ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Performance LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: legacy connectors for obsolete floppy drives

Cons: does not support ivy bridge out of the box (55 error code). tried a g860 sandy bridge, got a 45 error code; it too was too new for the bios. customer service agreed to send me a new bios chip with updated bios to fix the problem. got the new chip yesterday; 23 days later; marked as ver 2.20. still got a 55 error code with the ivy bridge; swapped to the g860 sandy bridge and still got a 55 error code with an immediate power down of the motherboard (something new). decided to end my two month journey of frustration with this board, and ended its functionality forever. small satisfaction for me; no regrets, however.

Other Thoughts: in support of customer service taking 23 days to get an updated (?) bios chip to me; you have to consider the time they had off for the holidays. as a side note, there are cheaper ways to transfer data from your old floppy disks than building a dedicated computer; it just sounded like a good idea on a late night, or something.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: has legacy floppy and ide connections. asrock website lists ivy bridge processors as compatible with motherboard.

Cons: cant use the motherboard. got a 55 error code; swapped out every other component with same result and RMA'd the obviously defective motherboard. replacement has same problem, asrock tech support finally responded that i need to update the bios to use an ivy bridge cpu. they also said customer service would contact me.

Other Thoughts: customer service has not contacted me, tried to contact tech support again and asked how to upgrade a bios when post fails; what cpu i needed to post so i can upgrade the bios; or how long it normally takes to hear from customer service, and haven't heard back from them either.
