3 out of 5 eggsH97 Performance

Pros: Just like the first reviewer, the first motherboard came in DOA. I had to eat the cost of shipping back to Newegg and by the time I received the second motherboard and tested it, the time has run out to get the promised rebate.
ASROCK has shown a total lack of regard for the buyer by not allowing enough time for a problem with their defective products before the 30 days filing time expires.

Cons: What is the quality control on these motherboards. I would have given them higher marks except for the first reviewers and my motherboards being received DOA.

Other Thoughts: It is too bad that the first reviewer was not aware of the clips on the SATA cables. His description of how the motherboard did not respond was exactly as my DOA motherboard did not respond.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear AsRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. AsRock mainboards are fully tested to assure that they're working before shipped.

3 out of 5 eggsFollow up

Pros: After ruing this with many different configurations I though a follow up would be good. Still a good looking board and it has had two BIOS updates now allowing for auto over-clocking of K chips and support for the Pentium G3258. Plenty of options to play with.

Cons: Its a solid board but there are some problems. Control over the voltage is limited. Set VCore voltage does not always transfer into a windows environment. I could not get the VCore above 1.25v which limited overclocking. Also the memory controller struggles with clocks. Out of three sets of DDR3 none would run at 1600. Two had XMP profiles and still would not make it past 1400. The third was 1866 and it would only run at 1400. I tried both 1.1 and 1.4 BIOS. I would however run with tighter timing and 1T command rate

Other Thoughts: Really its not a bad board. It ran a G3258 at 4.4Ghz 1.19v with Prime95, Intel Extreme Tuning and OCCT for days without an issue. But the memory would not do 1600. Remember the H97 is not really an over-clocking board.

1 out of 5 eggsNever POSTed

Pros: Has a lot of features for a cheap board. Have an Asrock Extreme4 z77 that to this day is amazing. This one is not. In theory, this will run Xeon's, although perhaps not mine (E3 1231v3) - not sure. I didn't do enough homework on the board and assumed it had compatibility after I saw Xeon proc's listed on their website. By the way, for fun, try looking at the documentation for this device - there's no troubleshooting steps to be found anywhere.

Cons: Powered on without any display, external or otherwise. Was it incompatible memory? Incompatible CPU? Incompatible operator? Who knows... There's no LED's to indicate what the problem might be on the board short of telling me which BIOS it's loading off of. I'm glad it had every novelty in the book, but throw in some sort of POST troubleshooting measures somewhere and I'd justify the cost. People say this is a well made board. Welp, the SATA port came loose during disassembly making this impossible to return. Top notch.

Other Thoughts: Custom builds have historically cost me more money than they're worth. My advice to you: buy a laptop, or better yet, get somebody else to build it and make them pay for RMA's and unfair restocking fees. I don't think people should have to pay these fees if it doesn't do what you paid for it to do.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
To unplug the SATA cable, it must press and hold the lever (metal latches) to disengage SATA cables to avoid damage the SATA ports and affect the limited warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsGot RMA

Pros: Works perfect.
Efficent choice when I bought this.

Cons: Received bent cpu pins

Other Thoughts: Although it was Newegg's fault who sent me the open boxed item, AsRock replaced my board at no cost. They usually charge $50, but since I received the broken one and requested RMA really fast. They approved the replacement. Thank you, AsRock.

5 out of 5 eggsH97 Overclocker

Pros: For a budget board its extremely good looking. The ASRock H97 Performance is a entry level gaming board that has some basic over clocking features. It's perfect for someone just getting into over clocking and building. At sub $100 ASRock delivers the goods. First the BIOS is the basic UEFI and simple to use. No confusing graphics or nomenclature. It will run any of the 1150 CPU line including the new Pentium G3258 that is unlocked. And it will over clock it! Also all 1150 i3, i5, i7 CPUs are supported. It has everything you need and nothing extra. Well thought out package. First its well packed with a closed foam support. SATA cables and manual. Basic I/O plate and that's it. It has nice features: Quality heat sinks, Caps, Chokes, power connectors, PCI-e 16 3.0, 8 Phase, Intel gigabyte lan, 6 SATA 3, Purity sound 2, and supports Crossfire. It also has plenty of connectors. DVI, HDMI, D Sub many USB 3.0 and 2.0 and plenty of fan headers. ASRock puts its money where a PC enthusiasts wants it. In the power phase and the Intel lan. Not in a fancy box or I/O plate. If your having difficulty over clocking a CPU with this board then check out Techpowerup.com for Haswell's over clocking guides.

