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

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.

ASRock

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.



ASRock ASRock

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.

4 out of 5 eggsRuns great!

Pros: This is a really good motherboard so far. I did have to do an exchange/return. The first one had bent pins where the processor went.

Cons: none at this point.

Other Thoughts: The only con with this whole board at this point is the return board got lost or forgotten in the warehouse. Without going into gory details about the warehouse people. I have to say the customer service got the ball rolling and everything straightened out for me. Thanks!

5 out of 5 eggsI just Love the affordable ASRock Motherboards that are the closest thing to a $300 Asus Product for 1/3 the Price

Pros: Works best without using the install disk that loads bloatware. Asus motherboard will not function without a few of the system disk drivers but ASRock motherboards allow adjustment in the BIOS which is a cleaner way to tweak a system without adding registry entries.

Cons: High degree of skill needed to set-up and maintain ASRock motherboards

Other Thoughts: Love the $100 tag that I paid here 3 years ago for my Z87 Extreme that is still my main system and this Z97 Extreme was purchased to make the Network DAW that I am building. I know these 2 motherboards look different and have a so-called Z97 chipset, but it is just an error correction of the Z87 set and is not a new chip with new features that everyone thinks they are getting.

2 out of 5 eggsNot NEW!! Open BOX AGAIN

Pros: None yet

Cons: Purchased and paid for new item... Product was clearly opened already. Seal on Anti-static bag was missing resealed... manuals where not packaged and had slight fold marks in the cover indicating they were opened.....

Not sure about parts... contained 1 SATA cable while "contents" per manual says SATA were in some packages (option) but they would contain 4 SATA cables if included. Since I had 1 cable it would appear that 3 cables were missing from package.

haven't installed yet because need to check with Newegg on this policy.. I thought when I paid for new item it would be new - unopened. Same was true for Motherboard ordered as well for my build. So 2 out of 5 main components for the system were purchased NEW but shipped previously opened items

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsASRock Z97 Extreme6 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Replaced exisitng motherboard and CPU with this and pentium G3258. Used old ram ssd/harddrive from prior build with mythbuntu linux 14.04 and it booted and worked like charm. Added other hardrives and my mdadm did not find my raid. Upon inspection realized one of the hardrive in hotswap bay was loose. After fixing everything worked fine so far.

Cons: My IR received (usb 2.0) did not work. Manual says that I can change usb legac support. However tinkering with those setting made my KB/mouse broken. I simply changed to a different receiver and my remote works as expected. One time, intel network port flooded my home network and made everything hang over the net. This just happened once and after reboot everything has been fine. While installing, a couple of times the system will fail to reboot/suspend and simply hang. A reset required in those cases. Note that I did not install any new software. So, this could be due to old SW or could be a real issue with MB. Because of all these annoynaces only 4 stars. Only usb 3.,0 on the back.

Other Thoughts: I bought this mainly for the 10 SATA ports. So, far I am using 8 and all are working fine. Some the reviews here say that it does not boot with asmedia SATA enabled. Please do not connect CD drive to it. Linux will crash with CD/DVD/Bluray drive on asmedia ports (to the best of my knowledge) Connect it to intel SATA ports. Also, there is a kernel command line workaround, but I do not recall. Just google it. BTW, my orginal install that I reused as is not UEFI. You will need usb 2.0 for win7 install.

1 out of 5 eggsRandom freezing

Pros: Blue color theme goes with my Phantom 410 case lights; has Z97 chipset; many connection options.

Cons: Audio has input lag, so you have a pronounced delay between when audio starts and when you actually start to hear it - even happens with headphones. Random USB 3.0 issues causing device to stop and even the system to freeze (also reported in these reviews) - Windows 10 will not even recognize the headers, so I am forced to use their drivers, which is where the problems begin. Issue with putting load onto a device connected to either PCI-E 3.0 slot (see below for this fiasco).

Other Thoughts: For weeks, I have been trying to figure out why my system is randomly freezing when I try to run a current-gen game (e.g., Fallout 4, The Division, etc.). I'm running reference drivers and not doing ANY overclocking beyond what may be stock on the VGA card used. These freezes have no correlating event in Windows Event Viewer, and Dr. Debug (ASRock's error code generator) only shows "AA", which is conveniently undefined in their scant literature on the "feature".

I have replaced the video card with a completely different card from a different manufacturer AND replaced the power supply (FYI - more than enough power for my system at 550W - my load is only about 380 @ peak). Still, the freezes persist. I cannot even run 3DMark Fire Strike to completion without a lockup. Interestingly enough, when I default to the on-board graphics, I cannot get the freeze to occur, and believe me, I have tried.

Now, this could be that I got 2 bad Nvidia 970 cards from 2 different manufacturers OR I got 2 bad power supplies, but I sincerely doubt it. Given what I have read here about issue experienced by reviewers, I'm pointing at ASRock. At this point, I don't even want an exchange - I want my money back. I should have bought the ASUS card I wanted, but decided I could not wait for it to be restocked. Never again.

I have submitted a support request, so we'll see how quickly they respond to my request. If I've not heard anything by Tuesday, I'm moving on, and spreading the word on my experiences wherever I can. Pick another brand, because, from what I am seeing here, this manufacturer is utterly failing basic QC processes.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Chris,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please try below to check if its address the issue.
Turn the power off, clear the CMOS.
Load the BIOS setting default.
Install fresh Windows.
Download and install the drivers at link below (INF, Intel ME, LAN, VGA (if using onboard)).

5 out of 5 eggsEasy for a first time builder

Pros: I'll admit I bought it because it looks nice but I also saw that it had good reviews. This mobo has made my life super easy. I was able to perform an "internet flash" to update the bios before I even got the OS installed. That was handy. I was able to install the OS on a USB from the rear USB ports without the slightest problem (heck it prompted me). I set my XMP profile and my memory's working just fine. On top of it all the mobo is stiff enough to keep my big graphics card from sagging. I love all the USB 3.0 ports. All in all it was super easy, looks and performs great.

Cons: ATune seems kinda basic looking but it does work.

Other Thoughts: I also downloaded AppShop to update various mobo drivers (I didn't even use the enclosed disk) that was handy.
This mobo was like training wheels for this first time builder; I like that. I couldn't have been easier.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product - Pain to install

Pros: -Quiet
-Speed as advertised
-Works well

Cons: -Very hard to get dual channel RAM working - Steps to resolve I took when this occurred - Computer turned on, no video error code 55 on the MD.
1) Install 1 Stick of Ram 2) Boot to UEFI 3) Flash ROM to newest version 3) Turn off install 2nd stick. Reboot. 4) If problem still exists turn off, take out CMOS battery (Clears it) Re-seat CPU carefully. Put back in CMOS battery 5) Start again - This is what worked for me.

Pain to get working

Other Thoughts: -I would not recommend to new builder as a first motherboard. Someone with moderate skill would have no problem.
