4 out of 5 eggsDecent board

Pros: 6 sata ports, pci-e slot and lots of usb ports. Multiple HDMI and very cool little board that gives enough space for RAM and a decent cooler.

Cons: The audio port is placed so that you cannot use a GPU and the case jacks at the same time.

The hell were they thinking?! -1 egg.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for media center/HTPC, wireless is terrible.

Pros: Optical out is perfect for older home theater systems that do not support HDMI natively.
Connectors are in good locations for small cases.

Cons: BIOS flashing is nerve wracking and requires removing an installed video card.
The included wireless Atheros chip is terrible. It can't connect to a standard wireless N access point.
Large coolers with big backplates will not work on this motherboard without modification.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend swapping out the built in wireless card for one based on an Intel chipset.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall and versatile

Pros: the list is long. It's small but does it all. WiFi, Bluetooth, ect.
No video card needed with APU's and there is a pcie slot too, 6 sata, USB 3.0, front and rear speaker jacks and so on. I installed an A6-5400 and one 4 gb1866 memory stick and new APU heatsink/fan with Windows 7. It runs very fast and well.There IS a audio port below the PCIe card slot (a con), and the memory slots are very close to the APU heatsink, so adding your own heatsink must clear the memory slot. I was only able to use one slot which is all I needed anyway. If I install the APU heatsink pipes the other way, I could have both slots when needed.

Cons: None but beware that the back of the mobo is not empty behind the APU so underboard heatsink brackets won't work. I had to go with a solid copper heatsink that used the same hold down method as the OEM setup.
I also found the the "thermal paste" on the tiny southbridge heatsink was bad so I applied some new Arctic Silver thermal paste. Rec only using silver thermal paste on APU.

Other Thoughts: When I used the HDMI port for a 32" monitor it was fuzzy, but the VGA and DVI ports were crystal clear.

Overall I'm very happy with this item, the transaction and the super fast delivery. This is probably the best and smallest FM2, FM2+ board there is if you want a good small board for a great price. I already have the Gigabyte version and I like this one better because I don't need all kinds of slots, just a nice fast computer that does everything and if you have a faster processor(A10 5800 4 core), fast video card and at least 1866 memory, this will play BF 2142 at 100 fps on Windows 7.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Board and solid Technical Support - Able to Boot Windows 10 w/SM951!

Pros: - Able to boot SM951 (128GB was used in my build) with a Beta BIOS (V3.20A) provided by ASRock Tech Supoort.
- Lots of features in this little board including a great on-board (7.1) sound.

Cons: - Would have been great if DisplayPort was available as the HDMI ports can support 4k only at 30Hz.

4 out of 5 eggsLots of features for the price, but beware.

Pros: Lots of features. Built-in Wifi is a great addition, but the big deal here is 6 SATA ports -- ideal for a home server.

Cons: Most manufactures add a backplate to AMD MBs; however, Asrock does not put one on the back of its m-itx AMD boards, and there are circuits there that prohibit you doing it yourself. So your selection of aftermarket coolers is really low -- do not trust what you see on pcpartpicker, which led me to buy a $55 paperweight, since when I went to install it it would not fit, and I didn't start putting my build together until after the return period had passed. Any cooling solution that requires a backplate will not work with this MB.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite nice

Pros: Looks great
Full features
Small footprint

Cons: Power connector placement for those using a top PSU mounted case. Not really an issue though.

Other Thoughts: I can see where using an aftermarket CPU cooler could be an issue. Not a whole lot of room between RAM slots and CPU socket. Not an issue for me though. Having the power connector at the top of the board can make it a little difficult if using a case with a top mounted power supply. Overall definitely a 5 star product so far.

1 out of 5 eggsOnboard SATA Controller Failed in 1 year!!!

Pros: Comes with nice accessories, External Antenna Case Connectors, External Antenna, Bluetooth works great, wifi works great,

Cons: Onboard SATA Controller Failed completely. Failure causes system to reboot bios at achi posts with sata drives connected. Tests with PCI-Express Drives and bootable usb drives revealed disconnecting all sata drives permits full system boot. Bios Re-flashed from USB works well. Internet bios update from UEFI Bios does not function.
All Bios Versions are very buggy and moody.

Other Thoughts: I will not buy again.

Pros: - ASRock Instant Flash - great feature, but remember to remove all other USB 2.0 devices

Cons: - ASRock manual could use improvement. It's not horrible (just typical) but clear up the "Instant Flash" notes as below

Other Thoughts: COMPONENTS:
 ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) - N82E16813157464
- mini PCI Express can run mSATA
- Feature rich, if you like that kinda thing
 G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2) x F3-2400C11D-8GXM - N82E16820231666
- Haven't had a bad batch yet
 A10-7850K Kaveri 45W (in BIOS) AD785KXBJABOX /w Radeon R7 - N82E16819113359
- An oldie but still good
 Noctua NH-L9a 92mm SSO2 CPU Cooler (N82E16835608030) /w Noctua NF-A9 PWM 92mm Case Fan - N82E16835608070 (set to 50% in "Fan-tastic Cooling")
- Heatsink quality is good, fan has MTTF of 150,000 hours nearly silent at 50% speed
 SAMSUNG 850 EVO mSATA 500GB SATA III - N82E16820147411
- 5-year warranty. Was hoping for SSD WEI at 7.9 (disappointed)
 NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter - N82E16833389035
- Consistent strong signal
 IN WIN BQS656.DD120BL Black Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 120W External Adaptor Power Supply - N82E16811108417
- Nice compact case
 Silverstone SOB02 Slim Slot Load 6x Blu-Ray Writer (bought from Memory Express)
 Windows Ultimate 64 bit

 Noctua cooler are high quality, cool well and their fans have great life expectancy and are quiet
 FM2A88X-ITX+: Update of BIOS crashed when my PSU plug was removed by accident. At first , the "ASRock Crash Free BIOS" wouldn't work (I was choked at first since I couldn't reboot). I then removed all USB devices and tried the reboot....... viola! System updated to BIOS P3.20 running great.
 A10-7850K Kaveri - TDP set to 45W in BIOS with very little performance loss

WEI Ratings (CPU TDP set to 45W)
Processor 7.3
Memory 7.4
Graphics 6.8
Gaming Graphics 6.8
HDD 7.7

Processor only dropped 0.1 rating point when TDP reduced from 95W to 45W.
NETIS WF2190 works well, connects at 680 Mbps to my TP-LINK Archer C3200 AC3200 (N82E16833704258)
I though the Samsung mSATA SSD should have rated at 7.9 (seems slower than it should be).
MS Office starts nearly instantaneously, so you won't be disappointed.

NOTE to ASRock: Mention in the manual that the Owner must remove all USB 2.0 devices so the "Instant Flash" BIOS update will be initiated. I fiddled with this for half an hour before I realized this, hence -1 egg.

Overall I like the quality and features of the FM2A88X-ITX+ board. Compact, low TDP, enough processor power and nearly silent build.
