No problems

Kelten P., Newegg
5 July 2015
  • Pros: 3 years later and the motherboard is still going strong. I have had absolutely zero problems with the motherboard itself, and it has performed exactly as advertised.
  • Cons: Nothing, It did everything I expected it to do.

Died after less than 4mos

Mark A., Newegg
2 July 2015
  • Summary: Less than 4 mos after installing this board it is now dead. Tried PSU, Memory, Video Card. Everything I know to troubleshoot after 25yrs as an IT Hardware professional. ASRock does not answer emails even after filling out their page. Will stick to another brand I guess.
  • Pros: Fired right up initially
  • Cons: Died in less than 4 mos w/ only default settings, No OC'ing.

ASRock 990FX AM3+ motherboard

Donald H., Newegg
1 July 2015
  • Summary: I am very happy with this board. The front panel is connected to an adapter card, and the webcam microphone is good enough. For the price the board is a real bargain. The rig: ASRock extreme3 AMD FX6200 16 gb 2x8 Crucial 1866 Corsair 500R case Corsair H105 cooler Corsair 650 W PSU HIS HD 6700 video...
  • Pros: Supports AM3+ 125W processor, 990FX Northbridge, 2 external USB3.0 ports, 6 external USB2 ports, eSATA port, 5 SATA III, PS2 keyboard & mouse ports, 6 external USB2 ports, 3 internal USB2 headers for 6 more USB2 ports, 8 audio channels, 3 PCIe 2.0 x 16 slots, 2 PCI slots, inexpensive.
  • Cons: no on-board USB 3, no firewire, 5.1 sound works OK, but I can't seem to get 7.1 sound. Connecting or disconnecting headset to/from the front panel crashes the system.

Maybe I was lucky, Got a great board unlike some other reviewers

Anonymous, Newegg
23 June 2015
  • Summary: Got this back in March 2012 and used it up until November of this past year (2014). If I can't sell it, I'll turn it into another gaming rig so my main one and the new one can be networked together to play some sweet LAN games.
  • Pros: -Favorite part(& big part of why I bought it) is that it can do 2 PCI Express 2.0 x 16 slots at the full x16 speed. I used these to Crossfire my 2 AMD Radeon HD 6770s together & it made one heck of a gaming rig, taking everything I threw at it & performing marvelously. -SATA ports are SATA III. M...
  • Cons: -UEFI - What the **** is that all about? Gimme the old Basic straight forward info the way the BIOS UI is supposed to. Quit trying to pretty things up in stupid ways. Seeing a lot of MoBo manufacturers going this route. -_- -only 5, instead of 6, SATA ports -....Not really much else comes to mind...

good for the price

Mr. M., Newegg
4 June 2015
  • Summary: As long as you do your research on compatible CPU and RAM, this motherboard works exactly as it should
  • Pros: everything has worked as specified. Minor overclocking on an 8320 with an evo 212 cooler. I have had no issues at all with the motherboard although if I was building now I would go with one that has better 8 core support and more USB 3.0 ports
  • Cons: poor 8 core support

Good motherboard for an FX 8350 and lower

Isaac, Amazon
12 May 2015
  • Summary: Good motherboard for an FX 8350 and lower. Had to learn the hard way that anything higher wouldnt work. Would not power an FX 9590 which requires a 220W motherboard. Excellent motherboard with the right AM3+ CPUs

Died before a year and a half

Dilan G., Newegg
19 April 2015
  • Summary: ASRock support distanced themselves from any and all responsibility of this product's defects. For that reason I'm giving them a poor rating. I know that this is probably just a dud board, but I wouldn't be in this boat if ASRock RMA'd this board when I was having the initial issue.
  • Pros: Worked while it lasted
  • Cons: Random reboots throughout it's life. Changed PSU to try to fix this and it still did it up until it died. ASRock refused to RMA at this issue. Then when I was playing GTA V it completely shutdown, now it's not even performing POST at all (Removing RAM with a speaker plugged in results in no beep ...
