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Non-K overclocking works; problem with CM Hyper 212 cooler; tech reviews are out of date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: Its been working fine for 2+ weeks now since I built the computer. Do your homework and if the specs are what you need/like, then get it.. quality seems good. Small feature I appreciate is the power/reset buttons on the board... made a POST test easy on initial build outside of the case. I don't know who's fault this is, but the Coolmaster Hyper 212 Evo is SUPPOSED to be compatible with this motherboard, but the holes didn't line up exactly perfect..
Summary: Great motherboard for the price with some awesome niche features like "dehumidifier mode". A minor complaint I have is that only the top PCI-E port runs at the full x16 speed, so SLI or CrossFire will suffer if I ever upgrade. My main complaint is that the board only has 2 4-pin fan headers and all the rest are 3-pin. I would have liked more, if not all, of the fan headers to be 4-pin so that I could automate my fan speeds better.
Summary: Was a little longer to arrive than estimated. Hence 4 stars. Product quality is excellent and there was no damage on delivery. other reviewers have mentioned 'dirt' on rear of board. I couldn't see even a spec on mine, was shiny and new. Never having used an asrock before wasn't sure what to expect. Having had an asus die on me I wanted a change. One note of caution. I have crossfire a setup but due to pcie layout I could not put them in suggested sockets.
Summary: I bought this a s a replacement for an Asus board the sound chip had failed on. First of all its working fine and I have not had one problem with it in nearly six weeks since I bought it. It has ample Sata connectors and has a very good crossfire system that works extremely well. It runs my board processor with a 1 ghz over clock and is very stable with a couple of clicks of a mouse in the Bios and its really simple.
Summary: This is a good budget board. Well made, easy to install and configure with some nice hardware control. Works great with OC i5 3570 CPU, MSI GTX760, G-skill DDR3;1600MHz, Corsair SSD and WD black 1TB SATA
Summary: It would be a great motherboard if ... not the dirt on the back of it. Considering it's a new that cannot be a compromise as it's a heart of the computer. First I thought it was used one, but looking at the front it's ideal, properly packed and all everything else is intact. Even protective plastic is still on the front radiators. After I got first, I asked for replacement which did looked even worse.
