This review is from: ASRock H77M LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Was easy to setup, seems very full featured for tweaking if that is your thing. The XFast USB seems to actually make a difference. The XFast Lan im not so sure. Had a little reservation about going with a micro board... concerns unwarranted... its my first micro board and so far I see no cons as compared to a full size ATX board.
XFast Ram utility nowhere to be found. The whole reason I bought this board was for the XFast Ram utility. I used it for an XP build with 8gb of Ram, but XP only sees 4gb. The XFast Ram is supposed to allow windows to use all 8gb. I cant comment on whether it works or not. ASRock claims that its in the eXtreme Tuning Utility but it's not in my case. I'm using the latest version which is 0.1.185, i've uninstalled/reinstalled, been through the FAQs on the website, googled it etc....i've tried to come up with an answer before posting anything negative...but cant even find anyone talking about the issue. I've emailed ASRock support... they wont answer.... if I had to do it again...and I will... it wont be an ASrock board, not what it claims to be and poor customer service.
If ASrock would bother to help me out I would be happy, but as the XFast Ram is the major reason I bought this board Im dissappointed. I know there are other utilities to do the same thing...but that is beside the point.
