5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Used this MB for music production PC built 6 months ago. One of the smoothest builds I ever made.Well thought out BIOS. Runs flawlessly pretty much maxed out in terms of I/O.

Cons: Expected 'con' for most Micros - last RAM stick protrudes into CPU fan cage so best get low profile and read dimensions of any heatsink and plan accordingly.

They advertise Thunderbolt ready. It requires a proprietary PCIe card, and good luck finding that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo, But Be Aware

Pros: I love this Micro ATX motherboard. It backs a lot of features into a small board. Lots of SATA 6's and USB 3.0 ports. Matched up well with my i5-4430 processor. Also has a connection for USB 3.0 case ports - oh yeah!

Cons: Be aware - there is no IDE port on the motherboard and there is only one PS2 mouse/keyboard port on the back. I know you can find this information elsewhere, but better I mention it than it surprise you.

Other Thoughts: With a rebate, this board became extremely competitive in pricing for me. I already had my heart set on Intel for this build. As my second great ASRock motherboard, I am becoming a loyal customer.

2 out of 5 eggsBoard died after 6 months, Asrock support nonexistent

Pros: Board worked flawlessly for six months.
Good features for the money.

Cons: Suddenly refused to POST one morning.
Insufficient information in manual or website for troubleshooting.
Nonresponsive/unreachable customer service.

Other Thoughts: I used this board in a build for a small business, and everything worked great. Unfortunately I got a call one morning, about six months after the build was done, that the computer wouldn't turn on. Troublshooting via the BIOS beeps, it appears there is a memory error, but I cannot be sure because neither the Asrock site nor manual list what the codes mean. I am using four sticks of Mushkin RAM, and I get the same POST codes regardless of which sticks are installed. I don't think all four sticks would fail simultaneously.
I contacted Asrock technical support via the form on their site, which has been linked in other reviews here, and have not received a response for two weeks. This is simply unacceptable for any self-respecting company. They don't even have a phone number I can call for more immediate service.
While the board was a good product for the price, for the six months it lasted, I will never purchase an Asrock product again, regardless of price, features, or how well reviewed they are. Further, based on my customer service experience, I would say Asrock is a completely unacceptable brand for business use.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsBuild and crash motherboard

Pros: Very small package, very quiet with a small intel CPU, planned for living room use. Install of CPU/fan, install of electrical, cabling, memory, etc went very quickly. Machine booted and loaded win 10 on an SSD. Graphics looked good. This was second build of the day. Sweet, looking good. BAM after a restart the video display craps out. Display fail out with what appears to be a bad video card display. Reboot the machine to see if it clears, no. Machine is now short cycling with no beeps, no video.

Cons: Failed after 30 minutes into build. Outside of the graphic display crash. There was no indication of trouble. Looks like a motherboard failure. Power checks out. Will reinstall an old AMD CPU and motherboard with old SSD into the hardware case.. Wasted at least 2 hours on this build and crash.

Other Thoughts: Did not see a rate of failures due to the motherboard when I looked at reviews. Board is on a RMA soon as possible.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy For Budget Build!

Pros: Good price, looks great, works like a charm.

Cons: Could use another 4 pin fan connector but hey, it's a $100 board that works well! No problems here.

Other Thoughts: This board is solid and looks good. I used it in a budget i3 build for light work in the fall of 2014 but life happens and I couldn't build my gaming machine soon enough. So, I exchanged the 450 Corsair PS with a 750 EVGA G2 bought on sale earlier for the future gamer, pulled out the 750i video card and i3 processor, put in a 970 card, a 4790K processor, and an AIO 240 mm cooler and voilà - a gaming machine that plays The Witcher 3 smoothly on ultra settings. (Everything bought on Newegg sales!) I might try some overclocking in the future but frankly, the unit often runs above 4.2Hz which is fast enough for my current needs.

While I have your undivided attention, I want to briefly share my recently gained experience for those contemplating whether to buy a non-OC 4790 or K version processor for gaming and have cooling concerns. There was a 3 day gap where I was waiting for the water cooler to arrive and the stock heatsink/fan was allowing temps climb into the high 70C range while intense gaming. The temps dropped over 10 C when I turned off the turbo and there was no noticeable difference playing Witcher 3 at almost non-K 4790 Hz.. The point being, the non-OC 4790 (or 4690) would probably work fine for the most demanding gaming with an inexpensive aftermarket heatsink/fan or even just changing the thermal paste on the stock fan if your case has good airflow. Don't let the numerous overclocking posts listing cpu stress test temperatures where all the processor cores are maxed out for some lengthily time scare you into buying expensive cooling. So, consider the non-K 4780 (or even 4690) unless you just have to have the K processor for overclocking, and use the $$$$ saved towards an SSD and good video card

Back on track now...I highly recommend this ASRock board for everything capital conscious people might do with a computer these days. It may not allow for the fastest overclocking or have the features of a $200 board but I would rather save the cash and to put towards other critical components where it will pay more dividends. Stop stressing over unnoticeable excessive frame rates, and a few degrees of cooling - all which cause unnecessary expenses - and enjoy the gaming after the satisfaction of building a dependable computer yourself. (... and do yourself a favor and get a case with good airflow)

I found component listings on reviews helpful when I got back into building computers after an 11 year pause so here is my box:

Fractal Design NODE-804 Micro ATX Case
ASRock Z97 Pro 4 Micro ATX Motherboard
Intel Core i7-4790K processor
EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+ video card
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB DDR 2133 Memory
Enermax Liqmax II 240 cpu cooler
EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 power supply
SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SSD Western Digital Black WD1003FZEX 1TB Hard drive
Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB Hard drive
Windows 7 64 bit Home Edition
Yeah, it even has blue LED lights to view through the window.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good and looks good too

Pros: No problems encountered. Uneventful is good.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Installed Win7 with; i5- 4590, 8 GB Gskill ares mem, seasonic 430W, Intel 530 SSD. Set eufi to legacy and have 28C at idle. When I rip a CD in EAC the lame encoding per track is instantaneous.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: USB3, PCIE-3, stable, good apps included for configuring and tweaking

Cons: USB 2.0 header a bit too close to PCIE2 slot, soundblaster Zx card barely fit in the slot due to its cover shield, but worked.

Other Thoughts: Was a direct replacement for a Z77 MB and 2500K processor. Used same PSU, Case, etc. Had to take out my R9 270x card (requires 2x6-pin power) and boot from internal graphics to get OS set up. Upon repeated seating trying different options I could not get graphics from my vid card in the PCIE 3 slot, computer would briefly start and shut down. Upon trying an older HD7850 card that requires only 1 6-pin power and different power cables from PSU, the 7850 worked fine. PSU is a much older Thermaltake Blackwidow 850W, so it doesn't seem to be a matter of power, just the supply on the rail that new boards require. I think once I buy a new Haswell certified PSU I will be able to put my newer vid card back in. If it's just your PCIE3 slot that isn't working, check your PSU! MB was very finicky about power.
