Pros: Full feature set with SLI capabilities
Booted right up after initializing and rebooting with installed hardware.
BIOS is solid and took all my tweaking without needing to be cleared.
Devices are quick and responsive, good performance benches.
Same color scheme as the GENE V (3570K) it replaced..
Past experience with ASRock and it's RMA dept. #TopNotch..
Cons: SLI will be tight but you already know this being mATX, I will run a single GPU.
Audio header placement up next to top pci-e (x16/) slot..
No on-board reset buttons.
Overclocking section is lacking a few specific controls but has most of the basics.
Other Thoughts: I have yet to load all the software to utilize the boards features.
Having issue with Vdroop and VID when downclocking / idle but I'm still learning how to overclock (1150). (2011) ASRock Fatal1ty has the BIOS option (specifics) I need.. Just saying..
3570K + GENE V @ 4.4GHz -vs- 4690K + Fatal1ty Z97M @ 4.4GHz. Yes you can feel / see the slight boost in performance. I only upgraded because I good a good deal on my 3570K and wanted to make the change, did not need to.
(This is not even my gamer rig but my 'daily driver').
Simple and plain air-cooled 300R.
