I needed a product to span some older hardware with a newer triple core processor.
This was the ticket, and it will continue to support processors and memory all the way to the current AM3+ products.
It does exactly what is listed and is very easy to install.
It could use another IDE port, but with everything these days being SATA, I guess it has enough.
More USB ports than any other comparable board, and a nice easy BIOS. The BIOS update process is really sweet.
Just have your BIOS file unzipped somewhere on a Flash drive or one of the Hard Drives and the M/B will find it.
Doing an update was really easy.
It supports three fans and monitors them all with its utilities. You can do a simple easy overclock of the processor
and buss components with the included utility as well. Unlike other utilities, this one actually works and doesn't
really try to push the processor too far. It is kind of an enhancement utility rather than a full blown overclock
utility.
Well worth the money, and supports almost every processor AMD built over the last 5 years.

This is a very good motherboard for older computers that need an upgrade and support for both older processors and older RAM (AM2 socket, DDR2 ram). Overall, I am very impressed with the motherboard.

There are, however, a few complaints that I have.

1. There is a PCIE x16 1.1 slot, NOT a PCIE x16 2.0 slot. That was a nasty surprise for me because I bought a GFX Card expecting PCIE x16 2.0 speeds, but GPU-Z only reported PCIE 1.1. I'm not sure if this is a BIOS related issue, or because I have an AM2 processor installed? But it would be nice for ASRock to specify somewhere in the product information or in the manual what type of PCIE x16 slot the motherboard has.

2. There is NOT AHCI support on this motherboard. I knew this before hand, but it still would be nice feature to have.

3. The integrated GPU is underpowered.

Now for the Pros.

I like that this motherboard offers so many upgrade possibilities, for example, the option for an 8-core AM3+ CPU and up to 8gb of 1600 MHZ DDR3 RAM or 8gb of DDR2 RAM. Also, the board plays well with Linux as long as the options for "Advanced Halt State" and "ACPI HPET Table" are not enabled in the BIOS (I'm not sure if "ACPI HPET Table" has any effect, but I keep it disabled). As far as I've seen, having these options disabled does not affect any ACPI functionality in Windows (I have Windows Vista).

Overall I am very happy with this motherboard, it is well worth the money and has an array of features, just be aware of its limitations.

Just in case anyone wants to know the specs of my computer, they are as follows:

I have bought 2 of these mobo's. The first I purchased a few months ago so that I could continue using the DDR2 Ram I was currently using from an older mobo along with the older AM2 processor I was using. I also used this board to help me troubleshoot a customer's PC running DDR3 Ram and an AM3 procesor and decided you couldn't go wrong for the price and versatility. Customer is also pleased with the price and performance of their new mobo.

In use for about a month.

Now I/we have been using this in a rebuilt office PC. The old PC's motherboard was acting flaky and since I wanted to upgrade to win7 I chose this motherboard. I was able to use the old ddr2 memory even though its slower then what it said it would accept. Also able to use the old 2.7ghz dual amd am3 CPU. So this is a awesome motherboard is you want to do a slow upgrade on a older PC. I plan to upgrade the memory to DDR3 1600 when we have some spare cash and later to the older 6core am3 CPU as it still does better then the bulldozer CPUs and you can pick it up cheap on sale. Anyway the range of hardware that works on this motherboard is amazing, I wish more motherboards were this flexible. It also does virtualization, so for 1 program on the old XP machine I'm using virtualbox and even though it's slow (old hard drive with 2gb old memory so only 512mb for virtual machine) it does work. Anyway I give this motherboard 2 thumbs up.

I had an HP Media Center PC and the motherboard went out. Trying to get a replacement via auction was filled with expensive used ones $150+ and a lot of bad ones. It was time to get rid of Vista anyway so I purchased this motherboard to work with my AMD Phenon 8550 Quad Core CPU along with my 4 Gigs of DDR2 memory (all from the HP). Switched out the boards, put on the connectors, Installed Windows 7 Pro (it found everything without the included driver disk) and everything is fine. Windows 7 gives it a Windows Experience Index (Performance) of 3.3. But that's due to the built-in graphics card under the gaming test. which is fine unless you really want to game and besides you can add a higher performance video card. Other performance numbers: Processor 6.9 - Memory 5.9 - Graphics 3.6 - my old 320G hard drive 5.9 With the scale from Microsoft from 1.0 to 7.0 this has some great performance for such an inexpensive board.
