This review is from: ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

-Price
-OC is easy
-Crossfire
-USB 3.0
-8120 capable

Cons:

-Buggy the last 6 months prior to it failing
-Only lasted a little over a year
-No USB 3.0 Header!

Other Thoughts:

This motherboard was great for the first year. Ran my fx-8120 at 4.5 perfectly and wasn't difficult to OC. It was a great price as well for what you get.
After a year, I had problems with boots and random shutdowns. Thought it was the power supply starting to fail but ended up being the motherboard.

When the motherboard was working correctly I would give it 5 stars! If it lasted another year I would be so much more happy. Since it failed after a year I give it 3 stars. Wish there was something I could do.
