    Couldn't get any better than this honestly. Absolutely stunning build quality, UEFI is intuitive and easy to use. More than enough slots for any build. When upgrade down the road to something utilizing DDR4 memory I'll most likely be using an ASRock build, that's how impressed I am with this board. The only downside is the 'super fast' m.2 slot is PCIE, so if you run SLI it dumps one of the cards to x8, but that's it I think.

    i was gonna go with the AsRock Extreme 4 but seeing the mixed reviews on it on new egg saying they where very faulty boards because of a manufacturer mistakes i didn't wanna take a chance so i payed about the same price for the AsRock extreme 6 but it was worth it great well made board for the price i payed will buy AsRock products again.

    Motherboard: The Extreme6 was almost certainly overkill. I could've just as easily gotten an H97 and been done with it since I can't overclock anyways, but I did want a Z97 for the future in case Intel came out with some crazy new i7 I just had to have in the future. And hey, it was on sale. Overall I gotta love ASRock, the packaging was incredible, nothing left to chance for the safety of this motherboard and the BIOS was nice and simple.

    this motherboard looks great, and has tons of features, especially considering the price. the bios isn't my favorite but it still has all the options you need, my only problem i can think of is the fan headers, there is 2 pwm (4 pin) and 4 (3 pin) fan headers, of these the CPU fan headers are one of the 4 pins and one of the 3 pins, the mismatched fan headers wouldn't be much of a concern ( just use a fan hub) but the two CPU fan headers cannot be adjusted independently (as far as i can tell) this means if you want to run an AIO then you can max the pumps speed while letting the fans change speed.

    Solid Motherboard, lots of options, Great dual bios, very hard to find any cons right now.

    Great motherboard, I know a lot of people dont like ASRock or seem to have given it a bad rep, but for $100 this motherboard has a LOT of features that I was looking for, on board RAID, USB 3.0 & 2.0 Headers, SLI support along with a SATA interface & PCI Inteface M.2 slot.

    Feature heavy: Dual M.2's...in 2014... WHAAAAT?

    A solid board for the price. Competes solidly with the Asus Maximus VII Hero and MSI Z97 Gaming 7.

    Shipped with quite a bit of bloatware, but we all know how to use control panel.

    BIOS is intuitive and easy to use. Shame we have a locked CPU in this machine (that could change soon). In terms of usability I would say the BIOS skin is between the marginally better Asus RoG BIOS and something like the Gigabyte G1 BIOS.

    Feature heavy is no understatement, ships with tons of cool stuff in the box, like a converter to run USB 3.0 front connector to the USB 2.0 port on the motherboard... I just don't understand... because this motherboard has a front panel USB 3.0 connector.

    Speaking of USB 3.0 connector, this one needs some better security, the 3.0 cable literally is about to fly out of it's socket.

    Pretty good MoBo, haven't had any issues with it. Was pretty easy to set up. Wish it had built in WiFi/bluetooth.
