  • 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 may actually 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 from 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 All Solid Capacitor Design ASRock is determined to use high-quality materials to build the best motherboards, that's why all the capacitors on this motherboard are built with 100% solid capacitors. These solid capacitors bring long-lasting durability and ultra-stable performance.
  • 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 the CPU becomes a nearly one-button process.
  • newegg Easy Driver Installer For users who don’t have an optical disk drive to install the drivers from our support CD, Easy Driver Installer is a handy tool in the UEFI. It installs the LAN driver to your system via a USB storage device, then downloads and installs the other required drivers automatically through the Internet – absolutley no CD or optical disk drive required!
  • newegg ASRock APP Shop The ASRock APP Shop is designed for your convenience. It provides various apps and support software for users to download. You can easily optimize your system, and keep your motherboard up to date, with the ASRock APP Shop.

1 out of 5 eggsWOULD NOT RECOMMEND ANYTHING ASROCK.

Pros: -WORKED GREAT FOR 3 MONTHS, THEN DVI PORT DIED.
-WORKED GREAT FOR 1 MONTH ON VGA PORT, THEN VGA PORT DIED.

Cons: WORKED WITH ASROCK CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS VIA EMAIL TROUBLESHOOTING, TO NO AVAIL. THEY FINALLY GAVE ME RMA #, SO I SENT THE BOARD BACK (THIS WAS ABOUT 1.5 MONTHS AGO). I DID RECEIVE CONFIRMATION THAT THEY RECEIVED THE BOARD ABOUT 1 MONTH AGO, AND HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING SINCE, AND THE ASROCK RMA SITE LISTS THE STATUS AS "PROCESSING" (WHICH HASN'T CHANGED IN 1 MONTH).

Other Thoughts: THIS BOARD WAS USED FOR MY MOTHER'S BUILD, AND SHE HAS NOW GONE ALMOST 3 MONTHS WITHOUT A PC. TODAY SHE FINALLY GAVE UP AND TOLD ME TO ORDER A NEW BOARD FOR HER.

-ALTHOUGH CUSTOMER SERVICE REP WAS COURTEOUS AND PATIENT HELPING ME TROUBLESHOOT, NEITHER OF US COULD DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM.

-THE RMA DEPARTMENT IS A JOKE. I HAD TO PAY FOR SHIPPING THE BOARD TO THEM, AND AFTER ONE MONTH OF THEM CONFIRMING THAT THEY RECEIVED IT AND EVERYTHING IS IN ORDER, THEY STILL HAVE YET TO SEND A REPLACEMENT.

I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING "ASROCK" AGAIN.

3 out of 5 eggsWanted to like it.

Pros: If the board worked 100%, it would be great for a FM2+ setup.

Cons: I had problems with new bad ram at first with the build involving this board, the sound was not right so I hoped it was the ram issue. Fixed the ram issue, everything was then great... except the sound. :( Bad codec, ground or capacitor... whatever it is, was unbearable and I have RMA'd the board.
Replaced it with its big brother/sister the FM2A88x extreme 6+... Very happy!!! Same board, more options and a much better sound setup. Sound is comparable to a decent dedicated card.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid & stable Windows 10 board

Pros: Paired with a AMD A10-5800K Trinity Quad-Core 3.8 GHz (AD580KWOHJBOX) APU, it's driving a solid, stable, and fast Win10 machine. Handling a dual-monitor configuration without a graphics card (NON-Gaming rig). Plenty of USB3 ports for my usage, easily updatable BIOS. No complaints at this point.

Cons: The usual flimsy I/O panel cover

Other Thoughts: Got for a great deal; wanted m.2 compatibility, but this machine is a great performer.

2 out of 5 eggsElectrical Feedback Everywhere

Pros: Easy install and has lots of SATA ports

Cons: There is audible electrical feedback that is unbearably annoying. Tried two operating systems and both had the same feedback coming through the headphones.

Other Thoughts: If I could get the feedback issue fixed, this board would be just what I needed.

2 out of 5 eggsProblem Persists

Pros: Same as previous Review

Cons: Installing AsRocks All in one utility had been installed prior to ASrocks response to my review to install it from their website.

Other Thoughts: Now have power to front ports but not recognized and no data! Had previously installed the software indicated from AsRock ! website. Then installed from included DVD and viola!

3 out of 5 eggsJust 1 darn'd problem

Pros: Lots of Features:
FM2+ socket with USB3 and SATA III.
- Lots of SATA ports.
- UEFI BIOS. Updated BIOS to latest online!
- XMP selectable from BIOS. Extensive tweaking options in
- 2x 4-pin fan headers and 1x 3-pin fan header, all controllable via BIOS.
- Optical Audio Out.
- 4x memory slots.

Cons: USB 2.0 ports all work. Annoyingly the 3.0 usb ports don't. On the board or on the front panel.

Other Thoughts: No 2.0 ports on the front panel of my case so definitely something I don't want to live with.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please test these USB 3.0 ports under UEFI/BIOS to verify hardware part is working.
If they are working in the BIOS, please download and install the AMD all in 1 driver at link below.

5 out of 5 eggsNice mobo, not expensive

Pros: Works well, once it is set up, and drivers loaded.
Seems to be stable.
Nice assortment of legacy ports.

Cons: UEFI bios difficult to use with MS wireless mouse, movement is waaaay tooo sensitive.

Other Thoughts: Replaced a flaky FM2A75 board with this one. The physical swap was quick 'n easy. Having to reload all the AMD drivers is a PITA, took twice as long as it should have to get all the peripherals functioning correctly.

Props to ASRock for their handling of the rebate offered. On two purchases, the rebate was received in just a couple of weeks, with email notifications.
