Some sensitive digital components on the motherboard are vulnerable to power surges, the excessive current may cause your system to malfunction immediately. ASRock Full Spike Protection includes various technologies to prevent your motherboard's components from being damaged by these unexpected voltage spikes.
AM1H-ITX AM1H-ITX Surge Protection

Protects the motherboard from excessive currents from the power supply unit.
AM1H-ITX AM1H-ITX Lightning Protection

The onboard Realtek 8111GR LAN chip is protected against sudden and violent voltage spikes caused by lightning.
AM1H-ITX AM1H-ITX ESD Protection

USB: Added ICs to protect the onboard USB ports from electrostatic discharges.

LAN: Prevents the onboard LAN from being damaged by electrostatic discharges.

MOSFETs: MOSFETs in critical areas use a special anti electrostatic discharge design.
AM1H-ITX This motherboard supports AMD AM1 Socket A-series and E-series Quad-Core/Dual-Core APUs up to 25W. They are designed for minimizing power consumption while delivering powerful performance.
AM1H-ITX 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.
AM1H-ITX AM1H-ITX ASRock is determined to use high quality materials to build the best motherboards, that's why all the capacitors on this motherboard are built with 100% solid capacitors. These solid capacitors bring long lasting durability and ultra stable performance.
AM1H-ITX Two USB 3.0 5Gbps ports plus two SATA3 6Gbps ports for supporting all of your peripherals with fast data transfer speed.
AM1H-ITX Even though this convenient mini-PCIe slot cannot be used for cooking scrumptious bacon pancakes, it still proves itself to be very useful for connecting an WiFi card that grants wireless Internet connection.
AM1H-ITX This ASRock motherboard uses a Realtek Gigabit LAN chip to support extremely fast Internet connections.
AM1H-ITX Complete with all three types of most used connectors! Packed with a D-Sub + DVI + HDMI + Printer port combo for connecting all of your peripherals.

A-Tuning is ASRock's multi purpose software suite with a new interface, more new features and improved utilities, including EZ OC, Auto Tuning, XFast LAN, XFast RAM, OC Tweaker, System Browser, Live Update, Tech Service and a whole lot more!
AM1H-ITX UEFI Tech Service

Contact ASRock Tech Service by sending a support request from the UEFI setup utility if you are having trouble with your personal computer. Users may try to choose the category of the issue they have encountered, describe the problem in detail, and then attach an optional picture or log file for our technical support team.
AM1H-ITX FAN-Tastic Tuning

Configure different fan speeds for respective temperatures using the graph. The fans will automatically shift to the next speed level when the assigned temperature is met.
AM1H-ITX Interactive UEFI

Some people might complain that the BIOS configuration on old computers aren't user friendly enough. Well, not any more! ASRock Interactive UEFI is a blend of system configuration tools with cool sound effects and stunning visuals. The unprecedented UEFI provides a more attractive interface and brings a lot more amusement.

In a world where time is money, why waste precious time everyday typing usernames to log in to Windows? Why should we even bother memorizing those foot long passwords? Nobody has time for that! Just plug in the USB Key and let your computer log in to windows automatically!
AM1H-ITX Easy Driver Installer

For users that don't have an optical disk drive to install the drivers from our support CD, Easy Driver Installer is a handy tool in the UEFI that installs the LAN driver to your system via an USB storage device, then downloads and installs the other required drivers automatically through the Internet. Completely no CD or optical disk drive required!
AM1H-ITX AM1H-ITX Dehumidifier

Dampness kills most electronics, so it's a better idea to keep your personal computer dry. Now users may prevent motherboard damages due to dampness by enabling Dehumidifier. When it is enabled, the computer will power on automatically to dehumidify the system after entering S4/S5 state.

2 out of 5 eggsBroken

Pros: Nice and cheap mini-ITX board. Plenty of features and would be great for a small home server or HTPC.

