4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is a good, no-frills motherboard . It's inexpensive, an for a z97.

Cons: Don't buy this board if you like to run multiple graphics cards.

one word of caution: it's two chassis fan connector headers only support PWM fans, if you want to be able to control their speed and keep your computer quiet. There's no way to set the fan speed control using old fashioned voltage as far as I can tell, so I'm out $30 buying 4 new PWM enabled case fans.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect out of the box.

Pros: This motherboard is exactly what i wanted. It offers just enough to get me through what i need without adding a bunch of bells and whistles that i would never use just to jack up the price. Everything on the motherboard worked perfect out of the box, and unless you are an extremely heavy gamer, you won't need anything but this motherboard. The BIOS, while being nothing special, will have everything you need and works adequately.

Cons: The CPU fan headers can be hard to get to with a large cooler. Not a huge fan of the color, but for the price, who cares.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend this Asrock MB to anyone looking for a low price, high quality board.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome board!

Pros: No issues out of box! Installed, connected components, and it booted immediately! All HW installed was seen by BIOS and available when OS was installed. Older PSU with 4 pin 12v connector worked! Manual has instructions for PSUs with 4 pin 12V connectors! Used the supplied CD to get initial drivers updated then let windows updates take over from there!

Cons: None yet! Just did a first time install and everything works perfectly

Other Thoughts: Great board. Installed it with my 11 yr old son and he had a great time learning about computers! I highly recommend this MB based on my experience with initial installation. Everything connected was detected and initial OS installation and driver installation was flawless!

4 out of 5 eggsAsrock Z97 Anniversary, good

Pros: This is basically a quite good, inexpensive motherboard. Works well with Linux (PCLinuxOS and Debian) and the UEFI bios is good (and lets me mark a hard drive I have in an Orico mobile rack as hot swappable. The Orico has a power switch!). Adequate SATA and USB 3 connectors. I'm using a G3258 and moderate overclocking was automatic and uneventful, though I prefer to run stock speed usually. No SATA Express or M.2 (for my purposes this is an advantage).

Cons: This is a budget board and it shows, though most of the drawbacks are modest or to be expected in a budget board. But the documentation is very poor, even the pdf manual on the driver disc is visually cruddy; the mobo itself only has an hdmi connector for the Intel graphics; no eSATA; no debug or LED; the PCIex 3 connector's latch is the same color as the connector and easy to overlook for those, like me, who are inside a computer only infrequently; the I/O shield is the cheapest looking I have ever seen, it looks like it was stamped from compressed chewing gum wrappers. Etc.

Other Thoughts: All in all, this is a decent motherboard. It's just that there may be better boards in the same price range or close. "Better" judged on specs and/or reviews, this is my first experience with Intel hardware in a long, long time. One reason I went with this board is that I had an excellent experience with an Asrock AMD mobo a few years ago and that board is still running great. This one is a slight disappointment.
Also, I think it's high time for manufacturers to stop ignoring Linux, and for NewEgg to drop Flash. :-)

4 out of 5 eggsSolid motherboard

Pros: A sufficient number of SATA, USB 3.0 & 2.0 connections. Outstanding audio, which eliminates the need to buy an add on sound card. Connections clearly marked. Good performance for a basic system.

Cons: Instructions suck but passable. Basically diagrams with short explanation of the connections. However, if you have previous experience building a computer, you should be able to get by OK.

Other Thoughts: A word of note. Although the instructions show how to mount the CPU and memory, it does not mention that the motherboard should be mounted to the case BEFORE you attempt to mount them on the motherboard. However, this is only common sense.

2 out of 5 eggsWnt bad in about a month

Pros: Great features, Loved the 4 usb 3.0 ports, loved the bios.

Cons: i used it for a month no problems then i turned it off and it would not turn on again. Once the newegg warranty runs out Asrock's RMA service sucks.

Other Thoughts: I would still purchase it again because i loved the bios and the 4 usb 3.0 ports. But this time with the 1 year newegg replacement warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsWow. Consider me impressed.

Pros: - Ease of use
- Picked up windows OS 8.1 and booted right away with my SSD from my old system... Wow
- Great size
- Excellent fan options
- PRICE $70
- Plenty of Sata ports for this price
- Working smooth so far
- Nice aesthetic
- Great packaging and manual

Cons: - HD Audio connection for front IO is put in a very poor spot that leaves few options for proper cable routing often leaving your cord crossing the entire face of your computer or interfering with 1 pci slot if not routed properly

Other Thoughts: UEFI Bios works great. It boots properly and automatically recognized my SSD with Windows 8.1 installed without a hiccup. All USB slots, RAM Modules, Graphics Card etc were recognized and configured right away.

Needed to download newest drivers onto a Flash Drive on another computer because I don't have a disc drive and the board didn't recognize my ATT Uverse modem out of box. Not a big deal.

4 out of 5 eggsFun Motherboard for G3258 Overclocking

Pros: This is a fun little board for a budget build. I paired it with the G3258 and overclocked it right away with no issues. The sapphire black PCB looks good and the blue color scheme goes well with an Intel theme. Of course, being a budget motherboard it lacks the key features of Z97 motherboards like M.2 and SATA express, but for the price that's kind of expected.

Cons: The layout of the board could be a bit better, the CPU fan headers are smack in the middle of the board, which made it very difficult while building. I will need to pick up a fan extension cable as the cooling setup right now is not ideal. I had to kinda "make it work for now". The board is also fairly narrow for a standard ATX board which looks a bit odd sitting in the case. But these are minor complaints and overall ASRock did an admirable job with the board.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a low budget Z97 board for your G3258 Pentium Anniversary overclocking fun, then this is it. I popped it into a white NZXT S340 case and while the board looks a bit narrow inside the case, it fit right in without any problems and overall looks pretty good. The UEFI takes a little getting used to but has plenty of options to play around with.
