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.

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.

ASRock 970 Pro3 R2.0, AMD 970, AM3+, DDR3, SATA III 6GBs, PCIe 2.0 (x16), AMD Quad CrossFireX and CrossFireX, ATX is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid as an AsRock Really pleased with this motherboard paired with AMD FX 6300 (PID LN47458) and using Corsair XMS3 x2 8GB sticks (PID LN33670) The only thing I would say is that this MB has no IDE ports... something which I stupidly forgot to include in my build. I know I'm living in the past but I like my old IDE drives. Anyway I've by no means used this MB to its full potential yet but looking at the Bios options it looks really good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good, feature-rich board, with odd BIOS I paired this with a FX-6300 chip which rattles along at a very nice pace. Plenty of features but a very odd bios which didn't fit on the screen properly (possibly due to using HDMI out on a dedicated GPU) but once I set what I needed to didn't have to do anything else. All-black colour suited to black/red, black/blue, black builds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does what it says on the tin for its price all is good not let me down and easy bios

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Running it with a fx6300 but aware of outdated BIOS any ways to avoid this?

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.
Asked by: RemoteFX
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.
