  • Summary: Got this motherboard refurbished for $60 and it works exellent for a mining rig board since it has 3 PCI-E 16x slots on it. Also have a Sempron 145 chip on it.

  • Pros: Really, I have no idea but it's been working for over a year now with no problems and I felt like it would be a shame if I didn't leave a review saying so.
  • Cons: .

Not real happy

Philip B., Newegg
11 August 2011
  • Summary: This board is huge. I won't list that as a con, but it sure is big. Like an old 286 board in an AT. I'm not happy that a board of this price/featureset, has no support for the flagship processor of its day. I'm having stability issues with this, and I don't see a light at the end of the tunnel.
  • Pros: Chipset, board layout, expansion, throughput. Bios is nice, just doesn't support my chip.
  • Cons: Have had terrible stability with this board. Just annoying enough that I've not sent it back. No support for the 3.7 Quad Phenom 980 (that I have). 3.6, but no 3.7 Asrock says, and no bios update forthcoming I guess. I'm not sure how everyone else on earth can overclock systems a ghz (or so they ...

Terrible Quality Control.

Christopher K., Newegg
24 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought three of these boards since they are reasonably priced and have their PCI Express slots alternating with the last one 2 slots above the bottom of the board. This allows you to run a Tri-Fire setup on a cheaper 7 slot expansion back panel case as a large dual card won't come in contact with...
  • Pros: Has alternating PCI Express Slots allowing 7 slot back panel expansion Tri-Fire. Has LED error codes to tell you what's wrong.
  • Cons: Bought 3: - 1st DOA - 2nd died within 2 days after plugging in a new power supply. - 3rd probably not far behind. LED Display sits at 00. Not even bios boot. Never capable of posting with all three PCI Express slots filled. BIOS has yet to be updated by ASRock.

Limited Support. Would not buy another one

Rajeev S., Newegg

  • Summary: BIG Caution, you may get hosed on some other feature by next year, as newer peripherals come out. I think saving about 20 bucks is going to cost me a whole new board, if I stay with 3.0 tb drives, that i got here last week.
  • Pros: On par with other board options. My review is for 890GX Extreme 3. Reason to post on Extreme 4 review is to make buyers like me aware that support for Asrock boards can set you back within a year.
  • Cons: Extreme 3 has USB 3.0, Sata 6 and all the bells and whistles, not a cheap board. BUT have not had BIOS update since Oct 2010. I cannot use 3TB drives on Windows 7 as BIOS does not support UEFI. Calling support (Mr Pablo. suggests, I return the board to the vendor :-) How should i do that, I didnt...

  • Summary: System Specs: Ubuntu 11.04 64bit on USB thumbdrive 2GB RAM 3x Radeon 6950 OCZ 1250watt PSU
  • Pros: Nice board, overall a good layout and lots of features. Has been solid, though I haven't OC'd.
  • Cons: I purchased this board partly because it had a 1x pcie slot in addition to the three 16/8/4x slots. Apparently the 1x slot and the 3rd 16x slot are shared, so I cannot use an additional device when I have 3 video cards installed. Perhaps this is bad wording in the manual or there is a way around ...

Awesome

  • Summary: First open box and would do it again i think because people return things because it is not what they wanted or put the wrong hardware in and do not know how to troubleshoot it. or maybe no time to mess with it, Well your loss is my gain.
  • Pros: Well I bought this as an open Box item and saved myself almost 70.00. I swear to you when I got this it did not look like it had been touched at all. No problems what so ever. You have to know how to set up the bios and make sure everything is cool before turning on any computer for the first tim...

Garbage

Mike D., Newegg
24 May 2011
  • Summary: I think this product had been opened before I received it, it was missing half of the SATA cables, and one of the molex to SATA power cables. It was also not sealed.
  • Pros: Great Idea, poorly executed.
  • Cons: Manual seems like it was written by a 7 year old. Received post codes that were not in the manual. PCIE clip is annoying and pointless. Would boot, set time and reboot. Then would cycle through several different post codes. Only if I reset the cmos would it allow me to get back into the bios. The...
