2 out of 5 eggsGood until it stopped working.

Pros: This board was great when it worked.

Cons: I ordered 3 of these during the July 4th sale, and 2 of the 3 seemed to be part of the bad batch that people are talking about. It was fine for a few days, then when shutting down PSU and powering back on I can not get the board to POST. It's a shame because I feel that these boards would be great if they operated normally.

Other Thoughts: I started the RMA process, and here's hoping for the best. I'll update this review based on my experiences with my RMA and operations of the new boards.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Was great when it worked.

Cons: Recieved this mobo less than three months ago, and everything went off with out a hitch. About a month ago it failed to boot. I replaced and reset the cmos battery, which bought me a month, but it is now failing to boot again and replacing the cmos battery has no effect. Waiting on RMA.

A reviewer below me mentions something about a bad "batch." He may be right. I will change my rating if that's the case.

1 out of 5 eggsUnplug power, won't turn back on

Pros: Works fine...when it turns on

Cons: As another review states (the one before mine chronologically), this board fails to boot once you unplug the power from it. I'm assuming that this is a "batch" that myself and the other reviewer received. Anyhow, RMA'ing it and will adjust when I receive a working mobo.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks good, decent price. BIOS is easy to navigate, and manual is descriptive enough to get started

Cons: Not sure if it's the mobo or PSU, but the 24 pin took a little more wiggling and pressing than normal to fully seat.

Other Thoughts: ATX case, ATX mobo, but didn't quite reach the last 3 screws. It's common enough, just thought I'd mention it.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat, until you unplug, and re-plug the power.

Pros: It's good when it works.

Cons: If you ever unplug the power cable from the system, then plug it back in. The system WILL NOT POWER ON. Not even the slightest light. I downgraded back to my old motherboard and it boots up perfectly, which means this motherboard that I have received is faulty.

Other Thoughts: I have checked the PSU, the RAM, the 8 and 24 pin connectors, and the power button connector. All of which are fine. The system still remains without power.

A real shame, I have only had this motherboard a DAY and was looking forward to using my new i7.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent board great options

Pros: Fan control, overclocking, fast boot, easy RAID config, and good windows application tuning software suite

Cons: It came with 1.4 firmware and I had installed the OS, downloaded my applications before I did the 1.7 upgrade. I had RAID0'd two SSD's and when the board upgraded it reset the HDD controller to AHCI and my drives back to spinning platter. The RAID was in an error state. It was only an hour or so's work so I just initialized a new RAID and reinstalled the OS.

Other Thoughts: Probably a note in the firmware release notes about that issue so not docking an egg

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good value, able to SLI 2 cards.

Cons: Unfortunately no DR 4, but it seems to hold up nicer than the super high end boards.

Never ended up getting my rebate from ASRock

Other Thoughts: After a few months of intermediate usage, the machine I built around this board is holding up well.

I'd probably recommend this for people trying to keep under a certain budget. Since it's reliable so far.

4 out of 5 eggsJust what the DR. ordered

Pros: Does everything needed, The black and blue scheme goes well with my build. Has all the ports you could need,

Cons: With a GPU like the GTX 970, it covers one of the PCI slots to where it is not usable any longer.
