  • 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.

Just buy the ROG Board

John F., Newegg
20 March 2013
  • Summary: look elsewhere or dont spend so much TL;DR board is cheap so buy something else
  • Pros: -Very easy to use bios -fan controller is practical but Asus has better -it looks cool... SEE CONS!!
  • Cons: for $200 i thought i was buying a solid board from a solid brand. all Asrock did was through Fatal1ty's name on the board with some fancy heatsinks. this is just a pretty Extreme 6. save another $50 and just buy the rampage IV. better software and higher quality parts. i installed my cpu flawless...

  • Summary: Awesome board, Fix the audio ports on Motherboard. they suck. Also tone down on the clutter on the board. hard to make aftermarket parts fit i
  • Pros: Board has everything you could think of (Usb 2.0 , Usb 3.0 , Esata, SLI Ready , Crossfire Ready, Extra USB 3.0 connection). Over all the board is awesome!
  • Cons: AUDIO PORTS SUCK BADLY! I can't get voice to come in clear when connected through the mic in or line in ports. I need to invest into a audio card! Around Processor there is to much going on. can't chose from many heatsink since the area is tightly packed with stuff.

Buy it for 6 SATA ports, not 10

  • Pros: VT-d support
  • Cons: ASM1062 controller is awful. The A1,A2,A3,A4 ports use a pair of ASM1062 controllers. I had a difficult time trying to get it to pick up an attached drive on A4. Ultimately I'll be picking up some new hardware to support my ZFS setup.

Overall Good - Network Misleading

  • Summary: I personally like the Z68 Gen3 Professional (N82E16813157263), but it was out of stock when I purchased this. I would recommend that motherboard over this one.
  • Pros: Asrock's fatal1ty series are always nice, I've always liked them. Plenty of USB 3, SATA 3, PCIe Slots, CPU and memory support.
  • Cons: The dual gigabit ethernet ports are advertised by Asrock to support teaming. According to broadcom, this particular chipset does not. Teaming was a big reason I got this motherboard. I'll have to buy a pair of intel adapters seperately. Other Asrock Fatal1ty motherboards included network chips by...

Great Board!

  • Summary: After assembling my entire system, Dr Debug spit out the error "55" which said in the book "Memory undetected". I didn't get video. I ended up having to track down one of my friends with some DDR 3 ram that worked off the bat, just to update the boards BIOS to HOPE that it would then recognize my...
  • Pros: (6) SATA III ports, (4) SATA II ports, (1) IDE port, Dr. Debug (quick troubleshooting), plenty of USB 3 ports, Clear CMOS button on the I/O panel, TONS of features!
  • Cons: Needed to update the BIOS to the latest version to get my G.SKILL Trident X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C7Q-32GTX to work. :-( This isn't Neweggs fault but since they suggested G.SKILL memory in 2GB and 4GB sticks, I thought the 8GB s...

  • Summary: I have bought a lot of electronics over the years and every brand you could possibly name has had some products go bad. All it takes is a single component to fail. I once sent in a satellite receiver that died for repair and it turned out that all it needed was to replace a $2 diode.
  • Pros: I bought 2 of these and one of them went dead after a month and a half. I decided to buy another board and keep the replacement for a spare. I liked that when I called tech support I was speaking to someone in California and not in India. They approved my RMA under warranty the same day they rece...
  • Cons: I did have to pay $15 shipping and their tech support is not a toll free number. Probably most manufacturers make you pay to ship the product back but I felt that since I only had it about 6 weeks when it crashed they should have covered the shipping.

  • Summary: Has been a great motherboard. I've waited to get the system fully shaken down and stress tested over the past month before writing a review. Very stable, intuitive BIOS and overclock controls.
  • Pros: Good documentation, great memory throughput, excellent onboard sound.
  • Cons: Space for larger coolers can get a bit tight.

  • Summary: If I was rating only on the performance of this board I would give it 5 eggs. I dropped it to 4 mainly for all the aggravation caused by the position of the SATA ports. Why they couldn't have had them face up instead of sideways like every other board I ever had is a mystery to me!
  • Pros: Lots of SATA ports. This is the main reason I bought this board since I have 8 data disks. I bought 2 of these for both my desktops. After some initial problems both have preformed flawlessly except for some minor problems I will cover in the cons. I have run these machines constantly for the las...
  • Cons: If you are installing this in a mid sized tower the SATA ports are a nightmare to get to. When my son and I were having problems we suspected that one of the connectors might be loose and we had to pull the board back out to fix it. Before installing in the 2nd machine I cut a large access hole i...
