I've been having a lot of problems with this board..

TheComputerDewd, Amazon
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).

DO NOT BUY / DOES NOT SUPPORT INTEL IVY BRIDGE

C.A. Jenkins, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • 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.

Decent Board, Terrible Customer Service

Joseph Luppens, Amazon
5 September 2012
  • 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.

Very poor RMA quality control and support

John E., Newegg
1 July 2012
  • Summary: Board died--sent it in and about 2 weeks later I got a micro ITX board back from ASRock as a replacement! Sent that back and finally got a true replacement. Took it out of the package, installed it, flipped the switch and--POOF--smoke and sparks near the CPU.
  • Pros: Board has a great feature set. Bought it due to the number of good reviews and the bang for the buck the board seemed to deliver. Nice USB 3.0 adapter.
  • Cons: From day 1 my computer would never wake from sleep (no overclocking--everything stock). Upgraded the BIOS at least 3 times to newer versions each time hoping the new BIOS revision would fix this issue, but it never got fixed. Finally after a number of months the board just died. RMAd the board, a...

Very poor RMA quality and support

John Ericksen, Amazon
1 July 2012
  • 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.

  • Cons: Two of the Four~~>Sata III POrt 6.0gbps DIED this month///"instant flash" is corrupted and when I click on it in BIOS it spits out garbled characters like {}\}P{P{{}{ so I know the motherboard is corrupted in some way shape or form.

BIOS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH IVY BRIDGE CPU

Carlos C., Newegg
16 May 2012
  • Pros: Prompt reply from Asrock. They will send you a new BIOS chip to install, but they ran out of them so I'll have to wait.
  • Cons: Requires BIOS update 2.1 plus updated drivers for ivy bridge cpu to work. The newegg description of the mobo is incomplete. So for the time being I have a 1000+ dollars useless pc brick
