    ASRock K7S8XE compatibility review

    The ASRock K7S8XE uses the AMD Socket 462/Socket A CPU socket. Any compatible AMD CPU will have the same socket entry.

    Conforming to the ATX standard, the ASRock K7S8XE should fit into the majority of cases. ATX is the most common form factor, and as such has a high degree of compatibility with other components while providing a decent number of slots to widen your expansion options.

    The ASRock K7S8XE does not support onboard graphics. Any system build that uses this motherboard therefore requires a separate graphics card, or a processor that has a GPU on the same die, such as AMD APU processors. There are 0 PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. The ASRock K7S8XE does not support multiple graphics cards via Nvidia SLI or AMD Crossfire.

    The ASRock K7S8XE has 6 USB 2.0 slots but no USB 3.0 slots. While USB 3.0 slots are so far by no means necessary, and with a plethora of USB 2.0 peripherals to choose from, the USB functionality on this motherboard should be fine. If planning on building a new system, a motherboard with USB 3.0 is likely to have a longer life cycle, however.
