Nice board

Pros: pro

Cons: con

Other Thoughts: Been running this board in a htpc since 2013 with an amd-a10 (not the K). I leave it on 24/7 because it does double duty as a nas. Never had an issue and would recommend it even nearly 4 years later.

Pros: I like Asrock m/b's and this one appealed to me. But as it turned out it was a bad purchase due to when I bought it.
Very disappointed with N/E and Asrock timing to advertised the newer FM2A88X !

Cons: This M/B was discontinued a few days after I received it. Newegg's page for it had and still has a banner stating A new version of this M/B is available, It also states Discontinued. I fell that I could have bought the ASRock FM2A88X-ITX, for the same price with much better attributes, including 2 HDMI ports 1/in, 1/out

Other Thoughts: Gave Newegg 2 eggs because of how this M/b was offered and the A88 was not, when I made my purchase.

Awesome HTPC board

Pros: Don't even know where to begin. This thing is loaded with a TON of great features on the this tiny little board. Here are some that I can think of off the top of my head.
- 7 onboard SATA connections, 1 eSATA
- Supports up to 32GB of RAM (pricey, but insane)
- UEFI support For SSD's
- 7.1 Surround if using for media PC.
- Plenty of USB 3.0 and 2.0 connections onboard and in back.
Being a person who has built 5 Intel i7 builds every time they came out with a new chip since the bloomfield chip, this FM2 build surprised me as well as this board.

Cons: Heat in BIOS seems off. Once installed the ASRock xtreme manager (fan manager) it seemed to be fine and reading the temps correctly. Also, if you plan on buy an aftermarket heatsink, it takes very limited types as the bottom plate does not come off easily. I just used the standard AMD heatsink.

Other Thoughts: Being the size of this thing, this is a GREAT BOARD with TONS of features for its size. Now, I bought this against the abysmal reviews stating that they had BSOD's and bent pins on the CPU's and a couple with DOA's. I have ordered dozens of motherboards and CPU's from newegg and never had issues with pins on the motherboard or CPU's. I did not let the steer me away from this board. DOA's happen when you manufacturing 1000's of boards it is bound to happen. But, all of the other ones are user errors with the other hardware not being compatible with the board or they have bad hardware. As far as it went on my build was piece of cake, had no issues.

- ASRock FM2A85X-ITX
-AMD A6-6400K Richland 3.9GHz Socket FM2 65W
- 4Gb of G. Skill 1600 (PC3 12800)
- SILVERSTONE Milo series ML05B (Case)
- SILVERSTONE ST45SF 450W SFX12V 80 PLUS (PS)
- 128GB SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW
- 80GB HDD for programs\DVRs (had laying around)

machine gets a 5.9 on the windows index rating. And it was built for about 300 bucks. Could not have asked for anything more. Had the SSD, memory and the HDD laying around from old builds. Use for streaming and listening to music, watching live tv on windows media center. I will be buying this board again for my NAS build for its abundance in SATA ports.

Just one thing..

Pros: Solid/stable
Flash directly from bios on DHCP enabled networks!!! (so convenient)
No issues with Richland support

Cons: I know this can't be helped because of ITX specs, but I ran into an issue with my build where a low profile cooler was pushing on my ram modules. The cooler also blocked the USB 3 header, which is very near the cpu socket. Just some things to consider when building on a tiny platform. Measure twice, buy once.

Very little overclocking headroom on the d4 chipset. I bought a locked chip and was forced to raise the base clock to get my ram up to spec. South bridge hits a wall very quickly, even with voltage increases as high as 40%. I imagine this is mostly my fault for not buying the unlocked chip but the limiting component is on the motherboard not the processor.

As always, bios documentation could be a bit more thorough.

When will manufacturers quit putting VGA outputs on the back panel? Two DVI's would have been great!

Other Thoughts: Overall a great product. Updating firmware while in the bios is fantastic. This is great news for linux users who'd like to flash their boards.

ASRock FM2 A85X

Pros: To start this board was a replacement for a P55 chipset and an i3 HTPC that was ageing. So some of my comparison is between the two. I also tend to go Intel for speed and reliability and haven't owned a AMD sense the FX55 I had a long time ago. First off the install was flawless and easy. Combined with a A8 5600K (trying to at least match the speed of my i3 550) Everything worked well. drivers install, sound, graphics all good with my Yamaha and bit streaming. Performance was good. It's just as fast as the i3 but a little smother in transitions programs to programs. I had some headaches with the i3 set up and sound and video. Not with this set up. And with 7 SATA 6.0 connections I was set for a great HTPC. The picture had a little more vivid color. The CPU fan was louder and I expected that. Needs an aftermarket one. The X boost work well after I figured it out. You need to download the complete manual from the web site. Basically its one button over clocking on boot up. About 300 Mhz.

Cons: The only issue I had was the CPU temp sensors. Using the included AXTU overclocking and monitoring program it would show one temp. It seamed low 48c under load with prime. I tried Hardware monitor, CPU z Real temp and all read really wrong temps. CPU cores like 5c, 25c, -15c just not right. I did a bunch of testing and the most reliable temp monitoring was GPU-z and the AXTU. Under load the CPU at 3.9 was 56c and GPU 70c Not bad temps for such a small heat sink.

Other Thoughts: I had a 6670 laying around I used with my i3 so i tried Dual Graphics. It work but the added gaming ability it not that much. I played Dirt 3 and it ran on Med but was glitchy. It ran on low without the card just fine. Overall I have a more compatible updated HTPC and better graphics reliability quad core instead of dual without a dedicated card so Im happy
