5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mini-ITX Motherboard

Pros: The motherboard has been working great for over a month and was a breeze to install in my Cooler Master Elite 110 case. The BIOS is really neat too since you can really customize your rig, including many overclocking settings for the enthusiasts out there.

Cons: The manual was not spectacular, clear, or particularly helpful. It took me about 5 minutes to figure out that the mSATA connector was on the bottom-side of the motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsReceived defective product, extremely unsatisfied.

Pros: couldnt find any as i was never able to use it.

Cons: the motherboard i received was defective, when powered on it would turn on and off several times before turning on fully for about 20 seconds. it will not show video signal even from the onboard graphics. I paid for a product in new, working condition but got something in broken conditon, so now i have to pay additional money and waste my time.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Motherboard

Pros: The board is packed with features and everything has worked that I have tried. It boots fast and has performed flawlessly in my view.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I bought this board and have been running it pretty much every day since last December. I built my own dedicated Steam Box with it, and it has seen far more use than either my PS3 or XBox 360. When I say dedicated I mean dedicated. It does not boot into the Window 7 UI at all. It boots directly to Steam Big Picture mode. I can go into a miminal windows desktop if I need to by launching the explorer.exe process with ctrl-alt-dlt. But I only ever do that to play the handful of Origin games that I own. It is essentially a game console. The key feature that I will try soon since I have upgraded to an i5-4690K from an i5-4670(non-K) is the overclocking ability. I used the internet flash option to download and install the latest firmware update for Devil's canyon. I've now had 4 days of burn in time with the new firmware and no problems have resulted. That's been my experience all around with this board since I got it in December. Maybe I've been lucky as far as defects go but I always thought that Asrock made decent products. Here are my system specs:

i5-4670 (non-k)
Noctua NH-L12 Cooler
Asrock Z87-E Mini-ITX
Gigabyte GTX 780 GHz Edition 3GB
Seasonic G-Series 750W (Gold)

1 out of 5 eggsStill no response from ASROCK

Pros: Good board when it worked, no problems that I experienced when the board was functioning.

Cons: This board failed two months after I received it. A year later I still haven't heard back from RMA Asrock. Board is now a few weeks out of warranty. Save yourself time and money.

1 out of 5 eggsGood and Bad

Pros: All features included, mSata Wifi 5Ghz 867Mbps low power consumption with 256MB dedicated GPU + shared video memory.
Which is not bad for a gaming PC.

Cons: I am so proud of ASRock has a well designed of this board but bad luck for me (maybe) i got the defective board. I recently ordered this board from Newegg 2 weeks ago but didn't have time to put it together. Well, finally i got it up and running 2 days ago everything gone well after OS and drivers installed correctly, ect.. Like i usually do a "burn in" overnight. Wake up in the morning still see it running (which is good) i was happy and shut it down then go to work. I got work off (after 8hrs) and try to enjoy my new mini itx pc, i turned it on it seems to work fine then suddently reboot (no reason) while i am doing research and email (not even play game). I logged back on again and tried to finish what i was doing, the computer shut down period. (Weird), i tried to turn it back on it won't turn on, try to remove RAM, test difference PSU...ect... it just dead ... i am very upset because it was fine 2 days ago, the performance is so good and i was happy with it. I still don't know what causing it or maybe i was bad luck with a defective board. I have to contact Newegg to request RMA, but i still want this board so i chose to replace. Hopefully, i won't be disappoint it after replacement, otherwise i have to say "GoodBye" to ASRock.

Other Thoughts: Well, i don't know. Defective Mobo what can i say. The board has a well designed I won't complaint. But compare to Asus, i never had a problem just because Asus don't have mSata like it supposed to be. I still want this ASRock board, i just hope the replacement one will be more stable. I should not upgrade the latest bios but i don't think BETA bios would kill the mobo. Please advice.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, Affordable.

Pros: Full featured, mSATA port, AC wi-fi.

Cons: Wi-fi card is eh.

Other Thoughts: Bought this because it seemed like the best bang for the buck. I was a little bit worried, because a lot of reviewers had issues right out of the box, but none here. Plugged everything in, mounted it inside my case, and it booted on the first shot. The main reason I picked this board over anything else was the mSATA connector on the back of the board. I did have to change settings in the BIOS to get it to boot to the SSD first, but once I did that it booted and recognized my HDD with no issues. The BIOS seems pretty good, I had an ASUS board in my last build, but all of their z87 ITX boards were just too expensive, so transitioning was not an issue. I haven't used any of the overclocking features, because there is no need for my uses, but nice to have. No real complaints about the layout either, it worked just fine in my case.

