ASRock X79 Extreme6/GB LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Intel X79
  • Core i7 (LGA2011)
  • DDR3 2400+(OC)/2133(OC)/1866(OC)/1600/1333/1066

2 out of 5 eggs Works in general, but has its quirks. 11/23/2012

This review is from: ASRock X79 Extreme6/GB LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

It works fine, for the most part. The UEFI is pretty cool.

Cons:

-The game-blaster card is not recognized when seated fully. I actually have to keep it unscrewed from the tower and pull it out a little just so it keeps in contact.

-Another issue with the board and included sound-card is when I try to connect front headphones, it sometimes freaks out and I lose sound completely (and have to restart.) But when it does work, an annoying center-window comes up (from the included software) letting me know that I plugged headphones in.

I tried running fan control through a 3rd party program, but it conflicted with the board's control, even when it was disabled.

Other Thoughts:

The most important issue to me is that only 2 SATA3 connections have the ability to do "quick boot" and "fast storage". The problem is, that I wanted to use an SSD for my primary (OS) drive, and then but my secondary HD (media) drives in RAID. In this case, you have to sacrifice one ability or the other because there are not enough capable connections.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear AsRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. The device connected Windows will pop-up once plugged the devices (speaker, MIC, headset) to the sound ports to notify user. For the fan control, please download AXTU utility at “ http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/X79%20Extreme6GB/?cat=Download “ to controlling the fan speed. If you have any technical questions please contact us at http://www.asrock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.

Thank you
