5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Lots of Features. easy install. no problems so far. will give it 5 eggs as of right now.

Cons: None so face. maybe that one fan connector in the middle of the board.

Other Thoughts: I know quiet a few people have had problems with this board, but so far mine has made it through a power outage and installing a new cpu fan. Maybe there was a bad batch or something. will update if i encounter any of the previously mentioned problems.

1 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Worked great out of the box, dr debug was helpful and I got my new system up and running quickly, without issues. This was on sale so for what it offered I was getting a pretty good deal. It was also recommended by Tomshardware in comparison to it's competitors.

Cons: After just less than two months the board fried. My wife went to plug a tiny portable speaker into the audio jack (the speaker had been working in said jack up to this point mind you) and when she did so there was an audible electronic crack or zap noise. The computer immediately died and I was left shocked and stupified. After using other computers and a voltage meter to check the components I was left looking at a dead motherboard. PS was functioning well, and so were all other components. The one thing that convinced me it was the board was the fact that Dr. Debug wouldn't light up. I removed everything but the power supply and Dr. Debug was blank. No error code was given. Thankfully I was able to RMA with Newegg for a refund rather than a replacement, because if you look at the reviews it's beyond apparent that this board is faulty.
I have no idea if the use of the audio jack was somehow involved, I can't imagine it would be, but either way that's when the motherboard decided to kick over and die.
If you buy this board, realize you have no gaurantee that it will last. Some come DOA, some die in a few months, and I figure most die within a few years. I'm trying to build a rig that's setup for future upgrades for the next 3 or 4 Christmases, but that won't happen if Ithe motherboard needs to be RMA'd every 2 months.
Sorry ASrock, you shipped this one out too quick, take more time on quality next go round.

Other Thoughts: If I'm honest, I'm not 100% turned off by ASrock, I'd consider their boards again. But I'll always be more careful reading the reviews. If I had trusted my gut when I saw only 3 eggs, I would have gone for a more trusted company, and saved myself some time and money. The extra $10-$20 for a MoBo with the same specs made by a more trusted brand name is worth it, if your machine will last the test of time.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent value at exceptional price

Pros: enthusiast level features but surprisingly affordable. (bought it on Christmas with $30 rebate.) nice BIOS utility, auto OC ready. fast boot up, good extra driver/utility package.

Cons: why cons can I think of when everything worked out flawlessly?

Other Thoughts: Bought extreme4 along with other 2 ASRock Z97 boards during Christmas to help my 2 little bros build the gaming rig they always wanted, so far all 3 running nicely on i5-4670 OCed to 4.40GHz.

I heard the unplug power thing from other reviews which had me worried, but my purchase has already been made before I read these reviews, tried unplug the power cable from PSU couple times, thanks lord it's not happening on me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board for first timer

Pros: Easy to build with, no problems fitting in components, blue color lowers temperatures. Holding up well despite my abuse: unknown to me, I had my entire new build hooked up to a badly wired socket that caused me to get shocked when touching the thumb screws on the back and I've had no problems with mobo power on/off

Cons: Wish the SATA Express port was controlled by the ASRock controller vs the chipset so I could use my SSD on that and leave 6 RAID capable ports. Running 5X 3TB WD RED in Raid 5. Going on 6 months of ownership.

HDMI in on the Z97s would have been nice :(

Other Thoughts: Other specs:
NZXT H440
I5 4690K
Some Ram
MSI R9 290X
RAID 5 3TB X5 WD RED
840 EVO 500GB

1 out of 5 eggsPower failure happened to me too

Pros: Great board for the 6 weeks it worked....

Cons: ...but then it died after I unplugged the power supply to put in a case fan. More specifically, my board fell victim to the it-just-won't-turn-on-anymore bug detailed on reddit.

I just submitted an RMA request to ASRock; hopefully they have better customer support than manufacturing processes.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully the next board works.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst time builder - Works great

Pros: First time building a PC here. Got this board due to price and my own sweet spot for what I wanted. So far not a single problem. I really liked the LED during my first time on as my monitor wasn't coming on yet the board said everything was fine. Turns out my monitor wasn't smart enough to detect a signal from a different input.

I like the documentation especially as a first time builder.

Coming from a Dell D630 bios to this one was wonderful. A whole new world for me.

Cons: I can't find anything about the "automatic" overclock settings in the documentation.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had the "lose power completely its dead problem so everything else is great.

Idles at 23c - 25c never seen it go above 45c
