5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: Many included features available on regular ATX boards
Included Wifi and Bluetooth
New M.2_SSD socket though I am not using it instead have a standard Sata SSD
Great on board audio (I'm using it for a HTPC and so far it sounds great)
Plenty of USB connectors and a 3.0 header so I have 4 USB 3.0 ports and 4 USB 2.0.
Plenty of OC option in the UEFI which you can also use to update your drivers through! Very cool feature.

Cons: 1st board arrived DOA but New egg replaced it fast so no eggs ff for that.
Only one CPU fan header and one case fan header though it is a tiny board so it is understandable.
No others that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: My first ASRock board and overall I am impressed with the quality and features and the lower price compared to MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS (which BTW their websites and the logo etc. look awfully similar to ASUS, sister companies perhaps?)etc.

If you are looking for a SFF build you have to consider this board.

2 out of 5 eggsDefective Wifi that does not connect

Pros: Works well with CPU purchased i5 and i7.

Cons: The built in wifi shows connected but is unable to get a web page or nothing shows. Using Win7 bit. When connecting an old USB 2.0 wifi 802.1b, it works immediately. Kinda upset as to why a new out of the box board built in WiFi is defective.

Other Thoughts: If no one replies I am going to RMA this board

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsNice Little Mobo for HTPC

Pros: -stable stock speeds, I do not overclock as this is for a HTPC
-feature packed!! HDMI in/out (audio passthrough)
-AC wireless built is solid and works great!
-6 SATA-3 connectors is plenty for multiple HDs and SSDs
-M.2 Socket for future upgrade ability is a nice feature to have
-LAN built in
-6-USB 3.0
-Bluetooth 4.0 built-in

Cons: -ONLY 2 DDR3 Slots (16GB supported)
-Old bios, but easy to update
-M.2 socket on the back of the board

Other Thoughts: This is a great board for building a mini-itx. It comes with many great built in features such as HDMI out, AC wifi, Blue tooth, and M.2 socket to take advantage of newer SSDs. The only con I had was that there are only 2 memory slots which is to be expected with a mini-itx, so make sure you buy the correct memory size. Everything has been stable so far and HD1080p movies have worked wonderful on the HDTV. Wireless is also great for being onboard.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfecto

Pros: I must admit that as an I.T. professional who has been around and tinkered with small computers for 30+ years this is my first personal ASRock board. As the owner of a small PC service company I usually do no use ASRock boards either. I have no particular bios against them. There have just always been other companies higher in my selection process.
Getting started I will say this board comes expertly packed with foam surround zip tied at the 4 corners. Nice attention to detail. +1 ASRock. There is so much one of these little boards could be used for. I chose to replace my LARGE bedroom home theater PC (x58 gaming tower) with a small but powerful and quiet system. I started with this motherboard. It is small but has everything (and then some) I could want. I have this installed in a Cooler Master Elite 120 M-ITX case. I replaced the front fan with a temp sensing blue LED 120mm Enermax Everest Advance case fan. This board has 2 fan headers. I have 3 fans so it helps that the front 120mm has a temp sensor as I used a Molex adapter to power it. I had a new i7-4790k 4.0GHz “Devils Canyon” CPU overnighted the day they came out. I capped the CPU with a Cooler Master GeminII M4 CPU cooler and MX4 thermal paste. This CPU runs 4GHz stock and is serious overkill for home theater for sure but I only want to do this once. No regrets here. Using my Cooler Master case I had to juggle what I plugged in and connected first. CPU goes in first then 16 Gigs of G.Skill 2133MHz Ripjaws DDR3 (max for the board). Now the CPU cooler goes on because of the overhang the RAM will not come out once the cooler is installed. A bracket bolts up from under the motherboard so my RAM, CPU cooler and CPU have to be installed with the motherboard out. (not so with the wimpy stock Intel CPU cooler). I used a Rosewill Gold Rated 450 watt Capstone power supply. I used max RAM so that I do not need virtual memory with my Samsung EVO SSD. This is a media center PC so very little in the way of software will ever be installed other than XBMC media center software.
This build went extremely well, almost 100% flawless. I had this motherboard a full week before the i7-4790k was released but the system powered up fine. I had connected an Ethernet cable to my LAN and went in the UEFI and ASRock has a built in mechanism to update the firmware right there via LAN. The update performed flawlessly and gave official 4790k support. I cleared CMOS and loaded defaults. The only quirk I found and a previous review pointed out that if I set max RAM for Shared Video, the system hangs and refuses to boot. I tried this 4 or 5 times with the result being a frozen system until a reset. I left it on auto.

