Great Motherboard and awesome HW RAID4/24/2015 10:25:21 AM

Pros: This is cheap and well built motherboard. After a lot of work I was able to get a hardware RAID 5 setup with 7 3TB drives and also boot Windows 7 x64 on one SSD (see other thoughts on how-to)

Cons: only 2 x PCI-E x1 slots and 1 x PCI-E x16

Overall Review: The manual for RAID is helpful but is incorrect. You CAN use Windows 7 and RAID-5 GPT (3TB+) This isn't just for Win8 1) get the "rcadm" file from ASrock website and put it on a USB stick. This is in the RAID manual URL 2) make a bootable Windows install USB stick-2 with ONLY x64x on it. Having both will prevent step 3 from working 3) get the RAID driver on the USB stick 1 4) Boot system and enter setup (F2 / Del) and change the controller to RAID 5) turn off SATA/IDE option 6) boot system and pres F11 to enter the Shell, make sure the USB Stick-1 is in the system. 7) follow the appendix / raid manual to make arrays. 8) make sure the SSD or HD intended for the OS is an array as well. I used RAID option -v or "volume" to create a single disk array that will show up in the windows install. 9) Install Windows and load driver and select the RAID driver from earlier step. 10) party

RAID option is useless, poor design4/17/2015 1:54:49 PM

Pros: I use this motherboard and it has been mostly good and was able to overclock stable with watercooling.

Cons: The big downfall to this motherboard was getting the hardware RAID to be stable. It may be a defective MOBO but after a week of solid troubleshooting and many fresh installs with current drivers... I could not transfer files to the RAID array without it eventually causing a BSOD. System is stable otherwise and memory has been tested to isolate the driver to the RAID controller. Going back to software striping win Windows 7 which has been ironically stable for over a year.

Overall Review: After years of owning AMD products. This will definitely be my last one.

Top notch quality4/9/2015 9:20:16 AM

Pros: I can't believe how long these fans last. Cranking lots of air since 10/14/2006. WOW! I have bought other fans that didn't last a year that start clicking and clacking that cost $9.00 You get what you pay for. Expensive, but they last over a decade...

Cons: Can be a bit loud, but that is because it is pushing LOTS of air. Just get a fan controller. Recommend getting "NZXT SEN-MIX2 Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller"

Not long lasting4/9/2015 8:45:39 AM

Pros: moves air pretty well, but I wasn't *that* impressed

Cons: Starts clacking/clicking about 11 months of ownership. I had to take out 3 out of 8 that I purchased. The value of these is significantly reduced due to this.

Overall Review: I have a "SILVERSTONE FM121 120mm Case Cooling Fan" That is over 5 years old and is still cranking. They cost $20 each, so I guess that is why. That fan is louder than this one, but just put a controller on it. You typically get what you pay for with fans.

Stopped working properly5/13/2014 3:38:11 PM

Pros: It is relatively cheaper, I guess.

Cons: Started having choppy video and slow refresh rates while watching movies.

Overall Review: Hoping this is covered in warranty, by I highly doubt it.

Gift From Zues9/25/2008 8:46:22 PM

Pros: This piece of equipment has excellent usability. Very quick and informative. I got this product mainly because it handles lots of connections with torrents. I had a lot of problems with Netgear anything. I am very very happy to the nth power with all the features. Adding people to the reserved IP table is super slick. So much is done automatically, that I am used to doing manually. However, if I wanted to configure something specifically, I could. Word

Cons: none yet, i think most of the cons from other users were ignorant or DOA hardware.

Overall Review: The guys that designed the lights on this thing must have been rolling on ecstasy. The flashing LED's shoot out like 20 trabillion candelas. LOL. I think im going to have to move it somewhere inconspicuous.
