So Far So Good!

Pros: Runs very Stable! It does what it is supposed to do! No Drama!

Cons: None So Far operating wise.
I would like more SATA's it has 5 but I could use 6 or 8.
An actual USB 3.0 Header on the MOBO for front USB 3.0 ports ( I had to add a 3.0 card)
Additional USB 3.0 Ports at the back MOBO Mounted besides the 2 that are there.
These things will be a requirement whenever I upgrade MOBO.
These things are more of a Wish List than Con's though.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend it (if it fits your needs) but you can't find it.
I keep waiting for it to die so I can upgrade but it just keeps running.
I installed it into a Phanteks Enthoo Pro-M Case (full glass side) that I Love and Highly Recommend!
SSD Mounts in the front with 4 HDD shelves above it.
phanteks.com/Enthoo-Pro-M.html
Corsair HX 850 PSU
I just upgraded it's SSD Drive from a 120GB Samsung 840 EVO to a Samsung 500GB 860 EVO
Loaded Windows 10 64bit OS onto SSD.
HDD's in case are: One 4TB, Two 2TB and One 1TB (for Backup and Storage of Software Programs)
For Graphics I have a ATI Radeon HD 5770 card.
Air cooled 2 Fans up-front / 2 Fans overhead and 1 Fan at back.
An Additional PCie 3.0 card with Header connector at back of card to route to 2 USB 3.0's at front of case.
Two 2GB DDR3 1600 RAM cards in White Slots.
Most times the computer is left on 24/7 (sometimes I shut it off but not a lot)
I do not game or over-clock it.
It's uses are Business, Internet, HTPC.
I'm thinking about increasing it's RAM to 8GB but not sure that it would do anything better than it already is...
The proverbial...If it ain't broke don't fix it!
That's my story..

2,160+ days, still going strong

Pros: +solid build, wish it was still available
24/7 operation, never a fault
only downtime came from my own stupidity

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: wish they still built this mobo. ASRock rocked it on this one. Been through two CPUs, multiple hard drives, still a workhorse after six years. Will cry when it finally dies.

Died within 4 years

Pros: Never had an issue with it until it died

Didn't take parts with it.

Cons: Died within 4 years

Other Thoughts: Good board while it lasted, no idea why it died, just tried to boot up one morning and the monitor wouldn't display. Replaced the GPU and PSU. Figured out it was the mobo

update

Pros: works

Cons: see my other review

Other Thoughts: to any of those who come here 4 help... an update...i have gskill 1600 ram..4 sticks in my board 2gb each..and that is prolly the problem...the mobo manual isnt as clear as it should be..it states if you have ddr 3 1800/1600 ram modules t0 install them on the white a2 and b2 slots....and so we builders sometimes miss things like that and assume we can throw the same memory into all the slots if the mobo states it accepts that memory when we buy it. ..i will have 2 see if this was specified in the specifications of this page...and so i will have 2 buy 2 sticks of 4gb ram to install in the 2 white slots replacing the 8gb in the 4 slots..for hopefull stability...or i could just buy a new mobo for it. this should have been labled an 8gb mobo for 1800/1600 ram modules instead of 16gb so i hope this update helps some latecomer. i am going to remove my other 2 modules now and see if i can have stability...cause i can get 8gb now 4x for 30 bucks...if not stable will go 4 new mobo.

Asrock 870 Extreme 3

Pros: Compatible with a lot of good equipment.

Cons: Have had problems with this mobo since the beginning. Every few months or so, I would have a problem with it causing me to replace a part until ultimately I replaced everything except the motherboard. After replacing each part it would work for a while and then another error would come up saying it was something else. My RAM never did work right with this motherboard and finally after having it for over a year, I'm finally getting five beeps in the bios which is clearly a motherboard issue. It is also my understanding that it has been recalled because of so many complaints. I would definitely not buy this motherboard.

What everyone is saying is true

Pros: This was a very affordable and well working piece of machinery.

Cons: I've had it for about 2 years now and for the past 8 months it's been making noises as if you can hear the electricity flowing loudly. I've had 2 graphics cards of different manufacturers fail on it and then work again later. When I built this computer I was glad to find such a good deal, but now I'm going to have to rebuild it with a new motherboard.

Other Thoughts: This was the first computer I've ever built so there could have been causes on my end for some of the functionality errors.
