This board has features some higher end boards don't even have, like a debug LED and power/ reset buttons on the board for test bench scenarios and such. It's the only board in the $150-170 price range with 3 PCIE x16 slots and supports both Crossfire and SLI with a decent phase count other than the ASUS M-Pro which lacks 2 PCI slots, 1 PCIE x1 slot, 2 SATA III slots, USB 3 Header, and a few other small things. The Extreme 4 just has amazing features at a great price.

oh nice, but if i don't use all of them, should I just go for a cheaper p67 board? The overclocking capability is still the same for all p67 boards correct?

Not really; MSI especially has a lower phase count which will limit your overclocking ability because you will not be able to reach higher clocks and stay stable. There was an entire post about power phases and VRM that I can't find right now that explains really well why higher phases and VRM is important.

Here it is:

very good write up on phases and VRM

I posted the link in the other post, but power phases is a good thing to look at for all motherboards; it gives the processor a steady amount of voltage which allows for more stable OC because it helps to eliminate spikes. But as for the ASRock Extreme 4, a member of the forums hit 5GHz with an i5 2500k with a lot less voltage than some of the other boards require.

Great design/layout/aesthetics and a featureset that meets or exceeds that of the P8P67 Pro for ~$150-155 (P8P67 Pro goes for $180+) Plus, ASRock is just cool!

Bought the Extreme6 instead. Got $5 off from one of the codes above. I also have an MSI G65 so I will compare the 2 and let you guys know how important the phase thingy is. Fortunatey I have a nice CPU, good batch in otherwords. I am looking for 5G stable at a reasonable vcore.

I'd use LEPRECHAUN5, it worked for me. RAINBOW15 didn't.

lmao I ended up getting the Extreme6 as well...it was the only way to get my order on Newegg over $500 so I could get 12 month no interest through my Newegg Preferred Account. My order shipped this morning and I noticed a coupon from Newegg in my mail for 15% off any RAM. Contacted support and they credited me $15 on the Ripjaws X RAM I purchased with that order.
