5 out of 5 eggsAlmost everything

Pros: Can hold a slew of varying system performance, powerful to low-power. Everything is a tight fit, but its a 6" board with some bells and whistles. Sound is good, bios uefi is great, fast boot + ssd make windows load faster than an atm can grab your card.

Cons: Given I'm holding a 5 star rating I had an issue with my 1230v3 swap from my i3 4150. I attempted to force the full 3.7 turbo boost on all core with and without throttling and it tops just under 3.5 even with both multipliers set to 37. May be a board limitation for the processor with a H97 mobo, not sure

5 out of 5 eggsSimple MITX Mobo

Pros: This mobo is very simple. Two slots for RAM, one for GPU and a mini slot for the wifi card (included). My build went very smoothly with no issues.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: The mini card can be a PITA. You need a precision screw driver set that has the 00/000 cross tips in it. I was lucky that being a mechanic for many years I had a set in my tool box. I would advise that you get yourself a set and save yourself from the headache that most endure when it comes to the wifi card.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome, tiny, great documentation, Wifi solid

Pros: All the ports work, good fan power placements

Cons: A hair pricey
Be nice if it came with a On-Button while you're building out your rig

Other Thoughts: Sata ports get hard to access once the WIFI and GPU are installed. This is small, so this is to be expected.

1 out of 5 eggsDead on arrival

Pros: Forced me to buy ASUS replacement

Cons: Dead on arrival. No onboard speaker connection available, so when computer would not do anything except cycle on/off, it was difficult to diagnose without the ability to hear startup beeps. Also not happy to have to pay shipping to return a defective item. Makes me rethink using this vendor in the future.

Other Thoughts: Customers should not have to pay return shipping for defective items. This eliminated any advantage over shopping locally. This was, however, the first time I've had any issues with products from Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat mobo

Pros: great motherboard!!

Cons: as always with asrock... not enough fan connectors. do these cost a lot of money??? I don't get it. The question we all ask is: do I want to pay the extra money and get an asus board and have more fan connectors, or get asrock and have less... hook us up asrock.

Other Thoughts: OK. just my pet peeve... they say they are for gamers by gamers... if this is true, why would it escape them to add to their bios an option to shut the pc down if the sys-fan goes below 200rpm? lots of gamers use water cooling and don't want to fry our systems. makes me wonder if they are truly gamers or not... just sayin.

5 out of 5 eggsSmart board

Pros: Lets start with the biggest pro: the price. This little board does it all for much less than the other options from Gigabyte or MSI.
The onboard WIFI is working great, and drivers off the disc worked from the get go.
The UEFI Bios is enjoyable to use.
There's something satisfying about using every part of the motherboard. The only unused slot I have is for a USB2.0 header because I'm on a 3.0 front header.
It even looks good compared to the bland black from GB or MSI, although most if it gets covered up when in used.

Cons: 1 more fan header would have been nice, but it is possible to run 2 fans from 1 header with some splitting. Small cases may only have 1 fan anyways.
See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: The reviewer below me, oddly, of the same name, mentioned the Wifi connectors not securing well to the backplate.
Grab 2 wrenches and tighten down the nuts, and they wont go anywhere. This seems to be the primary complaint from reviews, that the Wifi card has to be installed and that the backplate is flimsy. I don't see this as a con, it's one way to reduce the price. Once you've installed these pieces, you don't need to touch them again. The antennae only need to be snug, they aren't going anywhere.
You spend about 10 more minutes installing this motherboard because of the extra steps, but save about $30.
All in all, great do everything board. This completed my guest gaming PC that I'll occasionally use to hook up to a TV as a steambox. Plenty of USB ports for controllers.

G3258 (Had this OC'd to 4.2 ghz on another board, will replicate)
8GB HyperX DDR3 1600 Ram
MSI GTX 660
90GB Corsair SSD w/ 1TB Seagate HDD
CX430 PSU

3 out of 5 eggsI prefer the GIGABYTE GA-H97N-WIFI

Pros: Decent layout of connectors; well-featured UEFI; has been stable in my experience.

Cons: Flimsy back panel plate; wifi card, wires, and mount all need to be manually installed; uses Atheros and Realtek WiFi and bluetooth instead of Intel components.

The WiFi coax connectors do not secure well to the back panel plate. The plate is too thin, so the nuts that are supposed to hold the connectors in place cannot screw-on far enough. Then, when you go to mount the antennas, the connectors just spin.

Other Thoughts: I own both this and the Gigabyte GA-H97N-WIFI. I much prefer the Gigabyte board. It uses Intel components for WiFi and bluetooth, comes with the WiFi mini-PCIe card pre-installed and well-mounted, and has less flimsy back panel plate.

This board ultimately works fine, it's just that there are better options out there.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: This motherboard has just about everything you could want, and in the tiny MiniITX format. ASRock manages to pack in plenty of USB 3.0 ports, five SATA3 ports, 5.1 audio w/TOSLink optical, and even a Mini PCIe slot (intended to be used with the included Wifi/Bluetooth module).

Cons: UEFI-only - not likely to be a problem for Windows 8 or Linux, but it definitely isn't a Hackintosh-friendly motherboard. It took a lot of effort to get Mac OS X running on this board, which is what I bought it for.

Other Thoughts: If ASRock had given this board a hybrid legacy BIOS/UEFI like other motherboard manufacturers do, it would be near perfect -- especially given its low price compared to similar boards from Gigabyte and Asus.

1 out of 5 eggsnot working

Pros: None since I can get the board to boot

Cons: NO PRODUCT SUPPORT AFTER PURCHASE

Other Thoughts: I had problems getting this board to work. Fan stops after 1 second and will not boot. Asrock did not respond to email request for advise. Newegg could not help. ONLY option is to return board.
