Kieran, Lancaster Noob enthusiast!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Two x16 PCIE slots for SLI/Crossfire (Yes! Supports EITHER)

Great sound from onboard Audio


Great price for some of it's high end type features

Fine at stock speeds with any AMD FX Processor.
Bad points:
4+1 power phase design - not useful for overclocking any of the 8 core fx processors...Only got mine stable at 4ghz so far - throttles when going any higher.

Fussy about ram configuration - took a a while to get right!

Jamie, Birkenhead

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Beautiful board, works great, has everything you could ask for, lots of fan outputs and other options, larger than I expected but is an all round great performance motherboard. The bios is also very well set out, looks great and easy to overclock in.
Bad points:
The crossfire bridge that came with the board is stiff, not flexible. I don't crossfire though some people may find this a problem.

peter, blackpool

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
it looks nice, very well priced, good amount of features for a standard board
Bad points:
cant overclock, limited sata ports (1 pretty much unsuable due to being obscured by graphics card), only 4+1 phase power and no cooling on them, nothing is at 90 degrees for better cable management,

Carl,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Nice board and easy install
Bad points:
Get your sata cables in before installing graphics card as they a nightmare once it's installed as they underneath it. Not a problem just a pain to keep removing card to put extra HDD or DVD drives in

The innovative features include: Internet Application Prioritization, Lower Latency in Game, Traffic Shaping and Real-Time Analysis of Your Data. It’s the smartest way to control your web programs.

ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility (AXTU) is an all-in-one software to fine-tune different features in an user-friendly interface, which includes Hardware Monitor, Fan Control, Overclocking, OC DNA and IES. In Hardware Monitor, it shows the major readings of your system. In Fan Control, it shows the fan speed and temperature for you to adjust. In Overclocking, you are allowed to adjust the CPU frequency, ratio and some voltages for optimal system performance. In OC DNA, you can save your OC settings as a profile and share with your friends. Your friends then can load the OC profile to their own system to get the same OC settings. In IES (Intelligent Energy Saver), the voltage regulator can reduce the number of output phases to improve efficiency when the CPU cores are idle without sacrificing computing performance.

Turbo UCC technology provides you an all-in-one solution to unlock the hidden cpu cores in the CPU, get the amazing system performance boost by auto-overclocking, and running the system in a certainly lower power consumption level as well. When you press “X” when switch on the computer, the system will automatically reboot itself, after that, the system will execute the Turbo UCC function. Enabling Turbo UCC, it will automatically help you to unlock the extra CPU core to enjoy an instant performance boost, and the system performance will boost up by overclocking CPU frequency, memory frequency and all related voltage settings! Different from normal high-energy consumption for overclocking or system upgrading process, ASRock Turbo UCC can allow an energy-saving overclocking or system upgrade computing operation!
