Summary: After extensive testing, motherboard turns out to be defective. This ASRock motherboard model has a high defective rate. Just google around and you'll fiund tons of users reporting problems with this specific motherboard. My advice would be stay away from ASRock.
First one came damaged, still waiting for the second.

Summary: Well i was really exited about my new PC, building it up from the very bottom and when i saw this MOBO i fell in love... The right price, the right specifications, etc. Anyway, got it and started building my pc but no video was shown, tried with a different video card that i know works and it's compatible, nothing happens, tought it was the ram and took it out, did the same with the hard drive (everything new), no video and no "beeps" were heard from the MOBO, then...
Summary: I installed this board and inserted my newly bought DDR3 ram along with the CPU and all the other goodies. It booted up fine, BIOS was working great, so I proceeded to install Windows 7 Professional. Anywhere from original unpacking of the windows 7 data to the beginning of the windows install, I would get a BSOD. I thought it might have been my hard drive or possibly the RAM was malfunctioning, so I decided to check the RAM out. I ran Memtest86 to check the RAM.
Summary: Für dieses Mainboard fällt mir nur ein Wort ein, Scheiße. Habe mir ein Gigabyte Board gekauft, alles eingebaut und es hat funktioniert. Mit dem Board war es auch für einen Techniker unmöglich, es zum laufen zu bringen. AsRock kommt mir sicher nie wieder zwischen die Finger. Einen Stern mußte ich geben, sonst kann man die Rezension nicht veröffentlichen. Das Produkt erhält von mir 0 Sterne!
