Summary: Installed this for my brother and I have to say its a really nice board. I like the new bios but not as much as Asus. The only thing I would of liked to see them include with the mobo is some Q connectors, for those of you that didn't know ASRock is a spin off of Asus. Nice board overall.
Summary: I got this to go with an AMD A4 3400 APU. This board had everything I needed for a board, it has HDMI and USB 3.0! Installation of this board was easy and it was the perfect size for the MATX supporting case I bought. I used the heat sink and fan that came with the AMD A4 APU and it worked and fit perfectly into the motherboard. The motherboard included 2 SATA3 cables (which was a nice bonus)! It also came with a faceplate.
Summary: I buy 4 of these motherboards with diferent procesors (3870, 3400 and 3500) paired with the new AMD memory running at 1600 MHZ, all of then work with no problems. I really recomend this motherboard. By the way, try to install the sound card 2 times with the disc because for some reason, on windows 7 if you select install all (sound, video, net, utility, etc), the sound card never get installed, i just run the setup again and choose only the sound card for install and it...
Summary: Absolutely Perfect. I picked this up with the AMD A8-3870K APU..and oooooo..let me tell you...So easy to work with, every possible feature enabled in the BIOS makes this an OverClockers Dream Board. The AMD A8-3870K is unlocked and all i had to do was raise the X-Multiplier to 37 and im running smooth as silk @ 3.7 Ghz..ON "AIR".(up from Stock @3.0 Ghz). Have this hooked up thru HDMI port to my 24" LED/LCD and im very,very happy with it.
Summary: Truly Excellent for the money. This board has great features compared to any on the market at a similar price just compare for yourself. Extremely easy to install and setup the Bios. Internal and external connectivity again surpasses boards of a similar price. Highly recommended.
Summary: Lovely little board, simple to fit, easy install of components, installed win xp then upgraded that to win 8, easy as....would recommed to anybody...im not a tech minded person and have built this pc myself for my son, havent built a pc since xp came out but have to say it was easier this time around, even managed to get Minecraft working on it!!! will buy same components again to build a pc for my daughter.
Summary: Having never used an asrock board before never mind an FM1 board this cheap! - i must say i am impressed - does what it says on the tin and everything worked perfectly out of the box (have had to return other makes) been using for a while - no problems no complaints.A GOOD BUY
