Package and Contents

ASRock X58 Extreme Core i7 Motherboard

Let's first take a look at the packaging that the X58 Extreme ships in. Right away I have a complaint; I simply do not like the reflective surfaces that companies are putting on their packaging. Not only does it make it a pain to photograph, but it makes it a pain to actually read what is on the box as well. Still, after being annoyed by the reflective coating on the box, you will be able to tell that the X58 Extreme has a few interesting features.

The top of the box shows the usual CPU support logos and has the addition of a Windows 7 ready logo. Down at the bottom we find information about the power regulation on the board. The X58 sports an 8-Phase power set up (listed as V8 on the box). You also get powered E-SATA as well as SLI and Crossfire (something that is pretty much standard on the X58).

The back of the box has the usual jumble of images bragging about the features available on the board.

Inside ASRock has provided enough to get you going. There are the usual four SATA cables, two Molex to SATA adapters, a floppy and PATA cable, SLI bridge (single) manual, driver CD and I/O port shield.
