Summary: This mobo had everything I needed and has worked flawlessly since I bought it a little over a year ago. I was delighted to have zero problems the first time setting everything up. I'm pretty sure it has a built-in recovery BIOS as well in the event something goes haywire. I was relieved that there isn't much bend when mounting some of your heavier components such as a large video card.
Summary: A lot of flexibility with what you need, and what you want to plug in. I liked that it has a HDMI output and shared graphics, a lot of expansion ports, and the board was thicker (heavy duty). Put it in a good case with cooling air flow and it has preformed flawlessly for over the last year. Running Windows 7 Pro (EOM), with 16 gig memory (4x4), and 2- 750 gig mirrored WD drives, with an Intel I5-2500 possessor (stock fan).
Summary: I built my machine for video production use and it has held up quite nicely. It came stock with the necessary audio and video integrations to get started right away. I didn't have to buy a video or audio expansion card, as it performs great on Adobe Premier out of the box. Never had issues with this motherboard as of yet.
Just Upgrade to the Latest Version of the Firmware
Camera Shy, Amazon

Summary: This motherboard has served me well since upgrading to the latest version of the firmware. Prior to that, I had sporadic trouble with the BIOS posting correctly. Nice board for my needs. Here's my build: Corsair Graphite Series 600T Mid-Tower Gaming Computer Case with Mesh Side Panel CC600TM Corsair Enthusiast Series 750-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply CMPSU-750TXV2 Gigabyte Intel Z68 ATX DDR3 2133 LGA 1155 Motherboards GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Intel Core i7-2600...
Summary: My 5 star rating might be a little premature, but that's okay. I bought an ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 from Newegg and it was DOA. Sent in for a replacement, got another DOA! On top of that, Newegg says I bent the cpu socket pins and would not replace or refund them. I'm currently going back and forth with their customer service trying to get my money back (Because I didn't break or bend the cpu socket pins on either one and I have the pictures/videos to prove it.
