ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: BIOS looks nice and easy to navigate. P/S 2 Port USB 3.0 Port Not sure what DuraCap really means, only time will tell.

Cons: More USB 3.0 ports would be nice More PCI-e 1x would be nice The 4GB x 2 sticks didnt POST at first along with my identical 4GB x 2 sticks, so I know this makes no-electronic-sense, somehow I tried 1 by 1 and all possible combinations of slots and order. It worked with a certain combination.

Overall Review: One bent pin in the corner of LGA1155 socket, but I am not putting this as a con, apparently this has to be my fault by default. I didn't even bother calling them and beg for a replacement after seeing other people having the pin problem, because I know they will call me a "dear valuable customer" then lecture me on their warranty policies and how cpu socket is fragile, brah brah brah, 100% tested (only the sampled board is 100% test? or 100% of shipped product tested with minimal requirement?). Spent another 30 dollars on magnifying glass and tweezers, and 2 hours of labor fixing a bent pin. It worked, just bad luck. Now if something else like the PCI-e doesnt work, I cant even RMA because of it. and, No, dont ask me to contact you, ASRock, unless you have something real to offer, or else our business is finished on the day when the board arrived damaged.
