This review is from: ASRock 980DE3/U3S3 AM3+ AMD RX881/760G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
It works out of the box. Relatively inexpensive. 8 internal Sata ports. Read that Nortbridge runs hot but it really isnt bad at all.
No real cons considering price and purpose. A few minor quirks listed below. Layout could be better.
Bought for media and HTPC. Replaced Asus with onboard GPU that was acting up. Small board compared to the ASUS. HDD's connected to SATA III show as ATA in device manager despite BIOS settings and driver install. No big deal, just strange and it tweaks me for whatever reason. On SATA II ports they show as SATA. 1600 MHZ memory ran at 1600 on ASUS board with no overclock and same CPU. Same sticks run 1333 on this board, no overclock. Memory listed on QVL. Another no big deal but it tweaks me. Knocking one egg off for the quirks, layout could be better and because nothings perfect.
