2 out of 5 eggs Not a good multi-GPU board at all, though it does work 09/14/2016

This review is from: ASRock 970 Extreme4 AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: 3 x PCI-Ex16 slots
Wide CPU support
2 x PS2 connections (nice for folks that don't have a lot of USB mice/KB/KVMs)

Cons: Board does NOT support multi-GPU very well at all, almost NO throughput to the 3'd PCI-E x16 slot if you are using the other 2, and poor performance on the other 2 even when only using 2 x16 slots.

UEFI bios, like EVERY UEFI bios I've ever had to use, is a ROYAL PAIN to set up, and this one doesn't offer very good configurability outside of CPU/Memory overclocking options.

Other Thoughts: I will not even LOOK at this board again - there are less expensive options that work well for a single GPU, and there are MUCH HIGHER PERFORMANCE options at only a few $ more for multi-GPU setups.

I don't understand why they include a SLI bridge with the board, the performance even in a 2-way SLI setup is VERY POOR.

SeaSonic X Series X-850 (SS-850KM3 Active PFC F3) 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Reliable
Full modular

Cons: Lower price would be nice, but you DO get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I've been using SeaSonic X-series PS for a long time, only ever had ONE die and that one was infant mortality replaced quite quickly through NewEgg (not bad out of a few DOZEN used over the years).
SeaSonic is one of a VERY short list of power supply makers I will buy or recommend products from.
