3 out of 5 eggssome trouble

Pros: Z97 chipset, mini-itx size, price. good wifi

Cons: I have had some trouble getting the audio to work under Ubuntu Linux. The ACL1150 audio is somewhat new and does not work for me under Ubuntu 14.04.

Also, I have a problem with the USB ports when booting into Windows 7 after have previously run Linux. The USB mouse and keyboard do not work. I have to reboot by pressing the power button. Then if I go into the BIOS and navigate around a little bit the USB ports will be active when I boot into Windows.

Other Thoughts: I will probably replace this board with an Asus equivalent. That is what I should have purchased in the first place.

Manufacturer Response:

Unfortunately, we do not provide the Linux OS drivers, which depends on chipset developer.

5 out of 5 eggsA stellar mini-ITX motherboard

Pros: Two builds with this motherboard so far.

Easy and completely painless installation and setup. Absolutely zero BIOS or driver issues.

Worked perfectly upon boot-up with my Core i7 4790.

Recognized the 16 GB (2x8GB) of DDR3 1600 with no issues whatsoever.

Wi-Fi works perfectly. I get five bars signal strength at all times (which beats the discrete Wi-Fi card in my previous main system by a country mile).

Compared to other mini-ITX motherboards that I own, this one is superb.

Cons: None that I'm aware of so far.

Other Thoughts: Great value for the money. Has the look and feel of higher-priced models.

I've just ordered a third one to use in a Pentium G3258 build. I'm looking forward to finally having an opportunity to overclock that CPU to see what it can do.

3 out of 5 eggsWifi don't work properly

Pros: - Z97 mini itx with lots of features.
- 4K supports.

Cons: - Wifi don't work properly after downloaded the latest driver from Asrock web, i have Asus ac router and received only 6.5 Mb/s with this built-in wifi module and flimsy antenna, i plugged in an external ac wifi usb adapter and received 867 Mb/s.
- I haven't receive my $ rebate as promised after 7 weeks.

Other Thoughts: This is my first Asrock mobo and i'm somewhat disappointed, i've had very good experience with Asus and Gigabyte mobo in the passed.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat "bang for your buck" motherboard

Pros: First time ITX and this is a cool little mobo
- Z97 tops the list
- Easy driver download website for builds like mine without an optical drive
- Already-built WIFI/bt module
- RAM slots have one stationary side for easy installation
- Great audio card
- Many many USB ports

Cons: There aren't very many (or they just aren't that big of a deal)
- Flimsy WIFI antenna wires instead of the two black prong antennae
- CPU fan header location made installing an H100i in a Corsair 250D a bit scary but not that big of a deal

Other Thoughts: Great quality with a budget price

5 out of 5 eggsmy build went smoothly

Pros: i found this board to be easy to build with. connections were well located. it arrived with the latest bios installed.

i think the asus bios is a little clearer

Cons: i found it a little confusing to verify my ram speed and select XMP profiles, but jist a little.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: Wifi 802.11AC
PS2 port for legacy keyboards/mice
Colors were great, matched well with GSkill Ares
BIOS was easy to navigate

Cons: The layout of the connectors could be better. Cable management is about impossible since you use connectors all over the board. So it makes it a bit messier but I won't count this against the board as it performs well

4 out of 5 eggsWhat Can You Expect From a MITX

Pros: Everything has been working perfectly.
It's blue, perfect for blue ricers.

Cons: A lot of the input locations are very awkward, especially when working with a cpu heat sink such as the Noctua NH-L12.
The wiring becomes very awkward and and tight especially where the SATA sockets are located.
The chassis fan socket is also too close to the cpu socket causing a difficult installation once the heat sink is placed on top first.
Also the description about how this motherboard holds 2 chassis fan sockets is false, there is only 1 socket.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat board

Pros: Love the new itx form factor. For its size this board gives you an enormous amount of options. Packaging was fine and delivery was prompt.

Cons: Wish it had a few more onboard usb ports, but it's no big deal.

Other Thoughts: If you're interested in an itx build this is a fantastic component that I highly recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsperfect for tiny server

Pros: M.2 socket for SSD
AC and Bluetooth on a m-pcie
external antennas
High speed DDR3 support
6 SATA ports
SATA express (though I don't use it)
Fully Linux supported
runs cool

Cons: SATA express takes up a total of 4 SATA ports, haven't quite figured out why manufacturers would do that
RAM slots close together could make install difficult with wide ram heat syncs, I went with a standard heat sync width to avoid this
secondary power connector is in an odd spot, this makes routing air and cables a bit more difficult

Other Thoughts: The system:

This mobo
Norco ITX-S4 server cube case
Core i5-4590s processor
Team Xtreme 8GB DDR3 2400
MyDigitalSSD 64GB super boot drive 42mm SATA3 M.2 SSD
350Watt flexATX PSU
4x4TB storage drives
Running Xubuntu with FreeNAS
