High Density Glass Fabric PCB

What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity or whatever you’d like to name it. And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit. Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.

Check the BIOS version before purchasing a 7th Generation processor!! 5/25/2020 12:15:50 PM

Overall Review: My board did not support 7th generation processors out of the box. The product description failed to mention this and ASRock's own website says that it supports 6th and 7th gen processors. BIOS version 7.2 or higher is required for 7th generation support. Yours may or may not have the updated BIOS. Keep this in mind before purchasing.

I ended up ordering a 6th generation Celeron to get it up an running so I can update the BIOS and install my 7th gen Core i5. Since I have not yet received it I am not yet able to get the board running, so I cannot give any performance-based information.

I've never dealt with a defective mb on all my other builds. PC starts but no graphics signal. 4/23/2020 3:47:15 PM

Pros: If it worked I might list some pros.

Cons: MB appears DOA. Monitor is receiving no signal from both iGPU or PCie. Tried all the connection types and several different monitors. Not my first build but so far my most frustrating.

Overall Review: Not impressed with ASRock.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear William,

We sincerely apologize 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.
• Clear the CMOS.
• Check the mainboard’s CPU contact pins are normal (should be pointing same way and pattern).
• Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan if socket pins are normal.
• 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
We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

Nice Motherboard 4/22/2020 2:54:55 PM

Pros: - 6 SATA connectors
- Better construction than the one I was replacing
- Spike protection on the inputs
- Ample USB ports

Cons: - Only supports Gen 6 CPUs
- 2 Case Fan power connections locations a little inconvenient for my case
- CPU Fan power connector a little close for my after-market cooler
- Couldn't figure out how to get it to boot off a USB flash drive.. installed OS from a DVD-ROM

Overall Review: I bought this to replace an old MSI motherboard that eventually failed over a year ago. All around it's been a great replacement. Handles more RAM, connectors are solid but not super stiff, which is awesome. Doesn't seem to recognize my old RAM, but that could've gotten fried along with the old MB. A great little beauty for the price.
