Summary: This motherboard has got to be one of the best ones I have ever used. It has plenty of SATA and USB ports, nice BIOS for overclocking, and pretty easy to install. My only problem is with the USB 3.0 controller by Etron. I cannot install the USB 3.0 drivers or else I'll get a BSOD. It only happens with certain USB devices. For me, it happened with my Turtle Beach Ear Force PX21 headphones.
Summary: I had my doubts about ASRock before buying this excellent motherboard. But then again, motherboards are usually a hit and a miss :\. However, I got the good end of the stick! This baby fired right up after me and my friend put everything together. It's working excellent so far.
Summary: I just recently built a new PC using this motherboard, and so far I'm pretty happy with it. I haven't had any problems yet and installation was smooth. The BIOS is easy to navigate (you can use your mouse or keyboard). The motherboard itself is built pretty solid compared to other ones out there. The fact that it supports USB 3.0 makes it more "future proof" than the slower USB 2.0.
Summary: When I purchased this motherboard I didn't know what to expect. I had never heard of the brand and the price seemed to good to be true. I really had low expectations but I was trying to get this new build I was putting together up and running. I was pleasantly surprised by how good this motherboard is.I'm running a core i-5 2500K with 16 Gb of ram with no problems. Unless you are running a multiple GPU set up I highly recommend this board!
Summary: Bought this M/B considering the price and the chip used. I am very disappointed. They say they have fixed the SATA issues, not in the board I received. The User Manual is not very helpful. Be prepared for English language use like, "Please be noted..." and the hard drive must use FAT 32 file system. The UEFI system may need updating, if you have not got another system working you may have problems with update.
Summary: ive brought this MB for my new system build. Intel i7-2600k processor. 2gb HIS ice q xTurbo radeon graphics. 8gb corsair vengeance RAM, NZXT lexa s case, corsair H60 water cooling. im building this in about 2 weeks after time of writing. i will re-write a review when system is built. at the moment though, the board feels solid, and supports everything i need and want from my system. the technology is brilliant in this board.
Summary: Also bei einstecken einer PCIe oder PCI Karten bootet dieses Teil nicht mal. Ich habe eine gesonderte USB 3.0 Karte die ich natürlich auch in dem PCIe betreiben wollte, da mir der verbugte und veraltete Etron USB 3.0 Chip, der in diesem Board verbaut wurde nicht passte. Drei Jahre später, kA aus heiterem Himmel, geht der PC ständig an und wieder aus beim Bootvorgang.
