5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great, love all the features. Bluetooth and wifi is flawless. If the motherboard ever fails ill definitely be keeping the combo card.

Cons: reads my ram at highest 1400, though my ram is rated at 1600, tries to default to 1333. not sure how to get it to read right.
Also, can't seem to get usb3.0 working right. seems to have only gotten 10mb's faster than usb2.0

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I purchased this motherboard for my first build. Although I was initially apprehensive, as I have heard that ASRock is usually a 50/50 sort of thing, where either the motherboard is amazing or not so amazing, I'm really satisfied with my purchase.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are built into the board, it supports 4th and 5th generation processors, supports up to 16GB of RAM, a ton of USB ports, and a ton of SATA ports, to boot. I built my computer with art, (very light) gaming, and every day needs wrapped around a compact design in mind, and the board has satisfied all of those so far!

Cons: Although the board is awesome, it's not perfect.

The biggest flaw (for me) is the fact that it only has one chassis fan connector. This is disappointing as my favorite chassis all had two or more fans built into the case. I was aware of that when I bought it, however, and bought a fan splitter because of that.

Installing the Wi-Fi module wasn't a lot of fun, either. The screws are very small and ASRock did not include the kind of screwdriver required to install it. Fortunately enough, my father likes watches, and let me borrow his Phillips 0.

The antennae are also kind of loose if you don't screw them in really hard. For those who are considering this purchase, make sure you screw them in really well, otherwise they'll wobble!

Other Thoughts: The lack of additional fan connectors, and the exclusion of a Phillips 0 screwdriver in addition to potentially wobbly antennae are certainly annoyances, but they weren't so detrimental to my experience that I wouldn't recommend this board to someone whose looking for something with a bit of flexibility at a good price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product, Great Service

Pros: Wifi
Sata 3
Front Panel USB 3.0
PCI-E 3.0

Cons: Only 1 fan header

Other Thoughts: This motherboard has served me well for over half a year. At one point I damaged the onboard sound card. The RMA process was quick and painless. A week later, I'm back at full. Would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsASRock Solid!

Pros: Board supports 4th and 5th generation Intel core processors. It includes the dual band wireless card. The interface for the UEFI is very user friendly and it allows for updates of both firmware and board drivers without any assistance from CD based Linux.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: For the price this board, I think, has no comparison with others similarly priced. Absolutely easy upgrade of components including the UEFI. I tend to upgrade the BIOS/UEFI just to make sure boards are fully up to date and this one surprised me as I could do it without having to install the operating system first. Great board for Win8.1 builds.

3 out of 5 eggsDooes *NOT* fit into Streacom FC8 Alpha case

Pros: Board layout had everything that I wanted, including a network chipset which works well with Debian / Ubuntu.

Cons: Please don't misread, this board does technically fit into a Streacom FC8 Alpha case.

However, the placement for the CPU does *NOT* with the Streacom FC8 Alpha case's heatsink pipes. This particular case was the whole point of this particular build. My goof!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great low priced Mini-ITX board
Good layout
Software works great

Cons: Wi-fi is tricky to install, assembly required with 2 tiny screws.
IO shield is very thin
Washers (not included) were required to tightly secure the antenna nuts to the IO shield
Only 2 fan headers

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great board with a very low price. Although the board only comes with 2 fan headers, it was all I needed. I installed this board into the Thermaltake Core V1 Extreme Mini ITX Cube Chassis with an i5 4460, air cooled CPU, no video card and a small SSD. It runs very cool and no extra fans are needed for this setup. The software that comes with it updated the drivers, BIOS with one click of the button and is working great so far!

3 out of 5 eggsStay away from bios 1.51

Pros: Inexpensive, includes wifi adapter

Cons: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR blue screen while under load with the 1.51 bios and stock settings. When I roll back to 1.50 I don't have this issue. I'm guessing the "power savings" they implemented in the newest revision cuts back on CPU voltage and causes unstable overclock type instability.

Also in the bios, the fan control seems extensive, but doesn't work well with PWM fans for some odd reason. 3-pin fans can be easily controlled, but my 4-pin pwm intel stock fan range from 1100-2000 on silent mode, 1300-2100 on standard, and custom doesn't seem to do anything.

Finally, the wi-fi system is poorly implemented. First you mount the card to the board with a small metal bracket and screws that require a glasses sized Phillips head. Then you clip on the standard tiny antenna mounting points (not Asrock's fault but still tough to do). Lastly you have to pop two holes for the antenna out of the i/o shield and have them just kind of hang out there. Since the outer antenna male connector and the backing that's in the case doesn't have a solid fit you can't rotate the antenna 90 degrees and have it hold its place like most wireless antenna.

Other Thoughts: Cheap board that works. Just don't expect great quality.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent budget board

Pros: . Everything needed
. Good connectivity
. Good WiFi
. Robust to build with

Cons: . Four pin chassis fan header would be nice.
. Getting to the front-panel header is fiddly, but that's mini-ITX too.

Other Thoughts: I teach in Middle School and my students use this board as the basis of their home, productivity, and gaming systems when they build there computers in my Computer Construction Crewe.

Mini-ITX challenges my student's (11 - 14 year olds) construction skills and teaches the advantages of good cable management. Used with G3258, i5 4570 and 4460, Intel iGPU, GTX750ti, and GTX970 in a variety of cases.

Every one has been a first-time boot so far.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid board

Pros: Great overclocking options on a non-z board.
AC wireless is great.
Bluetooth 4.0
Price was great for options available.
Onboard RAID 0 is working great for me.

Cons: Wifi antenna installation was a bit difficult, mostly because I didn't do it until last and I was working in a tiny itx case.
It wasn't free?
"Silent" fan profile isn't very silent, but that can be fixed by adding a custom fan profile.

Other Thoughts: Running with a G3258 as a HTPC. Have two 5400 RPM laptop drives installed in it in RAID 0 for data storage and an SSD as main drive. It's all rather nice.
Unfortunately, bluetooth 4.0 does not work with windows 7, and windows 8 charges an arm and a leg to get media center. So my free-after-rebate bluetooth 4.0 mouse is waiting until I decide to upgrade to windows 10 and a different PVR software.

4 out of 5 eggs2nd time's a....

Pros: A lot of features packed into one.
This is, however, after returning for a replacement; I made the first review on the 18th of this month.

Cons: DVI does not work. HDMI, VGA both work perfectly using a G3258 Pentium.Tried multiple monitors to see if it was that monitor, tried multiple PCs to see if it was this motherboards connector.
It was this motherboards connector.

Other Thoughts: I could leave a lower score but whatever, still a fair price with 2/3rds of the (graphical) functionality.

Oh, and also, Linux users, the LAN chipset + WIFI chip aren't supported out of the box using a current kernel(but thats fine, since there is nothing saying that this motherboard supports unix(windows only)) I was just surprised that the LAN port didnt work either. Perhaps in a further update the driver will be included in Linux.
