Summary: This is an extremely good budget board that will do almost anything you want or need it to do. the only thing i hate is on the middle right side of the board there is no standoff so it feels like it is floating.
Summary: I paired this with an i5 K series proc and 16GB of ram and has been very solid. Easy install but some bloatware that you have to pay for if you want to upgrade to the newest version. Some people may find some of the utilities useful.
Summary: I picked up this motherboard for my new build, and it runs excellently with my i7-2600k. It's got a user friendly UEFI interface with tons of overclock options, and is OS agnostic with both arch linux and linux mint installs working flawlessly. With the arch install, I was even able to add the OS to the UEFI boot menu instead of using an external boot loader. Unless you need SLI instead of crossfire, I would recommend you look no further for an 1155 motherboard.
Summary: ASRock is lucky I am giving this product 2 stars. The only reason this is not a 1 star is because they DO provide a lot of features with their boards at a tough-to-beat price point that has worked for many people. I am a victim of straying away from my normal go-to brands to save a few dollars and get burned in the process. I used this board to build my wifes gaming rig as it was recommended by several tech sites as a great value.
Summary: Used this for a retail store POS build. It boots quickly and has been 100% stable in the two months we've been using it. This is my third AS Rock m/b that I've built with - I'm becoming a big fan!
Summary: For the price, I have no real complaints. The ASRock eXtreme tuner software used to monitor and adjust clock speeds and voltages is a bit laggy, freezes up for a bit when changing clock speeds sometimes. The board does not support changing vcore voltage, just vcore voltage offset. May have to manually change your ram clock speed in bios as it auto sets to maximum non overclocking speeds.
Summary: Perfect for individuals like myself who are afraid of overclocking. Note that in combination with the i5-3470 3.2 GHz processor, the turbo boost can be increased with this motherboard. If you use an aftermarket CPU cooler, like I do, you can comfortably operate all four cores at 4.0 GHz, even though the processor is not unlocked for overclocking. Well worth the purchase.
