Like any major chipset release, there's bound to be a bunch of boards come in and the release of the new Llano platform is no different. The A75 board that sat at the top of the pile today when it came to grabbing the next product to test is the ASRock A75 Extreme6.

Before I started writing this, I actually headed over to NewEgg just to see what kind of price point the A75 Extreme6 came in at, and I found myself legitimately surprised to see that it was currently the most expansive A75 board at $139.99. Don't get me wrong, $139.99 is an extremely good price, but it's just a counteraction to the fact that we usually associate ASRock with offering us some of the cheapest boards on the market. Saying that, we've seen more expensive boards come from the company and stand out.

Can the $139.99 A75 Extreme6 be another board that stands out for ASRock? Well, there's only one way to find out. First we'll start by checking out the package of the motherboard. Once that's done we'll take the time to have a closer look at the board itself, its layout and some of the main features that are on offer.

Once we've done that, we'll fire the board up, get into the BIOS to see what's going on there, check out the overclocking potential of the board and then get into the fun stuff and see just what kind of performance we're able to get out of the board. First, though, let's check out the package.

The Package

On the box front there's not a whole lot going on that we haven't seen before. The front gives us the model and a couple of logos that correspond to the motherboard we're using today. Turning the box over, we've got a picture of the board up the top and a rundown of all the main features that are on it. We can also see an expansion to some of those features, showing us exactly what the board is capable of.

As for the bundle, there's not heaps going on. We've got two manuals, driver CD, four SATA cables, I/O back plate and that 3.5mm audio cable we're used to seeing with our ASRock boards that let us make use of the on / off play technology.
