ASRock ASRock

XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsink Design

The extra large aluminum alloy heatsinks take away heat dramatically. As the MOSFETs and chipsets areas are well covered by these heatsinks to protect them from overheating, CPU and chipsets can perform with lower temperature, and your motherboard and system will be more stable and reliable.

ASRock ASRock

Premium Alloy Choke

The new generation alloy chokes effectively increase up to 90% saturation current and feature a highly magnetic and heat resistant design, making the motherboard more efficient, stable and reliable.



Dual-Stack MOSFET for CPU Power

Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM) is another innovative MOSFETs design by ASRock. The silicon die area is increased by stacking two dies into one MOSFET. The larger the die area, the lower Rds(on). Compared to traditional discrete MOSFET, DSM with larger die area provides extreme lower Rds(on) 1.2mΩ, so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.



NexFET MOSFET for Memory Power

The next generation NexFET MOSFETs control the power supply to DRAM slots more efficiently. They provide lower RDS(on) 2.9mΩ, delivering higher efficiency and lower temperature.



NexFET MOSFETs in memory areas use a special design for protecting them from electrostatic discharge and offer up to 7.5 times the ESD protection levels compared to traditional MOSFETs.
*Human Body Mode.


12K Platinum Caps

Supreme 12K platinum capacitors with lifespans of at least 12,000 hours. Compared to other counterparts on high-end motherboards that merely have lifespans of around 10,000 hours, these platinum capacitors have 20% longer lifespans and provide more stability and reliability.

*Tested under industry standard 105 degree Celsius ambient temperature.



Sapphire Black PCB

ASRock does not overlook any details, even those tiny ones. With pure black PCB appearance, the new Sapphire Black PCB represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch.

ASRock ASRock

Ultra M.2 (PCIe Gen3 x4)
The World's Fastest M.2 Socket - PCIe Gen3 x4

The onboard M.2 socket is a new interface for connecting Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) SSDs or other devices. ASRock is the first in the world to implement PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 socket on motherboards. The ultimate Ultra M.2 interface pushes the speed up to 32Gbps which is 6X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5Gbps.

4 out of 5 eggsGood when you get a working one

Pros: All around nice board.

Cons: First was DOA.

Other Thoughts: Sent the first board back and Newegg replaced no problem. The second board has worked fine for almost a year now and still going. The board was worth the price and these things do happen. Still one off for DOA. Need better quality control for as many people that have gotten dead boards.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Board Even After One Year

Pros: I can't Believe I never put a comment on here after I bought this board a year ago. I was playing around here on Newegg and can't believe how many negative reviews I saw on this mobo so I felt the need to wright. This was the first ASRock mobo I ever bought, and I research my equipment hard core before I buy anything. I now have two other friends of mine that use this same board and love it. I did notice that some of the people that had issues were of lower tech levels, and yes there is a learning curve to a mobo. So much can be done with them, but you need to pick up the instructions now and then if you don't understand something instead of just saying it's broken and you had to do an RMA. If you are not moving on to the newer 170's this mobo rocks!

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsIt is a Solid Build

Pros: 10 SATA ports

Lowest cost z97 board with 10 SATA ports

Two seperate Gigabit NIC's

Has run every single USB keyboard and mouse my guests and myself have plugged into it.

Cons: CPU voltage control is not as precise as Asus z97 boards.

Fan control harder to tune in BIOS than Asus z97 boards (yet still easy enough to figure out).

No Q-connector for front panel!

Other Thoughts: Purchased this board for the guest room and coupled it with an i7-4790k that was donated to the project. Also managed to scrape together 16 GB of Trident-X 2400 MHz RAM for it.

The first thing I did was flash it to the latest BIOS (before adding any cards).

It overclocks easily, however some of the cpu voltage control is not capable of as much precision as my Asus z97 boards.

The board has been run in RAID 0 for a couple of months (with some older SSD's) untill recently, when I put an 850 pro Samsung in it (RAPID mode is very nice).

This machine has been run through the paces (moved from room to room, disassembled and re-assembled, unplugged, had every single component upgraded, swapped out, or pulled for other stuff) and it always comes to life when you push the power button!

The machine is used by one person or another every single day.

The reason for choosing this board was the number of SATA ports it has. On a number of occassions the board has been completely filled with SATA devices (has multiple external bays in the tower), and never a hic-up.

I cannot comment on the software, as I do not use it. Also cannot comment about on-board audio as I would never use it.

In the few months this board has been in service, I have not recieved a single complaint about it from any of the users! With as many times as this has had hands layed on it and it still thrives, I must give it 5 eggs.

System currenly has:
i7 4790k @4.5 GHz
Hyper 212 EVO (hence only 4.5 GHz)
4 x 4GB Trident-X @2400 MHz
Samsung 850 pro 256
Sound Blaster Zx
Corsair HX 650
APC Battery Backup (UPS)
2 internal HDD drives (equaling 4 TB)
Several external SATA bays
A friend making good use of it!

4 out of 5 eggsGood product, but...

