High Density Glass Fabric PCB
What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity or whatever you’d like to name it. And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit. Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.

Fast Boot
With ASRock’s exclusive Fast Boot technology, it takes less than 1.5 seconds* to logon to Windows® 8 from a cold boot. No more waiting! The speedy boot will completely change your user experience and behavior.

Restart to UEFI
Fast Boot is so fast that it is impossible for users to enter the UEFI setup utility during POST. Therefore, ASRock Restart to UEFI technology allows users to easily enter the UEFI setup utility automatically when turning on the PC next time. It is designed for those who constantly need to enter the UEFI setup utility.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by does what it says on the tin for its price all is good not let me down and easy bios 03 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good motherboard, no frills, does the job. As like many other motherboards for this chipset it does its job. I don't really get excited about new hardware as I am a system builder and have seen many. It is good value for money and has a very good BIOS that uses mouse navigation, although the BIOS can be a little confusing when setting CPU temp. limits and the manual doesn't explain what each setting means - there is no "Set max. temp. to xxC" it is all jargon. Good value board but then again so are many others. 20 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by quick delivery and perfect condition Needed this motherboard to replace my old one. Wasn't looking for a big upgrade, so this product was the best replacement at a reasonably low price. The board itself has some great features, very much worth not going hi-end 2nd pc. 21 May 2015

Answer: 
Technically it should be but BEWARE! I have built numerous AMD systems and the biggest issue with them is the motherboard doesn't always come with an updated BIOS to run the FX cpus. This is a problem because in this case when you turn on the machine you won't get any display. It isn't your graphic card its the outdated BIOS. What I keep to hand in these cases is an AMD Phenom II x 4 and use this to get the system to turn on then update BIOS and install the FX cou. Any AM3/AM3+ cpu will work (except FX) to get around this issue, Phenoms, Athlons x2/x3/x4.
So be prepared.

For a christmas upgrading im upgrading to a fx6300 from my old E8500. I've read around that AMD motherboards don't always come with the most recent BIOS version to support a fx CPU so i was wondering how i would avoid this problem. As this is the first amd build ive done i dont have a any other amd CPU's lieing around to use to update the BIOS. Are there any services i can get that/other ways of making sure that the BIOS will work first time around? Thank you im not a very experienced builder so i want to make sure its a smooth enough sail for me to go on.

Answer: 
I got this notice but fortunately it accepted the CPU fine (Asrock 970 pro3).

Check the manual of your M/B, without knowing the M/B can't give much more detail. Some allow updates via USB (Q flash/Q flash+) without a CPU.
