Summary: I have had this for a year without many issues. For the most part I am happy with it. This is the main issue that I have had: It has usb 3.0 in the back, however this is so inconvenient and being in the back interferes with wireless devices plugged into it. It does not have a port for USB 3.0, so you can't have USB 3.0 in the front. You will also have to buy an adapter if your case has usb 3.0.
Summary: When i first boot up everything on this motherboard, i didn't get a feed on my peripherals. There was also no beep to let me know that the system was ok, before handing it over to the OS. Nor is there a light on the mother board. Save your money. Go with something else.
Summary: I built my system around two weeks ago and this was the ONLY component that gave me problems. I was very very close to sending it back but I realized that it was more time/cost-effective to just learn to live with two dead USB2.0 ports on the front chassis. :[ ... lesson learned. My next mobo will be either Asus or Gigabyte.
Pros: Nice UEFI BIOS and useful Dehumidifier option.
Cons: (1) You have ONLY 10 DAYS for the mail-in-rebate, and that's not 10 days to mail it, that's 10 days total in which ASRock has to receive your MIR. So if you plan to use the MIR, make sure you read all the details before purchase. (2) If I plug in the USB2.0 header, it completely refuses to boot! I.e. it only boots if I choose to leave my front chassis USB2.0 ports unplugged. So now I have 2 dead ports on the front of my desktop ...
Summary: It all came the way i was hoping it would. My AMD fx 8150 fit snug, and well. I love the USB 3.0. I've owned it for more than a year, and it;s still going strong for me. I would recommend this to any one looking to build a high end computer.
Summary: The sweet spot of features, cool features and affordability. The feature which convinced me to buy this board is XFast RAM. For a lot of reasons, I'm still using 32-bit Windows on my desktop box, and even though I bought this with 8 gigs of Ram, I knew Windows would only see about 3.5 gigs of it.
