5 out of 5 eggsvery happy

Pros: lots of data ports. the z97 chip set is nice

Cons: I'm gonna write this here, it might have been something I was doing wrong, I'm not sure. I have an ssd plugged in to install an operating system. after installing windows 7 and all the drivers every time I restarted the computer it would have start up issues. I switched witch sata port the sad was plugged into and its been fine since. maybe it won't boot from certain sata ports? still a great motherboard

2 out of 5 eggsMy Experience

Pros: The listed features are great.

Cons: Here is where the problem lies. I put together my build 2 weeks ago, but when I tried to load the software, the system would not talk with the monitor. I have a video card with my build, so I moved the video card to a different PCIe slot. That would not work either. So, then I took out the video card completely and plugged the monitor directly to the MoBo. Still, there was no interaction between the monitor and the MoBo.

I set up the new build beside my existing computer and just switched the monitor from the back of one to the back of the other, so it is not the monitor either. The only conclusion is that it has to be the MoBo. That is the only common denominator.

The system would power up, but there was no way to monitor it, since the MoBo would not work with the display. The display is HDCP compatible, so there is no issue there. I purchased it new 3 years ago from Newegg with an 1156 MoBo and an Intel i5 CPU.

Other Thoughts: I like the features that this board provides, but have been unable to get it working with a monitor. I work overseas, on a Naval Base. So, it is also difficult for me to send or receive items through the U.S. Postal Service. It is possible, but takes quite a bit of time to receive packages.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat board!

Pros: nice features, two M.2 slots, once is super fast, unfortunately not too many cards currently available for these slots. Plextor M6e maybe the only option atm. Bios was a pleasure to work with.

Cons: so far so good, no cons. board is not quite as good looking as some other ones but in the closed case, that is not a big deal

Other Thoughts: After my poor experience with the other more renowned manufacturer it was a pleasure working with this board. Everything just worked and putting system together was a breeze. Great job Asrock!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Great Value

Pros: Decent voltage regulation and lots of advanced features for the ever decreasing price. Easy BIOS upgrade, and the UEFI is more feature laden than I will ever use. This board just plain works Advanced storage socket options when there are few products yet on the market to utilize them. Plenty of configurable fan headers. Lots of SATA USB 3.0 ports. I could go on but this board is worth at least 30% more than you will pay for it.

Cons: Memory socket spacing is at minimum Intel spec to the processor socket. If you have ram with heat sinks that stick up an aftermarket cooler may conflict with the ram in the first dimm socket. Easy to get around if you know this ahead of time.

Other Thoughts: While I have not stressed this board or its CPU with overclocking, it is made for it. As such it's reasonable that I have had zero issues with stability. The pricing on this board is amazing for the features you get, IF this fits your needs. True dedicated gamers wanting to use multiple video cards should look elsewhere. If you want advanced storage options on a stable board with good quality components at a great price, go for it. Conduct a search for current reviews and you will be pleasantly surprised at what you find in addition to what you see here. I am not an IT guy but have been building computers since 1994.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst time Asrock buyer

Pros: 1. Baby Blue color components.
2. Three heat sinks.
3. Beautiful power, and reset buttons.
4. Debug LED.
5. Intel LAN.
6. Intel/Z97 chipset.
7. UEFI

Cons: 1. One fan speed setting for both CPU fan connections.
2. Six instead of 7 fan connections.
3. Motherboard temperature sensor may be faulty - not sure.
4. -shaky screen.
5. Asrock technical support

Other Thoughts: I contacted Asrock technical support via their website form on Saturday, it's been 5 days and I have yet to receive a response from them.

I requested an RMA with Newegg because with the screen shaking, everything seems blurry and is very annoying.

Newegg is all too happy to sell you anything, but not so quick to resolve please the customer when an issue arises, even to long time (since 2003) and Premier customers. Because this is my work computer, I requested an Advanced (cross ship) RMA, but was refused. Their solution, purchase a motherboard, once they receive the defective one, they'll issue a refund. It may seem like it's a solution, but it's not, because the refund amount is for $15 less than what I paid for. This is disappointing, considering all the parts I've bought from them over the years and the thousands of dollars in sales from friends, family and clients I've referred to Newegg. So either I lose $15 or spend approximately 1 ½ weeks unable to work. I will be looking for an alternative vendor on pcpartpicker.com

5 out of 5 eggsBoard runs great!

Pros: I bought this board based on the number of SATA 3 ports. The extra I/O's didn't interest me due to the 'newness' of the technology.
If you know what you need and want to stick to a price point, the board is a good choice.

Cons: I have two issues:
1. It would have been nice to have a 2.0 4x or 8x slot instead of the 2x slot.
2. The TB2 port is basically useless due to the inability of Azrock and Intel to certify the adapter card.