Cons: UEFI does not allow selection of MAX video RAM without freezing system.

Could use 1 more fan header.
Only time will tell the reliability tale so I will wait
ASRock may make my "A-List" yet

Other Thoughts: I loaded Win 8.1 Pro x64 with Media Center. Loaded Chipset, wireless, LAN, Intel RST, and MEI software. I also use the original SSD tweaker to turn off virtual memory, hibernation and a dozen other things that shorten the life of an SSD and are not needed with 8+ gigs of RAM. There were about 2 gigs of Windows update patches that needed to be downloaded and applied to Win 8.1. Wow. I got my go to antivirus and malware scanner and automated imaging software installed too.
The Samsung EVO is not the fastest SSD but I do not care. I picked the Samsung EVO for price and reliability. I use a pair of 840Pros for my main workstation. I am truly amazed with this little board, CPU and SSD combo. It takes only 8 seconds from the moment I press the power button until I am looking at a fully loaded Windows 8.1 desktop. Sweet Zombie Gesus!!!!! I am not a fan of tiles so I use iobit Start Menu 8 to give me my desktop back. Luv it!!!!
I am using my favorite home theater keyboard, a Bluetooth Microsoft Entertainment Desktop 7000. I love this keyboard!!! It is full size keys for my fat fingering. I love the shape and built in mouse keys on the left and touch pad on the right. The ASRock motherboard has built in Bluetooth 4.0 and wireless AC. I do not use the wireless because I am accessing my movies from a file server and wireless has too much lag. The Bluetooth must use the same Antennae as the Wifi because it does not work beyond a foot without the external Antennae. The built in Blue tooth works better than Microsoft’s USB transmitter ever did. My mouse and keyboard are much faster and more responsive now. Thank you ASRock.
This system is connected to my 240Hz Samsung TV and my Logitech Z5500 surround speakers with a digital S/PDIF optical connector. I will eventually upgrade to a Samsung 8000 series Quad HD TV in the next 24 months as the prices are tumbling rapidly. It is my understanding that the 4790x HD4600 graphics supports 4k TV. I will make that judgment when I get one. My downstairs media center PC has a new 750ti super clocked Maxwell GPU and totally kills some Blu-ray material powered by and i5 CPU. This ASRock board has a full x16 PCIexpress slot and my Cooler master ITX case support full length double width Video cards.
Yes, ASRock has executed this form factor with perfection. They have created a board as rich as any I have seen with features:
ITX form factor, 16gb max RAM, x16 slot, SATA 3’s & M.2 for storage, Intel LAN chip, Wireless AC + Bluetooth, supports latest CPU’s, high end sound chip and capacitors, 8 pin P4 CPU power connector, USB and 1 P/S2 connector….Oh MY!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't find any flaws

Pros: This board is my first introduction to ASRock m-ITX product. My experience is mostly with m-ITX from MSI and ASUS. Couldn't find any flaw on this board and for the cost I'd dare say this is the best value on the Z97 line out of all the Z97 boards. Looks-wise it matches up to the old MSI Z77 m-ITX, good blues against a black PCB. On inputs and outputs this board stacks up offering M.2, SATA Express, AC Wifi, and Bluetooth 4.0. Components used seem to be above par, they advertise higher quality caps, chokes and mosfets. This is suppose to translate into less heat, more stability, and better overclockability. I was able to OC the 4670k to 4.5 stable, used an H100i for the testing. Time will tell if it holds but several rounds of gaming and with temps well under control I shouldn't need to worry.

Really like the HDMI-in feature so you can pass through an HDMI signal from a device like a tablet or phone. Audio works just fine. Audio playback in my bluetooth Sennheiser headset was good.

Cons: The only thing that could ruin a reputation for this board would be abnormally high failure rates. As long as this is not the case this board is a keeper considering you get all the Z97 sought after features for less than $140.00 in m-ITX format.

