equipped the Extreme 6 with eight angled SATA ports which should be enough for any office PC or gaming system.
There are also practical onboard power- and reset-buttons. ASRock also equipped the
Extreme 6 with a debug display which is very useful if you should once have issues with one of the components in your system. It is quite common that the last PCI-Express x16 slot is also the expansion slot
is the closest to the bottom edge of the board. That has the consequence that the connectors at this place aren't accessible anymore.
The Extreme 6 is no exception in this case. On the other hand there is two
slots of space between the first and the second full size PCI Express port. This means
that an SLI setup will be very well ventilated.
Totally you'll find six fan headers on the ASRock Extreme 6 which is
more than enough even if you want to provide fresh air to a high-end setup.
ASRock has chosen to place connectors next to the CPU socket, at the bottom edge
of the board as well as right above the first PCI Express slot.
Looking at the external connectors directly at the back-panel
equipped the Extreme 6 with four USB 3.0/2.0 ports, two USB
one eSATA 6 Gbps ports, one gigabit ethernet port, an analogue audio panel with
an optical out, an
HDMI port, a VGA connector, a DVI connector and a DisplayPort connector.
Furthermore there also is a PS/2 mouse/keyboard port and a CLR CMOS button.
