This review is from: ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I've had this board for over 2 years, on year 3 now, and it hasn't failed me once. The bios is easy to use and functional, unlike my Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H, which has a terrible bios that doesn't allow me to change any settings in advanced mode. Other than that, it overclocks my 2500k to 5ghz easily. The looks are better than most boards.
Other Thoughts: Brown PCB is eh, so are the things on the heatsinks. Digi power abd extreme are alright, but whats with the random V8 on the chipset heatsink?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: None at all. Good while it lasted?
Cons: So I contacted XFX support about the rattling fan issue. They sent me a new heatsink. But guess what? For some odd reason, newegg gave me the wrong card. My card has 2 dvi ports, and it is only supposed to have one. Therefore, the heatsink did not fit. I decided to just take the fans off the new heatsink (that wasnt actually new, used and dusty) and put them on the heatsink that fit. So I did that, and put everything back together. I ran furmark to test out the card, and my computer shut off. I turned it back on, and ran furmark, and again, a crash, but now the computer does not turn on with the card in the system. The card didnt get about 75 before crashing... And also I cannot contact support because their website is down (brings me to some bogus site "Xbez eXtended Back End Support Service System")
XFX, what has happened to you?
Other Thoughts: The real support site better be up soon, because I can barely read half the broken english on the current one. If it was soon enough to return, I would... Also I don't know what happened to the card. I doubt it was my doing (did not apply to much thermal paste and short, and did not slip with the screwdriver and damage traces...)
Fans were plugged in and heatsink was put on properly.
Pros: Very fast, maxes most games.
Cons: I have 3 problems with this card. 1, the fan hits the heatsink when spinning at a higher speed, and causes a horrible rattling sound. 2, the temperature of the card gets into the 80's in games, and the card even got to 97 degrees while bitcoin mining in a well ventilated case. And lastly, the audio through HDMI only works half the time, so when my family and I were trying to watch a movie, there would be a pop from the TV Speakers and the sound would go out. Switched the rig to my brothers (Radeon HD 7850) and everything worked fine.
Other Thoughts: Dunno if I'm going to return, because I'll probably expand my water cooling loop to it.READ FULL REVIEW
