5 out of 5 eggsSecond review, first was prob around march last year.

Pros: This thing is a beast. I still wouldnt buy any other board and for the money you will not find a better board. I know what I am doing have been building PCs for years, My amd 8350 is running close to 5ghz with a evo 212+ and like 8-10 fans with a decent voltage bump. With proper knowledge this thing can overclock with the best of them, just need to shut off power saving features on the motherboard. Sli 760 FTW 4gb edition, 4 hard disk drives(3 SSDs), blu ray burner,32gb memory. Has been my favorite build so far.

Cons: Can not think of any.

Other Thoughts: this is great board for anyone gaming overclocking using am3+. I have an 8350 in it and think that asrock gave us a treat with this board. Have 8-10 noctua fans not including the evo 212+ and overclocked over 700 mhz and do not have any heat issues even with two 760 FTW in SLI. Great board. Please put it in a big case, you wont be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsPlug in and play

Pros: Gotta say, never bought ASRock before but I am decently impressed, I took out my ASUS and connected this one and it started right up.

Cons: Only two onboard USB connectors for the case but plenty on the back panel. Drivers took a while to install.

5 out of 5 eggsStill working great

Pros: +With the setup I have for my home built computer, I am getting a 15 second start up time.
+The Bios is simple to use and has an improved feel over the classic Bios.
+The board gives a generous amount of USB ports (more than I think I'll ever need)

Cons: (Please note none of the issues I had were worth deducting an egg)
+The board didn't have enough connectors for the fans on my case, however this is not much of an issue as most motherboards will not have 6 fan headers, and I was able to use the PSU to power them anyways.
+The motherboard also only has one front panel audio header while my case has two, however all the front panel audio connections work perfectly.
+The position of the CPU power connector interfered with the installation of my top mounted case fan.

Other Thoughts: For anyone reading this review, please keep in mind that there are flaws with all motherboards made, every motherboard has the chance to fail after short term usage or arrive dead on arrival (DOA). When building a computer make sure to take proper electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions, as this could ruin a motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat as it gets for 990

Pros: The gold capacitors, great for sound signal and music production, having been in the music industry for 12 years and producing for 8, this board will not leave your sound with buzzing or humming.
Now for strictly gaming this board doesnt have bells and whistles aesthetically however it OC fx series and ram like a boss. 5.0 ghz 8320 (however there are many factors besides the board)
It has a beautiful layout and design, black and red is a fun theme for amd systems especially.

Cons: If you want more than 2 gpus you will need a different board thos wont fit 3 double stack cards, buy 2 good gpus anyway and no worries.

Other Thoughts: Ive owned multiple 970s and 990s and have installed many for my customers. This is my favorite amd board overall.

5 out of 5 eggsNice motherboard

Pros: Nice looking board. Everything is well spaced out

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Easiest build I have had in a while. I plugged everything in and it booted right up. I did struggle a little with the driver for the NIC but once it was installed, I was up and running. ASRock has really been good to me.

4 out of 5 eggsasrock

Pros: good bios control this would be my third asrock board, in the past 3 years never had a problem as of yet! I deal with amd cpu 6300 and higher cpu as for cpu having cooling problems I had to custom the cpu cooler to something a little stronger

Cons: none of yet have a new board to install will see

Other Thoughts: I've used other 990fx motherboard from other companies make sure that the board can handle the thermal heat from the cpu output

5 out of 5 eggs990 killer

Pros: Stable and providing a moderate overclock without 0 issues.
Reasonable p;ricing in comparison to other 990 FX board
Decent options in a fairly well laid out bios,decent layout of board in general. Has all the necessary accessories to get you up and running asap. Nic and sound are working perfect with good quality results.

Cons: Other reviewers having issues , guess I have been lucky.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned above a decent OC of my 8350 @ 4.5 Ghz (only required slight bump in voltage)
16 gigs of ram
250 gig SSD I TB storage drive
GTX 680

Runs flawless with ZERO issues after 7 months of use

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely Stable and Highly Recommended AM3+ Board

Pros: This is my first ASRock and it is definitely an amazing overall board. All great features from the 2 full 16x PCIe slots (only supported with the FX processors) and the 3rd 16x slot that really runs at 4x. This still gives you so much bandwidth to play with and as of right now games or graphics cards still can't even fully max out a 16x PCIe 2.0 slot so it really isn't a big deal that these aren't the latest 3.0 revision.

Overclocking is extremely easy and lets you dial in all your settings with their software tweaker. Once I found the sweet spot, I booted into the UEFI firmware (aka BIOS) and manually set them. Another great feature is that even if you screw up or become unstable and can't get the computer to power back up, you can cold boot it 3 times and it'll recognize that you're having problems and load the default settings in the UEFI. I bought this bundled with a FX-6300 and it is always OC'd to 4.5GHz. That paired with a GTX 970, it plows through any new game I throw at it at maxed out settings (Dragon Age:Inquisition, Assasin's Creed:Unity, Far Cry 4) On top of that, at full load, the board stays cool around 30C and the processor plays around 50C (with H60 liquid cooling)

You also have very granular fan controls that are always nice to have (those too can be changed on the fly using the software tweaker)

I installed Windows 8.1 on to a Crucial MX100 512GB drive with secure boot setup correctly on the board and it boots up to the desktop almost instantly. It's ridiculous.

Cons: Not really a con but more so something to be aware of when it comes to airflow and planning out your system but due to the lay out, certain low profile, HTPC-type, heatsinks may get pretty close or even get in the way of memory with really high heatsinks.

Only a con in my specific case, however was due to my Cooler Master 361 mini ATX case, the PSU was pushed up really close to the board and made the 24pin cables awkward to wire manage.

Other Thoughts: I currently have this setup as an HTPC in a closet that goes into 3 rooms (multiseat virtualization) using HDMI over ethernet and USB over ethernetr converters. Usually at least 1 or 2 are gaming and the 3rd is usually watching Netflix/Youtube or online browsing. No lag and no complaints.

Overall I've had this board for about 2 months and it's been really stable at the overclocks I always keep it at and don't have to mess around with the settings to keep it going. If for some reason this board died on me, I would definitely buy the same one again. Also because of this ASRock board, I'm going to be building another machine based off an ASRock m-ITX FM2+ system dedicated for editing and basic stuff.
