Summary: Very easy to install. Lots of ports for fan power, SATA3 and USB devices. Very stable. I was able to plug in my SSD hard drive from a Dell that died. Plug and play recognized most of the hardware on the new motherboard so it was easy to install the drivers on the DVD.
Summary: UEFI is very user friendly and gives detailed information on every setting. I was new to the new Haswell architecture when I bought this, and beforehand I didn't think Intel overhauled Sandy And Ivy so much. Very stable and meets my high expectations for ASRock motherboards.
Summary: Pros: The Boot time is Really Fast especially when paired with an SSD. POST is pretty Quick and the board does support Windows 8 Secure Boot. Awesome sound The Pure Sound Module allows for surprisingly great on board sound quality.
