ASRock FM2A88M-HD+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) 8 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy install, USB 3.0, good RAM capacity.

Cons: The first one was DOA, the 2nd one had a few problems with the installation.

Other Thoughts: This is an update to my previous rating. The original MB was DOA. I didn't start my build until 31 days after I ordered it. I had to RMA (jump through a lot of hoops) to the manufacturer. When I installed the 2nd board, it initially appeared to be DOA as well, no post, no video.

I checked with a more technically competent friend about the installation. He suggested that instead of just placing the APU in the slot and locking it down, I should place it in the slot, PUSH IT DOWN FIRMLY, and then latch it into place. IT WORKED!!

I installed an A10 Trinity processor and 16 GB of pc 1600 ram. It is working well now. Not a speed demon by any stretch of the imagination (I'm not a gamer), but it appears to be more than adequate for any business or home computing tasks. If it remains stable, I'll update to the latest A10 processor.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6570 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready  Video Card (100324L)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good price and decent specs.

Cons: Doesn't work

Other Thoughts: I'm going to have to start putting my systems together quicker. I bought this in Aug 2013. I quite often buy parts well in advance of when I need them

I was completing a build this week and remembered that I had purchased this card. Installed in an ASRock FFM2A88M D4 (Bolton) MB along with 16GB of pc 1600 ram and an A10-Trinity processor. Nothing, zilch, nada. Couldn't get any video at all. It's too late to return to NewEgg. I'l see if I have any luck with the manufacturer.

ASRock FM2A88M-HD+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) 8 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good size, adequate number of ports, easy install, good price for a new "Bolton" motherboard.

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: I purchased this from New Egg approximately 2 months ago. Unfortunately, I didn't get around to assembling the computer until 31 days after purchase.

CPU fan, case, fan, DVD and HD all started. It would not post or show any video. I contacted As Rock support. After disconnecting and re-installing everything, it was determined that the MB was simply dead. They provided an RMA after a few days and I returned the MB.

Yesterday, I received the replacement and re-installed everything. Same problem, fans and drives all appeared to be working, but I could not get any video or get the MB to post. I'm going to get a local experienced tech to check everything out (again) before I quit. If he verifies my findings, I will probably give up and order another brand. The shipping costs to send them back will soon be approaching the cost of the original unit.
