Asrock 870 Extreme 3

JUDAH W., Newegg
1 February 2014
  • Pros: Compatible with a lot of good equipment.
  • Cons: Have had problems with this mobo since the beginning. Every few months or so, I would have a problem with it causing me to replace a part until ultimately I replaced everything except the motherboard. After replacing each part it would work for a while and then another error would come up saying ...

Kenneth S., Newegg

Defective

Matthew D., Newegg
5 August 2011
  • Summary: con 3 is not too uncommon, but still sucks to loose a PCI slot.
  • Pros: good specs
  • Cons: 1) DEFECTIVE. One of the PC slots does not work (as reported by other users). 2) PCI-X16 slot too close to audio port tower. Large cards might be an issue. 3) PCI-X8 large video card blocks PCI-1 slot completely.

Shovelware surprise

Jeff S., Newegg
16 July 2011
  • Summary: This will be my last ASSrock product.
  • Pros: The cons outweigh the pros
  • Cons: So I sit and watch in horror as the system I just built gets "acrobat reader" and "creative sound blasster x-fi mb trial" shoved on from the "Drivers" CD. Beware of clicking Install all from the drivers menu. And setup crashed, rebooted. A dialog box with a red x and no message

User Review

Vincent L., Newegg
25 June 2011
  • Summary: Another reviewer stated same issues but when he got to the USB part it cut out. If you see this please edit your review and post the fix. Otherwise this is getting RMA'd.
  • Pros: Good features...
  • Cons: Very finicky motherboard. Picky about RAM it takes (make sure you get one of the QVL). Receiving plenty of BSODs concerning USB and I have NO clue why. Customer service from ASROCK sucks.
