User Experience

While the board was designed for content creators, one can’t deny that the board works great even for enthusiasts such as overclockers and gamers.

The Verdict

The ASRock Z170 Extreme6 retails at RM 959 which is a reasonable price for a board of such quality and features. A step-up in the price range lies other choices such as the GIGABYTE Z170X-GAMING 7 and ASUS MAXIMUS VIII RANGER.

Overall the Z170 Extreme6 is a solid contender for a board that Sub-RM 1,000
