Summary: Easy build with no mechanical, electrical or software issues. Motherboard HDMI output failed after hotplugging HDMI but motherboard replaced in short order by Amazon. New board working fine but I no longer hot swap HDMI plugs. Included manual describes all header pinouts, making it easy to repin the Inteset CIR for use with the Asrock CIR header. CIR makes it possible to hibernate and wake using our Harmony One remote. Really appreciate the fan tuning options.
Summary: I've always used Asus or Evga boards for my builds, so i was a little skeptical, but needed to budget out the board to afford the rest of the components. So far, it's a surprisingly good board, has everything i need (and dont need). Love the layout and feel of the bios, fits 4 sticks of ram, and only gets around 21 degrees with a stock cooled i7 2600k and evga gtx570 ssc.
Summary: Works great and easily installed. A great board to do a simple upgrade with. I have no complaints yet. I have only had this board installed for 2 weeks. The only thing that would make it better is a more intuitive manual. I know my way around a PC so the manual did not cause me a problem.
Summary: This board is a great value! It includes USB 3.0, SATA3, HDMI, S/PDIF Optical out and 4 RAM slots, all in a Micro ATX form factor. I wanted all of those things for my new i3 HTPC setup, and this board delivered. There were not many other Micro ATX boards that included all of these features, and this may have been the only one in this price range.