Cons: Mine died. Dead boards aren't really a new thing to me and I was considering just returning it for another one, but the reviews on this one are quite accurate. Although mine did eventually post after resetting the BIOS, it has the weird habit of refusing to if you let it sit for a while or unplug it and move the station. It won't post again until you do another BIOS reset. As others mentioned, it can be finicky about its power supply, so that's a possibility, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Going with ASrock's parent company ASUS for this build instead.

Other Thoughts: I would have stuck with it if I didn't know I might need to move this station often. If it were just going to sit in a corner all day and night and stay on, I might have kept it, although it would have eventually died on me. A bad BIOS is a pretty good sign this board is on its way out.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsProblematic Board

Pros: Low price. Four SATA3 ports.

Cons: With "Compatability Support Mode" active, the ASMedia provided SATA ports seem to be incompatible with my run-of-the-mill SATA devices.

Doesn't like being booted headless.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as part of a bundle with a Sempron 3850 to power a new "headless" home server running Ubuntu.

In the process of setting it up, I found that it would hang or drag during boot when I had drives connected to the integrated ASMedia provided SATA ports. Sometimes the problem happened during device detection, other times, at the screen just before getting the option to enter BIOS setup mode.

After some experimentation, I found that the problems could be avoided by disabling CSM (Compatibility Support Mode) in the "Boot" section of the BIOS setup screen.

Once I finished configuring and testing the system, I shut it down, detatched the monitor, moved it to a closet and booted it. Rather than working as expected, it gave 5 beeps and then seemed to hang. According to ASRock's support site, 5 beeps means a VGA card wasn't detected (I'm using the integrated GPU). After more troubleshooting I've determined that when it doesn't find a monitor attatched to one of the motherboard ports, it looks for a graphics card. At some point, it also re-enables compatibility support mode.

It seems then that this board is ill suited for use as a headless machine. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about it, but it is incredibly frustrating.

2 out of 5 eggsPossible PSU Active PFC Compatibility Issue?

Pros: After going through 3 RMAs through Newegg, finally received a motherboard that works but with a catch that might be related to what power supply is used with it. In Windows 7, the overall Windows Experience Index scores at 4.2 for its lowest sub-score with Graphics (Desktop performance for Windows Aero). Once working, it's a decent motherboard with nice features but getting it to finally work was a nightmare (see Other Thoughts for more information).

Cons: I have never had to RMA anything with Newegg until coming across this motherboard 3 times! Apparently, there are major compatibility issues with what power supply unit is used with it (see Other Thoughts section). If I had known the troubles I would come across, then I would not buy this motherboard at all!

Other Thoughts: One of the things I noticed between the first two and the final motherboard that was RMA'ed was that during the installation wizard of Windows 7 SP1 Pro 64-bit, it would not recognize the USB 3.0 ports. The first two that was RMA'ed would reboot randomly during installation of Windows. This occurred with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 installation attempts.

By the time I received the 3rd motherboard, I also obtained the Thermaltake TR2 500W PSU and decided to give that a try instead of the Corsair CX430 that I had been using with the first two. It was with the TR2 PSU that I finally have a working system now!

To test my theory that this motherboard is very likely dependent on the PSU used, I swapped and used the Corsair CX430, which would boot the BIOS fine but not load Windows 7 at all (the loading Windows logo would animate, but then the screen would go blank and no video signal). Swapped back in the Thermaltake TR2 and things are working fine (still haven't had any issues writing this sentence). The only difference I can determine that might be the compatibility issue is the use of Active PFC (the Thermaltake TR2 does not have, while the Corsair CX430 does). If this is the case, then the manufacturer needs to investigate the electrical compatibilities between different PSUs.

