Cheap board for OC Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

-Z170 chip allows for overclocking
-With an older bios, you can overclock locked CPUs
-One of the cheapest Z170 ATX board
-Sturdy; did not feel like the pcb would yield even when applying a lot of force during installation
-MIR actually came in.
-Supports SLI
Cons
-Power connector is perpendicular to the board, whereas it would be much better for cable management if it was parallel.
-I/O panel is a bit flimsy
Summary
MIR came in pretty late, without an email to indicate it was received, which is something they should do if the amount is large enough.

Pros

Price
Offers enough slots to build a decent computer
Summary
I made a build for my brother. Overall, very satisfied (>100$ with 35$ MIR, that I am still waiting for... depending on whether or not I get it, perhaps my view of this Mobo may change).

Pros

Price. SkyOC.
Cons
Newest BIOS breaks SkyOC. Stock BIOS. Looks.
Summary
Stock BIOS does not play nice with all DDR4 and the newest BIOS breaks non-K overclocking. Make sure to get the 1.40 BIOS update  if you plan on overclocking a non-K Skylake CPU. If you don't want to OC or have a K, I'd assume you're safe to go to 1.50.
Stock BIOS caused a lot of freezing and crashing, even without the BCLK overclock. After the update  to 1.40, I've had no issues at all and have an i5 6600 running comfortably at 4.1GHz.
Aesthetically speaking, this board is ugly, but for the cost, you really can't expect to much. It's also smaller than any other ATX I've had. My 212 and R9 390(3 inches of overhang) look ridiculously large on it.
If you can get it for <$150, it's a fine choice. If you're building cheap, you could get a lot out of this board and a 6500 with BIOS 1.40.

   SKY OC
Overclocking is no longer limited to K Series unlocked CPUs! Now through a simple BIOS upgrade, users can overclock any non-K CPU on ASRock Z170 motherboards with SKY OC.
Click here to download the lastest BIOS for SKY OC.
*Pictures for reference only
1. Intel® iGPU, CPU Turbo Ratio, AVX and C-State function will be disabled when running SKY OC, a discrete VGA card is required.
2. The overclocking results may vary between different CPUs and hardware configurations.
3. Due to future hardware/firmware update s or other reasons, the availability of SKY OC is subject to change without notice in advance.
4. There are certain risks involved with overclocking, such as damaging the CPU, memory module, power supply unit, or destabilizing the system. It should be done at your own expense. If you are unsure about the risks of overclocking, please seek professional advice.

 
Premium 50A Power Choke
Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock’s premium 50A power chokes effectively make the saturation current up to three times better, thus providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.

 
High Density Glass Fabric PCB
What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity or whatever you’d like to name it. And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit. Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
High Density Glass Fabric PCB
Traditonal Glass Fabric PCB
2 x PCIe 3.0 x16 Slots
PCIe Gen3 x16 slots that are fully compatible with standard graphics cards and other add-on cards.
UEFI EZ Mode
EZ mode is a dashboard which contains multiple readings of the system’s current status. You can check the most crucial information of your system, such as CPU speed, DRAM frequency, SATA information, fan speed, etc.
Supports DDR4 3466+ (OC)
Supports the latest DDR4 memory modules and most extreme memory performance!
Flexible PCIe Slots
A new flexible PCIe Gen3 x1 slot design that allows users to install add-on cards of all kinds of sizes.
* The bandwidth of your devices will be limited to PCIe Gen3 x1.

ELNA Audio Caps
Who says high quality audio is only available on high-end motherboards? ASRock applied ELNA audio capacitors on mainstream and entry-level motherboards! Compared with traditional solid caps, the leakage current of ELNA audio caps is merely 3uA. This is the key to reduce noise level significantly and satisfy even the pickiest audiophiles.
Solid Capacitor Design
ASRock applied solid capacitors on this motherboard. With these solid caps, this motherboard is allowed to perform more stably and ensure longer lifetime.
Intel® LAN
Intel® LAN provides the best throughput performance, lower CPU utilization, enhanced stability and is able to deliver ultimate network experience to users!
A-Tuning
A-Tuning is ASRock's multi purpose software suite with a new interface, more new features and improved utilities.
