[VORTEZ] ASRock X79 Extreme4-M Review - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Ah its nice to see a review for this board. Was very interested in this board... one downside that i've seen though. On newegg its only a 1 year warranty, as opposed to the Gigabyte boards that have 5 years and ASUS's 3 years, i'm not too sure about the 1 year, its just too short.

Must think on this.

It lacks RAM slots it seems. RAM sticks over 4 GB are crazy expensive. Don't the others also use 8 slots?

why would anyone complain about PCI slots and PS/2? you don't need it don't use it, they are very cheap to implement, and they provide legacy support for devices that might not help you, but are extremely important to many people.

Board lacks port 80H display? like 99% do, then PCI is important.
Sound card? Who wants to drop their 100 sound card because their 200 board doesn't support it? lol

PS/2 is still very good for keyboards and compatbility. .
