With performance, quality and features at an affordable price point, the ASRock Z97 Extreme3 motherboard is a great foundation for you to build your dream PC. Based on Intel Z97 chipset, this micro ATX motherboard flawlessly supports the 4th, new 4th and 5th generation Intel processors in LGA 1150 packaging, and incorporates two PCIe x16 slots that are ready for AMD Quad CrossFireX and NVIDIA Quad SLI. The Digi Power design ensures precise, efficient power delivery to CPU, and ASRock Super Alloy components guarantees unbeatable durability and stability you can count on in the long haul. Beyond what you can expect from a motherboard at this price range, this model also packs Intel Gigabit LAN, Nichicon 12K Platinum capacitor design, High Density Glass Fabric PCB and 7.1-ch HD audio that elevate your experience.

General information

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.

General information

NexFET MOSFET for Memory Power

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

General information

Nichicon 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, ASRock applied Nichicon 12K Platinum Caps that offer 20% longer lifespans and provide more stability and reliability. (* Tested under industry standard 105 degree Celsius ambient temperature.)

General information

Sapphire Black PCB

Pure black PCB appearance. The new Sapphire Black PCB represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch.

General information

Nichicon Fine Gold Audio Caps

ASRock applied Nichicon Fine Gold Series audio capacitors that every audiophile has been longing for on a PC! Compared with traditional solid caps, the leakage current of Nichicon audio caps is merely 10uA. This is the key to reduce noise level significantly and satisfy even the pickiest audiophiles.

General information

Intel LAN

Intel LAN provides the best throughput performance, lower CPU utilization, enhanced stability and is able to deliver ultimate network experience to users!

General information

Digi Power

Unlike traditional motherboards that use analog power, this motherboard uses a next generation digital PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) design, which provides CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced.

General information

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.

General information

ASRock APP Shop

ASRock APP Shop is designed for your convenience. We provide various apps and support software for users to download. You can easily optimize your system and keep your motherboard up to date with ASRock APP Shop. ASRock APP Shop is the only all-in-one software package that delivers you the most practical PC apps and tools, in one integrated interface – from ASRock exclusive tools to the most update-to-date options of the latest technology.

General information

USB Key

In a world where time is money, why waste precious time everyday typing usernames to log in to Windows? Why should we even bother memorizing those foot long passwords? Nobody has time for that! Just plug in the USB Key and let your computer log in to windows automatically!

General information

ASRock App Charger

Simply installing the App Charger driver, it makes your iPhone charge up to 40% faster than before. ASRock App Charger supports continuous charging when your PC enters Standby mode (S1), Suspend to RAM (S3), hibernation mode (S4) or power off (S5). The App Charger technology has been fully applied on ASRock Full series motherboards.

General information

Dehumidifier

Dampness kills most electronics, so it's a better idea to keep your personal computer dry. Now users may prevent motherboard damages due to dampness by enabling Dehumidifier. When it is enabled, the computer will power on automatically to dehumidify the system after entering S4/S5 state.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It worked for little over a year i think?

Cons: overall if for any reason the psu would turn off it would not boot unless i unplug the atx mobo cable and plug it back in. Not only that but the first time you try to power after losing power all the fans would be on full blast and i would have to hold the power for 10 sec and restart and it comes back to life. Then one day i waa playing fallout 4 and it shuts off i was a bit mad cause i have not saved in a while. i did the trick im usually accustomed to and only the fans turn on. At that point i knew it was motherboard failure. not only that when i first got it and i put the ram in the wrong slots it gave a long beep. so just to be certain i removed my gpu and ram and i got no post beep at all. so long story short i will never but a asrocks product again and i now have a msi z97s krait coming today

Other Thoughts: Things like this makes me want to get a store bought computer because even though they (oems) spend minimal amounts of money on motherboards they last a long time from my experience

4 out of 5 eggsRead the reviews.

Pros: See rest.

Cons: This broke on me within 3 months. As other reviews state, once unplugged from power, it is all but a paper weight. After one RMA, I was furious to receive my board back STILL BROKEN. Furious, I contacted them and they paid for the shipping for the second RMA. A month and a half later, I just now got a totally new board back, and it is functional. The RMA staff personally called me to discuss the issue and informed me a new one was being mailed. Overall I was disappointed with the board but the company has made the effort to remedy my situation. Make your own decisions here.

Other Thoughts: If you are discouraged you may check Gigabyte or MSI, or any other model of ASrock since this appears to be the only broken model.

1 out of 5 eggsgarbage!!!

Pros: nothing at all.....

Cons: Board worked for 3 weeks only contacted newegg to return motherboard so I could get another board but I was told since I sent in Rebate form to get the $20 rebate that I could not return to Newegg I had to go thru manufacture to get replacement which are refurbished items. I did return item to Asrock to get another board 2 weeks received new item, board installed and once again 3 days after install the board went dead. So angry and disappointed in this Asrock product, I contacted Asrock manufacture and got no help on why this board keeps failing once again they want to send me another PIECE OF GARBAGE, Asrock refuses to refund my money they will only do exchange of same item now I know that I will never ever purchase Asrock again!!!

