    Heh. Normally they send out whizzbang highly tweaked things to beta testers and reviewers so the kids buy them expecting overclocks they will never reach.

    Anyway they sound like utter rubbish. Accordingly the FAST6191 electronics recycling program is available for those troubled by this. They shall have their parts stripped off and used in other things, possibly to act as a component in the exhibition of some of the finest modern art.

    Mind you, this was one of their mini-ITX motherboards for the Intel 8000-series CPU's from 2018 when the i7-8700k was the newest kid on the Intel block that was the best option at the time. Maybe their ATX lineup is better maintained.

    Isnt Asrock owned by ASUS?

    Currently im on Asrock and just recently I got a BSOD which didnt let me do anything (safe mode was not possible). It fiirst stared when I load games and half of the HUD was missing, audio stopped playing, game freezes at end (during loading). All the time I was thinking it was due to faulty RAM, faulty HDD, later thinking a faulty Asrock MBO.... I mean there were some indicators to blame them all, I checked every damn component multiple times and found no issues (zero), I was lost and confused like never before. Turned out the Win 10 2004 messed everything up, thankfully I could revert back to previous Windows 10 version, build 1909 (used system restore).

    Later, I faced similar issues on a second Win10 PC, after normal shutdown I couldnt boot my PC up but system restore helped me again (by this time I know it was probably because of Windows).

    BTW im still on build 1909, dont know if they fixed the 2004 build. I almost accused Asrock for all of it (you know, people s*** talking at Asrock blah bllah thinking they were right) but turns out, that was back then where Asrock had some issues, now its completely stable, peopel just kept **** talking to this day.

    Thing is, those first consoles that no one updates are usually the easiest to hack... ;)

    Oh boy, did I have an opposite experience to you. I remember buying an ASRock mobo back in the Socket 478 days and it gave up the ghost within the first week of operation. Never bought a thing from them again. My ASUS laptop is still chuggin' some ten years down the line with the only flaw being cracked plastic here and there from me tossing it around in my backpack.

    ASRock originated from ASUSTeK, but since about 10 years ago they are no longer the same company and in fact compete with eachother.

    Who paid anything for the spyware that windows 10 is? They gave it away for free for years, pretty sure it still is free somewhow. You could even just install a cracked license on 7 and update to 10..
