Pros: SATA ports amount

Cons: 1) Will not recognize disk drive unless I go through device manager
2) Can not install new windows on blank drive because it refuses to recognize any form of mouse or keyboard
3) click and peripherals buttons and system powers on

Other Thoughts: I am not happy with this board. If I used my computer more often I may have noticed the problems sooner, but I don't. Worst purchase of my life

3 out of 5 eggsGood Mobo but a misleading feature

Pros: -pretty good quality
-pretty easy to set up
-good price compare to competition

Cons: The main reason I bought this is for this one feature.. but I wish I researched more about it. It was never clear until you ask people how it works.

Basically I was excited for the HDMI in switch feature. But BE WARN, you can only use it if you are going to use the integrated GPU. Like your monitor is connected through the mobo DVI port.

It will not work if you have a discrete GPU (Radeon, Nvidia) I was so disappointed when I found out as I already had it built. I wish Asrock can somehow override this but I doubt it.
Lesson learned, research first and don't always trust how they market their features.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy this motherboard.

Pros: It worked ok for 6 months. It would freeze about every month or so while in BIOS or during post even after applying the latest firmware updates. I shrugged it off until poop hit the fan. One of the SATA ports went out. :(

Cons: Had to RMA this motherboard after 6 months. One of the SATA ports went out. The RMA process from the time I shipped it till the time I got it back took 23 days. Furthermore, after getting it back It would intermittently freeze no matter the OS. Performed extensive troubleshooting and Identified the motherboard being the sole culprit.

Other Thoughts: I know this motherboard has a rich feature set compared to other motherboards around the same price range but trust me, stay away. Don't think it can happen to you.

I recommend Asus or Gigabyte. ASRock motherboards just don't feel right.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. All replacement mainboards have been stress tested to assure that they're working before shipped.
For the freeze issue, Please clear the CMOS.
Set the UEFI BIOS default.
Check the CPU and system are not overheating.
Test with single memory module, switching another memory if problem still persist.
If you have any technical issues please contact us at We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

3 out of 5 eggsCheck OS Compatibility first

Pros: price - value for money
dual intel nic
vt-d support

Cons: Lack of OS Support
Does not natively support any of MS professional OS or their derivatives - Will not run Server 2008, 2008R2, 2012, 2012R2, Windows home server ... etc.

Intel NICs are the limited, consumer versions with limited driver support.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to run my home business server on (needs to run virtual machines for exchange server, linux (hadoop cluster) as well as serve as a file server and htpc. (I know - strange - but i only want 1 pc to run 24/7).

When Asrock said the board supports win 7, 8 and 8.1, I wrongly assumed that it would support the (kernel identical) server versions. I was wrong. The Asrock driver installer only installs drivers on the non server versions. With the exception of the nics, drivers for all of the hardware can be downloaded manually and installed. This presents a small problem - no nics!

So, you have to install an extra nic to download the drivers and then install them manually.

Then you can download the intel nic drivers for win 7 ir 8 and hack them so they will install. (you also have to disable integrity checking).

To make a long story short - you can get it too work, but ... i would rather do other things.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

Thank you for your purchase and review. Unfortunately, mainboard does not support server OS since it is for desktop.
However, we do have server boards.
