ASRock’s latest addition to their 990FX series of AMD motherboards, the 990FX Extreme9, aims to occupy the company’s AM3+ top spot alongside the Fatal1ty Professional board.

With premium power delivery components, compatibility with AMD’s 8 core PileDriver processors and support for 3-way SLI and CrossFire graphics configurations, the ASRock 990FX Extreme9 sports an excellent set of features which should impress the enthusiast market.

The board makes use of ASRock’s new-and-improved power delivery components which include; Gold Capacitors, Digi Power VRM, Dual-Stack MOSFET, Hi-Density power connector, and a 12+2 power phase design.

Can this plethora of overclocking enhancements and an excellent feature set translate into enthusiast-grade performance potential?

    Great motherboard, they deserve to be recognised more in the enthusiast sector. I love my ASROCK Z77 board

    Nice look board and excellent overclocks. I want to upgrade my AMD system this year, but have been waiting on the new products.

    It is a little expensive IMO for what you get, Intel boards start way under £100 today.

    Great board, sexy layout and well featured. BUT as overclocker i feel 1.5v core is just too much, even for AMD CPUs…. The marginal gains that you get from 600mhz for about 0.3 vcore increase is not worth it. For 5.0ghz, is ok, 1.5 vcore would be understable, but going upper than that is just too away from my comfort zone. I dont know if I can blame the board or a bad chip. Good review !
