amazing vt-d passthrough with IDE and floppy
BASSEM J., Newegg
22 March 2014
Summary: The current generation is using computer as a media streamer or a gaming processor. However, there are tons of intelligent programs written for decades that computer scientist seek to retrieve and execute on current architecture.
Pros: Shame they are not reproducing this board anymore! I was lucky to grab the last two open boxes. Unique board with floppy and IDE connectors for LGA 1155 on which i5 3570k was tested and worked great. The i7 3770 is what I am using for direct vt-d passthrough.
Cons: They won't be producing this anymore. It is just sad. Critics about headers for the floppy and IDE should be avoided, and those who do not like having them, simply do not use them.
Summary: Depending on how they handle this it could be upgraded to more eggs, but as it stands I have a non functioning computer. I would rather not have to take everything back out and return it and wait days to be back up and running.
Pros: Not sure, does not work with the i5 3350p processor I purchased with it.
Cons: The board I received has a bios that is nearly two years old so it does not work with the Ivy Bridge processor I purchased with it. I contacted Asrock but have only received the canned response so far.
Summary: in support of customer service taking 23 days to get an updated (?) bios chip to me; you have to consider the time they had off for the holidays. as a side note, there are cheaper ways to transfer data from your old floppy disks than building a dedicated computer; it just sounded like a good idea on...
Pros: legacy connectors for obsolete floppy drives
Cons: does not support ivy bridge out of the box (55 error code). tried a g860 sandy bridge, got a 45 error code; it too was too new for the bios. customer service agreed to send me a new bios chip with updated bios to fix the problem. got the new chip yesterday; 23 days later; marked as ver 2.20. stil...
Excellent board with a lot of connectivity options
2 January 2014
Summary: I had no problems with getting the board up and running with a Sandy Bridge i5 processor, 8 GB Patriot Gamer memory and an SSD drive. I was looking for a motherboard that provides a lot of different legacy connectors yet is able to run a relatively new line of processors, and this fits the bill...
Summary: customer service has not contacted me, tried to contact tech support again and asked how to upgrade a bios when post fails; what cpu i needed to post so i can upgrade the bios; or how long it normally takes to hear from customer service, and haven't heard back from them either.
Pros: has legacy floppy and ide connections. asrock website lists ivy bridge processors as compatible with motherboard.
Cons: cant use the motherboard. got a 55 error code; swapped out every other component with same result and RMA'd the obviously defective motherboard. replacement has same problem, asrock tech support finally responded that i need to update the bios to use an ivy bridge cpu. they also said customer ser...
Summary: Newegg needs negative egg ratings to proper rate this board.
Pros: Has a PATA port, which I needed
Cons: As other reviewers have mentioned, this board simply won't run Ivy Bridge processors. I didn't properly research this and ordered an I3-3220 processor. The error code on the nice on-board POST display said "no memory". I wasted several days chasing down that incorrect error. :-( After I checked t...
Pros: I have't any pros cause it never worked, I received two of them and neither has worked.
Cons: The first MOBO I received gave me an error 55. My tech tested the memory in a separate system and figured out that the memory was good and then he decided to troubleshoot further, trying the good memory in every slot only to get error 55 every single time he booted up my computer. So after readin...