Pros: It works.

Cons: I tried to register for the rebate form, but it said that my product had already been registered - something I hadn't done.

Other Thoughts: Go ahead with your purchase if you don't mind the company lying to you about that $15 rebate.

1 out of 5 eggsGiving these ASROCK clowns a 1 for poor design

Pros: None - when the basics don't even work, who cares about bells and whistles

Cons: This is my 2nd ASRock board and I feel ripped off. ASRock are straight up CLOWNS. Read on for why..

The manufacturer advertises all the ports are USB 3.0, which sounds like a good feature right? What they don't tell you is that none of your USB 2.0 devices like keyboard and mouse will work. There are some BIOS settings to tweak as far as support of legacy device in advanced > usb, however my NAME BRAND logitech and lenovo devices will still not work. I own 3 pairs of keyboard/mice, NONE worked on this piece of **** motherboard no matter how many settings I tweaked and played with. Long story short I was up til 2am on a work night trying to get this hunk of junk just to let me log into windows. Too bad they weren't SMART and made their stuff BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE. We can't have that, that costs an extra fifty cents not to aggravate the consumer!

So long story short to get around this entire mess I was lucky and still had some old PS/2 Keyboard. Go figure, PS/2 works, but NOT the much newer USB 2.0. So I got my keyboard working and finally was able to get into Windows through the ctrl alt del to logon. Now I run into a new problem. These CLOWNS did not make their driver CD compatible with SIMPLE KEYBOARD COMMANDS, you can not run the disk and use tab, arrows, space, enter to run the various drivers. Again that would make it too easy. Instead, I had to open the ctrl panel > device manager > and direct the LAN drivers and the USB drivers at my CD rom drive.

FINALLY that worked and I had USB mouse in Windows 7. But that was HOURS OF WORK. And If I ever want to format my drive? Who even knows if I will be able to, I'll have keyboard but I'm not convinced I can navigate the Windows install disk without a mouse.

Though someone said there was an on board USB 2.0 mouse port on the board (not through a header) in a review so I will try that tonight because when you install a new mobo you really should just clean reinstall windows, and not use an old installation and update drivers as I was forced to.

Other Thoughts: These guys are clowns.... this is a VERY POORLY THOUGHT OUT MOTHERBOARD. And I can't believe it got any award at all with how poorly implemented and not-backwards-compatible this board was.

For crying out loud, it took me more time to get the kb mouse working in windows (Has ASRock even heard of plug and play?) then to mount my coolermaster evo 212, ram, mount the board and connect all cables.

Why wasn't the BIOS set up from the get-go to automatically be compatible with 2.0 devices, why isn't there backwards compatibility?)

ASRock......... Do better.......... Do MUCH better.......... I am going with another motherboard manufacturer... you burned me on a bad Z87 extreme6, now the z997 extreme6 is a hunk of junk....

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please test with USB keyboard and mouse under UEFI/BIOS to verify all USB ports are working (verify hardware or software issue).
On the other hand, If your HDD/SSD drive already has pre-installed Windows that might not be worked due to hardware configuration has changed (different mainboard).
However, it recommend to install fresh Windows to avoid the problem.

As always, we appreciate your purchase. Honest and constructive reviews are welcome.

If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at
We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsNice board but....

Pros: Lots of nice features.

Cons: I was very proud of this motherboard ASRock went cheap on me. They disqualified my rebate application out of technicality. I applied for rebate online on the 10th day (it slipped my mind because I was still testing this motherboard after going thru 3 RMAs) and dropped it off at the post office on the same day. The thing is, the 10th day is a Sunday (Aug 2) and it was Civic Holiday the following day so my mail was post marked on the 4th. ASRock is a big company and I know they understand what "business day" means. But no. They went cheap and disqualified my efforts.

3 out of 5 eggsConstant Problems

Pros: Great BIOS UI, motherboard functions/looks

Cons: 1.) Constant USB reading failures

2.) No support for on/off USB function in BIOS

3.) Driver malfunctions

4.) ASRock App Store and A-Tuning is out of date. Very plain and hard to understand for the basic user. The functions don't do what they should be doing.

5.) Motherboards Sata ports are VERY confusing when trying to set up a system. It's not your typical "plug in slot 1-5" and so on. For example, if you plug a Sata port in port 2, ports 5-6 will be disabled. It's a very confusing and distasteful step to understand.

6.) Website is hard to understand when trying to install the drivers. Definitely out of date and constant problems when debating what driver will work with other motherboard drivers. Constant clashing against each other.

Other Thoughts: All in all, it was a great motherboard at first. I thought it was the drivers of my products, that being Razer to Logitech, but it's a motherboard issue. Do I plan on buying ASRock motherbaords again? Most definitely not. Do I think they are good? Why yes. But if you're willing to have constant clashing with drivers and weird things happen to your PC, then go right ahead. I would rate this motherboard a 2 star, but because it does its "basic" functions, I'll be rating it a 3 star. It's just constant driver issues and having my PC randomly being turned on.
