Eghhhhhhh. Not again, I'll tell you that. This motherboard has 3 SATA ports now. the plastic housing on the 2nd SATA3 has left the building. Flashed the Bios, tried to use the Windows .exe from ASRock, not happening. Finally ballsed up and threw it on a FAT32 USBdrive, flashed it. Doesn't boot. Tries again. Nope. Finally realized what had happened. Went into the UEFI, unplugged my mouse, plugged it in again, went to boot devices changed it from my hatachi drive to my ancient Maxtor. Boots right up.
Pros: Cheap, supports light oc, pretty easy-to-use BIOS.
Cons: Front pannel USB 3.0 connector not avaible, just 2 SATA cables included in the box.
I mean.. it works. Bought it on a budget in november with the pentium g3258 to do overclocking. The PCI-e removal tab is right next to the ram slot dims and is covered tightly around my GPU. It gets the job done though.
Best motherboard for the price since I needed USB 3.0 headers. Most boards in this price class don’t have this feature. Worked with the processor out of the box as well. No updates required.
Ok this is a crap model of motherboard, but the price used was fantastic and I have had no issues with it at all. The placement of the front panel connector is unfortunate as you can see in my build I had to cut out a section of the video card cooler fan shroud to make it fit together with the front panel connected. ASRock works well I am impressed and will buy this makers boards again.
