Very good board

ASRock Z68 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASRock Z68 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Very stable. Good UEFI. Good overclocking options. Works fine from first boot. Supports socket 775 cpu coolers - great if you water cooling. Lucid Virtue disconnects discrete GPUs when needed. Very easy UEFI update.

Cons: Don't choose "Install all" option from driver CD. Just load what you need. Make sure you load Virtue driver last.

Overall Review: i7 2600K @4.8 8 GB Corsair Vengeance 1866 2x GTX 480 Vanilla SLi Auzentech Forte 7.1 PSU BFG 1200 EX Windows 7 x64 SP1

Pros: Easy to install and use. Great sound quality, games or music. UI under W10 PRO 64 took some time to get used to. Using with just no name regular headphones, and still sounds great. Miles ahead of any on board sound. Outside of PC case location is plus.

Cons: None at this time.

Overall Review: If, you need good sound, get it. Recommend.
