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
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...
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
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
