j[Techspot] Asrock X99E-ITX review - Page 2

post #11 of 81
You are kidding, right?
A ITX 970 4GB from ASUS or Gigabyte is what? 150-170W.
Add 250W tops for a clocked s2011-3 i7, or half that if it is @ stock speeds. Next is summed up at 20-30W tops.

A 350W PSU is fine for stock clocks, a 450 is super safe, a 600W fine for overclocking.
I bet you that 90% of its life "on" it will be drawing less than 200W for the average OCN user.

And there are numerous ITX cases that accept full ATX PSUs, you don't have to go SFF, even for something as small as a CM Elite 110.

The draw of this motherboard is an 8-core high-power intel CPU in a tiny toaster-sized computer case. Put a mini-ITX GTX 970 with it, and you've got yourself one of the baddest gaming/workstation systems around... in one of the tiniest enclosures you can imagine.

Why would you get something like this? Simple... because you can, and it's freakin badass. thumb.gif



EDIT: Also, check the benchmarks. If the benchmarks are indicative of actual performance, ASRock has created a midget beast!

I m all about that 8 core and dual gpu combo.
post #15 of 81
put a 16 core and a titan x on that little dude, also it would be cool to have support for ecc ram.

I've gotta get one - if just for the novelty smile.gif

I don't need a multi GPU setup, but got X99 for the extra cores so this suits me well.

Asus have mentioned they are doing a small X99, I'd assume mATX but will be interesting to see if they do an MITX to compete...

I'm actually looking at going smaller for my next build but I couldn't decide between m-atx or m-itx. I wanted the small size of m-itx but I also wanted my next build to be a 5820k/X99. this mobo solves that problem and there is quite few m-itx cases I'm interested in (not to mention that there isn't that many m-atx X99 mobos to begin with sad-smiley-002.gif ).

Even a Titan X at full tilt with a 5930K in the system draws just a bit more than 400w on all rails in stock, at its worst spikes. With that system a 500w gold rated PSU is fine.

I hope this paves the way for more of these ITX mobos soon. Asus and Gigabyte better not get lazy biggrin.gif

CT4G4RFS8213.9FA2 (ECC) is on RAM support list :

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/X99E-ITXac/?cat=Memory

It's a 4GB stick so not enough to feed this little beast, further more testing is needed in order to know if ECC mode works well on it.

A good inititative from ASRock though and I quite like the idea. Maybe others vendors will give it a try too.

I just read the review and two things stood out to me besides how badass this thing is. biggrin.gif

1. Dual channel ram, in real life, is just as good as quad channel. There goes 1/2 the arguments against that I hear. The other being that you can't take advantage of 40 pcie lanes... which if you don't need them is also a non-issue.

2. Why are reviewers always so surprised when hi-powered mini builds don't immediately overheat and explode? There are so many good cooling options out there that make that assumption seem really outdated. Yes stock cooling won't do a great job... but how many x99 builds at any size use stock cooling? Get the 'net!
