5 out of 5 eggsCan't ask for a better mini-itx

Pros: HDMI in/out, DP, DVI
Digital optical out, ALC1150 audio
Intel gigabit, wifi-AC
Z97 chipset

Cons: For my HTPC use, not a thing to complain about.

Other Thoughts: This board is the basis of my Windows Media Center+Plex mini-itx box that hides behind the TV and includes these other energy efficient components:
SIlverstone Milo ML06B mini-itx HTPC case
HDPlex 160w nano size fanless DC-ATX power supply
i3-4130T 35w TDP processor w/HD4400 graphics
2x Crucial Ballistix Tactical low profile 1.35v 1600@8-8-8-24 RAM
Avermedia Duet ATSC tuner + HDHomerun Prime cablecard tuner
Samsung 850 Pro 256gb SSD / 4TB WD AV-GP HDD
Inteset PC-IRS5-01 external IR receiver / INT-422 remote

2 out of 5 eggsHigh failure rate

Pros: Feature rich, (relatively) inexpensive. Boots fast compared to other ITX boards.

Cons: Power loss issue is problematic, plus high failure rates on the ASRock Z87E-ITX and Z97E-ITX boards in general.
The first Z87E-ITX was DOA, the second was fine. The first Z97E-ITX worked great for 6 hours then died a hard death and refused to power on. Went back to second Z87E-ITX in the meantime, but it's a bit flaky now- could be on its last legs.

Other Thoughts: It's great when it works, but whether you get one that works (and stays working) is a gamble.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsWorthy ITX motherboard that is full of great features

Pros: Works great. Easy setup. Great Technical support!

Cons: First board failed after 4 months of use (minus one egg).

Other Thoughts: The first board I had setup and worked great for the first 4 months of use. Then, one day, it failed to even boot up. I sent an email to ASROCK tech support and waited a couple of weeks with no reply. I called their office in CA and was transferred directly to tech support where we ran through a couple of quick tests (no patronizing step by step scripts, just right down to business treating me like the technically savvy person I am) and was given RMA authorization. I sent the board back, received a new board a week later. Plugged it up, and it worked except with my video card. Called tech support and we tried a few different troubleshooting steps and some BIOS changes and my video card working. I am very happy (minus the initial board failure) and highly recommend ASRock!

1 out of 5 eggsDead on arrival

Pros: Makes a very effective paperweight or doorstop

Cons: The one that I got was DOA. Worse, Newegg has no record of me ever buying it, so I cant send it back for a refund! What the hell Newegg?

Other Thoughts: You're better off lighting a $100 bill on fire. It will use up less of your time.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Gregory,

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.
• Unplug the ATX power, remove all components from mainboard.
• Remove the mainboard from chassis, place it on mainboard’s box.
• Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan.
• Test with single memory module (non-ECC, un-buffered).
• Test with onboard video.
• Connect the monitor.
• Plug the 24 + 8 or 4 pins ATX power.
• Connect the chassis power switch to mainboard.
• Turn on the power to check if its post.

If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/Support/tsd.asp
We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggs2 years later

Pros: BEST ITX MB EVER

Settings are fantastic.
Wifi is great.
Bluetooth is great.
Features are perfect.
Everything works wonderfully... USB 3, SATA III.
Easy to flash bios.
Small....
Overclocks like a champ

Cons: Wish the wifi/bt card was built into the MB and they had a m2 or msata slot on the board instead.
It's no longer available.... :((((

Other Thoughts: Maybe next time I'll write reviews sooner LOL

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great for my odd build

Pros: WiFi works well
Display port 1.2 support for i7 video works well

Cons: Connectors for external antenna a little flimsy, but they work.

Other Thoughts: Mostly I just wanted to pass along a configuration that seems to work pretty well. I wasn't building a gaming machine, but rather wanted a machine that looks nice, is dead quiet, and goes very fast as a development machine. So I've coupled this board with a Xigmatek Nebula, an i7-4790K, a Corsair CX 500, and the Intel BXTS13X liquid cooler. I've seen the Nebula criticized for inefficient internal layout, but from a looks perspective, it's hard to beat. The plastic on top could be higher quality, but everything else looks great. The CX500M would have been a better choice, but the CX500 works. The real trick is the Intel cooler. I had to do a bit of Dremel surgery to mount the radiator to the back of the box, but it fits very nicely using nothing more than the mounting hardware that came with it. I can't see any way it can go inside. It's probably too delicate for a gaming machine that will get moved around, but for a stationary machine, it works great. I can overclock the CPU to 4.6 and it's running right now at a cool 28C with the fan on the lowest setting. The pump is louder than the fan and it's barely audible. I'm still looking for the best RAM so I have nothing to add there. I've got a Samsung 840 EVO 1TB inside and it works great.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mini ITX Board

Pros: It works and does everything advertised.

Cons: My main reason for this review is to alert people to two facts. These are stated in the manual but I wanted to share my experiences to make things clear:

- The M.2 slot on this board does not support PCI Express 3.0. I installed a 512GB Samsung 950 PRO M.2 drive and only got 750MB/s throughput. If you are looking for an Mini-ITX board that supports these drives, ASRock makes an x99 LGA2011 board that supports PCI Express 3.0 x4.
- This board does not officially support full-sized (80mm) M.2 drives but I was able to make it fit in my case (NCase M1).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board for the money.

Pros: All the features from the Micro ATX version of this board that I needed, plus WiFi which was handy. Super easy overclocking.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace the Micro ATX version because I couldn't fit all my fans in my Air 240 case. This board is tiny and gave me the room I needed. It was literally plug and play from the bigger version.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: Good ITX motherboard. I like their support for the Broadwell CPUs without a bios upgrade. I had no problem installing the i7-5775C CPU. Good GUI bios and I was able to use my RF keyboard/mouse on it (Logitech). Controlling PWM fans fro the bios is very useful. It recognized my Areca RAID card on the 16X PCIe slot. It has 2 USB 2.0 connectors which is very useful if you are using the Corsair 80i/100i AIO closed loop water coolers.

Cons: It could use some more fan connectors. I had to use the NZXT Grid fan expander.

I didn't like the WiFi antennas -- they are too bulky. I don't know they didn't just the traditional plastic ones. I don't use WiFi so it didn't really affect me.

I didn't like foam packaging of the motherboard. It was very hard to cut the ties that bound the motherboard to the anti-stat bag.

Other Thoughts: Overall an excellent motherboard. I used the i7-5775C Broadwell CPU and 16 Gb of Corsair Dominator 1866 MHz RAM (CMD16GX3M2A1866C9) along with the Corsair H80i AIO WC and this machine was very fast.
