1 out of 5 eggsFIRE!

Pros: The board worked great for 15 months...

Cons: As I see on the reviews now, this board catches fire. I was lucky to get a year out of it. I woke up to find the PC powered off, tried turning it back on and the board caught fire near to the 4pin power connector and did not stop until it was unplugged.

Other Thoughts: Very lucky I witnessed the fire. It could have burnt up everything in my case if I did not get the power unplugged. Very disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Works so far and i have had it for over a year in a Mini-ITX In Win case. Hasn't caught fire yet.

Cons: The worry of a possible fire.

Other Thoughts: Unavailable nowadays which is probably due to the VRM issue.

1 out of 5 eggsCaught On Fire

Pros: Worked well for about 6 months, though ran hot so I put it in a new case with better fans.

Cons: After putting in the new case, ran OK for a few days, and then noticed it was shut off. Powered back on an the system caught on fire. Tried it again later, fire again. This item is discontinued so hopefully no one is buying them anymore, but it could've burned my house down if there wasn't a kill switch.

Other Thoughts: I have contacted Asrock as noted here. I hope they replace this with the newest FM2 board so I can give that a shot, though I'm hesitant. I'll give them a second chance if they replace my dead board.

1 out of 5 eggsProject Tiny has ended abruptly due to unforseen circumstances

Pros: The only board at the time to support AMD A10 in a Mini-ITX form factor.

Cons: I came home to a burning plastic smell. After 2 weeks of constant use, Tiny, my mini-ITX box, set next to my TV, was dead. I've had it overheat before, even with my Zalman ZNPS 7500 CU, and it'd just turn off, so I tried turning it on, and saw fire, and immediately pulled the plug, took the cover off, checked all the wires, and didn't see anything. Plugged it back in to see where the fire originated, and it sparked next to the 4-pin CPU power connector, and actually melted part of the board next to it. The board is done for.

Other Thoughts: At the time of its release, there were two mini-ITX motherboards which supported Socket FM2, this one and MSI's. I could not find any place that sold MSI's board, but did find it was a bit more expensive, and decided that this one had all the features I really needed, and anything extra could be added later.

My roommate pointed out the terrifying thought that what if the failsafes didn't kill the power to the board and the fire was left uncontrolled while we were out having dinner? We'd be homeless and everything we had of value would probably be destroyed.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy

Pros: none

Cons: Overheating and locking up more and more frequently. I have the case open with all fans at 100%. Resetting the cpu with new grease does nothing. It worked ok in the beginning albeit a little hot. Over time the board just completely degraded.
Sitting in BIOS the temp starts out at 50 C and creeps up to 80C until it locks up.

Other Thoughts: ASRock needs to be replacing these boards with the newer version, or offering a refund. I'm shocked to go back and read reviews on this thing after 6 months.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Board!

Pros: not really sure - the board died twice in my posession after only being on each time for a few days.

Cons: Very HOT
Unreliable

Other Thoughts: This is my second board. After paying out of pocket for shipping, I received a replacement board 10 days later and then swapped it out. It worked for 1 day and then died just like the last time. I am blown away. After 20 years of working in the computer field, I have never experienced the surreal feeling of buying a board, having it die, watching the product line be discontinued, receive a new replacement, and going through the same exact set of sequences. WOW. This makes me very concerned about buying Asrock again.

1 out of 5 eggsfailed after three months

Pros: nice feature set

Cons: always had overheating problems that eventually caused system freezes, and eventually complete failure.

Other Thoughts: get another board or wait for more to come out, this one is too risky to be worth it

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: High overclock ceiling. Mini-itx Fm2 support. worked first time, all drivers worked. OC works etc etc.

Cons: Gets hot, part of that is due to mini-itx cases being constrained. I can see how people would burn their boards. If you're careless and don't heat sink the VRMs, etc then yeah you can burn it up. Keep it in spec and keep it cool, and it'll work. I've had for about three months now, and no problems. (Fingers crossed i guess)

Other Thoughts: Overall seems like a great board, just gotta get some cooling going if you're going to OC high. Since its a delicate piece of equiptment, you gotta do your homework and realize that there are differences beyond the just the form factor. Also the new drivers I've seen people have problems with (Sata 3 ide etc). The drivers work if you know anything about how ridiculous windows can be. Also, the dual graphics is pretty decent, just make sure to get the fast ram, since the memory clock is the bottleneck for fps and etc.

1 out of 5 eggsAsRock Support is useless

Pros: My motherboard has not caught on fire.

Cons: Cannot load AHCI driver to install Windows.

Other Thoughts: The AsRock support forum is at OC Workbench. In order to establish an account, I have to answer the question, "What is the name of the famous horse dance style known as ?" Yeah. Right. Could a question be more obtuse? To open a support ticket and contact AsRock, you have to fill out an intrusive and exhaustive form that includes your phone number. Their response? "For technical issue and emergency case, we suggest you to contact your dealer first." Thanks for nothing, AsRock.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear AsRock Customer

We sincerely apologize that you having difficulty with mainboard. AHCI driver is not required for Windows 7. If Windows XP, please set the SATA mode to IDE since Windows XP requires floppy drive to install the third party drivers for AHCI. If you have any technical questions please contact us at http://www.asrock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsSlow and Broke

Pros: Not many options for FM2 in mITX format. The WEFI firmware update function worked like a champ. Relatively easy to use.

Cons: The Motherboard was rather slow. It seemed to underclock the processor to 14x more often than desired. Then it died after 45 days.

Other Thoughts: It had been working fine (although slow) for a month and a half, on firmware 1.1, then I wanted to update the firmware to see if the performance improved. I did so, but performance did not improve. I turned the dehumdifier function on and rebooted, and everything was normal for a few hours. I put the machine to sleep, and woke up the next day and the system would not post. Took everything unessential out of the rig, still would not post. Switched PSU's (original was a seasonic, substitue was a coolermaster) and still nothing. Took it out of case, rinse and repeat, still nothing =(. I guess we will see what ASrock suppor has to say.
