ASRock 775XFire-eSATA2

techPowerUp!
4 March 2006
  • Summary: ASRock has delivered a rock stable and very affordable motherboard with the 775XFire-eSATA2. As we know from other ASRock boards the overclocking options are slim, so people who want OC may not be happy with this board. That's where I see the problem, Crossfire support is all nice and good but the people who want to run Crossfire are the same people that want to overclock their motherboard.
  • Pros: Good price, Crossfire support, Fan control in BIOS, Quiet, only passive cooling, eSATA
  • Cons: Limited overclocking, Few overclocking options in BIOS, Only two fan headers, PCI-E x16/x4 limits use of some cards

  • Summary: In our tests, we didn't have any issues with the Overclocking features is a bit lacking and the achievable CLK is 220MHz with a locked multiplier on the 820D processor. Overall, this board is a fast & stable board. It also works in CrossFire mode. Most importantly, it removes the bottleneck of external removable HDD through the use of eSATA technology which runs much faster than conventional USB or 1394 solutions.
  • Pros: CrossFire, Intel Matrix RAID
  • Cons: PCIe x 4, 5.1 ch audio, Fast Ethernet only

ASRock 775XFire-eSATA2 (Intel 945PL Express + ATI CrossFire)

Hardware Zone

  • Conclusion: ASRock has again managed to modify a single graphics card based motherboard chipset to support ATI's CrossFire setup and from our testing, the 775XFire-eSATA2 works as intended. Because the board uses a newer chipset with more PCIe lanes to spare, ASRock is able to deliver a board featuring seamless CrossFire integration without nasty jumper settings or slot compatibility issues.
