4 out of 5 eggsKiller

Pros: Fast board
Long list of compatible components
Plenty of ability to expand
Bios is super user friendly
Software works great
Easy to install
Tech support is great

Cons: When i first got the board anytime i plugged something into or unplugged something from a usb port while the computer was running all the USB ports locked up. Found that this was a driver issue and it was easily fixed but still something to watch out for

Haven't determined if its a video card issue or a Mother board issue (leaning towards motherboard since it happens with 2 different ((same brand/model)) video cards) but everyonce in a while when the computer is turned on but not used for a while when you try to wake up the monitor the screen stays blank. i end up having to unplugged the video card power cable and plug it back in.

Other Thoughts: Overall i am super satisfied with the mother board. its fast and seems to work great. plus it looks great in the storm trooper case. The cons have been kind of an an-nuance but i am working through them. will update this if i figure out a solution for the video card problem

2 out of 5 eggsworked great than died

Pros: great features for overclocking and great when it works.

Cons: I have had this motherboard for about 6 months now and it finally died. I have had trouble with the board from the start. The board has always had problems posting and finally died. I have tried many cpus, ram and gpu configuration and nothing seems to work.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

Sorry to hear that the mainboard has malfunctioned after 6 months which’s due to nature of electronic product, it can happen.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.
Turn off the power.
Clear the CMOS.
Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan.
Test with single memory module.
Reseat video card firmly and PCIE power 6 + 6 (if applied).

5 out of 5 eggsgreat board for the money

Pros: the killer lan port is awesome , I wear headphones wile playing and the audio is nice , it picked up my amd 8350 cpu and reconized my ram as 2133 rite off the bat that wasn't even the compatable list , this boarb is very easy to overclock and change settings in the bios I have had acouple of boards that was kinda confusing. Has a lot of features of more expensive boards.

Cons: I read a lot of reviews where people say north bridge gets realy hot and well I touched it and it does lol. But the company that built it probly knows it to. I have been playing a lot of cod ghost and battlefield 4 for hours on end and never melted down or had any problems at all

Other Thoughts: My game has improved quite a bit with the same internet connection I know its got to be the killer lan port and the better audio . Seriously I kinda feel like I'm cheating .kinda lol.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for your buck!

Pros: This motherboard is almost perfect! The bios is amazing and with my ssd my computer boots in 5 seconds! there are so many nice features on this board its incredible!

Cons: none for this board whatsoever.

however, newegg should more clearly state that there is no pci port. but that was my fault for not noticing that.

Other Thoughts: far better than that gigabyte u3 board...

3 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: Great looking. Easy UEFI. Ultra fast boot with windows 8.1. Great layout. usb 3.0

Cons: 990FX Northbridge gets HOT!!!! Even worse when you put higher quality graphics cards in. Heat sink is a must upgrade if you plan on mb lasting and gaming.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

Thank you for your purchase and review.
Due to power design, AMD platform generates more heat than Intel (LGA 1155/1150).
Please allow better air circulation inside the chassis (install chassis fans).
If you have any technical issues or warranty questions please contact our Tech Support at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: great looks
supports three graphics cards without additional connectors
price

Cons: Has problems with video output initially
gets too hot. Fiery hot.



has

Other Thoughts: on my second board because my first one actually caught fire. one of the LF 270 c 3YA capacitors under the killer heatsink burst aflame during video game play. With my first board and now with my second board , I have the problem of absolutely no video output. Unfortunately I don't remember how I resolved the issue with the first board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer
