4 out of 5 eggsGood price and expected quality

Pros: General usage is good and testing purpose is good.
We run security VMS SW for serious situation & running test.
With LGA 1155 and others, so far so good.

Cons: We use & test ASUS, ASROCK, EVGA, Intel and other MB. Most of them is okay, but this ASROCK MB is weird on SATA port priority. WE use ACHI with Hot-SWAP cage for all MB and only ASROCK does not detect correctly, even we plugin to SATA 1 & 2 of 6GB.
SATA III should be up and SATA II is should be below priority - and even ASROCK manual told and MB desc. said SATA III is 1 & 2, SATA II is 3 to 6.

However, when we swap HDD & install new HDD ( we normally use only 2 spot of HOT Swap cage and it connect to SATA 1 & 2 port no matter what SATA II or SATA III. Most of MB (other company') is working good.

But, only ASROCK should set again for Boot Priority on CMOS. Yes, it does not matter about loading Win 7 or 8. But, CMOS set is basic .

So that is little issue #1.

And Issue #2 is one of driver (MB) is not automatically set by ASROCK driver CD. Even if you install all of drivers option (provided by CD auto,) you can still see one of driver is unknown (i remember PC comm or other one.)

To solve this, you should update driver and set folder as 'CD' and update it by yourself manually. Or, windows update could help/fix it after 3rd or 4th optional update.

Issue #3, when we test VMS (video management system) and Video Surveillance SW, we see some idle / delay issue on processing. It does not affect to overall procedure, but if some user want to play game with this MB, it could be an issue.
We test benchmarking and found 2-3 sec delay/idle issue on MB side. We have same memory(Patriot ), same power (760W) and little different CPU (but LGA 1155 CPU is 3rd and LGA 1150 CPU is 2nd gen. Yes, we also test Gen. 4th i7 / i5 ) for all MB. Only ASROCK show this case.

But, overall price and quality is pretty good. We happy about getting another one for other testing in future.

3 out of 5 eggs*1 year update*

Pros: asdf

Cons: jkl;

Other Thoughts: Both the SATA 3 ports randomly stopped working one day.

Plugged the SSDs that were in those slots into the SATA 2 ports and kept on working.

Not going to bother with all the hassle of dismantling my build and RMAing just to replace a motherboard for an ageing 1155 socket.

Not happy with my purchase, but not horribly dissatisfied either. Hey, it's almost $60....

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price

Pros: Nice Z75 board
Good feature set
Well priced

Cons: One of the SATA 6Gb can get blocked by a long GPU
CPU fan control is a bit aggressive
Driver CD is full of crapware

Other Thoughts: Used the board to refresh an older I7-3770 build I had. No real preformance gains, but for $70 it was worth the money for the additional BIOS options.

4 out of 5 eggsAfter Two Years.

Pros: This is a great motherboard for anyone who needs a somewhat powerful but inexpensive option when building their first computer.

Cons: The motherboard functions well enough that there are virtually non existent.

Other Thoughts: This is a good starter, but look to options with greater capabilities if you want a more powerful gaming system.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Has all the basics (pci slots, 4 mem slots, etc) for a good single-gfx-card gaming rig build (which is what it was bought to replace).

Cons: Doesn't work. Bread-boarded it initially with my i5, and the HS fan came on. I didn't have it hooked to monitor or speaker, so didn't hear or see it post. Figured it was good to go. Slapped it all into my comp, booted... no post. So, start stripping things out. I've now got the mobo + cpu + psu + speaker plugged in, and that's it. I've tested with 2 different PSU that I know work (pulled from other comps where the PSU was working). I tried the i5 from my build, and the i7 from a different build. Neither get a post. This is the first mobo I've ever bought that was DOA, and the first ASRock mobo I ever bought. Contacted their support last week, and haven't heard back. Just an auto-response saying they got the message. Not a happy camper. Read their support responses to others, so tried adding stick of RAM, use VGA (since both i7 & i5 I have contain built-in intel gfx)... it's not posting. Like another commenter said, my mobo box arrived open/unsealed. Maybe they pack them like that? I don't know. I'm just not happy with this. I've wasted a week on this stupid thing, and I'm not getting any support. The mobo doesn't even have beep codes, so I can't tell what the heck is wrong. Unacceptable product, and unacceptable support.

Other Thoughts: My first time trying an ASRock mobo... and last.

Manufacturer Response:

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.
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 (non-ECC, un-buffered).
Test with onboard VGA (CPU with iGPU/APU supported or test with VGA card).
Plug the 24 + 8 or 4 pins ATX power.
Plug the chassis power switch to mainboard, and try again.

4 out of 5 eggsBang for your buck

Pros: *First and foremost, the price. The board (at the time I got it) was $62, and shipping was free. At this price point, I only had a few requirements:
-Z75 Chipset / Socket 1155 to fit the i5 I had
-2+ SATA3
-ATX form (build was going in a Corsair Obsidian 800D)
-Not look like it was made from smelted child's toys (read: full of blue, red, or yellow)

*The points I wanted were all available in this board, and I went for it.
*The build quality actually surprised me. I did a thorough examination of the PCI slots, capacitors, heatsinks, and I/O panel. Nothing seemed poorly made.

