(Newegg) AsRock Z77 OC Formula Shell Shocker!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
It's 1:35AM, so beware.

Don't know if anybody is interested, but this is the most exciting deal I've seen in a long time, and may be useful to someone wanting to see what this motherboard can do thumb.gif Here is the link-ness to the Shell Shocker deals. Pff, 2Gb GT 630...

The original price is $240, hopefully this will be slightly cheaper.

Sorry if this isn't exactly "Online Deals" worthy, it just really caught my eye for those who want to give it a try. After all, AsRock is really coming up in the world these days! If anything, the price will be the same, but at least they get some publicity, as I know a few people that worship Newegg deals... it's not me...

Happy overclocking!!

...and free shipping which knocks the price from a shipped price of $250 down to $215. I'd say it qualifies as a deal.

I ordered one at that $250 price just a few days ago...haven't even received it yet and now it goes on sale. frown.gif

Why would a person want a board at that price that can't do dual x16 on the PCIE 3.0 slots? Wouldn't this be a better deal?

Call them up and ask them to refund the difference? *shrug*

Th Gigabyte is a very good option, especially since it currently has a small MIR, however, one possible reason for choosing the ASRock is that the Gigabyte board is optimized for gaming and the use of multiple GPUs (it uses the PLX8747 to provide the additional lanes), but does so at the expense of some single GPU performance. In addition, I believe that the ASRock is more geared towards memory overclocking with a bunch of BIOS profiles for different memory ICs and such. It does have pretty good overall functionality, though. It really boils down to intended use, brand preference and even color scheme preference...and to a degree, budget, as the ASRock comes in for around $45 less, which is over 15% (net of rebates and including shipping, etc.).

This excerpt is from a review done over at XS by sin0822 (OCN member, as well) on the Gigabyte motherboard.

Ways to implement PLX8747 and their Pros and Cons.
There is more than one way to implement a PLX8747 and produce different performance results, there are three options or actually 4 that come to mind.
1.Direct connect: All CPU lanes to PLX, and then to all slots. Pros: simple and effective, produces best multi-GPU results. Cons: Single card performance lower than without PLX.

2.Half Connect: 8x of the CPU’s PCI-E lanes are connected directly to the first PCI-E 16x slot, with the rest going to the PLX (still outputting 32x lanes even from 8x). This method can be used to help single card performance and also increase marketing by allowing the manufacturer to state that the board will have 8x more lanes than other boards with PLX, that is because the PLX will output 32x lanes whether you provide it 8x or 16x. Pros: Single card performance helped. Cons: Multi GPU (3 or more) performance may be hurt because PLX might have more delay than normal because of fewer lanes provided to it.

3.Single lane bypass: This method can give you the best of both worlds, it allows for one 16x slot or the PLX to get all the 16x lanes from the CPU at once. So one slot, can take all the CPU’s lanes, and then all the other PCI-E 16x slots will be disabled, or the PLX takes all lanes. This brings back single card performance to its best, and also provides the best multi-GPU performance from the PLX. Pros: best of both worlds, Cons: space for the switches, cost, and layout considerations.

The G1.Sniper 3 uses the direct connect implementation where all lanes go to the PLX.

Yeah, I was planning on doing that...point them to the amount of business that I do with them and see if they don't come thru with the discount.

For an average user with 3570k and air cooling, does this have any significant advantages over the Extreme4? Seems like this is geared towards benchmark chasers, but does it have better durability as well?
