2 out of 5 eggsIt makes my system work

Pros: My computer turns on- I can use my computer, it works.

Board has enough PCI slots, thank a higher power it has more than one.

Is not too big, just enough fan connectors

Cons: Motherboard has bad construction.
I would love to OC but i don't trust this board for that, wouldn't want to fry my only computer.
I would love to switch to a new company, because the support for this board is terrible(see other)

One of my PCI 16 slots died on me
My 2 ram slots died on me

My first board was DOA
This is my 2nd board.

Waste of time.

Other Thoughts: I contacted support, and i was given the finger. Will never buy this board or give it a referral for anyone else.
Support is terrible, contact them for RMA, no response, contact them again, they say to do an RMA, i send RMA, no response.

Would i change my mind if i was given a new board, maybe better construction. Yes, yes i would.

I gave up trying to get a new board and said f it, because i didn't want to deal with them. Bad mistake and really really bad decision, i want to see how far i can push my 7950.

If you are thinking about buying this board, please check out some others, and keep in mind the support.

2 out of 5 for support, construction, and not too many fan connectors.

1 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

Pros: While it worked i had no problems with it

Cons: After about a year my rig randomly shut down and it would boot up. put the motherboard on the box along with cpu and ram to see if it would post and give me an error beep without a graphics card plugged in. It booted and the area between the cpu and all the ports on the back caught on fire

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems

Pros: 3 years later and the motherboard is still going strong. I have had absolutely zero problems with the motherboard itself, and it has performed exactly as advertised.

Cons: Nothing, It did everything I expected it to do.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after less than 4mos

Pros: Fired right up initially

Cons: Died in less than 4 mos w/ only default settings, No OC'ing.

Other Thoughts: Less than 4 mos after installing this board it is now dead. Tried PSU, Memory, Video Card. Everything I know to troubleshoot after 25yrs as an IT Hardware professional.
ASRock does not answer emails even after filling out their page.
Will stick to another brand I guess.

5 out of 5 eggsASRock 990FX AM3+ motherboard

Pros: Supports AM3+ 125W processor, 990FX Northbridge, 2 external USB3.0 ports, 6 external USB2 ports, eSATA port, 5 SATA III, PS2 keyboard & mouse ports, 6 external USB2 ports, 3 internal USB2 headers for 6 more USB2 ports, 8 audio channels, 3 PCIe 2.0 x 16 slots, 2 PCI slots, inexpensive.

Cons: no on-board USB 3, no firewire, 5.1 sound works OK, but I can't seem to get 7.1 sound. Connecting or disconnecting headset to/from the front panel crashes the system.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with this board. The front panel is connected to an adapter card, and the webcam microphone is good enough. For the price the board is a real bargain.

5 out of 5 eggsMaybe I was lucky, Got a great board unlike some other reviewers

Pros: -Favorite part(& big part of why I bought it) is that it can do 2 PCI Express 2.0 x 16 slots at the full x16 speed. I used these to Crossfire my 2 AMD Radeon HD 6770s together & it made one heck of a gaming rig, taking everything I threw at it & performing marvelously.
-SATA ports are SATA III. Mixed with SSDs, this thing REALLY moved!
-Gigabit LAN, I won't buy a board (or system for that matter) without this anymore. Gigabit is a minimum LAN speed.
-TONS of USB ports
-On board USB 3.0 sure is fast
-XFAST USB maxes out the USB. I noticed the biggest difference in the 2.0 ports since the 3.0 ones are already blazingly fast.
-The audio was great IMO. Didn't use it's full potential tho, just stereo.
-LOADS of FAN connectors compared with only 3 on my new board.
-REALLY enjoyed the THX TruStudio software.

Cons: -UEFI - What the **** is that all about? Gimme the old Basic straight forward info the way the BIOS UI is supposed to. Quit trying to pretty things up in stupid ways. Seeing a lot of MoBo manufacturers going this route. -_-
-only 5, instead of 6, SATA ports
-....Not really much else comes to mind. I replaced it for reasons I don't remember now & have been trying to sell it for several months. There may be bad reviews and DOAs & such, but this is one we KNOW works well.

Other Thoughts: Got this back in March 2012 and used it up until November of this past year (2014). If I can't sell it, I'll turn it into another gaming rig so my main one and the new one can be networked together to play some sweet LAN games. I'd LOVE to put another 3 systems together specifically for LAN games on Crysis & Starcraft & stuff. GOLLY that'd be awesome to be able to afford (money AND time). -Sigh-
Great Mobo, Definitely recommend for Crossfiring 2 cards together.

5 out of 5 eggsgood for the price

Pros: everything has worked as specified. Minor overclocking on an 8320 with an evo 212 cooler. I have had no issues at all with the motherboard although if I was building now I would go with one that has better 8 core support and more USB 3.0 ports

Cons: poor 8 core support

Other Thoughts: As long as you do your research on compatible CPU and RAM, this motherboard works exactly as it should

1 out of 5 eggsDied before a year and a half

Pros: Worked while it lasted

Cons: Random reboots throughout it's life. Changed PSU to try to fix this and it still did it up until it died. ASRock refused to RMA at this issue. Then when I was playing GTA V it completely shutdown, now it's not even performing POST at all (Removing RAM with a speaker plugged in results in no beep codes.) I will not recommend ASRock as a brand anymore.

Other Thoughts: ASRock support distanced themselves from any and all responsibility of this product's defects. For that reason I'm giving them a poor rating. I know that this is probably just a dud board, but I wouldn't be in this boat if ASRock RMA'd this board when I was having the initial issue.
