Some reviews for the AsRock — all are verified owners. Board is no longer being sold by Newegg.
3 complete board failures in 4 months
Pros: No Pros. didn't even last 7 months
First board DOA. Second board caught on fire
died after 9 months with no overclock on an 8350
Pros: Looks great
No LLC. Extremely high socket temps. Poor VRM cooling. Went pop. seems that the board is doomed to an early grave regardless of how you run it.
Pros: Neat colors.
The first board lasted a solid 3 months with constant BSOD's then died. Second board is having BSOD and RAM problems.
ran great for about four months, then one day just died. Non-overclocked 8320.
The DIGI power control chip burned, after 3 month use.
Cons: I didn't have any til it spontaneously busy in to flames without warning.
Board died in 5 months
Pros: No smoke
Died four months after buying.
Worked great for 3 months then died out of the blue. Non-overclocked 95W CPU.
I turn on the computer and there's smoke coming out of it. Lasted around 3 1/2 months
since the first day alot of bluescreen and it went that stop it work for a like a week an it mest up
Pros: Cool color scheme
Failed after 4 months.
Pros: Nothing good just got a good glossy look
Freezes when plugging in any USB 2 or 3 devices. BIOS update did not fix the issue.
Really disappointed in how quickly the board failed.
Had this board for 2 weeks and it caught on fire at the MOSFET. RMA'd the board and the replacement board has no video signal even after swapping out several graphics cards the result is still the same, this leads me to believe that the Northbridge is faulty on the replacement board
Since the day after i bought i was getting constant bsod's or black screen crashes
Was a nice board until it died 6 weeks after I got it. Also, I'm not sure if it fried my CPU also.
couldn't get the pc to be stable
I owned it for just over 2 months and yesterday 2 capacitors blew without any overclocking.
Bought this board because it supports says it supports the FX 9370 chips, but when I power it on in the bios it just creeps up in temp like crazy, for no reason. I thought I had a bad CPU so I had it replaced with another one and the exact same thing is happening
The rma process is just bad, the service response very slow (still waiting for answer).
I GET NUMEROUS BSOD ERRORS
north bridge heat sink didn't make good contact on my board, caused over heat and burned the board when I was watching Youtube on a non-overclocked CPU
I've had this mobo for a few days now and cannot get it to run stable with my AMD FX 8350.
What idiot decided to place the front panel audio connections at the BACK of the board? The SATA connectors do not hold the connection snug. The motherboard screws are not perfectly aligned with the chassis. If you want to use XFire, you need to run power under/over/around all of your PCI3 cards to find the extra power connector, somewhere above the PCI layout.
