    ASRock has improved its quality therefore its reputation worldwide. Before buying my new rig a year ago, I thought the brand was very low level and was afraid it could affect the overall performance but I was on a budget and wanted to focus on the CPU and GPU. Right now, I'm very pleased with the result and I will buy ASRock again without regrets.

    "Frankenstein" hahaha, it's so true, ASRock has the ability to make some interesting combos. My MB for example, it has a 785G chipset which was designed to be used with only one PCIe 16x lane, ASRock to differentiate from the rest using the same chipset managed to put two PCIe and split the 16x lane besides they added a third PCIe 4x. At that time you couldn't think of CrossFire with a US$100 MB.

    This is the most Frankenstein of them all.

    Imagine switching a hundred jumpers over 14 clusters to switch between sockets.
