Asrock is an excellent brand and this is an insane deal. 3x m2 slots... damn. $150 for their top shelf board won't happen again while slot 1151 is still viable.

The last time this deal was posted, it was going for $170: http://slickdeals.net/f/8891775-asrock-z170-oc-formula-atx-lga-1151-motherboard-176-ar-at-newegg?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1. This was in early July, and I just missed the deal. This time around, though, I'm not sure if I want to pick it up, since it has 4 SLI slots, and I know if I have the slots available, I'm probably going to want to use them, so I'll have to return the $30 600W PSU I purchased from Best Buy so I can upgrade to a power supply that can support four graphics cards in quad-SLI.

Looks like an awesome board... then I read the reviews. I can accept that one or two got bad shipments (open box, wrong parts), but reliability and stability seem to be an issue.

The specs are incredible. If ASRock didn't seem so inconsistent in their support, this would be a no-brainer, but I'll keep looking. My PC Build wasn't going to start in earnest until October.

I read those reviews too. My boards coming in today so I'll give an update later on the condition of board.

Then you might as well wait for AMD Zen

Tons of reviewers stated they received open box items, ones that won't boot/post, or had defective memory slots. I would say totally buy this MB, just not from Newegg.

Well, I can't wait until next year (which is the current outlook for Zen), not sure I want to bank my main system on an AMD processor, either, even if it does "LOOK" good on paper. I've seem AMD/ATI do this too many times, and I've for a few AMD chips sitting around here I've replaced in systems because they went wonky - never had an issue with intel.

That said, I have systems here of both AMD and Intel flavors, so maybe when Zen comes out I'll build a system and give it a shot. It needs to run cool and not "freak out" into overheat mode as so many AMD processors I've used in the past do.

My next build is going to be 64GB DDR4 (better than stock, not paying enthusiast pricing for top end), 2x512 M.2 SSD (shooting for 5+GB/s) RAID-0 boot drive, 2x1TB SSD RAID-0 Data drive and a GTX 1070 (which should be retail or less by October/November, but I can wait a little longer on that) - looking at an i7-6800k. I'm grabbing an Arctic Freezer 240mm liquid cooler when I see it on sale (though $76 at NCIX looks tempting). Already have a Thermaltake V71 case (it's a monster)

On paper, this MB looks great for that purpose. At least I know it's possible, so I'll keep my eye out for an ASUS or Gigabyte MB with similar specs.

Hey Folks, Interested in this deal. Went to Newegg and signed into my account. The Mobo is usually 252.99 but is on sale for 20.95% off, which puts it at 199.99. This is one cent less than the requirement to use the VCOGOLD16 promo code, which requires a price of 200.00. After the 30.00 mail in rebate, the price would be 169.99, not 154.99. Can someone explain how to get the advertised price in this post?

Add small filler to get you up over $200.
