Great features, high frequency of bad boards

Anonymous, Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: If you get your hands on a solid one, these boards are an amazing value. If you lose the motherboard roulette, you've burned $130-160 and/or loads of your valuable time, depending on time of purchase and whether you try to RMA it or you just write it off as a loss.
  • Pros: Great features for such a small board. Boots really, really fast.
  • Cons: I've owned two of these boards, as well as a Z97E-ITX later. The first Z87E-ITX died within the first day. The second Z87E-ITX lasted admirably until recently. The Z97E-ITX died out within the first day.

Avoid this

Anonymous, Newegg
15 March 2016
  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: There is a serious power issue with this mobo. First off, the factory WiFi/BT card was killed by the mobo (well the BT side of it, the WiFi side started to get wonky). I replaced that card with the Intel Wireless AC 7620 which is SUPERIOR. After a few months, the BT side of the card started havin...

Failed after 1 year

Michael H., Newegg
12 November 2015
  • Pros: No real issues while worked
  • Cons: Failed after 1 year, not posting and in a permanent reboot loop. Called asrock support they said they would send me an email for an RMA never did, called again still no email. I'd personally say avoid asrock.

Unreliable

Brian M., Newegg
31 October 2015
  • Pros: It is a feature filled motherboard while it works
  • Cons: After just under two years the motherboard stopped working. I have tested all other components of the PC with a known working motherboard with no issues. ASRock support has not responded to a support ticket submitted a few days ago.

not reliable

SOHEIL B., Newegg
26 July 2015
  • Summary: i had nothing but trouble with this board since day 1. first of all, like many others, i had trouble with memory bank B, and i had to go through constant "clear CMOS" and disassemble / reassembles for it to finally start seeing the RAM in bank B (both RAM modules tested fine on this computer and...
  • Pros: mSATA, WiFi, excellent UEFI
  • Cons: not reliable at all -- troublesome memory bank B -- random shutdowns while working / browsing/ gaming since day 1 -- random shutdowns while in sleep ... after about a year, one day it never woke up from sleep. it's completely dead.

Still Going Strong

Marcus H., Newegg
16 April 2015
  • Summary: This is an update for this board. I've had it for two years now. Bought it in December 2013. There have been a few changes to my configuration. The biggest was adding an i7-4790K. It overclocked to 4.5 GHz with ease. No additional firmware update was necessary.
  • Pros: Highly compatible, Fast.
  • Cons: None.

Typical ASRock

LINDA L., Newegg
13 January 2015
  • Summary: My motherboard stopped working after a few months, and ASRock told me to contact Newegg, who told me my item was not valid for return. Looing back at ASRock's site it says items are valid for a 1, 2, or 3 year warranty. I'm just confused and without a computer.
  • Pros: Works while it lasts
  • Cons: No support directly from asrock

Having great results with this board so far.

MIKE R., Newegg
12 November 2014
  • Summary: Never been much of a fan of ASROCK boards but after buying this one in a pinch, I am pleased so far.
  • Pros: Working out for our display systems nicely. I like the Msata port most of all.
  • Cons: Just one thing I didn't like. I would rather see the Msata port mounted on the bottom of the board like some others. Not really that big of a deal though.

Bummed

Adam B., Newegg

  • Pros: Lots of features, mSATA support
  • Cons: Weird wireless antenna
