5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cheap PC/HTPC

Pros: Low Power. DC brick up To 19 volts, Works In Xubuntu 15.04 No Problems Here. I put it in a Rosewill Cube.

Cons: Only 512mb Memory Allowed to video. Otherwise Great.

Other Thoughts: I put Windows 8.1 & upgraded to 10 right away. Works great. The unknown device is the INF or the MBR download at asrock website..
I Think The AMD 5350 And The Board From AMD is A Bit Better. Especially Video. But Very Close.

5 out of 5 eggsNice quiet Win 10 build

Pros: While Intel says 8Gigs max ram on J1900, Asrock says 16Gb for this board. I put in two 8Gig sticks from their recommended list and bios/linux/win10 all see the 16Gigs just fine.
Used this to build a quite Win10 surfing/e-mail/Office box for the parents. 16Gigs of Ram/Samsung 850Evo 250Gig SSD/an old DVD drive I had around - all in a Rosewill Line M case. Unless you spin up the optical not a moving part in it. Use a 15 year old Thinkpad power supply. Quiet as quiet can be. Lovely.
Win10 has one 'unknown device' in the hardware manager but it doesn't seem to bother anything so OK. Will probably get sorted as Win10 matures a bit.

Cons: Well, I used a mid tower case so I guess I'll have to find some screen to cover the hole for the missing power supply.

Other Thoughts: I used the larger case as it didn't matter for my usage and I figured I'd have room for an extra drive or two if I wanted. Also lots of room for to let any heat dissipate.
It's no muscle machine but perfectly fine day to day computing box and totally silent. Love that.

5 out of 5 eggsdecent little guy

Pros: Paired with an old Crucial 64 gb ssd and a 4 GB of memory I had laying around. Bought a $10 laptop psu/brick for dc power. It draws about 18 W when idle. Win7 boot times are speedy, I'd guess around 30 s - far faster than my i7 laptop that has a mech drive.

Streaming videos via Silverlight/Flash works smoothly. I dropped in a PCI x1 card for accessing my network wirelessly (802.11n) - it works like a champ. I can stream compressed 1080p content easily, no hiccups.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you're piecing together a simple system, suggest pairing with a middlish ssd and you're be pleased with the reasonable performance and low power.

5 out of 5 eggsBest, low power, silent, and value available.

Pros: Runs cool and zero noise. 24/7 not one hickup with win7 and kodi {xbmc) with 4 cheap 12volt amps for excellent 7.1 surround. 25 dollors more for 12volt onboard jack is worth it... clean hookup.

Cons: none so far

3 out of 5 eggsGood value, poor Linux support

Pros: * Excellent performance in both Windows and Linux as a home server.
* The CPU never thermal throttles out of 2.4 "Turbo mode", even under heavy load jobs like compiling.
* Better than expected GPU performance. Was able to play TF2 at acceptable frame rate with low quality settings.

Cons: If you don't have physical access to this machine, it would be useless as a Linux Server. As others have pointed out, system occasionally hangs after a warm/soft reboot (via the reboot command) before reaching the grub bootloader.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to my review from 7/14

Pros: Great home server/media player board. Reliable. Everything works in Linux.

Cons: Still no power-on LED on the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: This is an update to my review from 7/14--it looks like I can't edit it. I use this motherboard in my home file server that also functions as a music player and a photo display. I was able to get everything on the board functioning under Gentoo Linux. It has been rock solid: the current uptime is 61 days, and I only reboot it when I upgrade the kernel or turn it off while away on vacation.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Passive heatsink for a low power system.
Installed FreeNas on it (using UFS, not ZFS), and it's running flawlessly.
Works fine on a 12VDC input.

Cons: Frankly, none. It does exactly what I expected it would do.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks well if you don't plug drives in often

Pros: Low power. Everything works.
Easiest bios update ever.

Cons: USB compatibility with my legacy usb2 scanner/printer and legacy usb2 wireless mouse was not good. Both are quite old. Solved that by putting a powered USB2 hub and plugging legacy devices into that.

Has a odd habit of blowing away the drive boot order in bios every time you plug in a usb drive of seemingly any kind. So seems I have to go into bios and redo the boot order every time I stick a thumbdrive or usb drive into a usb port. This is a serious pain in the rear for pretty much anyone one would think and you would think it would be the first problem fixed with a bios update.

If they are thinking this is a "feature", its not. I'd love to have the option to "lock" the boot order once entered.

Other Thoughts: none

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please connect main boot drive to SATA_1 port.
Load the BIOS default.
Set Boot Option #1 to desired drive.
However, desired drive can be boot by pressing F11 when system is started.
If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsChallenging in Linux.

Pros: Ok, so I bought this board because it's got a lot going for it on paper.

It's replacing an old mythtv server in a 2u rack. (CENTOS)

Way more power efficient, quadcore, enough sata ports, and as quiet as it gets. (With rubberband suspended HDDs"

Real snappy with a handmedown SSD.

I really like the idea of a BIOS connecting to the net to update itself (when it works)

Cons: Glad I'm not a linux newbie because this was a challenge.

I'm writing this in case it's of use to anyone :

1-The board doesn't power up correctly without a monitor plugged in. I wanted to use it headless, so this is a pain. On top of that, even if you would want to make a dummy plug, the DVI port doesn't have the analog pins so it doesn't work.
(I'm not risking plugging the resistors to the vga port)

2-The network chipset works fine but is confused driver wise. Let me explain. it needs realtek 8168 and every kernel/PS out there gives it 8169. So All my PXE boots are borked.

Regardless, you have to get the 8168 driver and install that

03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 11)
Kernel driver in use: r8168

3-Display wise it's also a mess. Out of the box, it sends out a primary display through vga, which means your dvi or hdmi lcd is always screen #2 by default. Had to get a custom xorg.conf file to reconfigure this oldschool.

4-No sata power to molex adapter included, so if you need molex power some case fans, add that to you cart when you buy this.

Other Thoughts: I have a feeling this board's bios is beta software.

Come on Asrock!

This product rocks, just needs an "ASUS level" bios/UEFI.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty much a perfect HTPC platform

Pros: Small form factor, quad core, ninja silent.

Cons: like others have mentioned it would be nice to have mSATA as I have mine in a very small case. not a deal breaker though.

Other Thoughts: I have this mobo in a Ecosmart case. I chose the Kingston 4GB ram from the Asrock approved memory list. Also got a Mushkin Chronos 240Gb SSD. Currently using the ac adapter from my wife's Gateway laptop. its a 60w, plug is 5.5mm btw.

Win7 installed perfectly off USB on the first try, never had to mess with anything in the BIOS. DLed the drivers off the Asrock site and that was that. Overall build and initial setup took maybe an hour. I'm running WMC and MediaBrowser3 with an eternal 3TB HDD.

Really impressed with this board. Everything is running great. No issues with build or software.
