ASRock 990FX Extreme9 Motherboard Review

Review Score:

HandBrake is a fantastic free program that can be used to convert video files to many common formats for portable devices. HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multi-platform, multi-threaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows.

We used the latest V 0.9.8 version.

For our testing today we are converting a 4.4GB 720p MKV file (1h:58mins) to MP4 format, using HandBrake’s ‘Normal’ profile, for playback on High-Resolution devices. This is a common procedure for many people and will give a good indication of system power.

With the 990FX Extreme9’s excellent overclocking potential that was outlined earlier in the review, the motherboard has the performance required to allow the FX-8350 to compete with a stock-clocked Core i5 3570K in terms of High-Definition media converting.

    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 !

    The Extreme9 990FX will do very well with a 8370E. Does good enough with 9590 (I call the lazy overclockers board combo). Don’t expect it to overclock the 9590 much. It does run all 8 cores at 4.9 ghz all day with turbo turned off (a little better than 4.7/5.0 stock setting for most things). Recognizes the Avexir 2400 speed ram and sets it automatically. Just make sure you have room for a big twin tower air cooler.or a least a 240mm water cooler so you can keep that temps down.
    It does very well with crossfired R9 285s OC to 1100 Mhz (water cooled also).
    If you are going to do something likes need a big case and big power supply too. Like around 1100 watts. 285/380s need a lot more cooling to push them over 1000Mhz
