5 out of 5 eggsWorth every penny

Pros: Quality construction, Fully featured, Small form factor. I wanted a solid foundation for an expandable entry level build. The BIOS is REALLY nice. I look at this as an "everything you need with nothing you don't" board. I love it and will be staying with ASRock in the future.

Cons: None at all unless you want SLI, and then you're comparing apples to oranges.

Other Thoughts: LOVE it!

1 out of 5 eggsBad board

Pros: It was cheap for a mini itx z97 when I was impulse shopping for a board to go with a good deal I got on the processor that I used it with.

Cons: It failed after a few weeks. It started turning itself off overnight (I never reboot my main PC) and eventually wouldn't come back on. Now, with all known good components, it turns on for a second, then shuts off for 3 or 4, then loops through that cycle forever. There are other people with other ASRock Z97 boards with the same problem, but their workarounds that involve fiddling with the cmos clear button don't work on my particular board.

Other Thoughts: I worked at a place for a few years where I had to do RMAs for motherboards a few times a week. Based on my experience with ASRock's RMA process, I am sure that I'm better off just eating the board cost and buying a better brand to replace it.

1 out of 5 eggsdoesn't tolerate losing power

Pros: cheap

Cons: When power is shut off or accidentally lost this motherboard won't allow the computer to reboot and needs to have the clear CMOS set to get the computer to work again. Need a workaround for this so I don't have to rebuild the whole computer.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggswon't tolerate losing power- must clear CMOS

Pros: cheap

Cons: When I accidentally shut down the computer with the power button, or the power goes out accidentally, the computer won't reboot because of this motherboard and I have to use the Clear CMOS button and reset everything. This isn't right. From a google search I'm not the only one with this problem. Would like a workaround so I don't have to completely rebuild my computer.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost there

Pros: Good layout, easy to use bios, quick boot up, all ports are functional, super fast rebate

Cons: Poor wifi reception - an old usb wifi dongle had better reception in the exact same location.
Wifi/bluetooth card interferes with the Logitech unifying receiver! No Bios setting to disable the wireless card.

Other Thoughts: After running a Cat 6 cable and removing the wifi/bluetooth card from the motherboard, the keyboard finally works from across the room again!

I'm not sure if I just got a defective wireless module or if no one else uses a Logitech TK820 keyboard but I'm glade that it finally works.

5 out of 5 eggsTough little board!!!

Pros: Very stable, Easy overclocking, and is the perfect solution for small form factor builds!

I'm loving this board! I only ever used Gigabyte boards, but this is a pleasant surprise. You won't be dissapointed!

Cons: None so far. 3 months and no issues at all. Great Mobo!

Other Thoughts: Good Job ASRock! Keep it up! I'll definitely consider you guys for future builds!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Over All

Pros: It works well for overclocking. No issues with ram compatibility. Nice splash of color. Included software is ok. A big plus is the m.2 slot, cuts down on the cables in a itx case.

Cons: For the price i think its missing some of the extras like a painted I/O shield and a magnetic wifi antenna. The UEFI was not as user friendly as compared to others i have used.

Other Thoughts: Got this because of the m.2 slot and the color.Over all this MOBO is good but wait for a sail.

1 out of 5 eggsWorks for a little while...

Pros: OK Layout, typical for Mini-ITX
Working WIFI, though I never got bluetooth to function

Cons: After using for a few months, it died suddenly.
ASRock tech support is terrible to deal with, and refused to accept responsibility for the issue, claiming it was a damaged CPU problem or else my own fault.
Huge fees for replacement, and its not worth my time for a sub-par product.

Other Thoughts: Turns out, the board failed, causing the damage to my CPU. I had to replace both due to this, and ASRock has no warranty protection nor would they simply do an RMA without a ton of red tape in the way and a ridiculous fee, such that after paying for that and shipping I'd have payed for the board half again. This was my first ASRock product. Not going back to ASRock anytime soon. I got more help with diagnosing the issue after replacing the board and talking to ASUS support who correctly identified correctly not only that the CPU was a fault but that my hard drive seemed to be failing.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsM.2 is Horribly Implemented

Pros: It's small and has a lot of features

Cons: M.2 port on the bottom is placed in a horrible location. Almost any device will be blocked by the CPU backplate, rendering it useless

Other Thoughts: Bought it for the M.2 port. Due to poor design I can't use the board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Due to Mini ITX mainboard, the space for M.2 slot is limited. However, the Intel stock cooler does not required back plate.
If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Motherboard for Audiophiles

Pros: Audiophile Quality Sound
I am an audiophile, I connected my Sennheiser HD 600 into the front headphone output of this Motherboard and was blown away by the sound. The built in TI NE5532 headphone amp outperformed my Bottlehead Crack's amp in clarity.

Cheap and High Quality Board components with many functions. It has a lot of functions just read about them on the asrock website. It is a good bang for the buck for a premium motherboard.

Cons: USB port connected mouse produces a hard to notice hiss. I noticed it's not really a con because just about all motherboard is heard does this.
