1 out of 5 eggs 3rd time is a charm right? 09/24/2014

This review is from: ASRock Z97 Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It looks pretty? I hope someone makes a decent Motherboard with blue in it here soon as i have no reason to expect this board to last out a year and all my other components are blue.

Cons: So first board went belly up about 4-6 weeks after using it. Updating the BIOS boogered the SATA controller somehow and broke AHCI functionality. the HD began to boot again once i changed it to IDE. After RMA'ing that board and waiting 3 weeks for the next one to come in, it was DOA. In the 5 days it has taken me to get the second RMA, i have been told several times the board had been tested. Not sure how you can screw up installing a motherboard but.....using my CompTIAn A+ skills (lol?) If the RAM, SSD, and Video card boot in 2 other systems..... and your board will not power up at all in 2 different cases with two different power supplies even when jumping the power switch on both cases ....its pretty obvious your motherboard is DOA.

I asked for a prepaid shipping label Thursday and was told for the second day in a row..."Someone will send you one in 30 minutes." ....


Other Thoughts: Wish i could give zero eggs.
wish i could use the PC i built 3 months ago.
wish i was a little bit taller
wish i would have gotten an MSI.
wish i was a baller
wish i had a spare hundred bucks to buy a proper motherboard
wish there were more than 3 people working @ ASRock
wish it took less than 5 business days to get an RMA number and shipping label.
