ASRock Z68 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Intel Z68
  • Core i7 / i5 / i3 (LGA1155)
  • DDR3 2133(OC) / 1866(OC) / 1600 / 1333 / 1066

Pros:

-Easy Overclocking through the AsRock UEFI BIOS
-USB 3.0 works
-Fast booting! Currently have 1TB of magnetic platter drives and a 120gb SSD and I boot in 5 seconds.
-AsRock Extreme Tuning utility works well.
-Tons of options in the UEFI BIOS.
-Allows for straightforward overclocking. Took my i5-2500K from 3.3 to 4.2 ghz in a click, and I know I can go much higher. Recognizes XMP 1.2 right away on my cosair ram.
-SATA III ports are really fast.

Cons:

-USB 3.0 front header is too short to mount on the front side of my case, bummer.
-Driver disc has bloatware which is unbelievable.
-Floppy connection did not work with my old CD drive, this was not a big issue because I should have upgraded to SATA by now anyhow.

Other Thoughts:

I thought long and hard about this board, flipping between the ASUS PRO GEN3 and this. What the choice came down to was price due to the fact I need to save up for my future Ivy Bridge upgrade. I simply could not justify another 100 dollars for a minimal upgrade. AsRock site is low quality but it gets the job done. I am really happy with this board and thank the other newegg users for reviewing the item for me! You feedback helped me a lot!
