Pros:

  • Excellent performance efficiency, both at stock, and when overclocked, Very respectable power consumption figures, Nicely optimized and truly informative and useful BIOS and software package, Fantastic audio rendering, thanks to superb circuit design and a great CODEC, Included LSI RAID controller, bringing SATA drive support up to 14 devices!, Support for Quad Sli and Quad Crossfire, with fu...
  • Full size CEB form factor with a ton of room plus seven PCIE slots and fourteen sata ports.

Cons:

  • Price (although it is justified, but puts it out range for most people), Weak accessory package
  • Drive performance with tested hardware is very underwhelming, High price, although I personally feel the price is justified. Unfortunately, not all users need 14 SATA ports and a builtin RAID card, PCH cooler fan is loud, far too loud, and I really do not like it at all, Not enough cables in the box for all internal SATA ports....

ASRock set out to create the “Ultimate X79 Motherboard” and I really think they have. Think about the features you would want on a motherboard, I’m pretty sure this motherboard has them! The biggest feature of this board is the seven PCIe 3.0 x16...

The Asrock X79 Extreme11 is one of the prettiest motherboards we have even seen. The use of black with outlines of gold makes the board look awesome. But the overall layout is what does it. The seven PCIe slots do not interrupt any other ports on the...

The end of summer marks the start of the X79 refresh line. We are, at best estimates, coming up to half-way in the Sandy Bridge-E life as the top of the line processor range before Ivy Bridge-E comes to market. Both chips will be expected to run...

When I first got the ASRock X79 Extreme11, I quite literally laughed when I saw the price. No matter how you look at it, $600 for any motherboard is a tough pill for nearly any user to swallow. I'll admit, that the packaging and physical feel of the...

Trovandoci al cospetto di una scheda madre dal costo elevato (circa 550€ - eprice.it al momento della redazione della recensione) le nostre pretese nei confronti della stessa, sono inevitabilmente altrettanto elevate. Il packaging con cui la ASRock X79...

International Review By TweakPC on

Vor einigen Wochen haben wir uns das ASRock Z77 Extreme 11 angesehen, eines der wohl aufwendigsten und teuersten Mainboards für den Sockel 1155. Das Board ist nicht das einzige "Luxus-Brett" welches ASRock in seinem aktuellen Programm führt. Auch für den...

International Review By overclockers.ru on

Платформу Intel LGA 2011 язык не поворачивается назвать бюджетной. Судите сами, самый дешевый процессор - Core i7-3820 оценивается в 8500 рублей. А тут еще материнскую плату предлагают за 20 000 рублей. Но стоит ли она того? И здесь не все так...

International Review By Hispazone on

El X79 sigue siendo, aun pasados los meses, la plataforma más potente de Intel y la que permite, gracias a los procesadores Sandybridge-E, las configuraciones de tarjetas de ampliación, incluidas tarjetas gráficas, más extensas. Permite también...

Intel X79平台的使用族群主要是設定給高階玩家與小型工作站用戶,最初透漏消息時是帶有SAS的高速傳輸介面,但後來為了平台穩定性或是市場區隔等因素,上市時僅有供應2組SATA 6Gb/s與4組SATA 3Gb/s接口。 主機板大廠ASRock華擎科技這回推出專為工作站用戶設計的X79 Extreme11主機板,以最頂級的規格打造,全力搶占高階PC用戶市場。其中最吸睛的就是內建LSI的SAS控制晶片,提供8個相容SATA接口的SAS介面並支援RAID...
