Pros: It does have plenty of features and it runs great with my 6800k and 32gb of 2133, BUT...
Cons: It hated my 7850k and the same 32gb of 2133 memory. I tried everything that ASRock forums said to do, even returned my APU thinking it was a bad memory controller. the fastest I could ever get my ram to run was 1866 with the second XMP profile enabled.
Other Thoughts: Turns out it was my ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ that wouldn't let my 32gb of memory run @ 2133 with this APU but I had no problems with the 6800k in and running it at 2133. So I know it was that board because my new one, the MSI A88X-G45 GAMING FM2+, runs both the 7850k and my 32gb of 2133 just fine! Deducted eggs for my headaches, making me think it was my memory, and making me think it was my 7850k. Fix your bios. I'm sure ASRock makes a great product but so far I haven't gotten one that has stayed consistently functional and this was my third product from them. Strike three. Although it will be my new garage pc for my PCV5 and diagnostic reader. with the 6800 and different 2133 ram. Okay fine I'll add another egg back on.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs great and processes information.
Cons: The first one was a defect, so I thought

Pros: Runs my 32GB of ram @2133 instead of 1866, runs my 7850k without a bios update. Lots of Sata and USB 3.0. Plenty of PCIe slots. The UEFI is user friendly. Came with 'free' Assassin's Creed. Pretty, not that I'll see it inside of the case. It's also built pretty stout.
Cons: None at the moment. I can't be the only one that has purchased this mobo, can I?
Other Thoughts: I have an ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ mobo that I actually regret buying now, Not that this was out when I made the switch to FM2+ but when I got it I also got a FM2 6800k in anticipation of getting the FM2+ 7850k when it came out. Problem is with the 6800k in it ran my memory at the correct speed but then my mobo went haywire with the 7850K in and it took all kinds of persuasion just to get it to run at 1866. Went on ASRock forums and they said I had bad ram and said that was rubbish and that they needed to release another bios update. that was my second ASRock board and my last! Anyway I used to be and MSI user exclusively but then I ran into a couple of bad boards in the AM3 era. I'm hoping that doesn't happen with this one.READ FULL REVIEW
