With HDMI-In, users may conveniently toggle between the computer’s screen and the secondary device’s screen with a hotkey, or even use their secondary device without powering on the computer.
  • newegg Premium Gold Caps This motherboard uses Premium Gold Caps that are 100% made in Japan. These solid capacitors are sleek, high-gloss caps with a premium gold coating that represents its long-lasting durability and ultra-stable performance.
  • newegg 8+2 Power Phase Design with Digi Power Designed with a 8+2 Power Phase design, this motherboard features sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Hence, this motherboard offers unmatched overclocking capabilities with the best system stability, plus enhanced performance with the lowest temperature for advanced gamers and extreme overclockers.

  • newegg High-Density Glass-Fabric PCB What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water: H2O, humidity, or whatever you’d like to call it. And even though you do not see the water, there actually may be lots of excessive moisture in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the Wicked Witch of the West, but it dies of short circuiting. Luckily, ASRock has a new High-Density Glass-Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
  • newegg X-Boost Brilliantly designed for smart overclocking, ASRock X-Boost Technology is able to unleash the hidden power of your CPUs. Simply press “X” when turning on the PC, X-Boost will automatically overclock the relative components to get a performance boost of up to 15.77%! With the smart X-Boost, overclocking CPU can become a nearly one-button process.

Bad Motherboard 12/23/2017 11:02:01 AM

Pros: Worked less than 6 months. When I first installed this board it worked fine. then it quit working. I tried several times to reinstall the OS from scratch and it kept bombing out. Even updated the bios, nothing helped.

Cons: Not sure why this board does not accept an OS, but this board will not work.

Overall Review: Did a complete diagnostic on board. checked bios parameters. Got windows 10 to load then it just quit working. reset cmos several times. Nothing helped. Bad board.

Amazing motherboard with one slight issue however..... 9/6/2017 9:06:23 AM

Pros: -Runs and works great!
-Looks amazing!
-Has slots for up to three video cards
-Also supports hybrid crossfire/dual graphics
-Has all the bells and whistles you could ever hope for in a FM2+ socket motherboard (on board post LED Codes,Dual Bios Switch,Power button on motherboard,Reset button on motherboard)

Cons: -Now the one issue with this motherboard that forced me to deduct is an egg is that the VRM heatsink on this motherboard runs really hot!

-The solution to this problem is either get a really strong exhaust fan,change the VRM heatsink or get a pci slot cooler to put under it. However the best way out would be to do all three or at least one of the three.

-After I added a strong exhaust Cooler Master Jetflo 120mm and also added a PCI slot cooler now the VRM heatsink runs warm and doesn't instantly burn your hand anymore.

-Needed to warn other people about that problem with this motherboard though!

Overall Review: -I would recommend this board regardless of the VRM heat issue but I would also recommend that anyone who buys this motherboard take the necessary steps to cool down that Heatsink as well!

Great for beginner computer builders 7/12/2017 1:10:42 PM

Pros: -Affordable
-Dual bios
-UEFI easy to use and navigate

Cons: -Color of PCB is dark brown

Overall Review: For a beginner computer builder such as myself, this board is inexpensive and easy to put together. Components for this platform remain inexpensive, too. The motherboard I received had Asrock's latest BIOS version (4.20) already installed, so there was no need to update the system to make it compatible with my Athlon X4 880K that I used. RAM compatibility was a non-issue with the G.Skill TridentX 2400MHz kit I utilized, too. Overclocking of the CPU was easy through the UEFI.

Overall, for the price of entry, this is a good board if you're looking to build an FM2+ system.

Powerful motherboard for the money. 12/28/2016 5:24:53 AM

Pros: You get a lot of features for less than $90.00 as it sells for now. I have 2 of these. One for my every day use PC and the other for a HTPC build. No problems with either. It's actually overkill for a general purpose PC but I always like having the extra options for upgrade purposes. Fits in a mid tower case with no problems. Not saving a lot by buying a lesser board.

