5 out of 5 eggs Very Nice with 1 small issue 11/12/2009

This review is from: ASRock P55 Extreme LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Quality Board, Easy to understand Bios with multiple saves. OC with Turbo is an easy 3.8 GHZ on Air. Solid feel to the board.

Cons:

No user support forum like EVGA-I miss this for OC advise and settings that others have used. I installed W7 from a clean install and I could not get the on board nic to work. No matter what I did. I removed in device manager and then re installed. Nothing. Trust me I have a pretty high level of tech experience and the only solution was to install Vista64 and then load the NIC drivers and then do the upgrade to W7. This was a PITA since I already had W7 installed. Once I fixed that issues everything else was smooth. Just beware.

Other Thoughts:

Having come from a series of EVGA MB's I took a chance and so far I have not been disappointed. The AsRock is solid and OC my I5 to 3.8 on air was very easy. Just beware of the issue with the NIC if you are going to do a clean install of W7
