Summary: I don't know if it's my SSD, Video Driver, or the Motherboard, but I can't successfully resume from hibernation. It comes up, I get the login, and then it completely Crashes Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 The crash dumps don't point a finger, but I would have expected more help from AS Rock. I love the rest of everything about it and ended up disabling the hibernation!. Ultimately it's the little things that mean the most though.
Theres some good theres some bad, but mostly this item is GREAT!

Summary: About:I have been working with computers for over 2-3 years so I consider myself still a young novice so this is just my experience I am not trying to give anyone definite advice just my feelings towards this item. Use time: so far ive had it for about a month and it is still going strong with very little problems if any. Purchase:For me computer parts that are too technical and provide too much power do not even pass my vision because I will not make use of it.
Summary: Pro: great value for what you can achieve with this board. better VRM components than the Extreme4 sibling. the VRM on Extreme6 actually doesn't get hot, slightly warm at best. so no worries on additional cooling on the VRM. Con: bad vcore voltage swing, and very inaccurate Vcore voltage reading. Notes: i just finished building a high end rig with this board, paired with a i7 3770K that's overclocked to 4.8ghz prime95 V27.9 stable.
Replaced my broken Motherboard with this one and it works well

Summary: I like all of the USB 3.0 ports, the SW seems fine. It comes with a USB 3.0 port for the front but it is not full size so I installed it in the back. My brother-in-law liked the look of this mother board but the clear portion of the case is against the wall so it won't be seen.
Non-K overclocking works; problem with CM Hyper 212 cooler; tech reviews are out of date

Summary: I recently bought the z77 AsRock Extreme6 from another source. Amazon is not your best deal on this item. I paid U.S. 130 with shipping included. Pros: Non-K overclocking really works. I own an Intel i5-3550 with a base clock of 3.3 GHz and a max turbo of 3.7 GHz. The Extreme6 delivers the maximum possible overclock of four bins for a non-K CPU. The motherboard clock remains at 100 MHz, but the maximum multiplier increases from 37 to 41.
Summary: I have had this MOBO for about 3 months now. I gotta say im lovin it! I didnt have any real issues installing it into my case. Make sure to utilize the updates on the Disk. Otherwise you're gonna be wondering why only 2 USB 2.0 ports work and nothing else, to include ethernet! Also, watch for the frequency of your RAM, for some reason the MOB defaulted my RAM to 1333Mhz. It also decided to only utilize 1 core in my 3570k.
