This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Easy to install. Good installed user base to research issues and support. Very stable compared to my old ASUS P8Z68. Really simple bios compared to my bricked ASUS. Even booted up old boot drive the first time to recover my settings. Manual actually made sense.
The drivers on the software install list could have better descriptions. You go down the list and are not really sure what is needed and what can be omitted. The CPU fan is set too high and is noisy in my quiet build. Can adjust in the BIOS though. Also the manual is not clear on which SATA ports are 6GB for SSD. USE THE PAIR AT THE FAR RIGHT LOOKING INTO THE SOCKETS.
Disappointed to have the 2 year old ASUS P8Z68 fail. Not even sure its worth my time RMA the ASUS. Will avoid them in the future.
