Pros: Works fine with Linux
High performance for the price
Cons: Included cooler is small
Other Thoughts: Good bang for the buck. Paired it with a ASRock FM2A88M Extreme4+ from Newegg for a Linux server. Works fine without issues, very fast. Running several VMs on it and performance is great. I don't need the graphics side of the chip but maybe I'll try some games out some time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small size
Plenty of ports
Works fine with Ubuntu 14.04
Cons: Have to buy all the cables for headers on the mobo, nothing included
DIMM slots are very close to CPU, couldn't fit larger sized cooling block with taller DIMMs
Only one ethernet port
Other Thoughts: Bought this motherboard to rebuild a Linux server in my basement. Paired it up with AMD A10-7850K CPU and HyperX Beast 32GB KHX24C11T3K4/32X also purchased from Newegg. Tried to use a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (purchased elsewhere).
CPU and RAM fit in and work fine, but because the DIMMs are so tall and close to the CPU the Cooler wouldn't fit in, had to go with the stock cooler that came with the CPU. Will look for another solution soon.
Although the RAM is rated at 2400 system would not post at that speed, boots fine at 2133.
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit server loads up just fine (just be aware ethernet is named p19p1 by default and not eth0). Very snappy little system. Running KVM VMs, a lamp stack and some web applications with a 25tb ZFS array. I have yet to max out the CPU.
Did a bios update just to have the latest. No issues with upgrading.
Only had the mobo a few days but happy with my purchase. Would recommend it to others, makes an inexpensive but effective home server/NAS system.
Pros: RAM worked fine out of box
Looks good (?)
Cons: A little tall, blocked use of large CPU cooler, check your measurements before ordering.
Other Thoughts: Lots of packaging (plastic trays wrapped in foam in a larger cardboard box inside another box with packaging), little bit of overkill.
These DIMMS are about 2" tall, make sure you have room for them.
Working in my ASRock FM2A88M Extreme4+ mobo at 2133.
