1 out of 5 eggsHeaded for my junk box

Pros: Nice features for a small board

Cons: Board came with older BIOS and had to be flashed to boot any system at all. With new BIOS and UEFI turned off, it is unable to boot Fedora or OpenSuSE linux. It boots Mint, but has unstable operation. I have most on-board features turned off and no overclocking. I am able to install Mint, and sometimes it boots the installed system. I suspect problems with graphics drivers. I could spend another hundred and try operation with a new video board - but why should I have spent my money on an APU processor and board to begin with.

Other Thoughts: If you plan to run Linux, get the AM3+ board with a 6 or 8 core processor. I cannot recommend Asrock for any motherboard.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Unfortunately, mainboard does not provide Linux base OS drivers which depends on its developer.
Please test with Windows 7/8/8.1 to check if the symptom still occurs.
If you have any technical issues please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

3 out of 5 eggsLooks like a great board...

Pros: Fantastic feature set and options! Looks pretty and includes a decent software selection.

Cons: Shipped with old BIOS and won't boot my AMD A10-7700K APU. I can't flash the BIOS to test without an older CPU.

Other Thoughts: ASRock tech support has been decent. They won't answer the BIOS question directly but have indicated that they will RMA the board. Hopefully all will work out.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Due to CPU A10-7700K has released after mainboard, update BIOS is needed to work properly.
Please update replacement mainboard is working fine.
If you have any technical questions or warranty issues in the future please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing Board

Pros: This board is amazing in the fact it comes with alot of on board features. UEFI has many and easy OC features, which comes at a price much lower then most high end OC boards.

Cons: North bridge has no heat sinks, but in a well ventilated case it should be fine. I haven't had any over heating issues running the system for 24 hour stress test.

3 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect

Pros: Layout of the board is perfect for small atx format.

Cons: No vrm heat sink (Really)

Other Thoughts: This board is called an extreme board but yet has no vrm heat sink for the board and a smaller power phase for the cpu then the full size atx board. While motherboard vendors bend over backwards to give you all the features for intel cpus in micro atx format they always cut amd users short. Very disappointing to say the very least in this type of treatment. Biased market.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic board for the price.

Pros: Very fast and stable board. I have this coupled with a Athlon II 760K OC to 4.2. Been running the OC for a few days and have had no problems. Also bought; G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) running at the full 2400 speed using the default XMP settings. BIOS is 1.50 and I've had zero problems with the exception of a BSOD which I think was due to my attempt at OC'ing my very weak GPU (GT 430). I mostly game and intend to complete my build in preparation for the coming years of next-gen.

Cons: No real cons to give as the board still works and kicks a**. Only real con that doesn't involve hardware problems was the drivers. Before/after purchasing the board and not until it coming into my possession did I find out that there were no drivers for vista 32/64. There was no real indication on OS compatibility for drivers. Pretty much I didn't find out until I powered up the board and getting into the BIOS that there were 0 drivers for windows vista. They ironically have drivers for XP but not vista. So if you still use vista like I did, plan on buying Win7/8 or downgrading to XP before you can take full advantage of the board.

NOTE: I tried using the board with vista 32bit and it was godawful slow compared to using Win7 64. There are SOME drivers for vista but none of them were the really important ones for the board to actually work right. Not entirely sure if everything for xp is even there.

Other Thoughts: Besides it being incompatible with vista, it's an awesome budget board and would highly recommend to anyone who's planning on doing the same.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Company

Pros: I got ASROCK FMA85xx series and its working flawlessly but this one.

Cons: This ASROCK FM2A88M Extreme4+ is terrible..in the middle of installing win 8.1 ...it crushes...try everything ..reformat the hd...installed again..it crushes again and again...tried everything..changing HArd drives...the same...changing Bluray drive to DVD drive..the same...and the bad thing is when i tried to return it...the shipping fee is almost $15.00 to return a not functioning MB..

Other Thoughts: I built and assemble the new PC with all the new parts from Newegg ( looks to me some are refurbished because has no original boxes like Hybrid HD, Bluray, and AMD A8 CPU with broken cooler fan...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the issue, please set the UEFI BIOS default.
Reseat the CPU heatsink fan and thermal compound to avoid is not overheating.
Test with single memory module.
If you have any technical questions please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.

Pros: Easy install, has everything I need

Cons: After BIOS update will not run stable my Team Xtreem 8GB DDR3 2666 on more then 1600 mhz.. and there is no option for 2600 only 2400. Used to run memory at 2400 before bios update without problems.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
If the system is working with previous BIOS, please flash back to particular version.
However, we don’t recommend users to update the BIOS if the system is already running normally.
