ASRock had an enormous booth at CeBIT 2012 and were keen to display their full range of products. One particular highlight was showing the overclocking potential with the new X79 Professional with overclocking superstars Nick Shih and 'Smoke'.

In an exclusive interview we spoke to Chris Lee about the new Intel Z77 motherboards and got a first look at the upcoming Extreme11 motherboard. ASRock's X79 Extreme11 boasts PCI-E 3.0 slots that each support x16 even with Quad-SLI. This is all thanks to the dual PLX chips (PEX8747). A whopping 7x PCI-E 3.0 lanes (x16) are available to give 4-way SLI and 4-way CrossfireX at the highest speeds possible. Below is the interview at CeBIT 2012:
