No, your motherboard doesn't melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit. Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.

4 out of 5 eggsSweet looking Motherboard

Pros: This motherboard was a snap to install. Has all the features of a motherboard costing alot more. Easy overclocking through UEFI bios. Also, was a snap to upgrade the BIOS using Asrock software and app disk.

Cons: There are only two things that I didn't like about the board, but no big deal. The first being that the 5th SATA port is to the far right of the 2nd PCIEX16 slot which means that if your SLI'ing with an ASUS gtx 680 Direct CUii card, you will render this SATA connection useless which happened to me. The second thing being that you can't install the FX 9370 or the FX 9590 because this board can't handle the TDP of these two processors. My main reason for buying the board was to install one of these processors, so I had to settle for the FX 8350 instead. Should have done my homework first. Don't let 990FX fool you into thinking that that means all FX processors.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this board to anyone using all AM2 and AM3+ processors which the exception of the FX 9370 and FX 9590. Board is very stable and the color scheme of the board looks great along with Red case fans and Corsair Vengeance Pro (red)

3 out of 5 eggsGood board but out of date M.2 QVL

Pros: Good board for the money.

Cons: BIOS interface can be buggy and not the most energy efficient overclocker. Also have had 3.0 front port usb consistancy and Sleep/Wakeup issues and it's not the connector as I have tried the board in multiple cases. Sometimes windows won't even detect the 3.0 ports upon a fresh boot up. I've tested using 4 different versions of drivers and the problem persists. Hoping the "changes USB function" note on the 1.60 BIOS addresses this. Keeping my fingers crossed and flash from 1.50 -> 1.60 tonight.

Other Thoughts: Overall pleased with this purchase as far as AMD boards go. However, I'm considering purchasing an M.2 SSD with NVME but can't tell if it will support some of the newer ones or boot from them etc.because the BIOS note and QVL lists on their site are very limited. The M.2 support list is always out of date. http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/Fatal1ty%20990FX%20Killer/?cat=Storage

Unless they stop selling this board and EoL it out, they need to keep testing and showing "partial/full support" test results for hardware compatibility. Something that ASUS is always on top of.

5 out of 5 eggsNo complaints

Pros: I got this MB simply because the layout of the expansion slots fit what I needed. This is my first ASRock board and it has been perfect for my needs. I know people have mentioned the VRM's can get hot, but that is par for the course when you are running an FX chip and no it will not handle the 9k series FX processors. I will say as others have, if you are coming from an ASUS board the bios is a bit different, but I have found it very user friendly. I do wish ASRock had something similar to AISuite.

Cons: None. Although that could change if I decide to OC

Other Thoughts: Good board with nice features. I would have liked to see more pwm fan headers, but I can change the fan settings in the bios so it has not been an issue. I had this MB swapped out in an hour and everything powered on first try. I was so confident that it would I didn't even bench test the board before I put it in the case. I put it in, did my wire management, closed it up and then I hit the power button and the board posted the first time

1 out of 5 eggsIt's called "Fatal1ty" for a reason...it'll die

Pros: Plugged everything in, started up, ran fantastic for a year and a half. Was able to run most games at max settings (well, NVIDIA recommended settings, which were almost always at max). Had computer on 24/7 because I'm one of "those" people.

Cons: Purchased Summer of 2014. So, right before Christmas 2015, it was running really sluggishly. Reboots usually clear things up, right? So, I rebooted, and it never came back on. Push the power button, black screen, no beeps, nothing but solid LED and fans coming on. I stripped it down to essential parts: power supply, stick of RAM, and video card - same issue. Heck I tried various configurations, but same issue. Considering that this build wasn't changed for a year and a half, it's definitely not a seating issue, right? Dead :(

Note that I've had this in a system-builder case (ANTEC Skeleton) which has a massive 250mm fan blowing down on everything, plus the computer literally sits on a pedestal on my desk, so there's plenty of circulation. All temperature sensors reported within normal range. I never bothered with overclocking, so everything is "stock". Generic Nvidia video card, GSkill memory, Samsung SSD, Seasonic "Platinum" power supply - all components test fine in other systems.

