5 out of 5 eggsGood enough for a 2nd one.

Pros: This is a good board. Combine this with GSkill ddr3 1600mhz with a CL of 7 and a i3-4160 which has 4 data highways (4 threads) at 3.6ghz AND add a good SSD and you will have almost instantaneous results both ON and OFF the internet. I have used many of the Asrock Z97 boards for new builds. Haven't had a bad one yet!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: All of the prices are more than reasonable and Windows 7 (being user friendly and user intuitive) is an easy load. I have rolled back 42 pc's to date to Win 7 from Win 8 and 10. I will not be buying the Skylake and the Gaby Lake cpu's and boards because you have to use Win 10. The Skylake will load with Win 7 but there will be restrictions according to MS. The Gaby Lake cpu's and boards WILL NOT work with Win 7.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid board

Pros: This board is solid. the overclocking genie is great for beginners. lots of fan headers. posted on first boot

Cons: One case fan header is right in the middle of the board. and makes cable management difficult. also if your looking for sli or xfire find a diffrent board. The automatic overclocker adds a bit too much vcore mines at 1.413 when i do it auto.

Other Thoughts: Great board for the money and a solid overclocker.

5 out of 5 eggsmy first motherboard

Pros: This was my first board I have ever bought for the first computer I have ever made. Here's what I have to say about it:

on sale for 115$ plus a 30$ rebate! You expect garbage for that price but what you get here is a solid board

Packaged quite well and comes with an excellent instruction booklet

Looks absolutely stunning (don't tell anyone how much you paid for it)

UEFI is very organized, looks great and user friendly. Lots of options and overclocked my i5 4690k to 4.5ghz in just one click

Cons: Motherboard shield is pretty bad as it blocks off several USB ports even though I know it's installed correctly (reflects the price)

No SLI! If this had SLI compatibility, I wouldn't even consider upgrading soon! It really would be the perfect budget board.

A couple resistors by the CPU socket came very very close to preventing me from using my all in one cooler (H110)

Other Thoughts: Setup:
I5 4690k
Corsair h110
This board
Evga 970 reference
Seasonic gold 760
Hyperx 8gb 1833
Western digital blue 1TB
NZXT s340

3 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard The Price

Pros: Supports The Pentium Anniversary Edition

Lets You Overclock The Pentium Up To 4.2 Gigahertz
With The Stock Cooler

Cons: PCI Slot Is Very Sensitive And Broke...

No SLI Support

You Need To Install Intel LAN Drivers Its Kinda Annoying Also Wants You To Install Random Software That Comes With The Disk Drivers..

Other Thoughts: Meh For A Budget Build Its Ok

5 out of 5 eggsWorking as advertised and cheap

Pros: - Cheap
- Z97
- Good looking
- Lowered cost from removed features we didn't need
- Handles our 2400 memory without issue
- 6x Sata connectors

Bought 5 of them, all of them working without issues. Will probably buy again when we will need more computers.

Cons: - No SLI/Only 1 PCI x16 (we didn't need that anyway)
- Some fan connector a bit too close to other components
- Bridges performance are average at best, but no bottleneck for gaming/3D modeling
- 3 sound ports instead of the usual 6 for higher end board.

Other Thoughts: When will motherboard drop the useless PS2 port? How about a motherboard without a HDMI/DVI port? They could shave a few bucks off those, and for gaming we never use those.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value Z97 board

Pros: ASRock tech support was responsive. This is a good board for a single GPU configuration.

Cons: The only "issue" I encountered was to correctly install the RAM in the right slots. The manual implies a 1,3 or 2,4 configuration which didn't work for me (I had to install in a 1,2 config).

Other Thoughts: I purchased this board with the intent to pair it with a G3258 but ultimately ended up with a i5-4690. This is my first ASRock motherboard product and it compares favorably to the other motherboard products I've used.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: No issues with anything I tried, great UEFI, amazing companion to the G3258.

Cons: Dead Ethernet Port on Arrival too much of a hassle to ship back for that but loses a star for that imo.
Gonna upgrade to i5 4690k and R9 390 and see how it goes.

Other Thoughts: Best g3258 board imo, expensive but worth it and kinda upgradeable

2 out of 5 eggsIncompatible board with amazing customer service

Pros: Amazing customer service

Cons: CPU placement too far left for my case( CM Scout 2 Advanced), only 2 Chassis fan slots, abnormal 8-pin power connector placement( above RAM), hard to insert ram slots

Other Thoughts: What made the customer so great was:
1. Pick up the phone extremely quickly
2. Was able to get me a refund on a nonrefundable item(CPU), though this was do to miscommunication in the first place
3. Got my request done extremely quickly

3 out of 5 eggsdefaults didn't work, had to OC

Pros: 6 SATA slots, simple OC options.

Cons: Would not load Windows or Windows Setup out of the box if All Cores was activated in BIOS. C3/C6 had to be disabled to enable Dual-core.

Other Thoughts: Used with: Intel G3258, TeamDark 4x2GB ram, Crucial BX100 SSD

Ok, I had Newegg delete my original 1 star rating so I could write this update.

In summary, I paired this mobo with an Intel G3258 Haswell processor (dual core). Sticking with just the manufacturer's defaults (dual core enabled), I'd BSOD as soon as Windows setup started. Every viable alternative was explored (CMOS flashing, updating BIOS, using different RAM/HDD/video card, SATA cables, etc.) Same result, BSODs galore.

To ensure the G3258 wasn't bad, I ran Prime95 off the universal boot cd at bootup (so no Windows necessary) for 12 hrs. MemTest was run for a combined 20 hours on both sticks.

Everything passed, but allowing it to boot normally still resulted in BSODs (bad_pool_header or irq_not_less_than etc.) at the Windows loading point.

However, I learned if I forced single core mode in BIOS, everything would work fine. Installed Windows 7, ran Prime95 fine, etc. But reenabling dual-core would again BSOD upon Windows boot.

Now convinced I had to return this, I wrote that earlier 1 star review even as I continued to test different BIOS settings before giving up. And lo and behold, disabling C-states C3 and C6 allowed dual core to boot!!

I normally don't OC something until I know it works in its default state, but since C-states are sometimes disabled anyway for OCing, I guess no harm's done. However, I've read reviews by people with this exact hardware setup that had things work with the default settings... so there is still definitely something wrong underneath.

So... TLDR, default BIOS settings refused to boot a dual-core processor unless single-core was forced. Disabling C3/C6 states allowed it to run in its intended dual-core mode.

Note this was a Win 7 install, not Win 10 (I'm aware of that Win 10 dual core thing with G3258s).
