2 out of 5 eggsWorked great, but it died

Pros: Loved how easy it was to navigate the BIOS setup. Large number of USB 3 ports, everything i could posibly need/want in a mobo.

Cons: It was a bit hard to fit into my case, but that wasn't really a big deal.
It no longer works, after less than 2 months. I hit the power button, and the fans all turn on, but the monitor will never get any video feed. No beeping sounds from the motherboard either. I hope to get a replacement, one that works long term so i could give this 5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsMisdiagnosis

Pros: Everything In my old review stands.

Cons: Everything In my old review stands.

Other Thoughts: I am dearly sorry to inform that what happened was a Mis-diagnosis! The other stick of Ram I had tried out turns out it was bad too! It turns out the ram had gone bad after six months instead of the motherboard! I am sincerely sorry to be a little hasty on my decision, and to be fair I rated it again as 4 stars, I do indeed enjoy the bios functionality as it is very convenient and easy to navigate.

2 out of 5 eggsBroken After Six Months, Idk If i can replace!

Pros: Worked Great
Looks Nice
Easy Setup
USB 3.0
Easy Overclock option in BIOS.
BIOS has a password option to protect against intruders.

Cons: It's dead
Sits on a black screen.

Other Thoughts: This motherboard was indeed easy to install and it worked perfectly when I got it and I had everything ready within the first for hours of un-boxing *even windows 7 + drivers* And it worked fine *I recieved this item around Christmas time so please note*
Fast Forward about six monts.
I left somewhere for a week so I turned off my power protector and unplugged it from the wall, to save energy so that it won't waste any. After that week I come home to get on and a few hours later after plugging in my iPhone to restore it (also having issues with that) my computer crashed and it sat on a black screen. That was only the beginning.
A few days later I noticed that this had happened again and it had just rebooted. And then again, and again, and again, even when I'm not around the computer it happens. Another week goes by, and my computer, wont even turn on. Its stuck at a black screen upon boot, the power button doesn't do anything, nor hitting the reset button, I have to manually cut off power to the system. I didn't abuse this thing, and it has been cleaned and sat on my desk for 6 months before this happened. The fact that this has happened in the first 6 months of purchase is ridiculous.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsAsRocked

Pros: I purchased this mobo 12/16/13 and I did not assemble the system until the end of Jan 2014. So their went my newegg warranty.

Cons: I got the mobo back yesterday 4/9/14, no warning it was on the way, no explanation of previous problems, is this mobo a refurb or or my old one or maybe new. (nothing) It was returned in a static bag and the outside box said dell computers. I had to read the shipping label to see who it was from. After I received it I got an email over an hour later saying it was shipped.

Other Thoughts: Currently I installed the hard drive my computer and it boots to bios constantly. The mobo did not do this when it was new. So, I called Asrock tech support, 1st they said it was a bad hard drive. I assured him it was not, next he said the bios was updated and everything was checked so I should not be having a problem. I said thank you for your time and hung up. I going to call Newegg and see if they can do something for me, like another brand mobo. This is my last review on this product I'm Done.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGood Mobo, if you know what your doing

Pros: UEIF is fairly well laid out. Auto restore of default settings on boot failure is nice...reduces the number of times youll have to open your case to find the clear CMOS button.

So far Ive had very stable overclocks. Processor is stable at 4.8Ghz and GPU is stable at 1168mhz on an A10-6800k.

Cons: AHCI mode and base clocking dont play well together. Anything over about 105mhz will cause failures unless you switch to IDE mode...which kills SSD performance (and by kills, i mean a 20-30% loss. Still much faster than spinners).

Other Thoughts: Getting a northbridge cooler and hoping I can push some more power though this thing.

1 out of 5 eggsAsRocked

Pros: None yet, I received this current email from AsRock, Wed, March 26, at 5:40 pm, that my motherboard was received.

Please note that it usually takes 5-7 business days (exclude holidays and weekends) to process RMA request. If the RMA process was delayed due to our RMA inventory, we will notice you as soon as possible. Well that's not true. I'm still waiting for a response or motherboard or the next lie!

Cons: Dear valued customer,

We want to inform you that we have received your return motherboard in our facility. After we inspected your motherboard, we had started processing your RMA request.

Please note that it usually takes 5-7 business days (exclude holidays and weekends) to process RMA request. If the RMA process was delayed due to our RMA inventory, we will notice you as soon as possible. You will be notified via email once your status has been updated.



Thank you!



Best regards,

ASRock Customer Service

Other Thoughts: I have emailed Asrock 4 times and asked for a clarification of the above statement and have gotten no response. I don't know what to do? I guess I lost my money and the motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mid-gamer motherboard

Pros: Can support most if not all new A-Series CPUs.
Not flimsy.
More than enough SATA ports.
Doesn't have bad colors
eSata.
Many USB slots
Supports older mouse/keyboard connectors.
PCI-E 3.0!

Cons: The SATA ports are angled, which is common in nearly all new motherboards, this makes it hard if your hard drives are on that side of the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Bought for a friend, and was easily installed.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware of ASRock FM2A88X Extreme4+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Product offered many appetizing features ASRock FM2A88X Extreme4+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Cons: Warranty, when you have a problem, 1st no refunds this company does not deal with money, the C.S. agent told me. Once AsRock products are purchased you must deal with whom ever you purchased from. They told me, "They can replace products providing they find a problem (who knows how long that could take) and you will need your purchase receipt to make sure you were the original purchaser of their product. I am the original purchaser. AsRock is not as well known as other MB manufactures. So read all of their guidelines and rules before you give your hard earned monies to AsRock. I think that's a hassle providing you purchased the product in confidence from AsRock but if you have a problem they provide you with many (excuses) I mean AsRock Company protection policies to keep them afloat. I purchased many pieces to build this PC, it was 2 and a half months exactly before I put it together, that was my mistake so their went my 30 day Newegg warranty for a faulty product that would not update from their fancy auto update feature that does not work at all. Becareful of AsRock products.

Other Thoughts: I am going to try to get a replacement, I guess this system is going to be out of service, I'll have to see how long this takes. I will definitely keep you posted.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsNot working

Pros: none

Cons: Does not work with Kaveri.

Other Thoughts: Shipped with Bios version 1.1. Maybe this is too old to work with a Kaveri? I have no way to update bios if it won't post.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Due to Kaveri processor has released after this mainboard, the BIOS update is needed to recognizing it. Please contact us at 909-590-8308. We will send the BIOS chip ASAP.

Thank you
