High Density Glass Fabric PCB

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 moisture 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.

2 out of 5 eggsOkay for what you pay for it

Pros: Fairly inexpensive for the features you get. Installation was, for the most part, pretty easy. Driver setup was uneventful.

Cons: The construction quality of parts of the board could be better, but you should expect some compromises since AsRock undercuts their competition. A chunk of the USB front panel port broke off when I went to plug it in. ASRock wanted $55 for repairs, which wasn't worth it for something so minor since they wouldn't cover it under their RMA terms.

The layout of the board could use a little work, but this mostly involves inconvenience more than show stopping issues.

Other Thoughts: I'd give the board three stars for being fairly average for the cost, but deducted a star for ASRock's customer service.

I won't be buying another ASRock board after this experience, as I'd rather spend a bit more for a better quality board from ASUS, MSI, or Gigabyte, who I have had good experiences with throughout the years. This was the first time in about ten years I've gone outside those three brands for a motherboard, and I regret it, but at least it wasn't a total disaster. Basically, this is your typical "value" board, so expect a few compromises.

2 out of 5 eggsNot What I expected

Pros: Tons of Features in Bios.
Boots up but see cons.
Red and Black color Scheme is My Favorite colors.

Cons: Where to start. My board has the front USB 3.0 issue where I have to keep the cable unplugged or it wont even boot. The ram slots issue where only certain slots are working properly for 2 sticks. Then there's
a PCI express 2.0 slot not working properly I can I use 1 PCI express 2.0 slot. Drivers have been an issue. Had to use a second device (Mobile Phone) to download drivers (Lan Driver) from ASRock's website. Worse Asrock board I have ever purchased.

Other Thoughts: Every year I upgrade my PC and I always choose an Asrock Mobo. I've always been happy with their bang for your buck quality. Well that was always with their AMD Mobo's. I bought this Killer Intel Mobo with a 4790K 4 ghz processor to replace the AMD Asrock 990FX Extreme 9 board with the AMD FX 8350 8 core 4 ghz processor, thinking I was Upgrading. Really can't tell the difference. Performance wise they seem on par with each other and I game and stream on Twitch heavily. The whole AMD vs Intel thing is over exaggerated in my opinion. The only difference in Motherboards is it it seems as ASRock put more quality into their AMD boards than intel boards. I might be switching back soon. For now I can get by with this board even as flawed as it may seem. Just let down by ASRock. I feel like they dropped the ball compared to past Mobos. The Asrock 990FX Extreme 9 has to be the best ASRock board I've ever owned quality and performance wise and just as many bios features as this board. Thank you ASRock for making feel like I've wasted my money on this board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the USB 3.0 front header, please unplug the USB devices (if applied) to test.
Try with another known good chassis USB 3.0 connector.

For the memory slots issue, please clear the CMOS.
Reseat the CPU and cooler.
Test with single memory on each memory slot one by one to verify the slots.

2 out of 5 eggsQuite buggy

Pros: Tons of features for fine tuning to your needs.

Cons: This review is based on my experience with 2 identical
ASRock Fatal1ty Z97 Killer motherboards. All problems apply to both, so it's clearly design flaw.
1. When front USB 3.0 connected to motherboard it renders system very unstable. Disconnecting it solves the problem.
2. The LAN driver is terrible. KillerService.exe creates many problems for accessing websites and there's no clear way to install just drivers (calling tech. support didn't help as they had no idea how to install only drivers). So if you have the very same problem here's tip (learned hard way...) for you: Run LAN driver installation package again and choose Modify, then uncheck 3rd and 4th options pertaining Network Manager software, leaving only drivers option.
I really like ASRock products and usually they provide really good and stable boards but this one clearly has multiple issues. Updating BIOS firmware and installing latest drivers doesn't help to remedy them.

1 out of 5 eggsUnhappy

Pros: Easy install

Cons: Ram started out in A2 and B2 and got Post 4x short beeps System timer failure

Switched to A1 and B1 Same result

Put only 1 stick in on B1 and got to PC to boot....exchanged for 2nd stick on B1 to test Ram and got PC to boot

Put only 1 stick in on A1 and got to PC to boot....exchanged for 2nd stick on B1 to test Ram and got PC to boot

Put both sticks on A1 and B1 and PC booted

Both A2 and B2 appear to be bad memory slots

Other Thoughts: Seems people have alot of issue with the memory slots on these going to exchange it and maybe in two weeks ill get a new board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.
Clear the CMOS.
Check the mainboard’s CPU socket contact pins are normal (should be pointing same way and pattern).
Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan if socket pins are normal.
Test with single memory module again on each slot one by one.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent in both setup and stability.

Pros: Easy to install and was a snap to get up and running and all the while the board remained stable do no BSODs or freezing up, absolutely nothing. Very satisfied with the choice for this Mobo. Much better than the last one which ended up as an RMA.

Cons: Took me a little time to get used to the BIOS setup. Not long but was new to me as this is my first LGA-1150 motherboard and processor. up to last week I was still using LGA-775 quad core with a Foxconn Black-ops mobo. Still do actually on my back-up PC.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat deal

Pros: Can't beat the price for a non-basic Z97 board
M.2 socket for possible future use
Easy Overclocking (I didnt, but it would be easy to do)
Easy to maneuver BIOS
USB 3.0 header
Plenty of SATA III connections
SLI ready


Overall, I would purchase again. Time will tell, but so far it seems like ASRock is doing great stuff with cheap mobo options.

Cons: No power/reset buttons directly on the mobo. Might be too much to ask for at this price, but it's a great feature to have.

Other Thoughts: Not sure what benefit the Killer LAN really provides. "Supposed" to be better for gaming - Meh, I'd probably prefer just going with the company standard Intel, but at $95 after the rebate I couldn't pass this deal up.

5 out of 5 eggsAsrock does it again!!

Pros: Excellent entry level gamer board, A breeze to setup whats not to love. The Killer networks port make for awesome gaming. Buy this board if you are looking for a good solid stable gaming platform. I have the i7 4790k and noticed some saying they got the board DOA. Please take the time to flash the BIOS. I have purchased more than 50 Asrock boards in 2014 and never got a DOA board.

Cons: I cant think of any cons This board is amazing for the money Period!

Other Thoughts: I have this board running two GTX 770s and it is performing as well as high-end pcs. What is not to love. I see people leaving comments that obviously are new to system building. Like the on board video going bad? The CPU has the built in video the motherboard doesn't have a graphic chip-set. Keep it up Asrock I will continue to purchase your products through newegg.

2 out of 5 eggsBad "B" Channel on Board

Pros: Decent board layout. High quality heat sinks. Stylish. Feature rich.

Cons: Extremely tight layout of pins for case and speaker headers. No support on the back end of the board where the PSU plugs into it. Moulding on PSU connector slightly off.

But more importantly, B channel on the DIMMs appears to be dead. Loading DIMMS per the manual in A2-B2, or A1 - B1, for dual channel results in a four beep error code and no post. Replacing those DIMMs into A1-A2 results in a good post but single channel mode. Research online shows me that I'm not the only user to have these problems with this board. Will likely be seeking an RMA.
