Windows 7: ASRock has bad boards

Wow this makes me wish for an American made mobo. Maybe this will happen one day, of course the mobo will have to retail for twice the Chinese price but in listening to all this maybe the time is coming soon for quality to take over again or at least quality controls. I've had plenty of component issues but reading these and other posts can really take the allure out of building your next rig. It seems everything has it's catch or it's Achilles heel. I hate to say it but maybe we need to revolt against these cheap Chinese made goods finally and support products manufactured in our home countries or at least have options to support other countries of manufacture.

Question Britton

What processor are you using with the Fatality?

Do you have the system setup in a case or on a work bench?

What is the make and model of the RAM? Video card? and Hard Drive?

If I know these I might be able to help figure out what is going on with this.


Side note:

ASRock is not owned by ASUS any more; they actually severed all ties of ownership several years back. They do however share some purchasing agreements with some manufacturers of the components that both companies use.

Well, ASRock is owned by Pegatron Corporation. Asus spun off that company, and it merged with the investment arm, and is now an independent company. A Guy

Do you have the system setup in a case or on a work bench?Both, the first in a case and the last 3 on a piece of cardboard.

What is the make and model of the RAM?All GSkill, 3 different sets one 2x2GB and two 2x4GB, and one 4x2GB, the 2x4GB is 1833 CL9 and the others are 1600CL7. I have also tried different slots and one stick only.

Video card? Nvidia GTX460 and a Radeon HD4670

and Hard Drive?Crucial M4 64GB, Seagate 320 and 500GB.

If I know these I might be able to help figure out what is going on with this.

Sorry about the delay

Been swamped here.

On your cardboard test bench (I have one also) mount your 965 chip, only the SSD and one stick of RAM from one of your 1600mhz sets in the first slot, either GPU will work.

connect your 24pin power and 8pin CPU power and PCIe power cables and give this a shot.

I have a ASrock P67 extreme 4 motherboard, I had did have 2 of my SATA ports fail but I also had a failing HDD. I've yet to try out my new HDD on those ports. Are you sure it's not a Problem somewhere else?

If you have one of the original P67 boards which were plagued with the faulty chipset then you are experiencing the route of the problem which affected the SATA III ports.

All of the manufacturers did a recall of the first generation boards.
