My 4th Asrock motherboard

Pros: My favorite motherboard brand, and this one did not disappoint. (My 4th Asrock MB) It has every feature you could ask for and worked perfectly the first time I booted it with an i9, 9900k installed. Asrock provides as good or better quality motherboards at significantly less cost than their competitors.

Cons: Why is a 4 pin power connector needed? Though the board works fine without it, I thought I'd better hook it up even though my 1,000 watt PS has no 4 pin connector, and I had to send away for one. If Asrock continues to require a 4 pin adopter, they should include an adopter with the motherboard.

One other thing: Because of my large hands I had to get my wife to help me hook the front panel connectors, which was a horror show since everything is black, and there are so many MB connectors so close together. Gigabyte provides a solution to this with a color coded adapter that allows you to hook up the front panel connectors outside the case, then simply place it over the connector pins on the MB. (Please take notice Asrock.)

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Robert,

Thank you for purchase and review.
The 8 pins (4+4) 12 v CPU power is recommended to install. But 4 pins 12v CPU power is optional.
Its additional power to the CPU for OC, not certainly required.
If you have any technical or warranty inquiry in the future, please contact us at https://event.asrock.com/tsd.asp
We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

5/ 5
good, stable board

Pros: -Feature rich. Many connector options and possibilities with this.
-Receiving support updates often, seems very stable with its latest BIOS
-It looks good

Cons: -No motherboard screws. I had to rely on my old motherboard's screws to install this. So far as I remember, this is the first time I've received a motherboard that didn't come with mounting hardware.
-It wasn't a perfectly stable motherboard on its release day but BIOS updates have made it rock-solid.

Other Thoughts: ASRock has been pumping out BIOS updates for this thing that keep improving it. I had it from it's earliest BIOS version (1.2 I believe) through it's latest. I encountered some problems in the older BIOS versions which included occasional system freezes, but since the version number reached 1.5 and beyond I have not encountered any issues while using this board. I can confidently recommend it in its current state.

Great board, looks awesome.

Pros: - Works (This is always a big plus with mobos as they are hit or miss)
- Good thermal and system performance
- Easy/frequent bios updates
- Looks cool

Cons: - One of the RGB lights unfortunately stopped changing colors. It's stuck on a reddish color. Not a huge deal though.

Other Thoughts: This is a great board and I am happy I went with this one. I had never tried ASRock products but always heard good things about the taichi models. To my knowledge there really isn't much difference between the ultimate and the regular taichi aside from a few non-essential features so you may be able to save yourself some cash there.

Thermal performance is great, have not had any issues with my 9900k (Stock, no oc) or 32gb ddr4 (with xmp enabled @ 3000mhz).

My system is a little bit loud due to the default fan settings of the board. There seems to be 4 levels in the bios of how you can set your system fan speeds and mine is on the 2nd. Even still they seem like they are running almost at full speed. Maybe its bugged? Not sure, but I don't mind as my case does a good job of keeping the sound in.

All in all, great board and I would not hesitate to buy it again.

Did all I want

Pros: Did fine out of the box with the 9900k. I don't really over clock, etc. I just want something that works

Cons: nothing so far. Ask me in 6 months time. If it's still running fine and cool, then this has no cons from me

Other Thoughts: I have not tried overclocking and probably won't. I see lots of overclock potential here, so if you like doing this, the Mobo seems to do that.

Lots of Potential

Pros: There's a lot of ports. and expansion slots. I'll write a better review as the year goes by. This is more computer than I can every hope to need. I'm hoping to us Fedora Linux on this one. I'll let you know.

Cons: It was shipped with a few lose parts. But there were extra screws to tighten things down.

Other Thoughts: I'll let you know how it goes as the year goes by. Right now it has lots of potential. I am really happy with how many expansion slots it has. And I can put the latest processor in it and lots of ram. Hoping it does well with Fedora.

Hampered By The One Key Feature I Need The Most

Pros: Layout is good
Features are fine
LEDs are low-key
Quality seems good (everything but the 10Gb nic)

Cons: The one feature I need to work most is the 10Gb ethernet port. It doesn't hardly work at all.

Other Thoughts: I installed all the components and had zero issues. It boots quickly, it runs my games, and without the only con, I would rate this five stars in a heartbeat. After installing all my apps I then randomly decided to try one other test before stuffing the computer into its final home in the basement; I decided to do a file transfer over the Aquantia 10Gb port, more to just make sure I hadn't forgotten to install that driver. It should be noted that all of my initial setup and testing was connecting the 10Gb port to my 1Gb network.

Within seconds of starting the transfer test while connected to my 10Gb home network, the copy stopped and I received a message that said the network share couldn't be found. Somewhat confused I got up off the couch and looked at the back of the PC where I expected to see the network lights blinking away. They were both off. I pulled the cable out, plugged it back in, nothing. Frustrated, I rebooted the PC. The lights came back on.

After booting back up I opened computer management and found three very unfortunate errors in this order:
"Aquantia AQtion 10Gbit Network Adapter: Hardware temperature is high" with event ID 20 and source aqnic
"Aquantia AQtion 10Gbit Network Adapter: Network link is lost" with event ID 14 and the source aqnic.
"Aquantia AQtion Network Adapter has overheated. Please reboot to re-establish connection." <-paraphrasing. I didn't think to capture the message exactly before totally disassembling to make sure there wasn't something about the install I had done incorrectly.

I quickly tried to repeat the errors by copying a large amount of data across the 10Gb network. I started two file transfers, achieving a network throughput of ~940MB/sec and almost instantly the network cut out and I experienced the same error again.

All that said, I'm trying to work with ASRock to at least identify what could be going on. The process of communicating with them has been slow/painful so far. I really want to use THIS board, but I'm not going to be able to if it keeps crashing and overheating on the simplest of network transfers.

NOTE: I purchased my board somewhere else but as a frequent NewEgger, I thought I'd post my thoughts here for anyone else who might find the situation useful. It could also be that I got a bad board. Time will hopefully tell. If I get this resolved I will update my rating accordingly, because it is so close to being a 5-star board to me.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear David,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
We do the test on Z390 Taichi Ultimate , The Aquantia 10G LAN works well with drivers installed.
Checked the event viewer, and there is no error states that the NCI has overheated.
In addition, there is a heatsink on Aquantia 10G LAN to improve the cooling.
However, the Aquantia 10G LAN can work properly without rebooting the system.

If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://event.asrock.com/tsd.asp
