Most Critical Review

looks nice, but acts like a priss

ASRock Z97M OC Formula LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: nice use of stylish aluminum heat sinks, good packaging, works with the faster Intel CPUs. very pretty UEFI layout. fastboot is disabled by default, making it possible to get into UEFI while doing initial install

Cons: not compatible with popular M2 SSD (Samsung SSD 850EVO M.2 Sata) not compatible with popular memory sticks (G.Skill DDR3-2400 8GB) onboard headers and connectors in strange locations SATA connectors facing off edge of board instead of outward and away from board

Overall Review: caveat emptor - read up before purchasing. I really "assumed" by now that mainstream mb's would be compatible with nearly all mainstream components - oops. ya know what they say about "assuming" ! then again, maybe this isn't a mainstream mb ?
