There are no differences with power or easy of use. They both have the same amount of power phases and the same BIOS. If you don't need the extra connectivity, then go foe the Extreme3.

I'd like to add however that the Extreme4 has 2 USB 3.0 onboard slots, so it's slightly more 'future-proof'.

I need to know the major difference between these two boards.
Extreme 7 has NF200 chip that supports 3 way sli/crossfire
Fatality pro doesn't, but has 2 x pic-e gen 3 slots, Extreme 7 has 1.
These are the main differences.

Hi friends. I want you all to see what this guy wrote about the ASRock E4 G3 board many of us own. Here's the link. The article wasn't even that well written. I'm sorry but he gets paid from MSI and ASUS under the table and not by ASRock. Not to mention GIGABYTE pays them as well. So we all know they won't dis on any of their products. Just read and please let loose with your opinions! Thanks!

If you can get the Z68 Fatal1ty Pro Gen3 I would do it. I wish I would have but right now I'm really happy with my E4 G3. It's been solid since day one. smile.gif

Kyles review on the [H] forum seemed pretty brutal , but it also sounded like he tested a defective board. I've actually done a lot of reading ( including here ) and on numerous sites , that puts Asrock twoards the top on almost all the reviews. They are a very capable brand of mb , and are getting more and more popular by the day. Asus is obviously at the top of the food chain with all thier options.....but believe me , they have thier issues as well. My next build will have an Asrock board in it.....and that's because of the "bang for the buck" you get with an Asrock board......and a ton of other review sites seem to have no issues like the way Kyle did at [H] forums.

I thought it was a little brutal too. Oh well different strokes for different folks. The board is rock solid! The guy had a defective board and doing a review like that makes no sense. Send it back like a man and get one that works like mine. This article and review state different then the [H] review!

I've pmed Kyle and offered up my Extreme 4 for testing. I did this yesterday and still no reply. I find this to be kind of shady that they (hard) wouldn't accept my board for retesting. But whatever...we all know the truth:) I tried about 500,000,000 times to post that review yesterday but I couldn't get on this website.
