Summary: Very functional BIOS right out of the box. Not much to say other than that. No DVI, no USB 3.0, and only 2 PCI-e ports (just enough for wifi + video card) are slight bummers. But you read the specs yourself, you don't need me to tell you that. Besides, you're probably using this for a budget build anyway.
Summary: I purchased this board with an Ivy Bridge processor; however the system failed to POST after install. After troubleshooting and investigation via Google, I contacted ASRock customer support. They informed me that the board requires a BIOS update to POST with an Ivy Bridge processor. However, since the system doesn't POST, they would have to physically mail me a replacement BIOS chip. Awesome. Three weeks have passed with no BIOS chip, so this one is going back to Amazon.
Summary: i thought it was what i wanted..i intended to build a small ht pc with a shoebox case..those that take atx power supplies-about £30..after i bought this board i was given a itx board and case..had i waited-i wouldn't have spent money on this but i made a gift of it to a friend who's delighted with it...and it was only £28 so no complaints..he says it works fine and hes a gamer/overclocker..
Summary: Arrived on time,the mother board is top quality and is very easy to put togeather with other computer parts,will order again and will tell my friends about this,many thanks for the very good service.
Summary: This is a good motherboard for the price and I love the utilities you can download for it, would definitely recommend for a small pc build and I play allot of games, shame it only has 4 SATA slots though.
Affordable, SATA is slow, but good. (HACKINTOSHABLE)

Summary: This board is good if you're looking for a budget hackintosh. The motherboard doesn't offer much in the way of features, but why should it? You are getting a great little ITX (smaller than ITX actually) board with a PCI-express x16 slot for a graphics card, and even an x1 slot. I paired this with an Intel Celeron G1620 for a small, quiet and low power server and I am impressed with its performance. My only pet hate about it is that the IO is painfully slow.
Summary: It's a fairly basic board, not too many thrills other than the fact it has USB3, but for the price it is great. Have been running with a Xeon E31240V2 for a few days, and hasn't had any problems so far.
