Update to DOA board

Anonymous, Newegg
30 March 2016
  • Summary: I have rma'ed boards in the past with both msi and asus. Both have gone well and eventually got good reviews from me. This experience has really been the worst from any manufacturer I have had. I ended up going with an x99 deluxe.
  • Pros: Absolutely zero
  • Cons: Do not purchase this board unless you want an endless headache. I have built about 50 pc's in the last 5 years and never gone through anything like this. I purchased one for a build I was doing for a customer. It arrived and on my test bench would not boot. At first I thought this was due to the ...

The perfect RAID motherboard

Endrit T., Newegg
25 January 2016
  • Summary: I upgraded from the Asrock X79 Extreme 11 to this one, though the X79 has the same 3008 controller. I have a small medical billing business, and run my database, engine, and all shared drives from this PC.
  • Pros: Able to set 7 x RAID 1 arrays. Still 4 ports left of Intel chipset for other drives. Stable and practical, easy to set up. Motherboard is a work-horse when paired with 5960X. Easily brought 16GB CL15 Dominators (MD16GX4M4B3200C15) to 3200 MHz, and cpu to 4.2GHZ by changing the multiplier. Perfect...
  • Cons: LSI 3008 controller cannot be disabled on bios to skip POST, unlike the X79 Extreme 11 board. Annoying, but tolerable. 3008 controller is only capable of raid 0,1, 10, but for me RAID 1 is all I need.

Unbelievable!

Ashton B., Newegg
18 November 2015
  • Summary: I can't believe it. ASRock responded to my last review about the X99 Extreme11 by directing me to a cable that is rated to handle only 6 Gb/s bandwidth like that solves the problem.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Everything

Lack support for Corsair Dominator 3000MHz.

Rodrigo S., Amazon
16 November 2015
  • Summary: Got one of this. Aside is a monstrous board with a lot of resources, cannot use a Dominator DDR4 at 3000MHz. The board won't boot. Had to lower memory frequency to boot.

YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS S*&T UP

Ashton B., Newegg
11 November 2015
  • Summary: The ASRock X99 Extreme11 advertizes itself as a MOBO that has 8 SAS-3 ports on it. However the SAS-3 ports are the same form factor as a seven-pin SATA connector. In the MOBO manual it states "For connecting SAS HDDs, please contact SAS data cable dealers" because ASRock does not include the SAS-3...
  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: SAS-3

Terrible board, Terrible Customer Service

Tyler N., Newegg
4 June 2015
  • Summary: Took a chance with ASRock, wish I hadn't. After nothing but problems with this board, I contacted their tech support, who had me try one thing. After that failed, they then told me I had "a compatible problem" and I should return the board for a refund.
  • Pros: Fast when it was booted
  • Cons: - Took 10-15 attempts to make it through the bootloader every reboot/start. - Fast Boot / Ultra Fast boot just doesn't work.

Great Board

David H., Newegg
3 March 2015
  • Summary: If you want to bottlenecks and to never have to worry about internal storage again, this is the board for you...and the case and power supply as well.
  • Pros: No hiccups, stuck the following in it and flipped it on: 64GB - G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 Series (8 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4-19200) Intel Core i7-5960X Haswell-E 8-Core 3.0GHz NVIDIA GTX 980 GIGABYTE GV-N980G1 GAMING-4GD 4GB 1TB SAMSUNG 850 Pro SSD NZXT Kraken X61 water cooler CORSAIR AX1...

You will have to decide what you want it for before you buy.

Richard H., Newegg
1 March 2015
  • Summary: You can overclock but because you have so much running it will inherently be more unstable not allowing you to get the highest scores possible. This board says you can have your cake and eat it... I'm telling you that you won't receive the full cake.
  • Pros: More than a year on it's predecessor. Lots of features. More than any other motherboard on the market supports. To clarify previous comments, this board supports both i7 and Xeon processors. The memory you can install depends on which CPU you select. The i7 will allow 64GB of memory. The Xeon wil...
  • Cons: Read the manual before you buy the board. Using one function disables other functions on the board. The Pcie x16 across 4 slots is due to two Plex chips which quadruples the Pcie lanes (each one doubles). The LSI chip does the same thing with the Sata ports. It is similar to Plex in that it doubl...

extremely disappointed

ART P., Newegg
18 February 2015
  • Summary: all i can say is "DONT BUY THIS JUNK" i have already purchased another motherboard from newegg. another manufacturer and purchased a 1 year warranty.. BUYER BEWARE!!!!
  • Pros: the potential features
  • Cons: like many here i planned to use the asrock x99 extreme 11 as the backbone of a massive complex pc. i purchased the best and most advanced components any pc could take. 2: r9 295x2 sapphire graphics cards; a samsung 941 m.2 ultra drive; intel 5960x cpu; evga 1600 psu. i planned to overclock all th...
