I have had no issues with any DOA boards and have used this board in most of my LGA 2011 custom builds these last few months. It's my favorite sub $300 board as far as features vs price (don't go with the Extreme4 version which is pretty barebones in terms of features). Don't treat this as an economy/budget build component either. It still features the same high quality Japanese gold capacitors plus I love the black/graphite pcboard which is a signature of ASRock motherboards. ASRock is a subdivision of ASUS and was meant to compete with such OEM 3rd party component manufacturers like Foxconn but their quality and performance for their price have made them a big favorite for techies that appreciate best bang for buck components. When my clients don't demand specialty boards like the Asus Sabertooth or EVGA Classified SR series then I go with ASRock for the bulk of all my custom Ivy 1155 and 2011 LGA builds. GSkill RAM works great with ASRock boards.

EDIT: Updates are at the bottom of the review!

Hey All, So I have just finished up building a new desktop PC and this is the second motherboard I went with and I have to say while I am overall happy (note the 4 stars) I am a bit disappointed as well.

I want to start out with what to be aware of:

1) This board is not capable of running TRI-SLI because of component clearance issues with the last PCIe slot. When you plug in USB 2.0 connectors, HD Audio or even just the front panel connections, you will not be able to seat a third card on to the motherboard as the bottom of a double wide graphics card will rest on top of them and not settle into its PCIe slot. This was the part that was truly disappointing to me.

2) This board is not what I would call an easy install. I have a Corsair M90 keyboard that the BIOS recognizes just fine in the USB 3.0 ports, however the Windows 7 Installation disk do Not. This makes installing the OS impossible. Luckily I also have access to other keyboards (and my brother was asleep so he did not notice his missing for an hour or so).

3) RAID is only supported by 2 of the SATA3 connectors. This was not a huge deal to me but it is worth noting. Also, trying to install Windows 7 on a RAID volume will also require you to have a USB drive w/ the drivers on them so it can see the hard drives.. Any of the hard drives really. This is also not a huge deal but something to be aware of.

And now the good things:

1) 9 SATA connections. 5xSATA3 and 4xSATA2 provide access to plenty of storage options as well as a large amount of storage space. While only 2 of the SATA3 drives can be put into a RAID configuration this did not stop me from pushing forward with this board.

Bought from newegg (02/2012)

It's now used as a server with a E5-Xeon. Surprisingly
smooth upgrading the bios. Had to set something in
the bios so it would boot from the SATA 3 port. Not
a big deal.

Saved me several hundred being able to re purpose
this board with a E5 verse buying a server board. 3
years as a workstation and now an unknown number
of years as a server board.

Can't beat it. Granted I probably wouldn't buy this board
now since technology has improved but earlier this year it
was spot on for what I needed.
