I took my time looking at forums and product reviews to select this MB. I am not a gamer but wanted a high end motherboard that had the latest features and would cary me over for a few years. This MB is part of a 100% new build, everything including power supply, case, CPU and memory. I have built my desk model computers forever and the last one an Asus P5E3 Delux was giving me a random BSOD and when I tried to upgrade the memory and add Win 7 64 bit it choked. Time for a new computer. This is it and what a great choice. Everything went together slick including an Antec Kuhler water cooler for the Intel I5 2500K CPU. Mated this with 16GB of Skill 1600 Ripjaws memory and powered up the system. Loaded Win 7 64bit onto the Kingston 120GB SSD and I was off. Added the drivers only from the MB CD, no extra junk for me. I have not had a chance to monkey around with overclocking this rig yet, but I will. The only problem with the build was the video card I purchased flaked out on me the first week. No big deal as the MB has HDMI and digital video out and runs my two monitors great. I will look around for another video card in the near future, no hurry. I have used Asus MB's for a very long time. I was a littel worried about changing over to ASRock but not any more. What a great MB this is, solid and smooth. I load Win 7 in less than 30 sconds from start up with the solid state drive I load programs as fast as if they were open already. My advice: Buy this MotherBoard, I did and I am smiling.

Objective ... Performance and Efficiency: I have built computers with mobos mfted by Abit, ASUS, ASRock, Gigabyte, and Soyo. All good, but I have leaned to ASRock and ASUS (I loved my ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe (beautiful board) which will now go to another computer builder in the family). My most satisfying installation to date is this Z68 Extreme4/Generation3 (X4G3) mobo by ASRock. It scored well in layout, electrical goodies ... gold-coated capacitors, future proofing (PCIe 3.0, HDMI, etc.), and performance. Did I say attractive ... beautifully manufactured and sturdy. Layout is quite similar to the ASRock P67X4G3; which I built in another computer in 2011 (that installation had a lot to do with buying this Z68X4G3). This installation was straight forward with no issues; it had the latest bios, CD disc had the latest drivers (checked against ASRock's online downloads), and it fired up on the first try. This is my fourth ASRock MOBO and all I can say is they get better every time. This is also my fastest computer to-date ... Windows 7 - Home Premium 64-bit, two solid state drives (Kingston HyperX SATA III 120 GB and a OCZ Vertex SARA III 90 GB), and a single Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB data drive. The lowest score on Windows performance is 7.5 listed for calculations per second (Intel i5-2500K ... no slouch). The remaining scores are 7.8 (memory: G Skill Sniper 8 GB dual channel 1600/DDR3 set to XMP), 7.8 (desktop graphics: XFX 6870 HD Radeon/dual fans), 7.8 (gaming graphics ... board has slots for three video cards), and 7.9 (primary SSD drive: Kingston HyperX ... the 90 GB SATA III OCZ SSD would have scored the same). All I can say about SSD drives is don't buy one unless you're ready to get spoiled forever ... incredibly fast, fast, and fast!Read more ›

Pros:
- Good Price Point for Z68 boards
- 2xPCI-E 3.0 slots
- Z68 supports Lucid Virtu Universal MVP
- Future Proof-ability (Nothing is truly, but this board has some staying power.)
- UEFI Graphical BIOS
- Great bundle with features like the 2xSwitchable Front or Rear panel USB 3.0 ports; the 2.5" SSD mount; and the 3.5mm Audio Cable
- High quality gold, Japanese capacitors
- Dr. Debug LED (It actually helped me)

Cons:
- Only 2 Year Warranty--some competitors offer 3 Years
- No Lucid Virtu MVP License included--even though Lucid Virtu MVP was designed with Z68 chipsets it is being released with Z77 boards
- UEFI could easily be better
- Did not ship with latest BIOS version (Not really a big deal, but this was on back order for three months before I got it. I thought it would include the latest BIOS version since it was released earlier and since Amazon was receiving a new supply.)
- Not many extra screws (Not a very big deal and the case I bought contained quite a few extras.)

Review:
Features, construction, performance and last but, not least the price are the most important factors to consider. The ASRock MB-Z68X4G3 was the best balance of all those factors that I could find and I did spend about a month researching motherboards before I decided on this one. I purchased this board on January 27th, 2012 for $149.99 and it has been running flawlessly since then.

At the time I purchased this motherboard it was the best bang for my buck (at $149.99 it was a STEAL). As far as the Z68 boards go, it probably still is the best value even at $179 and it was awarded just that by TweakTown.

I was getting a code "55" and it was acting as if it wasn't recognizing my memory. (DDR3-1600).

It turns out it was that I had an Ivy Bridge (3.3 Quad) Intel CPU Processor, and not a Sandy Bridge.

After a small hint on new egg, I called their tech support number (from there website). I didn't get a phone system! I got a person.

Within 13 minutes, they had my address and mailed me (USPS) a new BIOS chip that would support Ivy Bridge.

(Your other option is to borrow a Sandy Bridge CPU, install it, update the existing BIOS and then reinstall your Ivy Bridge).

After that, everything was fine.

I'm running 2 SSD's in RAID1 setup (hardware raid from the motherboard).

Its running fast, and I have mirroring backup.

So a small ding for the frustration I had with my chip. It would have been nice if there was a "Supports Only Sandy Bridge" sticker somewhere in the original box.

But nobody's perfect I guess.
