ASRock ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+/AM3 AMD 990FX + AMD SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good board for the money.

Cons: BIOS interface can be buggy and not the most energy efficient overclocker. Also have had 3.0 front port usb consistancy and Sleep/Wakeup issues and it's not the connector as I have tried the board in multiple cases. Sometimes windows won't even detect the 3.0 ports upon a fresh boot up. I've tested using 4 different versions of drivers and the problem persists. Hoping the "changes USB function" note on the 1.60 BIOS addresses this. Keeping my fingers crossed and flash from 1.50 -> 1.60 tonight.

Other Thoughts: Overall pleased with this purchase as far as AMD boards go. However, I'm considering purchasing an M.2 SSD with NVME but can't tell if it will support some of the newer ones or boot from them etc.because the BIOS note and QVL lists on their site are very limited. The M.2 support list is always out of date. http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/Fatal1ty%20990FX%20Killer/?cat=Storage

Unless they stop selling this board and EoL it out, they need to keep testing and showing "partial/full support" test results for hardware compatibility. Something that ASUS is always on top of.

ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: After owning for 2 years, have had ongoing front panel USB issues. When I touch the front panel, skin or usb device, it shorts out and freezes the system, followed by a very unpleasant static-snow sound through speakers. Thought it could be grounding or case issue but it must be a motherboard manufacturing defect. Newegg was kind enough to send a different case to see if the problem persisted and it does.

Other Thoughts: Wish I would've been more proactive in determining the source of the issue, but haven't had the time and I don't use front usb that often but BOY WHEN I DO! Guess I have to buy a new mobo, that stinks.
