Summary: Bought this MB to replace one that went t*ts up on me. Works fine but I did/do have a couple of issues. After installing the OS on a SATA drive plugged into SATA port 0 it lost the drive after I unplugged the system to install a WiFi card. Moved the drive to SATA port 1 and good to go. Next time I unplugged the system to install a video card I had to go back to SATA port 0. The other issue is the USB ports are on even after shutting down the system.
Summary: Budget motherboard. Not the cheapest and not the greatest. Will fill your expectations and you won't regret buying this motherboard. Would recommend to all my friends. Here's my build MSI Radeon HD 7770 Intel pentium g2120 Dual-Core Processor 3.1 GHZ 3 MB Cache LGA 1155 This motherboard of course >.
Summary: Good motherboard for the price. One drawback is that it supports SATA2 - *NOT* SATA3. So any SATA3 hard drives you buy will not run at full speed. Also doesn't have onboard RAID whereas other similarly priced boards do. The included software is quite good and auto-overclocking and fan control are very easy to use and run stable.
Summary: I love this motherboard. Runs my i5-2500 perfectly with a large hyper evo 212 cooler and a massive msi gtx 560ti which is larger than the entire board. I fried my msi mobo that was very expensive and could not afford to replace it with one of equal quality so I went with the cheapest. Next day shipping and I was up and running within 24 hours.
Summary: This is this specific motherboards (H61M-DGS) web page: http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/H61M-DGS/ I purchased 4 of these to be used as overclocking motherboards as part of a render farm with Intel i7-3770k series cpu's. The website for "this specific motherboard" discusses overclocking; use the link above and see for yourself. It uses the word "overclock" more than once. The retail box comes with a cd of drivers INCLUDING overclocking software.
Summary: This is exactly what I wanted for my budget pc build! But don't let the word budget deceive you, this isn't a cheaply made motherboard. For what I got, I would have paid more than just $44.99 hands down. This is perfect for someone who wants an i3,i5,or i7 processor, and ONE PCI graphics card. The 2 slots of RAM is perfect for me, because I only wanted 8GB of RAM. However, it does support up to 32GB.
