Asrock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel ATX Motherboard

Posted

Pros: Enough phase for high clocks at high voltages. great layout.

Cons: No front USB3 header. Somewhat shakey LLC

I purchased this board after using it in a number of builds. After overclocking on a couple of them I finally decided it was the board for me as I was experiencing top level air overclocks as I have seen all over OCN.

After easily pushing a mediocre 2500K to 5ghz with general stability. I quickly went through a number of 2500K's all of which topped out around the same OC. ( except a few duds )

The board has been pushing 5ghz ever since It was purchased, although not folding on it, I PROBABLY wouldn't trust it to 100% load at these clocks for more than a day or so. Not that I have seen ANY evidence that it couldn't possibly do it.

Replaced by the use of the z77 Extreme4 at a comparable price point, I am only using this board in builds when I strike a great deal on it now. thumb.gif
