4 out of 5 eggsNew UEFI fixed my lock up issues

Pros: Overall the board has delivered the performance expected out of a 6-core i7-3930K. The PC is used mostly for gaming and transcoding of Blu-Ray discs, the latter which takes lots of CPU power.

I really like the ability to set default fan speeds (for fans that are plugged into the mobo) to keep the noise down when the PC isn't busy.

The latest UEFI (upgraded from 1.80) fixed my lock up issues (see below).

Cons: I however had one nagging issue that others have mentioned, where the board would just lock up. If there was any audio playing at the time it would go into an infinite loop, a sign that probably the clocks stopped working. The only recourse was a reboot. This happened randomly maybe once or twice a week, while the PC was busy or sitting idle.

Other Thoughts: i7-3930k w/Hyper 212 cooler
4*4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR3-1866
MSI TwinFrozr HD7970 3GB
Seasonic X650 Gold PSU
Obsidian 650D case
2x SSD (120GB+240GB)
3x 1TB WD HDD

4 out of 5 eggsGood features

Pros: Seems as it would be very easy to OC if you were willing to void your warranty.
lots of PCI-E slots, and 40 channels to make them useable for 3-way sli/Xfire @ 16-16-8 bit.
Very User friendly bios
lots of fan headers

Cons: Drive recognition issues, probably won't be a problem for me but if you intend to use all the sata ports you may be disappointed.

Other Thoughts: Purchased as a rebuild in tandem with:
i7-4820k IB-E
Cooler Master Seidon 120XL

All components mated flawlessly

1 out of 5 eggsOn second thought...

Pros: It has nice stats.

Cons: Many have noted problems where the board does not work at all. But a few like me have had the problem of the computer locking up with an audio loop. Also, there is problem, probably related where it sends irregular voltage throughout most of the ports, like USB which causes some peripherals to go into a detected/undetected cycle. Whats terrible is that the problem is not immediately known as a motherboard issue, but only through the process of elimination and rebuilding the entire rig can it be absolutely certain that it is not other components, or a short from a loose screw or something.

Other Thoughts: What an incredible waste of my time! It would have been much better if it was DOA than to have it lock up once a week, thus making it take another week to test each single variable change and see if the trouble remains.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize that you having difficulty with mainboard.
For the locking up issue, please set the UEFI BIOS default.
Check the CPU and system are not overheating.
Test with single memory module on A1 slot, switching another memory if its same issue.

5 out of 5 eggsI Like This Board

Pros: Excellent running board, has great features, overclocks well and easily. I like the audio- screams on linux Mint 16. All my computers are dual boot, Windows 8.1 and linux Mint 16 (now that it's out) It rips with a new IB in it!Am replacing my AMD 8 cores with these. The increase in performance with the same vid card you have is mind blowing. I have some GTX480's, playing secondlife online, on a not too busy sim, the fps are 175-200. On a real busy sim with lots of avatars and lots of scripts, it might get below 75fps. What's there not to like lol. It's the best solution for "future proof" Well able to handle a GTX Titan and future "monster" cards they haven't even made yet.I can't really say that about any other solution from Intel or AMD. Think about the your future in gaming. How many times do you want to keep upgrading.

Cons: The board and the proc cost mucho long green money.

Other Thoughts: The last one of these I bought (about a week ago out of the "new" batch newegg just recieved)has the latest bios , and thats a good thing because I put a new Ivy in it :))

1 out of 5 eggsGreat while it works

Pros: Great price for feature board with 3 Pcie 3.0 slots. I run a I7-3930k with an OCZ vertex 4 256 ssd. The UI and bios were smooth and supported mouse which is pretty awesome. Boot times were extremely fast.

Cons: board is toast after no overclocking 8 months in. Awaiting RMA from ASRock

Other Thoughts: I clean my case regularly, antec 900 case, so I do not believe heat could have been a factor. Did not own long enough to test with SLI either

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for 5 months

Pros: Cheapest ATX board on the market for LGA2011
Works flawlessly with 3930k... again when it works.

Cons: 1. Worked for 5 months then cooked itself (sparks and smoke)

2. Poor customer support… other people warned me before, but I could not believe them till I tried it myself.

Had to call and email twice and finally talked to supervisor to get started RMA process. Also had to provide copy of newegg order with date and price I paid for it. Which was pain and took another 30min for me because I'm buying from newegg computer parts for my customers every day and got good couple hundred invoices already.

Other Thoughts: I'm a system builder with over 10 years of experience. I was always using Asrock boards on my system builds because of value/price. Sometimes I was buying Asus and Gigabyte when they were on sale. Couple months ago had similar situation with Gigabyte board… RMA process was much easier - they just wanted model # and sn# of the board. Got RMA approval and shipping label couple hours later after submitting RMA request. Week later got new board back.
Now my question to Asrock: Should I stay with you guys or completely switch to Gigabyte or someone else with better customer support?

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

Sorry to hear that the mainboard has malfunctioned after 5 months which’s due to nature of electronic product, it can happen.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty solid motherboard, STUPID EASY overclocking.

Pros: I originally purchased this mobo because it was more or less the only one that I could find that had all of the features I wanted, which was a pain considering I wanted a PCI slot for my M-Audio Delta 44 card. When I first got it, I was all upset off that I couldn't get it working and thought it was bad. As it turned out, I had a bad Intel i7 3820...so like an idiot I ended up with a 3930k instead and, well, this board has been totally solid since then. If you have DDR3-2400 you can crank a 3930k up to 5GHz given adequate cooling (and some luck I hear)...

Cons: Not the cheapest motherboard I've had, but more or less in line with competitors. PCI implementation is not amazing, but PCI slots are not as common as they used to be.

Other Thoughts: My next motherboard will likely be an ASRock as they seem to put a lot of compatibility options on their boards and their support and pricing seem pretty good...

1 out of 5 eggsWould not reccomend

Pros: Easy install

Cons: Kept giving me random freezes, ran Memtests at load and not at load multiple times, all temps fine, changed out graphics card and still get freezes with an audio loop, support doesn't seem to be responsive at all, probably going to RMA

Other Thoughts: Real disappointed in this, went with AsRock thinking I would have good luck for a good price, thinking about even just switching out for an Asus board

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the freeze issue, please check the CPU is not overheating at BIOS, H/W Monitor, CPU Temperature should not be exceeded than 70c.
Set the UEFI BIOS default.
Test with single memory, try with another memory if the problem still persist.
If you have any technical issues or warranty questions please contact our Tech Support at 909-590-8308 or http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.

2 out of 5 eggsBad quality Mobo

Pros: The board can support usb 3.0 and a bunch of new features but your milage may vary on how well these things work. The mobo does allow the computer to run... sometimes if you are stick to a configuration it can handle

Cons: the built in RAID controller is terrible and wont initialize and see your raid cards unless its a slow boot, and even then its hit or miss on whether it will initialize during boot. ive had 2 board have this same issue after an RMA so its definitely designed that way.

Other Thoughts: Do not get this board if you are trying to have a SSD primary and 2 HDD's in raid, something is weird with the controller and wont allow this function even though they say you can.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize that you having difficulty with RAID.
Please connect the SSD drive to Intel SATA3_0, two HDDs to Intel SATA2_0 and _1 ports.
Download and update the BIOS at link "http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/X79%20Extreme4/?cat=Download&os=BIOS ".
Test with another SATA cables.
Check the SSD and/or HDD causing the issue (check for firmware update availability).
If you have any technical issues or warranty questions please contact our Tech Support at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.
