Worked great at first

J. Loomis "loomijj", Amazon

  • 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.

Do not buy if you have Ivy Bridge CPU

  • Summary: The bios can't handled an IVY bridge CPU without an update. Unless you have a Sandy Bridge CPU, you will need to call ASRock and they will mail you a new bios.

Solid board, slow NIC

B. Andersen, Amazon

  • Summary: The motherboard was great and super easy to work with. The BIOS automatically detected my video card and disabled its own onboard video, which I thought was rad. It has been a great motherboard... My only complaint is the onboard Network Interface Card... it is awful.

One problem...

  • Summary: The item was delivered in a timely fashion. After assembling my computer I got the blue screen of death. After hours on the phone it turns out the USB3 drivers that came with the motherboard are not compatible. I had to completely disable the USB3 hardware and now the computer works well.

Rock solid vanilla board, TERRIBLE overclocker

  • Summary: If you just need a solid board to run a Sandy Bridge setup with a single (or no) discreet GPU, you really can't go wrong with this one. Looks good, everything works as designed...again, for a basic board there really isn't anything to complain about.

Nothing special and overpriced

Eta Oin, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this motherboard in a rush. Failed to check the prices, but later found vendors selling it for $20-30 cheaper, to my astonishment. Felt cheated. The board is surely not feature-rich as the price conveys. ASUS or MSI would definitely be a better purchase, IMHO.

Good but there are construction glitches...

Jakub Bialek "Jakub", Amazon

  • Summary: I've bought this mobo as a replacement of my old AMD system. Overall it is a good product, well built and with good over-clocking capabilities. There is one problem though, the ATX socket sits in front of PCI-e x1 slot and it prevents instillation of longer pcie x1 cards like my Asus Xonar D2X.

  • Excerpt: Сравниваю с MSI P67A-C45 и сравнение не в пользу AsRock. Если отбросить чипсет Z68, то все указанные недостатки в плате MSI отсутствуют, а цена примерно та же. Общая оценка - 3,5 "звезды".
  • Pros: Чипсет Z68 со всеми функциями, USB3, качественные компоненты (судя по описанию). Богатый настройками БИОС. Достаточно адекватная цена. Совместимость с кулерами от LGA775.
  • Cons: У конденсаторов и силовых элементов вокруг процессорного сокета всего один радиатор (сверху), элементы слева им не снабжены что явно не способствует долговечности. Нет SLI/CF. Кривая программная реализация управления скоростью вращения вентиляторов (мне, например, оказалось удобней процессорный к...
