This review is from: ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: On paper the board was pretty much what I needed for a great price point. Worked out of the box, easy to install and gave absolutely normal performance for the first couple of days.
Cons: ...then out of nowhere, while on the computer I lose my signal inputs for both screens, forced to restart. Upon restarting I received no signal via my PCIe slot, and was forced to default to the onboard input. After changing PCIe slots from the PCIe 3.0 x16 to the PCIe 2.0 x16 I still got no input, and worse the system was not even seeing my video card. Also tried changing PCIe speed from Auto to Gen1 in BIOS...nothing. I even tried another card in both slots...didn't detect that either. After the fact I've read up and it seems other users have also reported issues with the PCIe 3.0 slot, but I seem to have it even worse as NEITHER of my PCIe options are functional.
Other Thoughts: So now it seems I'll have to refund this board or try my luck with another. Sadly, there aren't that many options around the same pricepoint and form factor that AREN'T ASRock. My next best bet would be in the $100-$150 price range. Seems others have received functioning boards, so I may just try my luck once. Regardless, potential buyers beware, you may end up with the same issues.READ FULL REVIEW
