Summary: ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 MOBO: Ok, so I have had several performance model motherboards over the years; Gigabyte, MSI, Asus, and they were all fine. Nothing wrong, but nothing I wanted to sell my children for... This is not even ASRock's best board, not by two generations, and it is still an amazing upgrade. PROS: Simple setup, easy-to-understand UEFI, good track record (other purchasers), and good looking as well. CONS: None so far. I will post if I find any.
Summary: My main complaint is that the name is hugely ridiculous, would "Z68" not have sufficed? Other than that, it works as advertised. The wide array of cable connection ports available has turned out to be more useful than I expected, especially the USB ports. The BIOS (or rather the UEFI) is easy to configure, and there are comprehensive guides available online for all your overclocking needs.
Summary: I recently decided to have a go at building my own PC. I did lots of research for processors, RAM, and all the other parts I would need. As I delved deeper and deeper trying to buy the best, my budget quickly escallated. I came across reviews of Asrock motherboards, and found something that looked good, got good rating for reliability and performance, and didn't cost too much. I decided on the Z68 Extreme3 Gen3, and have been delighted with it.
Summary: Bought this motherboard after great review online. I choose it for my desktop upgrade and so far it works just fine. I do my own installation for both hardware and software and I'm pleased with its performance.
Summary: Installation was easy, the SATA ports are easily accessible and all my other hardware has worked excellently with this motherboard so far. My only regret is that a week after I bought this, the ASUS Pro something or other went on sale.
Summary: Computer specs: Intel i5 2500k Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8 gb 1600 NZXT TEMPEST 410 elite Corsair h100 Water cooler Corsair tx650 PSU Amd 6850 graphics asrock extreme 3 gen 3 Had no problems using this, worked with all my pc components above. I put the computer together switched it on and it worked. The bios is easy to use which is great for beginners.
Summary: Bought this board to go with an i5 2500k and 2 GTX 550 ti's, for the price this board is excellent, easily managed to overclock the i5 to 4.5 Ghz, the BIOS is easy to navigate and most of the time the settings can be left on automatic. Plenty of ports for most people, not as many SATA ports as other boards but 6 is enough for most people also worth noting is this board does not have any front USB 3.0 headers, so if you have a case with a USB 3.0 port you wont be able to...
Summary: I used this motherboard as the foundation for my new build and must say Im very impressed. Im using an I5 2500k processor and and it overclock to 4.5ghz... running stable using auto voltage! It has all the features you would expect from a motherboard in this price range, it is sli ready (not many in this price bracket are) and leaves plenty of space for an aftermarket cooler like the cooler master 212 evo, using G Skill ripjaws ram.
Summary: bought this motherboard along with a i5 2500k after doing a lot of research and i am glad i made the right choice in the end. This motherboard has all the features compared to the more high-end and expensive motherboards out there. The design of this mother board is well though out with enough space between the cpu socket and memory slots to place a generous sized cooler (i am using a hyper 212+ along with G.Skill ripjaws 8GB 1600mhz memory sticks and there is plenty of...
Summary: L AsRock si è fatta strada negli ultimi anni per avere realizzato ottimi prodotti a prezzi decisamente accessibili. Questa scheda madre è uno di questi prodotti. Ottima l'estetica, ottima fattura...la monto nel mio case insieme ad un i7 2600k e uno sli di nvidia 560. In più, dopo l'ultimo acquisto, 16 gb di ram (su 64gb che ne supporta). Mai avuto un problema..
