For Sale or Trade: ASRock X79 Extreme9 with Sound Blaster Card

Heatware: http://www.heatware.com/u/96001/to

Method of Payment: Paypal, Cash for Local Pickups (94538 or 95831), or Trade

Shipping: UPS ground if you want the original box with all accessories such as the front panel USB3. USPS Priority Mail if just the board (wrapped in anti-static bag), I/O Shield, and the awesome SoundBlaster card, and this is the only option for trading. I really want to avoid a trip to the UPS store. I will pack in SATA cables as well. Lower US 48 States only.

Item for Sale and Link to Item: http://www.asrock.com/mb/intel/X79 Extreme9/index.asp?cat=CPU

Price: $200 shipped each. I can include an i7-3820 for each board for a bit extra. Maybe $30 but I will need to get them so that will delay shipping for a week. Price is firm.

Description: (Pending Trade) One board was used for video editing for on-and-off a year, and then boxed and not used. (Available) The other board was the backup and was not used much at all. The thing I love about these boards is that they come with the SoundBlaster card with the Sound Core3D chip, which is the same as the SoundBlaster Z. Card alone is worth $50. These board are great for gaming. I just have too many things around.

Well, it didn't occur to me selling them until this week when I realize how many x79 boards I have, so...

Ah darn, the Extreme 9's don't seem to have the NVMe BIOS update. The ASRock X77 and X79 boards are my favorites. I'm debating it now in my head. But I wish it had the NVMe boot update.

I have not kept up with the tech, what is NVMe BIOS update? Does it allow you to have a PCIe x4 card with NVMe drive to boot?

Yes! It makes it more likely to work, especially with Samsung NVMe SSDs. There's some work around if it doesn't have the NVMe BIOS update but for me it seemed a bit risky. NVMe works no problem if using it like any other drive for non-boot of course (at least with Windows 10). It seems hit or miss on the boards, there's a few random ones that did get the update, some are beta BIOS, some are regular BIOS.

Not saying it's a bad board though! I like all the Extreme series boards from Asrock around Z77/X79/Z87. The Extreme 9's are damn good!

Here's the Extreme11 having it, listed as beta BIOS P3.30P:

Here's the Extreme 3 listing it as beta BIOS:

Why the 3 gets it but not the 9? ASRock is odd at times. :eek:
