Summary: Great board layout. The BIOS has great Geek Tweaking feastures and visual display for items on the motherboard that are activily plugged in. Running 8 GB DDR I7 3.4Ghz CPU, 120GB Samsung SATA3 SSD OS Drive, WIN7x64, and a Geovision 1480B for security surveillance. This runs great!
Summary: I've recently upgraded from an h77m to this motherboard. Being that I was a previous ASRock motherboard owner and never had problems before, I figured I may as well stick to what I know and go with the brand I trust most. Well thankfully I was not disappointed. This motherboard works like a charm. I have my i5 3570k overclocked at 4.2 GHz and overclocked my GC a little bit as well. I never had any problems. Also the bios set-up is pretty user-friendly.
Summary: I purchased two of these along with Intel Core I5 processors and couldn't be happier - works great on an ATI Crossfire gaming setup with six monitors on one computer and three on the other. ASRock hit it out of the ballpark with this one! Highly Recommend!
Summary: It's ok. There are no onboard sounds, because the onboard speakres do not work. Also, if you'd like to set up RAID, the 6G SATA will be retarded to 3G SATA for the purpose of your RAID. What? I can have 3 separate, 6G throughput drives, but not one RAID array w/6G throughput? Why would you build a board like that? Outside of that, I really like it.
Summary: Some parts like the onboard usb and the sata are slightly difficult to access from time to time, but once you get them in the function of the board is great. Onboard sound and video are decent (if you're slowly adding parts to a new clone build).
Summary: This is one great motherboard. I've had Intel, EVGA, Asus and many others over the years. This board is really fast and extremely simple to setup and use. I was so impressed with the first one that I bought another one along with faster RAM, CPU, CrossFire and made it a gaming machine. I am completely pleased with the design and function. Emails to ASRock were quickly answered and always with a follow-up.
