I guess we'll see....

  • Summary: Could not get the board to boot up. Tried different power supply's and memory sticks but could not get to the Bios/boot screen. Screen remained blank as if it was receiving no signal.
  • Pros: One of the last remaining new boards that has AGP slot and IDE connections. ASROCK is usually good stuff
  • Cons: Not much....except read below

Great old-school motherboard

Anonymous, Newegg
24 June 2015
  • Summary: I highly recommend a 800MHz FSB CPU so CL 3.0 RAM and onboard graphics is possible, even if you plan on using an AGP card. You never know when you might need the onboard graphics and CL 2.5 RAM is expensive (and harder to find.) If you plan on streaming I also recommend a secondary PCI NIC.
  • Pros: This motherboard is great if you want to build a low cost system with old parts you have lying around (which was my situation.) I found it to be very fickle with CPUs that have a 1066 MHz FSB so I installed one with a 800MHz FSB. It does require RAM with CL 2.5 with 1066MHz FSB bus but not with 8...
  • Cons: The integrated NIC is not very good, I had to install my own PCI card because I couldn't stream HD video on Youtube even though the computer is more than capable. My Wifi (router in client mode) or WAN connection was NOT the issue, the NIC simply can't handle 720p or 1080p video. Also, when I had...

Works, but 1066 MHz FSB is too broken to rely on.

Adam M., Newegg

  • Summary: If you're using Windows ME like I am, install with only one of your two sticks of memory installed. Once it's installed, shut down, but the second 1 gb stick in, and edit C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.INI to contain the following.
  • Pros: This is a poor choice for building a modern Windows machine, but if you want it to run Windows 98/ME, as I did, it could hardly get any better. My specs are similar to the other retrocomputing reviewer's: E5800 CPU, 2 GB GSkill DDR400, Geforce 6800 Ultra, but I tossed in two SATA SSDs and an IDE ...
  • Cons: 1066 MHz support is essentially broken. I RMA'd the board thinking I'd gotten a bad one before installing an E5800 instead of the E6800 I initially chose. That resolved all my problems booting. And really, the E5800 is plenty fast in this system. Windows ME boots in about two seconds in my setup,...

Bios issues

Grace A., Newegg
6 December 2014
  • Pros: Worked for a few minutes before issues arose.
  • Cons: Bios is freezing up; Sometimes it takes 90 seconds to go from a black screen (more often than not, it does nothing) to seeing anything and then freezes during post.

asrock motherboard

MARK P., Newegg
20 November 2014
  • Pros: this was a very nice motherboard but my first asrock motherboard and it was nice to see it had a built in buillten board to be able to change the drive on the fly to boot from great suprize thanks newegg
  • Cons: well the memory was the hardest thing i had 15 sticks of memory rangeing from 256 to 2 gb and it would only run 2 of those sticks period but they were the same speed all them said they were the same but no not this motherboard but it is a nice motherboard

Won't POST using E7200 Core Duo

Stephen B., Newegg
24 May 2014
  • Summary: If you are using a Pentium 4, you are probably OK. My Pentium 4 processor worked fine. If you have a Core Duo processor that is over 800 MHz FSB, I believe you are taking a risk of having the same problem. If you leave your computer on 24/7, then you probably would not care much.
  • Pros: System works great when it's booted up. Using E7200 Core Duo, it can stream video smoothly at 720p using AGP GeForce 6200 (breaks up at 1080p) using Windows XP and FreeBSD 10 with Firefox. No problems with any drivers included in the CD for Windows XP and 98. Very nice being able to play my Win 9...
  • Cons: The BIOS seriously needs a patch to support E7200 Core Duo. Motherboard is running with 1066 MHz FSB, 2 DDR400 500 MB RAM (1 GB), and AGP GeForce 6200. I turn my computer off every time I am done using it. Every time I turn it back on, it will not POST. I hit my reset button, alt/cntl/del, does n...

User Review

Patrick L., Newegg
2 May 2014
  • Summary: I got this MB, along with a refurbished E7500 Core2 Duo and a secondhand Asus Xonar HDAV1.3 Slim soundcard to hold me over until I was ready to build a new i5 or i7 based PC. That was more then six month ago and I feel no pressing need to get started on a new build.
  • Pros: Allows you to add multi-core CPUs to older single-core systems without having to replace everything else.
  • Cons: More RAM slots and SATA connectors would be nice.

ASRock 775I65G R3.0 LGA775

Anonymous, Newegg
2 March 2014
  • Summary: Had to reinstall my old Prescott 800 MB to get my Win 7 Home Premium 32 Bit working again. My Six year old P-4, 3 GHz still works great and booted up my Windfows 7 like it was nothing.
  • Pros: Bought from Newegg.
  • Cons: MB Video Chip failed after two months, Drivers would not load. Tried my NVidia 7600 AGP Card, still Monitor would said "no signal". Board is Junk, going to RMA from Newegg. In this case paying for the extended warranty will come in handy. First bad MB from ASRock I've bought after eight years.

Great AGP board

Mark S., Newegg
8 February 2014
  • Summary: I had s couple of 3850 AGP boards in socket A boards. This was a chance to couple these with X6800 cpu I had. This would be a perfect AGP board it the memory access speed was a bit better and the capacity was increased some. Current setup has 2 IDE optical drives with 1 IDE hard drive.
  • Pros: Best AGP board around. Chance to use left over IDE and AGP parts.
  • Cons: Memory is a bit slow.

Outstanding Opportunity!

James D., Newegg
31 December 2013
  • Summary: Bottom line is that I have a system that screams when running games produced between 1995 and 2005. The idea for this project came as a result of my not being able to run old X-wing and Tie Fighter space combat simulation games in Windows XP or Windows 7.
  • Pros: When I saw this motherboard offered at Newegg I got VERY excited! I had in mind to build a new computer capable of playing “old” games and this fit the bill to a tee! The pros: 1) The Intel 865 chipset is supported by Windows 9X, Windows XP, and higher 2) The AGP 8x slot allows using the highest ...
  • Cons: There are no real cons if you accept that you are dealing with older tech that is being pushed to the limit. That said, I would offer these caveats. In no particular order: 1) The motherboard specs give a 300Mhz FSB limit, but that doesn’t guarantee you can get that high. I ran into an FSB wall a...
