4 out of 5 eggsFollow up

Pros: I want to thank ASRock support for clearing up the issue with the FX-8350 CPU. I gather the MB power supply just wasn't designed for it. That explains the instability issues as well. It did however work fine with my old AMD 4-core, maxing out at ~69C under full load. I've decided to order an FX-8350 CPU rated Gigabyte MB, mainly because I’m used to the BIOS nomenclature, and I may want to overclock. Otherwise, this seems like a good MB for the money.

Cons: Not necessarily a con, but I had trouble figuring out how to get my monitor and keyboard to come out of standby in WinXP 32bit. After setting the BIOS to default, it worked. Not sure what the issue was.

Other Thoughts: It's a good move for tech support to answer questions here. It shows the company is willing to solve problems.

3 out of 5 eggsA bit let down

Pros: Inexpensive, with built in graphics and AMD FX CPU capable. Should be a good deal.

Cons: What a hassle. Thought I would upgrade to ~3x the power with an AMD 8350 FX CPU with a cheap MB, cause I don't need fancy graphics...fat chance. CPU keeps clocking down at ~65C no matter what I set in the BIOS. I've checked everything. What up, ASRock?!

Other Thoughts: Got a cheap liquid Zalman CPU cooler...no help at all. Still clocks down, unless I enable AMD C & Q in BIOS and enable it with the IES utility. Then it crashes at ~72C..say wha? That's opposite of how it should work, no? As far as I see, ~$300 in all wasted. This MB seems to have a built in clock down feature. Guess it's not for real time functions...shame. Maybe they will release a beta BIOS to disable it? Please do, ASRock. I'm on WinXP 32bit.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: BIOS is ugly, but easy to use. Manual was excellent. Lots of USB ports. Had everything i needed.

Cons: Experienced problems a couple months after using it. They have become more frequent. Now I can't game for more than 30 minutes without my system crashing/restarting.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the crashing issue, please download and update the latest BIOS at link " http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/880GM-LE%20FX/?cat=Download&os=BIOS "
Set the UEFI BIOS default.
Check the CPU is not overheating.
Test with single memory module, switching another memory if problem still persist.

5 out of 5 eggsASRock 880 GM LE FX

Pros: - Supports the FX series CPUs! (I have in 8350 in it.)
- Simple, budget board, but has some nice features to it.
- Doesn't get very warm at all with the NB/SB.
- Beginner level overclocking capabilities. Kept my FX 4350 @ 4.5GHz stable, and I managed to overclock that to 4.9GHz before it started complaining. Got my FX 8350 up to 4.7GHz, and it decided it didn't like that above 4.5GHz.
- Cheap, does good for basic, day to day things. See other thoughts, also!

Cons: - The colors, though a motherboard isn't designed for staring at unless you're an Enthusiast making a build and want it to look like a hot date. And let's face it; this is no Enthusiast board.
- Not the best overclocker, I just kinda know what I'm doing in that region. If you're looking for overclocking, and you have a higher budget than this...go for the Fata1ity if you're into ASRock.
- Doesn't support 700 series Nvidia cards. Tried updating everything, flashing the BIOS...you name it. Even contacted Nvidia. Posted just fine for a Radeon 7970, though, and it's ran my 7770 for the past seven months.

Other Thoughts: Don't overclock with this. This is a board for day-to-day use, though I used it for gaming for a good seven months, and don't get me wrong, it has served me well!

Like I said, look into a 'higher priced' board with better power phases and beefed regulators. Then you'll be in a safer zone for overclocking without any/or less risk to your hardware. Economics declare; dat sheet ain't cheap yo!

3 out of 5 eggsso-so

Pros: Core Unlocker, worked for me.

Cons: Doesn't seem to OC well, Graphics Flicker.

