5 out of 5 eggsUpdated reveiw.

Pros: Nice motherboard. I don't care to go in to detail, but after RMA and getting this thing set up I am very pleased with all the options, especially with storage and raid. This motherboard hopefully will be everything I thought it would be. I am going to put 6 120g SSD on raid 0, and 2 2g WD reds for backup and storage. Currently have 4 SSD in raid 10 with LSI controller and 2 SSD-120 for backups.

Cons: First board was defective, Asrock's reply to negative review out of touch with reality. It wasn't a user error, or trouble figuring out how to put it together. There were two screws left off of top heat-sink and when you do that heat-sinks come off. In my case pulled loose pulling a mosfet off of the board rendering it useless. Probably did run in the factory, they should check and make sure all attachments are in place.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. Has all the bells and whistles

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: looked good, LSI on-board, after I got the 2nd board really works as advertised, don't plan to overclock, but may test it. I usually buy Gigabyte and now wish I would have done so this time. About ready to say goodbye to Newegg. They replaced, but also sold it to me. I am sick and tired of companies saying it is the manufacturers fault.At least newegg did refund after I pd for 2 and sent 1 in.

Cons: DOA, expensive

Other Thoughts: New egg replaced. Should have done advance replacement, Asrock QC is lacking

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard!

Pros: Pros: Best motherboard in the world period! If you require more than 6 hard drives this is the board for you!

Cons: Make sure to fully read the manual! Setting this board up wrong can be disastrous.

Other Thoughts: It took me about a day to figure out the board. The board is FULLY loaded with features. Please plan out your design and make sure you have the correct case.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful socket LGA 2011 Motherboard

Pros: Very easy to set up and overclock. I have my 4960X running at 4.7 GHz and have stress tested it and it's rock solid. One more click to 4.8 and not so much.

Unlike others I quite like the BIOS and find it easy to use. I don't have a case speaker so whatever squeaks and squawks it may make I don't have to listen to them.

The quality of the board is A1, the components are A1, what more can I say. Able to take four video cards in SLI at 16x! This is a serious motherboard for the gamer and perhaps overclockers.

The color scheme is a plus for me, if pure black is a color scheme!

This is my first ASRock motherboard, so I was a little concerned. No need. I love it. I generally use a Gigabyte board, but they don't have one with eight memory slots, so ASRock it is. I left Asu* several years ago after getting three bad boards in a row.

The supplied software all works! This is a first I think. Love it.

Cons: Price is the only negative. If you don't want the LSI onboard RAID and 4 PCIE 16x slots, then I recommend the EVGA Black.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended for the person that wants/needs the fastest thing that's not powered by a server CPU.

Next time I'm building, I will definitely have ASRock on my short list of what to look at.

2 out of 5 eggsFreeze frustration

Pros: When rendering video this board rocks. This board likes to work for a living. I've never had a problem with this board while under a load.

Cons: This board has a tendency to freeze when running low power programs like Word and Firefox. It's extremely frustrating. I've done research on the problem but have had no success in fixing it, and from the tech questions I'm seeing online about this same problem this is not an isolated problem.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize that you having difficulty with mainboard.
Please download and update the latest BIOS at link " http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/X79%20Extreme11/?cat=Download&os=BIOS " .
Set the UEFI BIOS default.
Test with single memory module.
Check the CPU and system are not overheating.
If you have any technical issues or warranty questions please contact our Tech Support at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome board

Pros: I've been dwelling on buying this motherboard for a long time. I have read many bad reviews with people complaining about bent cpu pins but after receiving this I suspect operator error. My cpu pins were all perfect. I put off buying this because of this fear. I am glad that my fear was unwarranted.
My other concerns of course was the price of the board and the cpu I wanted. The board being $600 and the cpu $1069 that's a lot to spend on just two components. Well when I was able to buy a cpu for $475 I took the plunge on the board.
Looking closely at the board you can see the quality and engineering that went into this board. Every inch of real estate was used and it all looks top notch. One of the main reasons I wanted this board was all the sata ports on it. Unfortunately the 8 LSI ports are complicated to setup for a hardware raid not what I was expecting. I don't have the patience to setup this kind of raid. The other raid chip is easy to setup. I ended up in the end using windows 7 software raid. Even in hardware raid mode the boot time was very short compared to add in raid cards.
The bios has all kinds of setting and being able to use the mouse is great. I suggest before installing your os you play around and explore the bios. Overclocking is super easy but after some testing with Intel's burnin program I put it back to stock. I'll do more testing later but my best test result was at stock speeds. I only played with the cpu multiplier and never with the ram which I suspect was why stock cpu speed returned the best results.
I also found windows 8 installs without any concerns but since I really don't like windows 8 I uninstalled it and did windows 7. Windows 7 has problems installing. It will install ok until you try to use the disk that came with the board. The first 2 times I just did the automatic install less the chrome install and it failed. The computer would hang on shut down. The third try I manually installed each driver and rebooted after each. After all the drivers were installed I did windows update and everything worked great.
One of the other things that is different about this board is the ability to control the cpu and the fans from both bios and windows. I have water cooling and a very large case, Cosmos II, so fan control is important. At first boot the fans are full blast and very noisy. What I did was set all the fans in the bios to the lowest speed and then used the Asrock Overclocking program to better control speed and temp in windows.
Pay close attention to the manual when installing ram. The ram needs to be split up for quad speed. With the tape covering 4 of the ports on the left side I made the mistake thinking I needed to put my 4 sticks on the right side, WRONG!! Check the manual.
One of the cool features of the bios is the hardware info scanner. You roll your mouse over the picture of the board and it tells you what is installed there. Some are genetic and others are specific. Like my pcie OCZ SSD comes

Cons: Price
No thunderbolt

Other Thoughts: This is obviously not your everyday motherboard but if you want the best buy this thing!