Cons: None

Reliable and gets the job done 11/9/2016 2:10:25 AM

Pros: Supports all AMD A10s well.
Reliable.
Can boot and run from A10 GPU even with 3 plug-in GPUs

Cons: Bios configurability could be better - UFEI BIOS is a PAIN to work with and the boot menu doesn't handle removeable devices without having to regonfigure the BIOS EVERY BLOODY TIME.

Great stable motherboard 8/18/2016 8:50:39 AM

Pros: excellent quality components and build
on-board LED POST readout is awesome. Last time I had this was on an old MSI motherboard on my first Athlon build.
on-board power and reset buttons
great audio components.
Dual/Redundant BIOS (w/mechanical switch)
auto-update BIOS from within BIOS

Cons: BIOS layout and click sounds are a bit goofy
HDMI-in cannot be run in windowed mode, kindof makes the rest of the PC useless to simply use the monitor

Overall Review: My last build was a Phenom 9850 on an even older Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe board, which was an awesome board. So, I was a bit spoiled by it, a little hesitant to upgrade (it was old, but working fine), and move away from ASUS. I had built a simple PC for office functions for my wife using an ASRock motherboard, so I knew they were good quality for the price.
I'm very glad I ended up buying this board, as it's been very stable, with an awesome set of features for the price. This thing has been running for nearly 2 years, almost always powered on, so it's quite stable.
I'm currently running on an older A8-5500 Trinity w/onboard graphics disabled and a discrete R9-270X card. Not the hottest build out there, but runs whatever I throw at it. The plan is to upgrade to an A10-7890k in the near future, and then wait for the next iteration of AMD processors. I'll most likely be coming back to ASRock!

EGGCELLENT PRODUCT!!! 8/8/2016 7:35:32 AM

Pros: i have an a10-7890k in this board with 16 gig of ddr3 2133 amd ram. this board allows me to set the clock on the gpu relatively high without even the slightest hiccup! the cpu side of the processor is clocked at 4.6 and 4.9 ghz with the turbo core on. and the graphics side of the processor is overclocked to 1200 mhz. i also have the northbridge overclocked multiplier set at 20x. this machine rocks really hard. i am using it for a basic gamer and htpc, and the machine runs flawlessly as both! thanks asrock and newegg, you all rock really hard!

Cons: NONE!!

Overall Review: i HIGHLY recommend this set up to all!

Fantastic Mobo, Excellent quality, Nice Layout and Great Utilities. 7/7/2016 10:44:14 AM

Pros: It's been awhile since I've used a full sized ATX motherboard. I have to say this is without question one of the very best I've ever had the pleasure of using in a personal build. In the past I've used many different manufacturers. Each of them had their strong points and weak points. This ASRock board hit the mark on every single point. I almost NEVER rate anything a five star. But for features, layout and ease of setup.... this board is truly a 5 star item. As with any piece of electronics you get a "stinker" now and then. I always read reviews and wonder if I will have any of the same issues. I check compatibility first- since the motherboard is the foundation of any build- from there I narrow down what I'd like to use for my build. It took me over a month to decide on all the components for this build. Since it was for me- I wanted perfection. I'm a retired IT Manager and Network Engineer. Having been around computer technology since it was first offered as a major at college, I've worked in the field for many years.
ASRock- you have won my loyalty.

Cons: Not a single complaint.

Overall Review: My Build:
1 x ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
1 x AMD A10-7700K Kaveri 10 Compute Cores (4 CPU + 6 GPU) 3.4 GHz Socket FM2+ 95W Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7
1 x HyperX Fury Red Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model HX318C10FRK2/16
1 x EVGA 100-B1-0700-K1 700W SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Power Supply
1 x Mushkin Enhanced Reactor 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDRE256GB
1 x WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX - OEM
1 x ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise
2 x 120mm Computer Case Cooling Fan LP4 Adapter Blue LED Silent Rosewill
1 x Rosewill Computer Case - CHALLENGER - ATX Mid Tower - Black, Gaming - Three Included Fans - Two Extra Side Fans Space
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit

Now, I'm not into hardcore gaming, graphics or the like- I wanted a quick, stable system that I could enjoy for at least the next year or so... I wanted to "fool around" with mild overclocking. I feel that the system I've put together gives me everything I want in a personal build.
Everything just plain old works!
