1 out of 5 eggsHad lots of problems with this locking up and freezing.

Pros: Small board, inexpensive.

Cons: Would lockup/hang frequently. Very unreliable. Would not past POST many times, would lockup in Windows sessions, and would freeze when in BIOS (confirming it was not a windows issue).
Replaced with an ASUS board with all the same hardware otherwise, (only swapped motherboard) and ASUS is rock solid, indicating that the failures and lockups were this motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Would advise spending a few more dollars and buy a better product

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the freeze issue, please check the CPU is not overheating.
Reseat the HSF and apply the thermal compound to try if it overheating.
Allow better air circulation inside the chassis.
Load the BIOS setting default.

2 out of 5 eggsSo unimpressed

Pros: Clear layout, straightforward design, good ideas for software

Cons: Wonky performance, spend s LOT of time chasing gremlins, to much tweaking (through included software) will break everything, eventual BSOF (Black Screen Of Death).

Other Thoughts: This board has never worked correctly. The CPU fan control would send RPM's crazy high regardless of actual settings, OC-ing through included utility crashes the system, updates seem to fix one problem only to open at least one more, finally after (almost to the month) 2 years of light HTPC duty there is no video output. Fans spin, discs whir...no video. For all the good reviews you'll see a few commonalities running through the threads, and I will not be purchasing another ASRock product as a replacement.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Val,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For failed posting, please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.
• Turn the power off, clear the CMOS.
• Test with single memory module.
• Test with onboard video (CPU with APU or test with VGA card).
• Connect the monitor to onboard video.
• Turn on the power to check if its post.

If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/Support/tsd.asp
We will assist you shortly.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh quality and feature packed FM2 + motherboard

Pros: -6 x SATA 3 ports
-mSATA port (not shared with SATA ports)
-great audio

Cons: -Instructions could be clearer in regard to mSATA port (only 1 configured from factory with wifi card, support will need to be moved back and wifi card removed to connect full size mSATA)
-wifi antenna setup is fiddly (but not required in my case which I discovered later as I wanted to use the mSATA port for HDD)
- Could not get Wake On Lan to work

Other Thoughts: I'm running 6 x 2 TB SATA drives in RAID 5 booting from an mSATA drive running Ubuntu. It is fantastic and the picture and sound quality is amazing (paired with A8-7600 configured for 45w TDP and 2 x 4gb at 2133 MHz)
I would recommend this product to others depending on whether AMD keep the socket type. If you would like to build a NAS/HTPC type device now, paired with a suitable case you cannot go wrong

1 out of 5 eggsFrustrating

Pros: Other than randomly powering itself on and off on occasion, worked OK for light HTPC duty.

Cons: Trouble started when I repurposed the machine for NAS duty. After adding additional SATA and external USB drives to the system, I found out there is a bug in the 2.4 BIOS version where the hard drive boot order will intermittently reset itself. This is exceedingly frustrating when running a headless system. I found reports of similar issues with this board and the recommendation was to update the BIOS to the latest version. I did so via the built in Internet update in the UEFI BIOS. BIOS update was successful and it rebooted into the OS just fine. Upon rebooting the system again after a successful OS boot to confirm that the boot order did not get overwritten again, the machine would not output any signal on the HDMI port and would not boot successfully back to the OS. I was able to find several other reports of this issue as well. I contacted ASRock support via their web form and after several days I have received no contact, only a bounce message.

Other Thoughts: Left with no other options, I replaced this motherboard with a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI that has been working great so far. Unfortunately there aren't many options for FM2+ mini-ITX motherboards, but given my experience and the lack of support I can't recommend this ASRock board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the no output signal or post issue, please, turn the power off, clear the CMOS to check if it address the issue.
For the boot order, please connect main drive to SATA3_1 port.
Set the Boot option #1 to desired drive.

We will assist you shortly.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks - and I found a cooler that works with it...

Pros: It works. I didn't really need mini-itx since it was going in a normal case but it had a rebate and all the features I needed so I went with it. I'm using it for a plex setup, so I may go to a smaller case down the road anyway. One thing I missed in the reviews initially was the concern of compatible coolers. I got the Artic Freezer A11 for an AMD CPU and it works just fine. The plastic "pins" that hold the socket in are removable, and I wonder if that was the concern for some previous reviews. It was a tight fit, but it works. I have two sticks of G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series, and there was enough clearance in the second slot, but it was pretty close.

Cons: I'd never worked with a mini-ITX board - it is definitely small and hard to work around. I had to remove the PSU in my case in order to have enough room to plug it into the motherboard. If I ever need to take out the RAM the fan will have to come out which definitely sucks.

Other Thoughts: It being so small I was having a hard time reading the PIN layout for power, reset etc. I can't tell for sure, but it seems like the labels on the mobo don't match the documentation. I couldn't get it powered on and when I looked at the manual it showed a different layout - but that could just be me getting old ;)

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed!!

Pros: Features, small and easy set-up.

Superb performance on the first 2 days.

Cons: I was really looking forward to use this itx board, but unfortunately as other reviews has stated "black screen."

Only on my second day of using this motherboard it started acting weird. Things like taking multiple attempts to power on, freezing at bios or after boot-up, powering off by itself, and finally this morning I got a black screen. I tried resetting the RAM, CMOS, checking for loose connections, reconnecting cables, etc. I still have a black screen. What's funny is that all my fans and LED's are still working. I am currently in the process of refunding this mb for a different one.

Other Thoughts: I gave it a 2 because I still remember the excitement I had when it first arrived at my doorstep, as well as the great performance the first 2 days.

Would recommend if it works, but I'm not so sure now.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Chou,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.
• Turn the power off, clear the CMOS.
• Test with single memory module, switching another memory if problem still persist.
• Test with on board VGA (required remove VGA card).

3 out of 5 eggsHo Hum

Pros: It was the only board that had everything I needed. So I am glad it is here. It has the fast booting, built in WiFi, and holds the chip I wanted. And I wanted a small board.
It has been over a month and the only issue has been interference with the speaker wire messing with the WIFi. That took a while to figure out. It would say it was connected to the router but pages would not load or take forever.

Cons: The so-called built-in WiFi makes you put it together. And the assembly is very fiddly. Not fun for me at all. These connections are microscopic. And you need wrenches that are not provided to attach the connectors to the back plate. Just 2 data cables...but I knew that. Putting on all the front panel stuff was annoying. And the directions were ambiguous...but I got it right the first time because I have built a few computers. Or, maybe I was just lucky. I think it should have a couple more fan plugs but other than that, it is Ok.

Other Thoughts: If you need reading glasses, forget this board. The WIFI is too difficult to assemble. Also, be sure to keep the antenna wires away from other wires or you will start griping to your ISP about internet speed.

It is fairly ergonomic...but not if your case installs the board upside down. I probably just got a weird case, so I can't hold that against the board maker. I used this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163182 and it was very difficult to put the front panel wires in.

Not really my idea of built-in WiFi. The regular WiFi adapters are far easier. And that pretty much was the reason I bought this board. The fact that you don't just screw in the antenna is a big bummer.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst company I have purchased from.

Pros: None

Cons: UPDATE: After updating to the newest BIOS from Asrock support (this means all the way through the update, including it telling me it was successfully installed and rebooting), it no longer boots, posts or otherwise works. I can't hear any beeping, no post on vga or hdmi, and a couple of weeks after initially emailing asrock support I have not heard anything back...

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: Update: After trying to contact Asrock customer support for multiple issues, I have found that there is none. Buyer beware, they won't help you when something goes wrong.

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).
