:O Awesomness

Brenden M., Newegg
17 June 2012
  • Summary: This board saved my XFX 6870 the other day. some how, i dont know how, a piece of cheese landed on the back side of the card. the board immediatly cut power and saved it. i cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol and the card is perfect. What a surprise win. I will buy ASROCK M.B.
  • Pros: Better than ASUS comparible board, ie north and south bridge. Customer service is also 110% better than ASUS. Its a pretty board for the price.
  • Cons: Had to RMA the first one due to bios issue. 2nd one worked like a charm. *** not con but worth mentioning: C.S. was friendly, helpful and quick.

Great Value

  • Summary: This is a steal at $99.99!
  • Pros: It looks nice. Has every kind of feature you want/need. Amazing bios screen! LCD error screen on mobo is genius. Also has power button and reset physically on the mobo. Not flimsy like some have complained about. I will buy from this brand for now on!
  • Cons: I hate how the SATA connections are laid out, only a one time annoyence though.

Awesome MB

  • Summary: First build so I'm really glad I made such a good choice!
  • Pros: Sweet metalic looking box and it matches the spash screen when it's POSTing. UEFI bios is unbelievable, it even picked up my wireless mouse with no drivers installed! Very well labeled, and the manual is well put together. Power and reset buttons on the board itself!
  • Cons: No onboard USB3 header

Great board with great specs

Don N., Newegg
19 October 2011
  • Summary: XFastLAN just came out from them, and gonna give that a try. Sounds like an interesting concept.
  • Pros: Bought this board for a new budget system build. It performs great and it has all of the newer features out. Its my first Asrock board and I am quite impressed. I previously had Asus and an awesome Gigabyte.
  • Cons: haven't been able to get my G.Skill memory timings/speed set correctly. After it reboots, the Bios doesn't boot up. Just found out a new bios is out for it so I will update that and try again. Also, the XFastUSB utility seemed great at first, and did transfer files faster, but corrupted video fil...

What's not to like?!

Anonymous, Newegg
16 October 2011
  • Summary: I won a free breakfast sandwich from McDonald's monopoly game this morning.
  • Pros: Works great, looks good, debug led, cmos reset right on the back panel (no more opening the case to jump pins or remove a battery). BIOS gui is laid out well and simple to use, especially being point and click. Handles overclocking very well, manually configured, and pre-configured. I have not tr...
  • Cons: Still waiting for a cost effective board to have integrated USB3.0 headers. Not a fan of having a cord stick out the back plugging into one of the only 2 USB3.0 ports just for a 3.0 port on the front. I like my cases looking clean and organized, not like a frankentower.

A beast!

RJ H., Newegg

  • Cons: Doesn't make me coffee in the morning.
