[Vortez] ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Review

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Just a matter of weeks ago ASRock unveiled their Gen3 Series of motherboards. Gen3 helping to identify the integration of PCI-E 3.0. ASRock are the first to incorporate this onto their motherboards. Inside this series we have the following motherboards: Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 / Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 / Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 / P67 Extreme4 Gen3 all featuring the signature gold solid CAPs and of course PCI-3.0. Today we will be taking a look at the Z68 Extreme4 Gen3, a motherboard that supports 3-way CrossfireX and Quad-SLI and delivers many features that most enthusiasts will come to expect but at a price-tag that maybe they won’t.

An amazing looking board there!

That's a sweet looking board, glad to see Asrock improved so much over the past couple of years.

Very very nice. Now if only they update the bios occasionally, it would be on my buy list if I ever rebuild my PC.
