With a motherboard being one of the main component decisions that a user must choose, we see things being shaken up slightly in terms of how the market looks. We’ve always seen the likes of Asus and Gigabyte leading the market, but ASRock have had a big push into the high-end segment and have been realeasing some really high-performance, high-quality boards as of late and with the launch of X79, they wanted to continue into this area and show us exactly what they could do with this new technology.

If anything, ASRock have pushed slightly ahead of MSI and have Gigabyte and Asus in their sights and are locked and loaded, ready for the kill. Their range of Extreme motherboards always seem to offer something with an up-market feel to it and offer a no frills option for consumers who want the features and quality design, without breaking the bank.

They offer this fantastic quality by using the very best components including 100% Japanese made Premium gold caps, and the latest technology as we’ll sure to see on this new X79 based board. IT features a Digi Power design, Advanced 6+2 power phase design as well as some features from their XFast range that should really see some fast results from this board.

From a first glance of what the X79 Extreme4 should have to offer, it certainly seems to be ready to rival the high-end market, and I for one are keen to see how it can compare to the big offerings from the likes of Asus. Without any more hesitation or delay, let’s get into the packaging and then see exactly what it has to offer.

    You used BIOS v1.1 on this board? Or did you update it before testing? ASRock state BIOS must be 1.2 or 1.6 for all socket2011 CPUs.
    How are you using USB3? This is not implemented in the Sandy Bridge E (or any CPU that I know of)

      We used the latest BIOS at the time.

      USB3 is implemented through use of a separate controller; usually ASMedia.
