It's been good 11/19/2016 8:44:57 AM

Pros: - One of the last boards with a PATA connection.
- All other current connectors, including 8 SATA3, Firewire, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and eSATA.

Cons: None, after 4 years

Overall Review: Bought this originally for my daughter's PC build 4 years ago. It's still going strong.

Liked it so much, I bought another for myself a year after hers.

Very happy with this board 10/21/2016 7:08:11 AM

Pros: Had this board for 4 years never had a major issue
8 6Gb/s sata ports is a beautiful thing
An IDE slot for my optical drive (no need to waste a sata port)

Cons: The small fan for the heat sink next to the CPU socket is garbage...well really it's the screw mounts for the fan the screws don't stay in well. If you have a power supply that goes on the bottom of the case mount it with the fan down, you don't want one of those screws falling into it.

Overall Review: No on board video makes this a good option for a gaming pc

Pros: Has a lot to offer with numerous fan connectors, built in overclocking, intuitive UEFI, and lots of rear IO ports. The three PCIE slots with support for both Nvidia SLI and AMD Crossfire makes this motherboard so attractive.

Cons: None that I have found

Overall Review: After two years of owning the motherboard and putting through heavy use, it is still going strong.

Works great 3/2/2015 9:42:50 AM

Pros: Works just fine with all my components.
I really liked the BIOS simplicity

Cons: I don't understand the LED numbers/letters meaning on it, but it works fine and that's just user incompetence.

Overall Review: I'm not technically strong when it comes to MOBO's. I basically bought this one based off other reviews and ensuring it could run everything I wanted to attach to it for my new build.

I've never had any issues with it and I really like how simple the BIOS settings are to figure out when I first fired everything up. I had no issues setting it up to accommodate my RAM (1866).

My Build:
AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
HIS IceQ X² OC Radeon 6870 1GB
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 watt
ASRock 990FX Extreme4 AM3+
G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 1866
Samsung 840 Pro Series 2.5-Inch 256 GB SSD
Logitech G500 mouse
Corsair Vengeance 1500 gaming headphones
NZXT Phantom 410 case

10/2/2014 9:58:01 AM

Pros: The sole AMD 990FX/SB950 Socket AM3+ motherboard with its specific combination of legacy (PATA, Floppy, COM, PCI) connectivity and contemporary I/O (Firewire, eSATA, USB 3.0). Substantial heatsink cooling the MOSFETs, which appear to be of the four pin variety. Comes with optional fan, although I opted not to use it. Northbridge heatsink is secured with screws rather than pushpins. Plenty of SATA connectors and PCI express slots for future upgrades. A BIOS update is available as recently as June of 2014. Recognized an AMD FX-8320E with BIOS revision 2.00 out of the box, despite the lack of such information on ASRock's website. (Turbo Core has not been confirmed). Very handy USB 3.0 ports that can be used in either the front or rear of a computer case. My family liked this motherboard so much that we purchased one last year and had to hunt for one this year.

Cons: None, except this motherboard is now EOLed with no comparable successor. The 990FX Extreme3 and 990FX Extreme9 both lack its legacy connectivity options.

Overall Review: I love how ASRock still allowed some color on this motherboard (capacitors, DIMM slots, expansion slots) but wish that they would move away from the mono-black scheme that makes it hard to see what plug you're working with.

Cons: None yet.

Owned this mobo for a little over a year, already caput! 8/3/2014 11:21:29 AM

Pros: Owned this mobo for a little over a year with NO issues.

Cons: Really disappointed that it lasted such a short time for what I paid for it! Of course it's after a year, since the warranty was only good one year!

Overall Review: Just before it died on me I had a few days that it would intermittently boot up. If I let it sit a day or so before trying again it would eventually start up again. Then it would freeze up on me again, and when I rebooted it wouldn't load anything. Now it's dead after sitting for a week and no hopes of resurrecting it.

Components fall aparts so the company doesn't have to warranty it. 5/29/2014 12:07:42 AM

Pros: -Many different features.
-Huge bang for the buck.
-Appealing colors and designs.
-Looks like a competitive board.

Cons: Components will fall apart, literally, like the SATA data ports on the motherboard. Once this happens, the company will claim the part has been abused and is no longer under warranty.

Overall Review: Moved to ASUS a year ago.

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
To unplug the SATA cable, it must press and hold the lever (metal latches) to disengage lock SATA cables to avoid damage the ports and affect the limited warranty.
