[MPC] Asrock z87 extreme 11

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
At times an unsung hero in the motherboard market, ASRock has picked up its game in the past year or so and has begun kicking out some high-end silicon at tempting price points. Clearly ASRock is interested in the enthusiast sector these days, and if you need proof of that, just spy a glance at its new Z87 Extreme 11 /TB20 motherboard that it's showing off at IDF 2013 in San Francisco

After the last 2 AssRock boards I had I will steer clear from this one. sicksmiley.png

Looks like MaximumPC are late to the party, no really useful news other than it's going to be making an appearance at IDF 2013

Who would use 22 sata ports? I would think that if someone needed that many, they would likely opt for a X79 workstation platform. I have 4 sata ports and I use 3, that's plenty for me.

I would get one with that many ports as I need more then 8 for all my storage devices. Also, decent RAID controllers and expanders to that many ports would cost you hundreds of dollars, so it has a certain kind of appeal. The motherboard however has to be reliable and good, but that large onboard RAID is a huge risk. redface.gif

The idea of having a 22 drive array and then dealing with a failed motherboard that's no longer available? No thanks.
