4 out of 5 eggsFM2A88X MoBo

Pros: I would have given this mother board 5 stars if it could be under-clocked as easy that it can be over-clocked. The build included the AMD A8-7600 plus 8 gig of DDR3 2400 memory. The mobo recognized this and over-clocked the system by about 10% which is nice if you are playing light games but for watching a movie on a 2560 x 1440 monitor, to totally un-necessary, plus it caused the system to idle between 40-45 degrees C. Replaced the cooler with a Phanteks (TC12LS) 120 low profile, idle temps are now below 40 C.

Cons: Despite what ASRock advertises about being a "home cloud server" the board is primarily a light gaming board. To use it as such will require getting into the UEFI because the auto "cool and quiet" doesn't do the job

Other Thoughts: I think building a "desktop" or "HTPC" are almost at an end, I say this when I see the boards and processors that are just now coming out . . . If you are not gaming, about all that is left is a Mac

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very feature packed mini-itx solution
More SATA ports than competing solutions
eSATA port which competitors lack
HDMI in passthrough

Cons: Wireless N only, no 802.11ac like competitor's A88X mini-itx solutions.
No heatsinks on VRM's, did not seem to negatively affect it though.

Other Thoughts: Nice, feature filled board for a mini-itx build. Simple but effective BIOS layout. I've had absolutely no issues with it, only docked it the one egg for lacking wireless AC that it's immediate competitors have. Seems to be fairly robust and I was surprised a tiny mini-itx board was able to deal with taking a 7850K to 4.7GHz.

4 out of 5 eggspoor layout.

Pros: plenty of room between stock CPU cooler, and ram. came with updated bios to support kaveri apu. packed with features.

Cons: hd audio is right in line with the pci slot. not a big deal if your audio cable is flexible, but it also means that you'll need to rout the cable right along your gpu. The 4 pin CPU power is also not in a good place, as your cable routing options are limited. only one case fan header, meaning the rest of your fans will have to be molex.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless for virtualization

Pros: None

Cons: The IOMMU present in the bios/southbridge is flawed and does not work. This means this entire computer build based around the motherboard is useless... IOMMU support is advertised, but it does not work and is completely useless even with the latest BIOS update. This has wasted hundreds of my dollars, and now I need to return and my processor, motherboard, and new mini-itx case because Asrock is advertising features that don't work at all. Look up IOMMU if you don't know how important it is for efficient, effective, vm's.

Other Thoughts: I can't find any other decent mini-itx amd fm2+ motherboards with IOMMU for running virtual machines. So even if I return this mobo, I won't be able to use this mini-itx case I got for it seeing as I will have to get a larger mobo (obviously not an Asrock as the advertised features don't work).

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: On paper it looks like a very capable motherboard.

Cons: Dead on arrival. There have been a lot of reviews lately of people getting dead motherboards so there must be a bad batch. Hopefully Newegg/ASRock will catch on soon and find the defective batch and send it back.

5 out of 5 eggsCombo deal

Pros: Super easy to set up for htpc.

Cons: I added 2 fans to the case, probably not needed, so I had to dig up an old molex adapter for the last fan.

Other Thoughts: Didn't o/c for htpc of course. The driver set up was the simplest I've done ever and I didn't need to get into uefi at all.

2 out of 5 eggsupdated review

Pros: After owning this for a year im updating my review

strong, small, low cost

Cons: The ram in slot B stop being recognized by the board. It takes having to pull out all power to the board like usb hubs, power cable and cmos battery to some times fix it. I even tried to send help with the on board ueif help email form but that would not work with my network config.

Other Thoughts: Other then this ram issues that keeps happening its a good board. I am trying to reach support about this issue.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

5 out of 5 eggsOverkill for an FM2+ board!

Pros: A lot of high performance features that make me wish they made a cpu better than the A10-7870k! Asrock seems to be the kings of amd apu motherboards.

Cons: Overall none.

Wifi is only N but can be upgraded.
The apu fan control is ok and can be fine tuned. Might be more of an issue with the actuall APU (A10-7870k) being hot or the fan the quite suited for the APU.

Other Thoughts: This board shames other itx boards and rivals atx ones for features. Just awestruck on how feartured packed this board is.

4 out of 5 eggsIt gets the job done

Pros: This form factor is convenient, and the built in wireless came in handy for my purposes.

Cons: The only let downs that i encountered, were the minimal amount of fan headers, and cooling options. As everyone knows AMD's stock cooling solutions are utterly despicable, so as someone in their right mind I opted for an AIO solution. I copped an (Enermax Liqtech 120x) amazing cooler by the way, but on this motherboard there are soldered bits on the back which restricted the coolers back plate which rendered it usless

Other Thoughts: Besides those two complications, everything was good

1 out of 5 eggsTwo Bad Boards

Pros: Inexpensive.

Cons: Blue screens like crazy.

Other Thoughts: I had orinally gotten this motherboard a year ago, and it worked fine for a few months. However I had hard disk issues, so I decided to buy a new hard disk. Then things were fine until I got BSODs on that disk, so I got an SSD. After the same behavior happened again with the SSD, and finding no issues with the RAM via memtest, I RMA'd my board through ASRock and it was approved (RMA #1503291). However, the replacement board has had more frequent BSODs than before! I'd get one or more a day - sometimes my PC would abruptly restart without warning. I wouldn't recommend this board to anyone. I've spent more time troubleshooting this than actually using my computer.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize that you having difficulty with mainboard.
The mainboard had been replaced with another (verify with serial number) and fully tested by our technician to assure working fine before shipped.
If replacement mainboard still having same issue, that need to verify other components causing.
Please load the BIOS default.
Test with single memory module, switching another memory if problem still persist.
Check the CPU is not overheating.

If you have any technical Support inquiry, please contact us at We will assist you shortly.

Thank you
