Just looking for peoples input before I make a purchase
I remember that review. Memory speed after 1600 isn't even worth the extra coin. I always evaluate boards on what is best for my wallet and overall performance. I don't OC heavily, but enough to make a noticeable difference in performance. In this case, paired with an i7 3820, if it can run 32GB of ram @ 1866+ and cpu around 4.4 - 4.5 GHz stable, then it gets the job done. I'm sure that all of those boards do that fairly easy, so it comes down to features and looks. The ASRock Extreme6 has enough of everything to provide a positive experience.
