Written on: 16/04/2007 by cwq (1 review written)

The ASRock K7VM2 seems to be a good performer but it's been very frustrating to deal with the problem of not being able to update XP with the latest patches. I don't want to replace the board because it's been such a good performer (reliability & Speed)... it would be like getting rid of a good car because you can't put 20 inch wheels on it… Read Full Review

“I resurrected this board after it had been thrown away...”

Written on: 12/01/2007 by johng8seq (1 review written)

I resurrected this board after it had been thrown away by my son. He had had problems with it randomly restarting. He was convinced it was either a mother board problem, an HDD problem or the PSU. Eliminating the HDD and PSU was easy leaving the mother board or processor. He bought another Asrock board and that was OK with his processor. Fortunately the memory wasn't suitable for the new motherboard.
Anyway I had his old memory, his motherboard and bought a second user processor (AMD 2 GHz) and… Read Full Review

I've just fitted a GeFORCE FX5200 - cost £24 new, which has improved the display no end.

Written on: 11/03/2006 by Rubix (1 review written)

I use the ASRock K7VM2 motherboard in one of my portal servers. It's up 24/7 with hundreds of thousands of hits a day. No matter what happens, this board keeps running!

With the great bus speed, it is very handy for using with 2D applications and for playing music. I find the sound of the AC'97 sound card really of astonishing beauty!

Oh, and don't forget the 4 USB 2.0 ports, which can even be expanded to 6 of them!

I used this board in a gaming PC for a while, but the 4x AGP speed lacks for… Read Full Review

I know it's a bit late, but I've found that Win98SE is not clever with USB. If you can afford to upgrade to XP you may well find the probs resolved.

Currently I am running at 100MHz FSB with an Athalon 1GHz. What are you overclocking to and is it stable? Nice to know.

The failing of a board could happen with the most valuable motherboards. Since you didn't try lots of these boards, it is unfair to count the failing of one board in your review.

I don't think that a board with onboard sound and graphics should be criticised for having only 3 PCI slots. Giving it such a low rating distorts the overall score and could be offputting to someone desperately looking for a good budget board, and anyway gamers shouldn't be looking for onboard graphics (though some budget socket 754 boards using GeForce Nvidia 256mb graphics are reported as coping well with quite modern games, eg Biostar GeForce 6100-M7, see Newegg.com for lots of reviews).

I couldnt believe the price for Asrock k7 vm2 motherboard with so many onboard features. It has everything you need for a simple workstation, including onboard video, sound, NIC and USB 2.0. The only down point is its simple bios which doesnt give you many options for overclocking… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/01/2003 by greg. (1 review written)

This Asrock k7 vm2 motherboard was a bargain at £49-00 from the local computer fair. Asrock is part of ASUS corporation and therefore quality in manufacturing can be taken for granted. With the board I have, there is onboard sound AC97 and a 32 meg savage 4 chipset as well; admittedly for gaming the graphics card is a bit slow by todays new standards; but for free it's ok. There is a 4x AGP slot for upgrading and as an extra bonus you get 4x usb 2 ports as well !
The board had none of the… Read Full Review
