5 out of 5 eggsASRock ROCKS!!

Pros: Great motherboard! Installation was a breeze. Looks nice, and has all the features I was looking for. The UEFI is brilliant, unlocked my tri-core to a Phenom II X4 easily. Has great OC tools in the bios and with software. ASRock knows what we want, and delivers at an incredible price!

Cons: Be nice if it had an onboard header for USB 3.0. My case has a USB 3.0 on the front, and couldnt hook it up to the board.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sucks this is not being sold anymore because it is a very nice motherboard. It is a small motherboard from what i've seen but does everything well. Can support up to 4 sticks of ram and 2 GPUs.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The stickers for the RAM slots were wrong for mine. The Manuel was right. Not huge enough issue to downrate it.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: I got this board for my brother, i set up a dual boot with a fire pro3800 on Win7 64 and Hd 4650 on XP 32. the intent was to make a coputer that was decent at both graphic design via autocad and photoshop, and a decent gaming PC. I liked that fact that it had a 8x/8x pci-e setup, seeing is how neither card prob uses the full 16X. got a 925 phenom x4 and 1866 sniper ram. Works well for my uses.

Cons: didn't uses as a am3+ board, But i updated the bois so hopefully will not experience the same problems as others when upgrades are needed. But so far so good

Other Thoughts: phenom 925 @ 2.8
1866 Gskill sniper
this mobo
2x250 WD blue raid0
Firepro 3800/HD4650

1 out of 5 eggsnot user friendly

Pros: Cheap and does what it says (mostly)

Cons: Does not fully support the newest of technologies.
AHCI mode does not work.
PCIE cards are difficult to insert and remove.
Not very many sata connectors or support for AM3+, but I cant complain... I got what I paid for.

Other Thoughts: AsRock support is the ABSOLUTE WORST I have ever dealt with...
I had to email them about 6 times nicely until I decided to send a nasty email. Only then did they respond with the worst answer i have ever received from tech support.

I asked them for help with the achi mode because my ssd was performing worse in ahci mode when it is supposed to work better. I told them my boot times were slow and they suggested i install instant boot from their website which doesnt work at all. All it does is restart your computer twice and then put it in sleep if your lucky and it works at all.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear AsRock Customer

We're sorry to hear that you've issue with mainboard. Would you please tell us more detail about AHCI mode issue? This mainboard supports AM3+ with BIOS version 1.5 or higher and you can download update at "http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=870 Extreme3 R2.0&o=BIOS". Would you please contact us at "http://www.asrock.com/support/tsd.asp". We’ll assist you shortly.

Thank you

3 out of 5 eggsFX-6100 WILL NOT WORK (see other review mentioning this)

Pros: Works great with AM3 (NOT AM3+) processors out of the box
Will now work with AM3+ after flashing bios via ASRock's website.

Cons: Requires an AM3 processor to flash bios before installing AM3+ (FX series) processors. Something needs to be added to reflect that *as of 1/25/2012* it will not support FX series out of the box.

Poor location for the HD_Audio header if your case has a short front panel cable

Other Thoughts: If you are using the Athlon II X6 or other AM3 processor, this board is actually quite nice (minus the HD_Audio location).

I wish I had read more of these reviews before ordering my mobo to find out that my FX-6100 would not work out of the box even though AM3+ support was advertised.

I had to order a new motherboard b/c I don't have an AM3 processor to flash with. My previous build (5+ years old) had an Athlon XP 2500+.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes NOT come with bios Supporting AM3+ CPU

Pros: The main pro is that i had an extra cpu so i can flash the bios and then I was able to install the FX-6100 without and further issue.

Cons: Not sure why Asrock would ship an AM3+ board with a bios that does not support AM3+ CPU.

There really is no excuse.

Not sure if Asrock thinks everyone has spare cpu laying around.
Calling this board AM3+ is a lie.
its like buying a chicken stir fry and not getting the chicken.

I received this board from newegg Jan 18th 2012
The bios was from June of 2011
Do not pay attention to the person with the 960T who says this board supports AM3+ CPU.
The 960T is not an AM3+ CPU.
Only CPU That start with FX are AM3+ cpu.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Budget Board

Pros: Good solid Board
Nice ability to use AMD FX series processors
Graphical UEFI is easy to use
3.0 USB ports
8 x * crossfire a plus

Cons: Poor board layout - audio is on far left of the board - awkard location
Low number of USB 2.0 ports

Other Thoughts: Be careful this board will suppor the new AMD FX chips but you have to upgrade the BIOS with an old AMD chip before you can install the FX processor. This is a big pain

4 out of 5 eggsGood Budget Board

Pros: this board has all the newest features a new motherboard should have at a good price and great for gamer on a budget. Feature rich with usb 3.0, sata3 and 8x8 crossfire which is a lot of bang for your buck.

Cons: Awkwardly placed audio pins and cpu fan pins keep this from being a better board as they require you to criss-cross cables across the board.

Other Thoughts: received this board one day after I ordered it and ran like a champ, installation was easy and was a great upgrade from a athlon 4400. I was able to unlock a fourth core from a x3 athlon II but ran into visual distortions and so changed it back to a x3. Overall happy with board and features.
