I've been having a lot of problems with this board..
19 May 2014
Summary: Well, I would really go for another board.. I've had this one for about 2 years. My PSU kept on needing replacements every 8 or so months, so I replaced my PSU 3 times before realizing it was my motherboard. (No shortages).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