Cons: But a board at this price has to have its liabilities. It does not support SLI, ram will top out at 1600, (which is not bad), over clocking is limited but ASRock has some tricks up their sleeves and there budget boards have always done this well and this board is no exception. It over clocks the CPU! The front header is in a odd place but the SATA connectors are at the bottom out of the way of the GPU. But they are vertical which will get mixed reviews. Crossfire is limited as the second PCI-E port will run at 4x. There is no M.2 or SATA express found on most of the Z97 boards

Other Thoughts: ASRock is knocking on the big boys doors with this Non Z over clocking gaming Motherboard. With stunning good looks and all the correct features a new PC builder wants without the huge price tag. I'm really impressed with what they deliver in this price range. Sure others have deducted points for no fancy new connectors or Killer nic. But at this price this board deserves 5 stars all day. Did I mention its under $100! I haven't paid less than $100 for a over clocking board in 5 years. Thank you ASRock. This is what you do well.

2 out of 5 eggsOpen box

Pros: Newegg has the lowest price. Only $10 more expensive than B85 Pro 4

Cons: The package has dents and was already opened. No seal or sticker that proves it is new. Even the guide and driver CD case inside are damaged. Motherboard looks fine, but I noticed that few of the ram socket buttons are not locked.

Other Thoughts: Going to update my review and raise the rate depends on the mother board's performance after installation

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome board!

Pros: Tons of connectivity! Ports up the wazoo. Easy driver install with ASRock software.

Cons: Only two 8X PCIe slots, the second of which drops to 2X speeds if any PCIe cards are added to the 1X slots.

Other Thoughts: I love this board. The only issue that caused me a problem is that all of the SATA ports all go through the Intel controller, which if set to RAID mode, can prevent the Samsung Magician software from detecting supported drives, and I assume other similar utilities and drivers. I got around it by using an add-in PCIe SATA controller.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Motherboard For A Budget Gamer

Pros: You really can't ask for much more than this motherboard offers. There's really only one step up in terms of onboard audio options, and personally I've had better experiences with Realtek drivers vs Creative. I'm happy with the Pure Sound 2.

I also prefer the Intel LAN chipset to the Killer option. Killer's whole brand image is too gimmicky for me, and there's a lot of info out there showing that their chipset isn't really much more effective than a tweaked stock one. The intel chipset is very comparable, and probably has lower licensing fees.

The USB mouse port is an interesting feature. I like the idea of prioritizing that port over others to reduce lag, but I'm hesitant to believe it makes that significant a difference. I'd rather have it than not, though.

The rest of the motherboard is fairly standard, but very good quality and pretty stylish. The expectation is an i3-i7 that has little to no expectation of being overclocked, and a single high end video card or two low end cards for graphics. The potential doesn't sound overly exciting, but honestly, that's what I run. I'm very happy with it, and this is a well priced, good looking board.

The BIOS takes a little getting used to, but it's fairly easy to navigate and is really very easy to use. I've used other major brand UEFI's that were far more difficult to navigate.

Cons: 2015 needs to be the year of the death of shoddy I/O plates.

WHY? WHY IS THIS STILL HAPPENING?

Okay, maybe some $50 basic motherboards that are bare-bones can still have them, but this?

This is budget gamer territory. This is not that area.

You spend all this time and money making 95% of the motherboard look awesome, and you RUIN it with the back plate. Shame on you, literally every manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: It's also worth noting that for about $20-25 more, you can upgrade to a version that not only has a few more perks (i.e. sexy I/O plate), but also upgrades the chipset to z97. Honestly, the upgrade is so worth it that it almost negates the existence of this model.

That being said, if you want to build a decent gaming quality PC, but have no intention of tweaking it, this is the motherboard for you. I would use this for non tech savvy family members who want good quality with minimal fuss, especially if they're aiming to game.
