The X99M 3.1 Fatality Killer does look like a solid board though but see why people like the EVGA Micro 2

I've never used Asrock or EVGA boards before, I've been a bit of an Asus fan apart from an ongoing love affair with my old Dfi Lanparty sk939 board.

For me it was the colour scheme that swung it, that Asrock board was just toooooo red!

Haha for me it's the red which is making me highly consider it might work well with my red/gold theme

What's their support like?
I spoke to EVGA today asking if they could tell me what bios my board shipped with, they said no but if I buy Broadwell cpu and board has wrong bios to support it they will Rma the bord and flash to latest bios for me at the cost of postage to rma centre and they pay postage to return to me.

Not sure never used Asrock boards before. In that regard never used EVGA either always had Asus/Gigabyte and MSI boards. Gigabyte support was pretty bad in my experience.

Couldn't you just flash the newest bios yourself ?

Just get a Bios chip, really easy to install on the evga , plug and play so to speak, cost about £10

If it comes with the haswell-E bios, you would need to put a haswell chip in then flash the newest bios just to run a broadwell chip, its not like asus with their bios flash-back, although Msi have started to do this now with some of their boards

As i said its really easy to change the bios chip for EVGA boards, so its not a problem, some you have to use a chip extractor tool, but evga have like a clam socket that you just open and just plug the new one in, bios chips are tiny though.
