1 out of 5 eggsFound a Lemon

Pros: Worked...(Sorta)

Cons: Poor placement for Graphics Card, doesn't support large cards well.
Poor placement for the 24Pin
Terminal Failure with RAM right from the get go.

Other Thoughts: I had a large amount of problems with this card almost right from the start. From the awkward placement of the larger PCI-E slot for graphics cards to the 24 Pin being extremely close to it.
...The biggest flaw I fond with this however, was a terminal RAM slots error that left me starting with random restarts and ultimately a consistent "triple beep" of doom.

3 out of 5 eggsAero Problem fix

Pros: AsRock

Cons: Random boot fails, drops usb 3.0 ports

Other Thoughts: Have seen issues with aero and had this problem myself. do a could boot, no aero, restart and its fine. After several power supplies and video cards found out this is a known issue with piledriver processors (FX series). MS has hotfixes for bulldozer problems (had another issue I can't recall) research KB2645594 and KB2646060, they solved my problems

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Reliable after 6+ months so far. FX-6300 easily hits 3.5GHz

Cons: Didn't spend enough on motherboard. First every other time I turn it on, it doesn't boot - I have to press the reset button and have it count to 10 for boot failure before booting. When it starts up with an SDD first time it's under 30 seconds. More of an annoyance. "X-boost" doesn't work (it works but it doesn't seem stable and not a boost during games or rendering). I think an investment into Intel might be worth it but if you get AMD at least get the mobo with Wi-Fi and a newer, friendlier Bios to support overclocking. I'm scared to try any voltage. Otherwise my fx-6300 hits 3.5Ghz all the time.

1 out of 5 eggsjunk

Pros: uses usb3

Cons: only con is it was an open box and when I went to assemble the sata ports were ALL dead I spent so much time trying to figure out the problem before contacting asrock and they offerd to rma the board, I just would be very iffy on this brand of boards in the future I personally will stick with Gigabyte or ASUS

5 out of 5 eggsNo complaints yet

Pros: Reliable, good chipset, high-quality manufacturing, looks great.

At its price it's a great deal.

Cons: Lacks some expandability, but it's perfect for the needs of its end user.

Other Thoughts: I put it in a machine for a friend with very little tech knowledge and have heard only glowing reviews of the the finished product. If you plan on expanding your machine down the line you may want to pay a little extra for some extra capacity but if you're going to box it up and drive it 'til it quits look no further.

1 out of 5 eggsSuch a headache!

Pros: Ugg.

Cons: USB posts randomly fail. PCIe slot randomly fails. Board refuses to bost randomly. Brand new build runs like garbage. Randomly windows 7 won't even boot aero themes. Games run like garbage randomly. Videos are choppy. Thought it was the video card so I RMA it back to new egg only to wait for the new card to come in and find out that it was the mobo the whole time. Tired of sending back parts. Tired of waiting on
RMAs. Going on 3 weekends wasted not being able to use the computer.

I'll never buy asrock again.

3 out of 5 eggsSkip this Board

Pros: Has decent specs. Easy to mod bios for slic.

Cons: Randomly fails to boot. USB 3.0 ports loose,Have tried several sticks, always drops them- end up using the 2.0 ports as they 3.0 are totally unreliable.

Other Thoughts: Have been using Asrock almost exclusively for years. First one to ever disappoint me. Had processor OC'd (black edition 6 core) from 3.5 to 4.3 stable, but have backed down to 4.0 because of random boot issues. Even at stock settings board sometimes fails to boot. USB 3.0 ports feel loose when you put a stick in and board always drops them mid transfer. First time Asrock has ever disappointed me. Not enough of a problem to make it worth returning. but can't recommend this board.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mobo, probably the last modern mobo that supports a 5.25 floppy drive

Pros: DDR 3 memory, SATA 3, USB 3, legacy ATA133 IDE, legacy floppy connector 3.5 & 5.25 floppy drive both supported.

This is probably the last modern mobo that supports a 5.25 floppy drive. I put together a system running win 7 with a 5.25 floppy drive, it still able to read 5.25 floppy disks from 22 years ago.

Cons: Watch out for those Asmedia SATA 3 drivers, I tried various versions but not all are stable. I currently have v1.4.1.0 for Asmedia 106x SATA controller, it has been stable for the past 6 months.

3 out of 5 eggsNoise Noise Noise

Pros: Good Price, does the job when i was wanting to utilize my 6300 FX Core. Just what i needed for the right price.

Cons: Speakers on board pick up noise from what im assuming is the rest of the mobo. No fixing it, have to spend a few bucks for some sound card to get rid of the problem. Meh.

Other Thoughts: Average. Although I got what i expected minus the on board sound issue.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Board has a lot of nice features for a reasonable price. Seemed to detect all of the hardware and peripherals correctly.

Cons: This board is difficult to set up because the manual is vague about some critical areas. Only the SATA Devices were listed as possible boot sources so you can't use the ATA133 port to connect to a bootable dvd. Not mentioned in the manual. Finally put an SATA DVD, which was listed as a boot device but, even though I selected the DVD device as boot device it was never able to read the driver dvd or the Windows 7 dvd. Once you booted the system, got the dvd to be shown in the bootable device list and select the dvd as the boot device it seemed to pause a few minutes and read the driver dvd. However, it died there and showed the message to select the correct boot device?? Tied sata0, sata1. Wasted a day of my time. The board works but I am unable to install software.

Other Thoughts: Be more specific about installation options in the user manual.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you
ATA 133 IDE port can be bootable.
Please connect the drive to port (refer to the instruction of your IDE device vendor).
Enter BIOS to check mainboard has detected the drive at BIOS, Advanced, Storage Configuration (IDE1 Master or Slave).
Restart the system if mainboard is detected the IDE drive.
Press F11 repeatedly to bring Boot Menu once system is started.
Select the IDE drive to boot (required bootable CD/DVD disc).
