Good motherboard, but some issues for high-end A10

Summary: This motherboard is great. It has all sorts of neat features in the UEFI bios, like updating the firmware from within the UEFI itself, among others (it's my first time buying a motherboard with UEFI and I'm pleasantly surprised). My favorite thing in this motherboard is how FAST it goes through POST. I bought this motherboard alongside the AMD A10 5800k (the highest end APU I can find).
Summary: I bought this to replace a failing Gigabyte board, so I needed something that was mini-ITX and that had an FM1 socket. I wanted the board for a quiet media centre in the lounge, so the chipset being passively cooled is helpful, and I've no interest in overclocking. The board is laid out well, and doesn't get too crowded even in a relatively compact mini-ITX case.
Summary: Had problems with no video output from HDMI (would work sometimes and then not). Turns out the board doesn't like all memory types. The one it didn't work with is Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3/4G. I then tried Corsair memory (2GB modules) of type CMV4GX3M2A1333C9 and no problems so far.
Summary: Einziges manko ist die lüftersteuerung im bios die schlecht einstellbar ist aber sonst ist das board perfekt viele anschlüsse gute performance hammerpreis un was die lüftersteuerung angeht hat asrock im englischen forum schon ein firmware upgrade versprochen kann es jedem empfehlen
