1 out of 5 eggsDied after less than 4mos

Pros: Fired right up initially

Cons: Died in less than 4 mos w/ only default settings, No OC'ing.

Other Thoughts: Less than 4 mos after installing this board it is now dead. Tried PSU, Memory, Video Card. Everything I know to troubleshoot after 25yrs as an IT Hardware professional.
ASRock does not answer emails even after filling out their page.
Will stick to another brand I guess.

5 out of 5 eggsASRock 990FX AM3+ motherboard

Pros: Supports AM3+ 125W processor, 990FX Northbridge, 2 external USB3.0 ports, 6 external USB2 ports, eSATA port, 5 SATA III, PS2 keyboard & mouse ports, 6 external USB2 ports, 3 internal USB2 headers for 6 more USB2 ports, 8 audio channels, 3 PCIe 2.0 x 16 slots, 2 PCI slots, inexpensive.

Cons: no on-board USB 3, no firewire, 5.1 sound works OK, but I can't seem to get 7.1 sound. Connecting or disconnecting headset to/from the front panel crashes the system.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with this board. The front panel is connected to an adapter card, and the webcam microphone is good enough. For the price the board is a real bargain.

5 out of 5 eggsMaybe I was lucky, Got a great board unlike some other reviewers

Pros: -Favorite part(& big part of why I bought it) is that it can do 2 PCI Express 2.0 x 16 slots at the full x16 speed. I used these to Crossfire my 2 AMD Radeon HD 6770s together & it made one heck of a gaming rig, taking everything I threw at it & performing marvelously.
-SATA ports are SATA III. Mixed with SSDs, this thing REALLY moved!
-Gigabit LAN, I won't buy a board (or system for that matter) without this anymore. Gigabit is a minimum LAN speed.
-TONS of USB ports
-On board USB 3.0 sure is fast
-XFAST USB maxes out the USB. I noticed the biggest difference in the 2.0 ports since the 3.0 ones are already blazingly fast.
-The audio was great IMO. Didn't use it's full potential tho, just stereo.
-LOADS of FAN connectors compared with only 3 on my new board.
-REALLY enjoyed the THX TruStudio software.

Cons: -UEFI - What the **** is that all about? Gimme the old Basic straight forward info the way the BIOS UI is supposed to. Quit trying to pretty things up in stupid ways. Seeing a lot of MoBo manufacturers going this route. -_-
-only 5, instead of 6, SATA ports
-....Not really much else comes to mind. I replaced it for reasons I don't remember now & have been trying to sell it for several months. There may be bad reviews and DOAs & such, but this is one we KNOW works well.

Other Thoughts: Got this back in March 2012 and used it up until November of this past year (2014). If I can't sell it, I'll turn it into another gaming rig so my main one and the new one can be networked together to play some sweet LAN games. I'd LOVE to put another 3 systems together specifically for LAN games on Crysis & Starcraft & stuff. GOLLY that'd be awesome to be able to afford (money AND time). -Sigh-
Great Mobo, Definitely recommend for Crossfiring 2 cards together.

5 out of 5 eggsgood for the price

Pros: everything has worked as specified. Minor overclocking on an 8320 with an evo 212 cooler. I have had no issues at all with the motherboard although if I was building now I would go with one that has better 8 core support and more USB 3.0 ports

Cons: poor 8 core support

Other Thoughts: As long as you do your research on compatible CPU and RAM, this motherboard works exactly as it should

1 out of 5 eggsDied before a year and a half

Pros: Worked while it lasted

Cons: Random reboots throughout it's life. Changed PSU to try to fix this and it still did it up until it died. ASRock refused to RMA at this issue. Then when I was playing GTA V it completely shutdown, now it's not even performing POST at all (Removing RAM with a speaker plugged in results in no beep codes.) I will not recommend ASRock as a brand anymore.

Other Thoughts: ASRock support distanced themselves from any and all responsibility of this product's defects. For that reason I'm giving them a poor rating. I know that this is probably just a dud board, but I wouldn't be in this boat if ASRock RMA'd this board when I was having the initial issue.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks just fine

Pros: I've had this board for a year and five months now. It's worked just fine since day one and the only problem I've had was that I broke off one of the little tabs that hold a card in an x16 slot, but really that's more a problem with me fiddling around inside the case while drunk than a defect or design fault.

Cons: Fan connector placement is less than ideal for my case.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard, not great

Pros: Pros:
This motherboard, for the price, is amazing. It has had no problems until after the 1 year of use mark

Cons: Cons: This motherboard lasted about a year for me. Recently, I've had to replace my BIOS battery a second time. In a 1 year period you shouldn't have to change it once. My friend had had computers for over 10 years, and he hasn't had to change any BIOS battery ONCE. This motherboard is also a suspect in my almost hourly PC crashes.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard!

Pros: Very fast boot-time. It's practically perfect.

Cons: First starting the motherboard in my new build it went into BIOS "VERY" slowly but recovered and started perfectly after.

SATA port placement is weird.

Other Thoughts: Get this motherboard. It's very worth it. Even though some may not trust ASRock, it's more reliable than my previous ASUS.

Trust me, this is fantastic.
