ASRock H97M-ITX/ac LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Easy install, well documented, nice layout.
I liked that it came with Wireless AC card, good on board audio, and a USB 3.0 pinout for the case.

Cons: Sticky residue on bottom of board, no bios speaker pinouts.

Other Thoughts: First time I've gotten a motherboard that stuck to the foam packing in the box when I pulled it out. Had to peel the foam off, then it stuck to my hands. Considered doing an RMA right off the bat, but figured it was just an epoxy residue that never dried or cured. Built the whole machine up, noting that there was no place for me to mount a bios speaker. Figured it would be fine, but then the machine didn't boot. I had no bios beeps to help diagnose why it wasn't booting. Had to strip the machine back down to just motherboard, CPU, ram, and PSU and booted it outside the case. Luckily it all came up so I reassembled and it worked fine. This is my first socket 1150 board - is it normal for them to come without bios speaker pinouts on the motherboard? I guess I should have checked out the manual online before ordering.

As far as the residue / epoxy - the machine has been running fine for 24 hours - I hope it continues to do so. Didn't feel like processing an RMA on it.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Just wanted to confirm for people who are wondering that this will fit in a low profile case. You will need your own LP bracket. I ordered it, not sure if it would fit or not.

Cons: None
