3 out of 5 eggsGood for everyday usage; but, not building or overclocking

Pros: -It will likely last five-seven years.(three plus so far)
-It has useful features like internet-flashing.
-It works excellent at stock specifications.

Cons: -It's horrible for overclocking due to lack of proper load-line configurations.
-> The only way to stabilize higher overclock to flood voltage (bad for processor)

-Bigger video cards will block multiple pci-express lanes due to poor design.
-It's very easy to break certain things like sata ports when building due to poor design.

-Like all on-board audio, it sounds okay; but, not excellent (on-board surround not worth it)
-> I noticed a massive increase in sound quality when upgrading to a dedicated sound card.

Other Thoughts: -I would recommend this product due to quality for everyday users who want to run stock specifications.

-I would not recommend this product for the branded or following purposes.
-> Overclocking (with liquid cooling)
-> Rookie Commander Builders
-> On-board Surround Sound

1 out of 5 eggsAsrock horrible to deal with

Pros: Newegg helped all they could with problem. Asrock was usless.

Cons: Got ASRock 990FX Extreme9 home and discovered it would not raid my 2 Crucial SSDs. I called Asrock and they said certain HHDs have compatibility issues with ASRock 990FX Extreme9 board and that I will have to buy 2 new HHDs. I tried to explain that the Crucial drives were much older and it was the responsibility of Asrock to be backwards compatible. Service tech from Asrock was zero help to me and was rude. Don't buy from Asrock. You will be on your own. Even months later, Newegg refunded me $20 for my problems. No problem with Newegg.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy from Asrock. You will be on your own.

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid, 24/7 Fast performer. Best Board I've ever owned.

Pros: Everything. Pair this board with an 8-Core CPU, solid power supply and SSD and be prepared for your brain to melt.

Cons: None. Not a darn one......ok, MAYBE the price tag. The price of this board hasn't really changed since 2013....but it's one of the best on the AMD Platform, so it is what it is.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdate to last review

Pros: Plenty of options

Cons: First board died.

Other Thoughts: In my last post I had issue with the board. I had no response to my email request. I replied to their automated email reply and actually got a message back saying they had no record of my request.

Anyway, I tried the support phone number I saw from another post and got help immediately. They were then quick to issue an RMA. They mailed out my new board 9/292015 and it should be here 10/3/2015. I would say that their response once contact was made was quick and professional.

The board is a good and this is my first AsRock board and might be my last. I have owned several brands and this is the first I have ever had fail which is not bad but it took a CPU with it before it died.

2 out of 5 eggsNo support for Board Issues

Pros: Plenty of options for overclocking. Like the bios options.

Cons: I have been having issues with this board for a while. My new FX-8350 cpu died last week put in an RMA with AMD. Now my old Phenom II 855 bit the dust this morning it DR. Debug is reporting 00, tried reseating, clearing cmos.. I have an RMA in with AMD about my 8350 and they have been quick to respond. But I have had a Support request in with AsRock for a while now and have only received an automated response.

I could not recommend nor purchase another AsRock component with support such as this.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Code 00 usually related to CPU and/or mainbaord.

Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.

• Turn the power off, clear the CMOS.
• Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan.
• Plug the 24 + 8 or 4 pins ATX power.
• Turn on the power (using onboard power button) to check if its post or code shown on the maibnaord.

If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/Support/tsd.asp
We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsIt is not a Sabertooth

Pros: Runs a fx-9590 with no problem. Used 2400 ram off Asrock list. XMP read and set for 2400. << Default settings work fine with this CPU. Has no problem with running 2 r9 285s in crossfire. Clean install scored 13150 on Firestrike. Costs $50 less than a Sabertooth. Has a pretty good audio chipset.

Cons: Fine tuning OC bios not that good. This will take a FX6350 but the OC part could be a challange, The built in OC may do fine

Other Thoughts: The built in over clocker did not do much with a 9590. I dont if it was the board limit or the CPU just makes it good enough to be stamped as a 9590. I bought it because it has a good audio section on the board. I had a Sabertooth good for overclocking, but sound was noisy. Yes it does do 2400 speed ram. BTW there is not much difference between Win 8.1 and Win 10 with 8 cores. There is a noticeable difference with AMD A10 APU in win 10. No it won't beat this Asock/9590 for gaming. I just run this at default.

1 out of 5 eggsZero, Zippo, Nadda Support

Pros: None watsoever

Cons: ASRock support is nonexistent

Other Thoughts: Tried contacting this company, ASRock, twice through "http://www.ASRock.com/Support/tsd.asp" that they claim they "will assist you shortly" in all their standard responses to critical reviews on Newegg. It has been over a month (7/21/2015 and 07/30/2015) and I have received absolutely NO response from ASRock. Zero, zippo, nadda. I would not recommend ANY of this company's products to anyone. I have since junked this board and taken the loss.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsDefective board -- worse warranty policy

Pros: Good features. Good selection of ports and connectivity. Seems to be built well.

Cons: Doesn't work properly. Supposed to support 32GB (or is it 64GB), I could not get it to boot 16GB (4 identical 4GB sticks) no matter what I tried -- even after working with their Tech Support. Many of the USB port -- including the USB 3.0 ports do not work -- even after upgrading all the drivers (as has been suggested in many places). Also found SSD performance to be quite lacking. ASRock agreed to RMA the board (thank you for accepting the obvious), but would not send me a replacement board in advance even with paying a deposit (as other makers allow you to do). I have to dismantle my PC send the board in and wait 2-3 weeks before I can get a new board and put it back together. So I either have to be without my computer (and I work on it several hours per day) or buy another board to build it so I don't lose the use of the computer -- and get stuck with 2 motherboard once they get around to sending my the replacement. For anyone that works on their computer, that is unacceptable. If you can't supply a reliable product, at least don't totally inconvenience and punish your customers for buying your defective product. This was my first ASRock product, but unless they change their punishing warranty policy and provide reasonable customer care, I won't be buying another one. This is not just a game -- I rely on my computer for work -- it must perform and be reliable, and there must be decent customer service policies that recognize this.

Other Thoughts: I've been sitting with this defective board, looking for the opportunity where I can give it up for 2-3 week, and it just doesn't happen. So, ASRock, am I stuck with a defective board until I decide to buy another one, making your warranty useless?

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer,

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
We will be more than happy to assist you for replacement, if the mainboard is malfunctioned.
For the returning service, please refer to RMA policy at "http://www.ASRock.com/Support/index.asp?cat=Policy"

If you have any technical inquiry or warranty question in the future, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/Support/tsd.asp
We will assist you shortly.


Thank you
