Pros:

Cheap feeling

Other Thoughts:

I built this computer in the First week of September of 2012. It worked amazingly well, and fast. And it was my first computer build. My Specs:
Phenom II 965
7770
Corsair 430watt PSU
8GB RipjawsX Ram
Aftermarket Heatsink... etc.

But anyways. This board worked well until November of 2012. I've noticed unstable voltages in my CPU. When at stock, it is set to autovoltage at 1.475v. This is a problem because the stock voltage of the Phenom II is 1.375-1.4v. When changing it lower to 1.375, the computer fails to boot into Windows. So I just kept it at 1.475v. After buying a custom heatsink to be able to overclock, I realized that I couldn't because the voltages were terrible.
Moving on, the board itself is very flimsy, and I heard some cracks while installing my ram. Very very terrifying.
Lastly, the board just died on me last week One week AFTER my 1 year warranty. It seems like the board was made to commit suicide after the warranty is over. Sadly, I can't send it in for repair because warranty is over, and it isn't worth it. I'd rather just buy a new motherboard from a much more reliable brand such as Asus, MSI, or even Gigabyte, because they have warranties that last 2-3 years.
Overall, get this board if you need it for a QUICK replacement, don't think that this will last a very long time. You don't have the freedom of doing many things as this restricts your power. No overclocking of CPU/GPU, terrible customer service, flimsy construction, etc.
Instead of paying 55 dollars on this, think about spending about 10-15 dollars more on a much more decent board, and one that has MORE THAN ONE YEAR WARRANTY.
Thanks for your time :)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

Sorry to hear that the mainboard has malfunctioned after 1 year which’s due to nature of electronic product, it can happen.
However, default BIOS setting is recommended to avoid system stability issues.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard to check if its resolved.
Turn the power off, unplug the power, clear the CMOS.
Test with single memory module, switching another memory if its problem still persists.
If you have any technical issues or warranty questions please contact our Tech Support at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.

Thank you
