ASRock X79 Extreme9 Motherboard Review

Legit Reviews
13 February 2012
  • Excerpt: In the past we have had several ASRock motherboards come across the Legit Reviews test bench. Every time we have been pleased with the performance. Today we have the opportunity to look at the flagship motherboard from ASRock. The ASRock X79 Extreme9 is the top dog in the ASRock Intel X79 motherboard product stack. Currently, it is retailing for $344.99 plus shipping . It falls in to the middle of the pack of Intel X97 motherboards in terms of pricing.

ASRock X79 Extreme9 LGA 2011 Motherboard Review

  • Summary: I’m left thinking back on my time with the ASRock X79 Extreme9 and I’ve honestly got mixed feelings about it. The feature set is good. The Game Blaster was a decent setup, certainly a cut above Realtek audio CODECs if only by a small margin. It’s the only board that actually let me use all the RAID controllers at once, albeit with some conditions having to be met.

ASRock X79 Extreme9 LGA 2011 Motherboard Review

  • Summary: Our experiences around here with ASRock haven’t been the best. Though the last one we tested actually did really well. As a result of our great experiences with the Extreme4 we can only hope the ASRock X79 Extreme9 follows suit. The Extreme9 is ASRock's most expensive Sandy Bridge E motherboard, we hope it acts like it.

ASRock X79 Extreme9 Review - Price For Performance?

  • Conclusion: When I first heard that ASRock were producing an X79 Extreme9,  I was a little confused - previously they've not gone above Extreme7, and their Fatal1ty range caters for the gaming crowd.  Their lower end models tend to be some of the cheapest around (e.g. Extreme3/4), and their Extreme7 sat nicely in the midrange.

  • Excerpt: Everything about the X79 Extreme9 seems to be big and the big box is where we'll be starting today. Once we've done that we'll move inside the box to see what ASRock is offering us with the X79 Extreme9 before we move onto the motherboard.

ASRock X79 Extreme9 Motherboard Review

Hardware Canucks
27 February 2012
  • Conclusion: There is no denying it; ASRock has made some huge gains in the last year or so by moving away from their old “one size fits all” mentality. Now, with the introduction of the Extreme9 they’re aiming to be a bona fide competitor against the likes of ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI in the overclocking realm.
  • Pros: - Relatively bug free UEFI BIOS, - Stable EZ OC of 4.8Ghz, - Game Blaster module is a nice addition, - XFast USB gives huge USB 3.0 transfer speeds, - HyperDuo Plus Technology included for those that want SSD caching, - 8 DIMM slots allow for 32GB of memory on a budget
  • Cons: - No cold bug fix for C0 CPUs, - No onboard sound, Game Blaster only, - BCLK and memory overclocking could use some work, - Instant boot utility did not work, - Onboard power / reset buttons blocked by GPU install in third PCI-E slot

  • Excerpt: Ни для кого не секрет, что за последние несколько лет компании ASRock удалось существенно «обновить» и улучшить свой имидж в глазах рядовых пользователей, геймеров и даже энтузиастов разгона. В прошлом дочернее подразделение IT-гиганта ASUS, а ныне самостоятельная тайваньская компания прошла нелегкий путь от производителя бюджетных и среднеценовых решений до серьёзного игрока на мировом рынке материнских плат разных уровней.

  • Summary: Finalizadas las pruebas solo tenemos elogios para este motherboard tope de gama de ASRock para LGA 2011 con chipset Intel X79 con soporte para los procesadores con arquitectura Sandy Bridge-E, el mismo se comporto de manera excelente durante todas las pruebas sin problema alguno de inestabilidad sino todo lo contrario. El poder de overclock de este motherboard es muy bueno tanto para el procesador como para las memorias.
