XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsink Design

The extra large aluminum alloy heatsinks take away heat dramatically. As the MOSFETs and chipsets areas are well covered by these heatsinks to protect them from overheating, CPU and chipsets can perform with lower temperature, and your motherboard and system will be more stable and reliable.


ASRock ASRock

Premium Alloy Choke

The new generation alloy chokes effectively increase up to 90% saturation current and feature a highly magnetic and heat resistant design, making the motherboard more efficient, stable and reliable.

ASRock

Dual-Stack MOSFET for CPU Power

Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM) is another innovative MOSFETs design by ASRock. The silicon die area is increased by stacking two dies into one MOSFET. The larger the die area, the lower Rds(on). Compared to traditional discrete MOSFET, DSM with larger die area provides extreme lower Rds(on) 1.2mΩ, so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.

ASRock

ASRock

NexFET MOSFET for Memory Power

The next generation NexFET MOSFETs control the power supply to DRAM slots more efficiently. They provide lower RDS(on) 2.9mΩ, delivering higher efficiency and lower temperature.

ASRock

ASRock

NexFET MOSFETs in memory areas use a special design for protecting them from electrostatic discharge and offer up to 7.5 times the ESD protection levels compared to traditional MOSFETs.
*Human Body Mode.


ASRock

12K Platinum Caps

Supreme 12K platinum capacitors with lifespans of at least 12,000 hours. Compared to other counterparts on high-end motherboards that merely have lifespans of around 10,000 hours, these platinum capacitors have 20% longer lifespans and provide more stability and reliability.

*Tested under industry standard 105 degree Celsius ambient temperature.

Sapphire Black PCB

ASRock does not overlook any details, even those tiny ones. With pure black PCB appearance, the new Sapphire Black PCB represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch.

Ultra M.2 (PCIe Gen3 x4)
The World's Fastest M.2 Socket - PCIe Gen3 x4

The onboard M.2 socket is a new interface for connecting Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) SSDs or other devices. ASRock is the first in the world to implement PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 socket on motherboards. The ultimate Ultra M.2 interface pushes the speed up to 32Gbps which is 6X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5Gbps.

1 out of 5 eggsPlagued with issues

Pros: None.

Cons: Cons: Had issues with two of these boards personally where they came dead on arrival. A couple came dead on arrival at my work as well. Stay away from this board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.
• Unplug the ATX power, remove all components from mainboard.
• Remove the mainboard from chassis, place it on mainboard’s box.
• Clear the CMOS.
• Check the mainboard’s CPU contact pins are normal (should be pointing same way and pattern).
• Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan if socket pins are normal.
• Test with single memory module.
• Test with onboard video.
• Connect the monitor.
• Plug the 24 + 8 or 4 pins ATX power.
• Turn on the power (using onboard power button) to check if its post.

5 out of 5 eggsperfect for my needs - M.2 Ultra and Thunderbolt rock

Pros: Once again ASRock hits the nail on the head with a great board. It was an easy setup and the feature set is perfect for the upgrade to my existing system. I needed thunderbolt and lots of hard drive connections and also enough slots for existing pci express cards and this one has it all. The M.2 ultra slot is the icing on the cake.

I am using the ASRock thunderbold aic card with UA Apollo Quad silverface running on thunderbolt Win7 x64 and it works great. My last board had one pciex x1 slot covered up by the 2 space video card but this one has a better layout with the M.2 Ultra slot in that spot. I installed a Samsung Pro 950 in the M.2 ultra slot and look out! the speed is about 4x faster than my 2.5 Samsung Pro 840.

Cons: I really dislike side mount SATA ports and unfortunately all of my ASRock boards have them. My cases have plenty of room inside but that design really makes it very difficult to plug and unplug cables once your board and drives are installed. Bring back the top mount SATA ports please! Otherwise I can't think of any other complaint I have with ASRock boards they are the best.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you get the correct type M.2 drive if you go that route - the M.2 ultra slot is M.2 pci express Gen3 x4 whereas the second M.2 slot is M.2 Sata3. For the 950 Pro you must download and install Samsung NvMe driver for it to be recognized in windows. Due to current chipset limitations one can't squeeze the full theoretical speed out of that gizmo but it's still about the fastest thing out there right now. Also be aware that the M.2 channel shares pci bus bandwidth with pciex slots so either the graphics speed or hard drive speed is lowered in different combinations. This will affect SLI and Crossfire setups but I don't do any of that. Read the manual and make sure of specs before you buy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board would buy a ASRock again in a heart beat

Pros: looks good, on board audio is really good. everything work right away, posted first time no problems what so ever during install.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: this was my first build from scratch, i had done vid cards and ram but thats it. So i was very happy that the instructions where done well and didnt just assume i knew what i was doing. Everything has worked flawlessly. I've had the board for quite a while now. Just installed a water cooler from zalmann and hit the Auto OC thing. It set it at 4.3Ghz on a 4690K I5 and it hasn't crashed once. So im super happy with this thing.

