1 out of 5 eggsBroke

Pros: ???

Cons: Dead on arrival.
Heard good things about this board but since it arrived dead I can't verify.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice board. Works as expected. Only 1 Issue, see cons. Threw every thing together and it booted the first time I pushed the power button.

Cons: Only one but not enough to dock an egg. I originally used a dell monitor 19" square. I ended up connecting a 27" wide screen. I had to update the video driver for it to display properly.

Other Thoughts: My system:
ASRock FM2A55M-DGS
AMD A4-5300 Trinity 3.4GHz
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB DDR3 1866
OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great.

Pros: Love the UEFI graphics BIOS. For someone not well versed in BIOS setup almost too much information.

Supports G.Skill 8GB DDR3-2400 ram. ASROCK's website had no info on whether any 8GB sticks would work let alone DDR3-2400's.

Using a pair of G.Skill Ares 8GB DDR3-2400's for total of 16GB's of RAM with no problems.

Graphics set to 1GB of RAM.

System defaulted to XMP memory profile, DDR3 1333, and 1.48V.

Had to change to auto, DDR3-2400, and bump voltage to 1.65v. Has worked flawlessly since then.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My fault. Forgot to check mobo chipset specs. This mobo does not support 6GB/sec SATA.

That said the error was mine and not ASROCKS. Still very happy with the system and its still very fast.

1 out of 5 eggs2 Boards BSoD with 3 different APU's

Pros: Hard to say where it BSoD'd every time full chipset and graphics drivers were installed.

Cons: Upon installation of chipset and graphics drivers, BSoD every 90 seconds. AMD thought it was a faulty APU and replaced it (A4-5300), same result. Newegg replaced the board RMA, same result. Took known good APU from another machine (A4-5300, again), same result.

There's something in the drivers and the chipset of this board that just don't play nice. I tried the 12.1 vga drivers from ASRock's site, the 13.4 drivers from AMD and even the 13.6 beta drivers, all on clean installs. Everything left me with the same result=BSoD every 90 seconds.

Returning the board and replacing it with a board from MSI with the A75 chipset.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please download and update the BIOS at link " http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/FM2A55M-DGS/?cat=Download&os=BIOS ".
Set the UEFI BIOS default.
Check the CPU is not overheating at BIOS, H/W monitor.
Test with single memory module, switching another memory if it's 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.

1 out of 5 eggsIncompatible with A4-5300

Pros: Good for price.

Cons: No USB 3.0
No compatibility with A4-5300 APU. Upon installation of display drivers (12.1 from ASRock's website, 13.4 from AMD and 13.6 beta from AMD), computer blue screens every 90 seconds. I put an A4-5300 I knew to be good on the board and the blue screens continued. Either ASRock messed up the board or AMD messed up the driver. Either way, steer clear of this board.

4 out of 5 eggsGood board

Pros: Small board that does the job.

Cons: Nothing really, but my case has a power led that has a three pin and this board only has a two pin for the power led so I just left it out. So it depends on the case.

Other Thoughts: Could've used at least one USB 3.0 and a sata 3 port.
