ASRock Leaps to Third Largest Motherboard Vendor
 
Enthusiasts may fondly remember ASRock for their unique and often innovative motherboard products, such as the iconic "Dual" motherboards that combined PCIe/AGP and DDR/DDR2 slots. Interestingly enough, the company appears to produce enough mainstream units to stake a claim as the third largest branded PC motherboard supplier of 2010. A report by D... [ Read full article ]

They have definitely found an interesting niche in bridging older technologies with hew. I used to have own of their socket 939 motherboards with a PCI-E and AGP slots and never had any complaints.

I used to own an ASRock 939 board with PCIe and AGP. It was a solid board and was capable of overclocking surprisingly well. I had to do a volt mod on it because the mobo's bios didn't allow the CPU volts to go as high as other manufactures boards did for overclocking. If I remember correctly, I think I was able to get from 2.0GHz to around 2.7GHz with a 3800+ X2 Toledo core at 1.45V. I still have that CPU actually.

I had an ASRock H55 board, worked well and overclock was decent. Cheapest of the bunch at the time too, by about $10 I think

I have had 2 asrock boards: the 4coresata and my newer deluxe 4. I have to say that they are pretty awesome. I orginally went with an asus, but after 2 bad boards i went back to the rock, asrock. My older board is now in a computer for my mom. I really like them a lot because they give you a lot and you pay a little.

I would take MSI any day ahead of ASRock.

ms low low end vs asrock low low end might make you think twice.

not because of issues, but because the asrocks are better geared towards

value, and for 50 bucks usually offer better of the said value.

now at 150-200 or more of course you go giga,msi and maybe asus :)

shrug - as far as I know, Asrock is still a wholly owned subsidiary of Asus, therefore I'd throw their sales into the same bucket.

I've built many machines using $50. AsRock boards and never had any problems with them... Even their mid range offerings overclock surprising well for "budget" boards.
