Today we are looking at the new ASRock Extreme4 motherboard. Let us take a look at the ASRock Extreme4 motherboard. If one like only use one video card on the Extreme4, one should insert the PCI Express video card into the PCIe2 slot, in order to get the fastest x16 bandwidth. Additionally to the three PCI Express 2.

DDR or higher clock-rates are currently only possible with overclocking. The motherboard has two USB 3. Furthermore, it offers four USB 2. This motherboard does not provide a parallel port.

The serial port is optionally available as internal onboard connector. New above all is the graphical surface of the UEFI BIOS, which permits an operation with the mouse, but although depending upon desire can be controlled also only with a keyboard. The latest at test date available P1.

The frequency of all memory modules is calculated and shown after changing the reference clock and makes it much easier to adjust the right RAM frequency. The host clock is adjustable from MHz up to MHz, the HT hypertransport frequency is adjustable from to MHz 1x to 10x and the NB frequency multiplier can be adjusted between 5x and 10x. Changes to the CPU frequency is immediately shown in the BIOS, so if you change for example the reference clock, you will see how high the CPU frequency would be with each divisor on this setting.

In our tests, it was possible to overclock to a very high MHz reference clock , which was of course added to our OCinside Team rankings. Some may think that the reference clock is no longer important for overclocking of e. Black Edition processors with unlocked multiplier, but the reference clock is still important for PC overclocking. At least when one buy high-end OC RAM and like to operate it on the maximum frequency, because this is on most boards only possible with reference clock increasement.

The boot failure guard was checked in this review as well and it was possible to start the PC on standard values with too high overclocking settings without using the Clear CMOS Jumper. It was just necessary to press the Reset button. The DDR3 memory voltage can be set between 1. Who do not know all of these settings or who do not like to know more about overclocking, can try to overclock the PC over the CPU OC mode menu.

Thus one can save for example balanced BIOS settings, overclocking settings and underclocking settings in a user profile of the BIOS to load them very quickly at any time. The downclocking or underclocking was also tested in this review. Power consumption will vary depending upon the hardware and upon the PC load. Thus, the maximum power consumption was nearly equal to the FX Professional. The temperature monitoring and overclocking features can be adjusted e.

ASRock Extreme4 motherboard received the Redaktion ocinside. Here you can buy the ASRock Extreme4 motherboard. All benchmark results only offer a comparison among themselves for a rough motherboard performance comparison.

The technical data and benchmark results 3. Serial and parallel port … This motherboard does not provide a parallel port. Power consumption … Power consumption will vary depending upon the hardware and upon the PC load.
