4 out of 5 eggsGreat board, improper handling in factory

Pros: Good shipping from Newegg to FPO/APO.
Board came packaged properly
Board posts and recognized my 18xxmhz of corsair dominator platinum (32Gig)
Board posted and was able to create a raid 0 array on two intel 5 series 240 gb ssds.
Great layout and looks good
Bios layout is functional

Cons: Board heatsink pipes had oil residue from handling at the factory when packaged.
Scratches on the decals just like my 990FX version that came in today 4/8/2014
one egg off for scratching and manhandling an expensive motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I have yet to do a full install with this board due to waiting for the NZXT H440 cases that have been on order since Feb 27th (both white and red versions) as well as the NZXT AIO liquid coolers. I will update after I do a full install and test all the board functions.

3 out of 5 eggsQuest for the elusive RAM

Pros: Great mobo, you can tweak it to your heart's content. Installed without an issue and the bios where easy to sort out and I am new to this. I was worried with all the bad reviews I've seen, but I was lucky, everything works.

Cons: The BIGGEST issue was finding the correct RAM for it. I don't know how ASRock tests their boards, but the "Z87 Extreme9/ac Memory Compatibility" list is a joke. My first mistake was to believe that a manufacturer would know if a component was compatible. The RAM I selected, G.Skill F3-2400C10Q-16GTX, which was on their list, could not of been tested on this board. The mobo only acknowledged 2 sticks at any given time. I thought it was the RAM, but they checked out fine. I headed over to the G.Skill page and THEY stated it would not work. Thanks ASRock.....You can bet the next RAM I purchased was researched at G.Skill.

Other Thoughts: I had to RMA the RAM and was soaked for restocking. I don't blame newegg, they didn't know, but ASRock should have to eat my restock fee for NOT researching their own product. Just make sure you check to see if the RAM you are planning to purchase will work, but NOT on the ASRock "Z87 Extreme9/ac Memory Compatibility" list.

The way I see it, we are performing the R&D for ASRock. They put a list together and hope maybe a couple of the RAM selections will work. But it costs to RMA mistakes. I paid a premium for a great mobo, the least the company could do is a little more research on the compatibly of the components that will go on their mobo. If they want me to research the RAM for them, pay my restocking fees!

I don't like to complain, but I don't like to waste money either. This is a great mobo, there's no doubt about it, but, you should not have to guess at what will work on it. I know that the G.Skill F3-2133C9Q-16GZH work on this mobo, that's what I am running, but I had to check with G.Skill and guess what, it's not even listed on ASRock's. Be care with the ASRock "Z87 Extreme9/ac Memory Compatibility" list, it is not accurate.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Mainboard supports most of the memory on the market.
The memory support list is reference and they had been tested in our lab and passed. However, we're unable to test all the memory on the market, also later models would have releasing often from their manufacturers.
Moreover, we do our best effort to provide the information to customers.
If you have any technical issues please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

3 out of 5 eggsnot 100%

Pros: It has a lot of features almost all of them work.

Cons: I can't get this thing to shut down all the way every time it seems to go into sleep mode or something. I have updated the bios to the latest version but it did nothing for that problem. I don.t have any of my settings to go into sleep mode or any other to cause this. sometimes it dose turn off and sometimes it wont.

Other Thoughts: It also has built in blue tooth and WIFI the Bluetooth works fine but for the life of me I cant seem to access the WIFI on the motherboard. I can see the router but every time I try to submit the security key it won't setup.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear skyman,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please check the Windows power management setting.
Set the Deep Sleep Enable at UEFI BIOS, Advanced, Chipset Configuration, Deep Sleep [Enable in S4/S5), save and exit.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Mobo very please

Pros: Nice layout, nice bundle, love the usb 3.0/flash reader module, 3-way and 4-way sli capable. Had to return a Gigabyte OC force due to instability right out of the gate. I thought my memory might have been bad but it was just the board. I used all the same components and this one is rock solid stable.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Easy installation process, nice slot layout and excellent software bundle. I needed the board to run 3 way sli with galaxy gtx 770s. Installation was a breeze and system is running great. Nice upgrade from P67 board. I really needed more Sata 6 ports and this thing delivers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: First board I got had a dead RAM slot, RMA'd that board and now the new board works perfect. All of my motherboards are ASRock now, they're excellent.

I have used both the i7-4770k and i7-4771 on this board, as well as 32GB RAM and 3x GTX 780TI in triple SLI.

Cons: Wish my first board didn't come shipped with a dead RAM socket.

Also was told by NewEgg that I damaged the CPU Pins on the board I shipped back to them. Kinda bumming me out since that wasn't the reason for my RMA of the board and I believe it the CPU pins got damaged when I was packaging the board to send it back. Shame on NewEgg RMA Team for this, if they charge my credit card for the board then I'll never buy from NewEgg again.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA - AGAIN

Pros: Sounds good until you plug it in

Cons: DOA. No video output, case speaker doesn't even beep. Posts debug codes indicating chipset init errors, then goes on to post SATA and PCIe error codes.

Did ALL of these and still does not work:

Please trouble shoot the mainboard to check if its resolved.
Unplug the ATX power.
Clear the CMOS.
Test with single memory module (non-ECC, un-buffered).
Remove VGA card, test with onboard VGA.

This is my 3rd BOARD from this MFG and I will NEVER buy again, STAY AWAY! It happened to my Extreme6 as well.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

1 out of 5 eggsNot Recommended

Pros: None at this time

Cons: I bought this motherboard in the beginning of Sept believing I would be returning from overseas in the middle of Sept knowing that the return policy would be in place.. That didn't happening and my tour of duty didn't end until close to Thanksgiving. I wasn't worried because I knew there was a warranty on the motherboard.

I bought two computers to build, each motherboard was from a different company. The first one worked perfect and had the entire computer build in just an afternoon.

Then I made a mistake, believing I wouldn't have a problem with the AsRock motherboard I put the entire computer together. When I turned on the computer the motherboard didn't work. Not very smart on my part. I understand that sometimes things happen and problems exist.

This was a couple days after Thanksgiving. This computer was to be a gift for Christmas to a family member. After I sent an email to AsRock I got the message to take everything out and clean the CMOS. I did as the email said numerous times. After several emails to AsRock and taking 15 times of taking apart and putting back everything, which also included using the power supply, memory and processor from the other computer I build, to do all the steps that was required in the emails. I finally got an email that customer service would contact me. I waited a week and sent another email that I hadn't been contacted. After a few days I got an email to fill out 2 forms, which I did. That was several weeks ago. I've sent 2 emails to customer service and still no answer. It has been a month and nothing has been done.

I have to admit this is the worst customer service I've ever had from a company. I didn't get to send the computer as a gift, it's still sitting on my work bench waiting for an answer. I should have bought another motherboard, but I believe that I shouldn't have to.

I'm only writing this review so that no one else makes the same mistake I did an purchasing a product from this company. I'm not the only person to have this problem.

I do want to say that Newegg has done a great job in their service and customer relations that I have with them. This in no way reflex's the great service that I have received.
