ASRock Z68 PRO3 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:

Rock solid stability - I haven't had a motherboard this reliable since my Abit NF7-S. BIOS is well laid out. ASRock extras like XFast USB & LAN, RAM drive software, etc.

Cons:

Fan control is a bit weak - lets you set fan levels (e.g. Level 6) without any indication what that means. Used to have trouble staying asleep (it would go to sleep, then wake right back up), but the latest BIOS has fixed that.

Other Thoughts:

Running my i5 2500K at 4.0GHz. Haven't even tried going higher. Using 16GB (4x4GB) GSkill Ripjaw DDR3 1600. Had to update the BIOS before it would boot using more than 1 stick of memory, but it works fine now.
