Pros: Great price, onboard wifi, Z77
Cons: Cheap construction, flimsy PCB, dead after a simple cooler install, warranty nightmare, very poorly explained service.
This board came from a friend on OCN shipping it from his local microcenter. Originally my previous board didn't support a 3770k, which I needed for workstation stuff. However when this board came in it also supported overclocking. I installed windows on it and drivers, and about 5 days later I purchased an H100i. I popped it in my bitfenix prodigy after a simple cooler install, no visible issues. GPU fan failed, no lights on board, nothing on screen. After several hours of trouble shoot I take the rig apart to find no visible damage. I contact Asrock who tells me to go through a bunch of basic troubleshooting, and then contact microcenter about an instore warranty. Well Micro center doesn't have one. Well Asrock tells me okay, ship the board to us at MY expense, and if there is physical damage on the board or open box. So basically, spend 40 dollars in shipping twice, or spend 90 bucks + potentially more to have it replaced and have my warranty cut to three months.
This is very not acceptable to me, and frankly has heavily tarnished my intel experience. I seen many users in the prodigy club having mixed opinions on this board, however I firmly believe that under a week of use at stock clocks is essentially DOA, I am now still engaged in this warranty night mare, and honestly, I doubt I'll buy Asrock again. Go gigabyte.
