    Question Is it normal for this to happen? Or am I just expecting more than I should be from a 150$ Mobo?

    Purchased the 990FX Killer a while back, when I got it I Immediately hated the UEFI but that wasn't hard to ignore.
    Next it would randomly stop recognizing my SSD so when I would boot I would have to power it on and off several times before I could see my Windows/#! start to load up.
    Next it stopped booting on the first power button press. I would have to press the power button, let it set for a few seconds, then power cycle it once and it would load my OS.
    Now I just installed a secondary Graphics Card so I could set up another monitor I just got, and realized that my last PCI-E port, I believe its labled PCI-5 on the board is literally coming out of the board itself.
    It still has the SSD and the booting issues. Not to mention that when I press the reset button my screens go black and I have to go back through the whole booting process, it doesn't actually reset.
    I would consider doing an RMA on the board, but I feel like I would just get this crap again. This was my first all out build where I tried to not skimp on anything and I end up buying something that has ultimately become a waste of my time.
    Is their anything you guys would recommend doing? I can upload a screenshot of my specs if needed but that wont really be of any help I would imagine.
    I really just want a new Mobo that isn't crap. Any recommendations? I would prefer one that I can throw my 8320 in and not have to worry about compatibility and crap.

    If any of the PCI(-e) sockets themselves are coming loose/seperating from the board contact ASRock Tech Support using THIS link.

    Or if you're within the exchange period from where you bought it I would initiate a return with them.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.
