Great motherboard 3/28/2018 5:55:31 AM

Pros: It works, I've had it over a year and have had no issues.
Easy install for a first timer

Cons: the only one i can think of is how the sata ports are, was a little difficult plugging my new ssd in

Overall Review: When I installed this motherboard it was my first time upgrading my computer myself. (I bought it custom made from ibuypower 3 years prior to the upgrade with another asrock motherboard in it) it was incredibly easy for me to install it and all the other parts into it! and to make it even better it goes perfectly with my blue themed computer!

Worked great, until it didn't 3/1/2018 6:12:31 PM

Pros: + feature set
+ price
+ LAYOUT
+ appearance
+ features

Cons: - reliability

Overall Review: I purchased this motherboard as an upgrade for my son when a friend gave me a Cooler Master HAF X case. I was very pleased with this board until 3 weeks ago when it simply failed with little warning. This mobo resided in the HAF X case running a stock clocked FX 6300 CPU. Powered by a Corsair HX 750 PSU, and used Corsair Ballistix Tracer RAM and Crucial M500 SSD. It spent most of its life playing Minecraft and Roblox. Needless to say it was a really easy existence! Then one day, out of the blue, our less than 3 year old motherboard simply died. No warning. No sign or hints as to why it gave up the ghost. It's just dead.

Got two of these Mainboard's...the 4 USB 3.0 headers don't work on one: wroks only as 2.0 5/23/2017 4:02:01 PM

Pros: Love the features: It's supports of the FX-9590 & 9370 Cpu's, M.2, The on board sound, Purity Sound 2 are all the main things I need. Its also a piece of beauty to look at.

Cons: USB 3.0 headers only work as 2.0. Plug a USB 3 device in any of them and the system will fail. Plug any USB 2.0 device (flash drive, camara etc) and all is fine. With the M.2 ( I use the 500Gb Samsung EVO) you have just 6 SATA lane to use. At that you have just five (5) Sata to work with. I found that troubling as I normally have a ODD drive (LG) and have installed the dual bay mobile rack for both 2.5" and 3.25" SATA srives. That uses 3 Sata lanes right there. I use two, 2Tb drives for mulitmedia files (Music and Movies) and that's all the Sata's used up. It works but still wish I had 8 Sata's like the old Ausu Crosshair V Formula-Z board

Overall Review: Wish the Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z R.2 board would have M.2 and some other updates (USB 3.1) but that's some wishful thinking on my part.

DON'T BUY 3/22/2017 6:36:27 PM

Pros: It's working

Cons: I usually only buy top of the line main boards. I thought I'd give ASRock a chance since I seen them around so much. But now I know why, they are cheap as hell. They spam you to get extra money.So I physically get everything installed and I have to update drivers. never in the 30 years of me building machines have I ever had to updated driver be just to use the internet. when I finally got it installed it was trying to spam me with Norton, Google Chrome, Google Toolbar, I didn't pay to be spammed. plus I had to physically go through one by one selecting each update that I wanted to do to the machine instead of just having a checkbox. I hope they're board isn't as cheap as their business practices.

Northbridge Caught FIRE!!! 10/17/2016 9:37:56 PM

Pros: Looked great in my blue themed build. Purchased in June of 2015 and threw a fx9590 with a 120mm watercooler at it as well as a sapphire r9 290x 8gb graphics card and corsair vengeance 2x8gb 1600mhz ram. Build was stable and ran wonderfully up until a week ago.

Cons: As mentioned in other reviews and now in mine, the northbridge runs hot with the fx9590 processor. Mine actually caught fire while playing GTAV online. Advertised as "supports fx9590" but obviously can't take the extra wattage and heat. One egg given for a stable build lasting a little over a year but cannot and will not recommend after such an extreme failure!

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Due to power design, AMD platform generates more heat, especially FX series.
These chipset are designed to be tolerating for heat as well.
However, please allow better air circulation inside the chassis (install sufficient chassis fans).
As always, we will be more than happy to assist you if the mainboard is malfunctioned.

Good, stable motherboard, liked the m.2 slot 8/18/2016 8:12:38 AM

Pros: One of the very few 990FX chipset motherboards with an M.2 slot. Not a huge performance increase because of limited bandwidth, but exceeded the typical SATA 3 channel on the motherboard.

Works well with a AMD 8350

Cons: Not stable with the AMD FX 9590. Could have been heat related, but I am running with liquid cooling. When I downgraded to 8350, performance was so much more reliable with a relatively small hit.
Old and tired 990FX chipset needs a real refresh. Looking forward to Zen and supported motherboards in the next 6 months to a year.

Overall Review: Recommend this to others with a limited budget and want to try out M.2 SSD in a non-Intel motherboard.

Dear Steven,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Both mainboards are not the same but similar.
However, 990FX Extreme6 support FX-9xxx (220W) CPU but 990FX Killer does not, up to 125W and its major different.
As always, we appreciate your purchase, and constructive reviews are welcome.
