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.

1 out of 5 eggsNOT WORTH YOUR TROUBLE

Pros: Very fast, has all you could ask for in appeal and space.

Cons: This motherboard only worked for about a month until it constantly has a boot up problem in the Bios. Creating a no display error. Bios will not boot up which I know is a motherboard problem. When I rest the cmos everything works perfectly fine. Unless you wish to reset the cmos everytime dont bother.

Other Thoughts: I wish asrock would post solutions or fix for this motherboards constant problems. Not just my problems, look at forum sites, this is a problem with multiple people.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please download and update the latest BIOS at link below.
Set the UEFI BIOS default.
Reinstall the CPU, Memory and VGA card.

5 out of 5 eggsI've always gone ASRock, and this is why I keep coming back.

Pros: -This mobo looks slick as heck. I cried manly tears just unboxing it.
-The packaging is superb. Everything neat and tidy, and nothing damaged.
-SLI/Crossfire support.
-Well placed fan headers. Made my life a lot easier.
-As always, ASRock's bios is fantastic and makes doing anything 10x easier.
-Fantastic overclocker. The north bridge runs a bit hot but nothing extraordinary.
-Killer LAN. Everything about this is win.
-The 8pin is higher up on the board. Makes a lot of 450D owner's lives easier.
-Came with 4 SATA cables, 2 of which are at right angles.
-Extensive manual.
-Came with a 3 month XSplit premium membership. I love to stream so this helps out

Cons: -Thought I might create a black hole with the amount of force needed to get the cables out of the SATA ports. Good lord.
-Came with an SLI bridge... and not a Crossfire bridge. really asrock? It's an AMD board with no XFire bridge.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic board for the price. Paired it with an 8320 and it goes pretty hard in the paint. Wouldn't trade it for any other.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy board to use for overclock. Works well with FX8350. Tons of BIOS features. Looks and feels good quality.

Cons: Cannot RAID OS SSD's using the BIOS RAID tool. Not hit I knew when I bought it but I wish I would have gone for a board with more SATA connections. This one only has 5.

2 out of 5 eggs2 broken boards in a row.

Pros: Other than the network adapter being terribly bad it was a good board.

Cons: I recieved 2 broken MOBO in a row. I RMAed the first then recieved a new one to find out it had the same issue. The network adapter is very weak and if put under any stress it fails and requires a full reboot of your computer.

Other Thoughts: I really wish that the network adapter would of been better. If it was than this would of been a great board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the network issue, please install the fresh Windows and network driver to test before installing other application.
Download and install the network (LAN) driver at link below.

4 out of 5 eggsgood board

Pros: This is a good board great for an entry level gaming build. Lots of features and rock solid and good for overclocking.

Cons: The only con that i have found with this board is that the northbridge heat sink is garbage and allows for the northbridge chip to get extremely hot (thus the reason for the 4 eggs and not 5) but was not a problem for me i already have a custom water loop so i just added a northbridge waterblock and BAM nice and cool :)

Other Thoughts: Other then the northbridge heatsink its a great board and i would recomend it to anyone looking for a good cheap motherboard for their budget gaming rig
