5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for the buck

Pros: Very affordable as always like other ASRock products, feature rich, auto overclock BIOS setting that works very well. Good driver package.

Cons: nothing so far

Other Thoughts: The auto overclock BIOS is pure genius and worked out well. save me the time and risk, memory and CPU clock/voltage ratio toned out smartly and works out amazingly. love everything so far. above all that, it's the most affordable gaming update option I chose for my brother. Impressed

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Motherboard.

Pros: This motherboard has everything I was looking for. Plenty of Sata Ports. Plenty of USB 3.0 Ports. I had gotten used to Creative Labs Soundblaster. this board has one of their latest sound processors built in. It sounds as good as my $175.00 Soundblaster card in my previous computer. It was just Plug N Play. Has plenty of expansion slots. With all of it's features I only need a slot for my video card.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Had some reservations about buying a Non-MSI board. This was the only one that had the Creative Labs sound chip built-in.

5 out of 5 eggsTrue Fatal1ty Gamer's Board

Pros: 1. Dual Lan Ports with Intel and Killer E2200- when managed by Killer Networks your games will increase bandwidth in amazing speeds and improve over all ping. Dual Lan Ports is a MUST and I repeat a MUST in a Gamer's PC. I use the other port for VMware, backup and sync.
2.Creative Sound Core 3D Chip- The best sound core chip on the market. Crystal Clear Sound with a full 7.1 feature.
3. M.2 socket for Generation 2 SSDs-Acquire 10gbs speeds
4. Intel software Goodies!! Intel Rapid Storage, Intel Smart Connect, Intel Rapid Storage and more
5. Sata Express Connectors Ready- A must !!
6. Secure Boot for Windows 8.1 Pro- This type of security will be hard for malaware to take control of your system.
7. Fatal1ty Mouse Port: Awesome
8. Intel Thunderbolt 2 Ready for a 5 pin connector add in card.
9. Ability to Over Clock like a pro

Cons: I would have liked a WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 integrated on this board from my smart phone. Where are the SATA Express SSDs? I know Asus promised an SSD called Hyper Express but where is it? Also in Asrock the compatible Thunderbolt cards are the MSI Thunderbolt Plus. But where is it? It is hard to find these items.
I like to show off my computer system build to all my friends and I would have liked the name FATAL1TY on the UEFI Main Setup Utility including the boot. I know this product is from Asrock but it is just not any product, this is FATALI1TY!! WOOOT!!! Also, I am FATAL1TY !!

Other Thoughts: This Motherboard has all the "Bells and Whistles" provided for a True Fatal1ty Gamer like me. I love that Johnathan Wendel asks for the best hardware there is out there for that a gamer wishes to have. I love the Fire Engine Red color for the aluminum alloy heat sinks. Also I would like for John to make a Fatal1ty Logo with LED just like Asus has it's Republic of Gamers Logo on it's Motherboards.

4 out of 5 eggsJust Fine

Pros: It has plenty of room for expansion. I like it because it has three slots for PCI 3.0 and while they are a bit tight together you wont have any problems with overlapping other (PCI 3.0) spaces as long as your using dual slot or smaller cards.

Cons: Im not completely sure why but the built in audio is not great. A. to get good quality sound you have to use the case headphone jack. B. The 7.1 sound does not work. (Using Tiamat 7.1 headset) C. The sound you do get (from built in ports) is garbled to the point where any voice you hear could be coming from the next room.

Other Thoughts: I bought this Board to expandable and budget. This is great for both. not only do i have room for two r9 290 GPU's but i also have room for a sound card and still an extra Pci and Pci 3.0 card. No this card wont be the absolute top of the line MB that you can buy but for less then $200 i would say its well worth it.

1 out of 5 eggsZ97 Lemon Board

Pros: Great looking board with nice gaming features with reasonable price . . . only if it works . . .

Cons: I own Z77 and Z87 Fatal1ty boards. Z77 was great board, so I purchased Z87. It lasted only 6 months, and it started to act funny - post failure, no shut down, BSOD, etc. I decided to throw away. This Z97 board was even worse . . . BSOD in every 5 minutes during driver setup with various error codes, including "unknown hard error" . . . RMA

Other Thoughts: One of the worst kind of experiences in my 15 years of PC builds . . . I'll never purchase ASRock - sorry, no more for this kinds of headaches!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the issue, Please set the UEFI BIOS default.
Test with single memory module, switching another memory if problem still persist.
Install fresh Windows if Windows is from previous hardware configuration.
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 eggsGreat Board!

Pros: Put this board in my new pc build. My previous board was also an ASRock, and it performed flawlessly, so I decided to go with this one even though it was new and un-tried. Installation was a snap. I couldn't be more pleased with the new pc.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this board.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

Pros: Alot of expandability for upcoming tech like M2 and Thunderbolt2. Plenty of USB 3.0 support. So far the onboard Audio has impressed but I haven't pushed it past headphones. This was my first full build and I must say the manual had everything I needed to figure it out.

Cons: E-SATA and rear SATA account for 4 SATA ports and the M2 takes one of those pair if used. Im no pro but I didn't like that. If you use a decent air cooler you will lose the PCIE #1 which was fine because I won't SLI more then two GPU's in this MB

Other Thoughts: Wasn't impressed with the shipping. Board was on the bottom of a plain Newegg box with air bags above it and shipped UPS. Soon as I opened it I thought "Great gonna build it all and have to tear it down to RMA cause a MB was shipped like everything else" so far so great though!
