Overall a very nice computer for the price.
Pros: Good value. I have purchased a couple of them for clients, no problems so far.
Cons: I knocked off 1 egg because it only has 2 SATA ports. I wish it had 1 or 2 more SATA ports on the motherboard,
Overall Review: Plan to pick up another for a client and swap the 1 TB drive for an SSD. PS. The machine runs great with an SSD.
So far, so good
Pros: Booted up without any issues. You can update from the BIOS with an network cable plugged in. It pulls the latest BIOS from the ASROCK servers, nice feature. I am not a big overclocker, but I did the no brain overclock of a Ryzen 1600 to 3.7 without any issues.
Cons: No real complaints.
Overall Review: I have an Antec 900 and the upper fan power plug has a very short wire. I wish ASRock had put a case fan header at the top of the motherboard, but it wasn't a big deal because I has a molex to 3 pin adapter laying around. Since each fan in the Antec 900 can be adjusted independently of the motherboard, no a big deal. "This review for ASRock review rebate program."
Cons: The board I received had 3 issues. 1 Random reboots, USB 3 header didn't work, and the BIOS showed the APU temperature at 128C at all times, even when doing a completely cold boot. Flashed the BIOS which had no effect!
Overall Review: Sadly, I was in a hurry and didn't read all of the negative reviews. Shame on me.
