from completed build BOB - Big Oz box (prices in Aust $, take a third off for USD)
Generally pretty happy with this part but it isn't perfect.
First the positives: Very well featured for the price: it had a lot of power phases, 2 M2 slots for future upgrades, 3 chassis fan headers plus a water pump fan header. Looks very nice and the LED's look good enough (but probably need an RGB LED strip if you really want it to light up).
The BIOS is easy to work with. The fan tuning utility is easy to use through the BIOS. Adjusting the DRAM frequency from 2133 up to 2666 wasn't obvious but with help from customer support i managed. The Appshop software works well, it was easy to automatically update the BIOS and the drivers.
One slight negative - the Sound Blaster software installed but at first I couldn't find it. Still not sure what it does or if it is actually working.
The other negative is the IO cover. Very tinny and cheap, though to be honest it is the only IO cover I have even used. Just felt like it should have been made from better material to match the quality of the rest of the board.
I'd buy Asrock again. BIOS and software work well. Lots of features and good value.
