This review is from: ASRock 970A-G/3.1 AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Had no problem installing and setting this board up with my old FX-6300 and DDR3 Ram. Was going to go back to Intel board but that meant upgrading everything, so went with this board for the M.2 support. Installed a Samsung PM961 on this board and had no problems installing Windows 10 and booting from it. Yes you can use NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 m.2 SSD's on this board, of course you don't get the full speed of the SSD with AMD yet, but 20Gb/s is much better than the SATA 6Gb/s.
The BIOS is very nice also and it worked with no problem with my wireless Logitech touch pad.
Cons: Was concerned about the placement of the M.2 slot being right under the double wide video card but so far no heat issues and no problem with it interfering the install of the video card. Just think it should be placed somewhere else than next to the main PCIe slot
Other Thoughts: Don't understand why AMD is taking forever supporting PCIe Gen3, I'm ready to upgrade my old AMD setup but there's no real upgrades for a long time now using AM3+ chips. I have supported AMD for many years but they need to keep up with Intel on the chipset side of things. This is a great interim board for now, but that's all it is, but for $55 it's worth it even if it's just for the M.2 support. My AMD video card is a bit dated too, so I'm ready for the next gen AMD setup which better come soon or it will be back to Intel.
Thanks to ASRock for making this board in the meantime :)
Pros: looks new, works well, nice keyboard
open memory slot for easy upgrade
Installed an SSD drive in this along with 4 more Gig of ram which I had from previous laptop which this replaced. Much better with these 2 upgrades.
Upgraded to Windows 10 easily enough after cloning the Hard drive to the SSD.
Cons: comes with windows 8.1
slow hard drive
