Pros: Worked pretty well for 3 months, just some issues which I could work out...
Cons: The puny fan over the CPU wasn't enough to keep it cool. After I finished building my computer, it ran for about 10 minutes before it froze. After letting it cool down, and adding some fans to it, it cranked back up, yet threw a blue screen once the operating system was firing up, then immediately shut down. It has not come back on since. I power on my computer, and the fans, disc drive, keyboard and mouse all light up, however the hdd is trying to do something, and I am getting nothing but a black screen. My monitor does work; save your sarcastic replies for someone else.
And save your money too. Not a bad deal for $100, but could have definitely improved on the fan. Now I am stuck with a useless motherboard. :/
Other Thoughts: I bought this thing back in February or March, I don't remember, and tried everything out. All seemed well, but went through a bit of a headache updating all the drivers and installing Windows 7. After several weeks, all was well, and continued building my case. I put the project off for a month or so, however, have gotten back on it. Now that the case is finished, the mobo decides it doesn't want to act right. I hate the hassle of returning stuff, and waiting, and having to pay shipping. It seems to me companies would want to build a damm good product to begin with. All well. Now I have a $100 paper weight. And a $100 lesson learned to never buy from ASRock again. And never recommend them either.READ FULL REVIEW
