Of course it's the same problem as others upon delivery

Summary: As another person has said also, I'll be returning it and hoping they don't sent another faulty motherboard (but I've read other people have issues and if there are bent pins then asrock won't do anything and will charge you to fix it).
Pros: Dr. Debug
Cons: Same issues as others have had, error code 55, tested each memory module individually, and both B1 and B2 gave me the error 55 (at least the Dr. Debug works). I ordered this board less than two weeks ago so, buyer beware.
Pros: -Easy Overclocking -Has Clear CMOS button -Lots of USB 2.0/3.0 -Pretty much the only mobo available that is compatible with my 2600k. -Dual Channel memmory -Plenty of SATA 6gb/s ports -Multiple PCI-E
Cons: -Drivers are terrible -Had to take out the CMOS battery because it wouldn't let me undo the overclock -After a year, the USB 3.0 has stopped working.

Summary: If you can find it new and have the 2500k or 2600k it is an easy choice. If used check for problems as mine was new and still had problems.
Pros: One of the last new motherboards I could find for my 2600 as I still see no reason to upgrade even with the arrival of Skylake. Well designed, spacing for SLI is good.
Cons: -Don't like the location of the 8 pin connector, a stretch for my PSU. -The top USB 3.0 ports are dead. Not a big enough reason for me to RMA a product that they probably can't replace. Annoying but as this let me upgrade my system to an SLI configuration I'll sacrifice those 2 ports over having ...
Summary: I've been using this mobo for nearly three years, with a i5-3570k, a Radeon HD 7970, and, more recently, a Nvidia 980 Ti. It has been a solid performer for the entire time. Never had an RMA. Never had a problem with the stated features.
