4 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: This motherboard is great! It boots up super fast and is really easy to configure stuff in the BIOS menu. Pretty his to install hardware wise. Games run really smooth.

Cons: Only gave it 4 eggs because every now and then it won't come out of hibernation so you have to use the power button to shut down which doesn't work right away so I always try to cut the power which doesn't work because as soon as you turn the power back on it is still on. Eventually after 10 or so minutes it will restart. Also the drivers need to be properly installed of the website. Other than these two things it works great.

Other Thoughts: Don't be mislead by the box; it supports Windows 10.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap Connectors

Pros: For pros and some of the cons see my earlier review.

Cons: The SATA3_5 connector bent, broke and destroyed a 2TB HDD, with the amount of pressure that any typical cable management job would give it. A library of over 600GB of games now has to be cherry picked and stuffed on a 500GB 5400 RPM laptop drive until I can find something to replace it.

Other Thoughts: Thank you Asrock for destroying my property with your garbage workmanship. The Z170 board I was going to get for a Skylake upgrade next month will now be a Maximus VIII Hero instead.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
The SATA ports meet or exceed industry standards. The included SATA cables have a locking lever which prevents accidental removal of the SATA cables.
Before removing the SATA cable from the SATA port on the motherboard, you must press and hold the lever to disengage lock.
Damage to the SATA port may occur if this is not performed.
As always, we appreciate your purchase and constructive reviews are welcome.

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

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsGood but not Great!

Pros: Works great when it works!!

Cons: This is my second board, first one was returned for warranty issues with overheating at 45C, now the second board is freezing up and, having power issues, I wiggle the main power connector and it works for a little while again. Tried using contact cleaner, looks to be cold solder joints due to when i start to push it a little it crashes over 45C also.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
If the mentioned 45c is CPU temperature, that should not be crashed nor considered as overheating except using parts has malfunctioned.
Since the second mainboard having same symptom freeze at 45c, please contact us with detail system configuration and problem at http://www.ASRock.com/Support/tsd.asp
We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsFatal1ty 990FX

Pros: This board outshines my old A--s board by a mile. I run games without a stutter now (even with an old video card).

Cons: Old bios was crummy and the new one is not much better. As in "user friendly". I run a dual boot system and it took me a long time jumping through hoops to get it to the point where I can boot either one with no difficulty.

Other Thoughts: I cannot wait to try this board with AMD's top 990 chip and tweaking!

2 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard...terrible support...

Pros: This is an awesome board on paper. It has a lot of features, and is capable of running the power-hungry FX 9000 series processors. All the hardware is excellent, plus it looks pretty cool. The BIOS is very easy to use, and lets you change pretty much anything you could ever want to change. It's easy to set up, and it comes with some okay-ish software.

Cons: This thing sucks. I mean...it has all these awesome features, but you can barely use any of them. The RAID controller is just AWFUL. It'll set it up, but the drivers don't work at all. Even if you get the newest ones from the ASRock site. It won't let you install Windows on a RAID. Even if you try to add a RAID as another drive to an existing Windows installation, it is like impossible to get Windows to even see the RAID. Next, we have the USB 3.0 drivers. Your USB 3.0 ports are pretty much pointless. Again, the drivers for them are horrible, and they don't have any new ones available since like 2013. Also the rear I/O panel shield is kinda bad...there is no metal in between the ports, it's just a sticker that separates them. Other than that it's empty space. Not bad on it's own, but considering everything else wrong with it, it goes to show ASRock's effort in putting this board together.

Other Thoughts: I want to like this board. It looks pretty cool, and it is supposed to come with some great features. But half the features don't work because the drivers are bad and won't work. Go with something else, seriously. My next board is not going to be ASRock, and now I'm stuck with this because there's nothing actually broken on the board, it's just ASRock's horrible driver support. Minus a star for the bad RAID controller, minus a star for the almost completely broken USB 3.0 drivers, and minus a star for ASRock's attention to detail in making the rear panel shield. You get a star for having a physical motherboard in the box, and a star for having a motherboard that is capable of POST-ing. That's two stars, but I feel like it barely earns that. Step up your game ASRock, don't pump out stuff like this that sucks. You really shouldn't put something out when Windows can't even use the drivers you give on the factory CD, much less anything you or a 3rd party has online.

For the RAID configuration, please visit the link below for guide.
The RAID driver (SATA Floppy Image) is available to download at link below.
However, mainboard is embedded AMD 900 series chipset and it standard from AMD.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice!

Pros: Nice appearance. Shipped with protective foam around it. Made for overclocking 8-core CPUs, which it does very well. BIOS is really nice and easy to figure out. Onboard audio is excellent! What's not to like?

Cons: Only con I can think of, is the fan controls are a bit iffy. If you set to manual overclock, then the fan controls go to full speed, anyway.

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace a Gigabyte 970 chipset board that would not handle overclocking my FX-8320. This one is similar in features but handles overclocking like a champ! Also, my LCD bar on the front of my case did not work properly with the Gigabyte board because Speedfan wouldn't read everything, but it works perfectly with this board. I could not be happier with this board! If its as durable as it appears to be, I'll be happy for years to come.

1 out of 5 eggsUnstable, finicky, and of low quality.

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Not that cheap for what I've had to put up with, loud, hot, and it only works 40% of the time I boot up.

Other Thoughts: Sit back and I'll tell you a tale. A tale of hope turning to frustration and disappointment.
This June of 2015 I decided to majorly upgrade my PC, by getting a new CPU and motherboard. With an online friend's help, I bought a CPU and a MOBO for around $220. The MOBO was the wrong socket for the CPU. I could not return the CPU, so I got a new MOBO; this MOBO.
Let me preface everything beyond this point with two caveats: This is an AMD build and as such it's a budget project. Everything that I had to buy AFTER the CPU and MOBO was an unexpected and extremely unwelcome expense. Second, it was a project that was meant to be a treat to myself for the birthday, so any problems have been magnified.
This MOBO has been a nightmare to get working. First off, no IDE connections, and no drivers that can recognize IDE adapters. I had to buy a new HD after finding out that an adapter wouldn't work.... after I bought that, too. That's $70 that I was ill-prepared to pay for an inadequate design and driver library. Second, the driver library in general is woefully lacking, as it couldn't recognize my portable disk drive of 9 years. I had to instal the OS (Win7 Professional) from a USB, which is a dodgy proposition at the best of times. And, now that the OS is on, I'm likely going to plonk down about $200 because the dang thing crashes on boot about 60% of the time, and startup repair is just an option to waste 40 minutes of my life doing NOTHING!
This is way too expensive for what it is and how poorly it works out of the box, and the kicker is that I'm afraid of taking it in to professional because it's quite likely that he/she won't be able to do anything, anyway.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Unfortunately, most of current mainboards does not support IDE drives but SATA as well.
For more information, please visit specification link below.
Specification link: http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/Fatal1ty%20990FX%20Killer/

For the crashing issue, please load the BIOS default.
Test with single memory module, switching another memory module if problem still persist.
Check the CPU is not overheating.
