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!

be really handy for lan partys or even if you drive for your job a gaming pc that you can take with you that can max out games or near max them out.

If they only manufacture a small quantity of these boards, Imma fight you for yours! This board is amazing, and I'd love to shove one of these into a Lian Li PC-TU100B wheee.gif

What comes after 2011-3/X99 and when?
I'm still waiting for the A4-SFX, so it's either going to be this board or the next big thing. smile.gif (Hopefully)

Broadwell-E is next but that's just a CPU bump. Next platform is Skylake-E, sometime 2017 last I heard.

Also if I'm not mistaken none of the Haswell-E processors come pre-packaged with a stock cooler anyways.
This board comes with its own cooler, as this isn't the normal LGA2011-V3 socket, its a server U2 socket. The cooler provided let me OC to 4.2GHz, but it was so loud. THere is however a bracket included for a CoolerMaster Siedon AIO watercooling unit, and if you use that I bet you could OC pretty far considering the VRM on this board is a beast as well.

So you have had hands on with this board?

yea my review i think was coincidentally posted the same day as the one here, but there are rules to what i can post. Honestly, its a great little board if you are okay with a slight hit in memory bandwidth which doesn't really affect things all that much. Its a solid board, and from what i experienced ASRock didn't gimp the VRM or UEFI to limit OCing potential like I have seen on other really small boards, which means it can also overclock if you can cool the CPU.

Since the socket is different, do you think it would accommodate any of the current CPU waterblocks on the market?
