This review is from: ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Looks nice, it's probably really nice and fast.
Cons: Does not work with FX model processors, with natural bios. Update to bios is needed.
Other Thoughts: I bought the motherboard hoping to use it with my FX-6300, but I was disappointed to later find out that in order for it to work properly, a bios update is required. Well I'm out of luck since I don't have a spare AM3 cpu just laying around. I did eventually get a replacement directly from Asrock hoping that is would already have the bios updated as they knew what my problem was. Nope. Motherboard still doesn't work and now I have to buy a new one. I am sure it is a great product, just not for the FX series processors.READ FULL REVIEW