I went through the steps I've seen posted in other reviews: Clear the CMOS. Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan. Test with single memory module. Reseat video card firmly and 6+6 power (if applied). Reconnect the HDD/SSD drives. Plug the monitor. Turn on the power to check if its post and boot.

Unfortunately, it's dead - push power button, and met with not even a beep.

Other Thoughts: This was my first purchase of an ASRock product. I tend to built a new gaming pc every couple years, and I still have old MSI builds that are still chugging along (even though they've been retired to "Mom's Facebook machine" haha). While I really enjoy the look of this board, I'll have to go with other brands.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Alex,

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
We will be more than happy to assist you for replacement, if the mainboard is malfunctioned.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.

• Unplug the ATX power, clear the CMOS.
• Test with single memory module.
• reseat the VGA card firmly with its PCIE power.
• Plug the power back.
• Plug the monitor.
• Turn on the power to check if its post.

5 out of 5 eggsdoes the job, plenty of room for mods

Pros: plenty of usb 2.0/3.0 ports
looks good
north and south bridge heat-sinks look well designed and look heavy duty
was able to overclock my cpu from a 3ghz to a 3.65ghz right on the fly no issues, might try and oc more later with a better psu
dimm slots far enough (barely) for a coolermaster 212 and gskill ripjaws to fit
plenty of room for a crossfire or sli setup

Cons: no ide support. Ordered a disc drive after finding out. couldn't install a couple drivers or try the software with the disc because of that. No egg for that since parallel ata is an old technology anyways.

Other Thoughts: I had to install the Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200 Series drivers and the usb 3.0 drivers from asrock's website but this was from not having a disc drive at the moment(see cons). I would recommend installing the newest drivers online anyways.

Have a msi r9 390x on this thing and there is room for another with almost a half inch gap between them. Might i add that this video card takes up 2.5 slots.

phenom II x4 oc@3.65ghz

1 out of 5 eggsTrouble Trouble Trouble

Pros: This board is junk, get an ASUS sabertooth or crosshair, or MSI gaming 990fx and save your self pain, headache, and time.

Cons: Iv been building custom computers for almost 20 years,I have always used ASUS or MSI mother boards. This time I decided to go with Asrock ... Ohh how wrong I was, the board runs a bit hot, the Bios are ok but nothing compared to Asus or MSI. There is 500-1000 point drop on all bench marks with this board compared to Asus sabertooth, Crosshair, and MSI gaming 990fx. I run custom water cooling on fx 8350 at 5.0ghz temps always stay around 25-35c, with this board it jumped to 50-62c the chip set on the board is10-25 degrees higher as well. the board also does not like to restart with out manually restarting and some times does not even post correctly, It will also lock up during bios settings. Have the some of the same problems with my I7 build as well with new Asrock motherboard, I went back to my ASUS and MSI boards and that's were ill stay.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Shawn,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please allow better air circulation inside the chassis if using liquid/ water cooler due to there will be no air around CPU, VRM and NB areas, it's potentially built up heat upon usage.
Consider installing the chassis fan around that area to check if the symptom still occurs.
Please load the BIOS setting default to try if its overclocking to avoid lockup and/or unstable.

If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/Support/tsd.asp

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

Pros: This board is running a FX-8350 for me at 4.6ghz. I know some people can get their chips running at 5ghz, but I haven't tried yet. The board has alot of great services built in. F-Stream is a great overclocking tool that works with this board. Comes with a gift certificate for Xsplit.

Cons: F-Stream doesn't work right with Windows 10 as of this posting so I'm just overclocking through bios which works great. That one negative wasn't enough to knock it down an egg, because I prefer to overclock through bios anyway.

Other Thoughts: Not really a con, but the mix of 3 and 4 pin of fan connectors didn't go well with the ones I had already bought(should've checked it out in advance)