Other Thoughts: My requirements for a computer are vastly different than most users posting here. I use my systems for Editing HD and 4K video. It is about performance not looks. I felt that this board was well made, especially for the price point. I usually upgrade my boards once a year.
Many of the complaints I have read about this board are either aesthetically related or created from not reading the manual or first doing your homework.
This board installed easily and has been rock solid since the installation over a month ago.
I installed the latest bios for the Devils Canyon chip and off I went.
It is coupled with 32gb of ram, a GTX 780 that is overclocked and a 4790K running at 4.7Ghz. with a Samsung 850 pro. Idle temps on this buid are 32C with a Corsair H110. This is despite the complaint from a user that couldn't install a 140mm fan and radiator. I have 2 140mm fans and a 280mm radiator installed. Not the board's fault.
There is over 25tb of drive space connected to the Intel controller and Asmedia controllers and I have yet to see a burp.
I would have preferred the TB2 option to be gone and a 4x or 8x PCI-E 2.0 slot added instead of the 2x slot.
Overall, this is a good medium priced board.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board, Bad SATA Placement

Pros: The board is not only very attractive, but feels solid and has a great amount of features for the price. It started right up with no problems and recognized the memory at 1866, the CPU at the right freq., etc. The BIOS is also very nice. Best interface I have seen in a bios. Appears more like an OS.

Cons: SATA placement is terrible for my Lian Li case. They are pointed towards the rear which goes right against the hard drives. It would be better to have them located more near the bottom edge of the board and facing out 90 degrees. The manual is a bit weak.

Other Thoughts: Impressed overall.

1 out of 5 eggsDOES NOT FIT WITH CLOSED LOOP COOLER ON TOP OF CASES

Pros: Looks fine, probably works fine.

Cons: Due to the overly large heatsinks 140mm fan + raditor won't fit on top of cases.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Nice bios, nice colors, sturdy too.

Cons: Could probably have better capacitors.

Other Thoughts: I don't think this is the motherboard but I figured I mention it anyways.

My new 780 doesn't like my soundblaster z in any slot but the one farthest from it. When put in any of the other it doesn't post.

Pretty sure it's the video card as it doesn't complain with my 570.

5 out of 5 eggsAsrock Z97

Pros: Asrock includes pretty much everything but the kitchen sink with their motherboards. In addition to getting lots of ports with their motherboards, a high quality I/O bracket, and lots of SATA cables and a very lengthy and well printed instruction manual that covers all the basics. Setup is an absolute breeze - and this thing is relatively easy to setup in any type of case you can throw at it. All the ports are very well laid out, and the case standoffs are relatively easy to connect, especially given that they are marked, something that I cannot say for previous boards I've owned - and that's coming from all the big name manufacturers. Start up with the SSD I am using (Samsung 840 Evo 120GB) is near instant and it will boot up instantly.

Overclocking is extremely easy for first timers or advanced users. Asrock includes a number of preset overclocking configurations which work very easily, but if they don't you can press the clear CMOS button on the board itself. The Devil's Canyon LGA 1150 processors were not available when I received the board, so I went with a i5-4670K and have it running on 3.8GHz with all cores unlocked and have the RAM (8GB G.Skill Ares DDR3 2400) going at full speed without any problems. The Hyper 212 that is beiing used right now will eventually be replaced with a much higher end liquid cooler so when that happens I will reevaluate the overclocking capabilities of this board.

Cons: Ports - Very, very disproportionate number of SATA ports to USB 3.0 ports. While all the ports on the back of the motherboard are USB 3.0, there's only six of them, where as you get a whopping, repeat, whopping 12 SATA ports. Which isn't really that useful unless you happen to be running a super tower with lots of drive bays like the Fractal Design Define XL or the NZXT Phantom 630. Otherwise for average users, unless you're running a server array, there's no way you will use all of those ports.

Overclocking cons - Asrock's overclocking cons aren't as many as there are pros. The menu options make overclocking super easy to do if you are a novice, and for advanced users, Asrock's UEFI BIOS program makes it really easy to achieve high overclocking settings depending on what cooler you're using. However, unless you're really quick on the triigger you can miss the Asrock startup splash screen without even thinking about it.

For the most part overclocking is never a sure thing, especially for first timers, but this motherboard makes it incredibly easy to reset the BIOS, but more than likely it will take you several attempts before you get a stable overclock or even activate turbo boost.

Other Thoughts: This is the rig I used for testing:

Case: Fractal Design Define R4 Blackout Edition
PSU: EVGA Supernova G2 750W
Motherboard: Asrock Z97 Extreme 6
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K @ 3.8 GHz
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ares DDR3-2400 MHz
SSD: Samsung 840 Evo 120GB
HD: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue
Optical: Plextor PX-940A BD-R Drive
GPU: EVGA Geforce GTX 760 Superclocked Edition
OS: Windows 8.1
