Package and Contents
The P55 Extreme4's box was a little different than what we are used to from most mainstream motherboards. For starters, it is rotated 90 Degrees so that all of the information is in portrait rather than landscape. This is reminiscent of the ASUS high-end products (the ROG line in particular). Of course, since ASRock is still under the control of ASUS (for the most part), this is not surprising.
Along the bottom of the box are some attention grabbers. They are intended to get you to pick up the P55 Extreme4 and drop it into your shopping cart. The sad part is that unless you are in one of the computer markets in Hong Kong, Taiwan, or China, you are unlikely to see the P55 Extreme4 on the shelf.
One interesting item is the reference to using your iPhone or iPod as a game controller. We found this very interesting as there was nothing inside the box or even on the drivers/utilities DVD that indicated this was included with the P55 Extreme4.
The back of the box is sort of a compilation of everything that is presented on the front along with some additional information that could sway a potential buyer.
Now, inside the box we found some great things. There is the typical fare of SATA cables, an SLI bridge, and the usual manuals for "quick" installation. It was another nice part that really caught our attention.
ASRock has included a front mounted (inside a 3.5-inch bay) bracket with two USB 3.0 ports on it. These ports plug directly into the motherboard and do not take up the two that exist on the back I/O panel. This is a nice touch and something that will come in handy when more USB 3.0 devices get out on the shelves.
