    Default ASRock Z68 Extreme 7

    We have the ASRock Z68 Extreme 7 Gen 3 on the test bench. The aesthetics and performance level of ASRock products has lived up to their billing so far and they compete with other top tier motherboard companies, so let's get the Extreme 7 fired up and see what it has to offer.

    Nice!!! I wonder if its worth upgrading from my Sapphire P67 Pure Black to this board. The PCIE 3.0 slots is what I like the most since the future GPU will mroe then likely be in 3.0.

    Not sure how I feel about the onbaord video tho..

    PCIE 3.0 does not work on SandyBridge only IvyBridge. Sandybridge uses 2.0. LOL you have to acually read the review!

    that I know...(read the review, LMAO) Reason I mentioned if its worth upgrading is if I plan to change out the CPU later to Ivybrigde and take advantage of the 3.0 and of course with support 3.0 GPU as well.

    Just a question for thought... LMAO...

    I wish Intel would phase out all but one socket like just have 2011 or something although I guess you may not have as many options but at least it would be less confusing for newbies

    Your good to go then. I would highly recommend this board. The Extreme 4 overclocked as well but the PCIe 3.0 and all the bells and whistles makes this a winner. The nicest Z68 board I have worked with to date.

    Good to know... Just something for me to think about... I won't do anything yet until I know more about the Ivybridge processor and the OC capabilities and when more reviews are available... I would do a X79 system but its just too much money... lolz

    I originally planned for Bulldozer with my 990FXA system but with it being not to par with my expectation that project went to a halting stop for me.. lucky I kept my 1090t CPU so I was still able to keep use my MB.
