Gets the job done, for the most part.

  • Pros: -Easy Overclocking -Has Clear CMOS button -Lots of USB 2.0/3.0 -Pretty much the only mobo available that is compatible with my 2600k. -Dual Channel memmory -Plenty of SATA 6gb/s ports -Multiple PCI-E
  • Cons: -Drivers are terrible -Had to take out the CMOS battery because it wouldn't let me undo the overclock -After a year, the USB 3.0 has stopped working. I've updated drivers and nothing has fixed it. -Difficult to file an RMA with Asrock. -Not enough fan headers on mobo. -Can hear electrical audio i...

  • Summary: I purchased this motherboard 3 years ago and it still works great today. A bit of a warning though, after I purchased mine, my father wanted to get one as well for his computer build and after about a year or so he started experiencing some kind of issues involving legacy usb.

Great if everything works.

  • Summary: If you can find it new and have the 2500k or 2600k it is an easy choice. If used check for problems as mine was new and still had problems.
  • Pros: One of the last new motherboards I could find for my 2600 as I still see no reason to upgrade even with the arrival of Skylake. Well designed, spacing for SLI is good.
  • Cons: -Don't like the location of the 8 pin connector, a stretch for my PSU. -The top USB 3.0 ports are dead. Not a big enough reason for me to RMA a product that they probably can't replace. Annoying but as this let me upgrade my system to an SLI configuration I'll sacrifice those 2 ports over having ...

  • Summary: Its a nice looking motherboard with an okay bios. But it flexes easily and doesny come with any screws for your case. And doesnt sit very high. I had to put cardboard under it to get it to fit in my case.

Great Board at First, Durability is Questionable

Christopher F., Newegg
7 July 2015
  • Summary: I dislike having to post this review, as I do believe with the design flaw I mentioned above taken care of, even via simply using a thicker backboard, that this would easily be a motherboard that lasts a long time. It's well-built. It comes with a lot of stuff that's hard to get elsewhere.
  • Pros: This was, at the time I purchased, the cheapest Z97 board that supported Intel's Xeon CPUs while having PCI 3.0. Conveniently, it also reviewed really well. For a long time, it worked perfectly. However, the board has a bit of a design flaw that has over time reduced its reliability for me. Perha...
  • Cons: Really, this board has one major design flaw - it's flexible. Very, very flexible. It's easy to bend the board in place simply by pressing gently on it. Over time, the fluctuating heat where I live, in conjunction with this fact, has slightly warped a few of the contacts on the board - as I said,...

Great price but...

  • Summary: I've had this for about a year now and my screen went crazy. Thought it was my graphics card but decided to switch slots and the other one worked fine. Found out the first slot was bad. Great price though and it was fine until now. So even if I wanted to go SLI, I can't.
