    Lots of USB3 in the back, as well as an HDMI and a DVI-D. Love it.

    One glaring issue with this motherboard:

    1) When pressing F11 for the boot menu, there is a bug where you can't see anything on-screen unless the mouse travels over it. You basically have to use the mouse to 'reveal' the hidden UI that is the entire boot screen. Really weird. Firmware is up-to-date.

    Other than that, the system has been incredibly stable so far on macOS and I love the tiny form factor, so it gets an above average rating.

    One thing to note - if you are planning on doing a Hackintosh, go with the newer 270/370 chipsets. First of all, newer = better, right? Most importantly, sleep does NOT work on this 170-series board. Sleep works on the 270/370-series boards.

    Solid board. BIOS is easy to use, and updates well. No features I didn't need and none that I'm missing, except maybe wifi. There actually is a wifi model I actually just bought the wrong one. Oh well, I had a spare wifi usb card lying around somewhere that will work.

    from completed build The Entertainment Center(OLD)

    As far as functionality goes, it's a good motherboard and seems to be well made. eSATA has few options, but considering what I paid it has tons of features for an mITX board.

    2 stars knocked off because of the amount of times I swore at ASRock as a company and called this motherboard a "piece of s***" during building and set up. The SATA ports are backwards and in an idiotic spot. The USB ports on the back are extremely tight, so I try to only plug in things in the back that will stay plugged in because when you unplug them you can feel the stress being put on the motherboard from how hard you have to pull. The BIOS is ugly and not quick and easy to navigate like MSI boards, and the custom fan curves(which I swear by) are annoying to edit and don't allow you to modify the stock curves(so you're left with no clue what "performance" means). Also had trouble getting the ports to even boot from my official Windows USB(don't remember the solution, but I eventually figured it out). Plus there are no debug LEDs, which I feel should be standard these days.

    Maybe for a total expert who doesn't mind the couple design flaws this would be a great board. But for the intermediate/advanced users(and especially beginners), I'd say to get something from MSI or Asus, that way you're good to go out of the box and have an easier time building. Plus ASRock's website looks like somebody at the company's nephew who's just getting into graphic design made it. You really feel like you bought a generic brand when you go to download your drivers.
