    No I wouldn't. The Bios sucks for this board and is nothing compared to the other boards I listed as far as overclocking~

    ...:wtf:...The bios for the ASRock board was logical, simple and straight forward to use...It allows the same minuscule voltage increments while using whatever base clock, multiplier and ratios you want. Remember...ASRock is owned by ASUS...so this board's BIOS was probably designed by ASUS engineering...

    Just my opinion there Instant Thunder. The bios for the ASRock X58 is not the same as my ASUS X58 Rampage II Gene (not even close in how it is layed out). The big difficulty I have with the ASRock bios is that when I select an area and a seperate box comes up to make a choice using the down arrow; it is very difficult to see which one is highlighted.
    Again just my opinion....

    Completely agree the bios suxs for this Asrock board, I have changed mine out for a Gigabyte UD7 and going to sell the asrock board.l I've had way to many headaches with this board. The board still works great just to many hassels with OC and other small problems that should not be happening.
