Pros: This board worked great for me for a very- VERY long time. I was very pleased with it's performance overall. I created a gaming PC with this motherboard as its basis, and for the almost year and a half that I've owned this board it has worked flawlessly.
However, after about a year I ran into a problem. My motherboard began giving me beep codes, and I couldn't tell what the issue was. However, after a bit of experimenting I finally found the issue. I simply did a quick and easy BIOS flash (which is made even easier with ASROCK's easy bios update feature), and since then (almost 3 months) I have not had another beep code at all.
Cons: - A bid cramped for wire space in some places.
- Some bios features are simply unnecessary.
Other Thoughts: Also, to the person who complained about not being able to connect to the HDMI port, it is simply because of the pins of the motherboard faceplate. You have to bend them all back, or else your HDMI cables wont fit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This GPU has surprised me a lot. It is able to play almost any game at medium to high settings with stock GPU settings(non overclocked) with the exception of some of the newest next gen titles. It has not failed on me so far, and I have been very pleased at the performance. Heat has not been a problem for me even with only one fan. The frame of this card is also very sturdy, as it is made entirely of aluminum.
Cons: The main concern I have with this product is that it seems to be very hit and miss with consumers. Some will get a flawless product like myself, while others will receive a nonfunctional product.
Other Thoughts: Turn on AMD overdrive for this card for the best performance, and also turn the fan speed up to about 60% if you experience heat issues, as 60% seems to be the fastest the fan can spin before producing noticeable noise.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card works great for my budget gaming needs. It has a surprisingly sturdy frame which is entirely made of metal. It has never gotten hot while playing games. ( I have only played tf2, minecraft, and fallout new Vegas so far)
Cons: Drivers were a bit frustrating to install in my experience.READ FULL REVIEW
