Beware IR receiver users. Does not properly power USB devices while in sleep. EDIT: Might have been power supply

Summary: This motherboard will not correctly power your USB devices while in sleep, including low power devices such as a USB IR receiver. I know this because my receiver will not show a red light when I press the power button on my remote while the computer is in S3 sleep. If I plug the receiver into a dumb cell phone charger, the red light will display. It works normally while the computer is on, and the USB hub reports that it only draws 100mA of current.
Summary: I installed an Intel Core i5-4570S Haswell 2.9GHz on this Asrock B85M-Itx - LGA1150 motherboard with 4g of memory. The computer has an intake case fan operating at very low fan speed of 490. The cpu fan is running around 1100. The computer is very quiet even when streaming a HD movie. The install of the motherboard and of windows 8 were very straight forward as I did not encounter any problems.
If you are not too fuss on Bluetooth, WiFi and Overclock

Summary: Not the best motherboard out there but definitely worth the price. I have used this MB with an Haswell i3 for a gaming PC on a bit of a budget for a family member and despite not being in par with higher model (as you would expect) it does the job and so far I have never heard any complain of the computer crashing or being unstable. If you are not too fuss on Bluetooth, WiFi and Overclock then this MB would be a good option.
Great features, just the PCI/PCIe slots are too close.

Summary: If it wasn't for the position of the PCI and PCIe slots, I would give that medium class motherboard 5 stars, it's functional, it has a lot of useful remote access features, USB3 headers and ports, it's just.... practical.
Summary: I received the product promptly and it looks like it has very good quality but it doesn't suit me so I am going to send it back (and the company doesn't cover the return postage). However do notice that it is a mATX mobo rather than the mITX version of it showed in the pictures (it is a B85 mATX), so i can't use it but to help it back.
Summary: Great little motherboard, packed with lots of features for such a small size. New generation means loads of USB3 and SATA3 (6Gb/s) connectors/ PErfect for my Mini-ITX gaming PC. WIth ASRock's new bios update I managed to easily get a stable 4.2Ghz OC with my i5 4760k! Really like it, only slight dissapointment was only having one fan power connecter, the other had to use a molex from the PSU, not really a big deal.
Summary: Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Mainboard. Betreibe es zusammen mit dem Intel Core i5 4460. Der PC fährt sehr schnell hoch, was als erstes auffällt im Vergleich zu anderen Mainboards. Für meine Bedürfnisse hat es ausreichend Steckplätze und Anschlüsse. Ich kann es jedem empfehlen, der ein günstiges Mainboard sucht, das alles mitbringt.
Summary: Läuft in meinem Spielerechner mit einem Xeon 1231, einer AMD R9 285 und 8GB tadellos. Da es nicht in der Beschreibung steht, zwei Sata 6GB/s Kabel liegen bei, sollte bei Mainbords aber Standard sein.
Summary: Zuverlässiges Board, läuft bei mir mit einem Intel Celeron G1840 als Office Rechner problemlos. Scheint selbst für Gaming geeignet zu sein, wenn nicht 'Hardcore-Gaming' das Ziel ist. Würde es jederzeit wieder kaufen.
