Was nice while it worked...

Anonymous, Newegg
6 August 2014
  • Pros: It worked well for about 5-6 months. Then, then it started killing RAM sticks. So in normal desktop applications (chrome, word, ect) all was good; however when playing games the PC would crash within 15min. In troubleshooting I switched out the RAM. That worked for about a day then the same would...
  • Cons: Kills RAM, or something along those lines. Caused complete rebuild...

Poor quality control

Jesse R., Newegg
5 November 2013
  • Summary: I have also been unable to install 64-bit Windows 7. Installed from a disc, Windows refuses to select a drive to install to; directly imaged onto a hard-drive, Windows goes through the process of finding drivers during its first-boot process and then gives an irrecoverable error at the end of that...
  • Pros: At the time I purchased it, this motherboard was a good deal as part of an entry-level enthusiast build.
  • Cons: The original board I received from Newegg appeared to have some kind of electrical issue with its B memory channel. No memory placed in the 3rd and 4th slots could be recognized by the machine. The replacement I received from Newegg did not have this issue. This is the second of four AsRock mothe...

Dead after two weeks

Alfred M., Newegg
15 September 2013
  • Summary: The mother board looked good on paper. I still have not been able to find a place to get an rma. I hope the replacement is better than the first board.
  • Pros: Easy to install. Typical build. All started out easy enough.
  • Cons: It took me a while to build this machine. Once I got it all togeather I could not get Windows XP to load on the machine. I finally got windws 7 and that took a while to install. The long and short of it is the machine ran for about two weeks and them died. This is this first machine in over 30 th...

FM2A85X Extreme6 - RAID5 don't work

Mark S., Newegg
5 February 2013
  • Summary: Unless ASRock and find us a solution, this board's going back ASAP.
  • Pros: Nice looking board Lots of USB 3.0 and SATA II Ports Seems well featured Would give a higher rating if the RAID5 worked as expected.
  • Cons: RAID5 does not work as expected. Installation of Windows 7 Pro 64-bit went smoothly by inserting the motherboard CD and supplying the appropriate drivers. Once Windows was installed, everything ran great. We wanted to see how the RAID would perform, so with power off we disconnected one of the ha...

User Review

David H., Newegg
3 February 2013
  • Pros: Good specs, good price.
  • Cons: The NIC on this mobo has been dropping the network and internet connection. I have checked my modem, router, and lan cables and they are all up to date and in proper working order. The only way to get this computer to reestablish a network and internet connection is to reboot the machine. I've up...
