4 out of 5 eggsThis review is for ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) Motherboard

Pros: Bought this motherboard to build a new WHS server. It fits the bill just right. The only change that I made to the board was that I changed out the WiFi MSata card for a 240GB hard drive.

My Build:
This Board
CPU: AMD A4-6300 Richland 3.7GHz Newegg: N82E16819113349

Hard Drive: Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDAT240GB 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) Newegg: 9SIA2W00ZD1379

OS: Windows Home Server 2011

6 - 500GB WD Blue hard drives.

I will report any hiccups.

Cons: No Cons as of yet. I replace a WHS v. 1 system.

3 out of 5 eggsno video issue, figured it out

Pros: Once you get the right CPU, RAM, and the BIOS, this thing is really good. It has all the things you would want for a quick and easy build. Example, wireless, bluetooth, HDMI in and out, and etc.

Cons: Came with BIOS 1.20 and did not detect A10-5800k. No video issue, just like many people. So I grabbed the A10-6800k I had on my other system, and the video came up. Once the video comes up, you can press F2 to get into the settings. You can the option to upgrade the BIOS and did so to the latest version. Once I got the upgraded BIOS, A10-5800k is not detected and you have video.

Other Thoughts: Don't give up on the board if you are having the video issue. You just need to have the right CPU/RAM for the BIOS you have. Once you can get in, then upgrade the BIOS. There is a sticker on the small BIOS chip that tells you the version. Example, 1.20

1 out of 5 eggsFor Completeness

Pros: N/A

Cons: For the sake of completeness (since others may want to know what BIOS version my ASRock motherboard had), the BIOS chip version was 2.10

I RMA'd the motherboard back to NewEgg and got the GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XN-WIFI from the same nationwide brick & mortar store for a lot less than the current promo through another APU + Mobo combo purchase.

Other Thoughts: A couple things to note with the Gigabyte (for those on the fence between the ASRock and Gigabyte):

Gigabyte mobo is part of their Ultra Durable series
WiFi wires do not require installation on mini-PCI Express module like the ASRock
Gigabyte mobo has a 802.11ac module adapter
Gigabyte doesn't have VGA port
Gigabyte has no eSATA port
Gigabyte supports up to 64GB system memory (versus ASRock's 32GB)
Gigabyte has 4 SATA ports (versus ASRock's 6)
Gigabyte has heatsink on its ferrite core choke coils (versus ASRock not having any heatsink for theirs)

1 out of 5 eggsPowers up But Outputs No Video

Pros: 802.11abgn
USB 3.0
6 SATA ports

Cons: Motherboard does not output any video through the HDMI Out or DVI ports when powered on. This seems to be a recurring theme with the negative reviews on this mobo.

Both my Samsung HDTV and Samsung Monitor stated there was no input signal. Strangely power cycling the system seemed to make both displays think something was about to come in through their input ports only for them to go right back and say no input signal.

Note to ASRock: Yes, I used the HDMI OUT port and yes I tried reseating everything. I also cleared CMOS. I also used one Corsair memory module in the first memory bank.

This was my first ever ASRock purchase. I bought the mobo mainly because it was a great value for 90 dolla. I normally buy either Asus or Gigabyte.

I may give ASRock another chance at some point in the future, but if I get two duds in a row, I doubt I'll ever consider ASRock again.

Other Thoughts: System:
Kaveri A10-7850K
8GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 RAM
Seasonic 660W Platinum PSU (Overkill but all I had at the moment)

I disassembled the system after spending what I thought was a reasonable amount of time troubleshooting this mobo.

I ended up installing the 7850 APU into a GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-D3H that I got for a penny when buying the Kaveri on sale at a nationwide brick & mortar computer store. Everything ran flawlessly first time trying with the Gigabyte mobo (which had the latest non-BETA firmware out of the box).

That all said, one thing I wasn't crazy about is how one must install the wires from the wireless adapter to the I/O panel. The connectors are tiny and you have to carefully line things up before you CAREFULLY press / mash things into place. There's got to be a better way.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Guyver,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
ASRock mainboards are fully tested to assure the quality. Unfortunately, due to nature of electronic product, it can happen.
Please check the BIOS version is 2.10 (sticker on BIOS chip) if using CPU A10-7850K.
If you have any technical issues please contact us at We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsGood board

Pros: Seems to work fine.

Cons: purchased this board as a base for a freenas system. Didn't read into the many layers deep documentation that the onboard NIC is completely unsupported. Oh well, i'll throw windows on it. *nix open source is joke.

1 out of 5 eggsGood minus the HDMI

Pros: Solid board. Was delivered quickly. Runs decent with a good BIOS interface.

Cons: The HDMI out port was DOA. I tried to contact customer service who told me that my TV was incompatible with the HDMI out... Then was rude through out the phone call. Be warned the customer service is far from helpful and the HDMI on mine was not functional.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Mainboard has 2 x HDMI ports, one is HDIM-out and the other is HDMI-in.
Please check if the TV has plugged to mainboard's HDMI-out.
Check the monitor has set to appropriate output source.
Test with another HDMI cable.
For HDMI in and out ports location, visit user manual under page 15 at link " ".
If you have any technical issues please contact us at We will assist you shortly.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: Looks pretty.....

Cons: DOA board
No video
Not a bios version issue
Worthless board and a great waste of 12 bucks for return shipping!!!

Other Thoughts: I miss the old newegg that actually stood behind stuff. It's one thing to offer a service like prime for purchases but for return it is absolute thievery.
Never buying another asrock and looking for a new source of parts after this.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved;
Unplug the ATX power.
Remove the mainboard from chassis, place it on mainboard’s box
Clear the CMOS.
Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan as well
Test with single memory module (non-ECC, un-buffered)
Test with onboard VGA (CPU with APU supported or test with VGA card)
Plug the 24 pins + 4 pins ATX power
Plug the chassis power switch to mainboard, and try again

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Great board, lots of features, more than I'll ever use. Works awesome with my A10-7850K and 8GB or Radeon gaming ram at 2400mhz, I can play BF4 at 720P with high settings, TitanFall runs great as well.

Cons: Newegg eggsaver shipping. Don't make the mistake of getting the "eggsaver" shipping, it took 8 days to get. Newegg is using "smartpost" for the eggsaver shipping, its about the worst shipping method possible.

2 out of 5 eggsHas some problems

Pros: Small, reasonably priced board used for HTPC system.

Cons: HDMI video ouput does not work. I ended setting it up in my case and got it working with an external VGA monitor with no problems and was hoping drivers might fix the HDMI problem, but not such luck. I was attaching to a TV which only had an HDMI option, so I almost returned it, but didn't want to respend all the setup time, so I bought a DVI to HDMI adapter and that seems to be working fine. (I was able to get sound through the DVI HDMI converter which was my concern with the adapter).

Other Thoughts: If it weren't for the HDMI problem, it is a nice board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Ross,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the HDMI issue, please plug the monitor to HDMI-out port (plug to HDMI-in, screen would not be display).
For more information, please visit manual link under page 15 at " ".
Test with another known good HDMI cable.
Check the TV/monitor has set to appropriate output.
If you have any technical issues please contact us at We will assist you shortly.

Thank you
