Summary: I ordered this mobo for use with a compact gaming pc I was building. The computer did not POST however there was power being supplied. I sent it in for refund and bought a very similar ASUS mobo which worked beautifully. ASrock is notorious for having a high defect rate so if you buy this board beware.
layout and look of this board were great and the bios easy enough to navigate and understand

Summary: The design, layout and look of this board were great and the bios easy enough to navigate and understand. Unfortunetly the USB and other rear panel sockets were not grounded properly and as a result interference from other devices was annoying. The most annoying example being USB mouse movement picked up by my in ear head phones on 3.5mm jack plug, I have a feeling i may have just been unlucky and got a bad i would recommend you try all sockets in a quiet enviroment...
Summary: The quality of the product is below the expectations and it is not working as advertised. There are problems with two of the USB 3 ports on the back pannel - not all devices can be recognized on them although the the other two USB 3 ports are working normally. Also the WiFi adapter cannot connect at 300 Mbps as it is advertised - I have tried with different versions of Windows and Linux but it connects at 72 Mbps every time.
