Conclusion

This board has so many great features it’s hard to fault. I’m not going to make up anything negative or pretend there is something to fault. The only real issue which isn’t limited to this board is using the m.2 slot and u.2 SATA Express slots; if one is in use the other gets disabled. This is a technology road block, and will improve over time. Also there are minor bugs that will be worked out with bios updates. I would have liked to see RGB lighting or LED lighting on the board, especially lighting up either the armor or the heatsink art.

I absolutely love this motherboard, and got some decent overclocking results. My favorite part was the easy to use UEFI bios. Everything was easy to configure and had no input lag. The red/black cohesive color scheme will work with most manufacturers as this color is so popular right now. I definitely recommend this motherboard for enthusiasts and gamers. The price is definitely worth your investment. You can buy the ASRock Gaming K6+ for $195.00 on the ASRock Newegg store.
