Cons: Memory failure after only one week is a total **, when this is the second Asrock motherboard to fail in 3 weeks time and same issue. A slots give code 55 no memory installed, B slots working normal. I had a Z75 board first that failed, so I order a more expensive Z77 board and same issue. If the ...
Pros: When its working, this is an excellent Z77 board that lets you squeeze the life out of an older CPU. It's fast with lots of tweaking options.
Cons: Unfortunately, it died after about 3 months. I turned it off one night and it refused to power up again. After trying another PSU, which I later used to successfully power up a different board, it still wouldn't power up.
Summary: I was running this board with windows 7 64 bit and it gave me nothing but trouble. I got all these random weird errors. BSOD, random programs crashing, and i think the weirdest one is the inability to right click on programs in the system tray.I would get a message one time that said a file was...
Pros: It didnt catch on fire and melt my face or start eating babies.
Cons: Everything else. Okay thats a little vague but its seriously too much to list.
Summary: It's frustrating when you need to have a core component replaced & the company you need to deal with is f#$%ing closed on weekends. I also can't afford to be without my computer for an extended period of time.
Pros: Great products for the price. Easy OCs.
Cons: Rear USB intermittent failures. Started having issues with my system rebooting randomly. Very frustrating, infrequent, hard to diagnose. The problem was increasing and yesterday the rear USB showed to be the cause. I moved all USB devices to the front USB i/o & did a complete reload & stress test...
Summary: buy a brand with real RMA support for real users.
Pros: Pretty cheap, most basic things work, good BIOS.
Cons: Crossfire does not work with my dual HD 7950s. Either card will boot in either spot, but when I boot with both it will not initiate boot OS like it cannot detect the HD with both cards in. The best part is, they do not offer the same level of RMA service like most companies. They will not send yo...
Summary: this item that it bought from 3rd party member was an open box item that made no claim as to being used, and i specifically filtered new. now that 2nd and 3rd gen items are obsolete, the chances of getting a unused mobo are getting pretty slim. might of been a great item in it's time.
Summary: I was rather excited about this, setting up a new rig and everything. So these issues are rather dissapointing.
Pros: The UEFI is very easy to understand. It has a lot more space than my other board did, which was a micro atx.
Cons: While there is more space, it is still very cramped, to the point that my cpu water cooler is taking up space for one of my RAM slots. Also, while the UEFI is easy to understand, it automatically started overclocking my CPU (i7 3770 3.4 GHz) to 4.3 GHz with the first boot to the UEFI because sett...
Summary: It was a solid, easy to use and install motherboard for 2.5 years. I'd been running a PCIe TV tuner card in it for two years too. The motherboard won't recognize the TV tuner in any slots any more (verified the card works in other computers.
Pros: Lots of ports, lots of flexibility, very competitively priced
Cons: Lack of screw holes on the inner edge leads to some concerning flexing, complete failure of all PCIe slots simultaneously
