ASRock X79 Extreme3 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Intel X79
  • Xeon (LGA2011) / Core i7 (LGA2011)
  • DDR3 2400+(OC)/1600

3 out of 5 eggs Looks to be solid, but I had trouble 04/18/2012

This review is from: ASRock X79 Extreme3 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

The board has a lot of features of more expensive boards - including overclocking options only available on $400 premium boards.
Several PWM fan headers, and two CPU fan headers for those of us who use water cooled systems like the H60.
AsRock's tech support was superb!

Cons:

Only 1 USB3 front panel connector - would have liked to see 2
Sadly, mine was DOA.
AsRock's support number isn't toll-free

Other Thoughts:

AsRock's tech support isn't toll free, but I was on the phone with a knowledgeable support person with absolutely no hold time. Well done AsRock! When RMA'ing with NewEgg, I decided to get a refund instead of a replacement - having worked with the X79 Fatal1ty for another build, I was super impressed with that board, and decided to pony up the difference in price.

I've alternated between Gigabyte and Biostar over the last several computers I've put together, but AsRock is now my board of choice. Things break, so you can't fault them for a DOA or a weird failure, but their superb tech support plus the solid build of the boards will keep me coming back.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear AsRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. AsRock mainboards are fully tested to assure that they're working before shipped. Unfortunately, due to nature of electronic product, it can happen. We have another mainboard (X79 Extreme7) “http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=X79 Extreme7&cat=Specifications” which supports 2 x USB 3.0 front panel headers. As Always, we appreciate your purchase and review. If you have any technical questions or warranty issues in the future please contact us at user@asrockamerica.com

Thank you
