à Head over to TechPowerUp to read the full review:
“…fitted with a huge whack of PCIe expansion options and featuring a built-in LSI RAID card, attached right to the board’s PCB like it’s no big deal. The board then offers the end user a ton of SATA ports and drive capabilities that cannot be matched by any other product out there, not right off the shelf. Want to plug in 20 drives, in a variety of flavors? The ASRock X99 Extreme11 will do that with no additional hardware, and guess what? It can overclock like mad, too.”Described cadaveca, reviewer of TechPowerUp.
Yo dawg, I heard you like storage. So here are 18 SATA3 ports lined up, including 8 of them that can also support SAS3 12.0 Gb/s!
X99 Extreme11 is definitely not your typical Facebook browsing machine. It comes with ASRock’s exclusive Super Alloy features, 10 SATA3 plus 8 SAS3 ports, and there’s actually even two more Ultra M.2 PCIe Gen3 x4 32Gb/s slots hidden between the PCIe slots. Speaking of which, there are five PCIe Gen 3.0 x16 slots backed up by two PLX PEX 8747 bridge chips to support 4-Way SLI/CrossFireX in x16/x16/x16/x16 mode! Furthermore, the most optimized 12 power phase design for the best performance/power efficiency. And not to forget, support for the latest DDR4 ECC and UDIMM/RDIMM memory modules with up to 128 GB capacity and speeds up to DDR4 3400+(OC).
Put simply, ASRock X99 Extreme11 is the kind of motherboard that will knock your socks off. It will make a crazy build that excels in video editing, high speed storage, overclocking, gaming or turning your case into a pile of SATA cable spaghetti!
