Support for the external SATA interface, even if not quite elegant, also seems like a good point for this model, if you are thinking about an external hard drive with the most progressive connection method. The board already suffers from a shortage of fixed USB 2. The motherboard does not allow to increase CPU voltage. CrossFire has already become no less popular than SLI.

ASRock > ALiveXFire-eSATA2 R
There are more chances that you will decide to add a much cheaper second video card identical to what you already have in your system than that you will use all 6—8 SATA ports and a couple of gigabit network adapters, typical of expensive motherboards. It’s a balanced choice for an inexpensive motherboard. In WorldBench 6, the board recorded a score of 78, which is exactly what we were expecting, while 53min worth of WAV files took 1min 48sec to encode using Cdex.
Nothing was restored in our case even after a forced reboot or power-off-and-back-on. But as the motherboard would stubbornly set our memory to DDR, increasing memory frequency to DDR yielded better results.
We only had to install our graphics card driver in order to get our system fully functional. What’s also important, the cards are quite competitive and popular in their segments.

Support for the external SATA interface, even if not quite elegant, also seems like a good point for this model, if you are thinking about aljvexfire-esata2 external hard drive with the most progressive connection method. Unfortunately, only 4-pin fans can be controlled. But this option looks more than logical, if such a motherboard is not much more expensive.
CrossFire has already become no less popular than Asorck. Otherwise, we analyze their efficiency as well.
This needs to be done so that a single graphics card can run in PCIe x16 mode. Only overclockers will most likely be displeased and prefer a different model with a higher overclocking potential. Video 3Digests Video cards: We didn’t even have to use the supplied driver CD as Vista detected all of the hardware components and installed them automatically.
Dmitry Laptev lpt ixbt. We had to reset CMOS with a jumper. Memory is set to the standard frequency for a given memory module multiplier correctionif a manufacturer does not alivexfire-seata2 any ways to improve memory overclocking.
However, Northbridge heatsink is installed so that chipst CPU cooler can contribute to its cooling. Noise level, dB A: You can argue whether it’s expedient to buy a CrossFire as well as SLI Ready system — a motherboard with two graphics ports – and install just a single video card.
Overclocking In order to evaluate the motherboard and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed processor to alibexfire-esata2 maximum stable level.
The PCB layout is rather tight. Neither increasing chipset voltage nor reducing HT bus multiplier improved overclocking.
ASRock ALiveXFire-eSATA2 Motherboard Preview
The motherboard alivexfire-esata quite a narrow memory voltage adjustment range. But on the other hand, the bundle has a bracket for another two ports, and the total number of ports supported by the motherboard reaches 10 owing to SB Southbridge.
