  • newegg HDMI-In: The Smart Way to Connect Your Devices Tired of constantly switching devices to connect to your one and only monitor? From now on, just connect the monitor to your motherboard, and connect your secondary device (such as a PS3 or Xbox) to the motherboard’s HDMI-In port. With HDMI-In, users may conveniently toggle between the computer’s screen and the secondary device’s screen with a hotkey, or even use their secondary device without powering on the computer.
  • newegg Premium Gold Caps This motherboard uses Premium Gold Caps that are 100% made in Japan. These solid capacitors are sleek, high-gloss caps with a premium gold coating that represents its long-lasting durability and ultra-stable performance.
  • newegg 8+2 Power Phase Design with Digi Power Designed with a 8+2 Power Phase design, this motherboard features sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Hence, this motherboard offers unmatched overclocking capabilities with the best system stability, plus enhanced performance with the lowest temperature for advanced gamers and extreme overclockers. It also discards traditional analog power and uses a next-generation digital PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) design. This provides CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced.
  • newegg High-Density Glass-Fabric PCB What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water: H2O, humidity, or whatever you’d like to call it. And even though you do not see the water, there actually may be lots of excessive moisture in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the Wicked Witch of the West, but it dies of short circuiting. Luckily, ASRock has a new High-Density Glass-Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
  • newegg X-Boost Brilliantly designed for smart overclocking, ASRock X-Boost Technology is able to unleash the hidden power of your CPUs. Simply press “X” when turning on the PC, X-Boost will automatically overclock the relative components to get a performance boost of up to 15.77%! With the smart X-Boost, overclocking CPU can become a nearly one-button process.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Features

Pros: - Supports 4 displays
- HDMI input
- Easy to use BIOS
- Plethora of ports and slots

Cons: - Not many fan headers
- PCI extra power input is in an awkward position
- Brown PCB doesn't look as good as black would

Other Thoughts: This motherboard has a large selection of ports and slots. It can support 4 display outputs, and an HDMI input at the same time. I doubt the HDMI input will ever be used, but hey, it's there. It has a good selection of PCI slots to support all your add-in card needs. The BIOS is good looking and easy to use, but not the most intuitive for navigation. There are three things I wish I could change about this board though. Firstly, I would like a few more fan headers. You can never have enough fans. Two, I would relocate the PCI power jack to the bottom of the board rather than having it impossible to prettily route a cable to in the middle of the board. And third, I would change the brown PCB out for a black one to complete the sleek look of the board.

Overall, this is a good board in this price range. I would have no problems putting this in another computer.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Board Needs Better RAID Documentation

Pros: 8 SATA ports with RAID. No issues once configured. See other thoughts below.

Cons: I had a problem where the RAID utility would only see the first four SATA ports. I opened up a ticket with ASRock and was told I needed to replace the board. I did and still had the same problem. I then received the correct response here on Newegg and a second email from support also with the correct info. While the first bad response cost me a lot of time, shipping an item back, purchasing another, running out to get thermal paste, etc. I am still giving the board 5 stars because the board wasn't at fault and is working fine. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: From ASRock in order to see all 8 SATA ports in the RAID Utility:
Please disable SATA IDE Combined Mode in BIOS, Advanced, Storage Configuration, SATA IDE Combined Mode [Disable\, save and exit.

This makes the last 4 SATA ports show up in the RAID utility. This info should also be with the RAID utility documentation.

I have all pairs in RAID 1: 2-SSDs 120GB, 2-2TB drives, 2-1TB drives and 1-LG DVD

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: Great features, UEFI BIOS USB3 ports rear and front. This motherboard was for my friends computer which I assembled. I experienced no difficulty in installing the motherboard. I booted up first time and have no issues so far. I like dual BIOS and LED display. All components appear to be good quality. This is the my fourth AsRock motherboard and so far have no problem with any one of them.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have a spacious mid tower ATX case therefore had no issue with rear facing SATA ports however in a tight installation this could be a problem, in such case top facing SATA port will be easier to handle.

2 out of 5 eggsSATA Hot Swap Does Not Work

Pros: Have not had enough experience to find pros.

Cons: Hot swap for SATA drives is specifically called out on the spec sheets for this motherboard. It does not work in Windows 8.1. The drives show as standard drives and will not hot swap. I contacted tech support and they were no help in their first response and would not respond to follow up emails. At this point the motherboard is of little use due to the lack of hot swap ability.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Hot Swap and Hot Plug functions are different.
Hot swap works under RAID1, RAID5 (mirror) configuration and Hot Plug works for data drives (non OS drive) with AHCI mode without turn off the system power.
If you have any technical issues please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

Thank you