Other Thoughts: The blue G.Skill ram heatspreaders match up well with the blues on the board. One thing I like about this board is that it save money by focusing on whats important. No gimmicky audio features and no gimmicky ethernet features that don't gain you anything. If you like to OC and game and need m-ITX then this board is solid.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's got it all!

Pros: I love the looks of this board.. I have built several systems and have fallen for Mini ITX form factor. I’ve never ever seen one with so much stuff built in which is a huge plus. As a professional embedded SW engineer I usually end up wanting to stick some sort of a special feature in the box.. Which means I usually have to choose carefully.. this gives me a lot more room as most everything is built in. It also means that all the USB ports on the box won’t be eaten up and that I *won’t* have to use an active HUB (which don’t work with a lot of devices).. all of this is great for making a really small footprint PC.
One of the things to appreciate about this system is that because of all the built in features, the investment to get a decent working system is hundreds less than larges systems.. That includes the lower price of the small case, smaller power supply as you have decent built in video, bluetooth, and wifi (AC! – future proof) built in.
One thing that may be over looked is that the Bluetooth has 3.0 (high speed – up to 24 Mbit/s transfer rate – plenty for HD video much less music), and 4.0 which also allows for low energy so if you’re talking to peripherals on batteries they don’t get taxed too much on power.
Also – in the future proofing area, though it’s becoming more common is UEFI bios. If you are unfamiliar with it, it’s probably best described as a complete operating system residing in your bios, that your “regular” OS sits on top of (e.g. Windows, Linux, etc). One of the huge advantages of this is that your OS can use the device drivers written for UEFI and you won’t need OS specific ones. No matter what MB you get, I suggest getting a UEFI board as whenever they update OS’s you won’t have to toss the board as the mfg no longer updates the drivers for new OS’s. For this I was running W7, and experienced no problem other than those of my own creation.
I am not a big fan of performance statistic as I know they often cloud the more important aspects of products, and sales are often made on things you wouldn’t normally notice as that is where the marketing hype goes – so I refrain from it. I will say that you can build a scorchingly fast system with this board, though I prefer great performance and reasonable power. I build with i5 processors consuming 84W max as 90% of the time I am running applications that don’t require a processor that blows fire out the back of the box - like most occasional gamers anything more is useless to me.
I did not have an 802.11ac router setup for these tests so all I could do was verify that the system was connected and that 802.11g and 802.11n worked by connecting to different routers. I got a good strong signal for all connections and was impressed with it. Connecting direct with Ethernet via a cable modem I was able to get comparable rates with . Since that’s as fast as my modem goes, I can’t ask for much else.

Cons: It would have been nice if it supported Bluetooth V4.1 (2013) – as this may be the last incarnation of Bluetooth in a while – it would allow for some wireless phone signaling becomes more widespread. I’m him hoping this is mostly a FW update though I do not know if it requires and HW changes – none that I am aware of.
Some of the “Pros” may be echoed in the “Cons”, by that I mean even though the box may be really small, you will have to really work to get all the cables in the box connected – when you put the heat sink on your processor that eats up most of the available space to get to the board. That’s not a design flaw per se, but it is a reality in building the system. For me personally, the pain is worth the gain, but this may not be the ideal board to build into a system for a beginning system builder unless you have some technical chutzpa patients and like skinned knuckles.

Other Thoughts: I have a “large” rectangular Lian Li mini ITX case which allows more room than many mini ITX cases, I would not recommend a case any smaller. I’m sure it’s possible but at such as size you need to worry not only about airflow, but also the physical constraints of having to bend cables in such a small space and getting everything to fit.

Whenever I build a system, I end up spending way more that I originally ball parked. This board has been an exception since I really only had to buy memory (8GB DDR3 1333 and an i5-4590) and recycled an older case/PS and SSD. So.. hats off for this.. no wi-fi, BT, video card, etc – it’s a decent system at a decent price.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: For some reason my favorite feature about this board is the fact that you can update the UEFI firmware directly from UEFI interface as long as the computer has internet access.

Cons: After getting windows installed and setup, I swapped an EVGA 780 for an EVGA 780 ti to test some things. I had disabled wifi in the UEFI, but somehow the wifi card became enabled and my ethernet stopped working until resetting UEFI to factory and reconfiguring... The mouse and scrolling can be improved on in the UEFI, docked an egg for these things.

