ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Solid board - don't hesitate 01/25/2014

This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fit into a pci slot, Windows 7 installed the drivers and all is good. Running linksys router with Tomato and boost of 70 and the Zonet in next room is measuring -57 RSSI and a quality of 38

Cons: none

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W BX80623I52500K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Robust, speedy, crunchy. Was so torn between this and the i7 2600K. I saved the Benjamin and bought a 560ti instead : )

Cons: Included heat sink fan ok but I'd rather have the credit towards something better.

Other Thoughts: Likes to OC
