Great motherboard, first one arrived DOA though.

Chris W., Newegg
26 April 2015
  • Pros: Upgraded to this motherboard when my older ASRock Z68 kicked the can. Once I got a working board, the installation and bootup went perfect. Overclocking my Intel i5 2500k was super simple.
  • Cons: First board was DOA and that was a bummer, especially since my older ASRock board crapped out on me.

Caution - Digital audio poor on these boards

Andrew C., Newegg
18 April 2015
  • Pros: Does mostly what a motherboard should...
  • Cons: Huge con is that the digital out is NOT 5.1! unbelievable! Since I got this as a home theater PC you can imagine the pain I am going through. Now have to buy a separate audio card just to get digital audio (something my 7 year old mother board was doing fine till it died).

Follow up on Extreme4 RMA

Greg H., Newegg
2 April 2015
  • Summary: I'm not reviewing the product so much as I am ASRock's RMA policy. I would have been more than happy to pay them to ship me the board first & then return the failed one. Being down for 8 days put me a week behind on school as well as removed the one place in my home I come to unwind.
  • Pros: I finally got my board back from RMA. It took 8 days. Wait, is this a pro? The new board is flawless, so far, that got them an egg back. I hope it stays that way.
  • Cons: RMA took 8 days with me paying $45 for two day shipping...

Works well. Trouble with overclocking.

Joe S., Newegg
8 March 2015
  • Summary: Nice board. Price was kind of high for how old ivy bridge is now. Not a big deal, I willingly bought it. It looks nice, has the features you would expect and it runs well. 2 eggs off for the overclocking issue.
  • Pros: Stable and looks good. Z77 so it supports Sata3 and USB 3. Has support for two x8 gpus. bla bla bla. Typical mid range motherboard. Shipped with newest bios. Asrock has yet to send me a board that I am truly disappointed in.
  • Cons: UEFI is kind of lame. My other Asrock uefi boards have a nicer bios. Not a big deal. My main grief is that this board will not overclock my 3770k higher than 4.1ghz. Its not a stability issue, it just wont go higher than 4.1 even if I set it to 4.2 or 4.3. The board just underclocks it when its u...

USB Fails

John J., Newegg
8 February 2015
  • Summary: At least it wasn't DOA. However, it is a real pain in the keester to have all your software and OS installed and have to replace a motherboard. Other things can be replaced far more easily (no os reinstall, etc). A motherboard needs to be solid. I would advise choosing a different board.
  • Pros: I've had this board just over a year now. For me, it has been fine, until that last month or so both the USB 2 and USB 3 ports are starting to die.
  • Cons: The USB 2 and USB 3.0 ports are dying. I will be right in the middle of something and my mouse and keyboard freeze (until reboot), and I lose everything. Happens every couple of days now. Did a fresh reinstall (went from Windows 7 x64 to Windows 8.1 x64) in order to determine if it was a software...

User Review

Edward I., Newegg
5 December 2014
  • Summary: It was good, until it went down hill... very disappointed
  • Pros: Fast Startup Simple BIOS Mother board performed very well for the price
  • Cons: Crashed upon a few months. Very common problem that other consumers are running into of it crashing and not processing. If you do get this motherboard be aware of the risk you take. Mother board was not starting up, found out it was a problem with processing the ram on the motherboard.

Solid, but poor USB 3.0

Carriage C., Newegg
21 October 2014
  • Summary: I certainly wouldn't throw ASROCK under the bus for this, but it's frustrating. I have never contacted ASROCK, and that probably should have been one of my first steps.
  • Pros: It's a rock solid board other than the con I'll list below. Have never had a hiccup except for the USB drivers. Not sure if it's the board or a Windows 7 problem, but an internet search leads me to believe it's a board/drivers issue. If not for this (one of the reasons I upgraded my board) I woul...
  • Cons: USB 3.0 worked initially, then stopped working. I've reinstalled the drivers, tried different drivers, updated firmware, tweaked the bios, cruised the internet for answers and still can't get the onboard USB 3.0 working. It appears to be a common problem with this board. As I said, it worked at f...

Good for a while

Stephen D., Newegg
26 August 2014
  • Summary: For the price I would still buy this board again. The warranty RMA stuff sucked but the board has been pretty solid and has good features.
  • Pros: Excellent Layout. Great Features. Good price point for all you get.
  • Cons: - Customer Service. On Board NIC blew out in a a storm. Replaced the NIC out of pocket with a PCI-e card worked well for about another month but then board went out for no reason. Sent to RMA in Chino where they promptly lost it and tried to tell me they never got it until I provided a tracking n...