5 out of 5 eggsFeature packed

Pros: This is my second M-ITX board and I have to say that ASRock nailed it right on the money in terms of features and value for the dollar.
This is a full features motherboard that includes onboard Wi-Fi, 2 x DIMM slots which can handle Dual channel DDR3 3200+ memory with a max capacity of 16GB. The onboard chipset is an Intel Z97 which allows the use of Intel’s 4th and 5th generation Intel Core processors. Onboard graphics supports up to 3 monitors via DVI, HDMI, and/or Display port each boasting a max resolution of 1920×1200, 4K x 2K (4096x2304), 4K x 2K (4096x2304 or 3840x2160) respectively.
Audio comes way of the Realtek ALC1150 chipset which features 7.1channel HD audio. The use of Nichion fine gold audio caps really deliver a fine crisp sound. The need for high end audio cards are not needed on this board unless one wishes to have a finer attunement to their music and movies. The audio uses a TI NE5532 Premium headset amplifier so one can use high end headsets with this motherboard and not have any issues as it does support up to 600ohm headsets. I was able to hook up my BeyerDynamic DT 880 and use them without any issues, I will note that I did have to turn the volume up slightly higher than on my main PC.
Onboard Wi-Fi supports 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual channel 2.4/5GHz. Bundled with the motherboard is a wireless bridge receiver antenna which works quite well. I have not had any issues with its connectivity nor drop outs like my other wireless card on my main PC. One of the added benefits of this board is the built in Bluetooth connectivity, I was able to connect my cellphone and import/export files with ease, This is due to the onboard support of Bluetooth 4.0 and 3.0+ high speed class II connectivity.

The motherboard has 6 Sata ports, all of which are not edge mounted like on previous Asrock boards I have owned, but with the right sata connectors this will not be a problem. I utilized all Sata connections but 2 because the cables I have are right angled and would not fit without hitting and blocking the memory slots. This can be a negative to most people, but again with the proper connector you will not run into this problem. I have sata cables that stack on top of one another but I am currently using them in my main PC, but they would have worked for this motherboard and avoided hitting the memory slots. I connected my Sony Blueray drive, and 3 separate hard drives running in Raid 0 plus 1 as backup. It is nice to see that a board this size offers raid capabilities as my last micro board did not and I had to utilize a separate raid controller. Raid once setup properly works rather nice and did not give me any issues in the initial setup nor running it. In the past I would have issues with the controller or drives dropping out but not with this board.

Cons: I find that having to update the bios right off the start is a nuisance and as such should have already come updated from the manufacturer. When buying components for a new build one wants to be able to set everything up and get running as soon as possible, but thank goodness for Asrock crash proof bios update it was rather pain free and simple to do, just a hindrance.
I also do not like that the issue of the sata cabled depending on the type you use can be a hindrance, but that’s just me nitpicking and not a real issue if used with the right cables like the ones coupled with the motherboard.
I would like to see a PCI-e riser included with this motherboard as things start to get really cramped when everything is all packaged in, this is to allow the remote mounting of the graphics card without hindering airflow top the motherboard or the card itself. Also, my graphics card is watercooled and seemed to stress the motherboard a little due to the size and weight of it, so utilizing a riser I would be able to mount the card off the motherboard and not have to worry about stress or risk of something breaking.

Other Thoughts: I have to say that overall I am really impressed with this motherboard, after my second Asrock motherboard I did not think I would use them again. My wife and I both game a lot and being limited with a high quality motherboard that does offer stable overclocks is hard to find without entering the gaming specific motherboards and higher price points. But I should have known Asrock would find a way to have a price conscious consumer friendly motherboard that can do it all. My current motherboard is an Asrock X58 Extreme which handled my overclocks great, but at the time it was purchased it was over 200 so it’s nice to see this board can actually overclock better than my current one and also comes in at a fairly decent price point.
In terms of reliability, we will see how well my 4.98Ghz overclock holds up with this board but so far it has been rock solid stable for over 4 days now. This includes heavy gaming and video coding, which both generally tax a system pretty hard.

5 out of 5 eggsFuture Proof, easy build

Pros: Very good packaging - a soft foam surround for the motherboard was a very nice touch.

