ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great look and design
Fantastic overclock headroom
Easy UEFI bios
SUPERB audio

Cons: None, really

Other Thoughts: Really nice motherboard with LOTS of features for the price. Overclocks my new 7850K a whopping 1GHz. Great BIOS features and easy UEFI navigation. Rock solid stability so far as well.

It also looks really nice.. very simple and elegant design. I like the brown PCB also as it matches the black heatsinks/ports and gold caps nicely.

The onboard audio is the best I've ever used. Just fantastic quality and features. Also, the XFast USB thing actually works! My USB 2.0 HD runs SO much faster when moving files, etc. Really nice.

This is my first ASRock motherboard. I usually go with MSi, but I couldn't find one with the specs I wanted in the A88X line. This is a fantastic board.

Highly recommend!

Pros: FAST
Looks great
Red color matches my setup
Easy XMP configuration

Cons: Green PCB (can barely see it, so no eggs docked)

Other Thoughts: Really fast paired with my A10-7850K. Speeds up everything. Going to buy another set to increase RAM soon.

Highly recommend!

Pros: Better than expected performance (in everything)
Free BF4 coupon
Cheap, considering the iGPU
Great overclocker

Cons: Included heatsink & fan is no good (knew that going in)

Other Thoughts: Paired with my Antec Kuhler 620 and Noctua thermal paste, I can overclock to 4.7GHz and remain stable! Didn't expect that much headroom! Also overclocked the GPU from 720MHz to 735MHz, but haven't tried for more yet.

I am using 2133MHz ram, so keep this in mind, but I can run BF4 on medium settings and get anywhere from around 26FPS to over 50FPS in 1080P, depending on what is being rendered. Have played Deus Ex:HR and Command & Conquer Tiberium Wars flawlessly as well.

Only thing you need to do is make sure that you get updated AMD beta drivers from their website. Use the driver finder, not the normal beta drivers.. works great after that! Also, in my bios, I changed the GPU RAM from 1GB to 2GB and that boosted my performance quite a bit in BF4.
