Summary: This MoBo does NOT support Ivy Bridge CPU's. (Intel i5 / i7) That is Intel's new generation of CPUs. If you call Asrock, they will ship you a new bios chip. However, it was advertised as supporting Ivy Bridge. This clearly isn't true. When Asrock sends the new chip, it will take about a week or so. Spend your money elsewhere.
Summary: This is my first ASROCK motherboard, and it will be my last. Not that the hardware is that bad, it's decent enough as far as motherboards go, but I had a major issue from day one: the on-board BIOS had no Ivy Bridge support, so I received an error code 55 on the motherboard's LED display upon POST.
Summary: W.E YOU DO DON,T BUY THIS MOTHERBOARD. MY MOTHER BOARD DIED AFTER 2 WEEKS BECAUSE WHEN I WAS ON MY PC JUST WATCHING A MOVIE IT SHUT OFF AND THEN WHEN I OPENED UP EVERY THING TO CHECK IF TH PARTS WERE DEFECTIVE I FOUND OUT THE CPU SOCKET WAS BENT EVEN THOU I DID,NT TOUCH IT. I CONTACTED ASROCK ABOUT IT THEY WERE LIKE ITS MY FAULT AND THEY THINK IT WAS A PHYSICAL DAMAGE DONE BY ME.
Summary: Bought the board due to the great feature set for the price. Since day 1 I had issues with my computer not waking from sleep (running stock settings--no overclocking). Tried updating the bios, on 3 different occasions (each time a new version was released), but that never fixed the issue. Other than that, everything seemed fine, so I decided to just live with the issueas it seemed to be a minor inconvenience. After several months of use, my board just died.
Summary: I picked this motherboard up at a decent price from Amazon, but it turned out to be dead on arrival. The board starts up for a second then shuts down, and repeats the process until you pull the plug. I went through all of the troubleshooting steps and removed all unnecessary components to eliminate other causes of this behavior.
Summary: Always had a slow boot, then gave up completely 1 month after their 12 month warranty. Probably best to buy a motherboard from a decent manufacturer who are responsible regarding their faulty equipment and provide at least a two year warranty.
Summary: Do not buy this board if you have a intel ivy bridge cpu, not unless you already have a intel sandy bridge cpu to update bios first, research google on this board it has a few problems, going to stick to gigabyte in future
Summary: Motherboard went faulty after 2 months. It just stopped functioning. The worst thing is that Sapient Computers did not want to honour the warranty period and decided not to communicate anymore with me. So I had to raise a complaint with Amazon and to my disbelief they also decided not to honour the warranty. Beware of Sapient Computers as their after sales service is horrible. This is my last purchase from Amazon.
Summary: Das erste mal hier bestellt.......schnelle Lieferung aber das war es auch schon! Rechner zusammengebaut, Kühler montiert mit allen drum und dran 3Stunden. Gestartet und was passiert? Fehler Code 55 ( Kein Speicher erkannt ) Geil ey echt....bin stink sauer hab mich schlau gemacht und festgestellt das der Fehler sogar hier bekannt ist, es ist das Bios was veraltet ist und den Ivy Bridge Prozessor nicht erkennt.
