ASROCK 990FX EXTREME4 AMD SATA RAID DRIVER
It's the Extreme3 part of the name that causes us confusion, as you have to look very ASRock 990FX Extreme4 AMD SATA RAID at this motherboard to spot anything that looks extreme. In fact the ASRock gives every indication that it has been built down to a price, starting with the size of the board which measures only x mm. That is 25mm narrower than a standard ATX motherboard and is a clear indication that the bill of materials and the cost of components has been kept to a minimum.
Most people will find that five internal connectors are perfectly adequate but you might be a tricky customer. By contrast the Extreme4 has three slots that each supply the full bandwidth that you would expect and as a result these can be used for triples graphics gaming.

Our point here is that the Extreme4 isn't especially extreme but does qualify as a motherboard for the enthusiast. To our way of thinking this means that the Extreme3 ASRock 990FX Extreme4 AMD SATA RAID more fairly be called the FX Average. The natural consequence, unfortunately, is that there are signs of cost cutting such as the way that the chipset and power regulation heatsinks attach to the board with plastic pop pins. AsRock has also gone for the basic approach when it comes to the colour scheme.
The PCB is dark brown which is fine and the expansion slots and memory slots are black. There is no colour coding or labelling for the front panel headers and memory slots, all of which makes the PC build more tricky than it ASRock 990FX Extreme4 AMD SATA RAID to be. In fairness the five SATA ports are labelled, which is handy as ports one and two are positioned towards the foot of the board which is counter-intuitive.
The lack of colour coding is annoying as the manual refers to memory channels A black and B blackwhich really doesn't help. It took ASRock 990FX Extreme4 AMD SATA RAID a couple of attempts to install the memory in the correct slots to get the PC running in dual channel mode. Third, the end result. You may notice that the test without the heatsink lasted longer than the one with the fan.

This is because the fan leveled off after some time. The heatsink kept rising, and the spreadsheet can only hold so many data points. If I could have gone on longer, I would not have been surprised to see the heatsink temps rise higher.
In the end, all of this is not too surprising. A fan outperforms a heatsink if you can call it that, its more like a metal lid. If you were to put this system in a case, I could only imagine that the results would be much more dramatic.

The fan would probably show a bigger lead. I do have to make one last comment about this.
I would like to see how the two would perform when the board is under LN2. One thing Extreme Overclockers have to worry about is frost build up on the board, preventing this from happening can allow us to bench longer. Fans usually help with moving the condensed air away from the board. I would like to see if the fan or the heatsink would be better suited for the task, but that ASRock 990FX Extreme4 AMD SATA RAID a test for another time. First up is the main screen.
It looks pretty normal, but there is something missing. Normally this is not a big deal, and in a way really does not matter. Next up is the OC Tweaker page, with the default settings displayed. I really like how ASRock sectioned all the categories into appropriate groups.
Each sub menu is very clean. You are given three save slots with this board, and as you can tell I have already used that feature. I also like where they are located.

Most of the time this option is stored somewhere else in the BIOS. The OC Mode has 2 different settings: It will overclock your CPU by a percentage. This is a nice feature for those that really do not know what settings to play with and want a bit of an extra boost. How stable each of these settings may be, I do not know.
