$230 Mobo Came Broken

Jake I., Newegg

  • Summary: Going to return it once I get it RMA'd.
  • Pros: Solid Capacitors - Japanese Gold Plated Good solid power for OCing Overall well designed FULL board with rare Floppy/IDE Ports
  • Cons: Came broken with parts missing. Had pink goo on the bottom. HORRIBLE customer service making me pay $20 shipping for an RMA for a $230 motherboard. Would not buy from ASRock again nor will I recommend it.

Ethernet controller failed.

Michael K., Newegg
4 August 2012
  • Pros: Tons of ports and onboard functions Great build quality CMOS reset button is helpful
  • Cons: Ethernet card failed after less than 90 days of use!!! For a $230 board that is really a disappointment. Now I'm faced with the aggravation of removing the board and sending it in for a replacement (what am supposed to do without a computer that time??) or just leaving the ports busted and buying...

Mo' Connectors, Mo' Problems.

john g., Newegg
24 May 2012
  • Summary: Asrock's included software isn't very good. Though I don't think anyone believes these motherboard companies software claims anyways!
  • Pros: All the Bells and Whistles you could ever want. If Red and Black are your color scheme, this is your board.
  • Cons: eSATA didn't work. Tried with 3 cables and 2 different enclosures. Never recognized a one. USB 3.0 only worked as USB 2.0. 27 mb tops. Used both drivers available and tried two different usb 3.0 sticks. Tech support is email ONLY and basically did this: Did you try the latest drivers? Yes? Return...

Not a Good Beginning!

Anonymous, Newegg
6 May 2012
  • Summary: Fatal1ty's Face on the monitor during every boot up is a total turn-off. Enough with this guy!
  • Pros: Great construction and quality parts. Wanted a new board to replace my P67 Extreme6 but with more USB3 ports and the ability to upgrade my CPU later. I needed a board that also had a PS2 port for my old IBM keyboard. This board ticked all the boxes for me.
  • Cons: Not able to get board to recognize more than two-4Gb sticks of my 16Gb-Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GXM2A1600C9 RAM that I pulled from my working P67 Extreme6 board. All 4 sticks worked as a single or in pairs in any slots but never more than two. I could find no way in BIOS to turn on XMP, as it was no...

  • Summary: I followed every safety procedure while installing the motherboard using exact instructions from the manual. I used an anti static mat to prevent static damage and had the power suply unplugged but the pc will not turn on.
