This review is from: ASRock Z87 PRO3 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Inexpensive; plentiful features; PCIE 3.0 x16 slot; flexible overclocking support and fan control.
Cons: Relatively minor -- mounting screws have spines that can chew ground etching on the motherboard (don't over-torque!); USB 3.0 connector was a bit flimsy.
Other Thoughts: I bought this motherboard as initial foray into the world of overclocking on a budget. The board is well labeled so the build was straightforward without any problems. The UEFI provided was quite flexible and allowed a lot of tweaks, some of which I used.
A great buy for the money. It's been in operation for a few months and I have no complaints.
