5 out of 5 eggsBest ITX Haswell board

Pros: Excellent quality/reliability.
sub-$100.
Decent support/BIOS updates.
Overclocks well.

Cons: Lacks the software sophistication of its Asus rival.
SATA connectors in center of the board, not on an edge.
Other boards have 8 USB ports on rear IO, this one has 6.

Other Thoughts: I've been running this board since October without an issue. I have it mildly overclocked to 4GHz with an i5-4670k. It runs XMP profiles without any stability issues.

Basically this board renders its competitive offering from Asus (H87I-Plus ITX) irrelevent on many fronts. I own both boards (the Asus is in my HTPC) so I can compare them side-by-side. The Asus offers one compelling advantage: it's layout. The connectors are all more plentiful and in better locations.

But that's it. The ASRock H87M-ITX has a better audio codec, less buggy NIC, and the color scheme is more professional looking. The software is for the most part, identical to Asus Ai Suite, but the fan control curves aren't as tweakable unless you go into the BIOS (at which point they are just as customizable as the Asus)

The nail in the coffin is the price. The ASRock board can be had for 20% less.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC Board

Pros: Small, great features, so far a solid board. Its running a Core i3-4130T, 8GB G.Skill ECO RAM, and Hauppage 2250 TV Tuner, and Windows 8.1 Pro w/ Media Center Plex and XBMC run well on this as well.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Would buy this again, even for a workstation pc. Very solid, installed it, plugged everything in and turned it on, its been rock solid since.

5 out of 5 eggsIdeal HTPC board

Pros: I was a tad hesitant to go with the new Haswell boards for an OpenElec XBMC build since the drivers aren't all that prevelant. I'm VERY glad that I did. Audio and video are a major improvement over my previous set up.

Highly reccommended.

I am running XBMC Frodo 12.2 on OpenElec build Generic OSS i386 Version:3.2.4.

The BIOS, may be one of the easiest I have ever used for setting up a system.

Coupled with an SSD, cold boot time is about 9 seconds into XBMC menu. (splash screen disabled)

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsLittle ITX that does

Pros: Boards are really straight forward and easy to get set up. Overall performance is fine a non over clocked setup which I was after for two new workstations in a office. Some I7's and Crucial Black Ballistix modules with XMP and WD Velociraptor drives, and you got your self a pretty potent machine even for Business use.

Cons: Only thing that bothers me about these boards and it not so much a con . When doing a install Win7 X64 you have to boot into safe mode sometimes during a install of the USB 3.0 drivers and then delete all the USB root hubs. I have lost use of the mouse and keyboard on this board and numerous Intel USB 3.0 boards after doing a driver install. Only after deleting the USB root Hub and letting the operating system redetect everything was the issue resolved. Mouse and keyboard was usable again. There was no setting in the bios that affected this result. ASRock even release a bios update to help this issue but its really just a nuisance

Other Thoughts: Since Intel is getting out of the MB market I have to start using other boards for office platforms and this board is fitting the bill nicely. I just hope the durability is there.

I have build over 500 pc's using only Intel branded boards and only had 5 that were DOA or some other type of issues out of the box. Most of these Core2 PC are still running today but are really starting to show there age now. I need to find a viable replacement and these might be the answer. The Intel NUC's are also nice but they do have limits on what they can be used for. I just don't like the HDMI video on these. The connectors are mini HDMI and will not take any abuse.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Stable, well made board, works great with Linux Mint (including USB 3.0), optical SPDIF

Cons: I wish it had one more USB 2.0 header since my case isn't USB 3.0 compatible.

Other Thoughts: I'm loving my upgrade to Haswell for my HTPC. Much faster than my old Sandybridge system.

4 out of 5 eggsHas good software and Cheap...er

Pros: ITX with just what you need
Price at time was the best from the competition ($100)
Overclocks K CPUs
4 SATA 3.0 headers (All I'd ever need)
PCI 3.0 lane
Decent Soundcard

Cons: Not z87 chipset
Still quite expensive at $100, its the form factor premium
Only 2 fan headers
Bios lacks NorthBridge & Bus tweaking (no overclocking on Non-K CPUs)

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend spending the extra $20 for the Gigabyte currently on sale as it has the Z87 chipset + built in Wi-Fi and some small tweaks. I'm still not sure if that board has non-K overclocking ability as this doesnt. I wasn't looking for a big OC, 4-4.4 is the most id want to go, just nice to have the option.

