Asrock Support Terrible

Richard S., Newegg
23 October 2015
  • Summary: If there was a way to give 0 eggs I would. This really doesn't surprise me since most system board manufacturers give lousy tech support.
  • Pros: Cheap board, reasonably stable.
  • Cons: I have an event 51 on w2k when ever a hard drive is changed. I put in a ticket with detailed information on 10-16-15. As of one week later on 10-23-15, no response yet. I bought 6 of these boards and all have the problem. It seems problem is both hardware and software related. I thought I would g...

Glad it's here but I wouldn't buy it again

eddie j., Newegg
1 October 2015
  • Summary: In the last month, I have built 2 cheap computers. One used a 1155 socket and this one uses the 775 socket. In the end, both cost about the same. Bad news is 775 is more trouble than it's worth. Save yourself some time and a headache, use the newer socket.
  • Pros: - It works - One of last 775 Boards on Newegg
  • Cons: - Expensive - Features are average - Had to update BIOS - Spent several hours configuring

  • Summary: Its nice to know these are still out there not everyone is wanting a I 3 or I 5 just yet.... Still good performance out of the older socket 775 for lite gaming and web and email...
  • Pros: Good board so far from yesterdays high Tech.. I was able to put a dual core and 4 gigs ram and a Old 5870 gpu card in the system all is well so far .. Thanks Newegg and Asrock.
  • Cons: The only con I can see is if you have a big graphics card it will block your sata ports work around for this but not all ports is a buy right angled sata cables.

good budget motherboard

Andrew D., Newegg
14 July 2015
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a bad OEM board for a relative of mine. I simply wanted something high on the value scale without needing terrific performance. This board did the job fine, still running after about 3 years now.
  • Pros: Decent performance Everything included as advertised Still working after 3+ years
  • Cons: Seems to have a bad reputation, I can't comment on that myself

  • Pros: I still need to install this MB into my system but I wanted to say something very positive about it now. I ordered this board about 6:20 am on 5/03/2015 and today being 5/09/2015 it was delivered. I chose the option to not pay for delivery and received exceptional service. I've been buying from N...

DOA

Tri L., Newegg
5 May 2015
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Came very cheap and packaging of the item made it seemed like it was a returned item. Didn't have the luck the others had with a working board but instead received a dead one. Very expensive for this old board and the company seemed to be taking advantage of people trying to fix their old gen com...

Failed after six months

Mark W., Newegg
10 April 2015
  • Summary: This was installed for a client who couldn't afford to replace his older computer after the original mobo failed. He is not going to be happy, and I can't blame him. Neither am I.
  • Pros: Worked as advertised until it failed almost six months to the day after purchase.
  • Cons: Catastrophic failure after six months of service. At least one capacitor showing signs of swelling.

Retraction of earlier comment.

David C., Newegg
21 February 2015
  • Summary: That bad memory chip drove me crazy, since I thought all were good. I was going to return, but will now keep board.
  • Pros: Good board so far. Lots of features. Running Intel core 2 Quad Q9550 chip. Had bad memory modular plugged in, which gave a failure to post. Changed memory and all is well. I'll see how this board does long term.
  • Cons: None so far. Just make sure any older parts you use are good.
