There were no nasty surprises with this. I have an intel G530 processor in it, which is also dirt cheap and very low power consumption. When I sleep all the hard drives the whole system just uses 35 watts, and that's with a very inefficient power supply.
Anyway, good motherboard. It's quite surprising to find 4 SATA2 and 2 SATA3 slots here becuause the H61 chipset only provides 4 SATA2 and 0 SATA3. The 2 extract SATA3 ports here are add ASRock add ons. Apparently this means they won't perform as perfectly as they would if the chipset actually provided these ports. But anyway, motherboards sporting this many ports natively cost a lot more.
The bios was simple enough. No issues there. I had no problems installing and booting from a USB 3.0 flash drive, so that's one more thing that works well. Gigabit ethernet performs as expected.
What's not to like? If this were for my main system I'd get picky and get one with four slots. But I'd be paying a lot more money too.
In truth, these are good boards so far. I had a difficult time getting the SSDs I bought with them to function... this was mainly due to lack of overall experience in building computers with all new parts. I ended up putting the SSDs in another pc and installing windows, taking them back out, installing onto these boards, running windows install disk to repair the installation, and everything worked fine... Later research taught me that I needed to update (flash) the bios and everything would have worked perfectly! Lol! Lesson learned...
I don't blame ASRock, I blame Asus and Intel!! I have never had installation issues with Asus or intel boards and I guess you could say I got spoiled to their simplicity!!
This is week 6 of this mobo running in a business environment and no issues.
The H61M/U3S3 was used for a Windows Home Server 2011 build. So I didn't really need anything fancy. I just needed enough internal SATA ports and stability for a board that would be run 24/7. The board was paired with a core i3-3220 and 8GB of Corsair value ram. Everything was put together, put into the case, and powered on...and that was it. Smooth sailing.
Once everything was installed on the OS side, I played around a bit with the UEFI bios. Everything's straightforward and easy to understand. I'm not doing any overclocking with this build, so I can't comment on its stability on that end. However, running everything at stock, the system's been running straight for about a month with no issues. This is with all 6 SATA ports in use along with an external USB 3.0 drive.
The one caveat for those who need front panel USB 3.0 connections...there are no onboard headers for USB 3.0 allowing you to connect to an external port on a case that has USB 3.0 ports. There are, however, 2 USB 2.0 headers. I can see this being important for many people, so keep it in mind.
Other than that, great board.
Reasonably priced for a i-Series motherboard.
ASRock is the baby brand of ASUS, which generally makes quality products.
Solid capacitors, and a "colorful" BIOS.
Decent configuration options, though I am unsure about overclocking capabilities since I don't do it.
First board I purchased worked for a few minutes, then failed. Turns out it was a defective CPU pin array.
I know that this is about product review, but I am going to give a shameless plug for Amazon's service here. The first board I purchased from a certain "Egg" of the "New" variety site, and not Amazon. After describing my problem, the CSR simply told me I was out of luck since the board's CPU socket was physically damaged (even though I did not do it), it could not be RMA'd, but I could send it in for evaluation. After paying for shipping back (insult to injury there), they declined the refund/replacement. Seems to be a documented issue with this board, which lends me to think there is some type of QC issues.
Amazon Prime to the rescue! I had a new, working board in 48 hours at a comparable price. Plus, I have the security of knowing that Amazon's customer support is absolutely top notch.