Upgradeability for the future, it will support Broadwell CPUs, has a M.2 connector, a sata express connector and the wireless/bluetooth module could be swapped out as well.

Running "value priced" DDR2400 and it seems like it is happy, so the motherboard must be pretty solid/well regulated as cheapy high speed RAM is often unstable unless your motherboard is pretty good.

High Quality components.

Board layout is reasonable and intelligent, no "stupid" choices.

A/C + Blu Tooth

BIOS supports full overclocking capabilities. Quite a robust power supply for an ITX board.

Cons: Quirk with Onboard Video in BIOS - Bios allows you to allocate up to 1024 gb of RAM to the integrated video. Using a Intel i3-4350 (HD4600) and the board will not post if you set the onboard video to the max 1024, but works fine on all other memory sizes. Unable to tell if this is an issue with the CPU or the Motherboard, ... will report back when I hear from tech Support

Other Thoughts: I am very impressed by this board. I have traditionally limited my selection to ASUS, GIGABYTE and INTEL boards, but this board is every bit their equal in terms of features, polish, and value for money.

4 out of 5 eggsNice little motherboard

Pros: I'll start by saying this is my first Asrock board and micro for that matter. If you are familiar with full ATX this board it's tiny or in this case mini.

The layout is very nice, little cramped but nothing that will stop you from using the stock Intel heat sink and some smaller but decent aftermarket like Noctua low profile since this is designed with HTPC in mind.

Unlike most ATX boards the SATA plugs are not on the edge but on the board pointing out. Not an issue, my old Gigabyte board was set up that way and cables are easy to bend/route generally.

The ALC1150 with the Nichicon gold audio caps sounds pretty good actually for on-board. The TI headphone amp should help as well for higher end Sennheiser, Beyer, Grado, etc.

Generally the fit and finish is nice, no issues. The backplate fit my Antec case just fine.

I grabbed all the drivers straight from Asrock beforehand and skipped the CD so I could pick and choose what I wanted.

The board did ship with the original bios 1.00 and I updated to 1.10 which was super easy with their instant flash, even more simple then Gigabyte.

The included wireless receiver/bridge is not a gimmick, it actually works quite well. I just had to set it up with my information and it connected to my router and speeds were as good as my Linksys bridge.This is a nice added bonus if you want wireless and saves you some coin in the process.

Asrock has quite a few apps that look interesting. I generally skip most of them but they might come in handy at some point.

M.2 connector on the back of the board, sadly it can only use a 2242 due to length and none exist yet, only 2280 which are almost twice as long.

Cons: This could be an issue for people but it only has one fan header. If you have a standard case with push/pull then you have two fans and it only has a plug for one. There is room on the board, I am sure another or even three could have been included.

Nitpick here but the RST on their site is, the latest from Intel is so I grabbed it from there.

For the price I suppose including 4 SATA cables [two straight, two right angle] would have been nice but in reality somebody building with this is not going to have 4 drives but maybe two in raid with a blue-ray burner/player so a bit of skimping there.

Packaging, I realize they are trying to keep things small but the board is really jammed into the box with the manual, cd and plate all laying in top and the lid was bulging out.

They might want to add another 1/2 inch of depth. The board itself has foam around it and 4 zip ties, that was very nice and the first time I seen foam padding used to protect the board.

Other Thoughts: Before I put windows 7-64 on it I tried Ubuntu and Mint and had no issues. I have no desire to try 8/8.1 but there are a few settings like secure boot with EUFI you need to be aware of in bios.

The board feels like good quality, everything works so far as intended and setting it up was painless which is what you expect when you get new hardware but not always the case with the latest tech.

The 60A alloy chokes and 12K platinum Japanese caps [probably Chemi-con or Rubycon] might be overkill but better over built then under built.

Only two DIMM slots so a max of 16GB but this is expected for this type of board so it's not a con but should be noted.

Only one PCIE lane [16x]so your somewhat limited. If you want to game then one GPU, a upper end sound card if Realtek is not good enough for you or an add in card [raid controller, etc]

I mentioned the m.2, this can be a pro or con. It's a pro since it will be out of sight, a con if it fails the board has to be removed from the case.

I might seriously consider Asrock for a future build unless I run into issues down the road and change my impression about them.
