ASROCK Z97 ANNIVERSARY INTEL RST DRIVER
There is only a single PCIe Gen 3.
If you were looking forward to building a multi-GPU system with an affordable Z97 board, you will be sorely disappointed. The selection of headers and connectors that line the bottom of the board are also as sparse as its expansion slots.

Even its USB 2. There is a glaring absence of a USB 3. The last two headers are one for the Power LED, and the system panel headers.
The six SATA 6Gbps connectors of the board face upwards, similar to entry level boards, but are properly labelled. As this board is built for overclocking the Pentium Anniversary Edition chip, the DIMM slots fortunately support overclocked memory modules that have been rated to operate up to MHz. Speaking of overclocking, we were surprised the board even lacks a basic collection of onboard buttons like power and reset ones. They would definitely make operating the board in an open workbench environment a cinch. In lieu of those buttons, we resorted to manually shorting the appropriate jumpers of the system panel header in order to reset or power up the board in our test ASRock Z97 Anniversary Intel RST.
This should facilitate casings that have a short cable USB 3. Don't let the Anniversary name fool you, as this is a Z97 chipset board first and foremost.
This means it can be home to every LGA processor under the sun, not just the Anniversary edition. Layout is nice and simple, helped by eschewing a ASRock Z97 Anniversary Intel RST of add-on features that aren't much use for most folk looking to construct a mid-priced build. The rather large, chunky heatisnk covering the 4-phase power regulation components is wedged right up next to the rear IO ports.
A knock-on effect of such an approach is the relocation of the 8-pin power ASRock Z97 Anniversary Intel RST to the centre of the left-hand edge. Most reasonable chassis have a cutout near this section - to enable the connecting PSU cable to be brought around the back of the chassis - but we'd still prefer it in the usual position. More prosaically, adherence to Intel's XMP 1.
Said ASRock Z97 Anniversary Intel RST heatsink also requires fan-headers to be positioned in the centre, ASRock teams two CPU fan-headers 4-pin and 3-pin alongside a 4-pin for a chassis fan. Two further headers 4-pin and 3-pin again provide enough cooling opportunity for most users. USB 3.
Further down the board are two USB 2. Making installation that little bit easier and quicker, we'd like to see manufacturers adopt colour-coded front-panel pins, as seen on rival Asus boards.
The low-profile nature of the heatsink, meanwhile, ensures it doesn't obstruct any longer cards. Speaking of expansion ports, there's a solitary x16 PCIe 3.
ASRock Z97 vs MSI Z87
Should there be a second one, for multi-GPU setups, when such a move doesn't add a ASRock Z97 Anniversary Intel RST deal to the overall cost? We believe there should be, so do be aware of this if considering this board for two, or more, graphics cards. A further four USB 3. ASRock makes serious compromises with respect to video outputs. Note the silkscreened section between the USB 3.