Other Thoughts: Had a Phenom II x2 BE 3.2 (unlocked to x4) in an Asrock 770 extreme3 OC.d to 3.8 with FSB of 2600 (Gskill 1600 mem) - put processor and mem in this board and can only get 3.4 with fsb of 2400 with ram down to 1333 from 1600. Fussed with this for hours. wei on ram now 5.9 (was 7.6 on asrock) even without OC on processor cant get ram to run @ 2600 FSB. I can get 1600 mem speed, but doesn't change wei score and processor score drops. Can't get display to stop flickering, so will have to put graphics card in it. For what its worth graphics gets a 4.6 Aero and 5.4 gaming. 3rd ASUS board for me, am sticking with the ASRock boards from now on (11 of them with NO problems on any of them) Odd that the "economy" division of ASUS make better boards.

5 out of 5 eggsFolding@Home

Pros: Stability
layout

Cons: lack of USB3 & HDMI

Other Thoughts: running 2 cores at 100% with Ubuntu folding.
The other cores never stutter...using HD vid...beautiful graphics.
I don't play games, but I'm sure it'd do OK, for sure.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Got this MB to replace my old failing MB which worked great with Linux. Reading the specs, it seemed like a good replacement. It even used my old memory. However I couldn't get my printer to work with it. If you don't have a parallel printer [under linux] then this MB works OK. My parallel printer worked great with my old MB and all Linux versions I tried in the past. To be fair they don't state they support Linux but I've been building my PCs and running Linux for years and never have had a problem before.

Cons: Currently running OpenSuse and Linux Mint and the computer hangs when trying to print using either, I also tried Knoppix from the CD. ASRock's response to my problem was short and to the point "Unfortunately ASRock does not have any solution for any linux version". Being that I'm a long time Linux user I would not recommend buying from this manufacturer. I want to support manufacturers that support Linux!

Other Thoughts: Oddly one of their FAQS was about parallel printer problems and the response was to go set the parallel port mode to "normal" in the BIOS...unfortunately my BIOS dosen't have that option. So evidently the default parallel port setting is not "normal"?

Being that my old HP Deskjet 722C is still working fine I was trying to save some bucks on a new printer. I guess I'll have to get a USB (probably wireless) printer.

1 out of 5 eggsWas Hopeful

Pros: Has Onboard video card

Cons: Came dead on arrival... or at least the onboard video was.

Other Thoughts: just go ahead and wait... save money and get a better board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Ole busta

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard to check if its resolved;
Unplug the ATX power.
Remove the mainboard from chassis, place the mainboard on mainboard’s box
Clear the CMOS
Reseat the CPU with heatsink fan as well
Test with single memory module (non-ECC, un-buffered)
Plug monitor to onboard VGA
Plug the 24 pins + 4 pins ATX power
Plug the chassis power switch to mainboard, and try again
If you have any technical issues or warranty questions please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsFailed, but good while it lasted

Pros: I believe this is a very sound product, considering the price. with a very good bus speed, and with the AM3+ processor is a very good product.

Cons: Don't let the PSU fail. It WILL destroy the mother board. (happened to me) Atleast its cheap.

Other Thoughts: I recommend buying a good PSU.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate... not as good as originally thought

Pros: Price

Cons: Quality

Other Thoughts: After owning this board a couple of months, I have been getting all kinds of problems with it. Specifically, just like my old ASROCK 939 Dual Sata, it refuses to POST sometimes with this beep code:

Beep beep... beep beep beep beep beep beep beep

e.g. 2 beep, pause, 7 beep

I can't find what it means, it's not in the manual and Asrock support doesn't seem to know either. It does this about 25% of the time right now and I have ruled out all other hardware being the cause.

Since as mentioned, I had another Asrock board in my last build, which after 3-4 months started issuing the same error(and I fought it for 5 years before it died completely!), I'm gonna have to assume that this is a quality control issue :/

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Beeps code usually related to memory or VGA.
Please unplug the power, clear the CMOS.
Test with single memory module, try with another known good memory if its same issue.
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.
