A little disappointed 03/05/2013
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme9 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI 2 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s connectors by Intel Z77, 4 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s connectors by ASMedia ASM1061 (SATA3_A4 connector is shared with eSATA3 port) USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Tons of features, its future proof, tons of USB ports, easy to follow instructions, simple wiring, and Dr debug is awesome if you have any issues.
Less than half of the USB ports work. I have one dead sata port and one dead PCI.
This is my first ASROCK board and I replaced my asus p8z77 with it which I now regret. I find it very irritating that I payed the priced I did for a bunch of broken USB's and other ports. I use my PC for work so the opportunity to have it down for a week+ for an RMA is out of the question. I have to say that the board does perform very well and seems to have increased my overall desktop speed. The board also looks pretty awesome, but as an over all buy for the price I payed(When I pay premium dollar I expect a premium product.) I would say pass this one up. I'll be sticking to what I know(ASUS) from now on.
Dear ASRock Customer
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. For the USB issue, please download and install both USB 3.0 Intel and Etron drivers at "http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme9/?cat=Download". For the SATA port, if external SATA3 port has used, the onboard SATA3_A4 will be disable due to sharing with eSATA3. Thank you for your purchase and review. If you have any technical questions please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We can assist you shortly.
