Great motherboard with everything I was looking for: X99 chipset, 8 RAM slots supporting up to 128GB, 2 M.2 slots supporting NVMe SSDs (although the 2nd M.2 slot will run in SATA mode with CPU with 28 PCIe lanes), USB 3.1 type C, dual gigabyte ethernet, and WiFi/Bluetooth.
The X99 TaiChi along with the white S340 Elite is really what inspired this build. I love the bold, high-contrast graphics on the Tai Chi. And, it was a really good value for a well featured X99 motherboard. My only complaint is that the M.2 slot doesn't seem to be delivering on the full performance potential of the 960 EVO. I'm getting about 2,000 MB/s reads and 1,600 MB/s writes whereas Samsung's specifications say I should be getting 3,200 and 1,900 respectively.

First ASRock motherboard and I'm blown away. The BIOS is incredibly easy to use, it overclocks well, looks gorgeous and the built in bluetooth and wifi are very nice.
I wish it had a few more fan headers, but that's my only complaint. Can run 3-way SLI if I for some reason wanted to, can handle 2 m.2 drives, solid IO with plenty of USB ports, overclocks well and has been very stable.
