5 out of 5 eggsgood board

Pros: Everything is labeled, decent manual, looks like it has several Overclocking options. Not something I want to do atm but, good to know its there.

Board came with two data wires and the screen for the back and a decent manual.

Its rare to see a FDD and older IDE connector on a main board but this has both, and several SATA connectors and room for a bit more it seems.

Cons: This is a confusing point. IM not sure who used to do this, but most cases or motherboards came with speakers. Now its down to Piezo speakers yet neither my MB nor the case came with one. Kinda hard to hear a POST test without one yes? :)

Other than that, I have no issues so far.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this mobo

Pros: Loving this mobo. Lot's of SATA ports, and even 2 high speed ones. Good software.

Cons: XFast USB incl. software doesn't work for me, it won't open. But I won't knock off a star for this. Instructions leave a lot to be desired. It doesn't outline what screws go where but that's easy to figure out on your own.

5 out of 5 eggsthis board rocks

Pros: easy over clocking from boot or with included software. xfast USB locks onto your devices and puts them in "turbo" mode. worked first boot and all night so far so good. idea and floppy connector for us with older peripherals.

Cons: none that I can see yet.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Have had no problems at all performance wise.

Cons: The board's slots could be organized better because my cables are a mess inside my case. The case and motherboard don't agree on where the cables should be going.

Other Thoughts: Case: Rosewill Blackhawk

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board for it's price - Always loved ASRock!

Pros: Has IDE controller - did not have to sacrifice old but working DVD burners! Plenty of SATA ports (not uncommon on new boards these days) and great price for its capability and reliability.

Cons: After being able to fix a very unusual issue when I first got the motherboard, NONE!

Other Thoughts: I have always loved ASRock as well as several other motherboard brands. This particular board, however (More accurately the BIOS), gave me a weird issue. I had put the whole machine together as I have many, MANY other desktop computers. When I installed Windows fresh on it everything seemed to go smoothly, until I went to install my graphics drivers. I have a Sapphire ATiRadeon HD 5830 to be exact and had no problems using it in my previous build. I went to install the driver for the card and the driver installed just fine like it always does (Same version driver as before, mind you). Restarted the computer and I was a bit baffled. I could not set AERO and my resolution did not auto switch like it should have by the driver and/or CCC. Checking the device manager I had found there to be two graphics adapters rather than just my 5830 and my 5830 reported a problem as the other adapter was the AMD 760G which is onboard. Wait a tick... this board isn't configured to use the on-chip graphics and there are no outputs to even use it so why am I seeing this? I disabled it in the device manager and rebooted to see what would happen. I was able to set my resolution and my card worked, but I still could not set AERO and the Win7 troubleshooter couldn't detect the problem. Yet, I was able to run all my OpenGL and Direct3D 9, 10 & 11 games. What's going on here? After thinking I might have to return the board I decided to try something. I was on BIOS version 1.20 and ASRock had a newer version (1.50 as of this post) on their page. I decided to give the BIOS update a go and IT WORKED!!! For the record I had tried changing many BIOS settings prior to the update to no avail. I have had no problems since I did the BIOS update so if you run into this the fix is updating your BIOS! Other than that crazy issue I am loving this MB!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, dependable

Pros: Just what I was looking for, too many really to list for the price it is a great pick if your on a budget.

Cons: None really has all the features more expensive boards have for a lot less.

Other Thoughts: can't beat the price, I ran Elder scrolls online without a hitch, installed windows 8 in less then 15 mins I think. I am also running 4.2 ghz, not even over clocked.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly!

Pros: It works great! I'm using an Athlon X2 250 am3 processor on mine and it runs smoothly. My friend has 2 of these motherboards on 2 computer and no complaints whatsoever. He is running a 8 core on one with watercooling and 6 core with the other. So he is the one that made me get it and I am 1000% happy with his and my decision of purchasing this motherboard.

Cons: There was this one time that I got a blue screen while playing Skyrim. Of course, I didn't save at that point. I was just messing with the x boot and seeing what it does so nothing to knock a egg off.

Other Thoughts: If you want a cheap am3+ motherboard, then get this one! I highly recommend it to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value!

Pros: Just what I needed for my windows 8 duel monitor touch screen system upgrade. Great Value for what you get. Easy to install and great layout. The extra boost software is nice, I originally was skeptical about its promised features. But the software did increase my hardware performance. Its software was also lite which means no extra junk ware. All in all great value for a top end single graphic card machine.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: Only thing is the lack of heat sinks over capacitors next to CPU. I am not using this to overclock much. I do not see it having any issues with heat at all.
