    from completed build Project-PC: The College Upgrade

    I thought it would be a good idea to purchase a high end motherboard to match the aesthetics of my system, and also provide a solid base for upgrades. While it is very high quality and does have the looks to match, it is just a motherboard that connects components together in the end and doesn't add much else to the system.

    Looks: The black and red color scheme looks VERY nice and has just enough accents to make the system look great. The top heatsink is exposed nicely out back of the CPU cooler, and the lower heatsink is large enough to be noticeable under the GPU in the first slot. Since the RAM slots are hidden, those heatsinks and the viable PCIe slot are the only red on a nearly black motherboard.

    Connectors: All the wires connect where you would expect them to for the most part. The top 8pin connector DOES interfere with adding a 140mm fan to the top of my fairly small case, but larger cases should support this feature, especially water cooling ready ones. My Corsair cables kinda suck and are very tight, so I can't vouch for the quality of those. The SATA ports are sideways so that they finally don't get in the way of my GPU. There are plently of fan headers and a total of 3 fully controllable ones though software.

    Software: The ASRock software keeps changing from motherboard to motherboard that I own, and this version has worked as expected. It has all the features that I need like fan speed graphs, overclocking, firmware updating, and the usual for such a motherboard.

    Performance: It's a motherboard. I haven't noticed any bottlenecking or problems. Thats all I have to say.

    Overall, its a good motherboard, but comes at a price premium that other motherboards can deliver for a lower price. And at this time anyways there is a new socket so this review is fairly pointless.

    from completed build Project: Pablo

    This board has everything I need and has performed great. M.2 for expansion, Solid placement and layout of headers, and a easy to use and update BIOS. Only downside is the lack of an LED or post Sound and could have some more fan headers other than that has been great.
