5 out of 5 eggsPefect for repairs

Pros: I bought this to repair a computer who's motherboard blew out. Haven't had any trouble, and it was actually a small upgrade from the board it had before.

Cons: Nothing

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 ran 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 themselves). 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.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Mobo for my I7-3770

Pros: Inexpensive, decent chipset
Many variables in UEFI BIOS
System was up quickly at first
Am able to run 2400mhz RAM w/o having to use CPU OC

Cons: SATA 2 ports covered if you put a long 2nd GPU in
Only has 2 SATA 3 ports
No quick reset button

Other Thoughts: All in all, very happy with this motherboard, I had an Alienware X51 that had zero room for expansion, yet had a decent CPU I7-3770, and I wanted to enlarge system. I bought this mobo as "open box", and was very skeptical at first. I rebuilt the system with a Corsair 100R, EVGA 650 PS, 16 gb of 2400 ddr3, and used 2 graphics boards I had. A new 750ti, and old 545 from system. It took a while for me to get it all running on win 10, but now I have it running 7 monitors (HD), and system is not that slow with all that graphics running. I had to get all new drivers from Nvidia (they are fantastic with updates!!) and was able to use HDMI with on board graphics power.
It took Win 10 a while to reload, but I was able to change MB, RAM, GPU. And system accepted all those changes :)

2 out of 5 eggs"Worked" well

Pros: Works really well. Replaced my 3yr-old(and dead) gigabyte h77m board. On my previous board I had to update the bios to make it compatible with gtx760 (otherwise it would just show black screen all day and wont boot), but this one was just plug&play so that's a plus for me. Hard to find better lga1155 board these days

Cons: PC wouldn't shut down after installation (windows shuts down but cpu cooler and other fans won't). However, CMOS reset fixed it right away; didn't need such surprise though.

Other Thoughts: Board works nicely for now but some other reviews say it didn't last long. Will see how long mine lasts :S
----------------------------------edit Feb 26 2016-------------------------------------------------
It BROKE after one month + week of ownership :(
No motherboard splash screen at all at the beginning of boot process with just black screen continuing until forced shutdown. Already tried suggested troubleshoot options by ASRock Support and it doesn't work.Really disappointing.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsInexpensive MB with just the features I needed.

Pros: Easy bios, usb 3.0, two 6Gb/s sata connectors, cheap price, compatibility with my Zeon e3 1270v2 processor. Great easy setup using the Zeon chip and 16 GB of 1600 non ecc memory. Passmark cpu score of 10456. Can have 20+ open sites in IE while gaming and it stays rock solid. Running 4 ssd's and two optical drives on it and it's been solid so far. Only been using it for a week and if I run into any problems with it (before I upgrade:) I'll update this.

Cons: Had primary ssd in 0 and it didn't recognize it, switched it to 1 and it did. Minor.

Other Thoughts: Didn't want to spend much due to a future 1150 upgrade so this fit the bill.

Update 2/10/16 After doing some overclocking I noticed it trying to set the multiplier to x45 no matter what I actually had it set to. It was also automatically overvolting even though I had manually set the voltage. Thought I had killed the board, but reset cmos with the jumper and all is well now.

Update 2/20/16.. having spent a couple months with it now, this has been a good board for people that want to over clock their I5, or I7 to an average overclock. I got a 106 x bus with the Xeon and x45 multi with a 3770k and 2600k. Anything over that caused B/S/O/D and messing up the bios. A simple cmos reset took care of the bios. My take on it is this is a good motherboard for a modest overclock, but not for the high overclock. This just doesn't have the power capabilities. Anything over 3.4 volts and it gets wonky. After that being said, it fits my 4.5 OC needs.

2 out of 5 eggsThe PciE 3.0 Slot did not work

Pros: - cheap
- one of the few motherboard I could find for my 1155 cpu
- other than the bad slot seems like a pretty decent board
- Neweggs RMA process was painless and the staff very friendly and helpful

Cons: - Pci Express 3.0 slot did not work, tried several different working video cards but none were recognized.
- Contacted ASRock support and they insisted it was a bios setting. Tried all their suggestions in bios, but no luck.
- Finally bought a ASRock Z77 board and the Pci Express 3.0 slot worked right out of the box
- The board is kind of thin and flexes easily. Have to be careful not to break runs.
- Got a refund for the motherboard, but did not get a refund for the original shipping

Other Thoughts: Might just have had bad luck. Other then the bad PciE 3.0 slot the board seemed to work well. Love the bios interface, one of the best I've seen. Would only buy items from Newegg that have free shipping. This way you wouldn't loose money if you have to return.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer,

3 out of 5 eggsOkay board for the price

Pros: Good price
Replaced my old broken board with similar stats

Cons: Something is very wrong with the sound. Some of my movies won't play at the correct volume and even internet videos have to be played at max digital volume with my speakers on max. THIS did not happen with my older ASROCK Z77 that it replaced. This has to be a board problem because nothing else changed.