5 out of 5 eggsBEST BOARD FOR 3-WAY 4-WAY SLI

Pros: -Native pci-e 3.0 support with zero hacks needed. PCI-E x16 to all GPUs up to 4-way SLI delivers the best performance possible.

-CPU requires less voltage at 5ghz than my previous RIVE.

Cons: -price
-Asus has better bios support

5 out of 5 eggsExtreme Awesomeness

Pros: - 7 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (2 x PLX PEX 8747 bridges),
- Support 4-Way SLI/CrossFireX in full x16 PCIe 3.0 speed
- 8 SAS2/SATA3 from LSI™ SAS 2308 PCIe 3.0 Controller
- Creative Sound Core3D 7.1 CH,
- Supports Premium Headset Amplifier
- Supports Quad Channel DDR3 2500+(OC)

- 8 USB 3.0 (4 Front, 4 Back),
- 10 SATA3 (2 from Intel® X79, 8 from LSI)
- Easy to use and Interactive UEFI, UEFI System Browser
- Easy UEFI for OC

Cons: OK, it's a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. I listened to dozens of people that told me it was overkill. They were dead wrong. You sometimes do get what you pay for...

Other Thoughts: This board has been awesome for me. I have it configured with an i3770k @ 4200GHz w/ G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133, RAID 1 w/ 2TB srives an online hot spare 2TB, 120 GB SSD with Win 8 Pro. Watercooled. I've had rigs before where I run out of slots or ports. Not anymore... I'm looking forward to my next upgrade to the Z87 Extreme 11 Motherboard With Dual Thunderbolt Support And 22 SATA Ports when I'm ready to upgrade CPU's again.

4 out of 5 eggsWorkstation beast

Pros: Ports, lots of ports and options...most importantly - LSI Raid with dedicated channel to CPU. I'm running Intel Raid 1 for OS on 6gb Intel ports, 1 optical, and 2 storage drives on 3gb Intel ports. Still 1 3gb port empty for hot-swapping...

Then, 2 separate Raid 1's on the LSI card for dedicated / hassle free database files and management. Last, but not least, I have a hot swap Raid 1 on the LSI card, ready to go if any of my 2 Raid 1's fail. That makes me happy as hell :) And still 2 free ports left on the LSI card...

Recon 3D build in, and tons of other options and features.

Cons: Board and features take much time to familiarize and learn. This requires a lot of reading(PDF instructions included with CD, and research on forums)
It took me 5 hours to properly install OS, and configure and tweak every option with the available controllers on board...Board never crashed!

Other Thoughts: I did not buy this board for gaming, but rather to serve my small business needs of hosting a homegroup and shared database drives with 9 clients.
To that extent, the board outperforms anything else in the market. First, the dedicated LSI Raid card makes managing multiple LSI Raid 1 drives easy, and non-interfering with other mobo components in sharing channels.(i.e. asus x79 mobos are notorious for LAN drivers crashing if you enable raid on all ports)
Raid 1 is plenty for any database needs, and people who complain about the LSI card not having Raid 5, need to look at server solutions. Clearly, this is not a server board...
Second, the 32gb Gskill kit running on 2400mhz 10.12.12.31 was recognized on the XMP settings and works flawlessly. People who complain about large ram modules not hitting advertised speeds are using cheap stuff put together from previous units. If you spend 6 bills on mobo, you need to spend at least 3 bills on good ram(F3-19200CL10Q-32GBZHD)...
Tons of USB in the rear, and plenty of USB 3.0 ports...The TI drivers work OK! After installing X-fast software, the copy speeds hit 400 to 500mb/s(i'm running Samsung 840 pro drives only) No complains here...even copying from an external 3.0 USB, I was able to hit 300mb/s on x-fast Turbo mode...
Overall, every option is running stable on bios v2.8...no need to jump to v3.0
Note: change the x-fan settings to full-on inside bios monitoring tab, otherwise southchipset fan will start and stop on power-on!!!

4 out of 5 eggsI love this board

Pros: This is my second board, this first one I had to send back. But that's alright. You can overclock to the sky and all the ram is wonderful. In my system I use a lot of storage and the ASRock Extreme11 z77 and x79 you can put as many hard drives as you wish. No problem with setting-up gear or operating system. If you're into the 2011 socket you cannot beat this board for sure power. The only other boards that maybe better in this series are the dual cpu boards.

Cons: This board is expensive! Cannot find a chip-set water cooler for this board, one must be custom built.

Other Thoughts: If you can spare the money and you know what you are doing I would give this one a chance.
