ASRock FM2A88M Extreme4+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Running with a10 6800k, 8 gb DDR3 2400 @2400, has been doing great so far. This system is acting as my steambox right now and it handles any games I throw at it! Although the most graphically intensive games that I play on it are unreal engine games, I haven't touched any settings (whatever is default seems to run/look great).

Cons: None that I can tell

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome basic board 12/28/2011

This review is from: ASRock H61M-GS LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Cheap
No slot adjacent/beneath pcie-x16 slot
Advanced bios

Cons: Only two DIMM slots
No legacy slots (PCI/ATA), only a con if you have legacy hardware (I'm using a SATA/ATA adapter for my optical drive)

Other Thoughts: Has been rock solid stable for a week. Saved like $50 by not getting an H67, just missing USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0 GB/s, which would both be useless to me. Is even smaller than my older mATX 775 board. Have not tried overclocking, but I bet it would handle it fine later on when I need to.

Foxconn G31MXP-K I7 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap! I got it when it was discounted. POST-ed just fine but windows 7 64-bit wouldn't let me boot after the switch (Fedora 13 64-bit booted fine), so I had to reformat. Oh well.

My last mobo (VIA chipset) had only PCIe x4 on the x16 slot and wouldn't let me go past 2.2 ghz on my 2.13 Ghz E6400. It's now running stable at the max FSB the board will allow, 332, so about 2.6 GHz, didn't even have to touch vcore. Going from x4 to x16 was like a video card upgrade, my games all run smoother on higher settings even before the CPU oc.

Cons: Won't let me unlock FSB:RAM ratio, so I'm forced to OC my ram as well: DDRII 800 running at about 1 GHz. Thankfully it's handling it just fine.

I'm sad to see that I STILL can't touch the true potential of my E6400. I thought that maybe a BIOS update would let me go past 332 on the FSB, but the drivers and downloads for this motherboard on the foxconn site was down last time I checked.

Also, so cheap that they won't even include a pcie x1 slot even though the tracers/solder points are present on the board and the chipset seems ready for it, but I knew this before purchase (I wonder if I can buy one...).

Other Thoughts: Good basic board for the money.
