ASRock M3A785GMH/128M AMD 785G AM3 mATX Motherboard Review

If I didn’t have 6Gb of DDR2 I would have gone down the DDR3 road. I would have like to have the sideport memory that his board has. The review is a little off. On the specs page they don’t mention the sideport memory and they say is is the 3200 series graphics when it is really uses the 4200.

They site also suggests coupling it with a 100$ Phenom720 Tri-Core processor but I think the 620 is the way to go unless you can get the 720 for 50 bucks like it was last week at Fry’s.


The ASRock M3A785GMH/128M sells for $80 at my favorite online retailer. Couple that with the impressive $120 Phenom II X3 720, along with a Blu-ray ROM drive, and you could build a great HTPC rig for around $550! Or ditch the Blu-ray, add a powerful video card such as the $175 GTX 260 in the test rig and a better PSU and build a respectable gaming rig for under $700. Either way, the M3A785GMH/128M is definitely a bargain. gives the ASRock M3A785GMH/128M AM3 motherboard a 10 out of 10 score.
