Great Z690 option if you need a lot of SATA ports
Pros: - 8 sata port - built in wifi 6 - RGB - intuitive board layout
Cons: - didn't seem as hefty as the MSI equivalent - doesn't have as many power phases competitors in this price range - only 3 M.2 slots - limited usb A ports
Overall Review: This review for ASRock review rebate program. It's been 2 decades since my previous build and I gotta say things have come a long way. After doing hours of research I decided on the ASRock Z690 Extreme WiFi because of the 8 sata ports and aesthetics. Honestly, I was surprised how smoothly it went. There was no BIO upgrade needed. The XMP profile on the ballistic 16gb 3200 loaded without a hitch. I hooked everything up and pressed the power button and I was in business.
