Has almost everything that I need. Great overclocking features for the price. I only wish that it had 3 case fan headers instead of 2 case fan and 2 cpu fan headers.

Really awesome bios is the first thought that came to my mind with a lot of overclocking room and plenty of upgrades down the road!

First time using ASRock and I am kicking myself for not trying them before, stellar motherboard and I will most likely go with them from now on. More control over your components than what I was used to.

The ASRock A88M-G/3.1 is a great value, and easily one of the best end-of the line motherboards for FM2+ and has USB 3.1, a M.2 slot (it doesn't support SATA M.2 SSDs, just M.2 PCI Express modules), and newer CPU/APU support out of the box without having to update the BIOS. The color scheme looks great.

Awesome accessories for the price. Great and easy to use bios with explanations of everything on the right. Has an Overclocking profile for hardware, very easy to use. Shows fan speeds and temps. Has 2 CPU cooler connectors and 2 Case fan connectors. I have 4 case fans running off this mobo using splitters.

Typically, I don't like AsRock. I've had four of their boards fail and die on me. But this was the only motherboard around 60-70$ that had four DIMM slots, and it's an A88 chipset, so it supports overclocking.

It has two channel fan headers, and can only handle two fans per header. Four way fan splitters do NOT work. The PC will fail to boot if you put in a four way. The motherboard also has two CPU fan headers, so a push-pull configurations are there.

The board itself looks pretty decent. No LEDs at all, which would be considering a bonus by some. The BIOS is enough to figure out.

All in all, I would recommend this board... if it wasn't an old FM2+ board. But if you are in the situation I was in, and you need an FM2+ board, then go with this if you don't want to spend much.

Easy to build, provides PCIe 3.0, USB 3.1, USB Type-C and M.2 NVMe for the FM2+ socket. The only thing missing is a built in WiFi AC card. There are some quirks with the PCIe 3.0 requiring support at the CPU level, and the M.2 sharing the PCIe lanes with the second PCIe slot.
