Summary: I have used ASRock motherboards in the past, and they have always worked very well. I needed to replace a micro-ATX motherboard that had fried. So, I decided to go with this ASRock board. Installation was easy. The utilities on the CD installed correctly after installing Windows 7 (I won't touch Windows 8, at this point). I've experienced many motherboard utilities that just won't run properly. So, having everything install correctly is very pleasing.
Summary: I purchased the ASRock LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard for my budget build. This MB is cheap with only 2 DIMM slots so buy your RAM accordingly to allow for future upgrades. There is one PCI express slot and one PCI slot. Another PCI express slot would be more convenient, but not a big deal for me. I would like to find a good wireless n card, but the good ones use PCI express. My USB wireless adapter works just fine for me.
Summary: This board is a good choice for those with typical computing requirements. Paired with a decent Ivy Bridge processor, it has everything you are likely to need for browsing, YouTube, graphics/video processing, and even moderate gaming. My configuration: * Core i3-3225 * Team Vulcan 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 4GBx2 * Adata 64GB SSD * WD Blue 1TB * Kubuntu 13.04 In the box: * Mainboard * I/O shield * Manual * Two sata cables Board layout/install Everything is standard and sensible...
Summary: I used this motherboard along with an Ivy-Bridge based Celeron G1610 for my Windows Home Server 2011. I've bought an IBM M1015 board, flashed it to IT mode and now I have a total of 12 SATA ports (8+4). It works fine in the PCIe 3.0 x16 port. Boots up very fast and works great with an SSD. My only 3 wishes for this motherboard: wish it had an Intel NIC vs Realtek, a PCIe x1 port instead of PCI and 4 DIMM slots instead of 2.
Summary: Nothing much to say really, other than it's a solid board and comes with neat features for the price. I just needed a cheap motherboard that works and ASRock has come a long way now that they actually make solid motherboards. However, I still have one little issue, which is the 24 pin connector. I should have inspected the mobo thoroughly but it was too late when I bought it.
Pros: - Solid construction, - Stable, - Has USB 3.0
Summary: I bought this motherboard to use in a cheapo gaming pc. This was also my first ever pc build. After about a month of research I decided on this board because there seemed to be very few DOA's in the reviews, and because it was only $54.99. Here are the other components that I used: Antec vp450 power supply. G.
Summary: Got this board for great price from amazon warehouse Well built uefi bios, 4 3.0 usb ports,Variety of display ports, Asrock Good Quality, defeintely something that will last for years & give you good performances. Cons - *No PCI express which in the future is going to be the standard for every add on card & this board came out in the recent year knowing that.
Summary: This board is unbeatable for the price. Expandability is a bit limited with only one PCIe 16x port but it's PCIe 3.0!... And you do get a 1x slot also. With SATA3 and USB3 plus USB3 headers for front panel connections is unheard of for a board at this price. If you're building an everyday use desktop or and HTPC this is the best bang for the buck!
