I had trouble making my pc work because of this guy right here. My pc would turn on but won't post so I did some tests like

  • removing all ram
  • using only 1 ram stick
  • placing ram on different slots
  • running without the gpu
  • trying with a different cpu cooler
  • used a different power supply
  • swapped around my psu cables with the extra identical ones
  • tried multiple monitor connectors
  • removing every connection and carefully place them again to see if there's some wrong placing
  • testing with just the cpu, cpu cooler, and the psu for power.

even after the things I did above, it still didn't work so I'm starting to think that my mobo is a bad one. I didn't give up and this time, I removed the battery of the motherboard to reset its Bios and after a few mins, I placed it back and tried to boot my pc up with everything built up and it works! Now that it's working, I proceeded to install the os, and all the other stuff. The UEFI looks nice, but I haven't really tried tweaking things yet so I can't speak about the ease of use for it. The board shows some noticeable flex when I was plugging stuff on it while mounted on the case. The board is light and doesn't really feel high end, but I don't think it has a bad quality build.

For those who plan to use this motherboard, I hope this helps you and it is not my intention to prevent others on buying this since it is a nice looking motherboard for the price. I removed 1 star because of the hassle it gave me before I get it to start working.

ASrock is my standby mobo manufacturer. I hate to admit I've never used anything else, but they have never let me down so I'll stick with them until they do. This board is awesome, $100 for SLI, M.2, Killer lan, ALC1150, USB3.1, legendary ASrock quality.

It has some good features for the price, but I would't personally recommend it. The killer network thing caused me to have to do a fresh install of windows, and the BIOS is kind of messed up, when I'm in easy mode and go to hover over the boot order, everything freezes and i have to turn it off for it to work again. ctrl+alt+delete doesn't work either, but other than those two things it's alright. Some of the ports (SATA and such) would be nice if they were at a 90 degree angle, but i can deal with that.

Not much to say here, everything is communicating, lots of USB 3.0 ports, plenty of SATA connections and room for a M.2 SSD. No SLI but that isn't of interest to me, compatible with AMD CrossFire though. Looks sick as well. The colour of red is a lot better than it looks in the pictures.

from completed build Finally its done -.- lol

i was originally going to go with the msi krait motherboard but then i saw this and decided the red accents would be a nice offset to the black and white of the case and board. Now it doesn't have the most features but it has exactly what i want.

Not too bad a motherboard but it wouldnt run my corsair vengeance at the 3000mhz that they are rated at even with an overclock. Popped the ram in an asus 7270f and it had no problems running that ram at that speed. It also hangs sometimes in the bios. Other than that it worked well.