Other Thoughts: buyer beware!!! DO NOT BUY THIS MOTHERBOARD UNLESS YOU WANT A PIECE OF GARBAGE YOU COULD NEVER USE...

1 out of 5 eggsDefective product - shame on ASRock!

Pros: I have been purchasing ASRock motherboards exclusively for years in my computer builds. Their motherboards are usually very high quality.

Cons: As with all the other reviewers, I discovered that this motherboard gets completely bricked if the power is disconnected. I wish I looked at the latest reviews before spending hours testing the power supply and swapping components...

After a somewhat lengthy RMA process, I got a new motherboard. It powered on, but first thing I did was test it by turning the power supply off (after powering down the computer). And of course the new one is dead now too.

Other Thoughts: Shame on ASRock for sending me a replacement with the exact same defect. This entire model line is defective, and surely they know it by now. Wasted weeks of my time on this stupid RMA process (not to mention shipping cost). Could have had a new motherboard in a couple days.

1 out of 5 eggsUnplug it and get ready for no post

Pros: great BIOS
price/rebate
Asrock customer service

Cons: Unplug the psu or switch it off and prepare to be pulling your hair out trying to troubleshoot why your system won't post. I should've read the reviews and disregarded the low price / mail in rebate

Other Thoughts: I wanted to like this board, I was really hoping for a trouble free installation. First time it failed to post I was frantic thinking I somehow screwed something up. Somehow got it to boot again.

A week later I needed to reroute some cables, clean a couple fan filters, and get some numbers off my gpu to register it. Unplugged it, no post. Spent 4 hours that Saturday morning unplugging and checking everything I could think of. After getting stressed and ready to give up it finally posted again.

When I talked to asrock tech support the guy was adamant about saying the extreme 4 has this issue, not the extreme 3. So I backed up my files, printed all rma docs and switched off the psu. Switched back and hit the power button ... nothing.

Boxed it up and shipped back to newegg for a refund.

Save yourself the hassle and buy a different board. Can't believe they're allowed to peddle defective junk like this.

On a positive note their customer service helped me get my upc back that I mailed to them for a rebate. Wouldn't be able to return it if they hadn't done that.

Manufacturer Response:

• Clear the CMOS.
• Reseat the CPU and heatsink fan.
• Test with single memory module.
• Test with onboard video.
• Connect the monitor.
• Plug the 24 + 8 or 4 pins ATX power firmly.
• Connect the chassis power switch to mainboard.
• Turn on the power to check if its post.

1 out of 5 eggsDONT BUY THIS PLEASE!!!!

Pros: Its really good for the price and the BIOS is stupidly easy to use.

Cons: Same issue as everyone else. When at any given moment your PC is unplugged or the power goes otu the board refuses to turn on and dies. THIS IS THE THIRD TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED AND I'M SICK OF IT.
DO.
NOT.
BUY.

Other Thoughts: I recommend either MSI or Gigabyte MBs, NOT ASRock, they don't deserve a cent from your wallet with their pathetic service!

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY - Will Brick After Unplugging

Pros: The mobo looks good, supports Haswell refresh, SLI.

Cons: The first one I ordered stopped functioning after approximately a month. I did some pretty extensive troubleshooting, and then brought it to a local PC store, who came to the same conclusion that the mobo was bad. I did a good amount of research and discovered, as you can see in other reviews further down, that there IS A MAJOR FLAW WITH THIS BOARD. If you unplug your PC for any reason, there is a good chance it will no longer power on. After taking my chances with an RMA, I installed the new one (after about a week and a half of computer downtime), and it functioned OK for the past 4 months. This past week however, it failed me, and is no longer functional. I've followed all of ASrock's troubleshooting steps (Please spare me in your response post, ASRock), and I have since purchased a competing brand's mobo as a replacement. I want a refund, but that's not allowed under their terms. ASRock, you have a product on the shelves that is a complete failure and should be recalled. What are you going to do for me about it?

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this motherboard. I had an ASRock board in a previous build, and it worked fine for about 7 years until finally having overheating issues. However, I will not buy from them again. Look to ASUS, MSI, or Gigabyte. I am very frustrated I will have to rebuild my machine for the 3rd time and lose all my data in the reformat.

3 out of 5 eggsSomewhat bad MB

Pros: It works to this day! '
It looks nice? However i choose functionality over looks anyday.

Cons: It has 3 PCI lanes (Outdated?) cause i cant seem to find anything that really uses it
I had problems when i unpluged the dam thing all i did is disconnect the ATX PSU from it and plug it in and it works (But it has been pretty stable sense)

Other Thoughts: No i personally would not recommend anyone this product
No i would not buy it again due to the fact of the hassle it is to go inside the case and unplug it form the atx and the next time i get a cpu will be on a diffrent socket
