The new motherboards continue ASRock Racks build quality that includes:

Stable - Robust Design, Quality Parts

Green - Less Heat, Less Power Consumption

Open - Industry Standard, Flexible Architecture

On a surprising note with this release, we see motherboards with E5-2600 v3 processor support that includes DDR3 memory. This might open up flexibility in builds that can take advantage of the large stockpiles of current DDR3 memory and still use the latest processors from Intel.

Let us take a look at the new motherboard line up from ASRock Rack.

The new line up of ASRock Rack motherboards looks very promising. We have tested the EP2C612D16FM motherboard here in the lab and it's a solid performing board, look for that review going live any day. The interesting twist on DDR3 might prove useful to some; we cannot wait to test those boards in the Lab.

William Harmon started working with computers back in 2005 and began overclocking all kinds of different setups. My focus back then and even now is extreme cooling using Single Stage Phase units, Cascades and Liquid Nitrogen. During this time I was also in several competitions that GIGABYTE had sponsored, GOOC 2009 and 2010. Using technics in overclocking and cooling that I have learned over the years I started building high speed workstations and servers for clients who needed higher performing systems. Many of these systems are used in high frequency trader companies and work stations used in all kinds of professions. At TweakTown, I provide and develop accurate test and benchmark methods for servers and other equipment to help make purchasing decisions easier.