*The DIMM's are not entirely too close to the CPU socket--and I used a Xigmatek Dark Knight cooler with this build with plenty of room to spare. No sacrificing memory slots. Nice.
*The BIOS is by no means an omnipotent being, but it is a little more capable than I would have expected for this pricepoint. I was able to setup a default profile, then I tested the built in OC function which instantly rank the 3ghz i5 right up to 3.7ghz (turbo still on, although irrelevant at this clockspeed). I saved that as a second profile, and created a third in which I manually overclocked (chip's max is 3.7, but there are a few more tweaks in the BIOS that presented themself). I saved my manual OC as the third profile. For me, that was enough features for what I paid for.

*The PCB is labeled pretty clearly, which doesn't leave the builder running to the manual to find the positions of pins for the power switches etc. Which, anno 2014, should be a standard feature and I was glad to find that it wasn't overlooked.

++Not feature-rich, but for the price...you really feel like you get a little more than you paid for. I didn't feel like I had compromised the features I am accustomed to just to spend less.

Cons: *Biggest gripe was instantly noticeable: the PCIe x1 slot (typically used for your sound card) is directly above the graphics (PCIx x16) slot. I've had boards that cost $300+ with this same design "flaw" (as I'll call it) and it's frustrating as a long-time system builder & tweaker. With today's graphic cards, it's not out of the question to think that a user buying a budget-board like this one is going to put in a mid-to-high-end video card. Cramming the 1x and 16x slots so close really puts some limitations--and some users might even be forced to sacrifice one card for the other (or use a dreaded "low profile" option).

*The BIOS could be said to be lacking. I'd agree if someone said this, but I think it's tough to call it a true con being that the board is so inexpensive. You *do* get what you pay for.

*The SATA connections on the board could have been 90 degree options. This is just something you find on some boards, and it's something I would have considered a nice thing to have.

*Some might say the Realtek ALC892 on-board sound is lackluster, or run of the mill. In-and-of-itself that's not a true con per se; however, the issues I mentioned with the PCIe 1x slot being in such tight quarters may lead to you having slight problems wedging a high end sound option in there after you tuck in that beefy video board.

*There could have been a few more fan ports on the board itself. There were three chassis fan ports (one of which being 3-pin), as well as two CPU fan ports (again, one being 3-pin).

Other Thoughts: +Users with large cases (Read: Corsair Obsidian 800D) may want to use a fan controller with this board. While the board provided fan connections, large cases with 4+ chassis fans will end up wondering "now where will I plug this one in...?" Then again, with a $300 PC case you probably have already moved on to a controller.

+As mentioned, the board itself is offered at a price that makes you nervous that you'd be compromising all the features you want. While it's not necessarily overloaded with features, you certainly get more features than you expect for the price.

+++If you're looking for a board to replace a dead motherboard, or if you just need a quick budget item: I recommend this.

+++I'm not giving a "5 egg" rating simply on principle, I don't think many products deserve it unless they are truly exceptional. That being said, consider this a "high 4 egg" because of the value.

1 out of 5 eggsSo far, doesn't work

Pros: None, b/c I can't get it to work

Cons: Hooked to PC speaker, but no boot codes sounding off. Old mobo died, and would twitch the fans while bread-boarded. Got this as a replacement. Bread-boarded with just mobo + cpu + psu, and the cpu fans cranked up and stayed going. So, figured I was in business. Stuffed it all in my PC, boot up ... and while the fans are going nothing else happens: no boot codes, no visual through gfx card. Stripped everything out and started from scratch again: mobo + cpu + psu + pc speaker. I should be getting some kind of boot code complainig about lack of ram or something. But, I don't. If the cpu is bad... how can I tell? Either the mobo or the cpu is bad, b/c I already tested the psu on another machine. This is pretty annoying. There's no way to tell if the mobo is getting power unless you boot it. There's no way to tell what the problem is without beep codes. Currently not a happy camper. First time I tried a different brand than ASUS (b/c the board that just died was an ASUS, so figured their quality was slipping), and I get (what I'm assuming) is a DOA board from the start. This doesn't inspire me to keep doing business with ASRock.

Other Thoughts: As an alternate tid-bit, the board seems flimsy. Not talking about the silicon, no the soldered parts. They flex very easily. Plugged in the SATA connectors, and you can easily wiggle them back-n-forth in uncomfortable fashion. The 24 pin connector can push up against the RAM uncomfortably if not bent perfectly. Inserting PCI cards to slots saw the PCI slots wobbling uncomfortably. I felt like things were going to pop off easily. This board had what I needed. Wouldn't call it "budget", b/c it had the PCI slots, etc I needed. But, it seems cheaply made and doesn't seem to work nor give any indication as to why it won't work. So, it's a waste of time and money (since I'll get stuck paying to ship it back). I should have stuck with ASUS.

Manufacturer Response:

Please trouble shoot the mainboard if its POST.
Unplug the ATX power, remove all components from mainboard.
Remove the mainboard from chassis, place it on mainboard’s box.
Clear the CMOS.
Check the mainboard’s CPU socket contact pins are normal (should be pointing same way and pattern).
Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan if socket pins are normal.
Test with single memory module (non-ECC, un-buffered).
Test with onboard VGA (CPU with iGPU/APU supported or test with VGA card).
Plug the 24 + 8 or 4 pins ATX power.
Plug the chassis power switch to mainboard, and try again.
