5 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard

Pros: -Easy install
-Straightforward BIOS
-Fast boot is really fast
-Stable
-Runs cool (North bridge the hottest
-Good Sata cables

Cons: -Oddly placed USB 3 pins
-Only 2 Sata cables

Other Thoughts: I went back and forth with this motherboard because of the rating, and decided to get it and it has been wonderful. Currently running a FX-6350, XFX 290A EDBD, and 8gb of Kingston Fury X 1866 mhz and everything is great. BIOS is really easy to navigate and the features on the baord such as FastLan and FastUSB and Fast Boot are really nice. For $75.00 I'm not really sure what else I would want from a motherboard. ASrock was very quick to confirm my mail in rebate. I think I will continue to put my faith in them for my future motherboard needs.

3 out of 5 eggsdcs

Pros: Good layout with plenty of sata and usb connections. The esata port works well, although it would be nice if it was hot swappable.

Cons: USB 3 ports on io panel and header do not work. I was really disappointed in this because, it has been a long time since I built my last computer and I really wanted this one to be up to date on the USB and Sata. I am running Linuxmint 17 and have searched the web to see if someone has a fix for this. No luck.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works.

Cons: Do not plan on any overclocking on this board with anything past a FX-6300. I can't get my FX-8320 stable at all after stock speeds. The manufacturer should mention the limits of this board as I don't think it could even handle a FX-8350 and up.

4 out of 5 eggsGood board.

Pros: It worked first time.

Cons: RAM is stupid hard to install, you have to press down hard enough to almost break the board to get it in the slot, not like you drop it in and lock it. The back plate refused to go on and there was no help in the instructions, its held on with electrical tape inside the case. Doesn't line up well with pre-established mount points in the case. Out of 6 screws I got 3 in and only 1 in all the way.

Other Thoughts: I can't complain too much on a sub $100 board, but dang this thing piss3d me off. Also thought the board was DOA, never plugged in power for the CPU. Felt like an idiot when it was pointed out to me.

2 out of 5 eggsSeems to be a very good product but DOA :(

Pros: -Seems to be a very decent Motherboard.

Cons: -DOA on arrival, fans worked but nothing on screen. I've searched on the internet for answers, checked connections everything. But it was only the motherboard.

Manufacturer Response:

Please follow the procedure to check your system.
Step1:

Step3:
Clear CMOS
(Please refer to motherboard user manual for clearing CMOS)
Step4:
Plug the power cable back to the system and also re-connect your monitor, mouse and keyboard.
Step5:
Turn on the power and make sure CPU, and CPU fan is functioning.
If it's still not no display, please change another CPU, memory for try.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine, some annoyances.

Pros: - Inexpensive (when I bought it) -- praying I get the $35 rebate.
- Attractive and comprehensive BIOS config interface.
- Rock-solid performance.

Cons: - XFast advertising is potentially misleading... it's just software.
- Some components (SATA ports, chipset heatsinks) seem a little loose on the motherboard.
- Can't figure out how to get the keyboard backlight to turn off on Sleep.
- Can't figure out how to get a BIOS POST screen/logo on startup.
- No on-board video.

Other Thoughts: I'm not an "extreme" overclocker. I installed 1866 RAM and boosted the base CPU clock up 5 MHz. Everything runs cool and rock solid with an FX-8320, Hyper 212 Plus cooler and G.Skill memory.

The XFast LAN software is nice. I haven't tried the USB or RAM software. I'm somewhat fearful of the USB software but I've seen that it actually works and the latter is just a ram disk solution.
