Summary: Won't bother with this manufacturer again.
Pros: Nice Features
Cons: Asrock boards are too particular regarding memory. It is too often difficult to find memory suitable for a given model.. They are simply not worth the trouble. Best to stick with ASUS, no where near the trouble.
Summary: For the price it was a great MOBO, but I've bot dozens of MOBOs in the past and never seen this issue
Pros: Has plenty of necessary slots. Got for a great price.
Cons: I am leaving this review after 8 months because the on-board audio went out on me. I purchased this for my work PC. It puts in about 60-70 hours of time 365 days a year. The audio began chirping loudly and oddly enough it would cause my screen to flicker; it was like a horrible case of the hiccup...
Summary: I have an annoying issue with this motherboard where the network adapter is broken anytime the PC wakes up from sleep. I've reinstalled windows and installed the latest drivers hoping to lick that problem, but it persists. Other than that, it works great. Gaming is issue-free.
Summary: I bought this motherboard because everyone said it was an easy way to overclock your Intel CPU. They were 100% right. Took me a day of tweaking to get the OC just right and better than most others could get at the same voltage settings. Now after about 6 months I am having issues with the OC.
Summary: Bought this along with an i5-2400 for an HTPC build, and have had no problems whatsoever. Great graphical BIOS/EFI configuration interface makes setup easy. The fan control options presented allow for a great deal of fine tuning, which was a selling point for my htpc build as I wanted to keep noise...
