XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsink Design

The extra large aluminum alloy heatsinks take away heat dramatically. As the MOSFETs and chipsets areas are well covered by these heatsinks to protect them from overheating, CPU and chipsets can perform with lower temperature, and your motherboard and system will be more stable and reliable.


ASRock ASRock

Premium Alloy Choke

The new generation alloy chokes effectively increase up to 90% saturation current and feature a highly magnetic and heat resistant design, making the motherboard more efficient, stable and reliable.

Dual-Stack MOSFET for CPU Power

Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM) is another innovative MOSFETs design by ASRock. The silicon die area is increased by stacking two dies into one MOSFET. The larger the die area, the lower Rds(on). Compared to traditional discrete MOSFET, DSM with larger die area provides extreme lower Rds(on) 1.2mΩ, so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.

ASRock

ASRock

NexFET MOSFET for Memory Power

The next generation NexFET MOSFETs control the power supply to DRAM slots more efficiently. They provide lower RDS(on) 2.9mΩ, delivering higher efficiency and lower temperature.

ASRock

ASRock

NexFET MOSFETs in memory areas use a special design for protecting them from electrostatic discharge and offer up to 7.5 times the ESD protection levels compared to traditional MOSFETs.
*Human Body Mode.


ASRock

12K Platinum Caps

Supreme 12K platinum capacitors with lifespans of at least 12,000 hours. Compared to other counterparts on high-end motherboards that merely have lifespans of around 10,000 hours, these platinum capacitors have 20% longer lifespans and provide more stability and reliability.

*Tested under industry standard 105 degree Celsius ambient temperature.

Sapphire Black PCB

ASRock does not overlook any details, even those tiny ones. With pure black PCB appearance, the new Sapphire Black PCB represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch.

Ultra M.2 (PCIe Gen3 x4)
The World's Fastest M.2 Socket - PCIe Gen3 x4

The onboard M.2 socket is a new interface for connecting Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) SSDs or other devices. ASRock is the first in the world to implement PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 socket on motherboards. The ultimate Ultra M.2 interface pushes the speed up to 32Gbps which is 6X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5Gbps.

I had high hopes but it turned into a huge disappointment

Pros: 2x M.2 ports
lots of fan ports, USB ports and storage options.
Warranty lasts 3 yrs. You'll need every last minute of it and more.

Cons: I'm on my second RMA.

Other Thoughts: My first motherboard (new) performed great for just short of a year. I was not overclocking my CPU, using the built-in video, running everything stock. The system started having problems completing a boot cycle and eventually died. I RMA'd the board with Asrock. They sent me a different replacement board (different serial numbers) and that one lasted less than 5 months. Now I have to try to get another RMA for this one.

Intel 4790K, Trindent X 1866 4x 8GB (32GB), onboard video, XFX Pro1000W

Deluxe MoBo ... total quality product!

Pros: - has all the "bells and whistles";
- easy to use UEFI BIOS;
- Many fan headers and M2 slots on board!

Cons: - too many 3- pin, but not as many 4-pin fan headers on board.

Would buy again

Pros: This motherboard slipped right in to my Corsair 200R case. The installation was uneventful and the motherboard runs stable. Asrock places effective heatsinks on critical components that tend to run hot. I am running an i5 LGA 1150 Intel proc with 4x4 Ballistix memory sticks that I had left from the previous board that cratered.

Cons: The primary SATA ports cannot be reached after my EVGA 1060 is plugged in. No biggie.

Excellent Board But failed after one and a half years.

Pros: Ease of set up, Sata ports galore, much room to grow and excellent company with great customer service

Cons: Nothing except the board failing.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this motherboard after having my other computer for over 10 years and tweaking it. At that point i was ready to upgrade to an affordable mid grade mobo. Enter the ASROCK Z97 Extreme 6. After much research, this was the board that would handle my gaming and plex server with alot of room to grow. The UEFI and set up was straightforward and easy to use with plenty of options for overclocking which was the future plan. Even though this board failed after one and a half years, I would still recommend this product to anyone looking to start a mid grade rig with an LGA 1150 chipset.

Good replacement for my Z87 Gigabyte board

Pros: Full featured. Every port that I needed was on the board
10 SATA ports
Competitive pricing compared to other boards with similar (and sometimes) fewer features.
Installed in mid tower ATX case.

Cons: Have only had the board a short time. Can't tell if it will have a good lifespan.

Other Thoughts: I usually buy Gigabyte and MSI motherboards (although I have probably used many other brands in the past). This time my Gigabyte board started having problems with the SATA ports and nothing I did (clear CMOS, reload BIOS) would get them stable again. I was happy with my Haswell I7-4770K CPU and 16GB DDR memory and didn't see any need to upgrade to 7th generation Intel as my desktop meets all my performance needs. Many of the big name Z97 motherboards were in the $250-$300 range an often didn't have the features I need. Never tried ASRock before but some research showed that they are the third largest motherboard manufacturer in the world after ASUS and Gigabyte so I decided to give them a shot. Installed the new motherboard and it booted right up. I upgraded the firmware to the latest release (2.70) and then installed the ASRock APP Shop (their version of live update) and upgraded the rest of the drivers (just a few...most carried over from the Gigabyte board). Played around with the BIOS a little but really just loaded "optimum defaults" and all went well. Now if it lasts 3 years I will be happy. By then it will be time for some new upgrade.
Only problem was with Microsoft transferring the Windows 10 license. I had registered my old license on my Microsoft account but couldn't transfer it. Had to Chat with MS technical support in India and they had to log on to my machine to fix the activation issue. Turns out they could not activate my machine with the US servers and had to change to the UK servers to activate my license. Go figure.

Best z97 Motherboard there is. Period!

Pros: I own two of these boards, and while one of them had some quirks, a quick jaunt to and fro ASRock's warranty center, via UPS, fixed those right up. It has so many advanced features for the generation. So few z97 boards offer as many features as this one does.

Cons: This is more a limitation of the chip set and not the motherboard itself, BUT I wish there were more PCIe lanes. Haha.
