Easy set up but...

Pros: Everything was easy to migrate from my old set up (windows C: drive and other drives worked just fine after installing on new mobo Win10)

Cons: Continually getting occasional boot error b4. Have to restart over and over till it actually boots. Works fine when windows is loaded but still get the b4 error code. Something about a legacy rom boot error. Later research said it was my graphics card, which I replaced and still got the error. Been trying all sorts of things and haven't come up with any answers.

BIOS for this MoBo can get a little confusing for less experienced tweekers.

Other Thoughts: Also peeved that the price dropped so soon after I purchased this product. By almost 100$

I would probably go with a x470 chipset if I end up having to replace this. And I wouldn't be going with asrock anymore due to lack of support that I have seen and seen other having.

Great Board, But.....

Pros: This is a really nice full featured board. It does everything I need to do.

Cons: But, right after I bought This board the price was reduced by twenty bucks. Now I have to run around and waste my time filling out a rebate form and mailing it in snail mail and maybe just maybe I get the rebate back. I'm not holding my breath. The last time I tried to apply for a rebate it was denied even though I followed all their rules. How about Newegg just automatically issuing a partial refund?

Other Thoughts: The Board gets 5 eggs, it's great.
The rebate process gets -5
I'm giving the product 5 eggs, it's not the boards fault they are playing with the pricing.

Looks nice, lasted 2 hours

Pros: Easy install, well laid out

Cons: Lacks USB 3.1 gen 2 header
lasted 2 hours, from one software install restart to the next the computer died. Spent three hours swapping RAM sticks from slot to slot, moving video cards to other PCIE connectors, putting in a known good video card and re-seating everything. Won't even display the POST screen.
Will be returning. My first experience with ASRock products.

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.
• Clear the CMOS.
• Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan.
• Test with single memory module.
• Reseat video card firmly and 6+6 PCIE power (if applied).
• 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.

Great and works with windows 7

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing

Other Thoughts: It does work with windows 7. I had no problems loading. I had to use MSI smart tool to make a bootable usb with win7 install ISO.
Then installed windows7 to hard disk, loaded win 7 64bit drivers for it. And then Samsung Drivers for my 970 evo nvme M.2. Then used samsung data migration and sent everything from hd to the ssd. changed boot to SSD and hello windows 7 installed on ssd. PS, i did have to run a file WUFUC to update win 7 without getting a msg that my hardware is not compatable. CPU is Ryzen 7 1700 65w

Good Motherboard, Worst Support on the Planet

Pros: Easy Setup, great features, seems like quality build

Cons: I missed that it didn't have RAID 5 support, but I ended up using Storage Spaces in Windows 10, which solved my problem.

Other Thoughts: If I had it to do over again, I would have bought an ASUS or Gigabit motherboard. Technical Support is non-existent. I have an issue with error installing the Realtek Windows 10 app, which is supposed to auto-install once the Realtek driver installs. There is a way you're supposed to install manually, but it errors out. I have opened two cases and tweeted them twice. I'm just going to tweet them twice a day until I get help. ASUS and Gigabit would have been worst case a few days.

How I Lost $100+ : 1) Getting into BIOS with Certain PCI 3.0 Graphics Cards is Impossible + 2) Ryzen 2700x Crashes Under Load on this Particular Board

Pros: + 1/2 egg for honoring the rebate and 1/2 for shipping with a newer 4.4 BIOS in December 2018, allowing me to install a Ryzen 2700x without first getting a loaner processor

Cons: First of all, I was forced to spend $100+ in a hurry at Christmastime to buy a graphics card that would run on this, thanks to Dr. Debug code B2 ("Legacy option rom initialization") preventing me from posting to BIOS. I was only able to use my original GPU after booting into BIOS with the new one and changing the PCI Oprom settings from the default of UEFI *or* Legacy to Legacy Only. After the extensive troubleshooting on my part failed, I was told in the ASRock tech forums that it was *my* fault for using a "Legacy" graphics card that isn't compatible with CSM booting, but the EVGA NVIDIA GT 740 I was using is a PCI 3.0, UEFI-enable card that hardly qualifies as legacy.

Secondly, it crashed like clockwork whenever the processor ran on more then 3 or 4 cores; initially the system would just shut off without warning, but after a round of Windows Updates it began reliably generating minidumps with the same error, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL on pci.sys and ntoskrnl.exe. This is a known issue that anyone can look into further. I did extensive monitoring with CPU-Z, GPU-Z, HW-Info, Furmark and the like and determined there definitely wasn't a heat issue with my Ryzen 2700x. I methodically tested many potential fixes, including disabling core parking in Windows and turning off symmetric multithreading, changing the power options and PCI-E settings and the like in BIOS to no avail. Another user with a similar issue was treated rudely in the ASRock forums (some of the posters there will simply justify anything ASRock does), who wrongly said that ASRock doesn't support Windows 7 on this board. This is false; ASRock makes drivers just for Win7. It is also often said that Ryzen 2700x is not supported by AMD on windows 7, but this too is incorrect; they've left it up to the motherboard manufacturers and Microsoft. Others have managed to make 2700x work on Windows 7 on other boards. Either ASRock's drivers are defective when used in combination with Win7 or Microsoft has introduced flaws in their OS that renders Ryzen 2700x inoperable, one of the two. At least at the time I bought my equipment, there was no warning in the ASRock ads or website against using this board in combination with Win7 and 2700x.

The good news is that I was able to salvage some benefit out of the purchase by putting my hardware in a Windows 2016 Server Essentials installation, where it has not crashed yet (at least if I don't push my 32 GB of Corsair 3200 RAM past about 3066). The bad news is that it cost me an extra $100 for a new graphics card + many days lost to troubleshooting. I originally invested in this to save time, not lose it. I've always been happy with ASRock in the past, but will be little more cautious about buying from them in the future.

Dear Valued ASRock Customer,

Thank you for purchase and review.
For the Nvidia GT 740 with error B2, please try update the GPU FW to check if it address the issue.
For the crash issues, please load the BIOS setting default.
Test with 1 x memory, switching another memory if problem still persist.
Check the CPU is not overheating.

Worked great... until it didn't

Pros: -Good design
-Easy to setup
- Wifi intergrated
- Supports m.2

Cons: - Warranty is only 1 year
- In case of problem Asrock has terrible customer support
- Difficult to troubleshoot

Other Thoughts: This was my first ASROCK product and at first I was pleasantly surprised, it seemed to have a good quality and an overall low price. However, after having this motherboard for a little more than a year and a half, it simply stopped working altogether. While at first I believed the issue was with my power supply, I soon realized after some tests that unfortunately my motherboard had fried and was no longer usable. After trying to get in touch with Asrock for several weeks now, I have yet to receive an answer.

Honestly, if you want to buy this, just make sure you get a 3 year warranty and not from Asrock, otherwise you might as well toss that money into a fire.
