This review is from: ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: 5eggs - Plenty of options with this board, other than well mentioned usb & sata 3.0 on this board, I like how Asrock designed and organized all extra headers down on the bottom side. hd audio, usb, cmos, onboard speaker
Cons: 3 eggs - Cannot have RAID-0 and SSD coexist and have both perform max of their capability. SATA3 SSD boots only with AHCI mode, and RAID-0 only on RAID. I can get a RAID disk (ctrl+l) assigned, and recognized with Intel utility under AHCI mode, but it will bottleneck at 150MB/s. There seems to be no workaround to it. The same 500GB x2 RAID worked on other system and benched around 290 MB/s on RAID-0.
2 eggs - Driver cd, be warned, do all drivers only. Thanks for putting that SmartView garbage software and zynga shortcut all over the place, you know I love these bloatwares so much.
Other Thoughts: The system panel header... maybe I got lazy over the years with it and got use to color coded pins, this time I really have to read which one is Ground PinREAD FULL REVIEW
