1 out of 5 eggsBad PCI-E Slot!

Pros: Cheap, Nice all in one drivers package.

Cons: PCI Express slot died right off the first boot.

Other Thoughts: I bought this board for my new gaming pc. Had nothing but problems from the first boot. My graphics card would not play games (MSI GeForce GTX 960 4gb). It would frame skip, but still stay at a constant 700fps. Couldn't figure it out, did some research and thought it was a bad graphics card. So I RMA'd my graphics card, only to get it back to realize it wasn't my graphics card. So did some more research, and narrowed it down to motherboard and power supply. I realized it was my motherboard later when I eventually got 8 beep codes when booting. Then I reseated the card, and it worked fine.

Wouldn't buy this board again. There's to many 1 egg reviews. Just don't cheap out on a motherboard. Won't buy anything from asrock again.

2 out of 5 eggsNot the best

Pros: Cheap and thats about it.

Cons: Sata ports on bottom of board never worked properly, I had a working hard drive till I plugged it into this board and it seems to of fried it, upgraded from a Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P and found this replacement so much worse, I have to force power the computer off several times to get it to even post. I am returning it as soon as I can.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage Quality

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Terrible quality part. My first one arrived defective. It would randomly power off and then it would take 10-20 tries to get it to post. Replacement is already doing the exact same thing 7 months later.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a refund so I could buy another mobo. while I waited on my refund I got another board that has worked great. Newegg didn't refund me but sent a replacement board out. I didn't feel like screwing around sending it back so I got some new ram and a processor and upgraded my moms PC. 7 months later the replacement board is doing to my mom what the original board did to me.

Asrock is garbage, I will never ever buy asrock again. Your parts are trash.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Price/Performance

Pros: Motherboard posted on the first try. Standard BIOS easy to use. Make sure to enable legacy USB support and to use the USB 2.0 ports if you're installing an OS from a flash drive.

Cons: Loading graphic is ugly.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good price

Cons: It took us tremendous efforts to have a PC built. It was not working initially. Later we found we have to flash BIOS every time when adding a new part. We finally have it worked with windows 8 then upgraded to windows 10. Seems ok with regular applications but it will shut down itself in 2 minutes when playing game. No overheating CPU, fans are working fine. My son built it for gaming, so basically it's not useful after working days and nights on it.
None of the USB2 ports are not working either.

5 out of 5 eggsStable mixture of New and Legacy

Pros: -Stable
-Supports Legacy FDD/PATA-IDE.
-Supports SATA 3 - 6GB/s & USB 3.0
-PCIE- 2.0 + FX Cpu Support
I needed a motherboard that could handle the latest FX lineup and support IDE/PATA + new tech like USB 3 and SATA 3. After reading many of the reviews here, I was hesitant about buying this but because of lack for better alternative I chanced it. I couldn't be happier. The build I did consists of an AMD FX-4350, 8GB DDR3, GTX 660 + 4 HDDs. It is stable. I've stressed test it (non OC) using OCCT & Prime95 and after hours upon hours of constant strain the VRMs actually held. No throttling/down-clocking. That said, you'll need sufficient airflow (I have 5 case fans + an after-market cpu cooler setup) to properly maintain cooling since there aren't any heat-sinks covering this boards VRMs'. A top-down fan config for the CPU isn't required if the CPU and case have sufficient air flow/cooling/reasonable temps. ASRock recommends it however. That said it's been stable, has handled heavy stress testing, and hasn't shown any sign of throttling due to excess heat (which this board will do as it supports fail safes in place to protect the VRMs from frying basically). It's a good board. If you had a negative experience with it, you need to RMA for another or you simply don't know what you're doing and aren't doing something correct. For example, no heatsinks on the VRMs, pretty much means, don't buy this board for overclocking! If you do and it fries, you've only yourself to blame and shouldn't be overclocking with it to begin with. Thanks for reading.

Cons: -No Heat-sinks on the VRMs. Would be nice, would make the board a candidate for overclocking imo.
-FDD at bottom left of the board. Had to buy a longer FDD cable that would reach, not a big deal but it would have made more sense to pair the FDD right next to the IDE/PATA connector like most other boards do.
-Onboard Chassis Fan Connector is right next to the PCI-E port, means you have to literally scrunch the plug right under your video card ( I installed a GTX 660 ) . Little annoying and bad placement.

Other Thoughts: If you're budget conscious and need a board to support the latest while maintaining some legacy facets and being stable, then this is the board for you!

5 out of 5 eggsNice mobo for the price

Pros: SATA 6Gb/s
USB3
inexpensive
trouble free
good performance for a low end system

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Been using one of these mobos for a couple years, with no problems. Decided to get a 2nd board to update an older system, while these are still available. The $20 rebate from ASRock went thru fairly quickly.