My only complaint is that either the card or the provided antenna is not amazing. My old ASUS PC-10 card got better reception in the exact same place. Not sure if it's just my board, or what.

4 out of 5 eggsA good Mini-ITX choice

Pros: Not many mini-ITX Z87 come with mSATA
Feature-rich and definitely worth the price.

Cons: The only thing that constantly bugs me is the USB issue. Sometimes my keyboard and mouse freeze upon boot and I'd be stuck at the Windows 7 login screen. I couldn't find a way to reproduce or fix the issue. It comes randomly and goes away randomly (after angrily reboot numerous times). I updated to the new BIOS with USB compatibility patch, but no help.
The other thing is that some USB device/driver is constantly consuming CPU cycle. I would always see about 50% utilization on one core of my 4670K. This issues goes away if I put the computer to sleep and then wake it up. Again, I don't know why and I don't know how to fix it. The system would consume about 10W less power without this issue.
I'm not 100% percent sure it's a motherboard problem. It could very well be software, but still annoying nonetheless. I run multiple computers, all with very similar software setup (Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and pretty much the same set of applications), but only ASRock gives me this problem.

Other Thoughts: Other than the USB issue it's a very good board and I'm pretty happy with it. It's good that ASRock has become much more active in recent years.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the USB keyboard and mouse issue, please set the UEFI BIOS default.
Plug keyboard and mouse to USB 2.0 ports (grey).

4 out of 5 eggsOk MB

Pros: Good placement of connectors when installed in a Streacom F7C case except with a nanoPSU that makes things a bit tight. Good MB for a InWin BP671 case. Overall the motherboard works ok in a HTPC build

Cons: No Bluetooth support under linux as of 5/2014. HDMI Video out causes my Toshiba 47" TV to mess up the picture at random times. Turning the TV off and then on is the only way to fix it.

Other Thoughts: The motherboard is working great so far in a Streacom case as a HTPC. I'd buy it again but use it in a InWin BP671 case if I could live without the Bluetooth in linux and the wonky HDMI out that sometimes happens.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst mITX Build

Pros: So far so good, i have a 4770k oc'ed at 4.2ghz cooled by an Enermax Liqtech 240. The UEFI is easily navigable and adjustable. The layout of the board is perfect for my Corsair Obsidian 250D, which allows me to manage the cables and avoid clutter (compared to other mITX boards I've played with).

Cons: The drivers in the disc it came with didn't want to work for whatever reason, so I had to go through the hassle of downloading the LAN driver on another system in order to install it on this one to download the remaining drivers.

Other Thoughts: Just got the board a week ago, so I'll update if necessary.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For future reference, the LAN driver can be download under UEFI BIOS.
To do so, please plugged the LAN cable with internet ready to mainboard.
Plug the USB flash drive to USB 2.0 port (grey).
Enter UEFI BIOS, Tools, Easy Driver Installer to download LAN driver and LiveSetup utility.
Run the LAN driver under Windows to install.

2 out of 5 eggs1st time ASRock disappoints me

Pros: non yet, can't get passed POST.

Cons: We used the Intel RAID BIOS to stripe 5 SSD's and planned to use it as our boot drive. But when we start up the pc, the mobo is stuck at POST, and restarting does not do anything. I have to disconnect all of the hard drives, start up the pc and everything is fine. Connect the SSD's to the ports on the mobo, and we're back to the same problem. This has happened with 2 of 3 motherboards that we purchased from Newegg. Called support at ASRock and no help at all. So now i am stuck with 2 motherboards that i can't use because the tech guy at ASRock told me to use different SSD's, and i can't return them for a refund, which is actually stated on the item's page so im not complaining about not getting a refund, just that we bought the boards and had problems right out of the box and we are stuck with them. What's is more upsetting is that i have always received great customer service from ASRock for years when we came across problems with older mobos. But im going to try getting a hold of them again and hopefully i get a different technician on the phone.

Other Thoughts: I can't really recommend the board to anyone because i haven't really had the chance to play around with it because of the getting stuck at POST. ASRock support rep that i talked to didn't offer any help or advise on my issue, but just told me to get different SSD's. But i won't give up yet. Im going to try ASRock support again and hopefully ill get a different rep and we can take care of the mobos that are just sitting around here.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please connect the drives to SATA3_0, 1, 2 as following for RAID configuration.
Enter to check if connected drives are detected by mainboard at UEFI BIOS, Advanced, Storage Configuration.
However, there’s intermittently detection issue between Intel 8 series chipset and old SandForce controller that may consider using newer SSD drives.
In addition, visit link below for RAID installation guide.
