Worked perfectly till a week ago 7/25/2012 12:08:29 PM

Pros: Worked fine untill....

Cons: RAM slot 3 and 4 stopped working for no reason. I updated to BIOS 2.30 then a week later, the ram stopped working. My RAM was in slot 2 & 4 in dual channel. Now its no longer in DUAL Channel. Sad it's already defective after less than a year....

Great board... 5/5/2012 1:07:16 AM

Pros: This board was just OK until a recent 2.10 bios update. all I can say is WOW... Everything is responsive and blazing fast.

Before the bios update the SATA controller was stuck at active UDMA 5 mode. Runs at UDMA 6 now :)

Cons: N/A

Overall Review: I purchased this board from micro center for $50 bucks off with the purchase of a core i5 CPU. so the board ended up costing me around 50 bucks. what a deal!

Great Motherboard 4/24/2012 10:44:24 AM

Pros: More that enough connectors for everything. Used this for my first HTPC build. Very nice BIOS interface.

Cons: Wish the owners manual had more information about the different BIOS options. The software that comes with it loads some junk. The Sound Blaster Fx software starting giving me a license error after a few days. Why bother even forcing us to load this?

Pros: Good looking BIOS. Set up without a hitch. Loaded drivers in Win7 and everything just worked.

Excellent layout and spacing for a microATX board. Works well with compact cases.

Cons: Onboard USB3.0 header would be super nice.

Overall Review: PCI ports are going out of fashion, but a floppy port? /shrug
Install the drivers from the disc individually.

Great Mobo 3/6/2012 12:26:47 PM

Pros: This motherboard is awesome it has a great bios setup. It has lots of overclocking features for those overclock kings. it has a really nice and sturdy build. they use nice material and looks really sleek

Cons: ok i have one serious problem with this motherboard and may have to rma it. The sound for some reason pops and crackles now i thought this was a driver issue but i have spent the last few days that i had off trying multiple new drivers i tryed uninstalling windows and reinstalling with no luck. i tryed a few different versions of the bios still nothing. i really do not want to have to RMA it. and on another note i dont think asrock has a toll free tech support line and this makes it alot harder to get the help i need.

Overall Review: for what it comes with this is a great mono if anyone else had this audio problem and found a fix could you e-mail me at adaml4239@gmail.com would love to have this problem outta my way and would deffanitly change my raiting to 5 eggs

Great MicroATX board! 2/13/2012 6:14:12 PM

Pros: Very nice UEFI (graphical UI) BIOS
Super overclocking beast for the $$$. Out of the box easy "auto Turbo" OC to 4.4 GHz for i5/i7 CPUs. I manually achieved 4.5 and 4.8 rock-solid using Corsair H60 cooler on an i5-2500k (Prime 95 tortured). This mighty-mo(bo) includes BIOS (manual/auto) fan control for CPU (PWM) and 2 add'l 3 pin fans. Also has a 4th 3 pin power header for water cooler pump (runs 100%). For the money (under $100) it's a super board! IT has the same OC settings as the $180 range mobos, just lacks > 4 phase power on voltages but you don't need that for i5 or i7's. Also provides a legacy PCI slot (for my sound blaster card).

Cons: Single PCIe x16 slot for 3D gaming graphics - but I don't do SLI

Overall Review: Don't hesistate - this board really is a steal of Z68 boards and has full support for Intel AHCI (SSD drives), RAID, super overclocking capability, and memory timing controls.
