Pros: It looks good.
Cons: I'm sad and irritated to say I've had nothing but problems from the board since I received it over a year ago. This board is so far-gone I cannot get it to post and get into BiOs so I can flash the BiOs to the latest version in attempt to fix it. Just a black screen and three or four restarts then it seems to just give up and sit there with the power led on and no video. I recently purchased a kit from Newegg that had an Asus motherboard to replace this failure and it has been absolutely great, at HALF the price of this one to boot!
Other Thoughts: I was a first time and now last time customer of ASRock and I am extremely disappointed. This board has been out performed in every single category, especially reliability, by a board that was not even half the price. I would be ok with the less than stellar POST times, etc. if the thing at least worked right, but after a little over a year it won't even POST. I recommend anyone looking for a motherboard in any form factor to go look at Asus boards, I could not be happier with mine.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2SB 500W ATX12V v2.2 Power Supply
Pros: First off I got the PSU in a kit with an Asus board and an AMD A10-5800K, and I was very paranoid about it being DOA or ruining anything in the build during first POST. However I must have gotten a good one because it fired up just fine and has been running like a clock for the month its been on. I didn't even get that so-called "new electronic" smell that some were saying was excessively strong in this PSU.
Cons: None, It works, I'm happy.
Other Thoughts: It was in a kit with a Rosewill REDbone case, so I've got a bit of a mess as far as LED lighting goes (Red fans in case, blue in PSU). But I blame the person who put the kit together on Newegg for that oversight, not Rosewill's doing.READ FULL REVIEW
