I went ahead and purchased a ASRock, now Im worried it will explode any second

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I bought a ASRock 760GM-GS3. Should I be worried its going to explode? The PCB has missing capacitors and only 2 solid caps, the rest being electro-****s. Should I be constantly worrying I'll have to RMA it? I spent all my money on this budget AMD-5770 build. I regret purchasing a $54 motherboard and it hasant even arrived yet! Should I have confidence in the board or be worried its going to destroy my system at any moment.

I can't speak for the chipset (NVIDIA?), but it will do everything it is supposed to, save maybe a dud onboard lan. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Be prepared for stability.

AMD 760g+SB710 chipset. I bought it for ACC.

Expect to be let down in your expectations of failure.

How do you know the board has missing capacitors? Also, the whole solid-cap fad is more talk than substance. The board's gonna be around for a good while, regardless of what kind of caps it uses.

Because you can see places on the motherboard where capacitors would have been. Look at the picture.

First Off: ASRock is supported with design and consulting help by ASUS.
Second: ASRock makes decent motherboards. They aren't MSI durable or EVGA/ASUS quality, but they are still good boards.
Third: ASRock has some "Sleeper motherboards." The ASRock 890 chipset board beat out the ASUS Crosshair IV, MSI 890GX and Gigabyte board it was reviewed against.

If that doesn't make you feel better then not much will.

I've been running my mb for a year and a half, it works just fine for a mild OC. Don't expect to go 4.0 Ghz or higher on a 4+1 power phase though.

I thought maybe I could take the CPU up to 3.6ghz and maybe I'll get a chance at 6mb L3 or a extra core.

Should be fine.
