ASRock delivers a LAN party barebones for those who crave high performance
Have you ever been to motor show where you see an amazing concept car that is breath-taking, and then the company responsible then actually makes something utterly horrible instead? The M8 is, in many respects the complete opposite of that notion.
Having previously shown off a quite radical design (styled by BMW no less) ASRock then actually went ahead and delivered it. This review model is actually a second generation M8, using a Z97 Express motherboard (which previously offered a LGA1155 Z87 design) and, while we'll accept this isn't visually to everyone's taste, when you get this very heavy (9kg) barebones computer out of the packaging it is certainly a 'wow' moment.
