Very In-Expensive upgrade. It performs well no issues installing it. Booted right up. Configured the BIOS and installed Windows 10 pro. I would recommend this board for a basic upgrade or replacement motherboard for a Socket 1150 build with Z97 chipset. It paired well with a Intel i5-4570 with 16gb of DDR 3. The wife is happy and that's priceless. There is only 1 Full Size PCI-E 3.0 slot so no SLI or Crossfire. I went ahead and purchased the 2 year warranty just in case. This will be my 2nd ASRock motherboard ever purchased. I usually buy ASUS, Gigabyte or MSI. For the price for Z97 and light gaming my wife does this was perfect.
It's a good motherboard for it's price but feel in some ways it's lacking a few small things for the price as well. First of the built in sound is just not worth it and I highly recommend a sound card. What it lacks for sound though it makes up for with on board fan connectors. I currently have all 4 of my fans being controlled by the motherboard and the settings make it easy to control them. I personally wont be overclocking with this board but from what I see I would only recommend a lighter overclock rather than pushing everything to it's limit. The board is entry level at best and would fry rather quickly with a heavy overclock.
Good for the price, but I would strongly advise clearing the CMOS if you get this board. I also ended up flashing it to 2.0 Bios. I had a lot of difficulty getting my two DVi-D monitors to run on this board. Once I flashed the Bios and cleared the CMOS things started to work for me.
