3 out of 5 eggsNice, but lousy USB 3.0 placement

Pros: -Great board
-lots of features
-easy install
-not too expensive
-Usb 3.0 header

Cons: -USB 3.0 header when in use blocks and decently long video card with cooling
-I/O tray is horrible

Other Thoughts: FIX THE DANGED USB 3.0 PORT I EXPECT A USB 3.0 PCIe HEADER CARD TO FIX THIS!!!!! I bought a case specifically to have a USB 3.0 header and not pass-through's just to find out i cant use them I am expecting a manufacturer response on this immediately ASRock!!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Actually, the front USB 3.0 header does not block the long VGA card.
We tested with R9 290X and GTX 970 VGA cards, those are known larger cards with no problem.
Those VGA cards can be installed and does not block or interfere with front USB 3.0 connector.
Please visit ink below for test result.

1 out of 5 eggs2 Bad Boards!

Pros: None MB only worked for about 1 week!

Cons: 1st board died after 1 week, after almost 1 month RMA process with ASRock I got a replacement - put it together and guess what - another dead board!!
Already replaced with a Gigabyte which is running like a champ!
Don't waste your time on this!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

Sorry to hear that replacement mainboard having problem.
All RMA mainboards had been fully tested by technician to assure working fine before shipped to avoid back and forth shipping.

Please trouble shoot the mainboard with known good components.
• Unplug the ATX power, remove all components from mainboard.
• Remove the mainboard from chassis, place it on mainboard’s box.
• Clear the CMOS.
• Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan.
• Test with single memory module.
• Test with onboard video.
• Connect the monitor.
• Plug the 24 + 8 or 4 pins ATX power.
• Connect the chassis power switch to mainboard, and try again.

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 eggsAwesome!

Pros: if you are wanting to build a very good overclocking computer on a budget i STRONGLY suggest you buy this motherboard.

Cons: two of the fan connections are alittle difficult to connect with the motherboard installed. that is all.

Other Thoughts: i was expecting to "get what i paid for" but i must say i am pleasantly surprised by this mobo. strongly suggest.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: good price, reliable, fast, looks good

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Everything loaded right up after plugging in. My last motherboard was 8 years old and the BIOS was unimpressive. This BIOS is great with a GUI and mouse controls. Maybe all BIOS have that now but I'm a little behind the times.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Motherboard at a Great Deal

Pros: I bought this item when it was on the Newegg Spotlight deal. I really wanted to build a nice gaming rig, but didn't want to break the bank, so this deal fell out of the sky for me.

Very sturdy build, and easy to setup/use. I haven't played around with all the settings, but I've been using it for about a month now and I'm loving it.

Cons: 0

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Motherboard!

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsASRock Z97 1150 MOBO

Pros: Very easy simple mobo to use. Things are labeled well and readable. Has all the thigns for OCing your cpu and it even has some for doing RAIDS and all that happy stuff.

Some people said the MOBO was DOA or they had to RMA but mine worked right off the box.

Cons: None that I have had

Other Thoughts: The mobo has a option to increase the usb power to make your Iphones actually charge quick from a computer.

3 out of 5 eggsso-so

Pros: It's pretty with the anodized blue heat sinks, the layout of the board components is clean, the 6 sata connectors are oriented so 90 degree cables are not required. Easy BIOS update, and boot disk priority setup is a breeze with the simply layed out interface. The system is running air cooled at 91 degrees F using the 4 case fan plugs provided.

Cons: Assembled a new system to replace to 8 year old one (XP/WIN 7 32 bit dual boot) and looked forward to be WOWED. I wasn't. Assembled the mobo into a Rosewell Blackhawk ATX case, installed the new Cool Master 650W PSU, added my new I5-4690K CPU, added 16 gig of G Skill Ripjaws, Added a new Sapphire R9 280 video card, threw in my Lite-On DVD from the old case, added a new 120 gig SSD with Win 7 64 bit OS, 3 Terrabytes of addition HDD's and fired it up. One PCIE X1 slot is DOA. Fine I can live with that. I have 2 more PCIE x 1 slots. Moved the sound card down to one of them and everything works fine. Go through the easy internet BIOS update to install v1.50 (requires cable to wireless router for some reason) and viola: no sound from the sound card (slot doesn't recognize my card) and now there is no case front panel headphone jack operation. No sound output at back of motherboard either. I roll back the BIOS to previous version V 1.40 and recover sound from my sound card (Sound Blaster w/latest drivers). The slot originally mentioned is still DOA.and now so is the headphone plugs at the front of the computer case. Checked all the plug connections to the motherboard from the case, PSU and reseated all the cards and RAM. Issue persists. The 4 x 2.0 and 2 x 3.0 USB ports are working at the front of the case. Wish they would verify the latest BIOS updates actually help rather than hinder operations.

Other Thoughts: Wish there had been 2 more fan plugs provided. Had to remove the side case fan as there wasn't a plug left over for it to connect to.

3 out of 5 eggsAverage

Pros: Good amount of cpu fan slots.
Nice to have VGA/HDMI for testing without graphics card.
Inexpensive
Really like the lock in mechanism for the PCI slot

Cons: HD audio is poorly placed, only way to plug it in is to go directly across board. Makes it cluttered.
Ram slots are so close to the CPU that my heat sink covers 2 of the RAM slots.

Other Thoughts: Very small board, almost like a micro ATX board.
Took some tweaking to get Instant Flash via internet to work, but ended up working.
