Don't waste your time or money

Mr. Middle "Put it into Context", Amazon
28 January 2015
  • Summary: Replacing within 2 months. ASRock is the cheap sub division of ASUS and it shows. This has notoriously poor quality such as 100s of complaints of USB 3.0 failing even if you completely remove all drivers of it and re-download right from ASRock. Bought a PCI-E USB 3.0 card because of this and within 2 days the card is gone from Windows like it's not even in the machine. Yet it's powered and works in another machine I have just fine.

Awesome

  • Summary: Awesome motherboard. Not top tier but it gets the job done. Multiple connections and ports to future proof my system and aesthetically pleasing. Board has some flexing but not too much.

GO WITH ANOTHER COMPANY

Jane, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: No one buys MB's unless they work inside their computer. One cannot access the BIOS. Pressing F2 or Delete, as instructed, does nothing. The MB goes straight to the OS. I have always bought from Asus or Gigabyte. Never a problem. Neither of those companies seems to be interested in the mini-ITX format. Well, if my recourse is to use ASRock, I will go back to ATX format. Terrible product.

Great board, no IDE

Roger, Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: Solid motherboard, lots of SATA connections, I'm using this as the base of my HTPC, serving as a media streamer, PLEX server and file server and it never misses a beat. Handles everything I throw at it. I didn't realize the board had no IDE connections, my mistake. Unfortunately this means I have no working DVD drive in the system currently. Just something to be aware of.

DOA

Timmeh, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • Summary: As the only 85X ITX MB I had little choice but to go with this . First the product box seemed to be opened I can't be sure but my other boards came with the boxes wrapped in plastic . Second it was DOA I won't bother RMA since shipping from my end will cost me too much . All in all this is my first negative experience I can only hope it will be the last . So now i wait till i can afford getting another board till then.

Very Good Mobo

screech, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: Very good motherboard. Very easy to work in the bios and instructions were easy to follow. This coming from a relative novice in computer building, only made half a dozen myself. I installed some GSKILL ripjaws 2133MHZ ram, A10 5800K chip and a Radeon 6670 1GB GDDR5 for crossfire, my OS running are a dual boot Win7 and Ubuntu. Really can't fault this board, everything slotted in to place easily and just ran. What more can you ask for.
