Pros: Well first off i would like to say this board exceeded my expectations for a sub 100$ mother board in every aspect.
-looks nice for a cheap board
-Asrock has served me well with quality bios updates on my other boards this one has been just as good (some of the best bios i have overclocked with are asrock)
-I have g4400 @ 4.78ghz core and 4.78ghz uncore under 60c full load @ 1.4v (custom water loop) stock TIM.
-Great audio for a 100$ board. People who are complaining about poor audio just have no idea how to use a computer and configure there sound.
-Runs cool with out any need for added fans (minimal case flow) even when overclocked.
Cons: The only "con" is that its a cheap board and may lack some vreg for a i7 chip trying to get 5ghz. added cooling might help but honestly if you are going for best overclock on a i7 just get a beefier board. (I would see no issue getting 4.5 out of a i7 on this board)
Thats about it for con's other than maybe the lack of sli support but thats really not a fault of the board.
Worst thing about this board is all the negative reviews... I cant help but wonder how many of these poor reviews are just people who have no
experience building pc's.
Other Thoughts: Asrock has givin me the best support out of any mobo mfg. provided me with the best bios updates performance and compatibility with add in cards like LSI & adaptec raid cards. That other mfg could not and did not care if there board functions or not. and even tho asrock is owned by asus they are nothing like them and imho i would not ever buy asus anything from my experiences asus is not who you want try and get even a simple RMA done.
Anyways point is dont let some negative reviews here under sell this mother board it really is a good product and should be noted as such.
Pros: Look cool, Has a ton of promise over the RAT7 I own.
Cons: Zero quality. First two I got had major scroll wheel drag, Third one drag was tolerable and now only a few months of casual use less than 4 hrs/day. The scroll wheel will now scroll up at random on its own or even when your scrolling down... Combine with the left and right click buttons going out for everyone (as did my rat7) in less than a year. Its just not worth owning.
Other Thoughts: Hard to believe i still have my old ps/2 mouse i used to play StarCraft Broodwar on and it still works fine.... used that mouse every day all day for 3 years all the clicks still work..... Simply put madcats is selling a mouse that is about 15$ in actual value and charging you over 100$ Shame on you madcats good luck to you tho i'm sure your company will continue to grow and prosper lol.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: cant remember the last time i got a DOA motherboard, let alone a 600$ motherboard Oh that's right never haha! jokes on me!
Other Thoughts: Package was received in perfect condition tested on multiple power supplies. tested out of case on table with only CPU installed. Hit power button only to have it blink on and imminently power off then back on and so on.
This indicate board is DOA from electro static discharge or was defective from mfg. I would think Asrock would test a $600 board before shipping. With that said maybe they should start using a antistatic bag like 99% of all the other motherboards come in....(idk just thought it was odd that this one has no antistatic bag.)
I am no expert but have built enough computers in the last 14 years to know how to handle a mother board.
