  • Pros: Works.
  • Cons: Do not plan on any overclocking on this board with anything past a FX-6300. I can't get my FX-8320 stable at all after stock speeds. The manufacturer should mention the limits of this board as I don't think it could even handle a FX-8350 and up.

Great board that drove me to buy another one.

  • Pros: I already have bought this board awhile ago and ASRock has won my loyalty that I decided to get another one for the home office photo editing. The difference of my build this time is I invested two Samsung Evo 850s in my RAID Mirror and lots of RAM. Launching the Photoshop relatively takes no tim...
  • Cons: Should have come with some ASRock decal so I can stick to my windshield like Apple does!

Good board.

Kevin R., Newegg
28 February 2015
  • Summary: I can't complain too much on a sub $100 board, but dang this thing piss3d me off. Also thought the board was DOA, never plugged in power for the CPU. Felt like an idiot when it was pointed out to me.
  • Pros: It worked first time.
  • Cons: RAM is stupid hard to install, you have to press down hard enough to almost break the board to get it in the slot, not like you drop it in and lock it. The back plate refused to go on and there was no help in the instructions, its held on with electrical tape inside the case. Doesn't line up well...

Rock solid, nice board for the price.

William L., Newegg
5 February 2015
  • Pros: The board does well deserve 5 eggs for price and quality. It take my FX8350 right out of the box. UEFI is user friendly and the default settings are pretty much what I expected to have balance performance. Was confused about some setting in SB950 RAID so I emailed ASRock Support. They gave me a s...
  • Cons: It doesn't smell like roses!

  • Pros: -Seems to be a very decent Motherboard.
  • Cons: -DOA on arrival, fans worked but nothing on screen. I've searched on the internet for answers, checked connections everything. But it was only the motherboard.

Works fine, some annoyances.

Jason S., Newegg
22 December 2014
  • Summary: I'm not an "extreme" overclocker. I installed 1866 RAM and boosted the base CPU clock up 5 MHz. Everything runs cool and rock solid with an FX-8320, Hyper 212 Plus cooler and G.Skill memory. The XFast LAN software is nice. I haven't tried the USB or RAM software.
  • Pros: - Inexpensive (when I bought it) -- praying I get the $35 rebate. - Attractive and comprehensive BIOS config interface. - Rock-solid performance.
  • Cons: - XFast advertising is potentially misleading... it's just software. - Some components (SATA ports, chipset heatsinks) seem a little loose on the motherboard. - Can't figure out how to get the keyboard backlight to turn off on Sleep. - Can't figure out how to get a BIOS POST screen/logo on startu...

I had the previous gen of this mobo

Timothy J., Newegg
18 December 2014
  • Summary: get a mobo with a 3+ year warranty - I won't ever trust another mobo manufacturer with a 1 yr warrant.
  • Pros: It was cheap it worked well initially I think I got it as part of a bundle deal off of new egg - not sure about that though
  • Cons: cheap - lol - for an extra $10 you could get an ASUS or another competitors board with a 3 year warranty vs. this one's 1 year warranty. And wouldn't you know it - the mobo worked for 12 or 13 months - then I started to have really weird lag / CPU issues - I'd run WOW on ultra and the CPU would b...

  • Summary: great motherboard. I use it for my gaming desktop and get up to 350 fps with it. It works very well on games from steam like Dots 2 and can run games like it on the highest settings with no lag.
