Thank you very much in advance!

I do think the memory problem justifies removing one star, and posting this review so others are aware of a possible problem.

The board is great, runs fast, sturdy and easy to mount.

It has a slender design, which fits into a standard ATX case. The connector layout is amazing, in my experience most Motherboards have the SATA headers placed in such a way that using the PCIe slot(s) with any modern graphics card covers most, or all, of your SATA2 headers, and sometimes even the SATA3 headers. There is more than enough room on the Motherboard for the infamously large Cooler Master Hyper 212+ (or EVO), and you will still be able to use RAM slot #0.

PCIe 3.0/Ivybridge capability will be really helpful in the future.

I did purchase the last one here on Amazon, and the restock looks like it will take 3-5 weeks, but if you can find this thing anywhere else, just go for it. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Quality product for a very nice price.

I picked this board for several reason, one is looked better in my white case and it has some features I found interesting.

I bought this with 750w PS, 8GB Kingston ram, Ivy Bridge I5 processor and couple other things.
But, when I first received it I found would get the lights would go on 11 times and off then on fully on the 12. Had them the MB and Processor replaced. I think it was the processor since it did the same thing when I hooked up the new M/B with the processor. After replacing the Processor and M/B, I found I had no video. I hooked up a speaker and got 4 short beeps. I figured this was a bios issue. The one came with 1.2 and Ivy is only supported on 2.1. I looked that up. I submitted and trouble ticket to Asrock. They don't have a call center. Which sounds bad. But, I can understand why. They replied on both my first issue and on the 2nd with the bios. To make it short, I submitted my address and receipts and they provided me with a new bios in a couple days. If you want the Ivy and want to avoid the bios issue, go for a Z77. Cost more, but those work out of the box. You should upgrade those bios as well if need.

What I lost with the Z68 over Z77:
1) Can't hook up 3 monitors that is supported by my CPU. Dual, works fine. But I prefer the big display instead of several smaller ones. I also use a 3d TV so it'll use Intel's tru3d when I get a blueray.

2) USB 3.0 is only on the back. No big deal, but I don't have any 3.0 devices. Also, the USB 3.0 controller is on the motherboard and not the processor. That is one of the major differences between Sandy and Ivy Bridge processors. Still have 2 ports anyways.

Another disadvantage with this board is it can't SLI or Crossfire since there is only one PCI express slot.

Hadn't considered this until having read techradar's 25sept11's review of 8 different z68 boards. This has worked well for me over a few weeks - no issues at all, with a intel i5-2500k.

Important features for me are 6 sata ports (2 sata3), hdmi+dvi+vga, lucid virtu if I go discrete, control for numerous fans, the graphical bios is cool, and other favorably reviewed items as seen in review above.

_However_, for my application specifically, and also pending the release of ivy bridge processors in less than 2 months, I think I would have preferred erring on the side of a cheaper solution for the meantime. Have been particularly interested in what the g530/h61 boards could do - these can be had for about $110 together (also going Asrock), whereas my combo was about $320. Sure, i5 is much faster, but for this application, the g530 would have sufficed. Perhaps new motherboards natively supporting Ivy will have some non-backward features as well.

I'll keep this review updated if encountering anything negative with the experience. Am surprised to see so few reviews on what seems to be the value leader.

As my title infers, I've been building systems for friends, relatives, business associates, my businesses and personal use for years. Can't think of a motherboard brand I haven't encountered. Regardless of the brand and like almost any product, I've encountered good and DOA boards from all the major brands.

This was my first ASRock. I was a bit nervous since they're not in any major retail stores. Took a chance after reading a few reviews by industry insiders.
I am VERY impressed with a number of features:

1. All the SATA connections face UP instead of the frustrating sideways on most other 1155 boards.
2. More space around the CPU socket so my Hyper212 isn't pushing against my RAM chips.
3. UEFI BIOS is easier to navigate.
4. My i5-2500K runs cooler. On my prior P67A-GD55 MSI board OC'd at 4.6Ghz, always ran in the 50 to 55C range. Using exact same case fans Hyper212 and Arctic 5 paste, I used the Auto Overclock setting CPU never gets above 50C.
5. Clean Audio. No matter what drivers or settings I used on my prior MSI board, sound would often stutter or delay. Using exact same Nvidia drivers, ASRock sound is flawless.
6. Best of all is the cost. Can't remember the last time I bought a board with the current bells & whistles for only $100.

This was a really nice little motherboard and for the price you can not go wrong, but if you are looking to do some heavy over clocking you are going to want something a little better. The z68 chip set is awesome and the board looks cool in your case. I used it for about two months and sold it for something better (Asrock Extreme 4 Gen 3) so I could push by over clock further.
