Surprised how far Asrock has come. Only had one board from them. Weird 939 board with ULi chipset. Had an AM2 expansion slot. Still have the expansion card I never used cause the board died.

Heard a lot of good things about the prior Z68 Extreme. Curious to see these new ones benched. Might spark my interest for my next build. Been pretty solid with Gigabyte since that 939 failed. But I might not mind switching back if the features are right for the price.

Those XFast marketing stuff needs to be reviewed a little in a separate article or something. I don't really trust those numbers...
