1 out of 5 eggsBroke at the worst time

Pros: It worked great up to a point

Cons: Went through my routine dusting that I do every month. Went I fired up the system to start up some work, the HDMI socket was not responding. Now I have to get another board rushed to me so I can get this rig to a LAN next weekend.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggs-mixed bag-

Pros: cheap, wifi on board, raid support, it works

Cons: cheap i/o
requires some additional work to o/c
some assembly required
2 fan headers, no m.2

Other Thoughts: Bought this for an htpc running a g3258, out of the box was a pain to make this board o/c, their newest BIOS(shipped with) does not offer an unlock multiplier option, downgraded BIOS to 1.4 did the trick, not as easy to use as Asus boards, poorly written manual(minimal information). Asus version of this board(form factor) is a much better value(build, features, quality and ease of use), even if you have to add your own wifi.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

Thank you for purchase and review.
The BIOS 1.80 is for Windows 10 and it will be limited multiplier function.
If it's not Windows 10 that may stay at BIOS 1.70

2 out of 5 eggsBe Aware of Bent Pins

Pros: Powerful small form factor

Cons: Lots of other reviewers have noticed bent pins. I didn't realize until my board failed to boot to BIOS.

Other Thoughts: Like I said in the Cons, make sure you check if you have bent CPU pins before installing or taking the UPC barcode out. Should be common sense but I started over-trusting manufactures and Newegg and just started installing the machine and sending my rebate in. Newegg won't refund/replace without the UPC barcode. Contacted the manufacturer explaining the problem and they gave a cookie-cutter response on how to troubleshoot the board, with a bullet in there that says to confirm the pins aren't bent. Awaiting their response to see what will come of it but I don't have any high-hopes.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Jack,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. ASRock mainboards are fully tested to assure the quality.
The CPU socket has been covered with protection CAP to avoid damage the pins.

2 out of 5 eggsCheapest in its category

Pros: Cheap
Mostly works
It does OC non-Z CPU's in Windows 10
Nice default OC profiles

Cons: Will not allow XMP memory profile over 1400 -> I bought 1600 memory :(
Will only spin the CPU fan down to 1200 RPM ... the board is unable to spin it slower or stop it
Will only spin the case fan down to 436 RPM
unintuitive OCing - It has all the features, just hard to figure out and not documented in manual
Oddities - The ethernet port just stopped working one day for example

Other Thoughts: To overclock in windows 10:
Install Windows 10 using the current BIOS revision 1.8
rename the windows/system32 file mcupdate_genuineIntel to something different (need to take ownership first)
Flash it to BIOS 1.7, afterward overclocking functions will be enabled

Verdict: Would not buy again

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Layla,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the XMP, please update the BIOS at UEFI/BIOS, Tools, Internet Flash (required internet connection).
Adjust the DRAM Frequency to 1600 tot est.
For the network issue, please clear the CMOS.
Load the BIOS setting default to try.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA and warranty doesn't cover the problem I had with this product.

Pros: None, it came DOA

Cons: Very difficult to set up Wi-Fi as the cable and screws can be really finicky.

Other Thoughts: My board came DOA and after talking to CS they denied me the warranty forcing me to pay for their RMA service. I opted out as the fees would have been almost as much as I paid for it during Black Friday. Very poor customer service and terrible quality on this mobo. I would recommend paying a little extra for a more reliable board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Micah,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
We do not charge any fees for mainboard under limited warranty unless they do not meet the RMA policy.

1 out of 5 eggsASRock H97M-ITX/ac LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: small itx build that works with my itx case. Great features and has 5 SATA

Cons: Where to begin. RMA because computer stop posting. Started with a 10 second delay start. Press power button and nothing for 10 second, weird but okay. Then a few days later I shut down the computer and it never starts up again. Went through all the usual checks, RAM, Power supply, CPU, power button, devices and isolated to the motherboard. Email tech support a few times and later RMA the motherboard. Got the replacement motherboard and one month later the same thing, stopped posting. A quick clear of the BIOS manage to post but after another shut down it stopped posting again. What is up with the quality control on this motherboard. I wonder how many time i'll have to RMA this motherboard model before I get a working one.
AVOID this model like the plague!

Other Thoughts: Running a Celeron G1820 with 16GB Ram. A massive upgrade from my Pentium E2200 4gb RAM. Did not install the WiFi card that it came with..

5 out of 5 eggsNothing to Complain about

Pros: Its a solid mini ATX motherboard. It has been working fine for the past month since I built my new rig. No complaints.

Cons: I think that if the motherboard came with a cheap small screw driver for the wifi/bluetooth module it would have been nice. But since it works fine without it and I wasn't looking for that capability in the first place then I don't feel the need to deduct an egg for that.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this board for those who are looking to build a mini ATX rig. I'd like to mention though that I didn't bother with the wifi/bluetooth setup. It required a really small screwdriver to install the module into the motherboard properly. It also meant I didn't have to deal with the installation of the antennae so I don't have any input on that regard.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat for six weeks

Pros: All the features you need at a great price. Installation was a breeze and so was driver updates.

Cons: Board died after about 6 weeks. Turned off power and never turned on again. I've tried clearing the BIOS and changing memory around. I also swapped power supplies and CPU works in a another system with no trouble. Definitely the motherboard. I'm seeing this same problem in other reviews.

Other Thoughts: ASRock is normally a good product, but they seem to have a big flaw in this board. Hopefully they provide a fix. This seems a waste to another wise fantastic little board.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother solid ASRock motherboard!

Pros: + Tiny form Factor
+ Well featured for size
+ Wireless AC and Bluetooth Module
+ 3 year warranty
+ Has optical out
+ Only $60 after rebate at time of purchase

Cons: - 5Ghz wifi range is poor
- wifi antenna fit loose

Other Thoughts: I have had great luck with ASRock as of late with several builds, so I decided to use them for my recent cheap gaming build for my daughter. Using a i3-4170 cpu, 16GB G.Skill Ares DDR3-1866, 480GB OCZ ARC 100 and a EVGA GTX950 SSC as additional components, I hooked it all up and installed Windows 10 and put the H97M-ITX/ac through it's paces.

First thing to note about the installation, the WiFi antenna's do not fit very well. I ended up installing a small spacer to get them to fit snug. The rest of the build went as normal, but it is worth mentioning that there are limited fan headers so be prepared if your case has lots of fans.

The ASRock UEFI bios is very easy to navigate. Since the i3-4170 is locked, I did not perform any overclocking and the G.Skill ARES was set to 1600Mhz speed. Setting were easy to find and I had no issues. Install of Windows 10 went as expected and quick 24 hour stress test using OCCT and then Memtest86 ran without error.

I am not fond of the SATA port locations, but due to the small footprint of the motherboard, they are pretty limited as to what can be done, so I cannot knock them really for it. Other than that, my only other complaint is with the wifi range, specifically for the 5Ghz band. One floor up and maybe 20ft away from the wireless router, speeds were actually pretty good, but up another floor and regardless of orientation, I was only able to get 2.4Ghz reception and that topped out at maybe 2MB/sec. 5Ghz could not hold a connection. Installing a Netgear A6200 WiFi adapter it was able to have a solid 5ghz connection and superior speeds at around 15-18MB/sec at the same location.

Complaints aside, for $60 after rebate for a ITX motherboard with this feature set is a absolute bargain. The motherboard is attractive, 100% stable in my experience thus far, has a solid 3 year warranty, uses solid caps and has built in WiFi. At the price I paid, I give it 5 star, but at MSRP I'd knock off one star because of poorly fitting antenna and limited WiFi range.
