ASRock is serious about breaking the 1 million motherboards-shipped mark for this year. The company is going into the emerging Intel Z87 chipset-based socket LGA1150 motherboard market with an extremely strong lineup covering a wide range of price-points. The company is preparing as many as three OC series models, two Fatal1ty series ones, and six Extreme series models. A defining feature of ASRock's lineup is the introduction of onboard 802.11 ac WLAN controllers on select models. The "/ac" brand extension denotes this feature.

That Extreme9/ac is an epic looking board. If Haswell turns out to be good, and clock well, I will get that board for a 4770k I think.

ASRock is becoming what ASUS used to be. The student surpasses the master?

And what's so inherently wrong with yellow? The mods section is full of good yellow-themed rigs...

I like yellow, i think its a nice change from red,

and if color is that big a deal they still offer a red/black board and lets be real if color is that important to you i don't think price makes a difference

AsRock looks really good lately. I mean REALLY good. I might seriously consider them as an option on next upgrade. In the past they were budget only, but now they make really nice looking boards packed with features. It's always nice to have decent options.

When it comes to memory competability and overclocking? still far far behind.

I own 8 ASRock boards from 2007 to early 2013 with zero problems. Every manufacturer has the possibility of a board or component failing rather quickly. Would be nice to see the system specs of the rig your board failed in.

Never been a fan of ASUS/ASRock mobos due to bios issues in the past. But these boards do look feature-packed for better or worse.

I don't know how asus's BIOS is crappy, maybe you know something about it that i don't :).
BIOS bugs happen all the time and so does fixes. ASRock is clearly not the best in supporting their products via BIOS updates, take this board for example
http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=Download&os=BIOS&Model=Fatal1ty P67 Professional
After owning both brands as my current boards, I agree.

I'm rather excited for these, especially with the new onboard audio solution. I'm not exactly an audiophile, but I did notice the difference between the Realtek ALC 892 and 898, so hopefully the ALC 1150 offers even more improvements.

That's what caught my eye as well, along with the nifty CPU load/temp readout.

I want a OCF my z77 OCF oc the mem a lot better then MVG :)
Was just going to say, for memory overclocking, my OCF did better than any Asus board I used (MVG only, LOL!) on the same sticks. Perhaps it was the sticks, but... that was my experience as well. Perhaps though, we are in a different class of overclocking. I dont know how 'mere mortal' overclocking goes on any board really, but do know that I crapped out around 2700ish on the MVG I had versus the OCF I took the same sticks over 2800...I cant imagine that to be any different down around the 1600-2133 area...

ASRock is clearly not the best in supporting their products via BIOS updates, take this board for example
http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=Download&os=BIOS&Model=Fatal1ty P67 Professional
ANd on the flip side... a modern board...: http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77 OC Formula/?cat=Download&os=BIOS

or a more mainstream board (Ex6): http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77 Extreme6/?cat=Download&os=BIOS

I don't know how asus's BIOS is crappy, maybe you know something about it that i don't :).
BIOS bugs happen all the time and so does fixes. ASRock is clearly not the best in supporting their products via BIOS updates, take this board for example

To be fair, there are two Beta BIOSes available for that board, the latest one is from late January 2013. My oldest LGA 1155 board (2011 Z68 Extreme4 Gen3) is pretty much in the same boat though it's not like it really needs BIOS updates anyway as it is stable.
