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.

5 out of 5 eggsA lot of features for the price

Pros: Price, wifi, cpu support.

Cons: Wifi mount

Other Thoughts: So far I am very pleased with this board, it had the most options at this price. The wifi seems very good, I get good connection and speed. Like others have said the mount on the IO shield isn't the best idea, at least they could have included washers so you could secure it fully.

I have a Pentium G3258 installed while waiting for the Broadwell release, I was able to overclock to 4.8 GHZ at 1.34v.

This supported the G3258 with the current bios.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks pretty much as expected

Pros: Priced nicely, it works and overclocks my G3258 Pentium with no trouble.

Cons: One system Fan header, PCIE wireless card and the antenna need to be all hooked up together plus inserted into a slot and held by a bracket which is a con imo. For some reason I cannot enable XMP profile on my 1 stick of G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600 ram, it just doesn't want to enable it no matter what I try even setting everything manually including the frequency.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Value

Pros: Fully Featured for what it is
Seems to be a quality board
Has O/Cing tools, easy to use UEFI (though if you are overclocking you should be on a Z97)
Cool windows-based UEFI access (custom fan tuning, overclocking, boot to UEFI and so on)
Over-LAN updates worked without issue
16 gb of TEAM Ram worked without issue
Latest Intel / Graphics recognized without issue
On-Board Wifi is great

Cons: Layout not optimal for my Sugo 05 case (why put the power connector near the HDD/intake fan side anyway?) Sata connector stacked near GPU
Not sure layout would be optimal in any case
Documentation pretty minimal, I still don't understand many of the features in the BIOs and probably never will
Upright wifi adapter scary - tough to install antenna leads and also a breakage risk
Tin-Foil flimsy backplate cover
Only 2 very long SATA connectors included (one straight, one right angle) C'mon!

Other Thoughts: Does everything it should so far, and provided it lasts, could be the best ITX value currently. But in hindsight, I probably would've picked a different one mainly for a slightly different layout (important to my build goals). Also, wish it had Realtek 1150 audio like the Z97s.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected!

Pros: Size: great form factor and easy to reach connections. The layout on the board makes sense and is easy to use.

Wifi works better than expected. Found my 2.4 and 5GHz wifi bands effortlessly (see Cons) and was very snappy on the 5 GHz band.

AsRock A-Tuning made getting all of the up to date drivers a snap. Downloaded the latest BIOS and did all of the hard work for you. Very nice bonus tool.

Board looks good. Despite being ITX, the board looks and feels good. I was really worried about using a budget ITX board, but after seeing it in action I am very happy with the purchase.

Works well with the following:
Pentium G3450 3.4GHz dual core CPU
Team Zeus 8GB RAM
WD 1TB HDD
EVGA GTX 750 TI
Powered by a Corsair CX 430W ATX PSU

Fit everything into a Cooler Master Elite 110 Mini ITX Tower Case

Cons: You have to use the supplied DVD to download Wifi drivers for the Wifi module, A-Tuning, and others that I would have liked to see already on the Motherboard. Not a huge con (not -1 egg worthy) but could be a hassle for folks without a DVD/CD drive in their build.

Must be in XMP mode to get true 1600MHz speed out of 1600MHz RAM. This has been mentioned by others and it is absolutely true. Could be an issue for BIOS newbies, so please read the manual and know how to change this setting in your BIOS.

Other Thoughts: I used this in a build for my In-laws who's Dell Inspiron finally bit the dust.

They're not power users, gamers, or programmers, so they didn't need an elite $1000 machine.

My mother in-law is an artist and does use graphic intensive programs, for those of you who may be gawking at the GTX 750 TI, I wanted her to have a 3 screen display capable mini system, cause she uses them all for her art.

They wanted to see what I could come up with on a sub $400 budget (wife and I sprung for the GTX 750TI) build and this mobo offered the most options at the best price. I've never used ASRock before so I was worried that I may get a dud-board, RMA, or have other problems with the board.

All of my fears were unfounded. This little motherboard is great, has great features for the price and will do well as light weight internet machine, HTPC, or other wireless small form factor computer.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mini MOBO

Pros: - Size. If you need some decent performance and don't want to really give up power, this is a great mobo. I have the Fractal Design Node 304 and it fits great with this case.

- Easy to install etc. The only thing I advise is make sure all of your other pieces are compatible size wise.

Cons: - USB3 - I don't know if this is actually the mobos fault but the usb3's in the front of my case don't recognize regular usb flash drives etc. It might be a software issue but I've installed every driver I can possibly find but it still isn't working.

3 out of 5 eggsdecent HTPC build, some flaws

Pros: There's a lot to like about this board. It's feature rich for its size. Having the AC wireless onboard in particular is nice.

Had no issues getting it up and running with the following:
Core i3-4150
Radeon R9 280
2x4 GB G-Skill DDR3 1600
240gb Crucial SSD
CM Elite 130 Case

Cons: I may be the only one with this issue, but something seems amiss with the audio drivers...

It's almost like the board is trying to enhance the dynamic range by cutting certain frequencies or anything below a certain volume threshold. What happens essentially is that anything below 'loud' or out of the frequency range of the human voice is muted/dampened by the sound card. I'll reinstall drivers to verify, but if this persists, it's a deal breaker.

As others have stated, the way in which the wireless antennas are affixed is awkward. using the I/O shield as the mount is flimsy, at best

Other Thoughts: I've used AS Rock in my last three builds. Provided I can figure out the audio issue, that trend will continue.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy set up, all drivers work properly.

I installed a Coolermaster hyper 212+ on this board and it cleared the ram (gskill ripjaws) and wireless card without any problem (will fit either horizontally or vertically).

The power connection, sata ports, and usb 3.0 header are nicely positioned on the front side of the board. Some boards use the top edge and you need to navigate around the cpu hsf.

Cons: The wireless antennas mount on the IO shield; this is a con because it's a nuisance if you ever need to unscrew the board and move it, the antennas must be unscrewed and the retaining nuts loosened or removed. Not troublesome enough to remove an egg, but it didn't hit me that this was a negative point until I had to remove the board and antenna connections in my small case to make a minor adjustment.

Other Thoughts: I purchased two of these boards and this is my second review. In my first build I used an intel stock hsf, which I haven't used in several years so I wasn't familiar with the noise level. In the second build I used a coolermaster 212+ with which I am familiar. The fan on this heatsink was running at about 1600 rpm which was much faster tahn normal or necessary. I checked the UEFI and noticed there were options for fan speed (custom, silent, standard, etc). The 'standard' setting runs the fans much faster than other boards and will be noticeably louder. Silent mode seems to be the way to go. I'm running my cm 212+ at ~900 rpm in silent mode when the cpu is idle and my temperatures range from about 23c to 30c across the cores (I'm using an i5-4440 in a rosewill legacy u2 case).
