Summary: Rock and Roll love the Motherboard and the support from AsRock. Perfection doesn't exist and this board has 1 flaw that wouldn't effect others. My other motherboards always put One PCI Slot nearest to the CPU and the 1st PCIE Slot as number two. This board has Slot 1 as PCIE I'm using a Noctua NH-D15 cooler, before purchasing the motherboard I checked with Part Picker who said no problem.
Summary: Love, love love this motherboard. I have read so many reviews on another big know computer parts site and they either have had bad luck or are noobs when it comes to this board. Never had a moments trouble with this board, it has always been kept up to date via AsRock and it overclocks my processor like a champ. I highly recommend this board.
Summary: The first motherboard they sent me was broken on arrival, however it took them two days to get me a new one. After that (I had to disassemble and reassemble my entire PC and that sucked haha) the product worked great, I've had no more problems, it's easy to install, clear labeling on the motherboard so it's easy to know where to put everything. The part that holds the CPU seems extremely secure.
Summary: I purchase this systemboard for a build I've named "The Beast." Let me tell you this board is nothing less that stellar with all the options and ease of overclocking. Pro: Lots of features and scalability. Supports the latest socket 2011 Intel chips 4820, 4930, and 4960. Con: Make sure to upgrade the UEFI bios to the latest version. My "The Beast," PC specs Intel i7 (4930) running at 4.4Ghz comfortably I might add.

Summary: Had to replace the first one that I bought as it did not function properly and was tough to diagnose as a problem when building a computer from scratch. The second replacement motherboard (same identical make/model/manufacturer) worked as expected.
Summary: there are numerous problems with this motherboard because of the new technology. and the fact that this is shipping from Japan and not authorized by Amazon means you will be throwing your money away if you get a bad board or more likely one of the hundreds of returned and supposedly 'refurbished' items they have in stock. I seriously have been looking at this motherboard, the specs are out of this world. too bad they haven't got the thing up to snuff yet.
