3 out of 5 eggsGood overall board, but one major issue with win 8/8.1

Pros: - This has been a good motherboard for the price
- Extremely easy to overclock and has a clean interface.
- Full feature set, really don't need more than what you get here.

Cons: In my experience, the Killer E2200 LAN had a very bad memory leak with win 8/8.1. There's no "official" fix besides going into your registry and editing some values. Without knowing this issue ahead of time you'll find your computer randomly stuttering and hanging when you're not really doing anything intensive.

2 out of 5 eggsASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer

Pros: -Most of the parts are easy to attach
-Easy to put into case

Cons: -Some of the connections are a bit unclear
-ASRock support is impossible to reach for troubleshooting
-Rebate still has to be processed

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my first time building a PC. It works fine except my PC will randomly not turn on. I would sit around mashing my power button for up to 30 minutes sometimes. I have tried shorting the circuits on the motherboard but it does not work. I tried contacting tech support through phone and email but I have yet to receive a response. I have resorted to leaving my computer on sleep mode. I probably will never buy a ASRock product again.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsCould be improved (says Clint Eastwood)

Pros: Lots of PCIe slots

Cons: No eSata, No mSata, blinking sleep LED annoying. Forward facing Sata connectors not helpful. No built-in (really?) Mobo speaker.

Other Thoughts: Really bought this board for the many PCIe slots and zero outdated PCI. I will not be pushing this board nor use for gaming. At first the narrower than standard ATX size as others mention seems unnecessary until you have to hook up the Satas, because they are horizontally mounted one may need the extra room up front after all.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

Thank you for your purchase and review.
Unfortunately, this model does not come with eSATA and mSATA option.
For more information, please visit mainboard specification at link " ".
For the LED, please set Deep Sleep to enable at UEFI BIOS, Advanced, Chipset Configuration, Deep Sleep [Enable], save and exit.
If you have any technical issues please contact us at We will assist you shortly.

1 out of 5 eggsNever again...Bad, uncaring support

Pros: NONE

Cons: Cannot get hot plugging of HDDs to work, and ASRock support does not care! All pablomedina at ASRock Customer Service cares is that I understand the difference between hot swap and hot plug.

I sent ASRock support this message: "Yes, I've gone into the BIOS (the latest version that is provided: Z87 Killer P1.10) and checked my settings. It's:
SATA Mode Selection: RAID
SATA Aggressive Link Power Management: Disabled
Dynamic Storage Accelerator: Enabled
and for each and every SATA connections (SATA3_0 to SATA3_5):
External SATA: Disabled
Hot Plug: Enabled
SATA Device Type: Solid State Drive or Hard Disk Driver.

So, with these settings, why can't I hot-swap the hard drives? I know that I can't hot-swap the two SSD's that I have in a RAID 1 configuration on SATA3_0 and SATA3_1, which are my boot drives with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on it. But shouldn't I be able to hot swap the other hard drives that I use for data only?"

It turns out that I should have used the words hot plug instead of hot swap, because "pablomedina" replied with this email: "Hot Plug and Hot Swap Functions for SATA / SATAII HDDs

This motherboard supports Hot Plug and Hot Swap functions for SATA / SATAII Devices.


What is Hot Plug Function?

If the SATA / SATAII HDDs are NOT set for RAID configuration, it is called “Hot Plug” for the action to insert and remove the SATA / SATAII HDDs while the system is still power-on and in working condition.

However, please note that it cannot perform Hot Plug if the OS has been installed into the SATA / SATAII HDD.

What is Hot Swap Function?

If SATA / SATAII HDDs are built as RAID1 or RAID 5 then it is called “Hot Swap” for the action to insert and remove the SATA / SATAII HDDs while the system is still power-on and in working condition.

ASRock America Support"

That's it. Nothing else in his reply. No help of any sort.

So I replied, "Huh? I don't care whether it's called Hot Plug or Hot Swap. Why can't I insert and remove any of my HDDs while this system is still powered on and in working condition? These are the latest SATAIII HDDs and SSDs, so why not since your board supposedly supports those functions?"

And his reply was, "When you said , you do not care , that tells me you really do not know anything about what is described below or you have no idea what the words means .

I am sorry , get someone who really can take care reading and understanding the difference between those two functions and how they work."

Once again, that's all and no help whatsoever

Will be going back to Gigabyte, since all the systems I've built with their boards have worked for me.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy ASRock!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsvery good for the price

Pros: All the connectors you could ever hope for.
Very fast boot
mostly good software
more usb 3.0s than you will ever use
plenty of fan connectors
power management options from everything to three pin fans to your mouse to integrated graphics.
system browser shows information about everything attached to the MB using a picture of the MB. pretty cool
charges my iphone in about 30-40 minutes.

Cons: downward facing connector = unusable if you plan on having a PSU
three fan connectors are in the center of the MB
the rapid boot software is horrible. when you turn off the computer, it only restarts. then after about 5 minutes of being on, it just turns off without warning. i uninstalled it immediately.
f-stream tuning does not appear to save OC settings or CPU fan speed settings. bios does save them however
only 2 different size PCIE slots

Other Thoughts: sort of a hybrid mini ATX and full ATX size
be careful plugging in the 24 pin power connector
of all of the software, i only ever use f stream and very rarely killer network

2 out of 5 eggsKiller Ethernet = scam

Pros: It was red, user friendly bios, great build quality,

Cons: Killer Ethernet is aweful. I play League a lot and I lag more with this mother board than my last.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's great. The killer ether net and the red color was the real reason why I bought this mobo. When I got this thing and got it up and running I started to have a worse time on LoL than playing ranked with bronze V players.
