There aren't a lot of dual socket LGA2011 motherboards on the market so this is probably still one of the best options. I love how many NICs it has. It has a BMC. No sound but that is expected. USB 3.0 would be nice but I would probably never even use it. I would give it 5 stars if it weren't for one issue.... the firmware. It randomly decides that all of the fans (case and CPU) need to spin at 100%. The only way to get them back to your settings is to restart. Anywhere from 1 day to 1 week later, it does it again. Yes, I replaced the motherboard with a brand new one. No, it didn't fix the problem. ASRock support was helpful at first but they don't know what the problem is and I haven't heard back in awhile. Solution: add low noise adapters to fans and just let them run at full speed.
Decent motherboard. Ugly as can be, but it does the job on my two CPUs. I actually have the one which isn't 4L/D16, with the only difference being, I can only hold half as much RAM.
