  • Summary: Solid board and no complaints. Bought this for an AMD build and it is a well built board. Booted up on the first go and to date has been running like a champ.

Good Motherboard, not great

Will C., Newegg
20 March 2015
  • Pros: Pros: This motherboard, for the price, is amazing. It has had no problems until after the 1 year of use mark
  • Cons: Cons: This motherboard lasted about a year for me. Recently, I've had to replace my BIOS battery a second time. In a 1 year period you shouldn't have to change it once. My friend had had computers for over 10 years, and he hasn't had to change any BIOS battery ONCE. This motherboard is also a sus...

Great Motherboard!

Phyllis M., Newegg
22 February 2015
  • Summary: Get this motherboard. It's very worth it. Even though some may not trust ASRock, it's more reliable than my previous ASUS. Trust me, this is fantastic.
  • Pros: Very fast boot-time. It's practically perfect.
  • Cons: First starting the motherboard in my new build it went into BIOS "VERY" slowly but recovered and started perfectly after. SATA port placement is weird.

Worked for a while

Alexander V., Newegg

  • Summary: i wouldnt pay more than 90 for this motherboard. good thing i didn't.
  • Pros: The motherboard was cheap when i got it. i bought it for $85.00 which was a good deal. It has 4 fan headers and 2 cpu fan headers which is more than most AM3+ mobos. but now getting into the cons because this past year and half with this mobo is scary.
  • Cons: The motherboard first month i used it had failing usb ports. Which didn't either fully power peripherals or didnt even work. so i have 2 broken usb ports and the rest are really weak its unable to power for example a USB wireless adapter and charged any phone really slowly. I did contact Asrock. ...

  • Pros: Stable. Fast. No issues at all. I ran with a 6-core 3.5 cpu and the board has treated me very well. Easy to setup and use. I have had it for a year now. I just bought another and hope to enjoy the same benefits as the first one.
  • Cons: None after a year of use.

weak mosfets

Galen B., Newegg
22 December 2014
  • Summary: I installed a water cooler to replace my 8350 stock cooler (which was louder than all my case fans.) did well for a couple of days until one day i smelled something burning. My computer died shortly after. tried a reboot just to see something flair out in my case.
  • Pros: did quite well for the price, what time i had it.
  • Cons: was clearly meant to have air blown directly on the vrm heat sink from stock air cooler.

  • Pros: Looks to have all the best features of other motherboards but do not be fooled! Good features are great when they work, and they do not work on this motherboard
  • Cons: I am honestly very surprised New Egg still sells this junk! This motherboard did not work right from the first day, it took me until now to finally pin point the source of all my problems. I should have returned this thing as soon as I got it. My system is was unstable with this board, exhibited ...

Solid, would give 3.5 eggs if i could

Christopher H., Newegg
11 December 2014
  • Summary: Overall I am pleased with this purchase, but my confidence is pretty grim. This board is VERY unpredictable, and by reading the reviews it really is just chance that you get a good one (like myself).
  • Pros: -Great look in my opinion -sli compatibility -easy and user-friendly bios -no MAJOR problems -990fx chipset -have had it for almost a year now, not dead yet lol (reading the reviews kinda freaks me out though)
  • Cons: -had some problems early on figuring out the wifi..tried EVERYTHING didnt work at all. eventually i just decided to use an ethernet connection, problem solved -not sure if this in normal for boards, but they decided to put the CPU plug all the way in the top left so if you cant reach your cords b...

JUSTIN M., Newegg
3 December 2014
  • Summary: Had high hopes for this board. When I got it I was happy thinking I would be getting a board that would be a decent upgrade platform. Had performance issues from the day I "upgraded" to it. Everything about it looked right.
  • Pros: Big board with lots of options Decent UEFI BIOS
  • Cons: High Price for such low quality Constant CPU throttling at stock speed makes many games unplayable Very choppy gaming from the day I bought it. Was misled when ASRock said this board supports the FX8350 processor then they take it off the list (I always wondered why I was getting such poor perfor...
