Guys were drawing 100w+ while in bios through 65w chips. (fm2 a75 itx)
Asrock f'd up. Thats why theres a revision and a better replacement board. Get off your high horse just because your single unrelated setup hasn't yet had an issue.


As for my setup, I was using a down blowing cooler with an upgraded fan (120x25mm), and even added vrm sinks to it to try and keep them cool. The a75 itx was a 3+1 setup. My asus cheapie fm1 board's vrms run cooler under full load than the asrock board did idling. And the only way for the gpu to be stable with any overclock was to have AXTU auto enabled. Turn it off, crash. Leave it on, stable.

I've ran a few ASRock boards, both FM, one FM1 and maybe one FM2, can't remember. I've had no problems with either. Just because you and some other people had problems doesn't mean everyone is having problem or the boards are trash. Maybe the problem was you? The majority of people didn't have problems. Get off your high horse just because your single related setup had an issue.

If you read the whole discussion you will see I acknowledged the FM boards problem,just pointing out to Chris ASRock can make a quality 4+1.As you said yourself,they have remedied the FM boards issue,just like MSI has remedied their prior VRM issues.Every man. has some issues,that does not automatically make a new board coming out crap.That is what I take exception to.

Also Isn't ASRock just ASUS lite? Pretty sure ASUS owns them and purposefully pushes them down market.

Not saying they're bad boards. I had an intel chipset Extreme4 that was a pretty nice, well performing board, but I dont have much experience with them. Seem to be decent quality with excellent bang for buck.

Asrock was a subsidiary of ASUS, making cheap low cost products under a different name. eventually Asus sold Asrock off to another umbrella corporation in 2010. It now competes directly with ASUS. So in a way, yes it was owned by asus. but it was never really part of asus... and was simply used to make mbs in the bargain segment to protect asus's market image as a high quality board manufacturer.

Sorry for digging an old thread but I have to make my point across on the FM2 boards on general:
Asus - Pricey but at least the board and bios works.
Asrock - Generally fine apart from the A75 ITX which I already seen failures locally and will personally avoid. The A85X ITX is great thou.
MSI - The A75 ITX was a nightmare. Constant 2/3 boards will DOA on me. Serious bulls**t
Gigabyte - Build is the best but bios.... STEP UP ON YOUR BIOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! My god they are they worst out of the lot, Tonnes of ram didn't want to run at rated with the UP4. Constant no boot. frown.gif.
Broke.
