Rated 5 out of 5 by MarkSLI Good motherboard
Great motherboard with really nice design. Great performance and high overclock on i7 6700k of 4.6ghz. could go higher, but don't want to damage the chip. I believe i got a lower than average chip considering most are able to get to 4.7ghz at 1.35 volts but i am happy with 4.6ghz at 1.290 volts.
Cons: Since the bios has so many options to choose from it was a little hard to use and slightly complicated to users who don't have a lot of experience with overclocking, but once you get to know what to play with, its great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dustonpc No drivers for win8
If you try to install new OS be aware that the killer lan will not work under win8. There are no drivers I could found online that would support windows 8 and also those included did not work. They will only work under win 7, 8.1 or 10. If I didn't had an wifi card from my old computer I would be without an internet. EPIC fail from makers EPIC. But mobo is fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bertiebear Be careful with windows 7 and the m.2 slot!
Don't try and use this board with Windows 7. I had a computer failure and needed to put this board as a replacement into an existing Windows 7 machine. (not recommended I know). The board has a neat driver installation system in Bios which worked a treat... but the Intel driven USB ports dont work in Windows 7!!! Thank god for the PS2 port which took an old keyboard and a third party usb port I got running!
From there I updated to Win 10 and everything got a lot friendlier.
Despite featuring an M.2 port for the Fastest of SSD drives it is not really supported. There is no "how to" guide... Even the samsung tools for migrating your OS dont see their own product in this slot... It took 3 days of trial and error and a lot of googoling to find Macrium Reflect will help with key steps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chrisd83 bought this for its looks but was suprized
I bought this board because of its looks more than any after hearing bad things about asrock in the past I didn't know what to expect but wow awesome board never had a single issue had it about 2 months now rock solid this is from a person who normally buy rog boards only this is better than overclocking and temps than my asus formula maximus z97 board was FIVE STAR TO ASROCK FOR THIS SOLID BUILD BOARD.
I bought a i5 6400 2.7 to go with it and overclocked it to 4.3ghz with the sky oc bios
