Feature Complete, Not Perfect 12/09/2013
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
This board comes with every feature you can imagine, as well as dozens separated controllers for peripherals. I was testing Xen virtualization with passthrough, and this board was great for it.
I have not been able to reset the BIOS with the switch button or the pin switch in several months. I contacted them and received no reply.
As of today I swapped out the CPU since I bought an even newer (more expensive) ASRock motherboard. I was disappointed to see that two of my ASMedia ports are suddenly no-longer functioning. I confirmed from my OS that one of the two ASMedia controllers disappeared.
I have contacted ASRock about the bios months ago and got no reply. I just sent in another ticket about the broken ports. The board comes with a 3 year "limited warranty". I hope they will honor it.
So far I would say great hardware, terrible support. I have given it 2 eggs because of the support, given the cost of this board and having only owned it for one year I. If they are willing to fix the problem, I will amend my review,
