This review is from: ASRock X79 Extreme6 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Drivers on CD were up to date, which is very rare.
Board was updated with the latest bios.
Stickers on motherboard indicating proper RAM seating and Sata ports to use.
Correctly identified my RAM, but I did have to update the bios setting to use the XMP profile to run it at 2400. I use the (4x8) GSkill 2400 Sniper set.
Tons of USB ports.
The look and feel of the board screams quality.
Overclocking could not be more easy.
Other Thoughts: I put everything together and it booted up with no issues. Loaded Windows 7 in 10 minutes and it boots up to the login after post in 5 seconds after a few performance tweaks.
I did have to adjust some bios settings and configure my SSD for optimal performance, but once that was done I have so far been able to achieve a stable 4.5 OC and over 1000 MB / sec read/write operations on my Samsung Evo SSD. The system has exceeded my expectations.