5 out of 5 eggs3rd ASRock Z97 Extreme6 Build. 3rd terrific building experience.

Pros: Amazing board - I've had two others running flawlessly since this board came out. I just replaced a defective asus mb with this one, easy as pie, solid as steel.

Cons: None, I've built with this board 3 times now.

Make sure your SSD is on the fast sata port, and your graphics card is on the x16 slot.

5 out of 5 eggsMB Upgrade ....smooth with windows 10 as OS

Pros: This is my 2nd asrock build in 30 days .I was so pleased with the first build I went ahead and used them again. They really have it together . Directions and software both very user friendly . Didn't have a single issue with anything. Their ALC1150 sound is exceptional.

Cons: the only thing that made me a lil worried was the packaging on this one they use zip ties thru the motherboard mounting holes to hold the board to the padded protection used for shipping .had to find some very lil scissors to snip them .. But they did their job everything arrived fine that's whats important.

Other Thoughts: I had read all the reviews some good some bad ..try to read between the lines of written reviews and could the problems people are having be something that wasn't the products fault. Take your time ,read the directions even if you've done this type of upgrade before you may learn something new.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard with Slight Issues

Pros: Fantastically beautiful motherboard asthetically, nice blue sparkle on heat sinks looks nice.

M.2 compatibility obvious comes in very handy

Classic debug monitor so codes are simple to find

Full metal construction on socket

UEFI bios was comfortable for me coming from Asus's UEFI

Again, OC'ing was easy with my 4790k and was able to easily adjust DRAM as well.

Cons: My most serious problem was with SATA ports. Moving from an old HDD to a new motherboard caused me to have problems discovering what SATA data ports were Asmedia and which were Intel. In truth, you'll need to use the Intel ports (2 in center row) which aren't clearly labeled. I considered marking these ports after experiencing this problem but I decided against it after solving the problem.

Besides that, I also dislike the positioning of the SATA data ports on this mobo just because of ease of use.

Other Thoughts: I expected a little less trouble out of this board in the end, but all in all after about a month of use I have abolsutely no regrets about purchasing this rather than another product.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a Beast!

Pros: Instructions - Packaging - all 1st class - this my first Asrock MB I installed my I5 cpu - 32gb patriot ram and my 15 drives for an Unraid setup, went into the bios and configured what i needed for Unraid and then booted into the Unraid OS .... Also noticed a USB port right on the MB down by the front panel connections this is nice per Unraid uses a USB flash drive for the OS..... Very Happy!

Cons: Not really a Con - A little confusing on the Boot Order - I didn't see an option for USB, but if there is a bootable USB flash drive anywhere on the USB bus it will boot of it.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommend this for a gamer setup or in my case a Unraid server - 10 Sata ports right on the MB

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: * Worked on first boot.
* Great software to monitor and adjust system on the fly.
* Love the HDD saver. I'm using one SSD for OS and programs I use a lot (3d modelling/games) and one HDD for all my files (3d program files, etc..). I have two HDD's plugged into the saver that I have rarely used stuff on (and backing up my files occasionally).
It takes about 5-10 seconds to turn on my extra HDD's with ATuning software so I can back up files. Then turn them off and keep my system quiet and using less power. AWESOME! (might be the coolest thing ever!)
*Features I may never use like Dual Bios switch...

Cons: * it wasn't free.
* had to wait 3-4 days for it to arrive?

Other Thoughts: It was on sale and had a rebate. I have always gotten the rebates from New Egg that I sent in, got email confirm but still within the 'waiting period' (4-6 weeks) and I assume I will get it.

What more to say, it came, it installed easy, it works great.

Intel i7-4790k
Corsair H-50 Liquid Cooler
Corsair Vengance 1600 DDR3 (2x8gb), (and older Corsair Vengance 2x4GB)
EVGA GTX 970 4 GB DDR5
EVGA Super Nova 750W
Mushkin Enhanced Reactor 512 SSD, (and older WD Raptor HDD)

2 out of 5 eggsWorks for the most part

Pros: - Good amount of ports
-Good amount of room to fit everything (I have 2 graphics cards and could likely fit a 3rd)
-Bios are fairly good

Cons: -Bottom 2 usb ports have never worked.
-Trying to fix the issue tends to result in a blue screen of death

Other Thoughts: -Would be a great board if not for bottom usb ports. Only having 4 total and 2 not working is a major issue. Don't buy unless you don't need many usb ports.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Bennett,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please test particular USB ports in UEFI/BIOS with keyboard and mouse for functioning.
Download and install the USB 3.0 driver at link below if they are working in BIOS.
