ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Performance LGA 1155 Intel P67 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: legacy connectors for obsolete floppy drives

Cons: does not support ivy bridge out of the box (55 error code). tried a g860 sandy bridge, got a 45 error code; it too was too new for the bios. customer service agreed to send me a new bios chip with updated bios to fix the problem. got the new chip yesterday; 23 days later; marked as ver 2.20. still got a 55 error code with the ivy bridge; swapped to the g860 sandy bridge and still got a 55 error code with an immediate power down of the motherboard (something new). decided to end my two month journey of frustration with this board, and ended its functionality forever. small satisfaction for me; no regrets, however.

Other Thoughts: in support of customer service taking 23 days to get an updated (?) bios chip to me; you have to consider the time they had off for the holidays. as a side note, there are cheaper ways to transfer data from your old floppy disks than building a dedicated computer; it just sounded like a good idea on a late night, or something.

ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Performance LGA 1155 Intel P67 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: has legacy floppy and ide connections. asrock website lists ivy bridge processors as compatible with motherboard.

Cons: cant use the motherboard. got a 55 error code; swapped out every other component with same result and RMA'd the obviously defective motherboard. replacement has same problem, asrock tech support finally responded that i need to update the bios to use an ivy bridge cpu. they also said customer service would contact me.

Other Thoughts: customer service has not contacted me, tried to contact tech support again and asked how to upgrade a bios when post fails; what cpu i needed to post so i can upgrade the bios; or how long it normally takes to hear from customer service, and haven't heard back from them either.

ASUS M4A79T Deluxe AM3 DDR3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Just Do It 08/13/2009

This review is from: ASUS M4A79T Deluxe AM3 DDR3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Has everything I need to update my system. Bios update took under ten minutes; total time.

Cons: Had a problem running a 32 bit operating system with the AMD 955 cpu; all 64 bit OS's seem to run fine.

Other Thoughts: Before you install this MB; go to the Asus website with the computer you used to order this part, go to the support section, pick this motherboard and download the latest bios; total time 2 minutes. Unzip the file you downloaded and burn the file to a CD; total time under 2 minutes. Install this MB, enter BIOS setup when you power up, go to tools and run EZFlash. With the CD you burned in a CD (or DVD) drive, updating the BIOS takes about a minute. It is that easy. Whithout the BIOS update, the MB recognized my AMD 955BE as an AMD 945, but it booted and ran.
