Generally good, issues with BIOS

Reed D., Newegg
22 May 2015
  • Summary: This board seems to be pretty hit-or-miss in terms of reliability. I seem to have gotten lucky with a board that has gone nearly 4 years without any problems - almost - I did have a major problem with it where it would hang and fail to post once, and only once, a day.
  • Pros: All the bells and whistles you could want
  • Cons: RAM slots very close to CPU - reduces selection of aftermarket coolers you can use BIOS can behave strangely

Now this board is better than the first one

Eric L., Newegg
2 May 2015
  • Summary: The first one of these I got rebooted every few minutes, the usb 3.0 did not work. Make sure you have memory that is listed, some of the older memory will not work even when it is good. I went from 4 2 gig to 2 4 gig and that fixed the memory issue that windows was tossing.
  • Pros: This board worked right out of the box. At least this one does not reboot time after time like the first one I ordered. So yay me! I was able to keep my ivy bridge h2 chip, and did not have to spend another 300 bucks.
  • Cons: This board is picky about what memory it uses. I had some old 1333 corsair memory part number cm3x2h1333c9b4 that I used in other computers over the years, it is good memory but this board hated it. I replaced the memory with some kingston that was listed and that fixed the memory errors I was ge...

Mother

David S., Newegg
25 March 2015
  • Summary: Would purchase again from ASRock, I always purchased Asus motherboards but seems the quality has gone down a step or two so I broke away from Asus and seems I will be buying ASRock in the future
  • Pros: First board had some issues but RMA and the second board works great. First time purchasing a ASRock Motherboard and I had some concerns but none now
  • Cons: None

Decent Budget MB

brian w., Newegg
19 January 2015
  • Summary: I haven't pushed the limits and overclocked or anything. Sometimes the nicest thing you can say about something as complicated as a motherboard is 'problem-free'.
  • Pros: Reliable, low-cost. I also like the bios codes that are shown both on screen and on an LED display on the board itself.
  • Cons: Minor quirks in bios, drives not well labeled on board and in manual, sometimes hangs on reboot (fixed by hitting reset button). Deducting 1 egg for last issue.

Works, Good Board

Trevor L., Newegg
22 December 2014
  • Pros: Lots of Features.
  • Cons: The only thing I don't like about this board is the sideways facing SATA ports, it makes it hard to plugin things especially when you don't have a lot of wiggle room in your case!

Needed BIOS update prevents 5 eggs

Mary S., Newegg
9 December 2014
  • Pros: -Easy UEFI to use -plenty of Sata ports, all which work (120gb SSD boot, 1tb HDD storage) -Large - no conflict with my gigantic EVGA GTX 780
  • Cons: Maybe this is just me, but a lot of times when entering or leaving full screen in games, I would Blue Screen. After updating the BIOS, this has completely stopped. Games this has happened with (most notably) -War Thunder -Battlefield 4

Performs Well Good bang for buck

Richard G., Newegg
14 November 2014
  • Summary: Replaced an Asus P8Z77-V-LE, poor RMA experience with Asus. Glad I did.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, has all the bells and whistles ones needs within its price point. Setup is easy, bios great. Overclocks well too.
  • Cons: Other than PCB is kinda thin, none
