Reviews
ASRock Z270 Extreme4, Intel Z270, S 1151, DDR4, SATA3, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), 2-Way SLi/3-Way CrossFire, GbE, USB 3.1 A+C, ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this board ASrock is the only board manufacturer to put everything I wanted on the board. I was going to buy a Tomahawk, but ASrock's is the only board I found to have M.2 key-E. I will list all the reasons about how great key-E is at the end. The build quality is excellent, like all modern boards (thanks to Intel), it seals away the whole FSB functionality into a single unit, so your left with almost a clean flat surface to plug your own components into - and it has more than enough headers and connectors for my purpose. I wondered why they added 2 extra sata ports (making 8 in total) - it's because each of the M.2 slots take away a pair of Intel sata ports when connected. So if you had two M.2 disks, you would only have 2 sata ports remaining. I attached my old sata disks, but have M.2 there for the future, maybe. The final thing that made me really love the board was a total surprise... as soon as I turned it on, it started gently flashing a blue light at me - immediately I thought I had done something wrong! But no, this is called AURA, and it's a feature. ASrock has a utility program on the supplied dvd that controls this ambient lighting - or switches it off if you don't like it. You can choose from many styles and colours, and it really is amazing and pleasant. The blue light it starts off with is called 'Breathe', and it gets faster as the CPU works harder! I've never been into cases with windows, but if you like that, this board would look great, and you will never get bored with all the different themes available. Why is M.2 E-key worth it? 1. Add your own built in wi-fi *and* bluetooth in one - no ugly aerials sticking out (although there is space on the back plate if you want to add two). 2. No need to use a PCI-e slot for wi-fi (or key-E - I could not even find a reliable pci-e to key-E, and even if you do, the BT connection needs to plug into an internal usb header, so quite a mess). 3. No need to use a usb port for wi-fi and/or a 2nd for bluetooth. 4. You can upgrade to a new adapter in future, unlike some very expensive high-end motherboards that have built-in wifi.
