4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I did not want to submit a review till I have use this motherboard for a month or two. Unit has been running non stop with no issues. A good way to use up old hardware on my bench. System will run normal office programs without a problem.

Cons: No USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: For $60.00 you can not go wrong with this motherboard. As long as you have old hardware not being used this is a cheap way to put a system together.

4 out of 5 eggsMy old computer new.

Pros: I recently bought this motherboard from newegg.com to give my old AthonII 4050e cpu some new life. It was easy to set up in my Elite 360 case. The BIOS screen was easy to tweek. I plan on getting a AMD3+ cpu and DDR3 ram later.

Cons: No Sata III ports or USB 3.0, but you can still purchase a PCIEx1 exspansion card to fill that gap.

Other Thoughts: This is still a great board for the money. I would buy one again for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

Pros: This board has served me well so far. Bought this several months ago to replace a dead HP motherboard. This one has been good to me so far. I don't have a very powerful system, so hopefully this card will survive long enough to make it a good value. The install went smoothly also.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsNew Egg is Great

Pros: I have built several computers over the years and love New Egg. My orders go back 12 years. I have always had great service from egg.
The board allowed me to rebuild a unit that had older legacy parts like sata2 and Athlon 2 Quad and my memory which was ddr 2. There were not many choices, this one allowed me to upgrade my Ram and Processor too. I

Cons: only neg. it no Sata 3,
so you cant use Solid State.

Other Thoughts: Since I was trying to extend the life of a unit where the sata onboard controller just up and died. It was perfect for me. I had just purchased a new Video card.
I had time figuring out how to enable cool and quite, wrote tech support then discovered its only supported with 4 pin fan connector. It was written in the bios.

3 out of 5 eggsMotherBoard

Pros: Cheap and had basic features needed, I purchase the AMD FX4300 processor for it.

Cons: Motherboard Sata ports didn't function and had to send it back for replacement. Had to pay for shipping. $10 ouch it was $55 board.

Other Thoughts: Low rated because it had problems

1 out of 5 eggsAnnoying

Pros: It turned on, it worked....sort of

Cons: Would not restart, reset the BIOS to defaults, still would not restart or shutdown. Shutdown Windows but not the power to the PC...would have to manually hard shut it down. Installed another Mobo, same case, CPU and hard drive, shutdown and restarts no problem.

Other Thoughts: RMA'ing the Mobo. I have had one Mobo before that did this and just dealt with it...but I was buying this for a HTPC, so I'm sending it back.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA Motherboard second ASRock

Pros: The only pro is that it seemed to have all the right software and engineering
BIOS seemed OK.

Cons: The MB came and was easy to install. It was replacing an older ASRock with a bad audio and intermittant shuttdown.
They made this one even more poorly. It bluescreened on every device I tried to boot on. Failed with WinXP Win7, CDRom boot with Windows CDs. I ran it Naked with only a P/S, CD and RAM and still it failed.
Looks like ASRock needs to improve it's quality control on delivered boards. This one should have been caught. Although, it did run BIOS just fine.

Other Thoughts: After trying two AM3+ boards with DDR2 memory capability, I will have to stay away from ASRock and purchase a different brand and memory. I was trying to save the expense of DDR3 RAM, but it looks like that was just a cheap idea.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the issue, please turn the power off, clear the CMOS.
Set the BIOS default.
Test with single memory module, switching another memory if its same issues.
If you have any technical questions please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.

Thank you
