This review is from: ASRock X99 Extreme4 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Simple oc clear cmos from exterior ports still works solid board my cpu can oc up to 4.8 but the board can only run stable and not inevitably crash at 4.4ghz highest running the most stable. you get what you pay for.
Other Thoughts: Worked first try posted quick.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: gameplay fps is so much more stable, with two r9 270x 4gv versions i used to get 220 avg fps on cs go, now i get 250-300-400 fps readings that werent possible before. Arma 3 runs entirely better and i can stream it 1080p medium 60fps in obs no problem on arma. Squad was a night and day change instantly, from 20avg fps on my amd 4.7ghz to 60 no problem avg and sometimes over 100 fps! games that are cpu reliant will be smoked by this cpu its awesome. easy to overclock as most mobos have a default oc setting up to 4.6 ghz.
Other Thoughts: best cpu ive ever had in the past 10 years.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: countless options, killer NIC Ethernet and digital optical audio port, countless usb and 3.0 ports, 2x pci-e x16 slots as advertised, ufei bios. overclocking is easy.
Cons: sometimes wont boot and u have to kill switch the psu and boot up, then it says failed boot at prompt but counts down longer as detected failed boot and starts up normally. I had this with a 2 card setup a 7870 and a r9 270x and honestly saw no difference from my ta970 biostar pci-e 16x/4x slots, 970 to a 990fx chipset was nothing gained only for overclocking. but still a nice board. saw no performance gains over an $80 mobo other than oc compatibility, and longevity in life possibly.READ FULL REVIEW
