Pleasantly surprising little board this one!

A little confused, though. On the last page you mention it came 2nd in the media benchmarks but it's got the highest overall score, stock and OC'd...

I'd love to see this board under full cover waterblocks in a mini case (though it would be interesting to see if slim-line rads could handle it overclocked).

Good spot, amended!

Not keen on the fact that fans seem to be getting more popular on motherboards once again...

Popular -> necessary?

Blame Intel, not the vendor :D

I was actually coming here just to say this. I do NOT want to go back to motherboards with those damn things.

ASRock are making some really good boards now.

I'd rather have to deal with some noise than have my hardware overheat and malfunction tbh.

ASRock actually managed to make a brown PCB look good, never seen that look pulled off so well before ;)

So now I am just waiting for the Rampage IV Gene...nom nom nom

Great surprise and finally the review, was asking when it's due to be released since it has appeared in the Asus' reviews. Someone who has the cash to buy a LGA2011 system will probably be thinking of water cooling the hell out of it.

I think it should also receive a recommended award, Asrock deserves it this time. Rest to see if the Rampage IV Gene will match or surpass this one but at a competitive price which I don't believe, so Asrock will have the upper hand on LGA 2011 m-atx market share

Interesting, Does anyone know how is ASRock customer service? If it's anything like GIGABYTE than no thank you. I thought ASUS was bad till I met GIGA.

I agree with Farfallho's idea of the recommended award thing. No clue about ASRock's customer service though.

would using a downdraft based cpu cooler such as the noctua c14 improve overclocking potential by cooling the vrm's a bit with the large amount of air it would move?
