ASRock Z170 Pro4S LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Booted first try. Recognized memory with correct speed and timings. Also recognized all other peripherals.

One of the people that reviewed this mb said it does not work with Windows 7. He was incorrect. If you follow the instructions on the AsRock site you will learn how to do this. It is not AsRocks fault that some people are having problems. When Intel made this generation of cpus they left off instruction sets for usb 2.0(not sure if this is the correct way to say this). Anyway, this means that since Windows 7 does not have 3.0 usb drivers you have to create a usb version of windows 7 adding the 3.0 driver, which you can get on AsRocks website. The instructions on how to do this are VERY clear on the motherboards page at AsRock.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Paired with GSkill 8gb ddr4 2400 memory(will be getting 8 more next month), an i5 6600k and my trusty old MSI r9 290x gaming 4g. All bought here. Getting 20 fps more in Battlefield 4, and no more lag issues in Fallout 4. Both games on highest settings

It was a move from my FX 8350, of which I always will have fond memories.

Pros: And other stuff too. Gained 20 fps in Battlefield 4 over my old FX 8350, an that was overclocked to 4.6ghz. I have not overclocked this. Also no more lag in very un-optimized Fallout 4 in the city when you go high. I have not unlocked the framerate in that game. It stays at or close to 60 fps all the time now. These games are on the highest setting. Paired with my R9 290x

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I know there is no check mark next to my name but it was bought here for me by my landlord. nice guy eh?

I paired it with the AsRock Z170pro4s and 8gb 2400 ddr4. Also bought here. Fired right up.
