The world’s first Windows 8 certified 8-series motherboard!

ASRock's Z87 Extreme4 is the world's first Intel 8 Series motherboard to pass Windows 8 hardware certification. It is based on the Intel Z87 chipset, and integrates native USB 3.0 connectivity on an Intel platform. Exclusive XFast 555 technology, including XFast RAM/XFast LAN/XFast USB, works behind the scenes to improve overall system efficiency and throughput.



 

  • newegg XFast 555 Technology Exclusive ASRock XFast 555 technology — including XFast RAM, XFast LAN and XFast USB technology — optimizes your user experience with fast response and low latency. To boost performance, XFast RAM creates a virtual disk from the system memory. For Photoshop, It can perform five times faster than before. ASRock XFast LAN is a smart productivity tool that helps you manage your Internet application priorities, simplify your digital life, and accomplish more. XFast USB technology boosts up the USB transfer to a new level, enabling more data to be transferred in less time.
  • newegg Purity Sound Purity Sound is a combination of audio solutions and technologies that will satisfy even the pickiest audiophile. It includes 7.1 CH HD audio with Realtek ALC1150 audio codec, 115dB SNR DAC with Differential Amplifier, TI 5532 Premium Headset Amplifier (which supports up to 600 ohm headphones), a capless Direct Drive technology, EMI shielding cover, PCB isolate shielding, and support for DTS Connect. Unlike traditional onboard audio solutions that use single-sided output and capacitors, Purity Sound uses a differential codec for differential output. The signals provide Purity Sound by going through a differential amplifier TI NE5532 with Direct Drive technology.
  • newegg HDMI-In Tired of constantly switching devices to connect to your monitor? From now on just connect the monitor to your motherboard, and connect your secondary device to the motherboard's HDMI-In port. Users can conveniently toggle between the computer's screen and the secondary device's screen with a hotkey, or even use the secondary device without powering on the computer.
  • newegg Waterproof by Conformal Coating Conductive liquids, such as water, pretty much destroy all kinds of electronics on contact. That's why ASRock has implemented a special layer of Conformal Coating on their motherboards; this makes the motherboards invulnerable to conductive liquids, corrosion and dust. Users won't have to worry about spilling liquid nitrogen, liquid helium or even clam chowder over their motherboards while overclocking.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, solid board.

Pros: Great UEFI allows driver installation without optical drive.
PCI slot for legacy devices.
Recognized XMP profiles immediately.
Stable under conservative overclock.

Cons: As others have said, some of the headers are in awkward positions. They're all accessible and I had no problems getting everything connected, so not worth docking an egg, but something to note.

Other Thoughts: Didn't have any issues with the on-board audio hardware.

Build:

16gb G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR3 1600
Crucial M500 120gb SSD
MAudio Delta44 audio interface (reason I needed a PCI slot!)

5 out of 5 eggsNice MOBO

Pros: Didn't have any issues installing my water cooling onto this board. Everything started right up and windows 8.1 worked just as expected. If you need a new board that can handle gen 4, this is nicely price and well worth it!

Cons: Nothing to report.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great board. Easy setup

Cons: The Ethernet port wouldn't work. Drivers weren't there for it and some other drivers were missing. Real hassle because I had to run to the store to get a wireless USB adapter to download the drivers for it. Very disappointed when I'm trying to get all the updates for the OS.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsgreat board

Pros: great quality board
easy to setup
easy to use bios OC settings

Cons: the board was too thin to use with my h80i cpu cooler so i had to add a few rubber washers between the backplate and board

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard

Pros: Good build quality, great features, solid performance, affordable, overclocks well.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I would like it to be easier to overclock like asus, but I knew this going in, so I don't really consider it a con.

4 out of 5 eggsJust OK

Pros: Good build quality
Legacy PCI slots if you need to use an older sound card or other legacy device
BIOS functionality is more than sufficient for a midrange board in this price range
Lots of SATA slots
Board layout, apart from one thing (mentioned below) is good

Cons: Two quibbles:
1) I don't like where they put the front panel HD audio connector (middle of the board near the rear of the case). This means that in most cases, you won't be able to hide your front panel audio connector as it will have to stretch across the front of your board. That's sloppy design, and could have been easily avoided by putting the connector on the bottom of the board (instead of the middle) like most boards do.

2) One of the audio channels on the board has some static. I'm docking an egg for this, particularly since some professional reviewers had the same problem, but it wasn't a huge deal for me since I had a PCI sound card that I just used instead.

Other Thoughts: Decent enough board. Just RMA if you get buggy sound issues and don't have a sound card.

Used this board with a i5-4670 and 8GB 1866 memory without any problems.

2 out of 5 eggsDamaged

Pros: I recieved it with the rest of my order in a timely manner.

Cons: It is damaged and arrived damaged. I am uncertain if it will work with what i have or not. The prongs on it are damaged and the only way i will know if it works or not will be to put the thing together and test it.

Other Thoughts: I am going to put it together and test it. Please send me an email about this because it arrived the way it is. I rather hope that if it doesn't work you will replace it with a new one. I had another issue with my order that was finally resolved and i finally got the piece, and now i figure out that part of it is damaged? I'm extremely upset and i will try to use this item, but if i can't i really expect a replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

Pros: Sturdy design, nice quality feel. Realtek ALC1150 Purity Sound. Bios is easy to use and looks great. So far all systems are GO. BOSE sound system and G35 headset sound really good. I don't know if it's one thing or everything working as one together, I had a lot of time to research products, this build is everything I had hoped for sure. Games run so smooth now, I'm not going to bother with a GTX 780 but rather wait for the next gen GTX 800 series to go on sale so maybe 2 years until a GPU upgrade.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Azza Solano 1000
GTX 570 2.5GB
ASRock Z87 Extreme4
i5 4670k
EVGA 100-FS-C901-KR cooler
M500 240GB SSD
WD 1TB Black Series
2 x 4GB G.Skill Sniper 1866Mhz
Kingwin 1000W

ASRock made a nice board here, even the box says Tom's Hardware Smart Buy 2013.

1 out of 5 eggsPurity sound, more like toilet sound

Pros: It's a motherboard

Cons: I bought this because of the Purity Sound, turns out that the any sound is ruined by random pops and clicks every few seconds no matter what audio equipment you use. I even bought a separate soundcard and I still get the clicks and pops.

Other Thoughts: I'll never buy another asrock product

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the sound issue, please turn the power off, clear the CMOS.
Set the UEFI BIOS default.
Uninstall the Audio driver.
Download and install the Audio driver at link " http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z87%20Extreme4/?cat=Download ".
If you have any technical questions please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.
