5 out of 5 eggsNice Little Mobo

Pros: Low cost, Overclocks good, availability!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Build a system from older parts I have here, I was able to get the same overclock on an AMD 940 quadcore as other higher price mobo. Thank you Asrock for making motherboard available.

5 out of 5 eggsLike a Charm

Pros: Works great for older parts

Cons: Small Issue

Other Thoughts: One issue was that after not using it for a while, the CMOS battery had to be popped in order to get it working again. Other than that, does its job well! Purchased this to use with parts from an older computer and they fit together perfectly.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Board

Pros: Fast and stable when it ran (although not burn-jn tested).

Cons: I had this model board previously. 2 months out of 1 yr. warranty it died. I purchased this board as replacement and it is faulty; I did a bench build and it ran fine until I installed it in the box and connected the front panel headers. Then it failed to POST. Detached the front panel connectors and it booted & ran perfectly. Did this several times. I reset BIOS back to default, no difference. RMA'd back to Newegg.

Other Thoughts: Too bad, Asrock seems to be lax on quality testing before shipping their boards, I am noticing a lot of complaints on their boards, Newegg and other online suppliers also.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize that you having difficulty with mainboard.
For the front panel connection issue, please plug chassis power switch only to mainboard to check if the symptom still occurs.
Test with another known good front panel connector.
If you have any technical issues please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsnice upgrade

Pros: great upgrade to repair lagging box store computers from 7 years ago... great way to use all those parts sitting around collecting dust - very stable .. once up and running

Cons: 1st motherboard had issues .. finally up and running died while burning in .. With Newegg premier , saved shipping to - shipping back for rma - expedited shipped new replacement also free- now up and running .. typing this review on the computer...

so - for all the service and attention that Newegg provided .. no star removal for initial board as does happen from time to time.

Other Thoughts: System is VERY stable and idle temps hovering in the 20's using - Athlon II x4 645 3.1 gig quad, paired with 4 gig (2x2gig) G-Skill F@ 8500 CL6D-4GBNQ 1066 DDR2 @2.0 volt on windows 8.1 .. had to set timing manually but system stable at correct timing and speed - no overclocking used - set up with a business class Video card - AMD HD-8570 -also had an old averVideo tv - radio combo pcIe card installed - not for gaming with this video card - but perfect for upgraded business class with tv, hd video and radio for client - all with parts sitting on workbench (and his old emachines vista single core system) re- fanned old case with Arctic Fans (CPU, rear case and hard drive fan) working together - daisy chained thru power management @ 40% nice and quiet - would recommend to all who have those big box machines to bring back to life ...

1 out of 5 eggsASRock/A785GM-LE

Pros: Not completely obsolete.

Cons: The board is just not really worth the $60+ bucks. It only has Serial ATA II support, keep this in mind as you will not be able to use any other Hard Disk Drives with this board. Nor will you be able to use 2 different types of RAM they must both be the same or you will not be able to use the Dual Channel DDR2 feature it shows in the User's Manual.

Other Thoughts: I may have just gotten a faulty board from the box. Mine would not even post to the BIOS. All-n-All if I were you I'd just save my money and go either MSI w/DDR3 Mother board, and not waste your time with this Dinosaur. I was just trying to replace an Acer Aspire M1202's motherboard.
And do it with as little cost as possible, due to the fact it was for my daughter hence no return profit whatsoever. FYI I've been fixing/building rigs for about 15 years now. What seemed like a real bargain turned out to just be a real headache.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard to check if it resolved the POST issue.
Remove the mainboard from chassis, place it on mainboard’s box.
Clear the CMOS.
Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan.
Test with single memory module.
Test with onboard VGA.
If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointment

Pros: When it worked: excellent response and speed, fair to good BIOS options, can be overclocked.