The north bridge heatsinks is extremely small, and thus explains why there are no tweaks for it. Bios have alright features for a small board and Asrock has some cool software like ultra fast startup. Nevertheless some things are not quite like the Asus AI suite but its a cheaper board.


Side Note: If you have 1st time boot problems, check RAM, would only boot with 1 stick, and not the other, in the first slot only. Asrock tech support is e-mail only, no phone number to call to speak to live person. Keep in mind.

My System:
i5-4570 2x4GB 1600 RAM (Patriot)
Radeon 7950 (MSI) 500watt Corsair PSU (CX500M)
3TB Seagate Vertex 4 128gb

4 out of 5 eggsawesome but has a minor ram issue

Pros: best feature:
nonZ - oc = ability to overclock without z87 chipset.
- got my 4670k to 4.3 with A-tune. Runs on the higher temp side so left it at 4.0 with noctua heatsink. Inside SG06 case.

Loads extremely fast- less than 10secs.
16gb crucial ballistix tactical (8x2) lpm
Plextor 128gb m5 proXtreme

Honestly best bang for the buck mini ITX board if you want a mild overclock.

Cons: This is my only dilemma and I hope an ASRock representative will chime in.

When i first started this build i used a single 8gb crucial ballistix tactical ram stick. ran at 1600 frequency perfectly. I then added another 8gb stick = 16gb and at 1600 frequency the os became unstable and kept crashing (blue screen of death). I declocked the ram to 1333 and all is well now. Any reason why it wont run at 1600 dual channel reliably? thanks.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Cool bios options, nice fan control. Excellent being able to boot to UEFI screen, and do BIOS update before a drive is even in it (just plug into network and boot). Stable, works with secure boot (Win8), boots FAST, and no oddball quirks. The layout of the USB headers, SATA and front panel connectors was perfect for my build, made for tidy cable management which is ALWAYS a challenge in ITX boxes.

Cons: Only problem I had was that the nifty UEFI utility to push drivers for Win8 install to a USB stick required the DVD for RAID drivers, but I didn't use a DVD on this build. I just copied them on another pc that had a dvd drive.

Other Thoughts: Running this board in a cooler master elite 120 ITX, with an intel i5-4570, 2 x 8GB crucial ballistix low profile ram (N82E16820148663), evga GTX 760 superclocked, antec high current 850w modular power supply, 1tb wd black, 120gb intel ssd for smart response caching. plays EVERYTHING on ultra, no hiccups. Intel's SSD caching really works nicely, it's almost as fast as having a 1tb ssd.

5 out of 5 eggsReview Update to "Kind of Wonky"

Pros: Same as my other review. Plus, no more wonkiness!

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: I don't know how to edit my previous review so I will have to write another one. AsRock could not figure out what was wrong with the board,so they had me replace it. That didn't fix the problem. I started out with G.Skill Sniper (F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2). This was listed on AsRock's compatibilty list. When this memory wouldn't work with the BIOS set to Auto in the memory timings (the wonky period), I manually set it down to 1333 (this is 1600 memory). Then things stared to work OK. Not as fast as I thought it should, but at least the video was holding stable.
Still not satisfied (who really is when things don't work the way they are supposed to?), I got 8 gigs of Crucial Ballistix (BLS2KIT4G31609DS1S00) and replaced the G.Skill. 2 things happened - Firstly, this RAM fit under my CPU cooler. It doeasn't have any heat sinks sticking up past the green pcb. Secondly, my PC was a frisky colt trying to get me to drop the reins so it could run free. It is FAST and snappy! I can't believe the difference. I did reset the BIOS to auto detect when I put the Crucial in place. This RAM isn't even on AsRock's tested compatibility list. This is a night and day difference.
With a SSD boot drive and a i5-4570, the G.Skill 1600 tuned down to 1333 (so it would run) gave me the following WEI: Processor - 7.5, RAM - 7.5, Graphics (using onboard) - 5.9, Hard Disk - 7.9. After the memory swap I got the following: Processor - 7.6, RAM - 7.7, Graphics (using onboard) - 6.7, Hard Disk - 7.9.
The only sour note in all of this is I collected the parts for this build over time and the return window for the memory had expired by the time I got the build together.
