Yeah, thats what I am almost certainly going to get. They are just not available. I am toying with the idea of just getting the ASUS P8P67 Pro for $200 just because I could order one of those today from Tiger Direct.

I was told that NCIXUS had the Extreme4 in stock and that they will almost definitely price-match with SuperBiiz and that I should buy it from them. However, I can't find much about NCIXUS. Are they a reputable company? I really like their real-time stock check. I just had never heard of SuperBiiz or NCIXUS before trying to find this motherboard, so I don't know anything about them. Which is the most reputable?

Assuming they will price match, NCIXUS will still be $4 more expensive because their shipping costs more. That said, I really want to stay away from SuperBiiz if I can because it is just crazy that they apparently sold out before Wednesday, but they still had it listed as in stock when I ordered it on Thursday and as of writing this post it STILL shows as in stock.

I mainly just have a few questions about it. First, is NCIXUS a good place to buy parts from? What kind of return policy do they have on defective items?

Next, if you add shipping into the cost formula, on Tiger Direct you can get the ASUS P8P67 Pro (micro version) for $10 less than the Extreme4 or you can get the full ATX version for only about $20 more than the Extreme4.

If someone could answer this question I would really appreciate it...IF all three of these were the same price, how would you rank them? In other words, disregarding price, which one is best, which is second best, and which is the worst?

I shop at NCIX, but only cause I'm in Canada and they also have local stores for me. Beware that NCIXUS may charge you a nice and big amount for shipping

Yeah, $21. Still, if they will price-match with the SuperBiiz price it will be about the same. I just don't really want to wait a month for Newegg to get them.

Double good news for me! SuperBiiz contacted me today to say that the Extreme4 is back in stock and will ship either today or tomorrow. Also, today I received my case, processor, RAM, hard drive, and DVD drive. I will order my 212+ and 5770 tomorrow from Amazon (since I have Prime) and pay the $4 extra for next day delivery.

So, hopefully by the weekend I will be able to put it all together!

OK, so, weird problem. When it boots there is a single beep (so it passed POST) and I load right into Windows 7 no problem. BUT, I can't seem to get into BIOS. It never says "hit DEL for BIOS" or anything like that but If I hit DEL it takes me to a page that says AB in the bottom right hand corner and has the mouse in the center. I can move the mouse but there is nothing to click. Any ideas?

Here is my build:

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 550W
Motherboard: ASRock P67 Extreme4 B3
Processor: Intel i5 2500k
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212+
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB
Disk drive: ASUS Black 24X SATA DVD burner
GPU: SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770