For reference, I am currently writing this review using the ASRock AM1B-ITX motherboard with the following:
-AMD Athlon 5350 AD5350JAHMBOX
-Patriot 8GB (two 4GB DIMMS) PG34G1333EL DDR3 1333MHz (9-9-9-24)
-Intel 80GB SSDSA2M080G2GC
-Cooler Master Elite 130 RC-130-KKN1 Case
-Thermaltake TR2 500W non-PFC power supply
-Microsoft Windows 7 Professional with SP1 64-bit

5 out of 5 eggsWorls great

Pros: Little motherboard that can take a full size video card. No problems using G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: Figured I'd chime in after a lot of talk about systems not posting while trying to using two sticks of RAM. I'm using G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 and it POSTs with no problem.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None at the moment, supposedly has 4 sata slots...would nice for an ultimate AM1 ITX build

Cons: Board was DOA, no beeps to signify trouble, no video...NADA.

Other Thoughts: Given all the 1 star reviews here I am starting to think that this might just be a bad board designed by ASRock. I have never had an issue with them before so I will give them one more chance and waiting on a replacement from newegg.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please try steps below to check if its POST.
Clear the CMOS.
Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan.
Test with single memory module (non-ECC, un-buffered).
Test with onboard VGA.
If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at We will assist you shortly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mini-ITX solution

Pros: Nice range of support for such a small form-factor. Supports USB charging, even when the system is powered down.

Cons: "Only" four SATA-3 ports, and "only" supports 16GB of RAM.

Other Thoughts: Powers my FreeNAS 9.1 server! Fits in a Cooler Master Elite 130 Mini-ITX case, and works great with an AMD Sempron 3850 Kabini Quad-Core APU and ADATA XPG V1.0 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin RAM, all powered by a CORSAIR CX430 ATX power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Everything worked out of the box. The BIOS was very nice, detected everything without any problems. I didn't have a CD drive on my PC, and the option from BIOS to download drivers to a USB didn't work well, but I could download drivers from AsRock's website.

Running Windows Server 2012 R2, no issues.

Ram detected and running perfectly.

No issues I can see.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Paired it with a 5350 Kabini Processor

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Motherboard - With a Catch

Pros: Fantastic platform for day-to-day computing, a home server or a HTPC.
The 25W TDP is impressively low considering the punch an AMD 5350 APU packs with its surprising GPU and quad cores.
Also, this is one of the very few AM1 boards that comes with 4 SATA ports - a must for a small home server.

Cons: Very finicky with PSUs. See other thoughts.
BIOS UI is cheesy - not important.

Other Thoughts: For all of you who thinking they received a DOA motherboard, READ THIS as it was likely in perfect condition.

This is my second AM1B-ITX, purchased one month later. As for the first one, the board refuses to boot Windows 8.1 or event the Windows setup but can still operate flawlessly when in its UEFI BIOS. The SSD used contains a know to be working Windows 8.1 U1 installation.

I have 2 distinct and know to be working PSUs. Both of them are totally incompatible with the AM1B-ITX but work perfectly with several other motherboards. Using an pico-PSU with the AM1B-ITX works flawlessly.

I contacted ASRock about the issue and, although they are not denying my observations, they were not very proactive to do something about it. I was recently told that the problem would be escalated.

The board is VERY finicky about the PSU you use with it. Both the 500W Antec 80-Plus and the Corsair CX430M FAIL with this motherboard.

The 80W and 90W pico-PSU both work perfectly.

I really hope ASRock will be able to nail this issue down. In the mean time, if you think you received a DOA board, think twice. It is MOST PROBABLY a PSU issue.

5 out of 5 eggsLow Price & Low Power

Pros: Great general purpose web-box for document editing and watching some videos. I also did the newegg combo of cpu, mb, and case.

Cons: I had a lot of trouble getting the rear USB 3.0 ports to work. The cd & the asrock website have asmedia usb 3.0 drivers, but unfortunately this is only for the front usb 3 ports. The rear ones use amd usb 3.0 drivers. I finally found them on a HP site for a ProLiant DL185 G5 Server. The file name is sp58736.exe (633 KB). Beyond this solvable problem I guess single channel memory would be the only big con.

Other Thoughts: Cooler master elite 130 mini-itx Case
ASRock AM1B-ITX Motherboard
AMD Sempron 3850 CPU
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600
ARCTIC MX-2 thermal paste
