digital-only and WILL NOT WORK with a DVI-to-VGA adapter. The only way to have dual-head capability is when you have exactly one digital monitor (DVI or HDMI) and exactly one analog monitor (VGA). No other combination (e.g., DVI+HDMI) will work. I think this should be highlighted in the details somewhere as it really caught me off-guard. I was trying to put together a high-performance, low-power system but now I have to power an add-on video card just to get dual-head.

1 out of 5 eggsNot happy...

Pros: Comes in a pretty box

Cons: Mobo DOA

Other Thoughts: The fans power on, but that is about it. No tell tale "beep" as it POSTS and no signal from any video outputs.
I don't know if I can fault the manufacturer or Newegg/UPS on this one. The mobo was packaged at the end of a box flat against the box wall without any packing materials between it and the side (thanks Newegg). Guess which end of the box looked like an accordion (Thanks UPS). No pieces were rattling and everything looked good, however it will not POST.
Newegg seems to have no clue on how to package delicate pieces of electronics for shipping. Even my Radeon 6870 came in its own box flat on the bottom of the box pressed into a corner with 6" of peanuts on all other sides. It would have been much better to make it have 3" of peanuts all around it. 4 boxes from 3 different origins came this way. Newegg... PLEASE GET A CLUE HOW TO SAFELY PACKAGE ELECTRONICS.

More from Newegg… I ordered the Plextor external Blu-Ray burner (retail box) and it was definitely previo

5 out of 5 eggsNice Board

Pros: Very well layed out board. Easy to understand directions and logos on board. Five SATA II connectors. NOTE: USB3 drivers were NOT included in Windows 7. (This is the ONLY thing that Windows 7 could not detect.) USB2 worked fine as did all other devices with the stock Microsoft drivers. ASROCK released new drivers as of 9/28/2010. While the stock drives may work fine I suggest getting the factory ones.

Cons: Only one PS/2 for keyboard. Not a super big problem except when you have a PS/2 KVM for mouse and keyboard. Will have to get a USB to PS/2 adapter if you need a PS/2 mouse connector.

Motherboard does not have a parallel port for those that need to hook up an old school printer. These are not real bad problems and I expected this when I ordered the board.

Some confusion about the power connector. Board will work with a 20 pin or 24 pin power connector. My power connector was split so I just used the 20 pin and it worked fine.
