Summary: Great board layout. The BIOS has great Geek Tweaking feastures and visual display for items on the motherboard that are activily plugged in. Running 8 GB DDR I7 3.4Ghz CPU, 120GB Samsung SATA3 SSD OS Drive, WIN7x64, and a Geovision 1480B for security surveillance. This runs great!
Summary: I've recently upgraded from an h77m to this motherboard. Being that I was a previous ASRock motherboard owner and never had problems before, I figured I may as well stick to what I know and go with the brand I trust most. Well thankfully I was not disappointed. This motherboard works like a charm. I have my i5 3570k overclocked at 4.2 GHz and overclocked my GC a little bit as well. I never had any problems. Also the bios set-up is pretty user-friendly.
Summary: I have 3770 OC to 4.3 with no problems. It's basically left on 24/7, and down volts to around 1.6G unless I'm gaming. Upgraded the BIOS off the bat to Ver (?). I have had no problems at all what so ever.
Summary: I purchased two of these along with Intel Core I5 processors and couldn't be happier - works great on an ATI Crossfire gaming setup with six monitors on one computer and three on the other. ASRock hit it out of the ballpark with this one! Highly Recommend!
Summary: Using this motherboard for a HTPC/plex server build. It has been running great over a year now. I bought it because of the price and features i was looking for in a HTPC build. The 2 feature i must have is the xRAM and THX certification. Added 16 GB ram and i disabled the pagefile and set the all temp and IE cache folders to the RAM disk. Saves my little SSD.
Summary: This is one great motherboard. I've had Intel, EVGA, Asus and many others over the years. This board is really fast and extremely simple to setup and use. I was so impressed with the first one that I bought another one along with faster RAM, CPU, CrossFire and made it a gaming machine. I am completely pleased with the design and function. Emails to ASRock were quickly answered and always with a follow-up.
