Asrock Z270 Extreme 4 Review – The “SweetSpot” Motherboard?

Time to check out Asrock’s Value Z270 Play, the Extreme 4, in this review I take a look at the all the components and how this board maxed out the i5-7600k with no problems. Overall a very solid board with the cosmetics to match.

Brandon Swanson says:

Have it and haven’t used it yet. I read a bunch of Newegg reviews saying that their Samsung 950 EVO had burned up in the first day. Someone mentioned a motherboard bios update, I’m going to try that before I try mine.

Hello, I have a question regarding the z270 extreme 4 board. I have the same exact board and I’m bothered by this BIOS red LED light that stays on at all time. Everything works fine. It’s just that red Bios light that bothers me since I have Tempered glass windowed case. The light doesn’t go off even after I turn off the PC. The only time the light goes off is if I turn off the power supply completely. I’m running i7 7700K with 850watts power supply. I see that you have the same light on on your board. I was wondering if it’s normal to have that red light on all time? I don’t see the option to turn off the light in Bios either. There’s no goodnight LED option with this new board unlike the older asrock boards. I’ve watched other youtubers review this board and some of them don’t have the red light on on their boards.

Lemme guess … this guy’s a former auctioneer? There are probably occasions when speed talking is useful but a youtube video isn’t one of them.

Alex H says:

Aden B says:

Pccasegear’s new Asrock Mobo’s just arrived 2017
I’m confused about the ‘onboard’ wifi …it has it OR I have to get a internal wireless adaptor to plug into the mobo?
Also, which sound card would you recommend for this mobo:
– ASUS Strix Soar 7.1 PCI-E Gaming Sound Card
– Creative Sound Blaster Z 5.1 Channel PCI-E Sound Card

Denis Naumov says:

so this has wifi built into the board but you need to buy your own antennas? or what is going on with that?

NekoHazrd says:

I bought an Asus Maximus VIII Extreme and it had issues since day 1 when it would only take 2 RAM sticks, if I put in more it wouldn’t even POST. Sent it in for repairs, detected all RAM sticks but would always display an error, would still function normally though. A year later it starts doing random reboots without even displaying a BSoD, then after that it wouldn’t take 4 sticks at once… AGAIN. Tomorrow I’m smashing it with a hammer and getting this one.

Super_Slav says:

I got this board as a replacement for my MSI z170 xpower titanium which shit itself, and I actually like it better, less than half the price and more stable.

xamy butt says:

Is 530w enough for this board and i7 7700k with gtx 1070?

Thank you a lot for this review. AsRock have been doing great lately.

Got a question outside of the board.
May I know where can I get the “Levels” java app for the crosstalk test?

Thank you!
