Update for my previous review 09/29/2013
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme9 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Nice Board, with lots of bells and whistles
See below, but there are several
I have been reading around in many of the feedback comments about asrock boards. The intel sockets anyway. I find it funny that there are so many problems being reported about bent or damaged socket pins. Yet, Asrock is so quick to tell everyone about how the boards are checked before they are sold, and that there is no way that they could come that way from Asrock. However, if you read around the web and even on Newegg you will see people that get memory errors when they power up the board. This is usually being caused by damaged socket pins. I even saw one person who had problems with memory errors upon boot up, and then Asrock tells them to check the socket pins and sure enough, bent or damaged pins. Then the people are so surprised because Asrock blames them
To update my problems below. I kept telling Asrock that there were all kinds of problems with my board, and it went from bad to worse. It will not even post now. Just double zeros on dr. debug. It is dead and I am sure it came from the faulty socket in the board.
However, it is my fault. What a joke
Dear ASRock Customer
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
The reason to check mainboard CPU socket pins due to memory controller on the CPU is not fully contact with mainboard which might indicate memory error on Dr. Debug.
The CPU socket on the mainboard has been covered with protection CAP to avoid damage the pins during the shipping and should not be removed unless intend to install a CPU.
In addition, the CPU socket pins on the mainboard are fragile and need to be handling with careful to avoid physical damage and affect the warranty.
As always, we appreciate your purchase and constructive reviews are welcome.
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.
