5 out of 5 eggsVery good.

Pros: nice looking, good bios, did not need bios update for my FX 8320, also holds an OP amount of 64 gb ram.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: VERY good mother board for a budget if you do not plan on sli or extremely high overclocking. Had this ordered this mother board about a month and a half ago and read terrible reviews but to my surprise I did not experience any of those problems, so far, everything has worked awesome.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Mobo!

Pros: Great features. Fast and reliable. The board is my new go-to board for SLI adaptability in the future.

Cons: Although the Mobo manual says that it is power compatible with a 4-pin power connector, but i was unable to get the board to power up without using a true 8 pin 12V power connector. Just a quick FYI on that.. ended up delaying delivery because i thought it was a dead board. The replacement key'd me in that the manual may be wrong... and apparently it was.

Other Thoughts: Simply... I am sold on the ASRock boards.. this one for a client build, the Extreme 4 for my personal build. Great all around!

5 out of 5 eggsBest MB for the Money

Pros: Easy installation and Windows 8 ready.

Cons: Downgrading to Windows 7 for older games, but not a problem for the motherboard itself.

Other Thoughts: I am going to downgrade to Windows 7 for older games.

2 out of 5 eggsBios

Pros: Looks nice, it's probably really nice and fast.

Cons: Does not work with FX model processors, with natural bios. Update to bios is needed.

Other Thoughts: I bought the motherboard hoping to use it with my FX-6300, but I was disappointed to later find out that in order for it to work properly, a bios update is required. Well I'm out of luck since I don't have a spare AM3 cpu just laying around. I did eventually get a replacement directly from Asrock hoping that is would already have the bios updated as they knew what my problem was. Nope. Motherboard still doesn't work and now I have to buy a new one. I am sure it is a great product, just not for the FX series processors.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Mainboard supports AMD FX-6300 out of the box without updating BIOS.
For more information, please visit the link below for supported CPU with required BIOS version.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Asrock is asalways great quality. Bios works great; looks sharp.

Cons: bridges run fairly warm (solved with mounted heat sync from pc store); doesnt seem to like my current configuration: 1 x ASUS DirectCU II HD7790-DC2OC-2GD5; AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 4.0GHz ; CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM Timing 10-10-10-27 ;SanDisk Extreme SSD 120 GB SATA 6.0 Gb-s2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SDSSDX-120G-G25.

Not sure why. i have flashed the bios; put in windows 8; windows 81.; windows 7 ultimate and i still end up having to dump the os every few months even though i mostly play on steam and netflix.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst board

Pros: When it works, it has a nice set of options in bios

Cons: This is the second time the same things have occurred, bios freezes, stubborn to load windows, every time I play a game with this mobo there's large jagged tears in the graphics.

Other Thoughts: One of the lessons I learned overall is don't go cheap on the mobo, spend the extra 100 dollars get something you can use longer than a month.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

Sorry to hear the second mainboard having same issue.
For the freeze issue, Please clear the CMOS.
Set the UEFI BIOS default.
Check the CPU and system are not overheating.
Test with single memory module.
Visit below link if using FX series CPU with red star " * " indicated.

1 out of 5 eggsAsrock 970 Extreme 3

Pros: No pros worked great for a couple of months then started losing sata controllers one at a time

Cons: Board starts strong but then dies out slowly losing sata controllers. Running on a pci sata card now but still can run all my drives just he important one

Other Thoughts: Contacted Asrock they want me to send my board and wait on a replacement. So who is going to pay my company for the down time and business lost while I am with out my computer I can't do it all from my laptop all my software is on my desktop. I have always used Asrock but now things have changed. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER ONE AGAIN AND I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THEM TO MY CLIENTS OR FRIENDS. You did it to your self Asrock.
