  • Pros: very nice looking mobo
  • Cons: i get the d6 error on my debug led regardless of the video card im running or the configuration i set it up in customer service is pointless, i waited 40 days for them to even ship my bios chip Im not purchasing any asrock products again...

Where to even begin.....

Nathan C., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Summary: Ive been waiting for new bios chips for about a week now. the least they can do is over night them to me. Every day my system is down i lose money...i shipped my fried h100 to corsair and they already shipped one back( 4 days total) while asrock cant even process one order that requires nothing...
  • Pros: slick design, plenty of vga slots.
  • Cons: bought the board and after 10 minutes of running, it fried my liquid cooing system.(corsair h100) killed 2 sticks of ram, and toasted the on-board bios chips. i call costumer support. they said cannot support most of the LGA 2011 sockets such as ivy bridge E, ivy bridge, sandy bridge

TOP BOARD ON MARKET

4121375000316721, Newegg
29 January 2013
  • Summary: First, Newegg needs to stop letting people who didn't buy the product here post their pathetic comments. I have run RAID on Both Controllers, have run Windows 8 from CR. Am running RAID 0 on both right now. Win 7.
  • Pros: REAL SATA 3 CONTROLLERS, this board puts Asus, Gigabyte, MSI to shame in same class and socket. The only board with a Real Sata 3 Marvell controller. The Marvell 9128 is absolute garbage, but Asus still uses it and they know it is. This board will max out a SSD on Native Sata 3, that's the X79 no...
  • Cons: Company, the manual is poor, they don't like emails, poor support, poor driver info. They didn't post that the Beta BIOS has ROM switch, you can run RST ROM, or the RST-E ROM. Wasted time extracting and injecting ROMs for nothing. Amazing, the only way for getting TRIM in RAID 0 with RST. Windows...

not compatible with windows 8

daniel k., Newegg
8 January 2013
  • Summary: Tried to contact manufacturer over a month ago. Still no response. I guess they dont care that my first build does not work correctly.
  • Pros: sata III and usb 3.0 but cannot take advantage of because drivers for Windows 8 from their website will FREEZE my pc and force me to hard shut down every time.
  • Cons: Cannot install ANY drivers for Windows 8. After clicking on any windows 8 driver from their website, the computer will FREEZE and force me to hard shut down EVERYTIME. I cannot take advantage of USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0 without those drivers.

Faulty engineering design

Anonymous, Newegg
29 December 2012
  • Summary: First complaint ever. Will not buy asrock again.
  • Pros: Have built 10K servers and workstations. Senior Engineer at major corps for 15 yrs.
  • Cons: Overpriced when purchased.Raid totally disfunctional can not be made to work under any circumstances. Bought second board had bent pin exactly same issues. Bios update will not upgrade. Retired and LOSS of $708 at time of build purchase price and build time is substantial. Recpt misplaced.

Darn good board

Tim O., Newegg
26 June 2012
  • Summary: I am not an over clocker, I don't do anything fancy. But it is nice to see that all of that is there if I wanted to use it. Since I am not trying to trick out this board, I have no problems with it. Beyond that, consider my review less helpful.
  • Pros: I really love this board. Maybe it's been a while since I bought a good mobo, but I really appreciate the bios. Nice, clean, and detected my mouse right away. I am running a pretty hefty gaming spec on this thing, and I haven't encountered any problems after several months running it (almost non ...
  • Cons: Nothing yet, you will be sure to read about it, if it happens.

Great board

Ruben L., Newegg
30 May 2012
  • Pros: Lots of sata ports, lots of PCIe slots, built in surround sound. UEFI is awesome and makes overclocking really easy since all the options have short descriptions. Just make sure you know what you are doing since some are kind of vague. The board looks cool too.
  • Cons: The only problems I have with it are fan control related. The SB fan is unreasonably loud at full tilt and I don't know if there is any way to set it up to be variable speed. Also I'm not sure if there is a variable speed option for the CPU fan either.
