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.

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.

1 out of 5 eggsBuggy USB3.0 drivers

Pros: Overall a good mobo.

Cons: After installing USB3.0 drivers system stops recognizing usb mouse (Microsoft) and keyboard (Logitech K120). Tried drivers CD supplied with the motherboard, also downloaded latest USB3.0 drivers from ASRock website - same results... It just locks them out until you connect PS2 mouse and with on-screen keyboard uninstall usb3.0 drivers. Then everything fine but you end up having unrecognized device in Device Manager. Really weird issue.

Other Thoughts: ASRock's quality is slowly but surely goes south... It is a second motherboard I have problems with and support was very unhelpful

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, Inexpnsive Mobo

Pros: Lots of USB 3.0 ports, option for HD sound, and fit the first case I purchased. For $100, you can' really beat this full size, fully equipped mobo. I'm running a gtx 970, 4790 i5, 16gb 2400 ram, with a corsair CX750M power supply. All fits nicely inside my enermax mid tower.

Cons: No complaints, notice ---

IF YOU ARE SHOPPING FOR POWER SUPPLIES:

the CX750M 24-Pin plug is a little hard to get in to the mobo. At this point in fact I haven't been able to get the plug to click all the way down yet. I only spent about 5 minutes monkeying with it when I first noticed it wasn't fully plugged in so i'm sure I'll be able to get her snug.

Not enough of a problem to knock off 1 egg because i'm sure it's the plug the CX720M came with.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage Trash Bupkiss

Pros: -Looks Cool
-Functioned when It worked

Cons: -First one wouldn't even complete post, so RMA. Second one I got was pretty frigidity when installing but I got it to work eventually. However it ceased function on me after about a month and a half of casual use, for no apparent reason one day it worked the next It didn't.

Other Thoughts: I will not be RMA'ing the second one or buying any more Asrock products, I may have to high of expectations but when I buy something I expect it to work as advertised.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Solid Board

Pros: Very stable easy to configure motherboard. UFI bios are great easy to use easy to update. Never had any problem using this board with anything I have plugged into it. Just started using the M.2 socket for a Plextor SSD and it just keeps getting better. Been using this board for just short of a year and have had no issues. Very pleased.

Cons: has what I consider to be a poor performing audio chip. Since I have a high end audio card this was not really much of a detriment for me. All I could think of to put in this section of the review.

Other Thoughts: Not a gamer. Just an enthusiast. I just surf the net and play music with my desk top. This board rocks. What you get for the price is amazing value.

Pros: I had no problems whatsoever with this MB. Updated the BIOS using a flash drive and instant flash. Overclocked a devil's canyon 4690K in a heartbeat to 4GHz on air and left it there, it runs great. Very happy with this purchase.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsOwned it for 8 months - great board so far

Pros: Incredible number of great features for the money. Unlike another ASRock board I had purchased, this one isn't flimsy. With the other one, it was impossible to plug the power supply and video card into it without fear of cracking the board.

Cons: 1.) A couple of the screw holes were very tough to get to, but not impossible.
2.) The description of this board is confusing when it comes to the USB ports. To clarify: there are 8 ports, all in the back of the board. Supposedly some of them are USB 3.0 but it's impossible to tell from the product description which are which and the ports are not all labeled on the motherboard and the ones that are labeled are confusing so you really cannot tell which ports are USB 3.0,

Other Thoughts: Not sure why they just didn't manufacture this board with all USB 3.0. Anything that uses 2.0 will be compatible with a USB 3.0 port.

5 out of 5 eggsBought Another One !!!

Pros: Build # 4 , it is stable and solid, .. Most buyers want to buy a $100 motherboard and Clock it to extraordinary Numbers immediately, in my experience ,,, Gradual Overclocking always works best, and reduces the probably of damaging the board, Overclock and run it for while , week two weeks. then overclock some more.

Cons: None, All Works, No Hiccups, On number 4 installed and Working. Windows 7 Pro. 8 to 24 gigs memory, i3 , i7 , i5

Other Thoughts: It Works,,, Slow Your Roll. Take your time this is a good board, Just Remember it is $100.00 ,, Not going to make your bed for .or cook you breakfast.

1 out of 5 eggsNever worked

Pros: Looked great, matched everything else I bought, plenty of space for multiple graphics cards and other cards

Cons: Never worked

Other Thoughts: Plugged all my cords and ram and everything else flipped the power switch and nothing. Graphics card had power but it wouldn't turn on. Rather frustrating but willing to give it another go. Filed for a RMA for a replacement lets hope they replace it.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdate from last review

Pros: Still works(somewhat).

Cons: Well, the OC capabilities do not function properly. After going into the BIOS and setting overclock on my i5-4670 to a simple 4.0, my system goes BSOD. It would go into errors of all types and give me the safe mode option. Reset back to default? Everything is fine. Them I would set XMS for my memory to overclock to 1600 from 1333(they are originally 1333 but sold as 1600) and would often get BSOD memory dumps, over and over again. So bottom line is I am unable to overclock anything. When you put everything to default she runs like a champ.

Other Thoughts: I knocked it 2 eggs after giving it 5 eggs last time for each item I can't overclock. The board is still a sound board without all the overclocking, I also had a weak CMOS battery at the start and had to change it out. My clock was ALWAYS off by 2 hours or so and it would NEVER stay where I wanted it. Changed CMOS battery out and all is great with time settings. I am disappointed that my slight overclocking desires on this board are void. I'll still keep it around until my yearly upgrade on every black Friday, but still disappointing.
