ASRock X58 Extreme 3 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Excellent mobo for the price. Feature rich, bios allows you to tune machine quite easily. I would definitely recommend this board if you are on a budget or not. I normally purchase either asus, msi, or giga-byte for my own machine. I have been building machines for nearly 14 yrs now. I would not recommend this board if I thought it was junk

Cons: placement of 8-pin connector is very close to processor socket; otherwise, excellent board for the price

Good Performance, fans fairly quiet

Pros: Good performance plays Diablo 3 smoothly on 2560X1600 No complaints have purchased gigbyte cards for the last few itirations. Going to purchase another and crossfire.

Cons: no complaints

Very Good Memory

Pros: Excellent ram, Heat spreader is very nice, low voltage for enthusiast ram. My x58 mobo picked ram timings with very little tuning

Cons: Heat spreaders are a little high if you have a very wide heatsink you could run into trouble