Cons: Died 3 months after the 1 year warranty expired. It actually was giving me problems for the last 6 months; random restarts, mouse and screen would freeze for 10 seconds, then it would reboot. It would do this several times, then no more problems for a few weeks, then do it again. I thought I had a driver conflict of some kind and killed myself trying to find out what it was. Then the monitor would not work on boot unless the computer sat for 10 minutes & then the desktop icons were all scattered. This went on for 2 months along with spontaneous reboots. Now it died entirely, no response, no keyboard recognition beep from the BIOS, no POST screen, no monitor display. Tested my memory, hard drives, and power supply....all tested good. I have 22 years IT experience, and am MCP certified by Microsoft Corporation. I know computers.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst time buying a ASRock Board

Pros: Just need a replacement for a HP Pavilion board.

Cons: 4 pin cpu connector? Really?

Other Thoughts: It runs fine so far. Now I need to figure out how to slow down the RPM's in a 3 pin connector or end up buying a new cpu cooler

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Neat little board when it works. This is the second board of this type I have purchased. The first is working well after three months but the second one came DOA.

Cons: The board will not post or give any bios error beeps (speaker attached.) I have taken the board out of the tower, removed and reseated all peripherals, reset the bios and retried powering the board with no success TWICE NOW. Having to RMA unit.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard to verify the issue.
Turn off the power.
Clear the CMOS.
Test without memory to check if it’s making 3 beeps repeatedly (indicates no memory installed).
Install the single memory to test.
If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

4 out of 5 eggsFinally Stable

Pros: My father's motherboard failed in his HP Pavilion Slimline and I scoffed at the $75 price tag for an identical replacement board on online auction sites. My Dad's over 70 years old and doesn't plan to buy a new machine... ever. For less money, this NEW motherboard put life into my Dad's machine. Oddly enough, EVERYTHING, including the HP headers fit perfectly except the power cable (see other thoughts) and I now have my Dad running dual monitors (which together make one HD monitor, but that's another story).

Cons: - I thought by reading reviews purchasing a 4-pin 70mm CPU fan or aftermarket heatsink/fan wouldn't be a problem to dial back the full-speed jet fan going on by default. This was a HUGE chore and ultimately a design flaw imho. Given the era this motherboard is built for, the CPU fan connector should have been 3-pin for the stock fans.
- Windows 7 was highly unstable (random power offs during Windows update) until I installed the AHCI driver on the disc. Everything was smooth sailing afterward.
- DVI-D? Seriously? OK, make the signal digital but at least give as a DVI-I connector so we can plugin the converters for the old monitors.

Other Thoughts: The 24-pin ATX power cable was too short, but I easily found and an extension on newegg for less than $5. I tossed in a cheap 128gb SSD while I was at it. If I can find one at a reasonable price I might drop in a low-profile video card as well. All in all, despite a few minor nuances, there's nothing here to deter anyone from purchasing this motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsASRock Rocks!

Pros: Works out of the box. Thought my previous motherboard was shot turned out it was just my videocard that was defective. Bought a dud with bad support so had to live with it.

Plenty of SATA ports would be nice to have sata 3 ports, but I use this computer for light office duties, and for home related activities and surfing. Speed was not what I was looking for only reliability. Surprised, it lasted 3 months. I might do a review again if I'm not happy.

My old motherboard only had two sata ports, and limited me. Worked great but I thought it was defective. I bought another videocard and build another rig out of it.

BIOS has so many options some that I might never use. The startup GUI is a nice touch. I wasn't expecting much but was surprised with the BIOS options.

Cons: Has one of those pins to reset the bios. Has not seen that for many years. I wouldn't really care except its just in an awkward space by the pci express slot.

I had to turn over my rig a couple of times to get the pin. In this price range I was pleasantly surprised. Worried that a cap might get blown, but if it does maybe I can find another motherboard in a few years on the internet

Other Thoughts: AM2 boards are tough to find if you have an option to find a another board with ddr2 support for more go for it otherwise I would roll the dice and go with this.

Otherwise search the internet and auction sites for used boards and good luck.
