Slow and Silent RMA Department

Andrew M., Newegg
20 February 2012
  • Summary: The product is good, but the support is bad. I have had to RMA other products before and the manufacturers are typically very good about letting the customer know about their product's status and progress. And timely as well.
  • Pros: The motherboard itself is pretty good. While it worked I really liked it. As a computer engineering student I really enjoyed tweaking the clockrates and configuring the voltages and frequencies. I also really liked the fan on the North Bridge, not sure how effective it was but it was still pretty...
  • Cons: Unfortunately after several months of use 2 of the DIMM slots failed (that's not the con, these things happen). I contacted customer support; got my RMA with little hassle and shipped it off to California. The day prior to its arrival I emailed ASRock to let them know and request confirmation tha...

Great Motherboard!

Eugene D., Newegg

  • Summary: Bought this to replace an old AMD Socket A setup that died and didn't do a lot of investigating prior to purchase. Got lucky with this choice - put everything together, fired it up, and off it went.
  • Pros: Lots of features that work
  • Cons: None so far

Nice

Anonymous, Newegg
26 January 2012
  • Summary: Not much of an overclocker, can't comment because I could care less to push my components over stock (which is good enough). I went with ASROCK because I have another ASROCK mobo (n68csucc) that has been going for over 1 1/2 yrs, I only hope ASROCK support is good, or that this mobo NEVER dies.
  • Pros: Sexy looking. Price. Ready for AM3+ cpus. 3way PCIEx16 slots. 2600 mhz Hyper Transport. USB 3.0 support. Little Northbridge fan. Crossfire X so you can have a HD6870 with an HD6850, cool stuff.
  • Cons: no onboard video support. when you get this mobo, make sure to have a video in hand, you'll Need it.

Very Satisfied

Daryl R., Newegg
10 January 2012
  • Summary: Since there isn’t much difference between the 890FX and 990FX motherboards I decided to go with this one. I wanted something that could handle my 1090T, as well as AM3+ CPUs. I’ve been running this board for four months without any problems.
  • Pros: Socket AM3+ (also compatible with AM3 processors) 3-pin and 4-pin CPU fan headers (I'm running 2 fans off of the 4-pin header without issue) 3 chassis fan headers 1 power fan header Floppy header IDE header 4 USB 3.0 (2X front header + 2X back) 2 USB 2.0 headers (2X each for a total of 4) 8 SATA ...
  • Cons: The one I got needed a BIOS update to run FX series processors. I easily updated mine from v1.4 to v1.6 and then later to v 1.8 without any problems while using the Windows utility available on the ASRock website. Not a CON, but for those interested here's my hardware: Corsair 600T ASRock 890FX D...

Very Poor Raid Options

Anonymous, Newegg
9 January 2012
  • Summary: I want to buy more of the Asrock boards in the future but no, if they do not fix the Raid Performance. If I get it fixed by Asrock tech support with a newer bios, I will raise the eggs to 5. Boot up is slower due to the 64kb settings.
  • Pros: Reliable and great looking board so far. I have it running almost a year now. Performance is way lower in comparison to my Asus Crosshair Formula II. Due to slow Raid-0 performance. I am afraid of their newer 990FX boards due to the same problem
  • Cons: I am giving only 2 eggs as it has a very poor Raid options set up. NO! 16kb blocksize settings available! Only 64kb and 128kb for raid-0 set up. The standard options were always choices of 8kb, 16kb, 32kb, 64kb, 128, BLOCK SIZE settings for configuring Raid-0 performance I contacted AsRock suppor...

Great Deal

Kevin D., Newegg
12 December 2011
  • Summary: I really like this motherboard. I upgraded from a Gigabyte that i really liked and was skeptical of the ASRock brand, but I must say, Bravo to ASRock.
  • Pros: Great hardware for the price point. Has all the new bells and whistles as well as the IDE port I was looking for. Worked right first time booting and hasn't caused any issues yet. I like the OC BIOS. I don't typically OC, but I had to try it, and it worked well with the stock cooler.
  • Cons: Whilst the manual is large, it could use more explanation on some of the features

Extremely Happy!!! after 6 months.

Abel M., Newegg
11 December 2011
  • Summary: This was my first motherboard purchase since i switched from Mac world. this replaced an msi 785GM-E65 board. I was very scepticle about changing due to inexpirenceand info i got from friends about brand. only had 17 reviews at the time but wanted to replace for upcoming bulldozer.
  • Pros: Only one to have everything i needed as far as now and future upgrades. plenty of fan headers, old ide port for my dvd drive, cooling fan for Northbridge heatsink, easy bios, plenty pci-e slots. it jumped my ram wei up a couple notches 7.1 to 7.6 Works like a charm! did i mention the amount of fa...
  • Cons: packaging......could have been better like putting the motherboard in static sleeve or bubble wrap. even though mine came in perfect condition. 990 fx came out shortly after i bought it. the northbridge cooling fan could have been positioned better for those who want to run the corsair water cool...

  • Summary: If you've never heard of ASRock, dont let that scare you off. This is an up and coming company and they have delivered a hell uva product with this one! Will fit any AM3/AM3+ CPU and my 1100T works a charm.
  • Pros: This mobo is the bees knees enough said! I took a punt on this one as it was a AM3/AM3+ mobo and i could pop an octo core into it later, as well as it being at a good price at the time, and im glad i did! Setup was a breeze! Easiest mobo i have EVER had the pleasure of working with! :)
  • Cons: None so far..came in with a dent in the box and 1 of the audio pins bent a lil bit, but carefully bent it back into place.

Fantastic Board!!!

Craig S., Newegg
6 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased from a competitor for pricing and shipping reasons, but always use Newegg when I can.
  • Pros: Tons of fan headers, PWM on many of them. Great BIOS. Easily overclocks my 955BE to 4.2gig. Love the way this board is laid out. Rock solid performance thus far. Boots quickly. No BSODs thus far. Awesome fan tuning features provided PWM fans are used where possible. My machine is dead silent unle...
  • Cons: Absolutely none thus far.
