    Default ASRock X58 Extreme6

    The ASRock X58 Extreme6 motherboard offers performance and value in a quality package to consumers. It has extensive SATA 6G and USB 3.0 connections, an improved layout from the Extreme3 predecessor, and some handy enthusiast tidbits that should interest those who want a strong overall board but don't have a hefty budget to spend.

    HTPC?! Ack, bite your tongue man! A bit of a waste with those 3 PCI-E x16 slots, but I suppose lots of storage opportunities.

    I LOVE the spacing between the top 2 PCI-E slots, extra room for improved cooling of hot graphics cards.

    Good review! Good point, extra spacing between the top two PCI-E slots was a good idea on their part, lets hope other company's start to pick up on this.

    Great review, really nice board.

    I like the IDE connection; for quality scanning of optical media is best performed on some of the older drives from BenQ and Plextor which are no longer available.

    Interestingly, I've seen it happen on ASUS boards, but at even slightly less than 4.0GHz. I may have to try this on other manufacturer boards.

    I never attention.
    How did you know it drops the bandwidth, what did you test it with?

    edit: did you overclock PCI-E?

    i would get the notice that my drive could perform faster on a usb 3 port even when it was on one. the transfer rate would drop to usb 2 as well. for me this only occurs at more than 4ghz. i kind of makes me mad cause besides the usb thing everything else is stable to 4.3 ghz. no i didnt overclock my pci-e.

    I can't believe how many SATA ports they put on this thing. I'm worried about the 666 put on the board. What does it mean?!
