FM2/FM2+ APU Support

This motherboard is compatible with both AMD FM2 and FM2+ APUs. Please note that some new features may be only supported by FM2+ APUs.


FM2A55M-VG3+

What you've never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity - or whatever you'd like to call it. And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. 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.

1 out of 5 eggsFollow up review: NEVER BUY IT!

Pros: Nothing it's garbage

Cons: Everything it's just bad it's dead now

Other Thoughts: This motherboard has been a problem from day one. Thought it was grounding to the case nope it wasn't this thing is just bad. I've built well over 100 computers in my life and I've never had a worse experience with a motherboard. I'm not an amature I do this for a living I'm an I. T. Manager for a large company. This thing would not post when I first got it for no apparent reason and when I finally did it would take 10 mins to get it to post again after shutting down. It kept going for about 4 months and now today nothing. It blue screened on me a few times as well. Asrock support is useless too when I asked them for a replacement they sent me an automated message telling me to update my bios, Yea I already looked at that and it was at its most recent version. So, what ever you do DON'T BUY THIS MOBO. I will never buy another asrock product not because I got one bad peice of hardware because that happens... No because their customer service is horrible. Buy this mobo if you want nothing but headache and then be forced to buy a different brand like gigabyte or msi! Thanks a ton asrock!

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: The box looked very nice and the pretty words described a motherboard that could have been good.

Cons: Motherboard arrived doa, the picture to the screen would randomly crash even within the bios. Sent board and cpu back to newegg for replacement. Waited over two weeks to find out that they were out of stock and that I was going to just receive refund and that would take an additional week. Very unhappy with newegg on this one.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggs2 strikes and you are out

Pros: Can't give it any.

Cons: If I could give this 0 stars, I would. I sent first back, cause it wouldn't post. 2nd one not only doesn't post, but doesn't even give error for no ram installed. Yes, I had power to every thing and troubleshooted every thing. I wouldn't buy another asrock board for 1 penny!

Other Thoughts: Not so much the money, don't waste your time!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

Sorry to hear second mainbaord having same issue (no POST).
Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.
Unplug the ATX power, remove all components from mainboard.
Remove the mainboard from chassis, place it on mainboard’s box.
Clear the CMOS.
Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan.
Test with single memory module (non-ECC, un-buffered).
Test with onboard VGA (CPU with APU or test with VGA card).
Reseat video card firmly and 6+6 power (if applied).
Plug the 24 + 4 pins ATX power.
Plug the chassis power switch to mainboard, and try again.
If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

2 out of 5 eggsAsrock FM2A55M-VG3+

Pros: The board is small and simple for quick builds and the BIOS setup is very nice. I bought this board for use in our church office. It will not be used for gaming or extensive graphics so I thought that the A4 4000 3.0 ghz processor would serve our needs very well. And it appears that I was right EXCEPT for the memory issues listed below

Cons: This is where my frustration will show. The board came to me with a BIOS that would not operate properly with an AMD A4 4000KLHBOX. Once I updated to bios v1.9, the issues with the processor stopped -- but the issues with memory began -- simply put, the board will not recognize 8 gig of PC1333 GSKILL memory. It works fine with 4 gig, but if you add the second stick it dies. It will not even POST with 8 gig. And I've switched the two sticks to see if it was just a bad stick -- no joy. I tried the memory in another computer and it was fine. I looked over the memory compatibility list from ASROCK and I find that there are only a very few combinations which allow 8 gig of memory -- none that use GSKILL F3-1333 4 gig sticks. Very frustrating. Now I'm stuck with a board that is only marginally better than the Intel 775 board that I replaced, and I've spent a couple of hundred dollars. It is unlikely that I will use this brand again with these issues.

Other Thoughts: Study the memory list from the manufacturer's site VERY carefully. Select only the memory that is listed there. Do not assume that you will be able to transfer existing memory from an old board to this one.

And be prepared to flash the BIOS before you attempt installing software.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize that you having difficulty with memory configuration.
For the issue, please turn the power off, clear the CMOS.
Reseat the CPU and cooler.
Test with single memory module on each memory slot.
Set the UEFI BIOS default.
If possible, test with another pair of memory (dual channel ready) to isolate the issue.
If you have any technical issues please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsOkay board

Pros: It's cheap
It has everything needed to function without any of the bells and whistles
mATX form factor

Cons: Not the greatest thing for overclocking
The small form factor can be an issue with heating
No bells and whistles
No USB 3.0 support

Other Thoughts: This board isn't bad for what you pay for, and I was on a really small budget when I got this board. But I am now running into issues with heat because of how cramped the board is, as it is a slightly smaller than the normal mATX I'm use to.

Once I am able to get a full ATX board to replace this, I am going to be throwing it into a HTPC build I have planned.
