Asrock X79 Extreme6 ATX Intel Motherboard

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #42 in Intel Motherboards

Posted

Pros: Sleek, 8 DIMMS, Plenty of SATA, Robust I/O, Cheap

Cons: A Chassis Fan Connector Placement Is Behind GPU

First off, there is not much to be said that isn't a specific question as to features or compatibility. Almost all LGA 2011 motherboards are good, its more down to your preferred brand and color scheme.

This is a very nice mobo, it has a robust I/O, is not too overly expensive, and looks just as good as any ROG board. The placement of all the on-board connectors are pretty good wit the exception of the one fan connector. The board itself runs cool and isn't too loud, but that little South Bridge fan can go up to around 6500RPM. Dr. Debug is somewhat useful, but mostly for show. Most of he codes it shows are merely cosmetic to show that its doing something. The internal Power and Reset buttons are nice for benching.
