4 out of 5 eggsFollow up On Previous Review

Pros: I posted before about my problem with the old BIOS and said I would follow up. I sent an email to ASRock about my problem, but I wasn't able to tell if it actually went through because their "problem reporting" area on there web site was malfunctioning. I sent one out again. I sent out an email from my own web server and waited. On Monday, I promptly got a response asking me some questions about my configuration - memory testing and location, CPU placement, add on cards and the like. After confirming I had tested everything I had to tell the rep that my BIOS version would not run any Intel e5-2600 versions. He thought I was wrong, but promptly got back to me that, yes I was correct and he would get me out a new BIOS per USPS. I told him that was too slow and If I was able to give him my Fedex Number would he overnight it? I got the BIOS the next morning, booted the machine, loaded the hyper-visor and the additional OS's and everything is running beautifully.

Cons: Like I posted before, it's too bad that the BIOS is not current.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate on Board

Pros: william@asrockamerica.com
Is the tech at asrock that manages the reviews on here so far after 6 months of having this running in a business it has run non stop no issues accept one time where I was working on the pc with the case off and had a lose ground which is my fault. The motherboard is running a lan center now using ccboot. It powers 40 gaming computers on part of the vmware, webhosting on another, Pfsence as the router, A reverse proxy for games, And many more things. This board is holding just fine never a moment of downtime after the issue with it being shipped with a old bios which william from asrock got to me.

Cons: william@asrockamerica.com
When I got this it had a old bios took a week to get the new one sent to me which 2 days of it I'm pretty sure as its been six months as this was a test product. As of the 24th this month someone posted another review with the same issue. This is a annoyance more then a con but, non the less u still got to wait a week before putting it in endless this is fixed. William told me that they were taking care of that but, if that is the only thing that is missed well nothing more I can say.

Other Thoughts: 128gb ram
8 3tb red drives sata 6
2 1tb ssd
4 256gb ssds
6085e raid card
Running vmware 5.5
I know it said to only use
- VMWare ESXi 5.1 due to the marvel not working in raid any more but, hey if you have brains you can use powercli from vmware to build the motherboard raid card back into this!
To get the raid card to boot due to this board you need to. First put the card in initialize the drives on it take the card out go into bios go to boot then to Csm Parameters Launch storage oprom policy and put it as DO NOT LAUNCH

Had to email william as I didn't know that which I should have.

2 out of 5 eggsStill Old BIOS

Pros: None as yet - won't boot

Cons: Read the questions and answers first. I didn't catch what they were saying and it cost me. I read about the old BIOS, but that was five months ago, so it should be correct by now - right?. Wrong. My board was way outdated and will not work with any E5-26xx or E5-46xx chips - not even using only one CPU. What would be the purpose of this board if you can't use these chips. Tech support is only open 40 hours per week. Computers run 24/7. I am going to see if they will overnight me the new BIOS( I'm willing to pay the freight). That will tell me a lot about the customer service part. I'll let you know.

Other Thoughts: Everybody makes mistakes, but the BIOS issue is not and old issue. They need to follow up with the Distributers and make sure the updated BIOS is sent with the motherboard.

3 out of 5 eggsOld bios

Pros: None yet still waiting on replacement bios

Cons: Bios verison is from 5/27/2013 first release 2nd release is 9/12/2013 for 1.4 which I need in order to use the processors I have. However asrock is sending me a new bios so I can have it installed with version 1.8. So be aware you might get this board and half to wait another week as you will need asrock to send you a bios update endless you have a old xeon laying around that it will take with the old bios version of 1.3

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Due to the mainboard has been released before ivy bridge processor (IVB-EP), the BIOS update is needed to recognizing the new processor.
