Excellent for price to performance! 8/10/2017 1:07:34 PM

Pros: In a nutshell, the board just works. Period. Straight up, it does what it boasts. I was easily able to overclock my g3258 to a stable 4.2ghz on the stock cooler... yes, stock cooler. The usb connections have not failed, all panel connections still working flawless. No hardware malfunctions of any kind.

Cons: Is this the prefect board? No, its old and retired. However, if you find one, even refurb... pick it up if you're into socket 1150 still... especially if you're going to be using the g3258 cpu.

Overall Review: Highly recommended if you're still on 1150.

Did Not Work 10/18/2016 8:27:12 PM

Pros: Well it looks nice and I got it for a really good deal

Cons: Plugged in the power and it just didn't work, lights and fan would work only if the 24 pin connector was put in a very weird angle.

Overall Review: Well, maybe it was just for me because all the other reviews seem to be great but just watch out.

It works 10/10/2016 2:56:08 PM

Pros: It does what it is supposed to do, not a bad deal if you want a cheap board to get you by till you can afford something better.

Cons: Since i put this board in my pc my peripherals have been acting up. The lights on my mouse and keyboard flicker and my subwoofer started cutting out. This leads me to think that some of the onboard ports are going to fail.

Good enough for a 2nd one. 5/21/2016 11:46:19 AM

Pros: This is a good board. Combine this with GSkill ddr3 1600mhz with a CL of 7 and a i3-4160 which has 4 data highways (4 threads) at 3.6ghz AND add a good SSD and you will have almost instantaneous results both ON and OFF the internet. I have used many of the Asrock Z97 boards for new builds. Haven't had a bad one yet!

Cons: None

Overall Review: All of the prices are more than reasonable and Windows 7 (being user friendly and user intuitive) is an easy load. I have rolled back 42 pc's to date to Win 7 from Win 8 and 10. I will not be buying the Skylake and the Gaby Lake cpu's and boards because you have to use Win 10. The Skylake will load with Win 7 but there will be restrictions according to MS. The Gaby Lake cpu's and boards WILL NOT work with Win 7.

Solid board 5/10/2016 7:58:07 AM

Pros: This board is solid. the overclocking genie is great for beginners. lots of fan headers. posted on first boot

Cons: One case fan header is right in the middle of the board. and makes cable management difficult. also if your looking for sli or xfire find a diffrent board. The automatic overclocker adds a bit too much vcore mines at 1.413 when i do it auto.

Overall Review: Great board for the money and a solid overclocker.
