5 out of 5 eggsSolid Motherboard

Pros: Plenty of external hookups for whatever need you might have.
Good layout around APU
BIOS features and self-update
Can run high speed memory

Cons: -Was not able to run my Gskill Ripjaws Z 2400 2x4G memory (F3-2400C10D-8GZH) at rated speeds. BIOS loads XMP profile fine, and runs memory at 2133 speeds fine, but not 2400.
- Only one USB3 header for those who care

Other Thoughts: Using this board for HTPC computer than can later be used as mini-desktop if need be. I didn't have a use for wifi module since I planned on mSATA. Assembly and installation of this board and APU has been painless and straightforward. Now, memory was a bit of chore since it refused to run at 2400 speeds.

BIOS has good features for overclocking, however I would caution against it since this board may not provide enough power regulation to run overclocks stable. Also, this board has smaller footprint so heating up will be a problem with heat dissipation. I would say that good overclock for APU might quite be possible with closed liquid cooler.

Running A8-7600 on this board and so far so good.

1 out of 5 eggsUnbelieveable

Pros: It is a nice motherboard

Cons: I am having the same issue as other users because the bios is not the latest. I was hoping to contact ASRock to see if there was a way to update the bios without having to purchase another FM2 processor but the representative who responded only provided me a website with processor that are compatible with this motherboard. I will never be purchasing from ASRock ever again.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsRevising my earlier review

Pros: Works well after tinkering and driver hunt, see "Other Thoughts."

Core Parts:
-->Don't laugh! Used 2 of 3 sticks from my old i7 triple-channel build. Detected as 1800 w/o mucking with the voltage.

Cons: Just ditch the included disk and go an hunt these drivers down elsewhere. Install the APU driver from AMD's site...

Had to "slightly twist" the APU in the socket to get it to work. Socket tolerances possibly wacked and causing false DOA diagnosis and customer frustration.

Other Thoughts: I left a really bad review because I thought my board was DOA and I was angry.

I had tried everything, different RAM, CPU, power supply, mounting and remounting components to no avail, no beep codes (yes, you better connect your case's mobo speaker).

I ended up requesting an RMA, but while I was waiting for it to process, I decided to give the APU socket another shot. I slightly twisted the APU in the socket (.01 degrees or so) and that little stinker started beeping at me!

I ended up proceeding with the build after getting it locked down with the stock heat sink. It has been wicked fast ever since and continues to make my mom very happy.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great, now ...

Pros: Very small form factor. All features I have tried work as they should.

Cons: Board wouldn't post at first with the memory I was using, G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-8GBXM. After going down to one stick I was able to post into BIOS and adjust RAM timing settings.Then I was able to use both sticks. After that the system hasn't crashed once.

4 out of 5 eggsPoor Bluetooth performance

Pros: A lot of features crammed into a mini-ITX footprint.

Cons: Bluetooth range is about 2 feet or so.

Other Thoughts: I uninstalled and reinstalled the BT drivers several times because I couldn't get this Asrock board to discover my BT keyboard. Knew it wasn't a keyboard problem because it worked fine with the old computer I was updating, and it was also showing up in device searches for my BT phone and tablet.

I set the keyboard down to stomp around in frustration, and looked up to see the PC had discovered it. Picked it up to pair it, and it wouldn't pair. Finally realized that it was a range issue, and the keyboard had to be almost touching the PC case. More than about a keyboard-length away, and the BT connection drops!

This is an HTPC build and I want to use the keyboard from the couch, 8 feet away. So far, that's not working for me.

4 out of 5 eggsLove this one.

Pros: Adding a A10 amd processor made this baby unstoppable, I can play Battlefield up to the mid settings with no issues,(didn't need to try on high since I got hd monitor) ,16 gig ripjaw and ssd corsair ,hd videos are a dream I can even play 4k also, don't get me stated on the boot time is ready almost as soon as you press the on button, bluetooth and wi-fi build in ,whats not to like?

Cons: Need to buy very small sata wiring because of the small form factor, long cables with cramp up the heat sync, do not get a full size dvd drive best getting the thin type.

Other Thoughts: The best motherboard I ever use in 15 years building computers for my personal use

4 out of 5 eggsNice board with good features.

Pros: Alot of features are packed into this little board.
Supports latest APU, 32gb ram, USB 3,

Cons: In my case the SATA connections are right under the HDD and this makes for a tight fit that may cause this board to fail in the long run ( Time will tell ). One would think the manufacture would look at the ITX cases out and realize that 1/2 or more would have this problem and relocate the SATA plugs on the board.
Also the price of the ITX boards is high in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: It is a good board for a SFF build just be aware of the space restrictions your case may give you.
