I built a HTPC around this board in November 2013, not one single incompatibility issue using the following components; AMD FX4350, 8GB Kingston HyperX Genesis 1600Mhz RAM, Radeon HD7950 2GB, 120GB Samsung 840EVO SSD, 2TB Western Digital Green Drive, all systems go and very fast.

This board has everything you need and good quality too, supports FX processors out of the box with the latest bios updated already.
One of the best mATX motherboards out there that supports AM3+, to include 2 x Sata 3/6Gps, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Lan, PCI Express, DDR 3 overclocking and much more.

The best thing is some of the software bundled from ASRock is absolutely brilliant, my favourite is XFAST USB which speeds up standard USB 2 devices and makes them up to 5 times quicker, XFAST LAN also does a good job with Internet gaming and streaming. Excellent package of software included.

You can't go wrong with this board, only one thing missing I would say is a USB 3.0 header on the motherboard, if you need 2 USB 3 ports on the front, you need to get an adaptor and run the cables through to the back ports, no real hassle though and wouldn't knock a star off just for that.

Backplate, 1 X Sata 2 and 1 X Sata 3 Cables, CD Driver & Software and Manual in the box.

Excellent motherboard bought together with Kingston Technology KHX1333C9D3B1/4G 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM (run at 1.5V, no problem fitting this first then CPU) and AMD ADX460WFGMBOX Athlon II X3 460 Triple-Core Processor (3.40 GHz, 1.5MB Cache, Socket AM3, 95W). Only has 3 slots: PCI express x16, PCI express x1 and PCI but with Ebest-2 Port ATA/133 HDD PCI IDE PC Computer Expansion Controller Adapter Card you can have 3 separate IDE drives (each with slave drive if your PSU and case can handle it). So best of both HDD worlds - legacy ATA133 drives and serial - SATA 6GB/s supporting SSD's. Also has USB 3.
The M/B fast start is brilliant with SSD such as Kingston Technology 60GB Solid State Drive V300 2.5-inch SATA 3 now only £41!!!

Well, it does what it says on the tin. It's a motherboard for AM3+ processors such as the FX6300 which I put in mine and worked straight away. The only niggle (and it's a very small one) is that if you want to go into the BIOS settings (it's not UEFI) then you hit F11 but then have to wait until another screen has come up before entering, which I didn't know at first so kept restarting until I worked it out. I've not tried overclocking, but it looks easy to do from the BIOS. I needed to download drivers for the USB 3.0 ports and Ethernet to work at all and also listed on the website is a driver for SATA6, but I'm not sure if I need that one. Other than that, it's a very capable motherboard for the price.

DO NOT BUY - see my comment below.

{My earlier rating was 5 stars and this is what i wrote:

Delivered next morning by Royal Mail - first class post worked for me :)

Board as advertised. AM3+ (don't forget the heat sink paste if you're transferring your processor), 2 SATA3, 4 SATA2, 2 USB3, the rest are USB2.

Straightforward fitting the board and getting it working. User manual not very informative about the BIOS options but defaults work fine. One oddity i came across was that loading the drivers to either the onboard graphics or a PCIe card caused the Windows black screen of death on reboot - the surprising solution was to boot with low res and then reset screen resolution to native.

Overall, i would recommend this board for a modest new build or a replacement micro-ATX (note this means 2 memory slots and 1 PCIe 16).}

A reasonably priced board for these features. Two USB 3.0 ports (although no board headers for USB 3.0 connections from the front panel - don't make the same mistake I did), and 3 internal fan headers, which is nice - cheaper boards often make do with 2.

However, I do have a complaint: although the board claims compatibility with 8-core AMD CPUs (it even says so right there next to the RAM slots), apparently by compatibility they mean only that the board will run using them, not that it will run well. The FX-8320 is a power-hog of a CPU, no questions, but the power circuitry on this board leaves a lot to be desired, and is completely bare, with no attempt at a heatsink. This is common enough on cheaper boards, but it means that if you try to run the FX-8320 at full load, the VRMs will heat up fast and quickly cause the CPU to throttle to lower speeds. This is a stock clocks, mind you - only a fool would try to overclock a 125W CPU on this board. A full CPU load isn't going to be common, but even at more reasonable loads I am concerned about the longevity of the power circuitry at these high temperatures.
This isn't an issue if you are using a more sensible CPU, of course, but for a board which proclaims support for the FX-8320, I would expect a little better.

Has everything i needed and nothing i don't need. Software that came with it i haven't used the bios is easy to navigate albeit confusing if you don't know what you are doing so please be aware of that.

no dust cover for cpu not a big issue really came in a anti dust and static bag so only an issue if you take it out early. No usb 3 header if you have one from your chasis, however it has two on the back anyway. no other errors i can list.

4/5 stars Great job everything you need nothing you dont!
