1 out of 5 eggsWorked for 3 months, now it won't boot

Pros: Easy to use BIOS. Good manual. Everything worked out of the box.

Cons: After three months of light use, it no longer will boot up. No video, no beep codes, nothing. Contacted ASRock through their customer support website a week ago and am still waiting to hear back. Not really impressing me with your customer service ASRock. 3 year warranty is only good if you actually contact your customers.

Other Thoughts: Bought this board to build a SFF gaming computer that is connected to my home entertainment system. It worked great for 3 months.

At this point, I can't recommend this product or ASRock at all. If their customer support ever contacts me (besides the automated email response you get) and my board gets RMA'd, I'll update this post.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Bang for the Buck

Pros: ITX, Wireless, M.2, best design for Noctua CPU Heatsinks.

Cons: Kinda weird RAM Seating, Only one 3-pin fan plug in on motherboard.

Other Thoughts: So.... here we are after a year (I Bought mine last December) and I can't be happier with this motherboard. This was a LEAP OF FAITH on my part, as I've heard both great and terrible stories about ASRock over the years, but I wanted to give them a fair shot since I'd never had one personally.

Just for the record I got this Motherboard when the rating was only 3 out of 5 stars, and at that time this motherboard was only $79.00 (What a GREAT DEAL!) It has all of the great features you'd expect out of a great motherboard, like M.2 support, gigabit LAN, and even 7.1 analog out. (Which I sooo wish ASUS would have in ITX mobos)

Anyway, back to the main point. The software is GREAT, whoever says otherwise obviously haven't had to deal with the "old school" mouse-less Bios or ever had to input anything into a "run" prompt before. (Basically, if you don't have knowledge of the BIOS, don't try to mess with one)

All of the features that came with this motherboard have been working perfectly, with this computer running around 5 hours a day, 365 days a year. I haven't had one piece of this motherboard fail on me yet; which if I'm being honest, shouldn't be a "PRO" since motherboard should last around 3-4 years. Especially if they are made out of "Military Grade" components like ASRock, MSI, and ASUS all claim they are.

On the Negative side, as I stated above the RAM seating was a bit "weird". And by weird, I mean that only one side of the RAM slots actually fold down, so it was a bit hard to position the RAM into the slots correctly so that when the folded tab was snapped back into place, the RAM was seated correctly and made a nice snug "Click" when secured in place. The only other thing I could complain about on this board is a personal gripe. I have about 3-4 fans in my ITX case. 2 in front, one in the back, and one on the top. unfortunately for me, this motherboard only has 2 Fan connections... and one is designated for the CPU (The 4 pin). So I had to have my custom cable guy rig me up a "fan cable" along with my custom power cables which costed a bit extra money; but with the way this motherboard has performed so far, I think an extra 5 bucks was well worth it.

All in all this is a great motherboard. And I think that they raised the price because of how good this motherboard is. If you are looking for a great motherboard, with all of the features in "Main Stream" but in an ITX size; this is your motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsMy first/last time buying ASRock

Pros: AC wifi included. HDMI in/out.

Cons: Dead after 2 months only!! the ASRock software is complicated, slow and freezes a lot.

Other Thoughts: I usually go with ASUS mobos but this time decided to give ASRock a try. It was the biggest mistake. it worked seamlessly for 2 months and now just died. The computer have always been cooled and clean. I didn't even OC yet. Tried all the methods possible to fix it (Reset CMOS, reseat RAM and CPU, replaced PSU) and still it wont boot and get stuck into the boot loop cycle.

I contacted the ASRock for RMA but still didnt hear back.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: M.2 slot, ITX, AC WiFi

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I have this in a Silverstone FT03 Mini (item# N82E16811163197) with a 4790k and ZOTAC GTX 970 (item# N82E16814500362). My boot drive is a Transcend 256 GB M.2 SSD (item# N82E16813157504 ) that attaches to the back of the motherboard. This board has been solid, if you're looking for a compact board with the features this one offers, don't hesitate. I love the fact that I can use the M.2 SSD, this board combo'd with the M.2 I mentioned before reads at 321 MB/s and writes at 310 MB/s, and it does that without using a SSD/HDD bay. My case is very compact, it allows for a single 2.5" and a single 3.5" drive, with this board I managed to get a third in there since this has the slot on the backside of the motherboard where it sits between the board and the case. Did I mention I love this motherboard?

5 out of 5 eggsFirst purchase from AsRock

Pros: Great motherboard. I would buy from AsRock again. UEFI is easy to navigate. POST of first try. Comes with a case badge and a detailed manual and good driver support online.

Cons: Wish it came with more sata cables, comes with 2 only. The m.2 slot on the rear of the motherboard only supports 42mm and 30mm m.2 ssds. I used the Superbootdrive purchased from A-maze-on for 99.99 256gb. It works.

Other Thoughts: I like AsRock's older color scheme, black & gold. It was different. Need more versatile colors from the manufacturers. Not everyone wants a red, blue, or green build. Mine was purple for my daughter.
