ASRock ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming E3V5 Performance Gaming/OC LGA 1151 Intel C232 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Great board so far, but has one minor problem... 08/24/2016

This review is from: ASRock ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming E3V5 Performance Gaming/OC LGA 1151 Intel C232 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Solid, reliable, runs Windows 7 and Windows 10 perfectly with my Xeon E3-1245 v5, and DDR4-2400 ram.

Cons: One complaint I have, is that I cannot wake this motherboard using my usb keyboard or usb mouse, even though the options are enabled in the bios. Doesn't matter which usb port I use. All other Asrock boards I've had work, but not this one...

ASRock C226M WS Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 DDR3 1600/1333

5 out of 5 eggs Works great until you update the bios... 08/16/2016

This review is from: ASRock C226M WS Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 DDR3 1600/1333

Pros: I really like these boards and have had no problems until recently...

Cons: After the last bios update, (version 2.0) Ubuntu Server 16.04 no longer recognises the onboard I217-LM nic. Logs showed the nic was "unclaimed" and that there was an "nvm checksum invalid" error. After researching and experimenting, I came up with this solution:

Find the "Intel Ethernet Connections Boot Utility, Preboot Images, and EFI Drivers" page and download PREBOOT.EXE. Run to extract files.

Create a bootable usb stick, that boots freedos. I used Rufus. Copy the files BootIMG.FLB and DOS/bootutil.exe to the stick. (Don't copy the directory 'DOS' - just the file inside named bootutil.exe)

Next, boot the server from the stick.

Then run:

bootutil -wold -all
bootutil -wole -all

The first command turns off WOL (wake on lan), and the second command enables it again. This action will correct/reset the checksum.

BIOSTAR B85MG Ver. 6.x LGA 1150 Intel B85 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: B85 chipset is nice. Supports haswell cpus, which are still very fast. I installed a G1840 in one, and a G3260 in another with 1600 ram. Memtest86 shows very high cpu cache and memory access speeds. Could install up to i7.

Cons: Only 4 usb ports on the back, and has 2 ps/2 ports.

Other Thoughts: The systems I build run 24/7. Biostar has been reliable.
