Summary: Great system board for upcoming pc building or gaming. I just bought this because of the 6x USB 3.0 ports and crossfire. Pros: Its black with support overclocking. It supports 1600Mhz ram and upgradable to 32Gb. Four USB header 1x USB 3.0 and 3x USB 2.0. Crossfire and SLI compatible.
Summary: I ordered this to replace a Gigabyte Z77X-UP4 TH motherboard I ordered just over a year ago. The old motherboard had its USB ports start failing on me, along with the msata slot on the board failing outright, taking the msata drive I had installed with it.
Summary: After having a significant amount of bad luck with motherboards I picked this one since it had dual bios. Like a few other reviewers, the primary bios was corrupt out of the box, but the secondary bios flashed itself over on the first boot and fixed itself.
Hackintosh customers be aware!!! Choose Z*7x-UD5H or even ud4h instead of this board!!

Summary: This is a stable mobo, for now. Hopefully time will proof. Everything is there. Fully functional plus sli ready with a reasonable price. Oh, and there's only ONE CPU FAN HEADER. Just to let you know before I go through my main complaint.
Summary: performance is really good. It is pushing an i5 3570K cpu with a HD 7870 gpu. Stable and smooth. The bios interface is interesting though. Simple with detailed settings for overclocking. I haven't started over clocking yet, so can't give any comments on it. Board doesn't get super hot.
Summary: That's because "some" 3rd-party software programs have still not ironed-out all the bugs of a 64-bit programming structure, and they can sometimes be somewhat quirky. But this is becomming much less of an issue as time goes on.
Summary: I had a huge issue with an Asrock motherboard. 2 graphics card were fried before I realized it was the motherboard. Replaced it with this board. Great choice. There is one huge issue though... even though there are 4 case fan connectors, only one of them allows for voltage control (3 pin fans).
