Awesome Mobo

Thomas E., Newegg
12 April 2014
  • Summary: I've only had this mobo for a week and I'm easily impressed. The low cost plus the option for 2 pci3 3.0 cards is a handy feature for those who think about upgrading video cards.
  • Pros: Comes with 2 PCIe 3.0x slots, come with xFast USB utility, has PCI slots & usb 3.0. Raid support. Can easily customize bios.
  • Cons: Video memory in igpu on their site says 1792mb but I've only seen it go up to 1gb. No ide input.

Would not recommend in any circumstance.

Nicholas B., Newegg
5 April 2014
  • Summary: Specs: i7 4770k Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB GSKILL Ripjaw 8GB (2x4GB) @ 1866 Corsair 600D
  • Pros: When it turns on it works alright.
  • Cons: The first motherboard I received would turn on when not in the case, but would not work whatsoever inside the case. Eventually it would not turn on at all. After troubleshooting for several hours I gave up and RMA'd it. My Gigabyte AM3+ mobo was then installed and worked flawlessly. The second mo...

Budget Value

Richard M., Newegg
3 April 2014
  • Summary: My 5-4670 seems to like it just fine. For a budget board this is great.
  • Pros: Plays nicely with Ubuntu Linux and Linux Mint. The price point is good. BIOS patches can be done from a USB stick even with no OS installed. WIN! ASRock does a good job of providing RAM compatibility lists on their site.
  • Cons: Only two SATA cables included and some of the docs are, uh, murky.

High benching board for the price

Derek A., Newegg
27 March 2014
  • Summary: Your plain over clocking board without the extra stuff
  • Pros: I've did a lot of research before building my next computer... I usually dish out 400$ for an evga board... This Board Is Just As Fast And Is UP There With them... Cant Even Notice A Difference. Also stays very cool.
  • Cons: Cheap looking, had trouble with memory at first start up, flipped ram around and worked.. figured I was going to have to rma It But I lucked out.

DoA Board, doesn't post

Anonymous, Newegg
18 March 2014
  • Pros: Looks cool, fits everything I needed
  • Cons: DoA board. 3 beeps every time I tried to boot (which takes 3 tries EVERY time, no exceptions), no video output, nothing. Board simply doesn't work. I have tried every possible solution to no avail.

Great Board Great Price

Brandon F., Newegg
24 February 2014
  • Pros: I upgraded from my ASRock Z68 Extreme3 and a 2500k to this with a 4670k. The boards are nearly one to one. The bios seems updated, there's more USB 3 support, and no eSata. In the end, this is a great board if you don't need any fancy bells n whistles. Overclocks my 4670k to 4.2 Ghz without any s...
