Excellent overall, just a few complaints

  • Summary: It's worked reliably for 3 years now, which is more than I can say for most mobos I've owned.
  • Pros: Pretty fancy BIOS (includes web update feature) Lots of ports
  • Cons: No support for WOL Driver CD comes with a lot of unnecessary software

Drivers from Hell...

John B., Newegg
19 April 2014
  • Summary: When they work, which is most of the time, they work great. When they don't, a lot of soul searching about whether or not going with ASRock was a good idea. It wasn't & I'm looking for three replacement motherboards; motherboards without Etron chips.
  • Pros: Lotta SATA ports, Raid 5
  • Cons: Drivers from Hell... The Raid software that came with the motherboard was the wrong version, but a search of the Intel web site found the correct version. At least that was immediately obvious as it flat didn't work. I've built three computers with these, one for me & one for each of my sons. All...

Good product.

  • Summary: This mobo is very good, but its price is not so good, you can get another mobo with the same price with more features, so keep that in mind if you're planing to get it.

After a few months of use...

Wayne C., Newegg
30 November 2013
  • Summary: After my first review, you can see the response to contact them if I had any issues. Well, about a week after that, I tried. My emails might as well have been sent underground, for all the good they did.
  • Pros: I wrote a review below, a few months ago. This one takes place after using it for a while. IDE and RAID work just jim-dandy fine. Network ports, USB, all seem functional. No CPU (i5-3570) or RAM issues - after BIOS flash, of course. We won't go there. Plenty of expandability - and I've loaded min...
  • Cons: I'm about sick of this thing. As stated previously, who needs 20 USB ports? And the BIOS flashing nuisance. But there are other port issues. The back-panel port cluster is too far back on the board. All rear ports are too far in for some of them to connect with. Namely, the eSATA port is unusable...

  • Summary: Hit or miss on these ASUS and Gigabyte seem to be bullet proof.
  • Pros: Great when they work, purchased these boards for the sata connectors.

Killing my CPU

James F., Newegg
10 September 2013
  • Pros: The LED display for Bios codes is awesome.
  • Cons: Seems to kill my CPUs, on the third CPU, system worked for 3 months, turned it off one night and then no video and 00 code on the board. Replaced CPU system worked great, this time lasted only 2 months and did same thing. Reached out ASROck tech support and they were no help.

ASRock is quality

Ronald B., Newegg
6 August 2013
  • Summary: The board is everything you would expect from a higher end MB. I recommend this board because of the simplicity and functionality. My Computer: ASRock Z77 Fatal1y pro Intel i7-2700K @ 4.8 16 GB G-skill 1600 Corsair 700w PSU GTX 570
  • Pros: Very Overclocking friendly, board fits well inside case, Good overall quality
  • Cons: The CMOS reset button is directly below the USB 2.0 port, and it is really easy to press accidentally. If this happens you will have to redirect the boot sequence

Good, but...odd.

Wayne C., Newegg
18 July 2013
  • Summary: Quality control is a thing of the past, folks. You've been warned. Minus 2 eggs: one for the incompatibility issues and nuisance of having to flash BIOS just to get it to work, and one for the idiocy of the USB overkill.
  • Pros: More than enough expandability for anyone. Plenty of ports, drives, the whole bit. Gorgeous appearance, beautiful BIOS utility. Never seen UEFI BIOS before. Lots of eye-candy for those that like to show off the appearance. Was a gift from my nephew for my birthday. Sweet board, overall. I won't g...
  • Cons: Who in the world needs 20 USB ports? Seriously, way too much overkill on the USBs, and its using up IRQs that could be used for something else. That's always been a nuisance to me. And with a board this loaded, why not 1394-B ports as well? Requires BIOS flash to do anything worthwhile. Out of th...
