what can i say everyone else has said it, i just love this board

darren 2012-04-12


Just Perfect With its super simple OC abillitys and its easy to install Expantion Slots dont have much more to say apart from its a must have

Dave M 2012-02-10

Really good motherboard

Picked up one of these for SLI mainly as my MSI P68A-C45 doesn't support it. When it arrived I knew I had a quality product before I even switched it on as the packaging was all really high quality and the actual look of the board is solid and quite well presented with its gold capacitors and black PCB.

This board also has a crazy amount of overclocking options for you to tinker with, which coming from an MSI user is something I'm all to familiar with already, yet this really does push the boat out on what you can and can't change in regards to CPU overclocking. The inbuilt audio and gigabit network adapater are also very high quality and a massive improvement over the board I replaced.

Can't recommend it enough!

Believe it...

Just finished a 24 hr prime stress test after setting a whopping 4.8 ghz overclock by pressing 1 button in the bios. Using a huge amount of memory and just cant believe it was that simple and stable.

Dropped in my new 2500k i5 and clock the auto 4.8ghz preset and voila job done, shes a missile!

Dipsta 2011-12-02

Features galore

This Mobo is feature packed and overclocks so simply (1 click). I got this board couple with a 2500K proc and it clocked immediately to 4.6ghz stable with over 8 hours of prime95 stress testing. Nuff said.

Great Board

Got this motherboard before few days, OC-ed my i7 2600k to 4600 with Kingston XMP Ram 2133 on default voltage. No crash or blue screen. USB working 25% faster, great.

SolarFox 2011-10-13

Best board ever

Had this about a month now, and still amazed at the performance. Boots up in around 4 secs. Managed to take my 2500K up to 5GHz easily. One of the best features is the XFast Lan, there's a very noticeable speed boost when browsing and downloading.
Massive respect to Asrock on producing such a superb product.

Dave 2011-09-10
