ASRock X299 Extreme4 Motherboard Review

In the next couple of weeks, we will be reviewing a few ASRock motherboards that have just recently been  released, and also a few that have already been on the market for some, but are still pretty interesting.

In this review we will focus on the X299 Extreme4 motherboard which is designed for the Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X processors. All tests will be performed on the i9-7900X processor as I don’t think that many users wish to buy 4 core processors for a high-end desktop platform when 6 core Coffee Lake processors cost not much more.
