ok board

Don R., Newegg
4 April 2010
  • Summary: drivers need some serious re-looking.
  • Pros: nice layout, some expansion available. not bad bios
  • Cons: not all that compatible with 64bit XP. Some drivers will work off the disk (maybe one or two) the rest had to get from windows update. audio drivers even thought they say they are 64bit compatible they are not and I can't find new ones anywhere

1st board had power issues

Eric N., Newegg
24 March 2010
  • Pros: Easy setup under XP. Good power consumption features. Was bought as a replacement board for a dying PC.
  • Cons: 1st board died within the 1st week. Turned off the machine and it would not post. Using 2nd board now for a little over a week and everything is working so far. On board ethernet is only 100Mbps.

Nice but not nice

Rob R., Newegg
26 February 2010
  • Summary: Fortunately we do not use music off CDs anymore.
  • Pros: Nice Clean layout. Easy board to install. Running Win 7 Home. Worth the price
  • Cons: Install CDs do NOT install Win 7 drivers. Must download them from TW and that is SLOW. Altho pictures, manual and doc show a CD1 connection on the motherboard for music off CDs there is none on the motherboard. It appears the motherboard and the driver disks are not matched for compatibility.

My board broke.. And there's no warranty

Dakota B., Newegg
11 December 2009
  • Summary: I wouldn't buy this motherboard again. It's a motherboard that's beyond it's time. Honestly.. no gigabit? Boards have had that for like 7 years now, and this board can't manage it. Plus there's no warranty.
  • Pros: Affordable, decent onboard graphics... uh, can't think of anything else.
  • Cons: Zero Warranty, if it breaks, you've gotta buy a new motherboard. The network port isn't even gigabit. Sound is stereo.. no surround sound at all. Broke after 4 months.

Decent Mobo, but sucks for gaming

Robert S., Newegg
4 September 2009
  • Summary: Like I said not a bad board, but definately not a gaming board. When I initially had the system built for me, wasn't planning on doing any gaming. I knew it wasn't an uber gaming mobo, but I didn't think it would be like it was. Its an age old lesson. Buy more than what you need.
  • Pros: Good board. For all the features you get, the price is very reasonable. Has room for 4 Sata Drives out of the box. Easy to set up, cmos posted w/o a problem. Vista 64 bit works w/o any issues.
  • Cons: I repeat, if you're going to run any kind of high end game, do NOT get this mobo!!! I had this board, and decided to try to run team fortress 2 on it, and it was a snail. My 3Dmark06 scores averaged 6800 with my gtx-260 and phenom 9600 black edition cpu. When I changed to an Asus M3N78-EM board, ...

Mother Asrock N68S

SERVINFOT, MercadoLibre
6 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Buen producto para armar equipos de bajo costo.
  • Pros: Por ser una segunda marca, bastante recomendable. Tiene buena performance y buen soporte online.
  • Cons: Deberia traer dos slot IDE en vez de uno, porque me paso que tuve que hacer una actualizacion y tenia tanto el HDD como el DVDrom con conectores de este tipo y tuve que cambiar la grabadora por una del tipo SATA.
