ASROCK are nothing less than shocking when it comes to compatibility....
Their boards are ridiculous and are an obvious spin off the ASUS line, except using cheap components.
I test boards and components for a living and this whole ASRock has stepped up its game buisness? is just plain rubbish.
Theyre boards are cheap and always will be. Most RAM isn't even compatible with their boards let alone anything above 2200mhz yet they state that they can do 2800mhz+
Weve had 100's of ASRock board Returns from customers complaining about their cheap ASRock boards.
Just because ASRock sell, doesn't mean that theyre products are good.
BTW... One of ASUS' founders is actually the head chairman of ASRock. The company was made on purpose to milk the market and kinda under quote other leading board makers like gigabyte. ASUS and ASRock were always one. ASUS just did the dodgy.
ASRock now think that their boards come close to HIGH-END and are trying to charge premium $.....i'll say from experience and RMA's/Returns etc... that the asrock boards are rubbish.
EDIT: Show me anyone with an ASRock board that has anything above 2200mhz RAM frequency using the multiplier or XMP..... BET U CANT.
This guy knows what is talking about i always said the same to anyone ready to buy AsRock.
They divided some years ago , so Asus to be the high end and AsRock to be the low-end experimental branch.
Several years ago Asus was a good brand and they couldn t afford to make crappy mobos (and other hardware) , but for some time already the cheaper Asus stuff is the same quality wise with AsRock products so why wouldn t they make 2 As become one.
It is As quality no doubt about it,
The support for my Asus Xonar D1 card was and is deep under the seas ,Creative rules driver wise compared to Asus and we all know the Creative support
