Pros: - Good build quality - Nice clean layout with everything I needed easily accessible - Very easy to assemble, system was up and running in a very short amount of time with nearly no issues - Love the option to have three M.2 drives

Cons: Lost one egg because: - Updating the BIOS from 1.80 to 2.00 resulted in all of my modifications to BIOS settings being lost. - The UEFI interface is filled with non-explanations for various options, like "no help string", or a gems like: Option: Redirect scrubber control Help string for this option: Control DF::RedirScrubCtrl[EnRedirScrub]

Overall Review: - Asrock doesn't fill out the system information part of the DMI table. It looks like this: Handle 0x0001, DMI type 1, 27 bytes System Information Manufacturer: To Be Filled By O.E.M. Product Name: To Be Filled By O.E.M. Version: To Be Filled By O.E.M. Serial Number: To Be Filled By O.E.M. SKU Number: To Be Filled By O.E.M. Family: To Be Filled By O.E.M. - The BIOS (both the latest version 2.00 and version 1.80 that shipped with the product ) has firmware bugs in it (from the Linux dmesg output) which Linux can work-around: ACPI: [Firmware Bug]: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored [Firmware Bug]: ACPI MWAIT C-state 0x0 not supported by HW (0x0)
