Default Board View files - pay sites

Hi guys
I trust this topic is OK for discussion here

When I am googling for board view files I find a lot are on various pay sites. In particular I find a lot of links to an Indonesia forum but it seems I have to pay (VIP member) to down load them: For example I am currently looking for a boardview for Asrock Z87 Exteme4

I know a lot of folks here kindly share boardview files and schematics for free -and I doubt the sites charging money actually have any sort of intellectual property rights to sell them

Having said that I am not adverse to paying for resources if they are genuinely going to be useful to me and I can't easily find them for free elsewhere.

Are any of these pay sites actually worth the money? To me 'worth the money' would be defined as actually providing good quality files, free from malware and having a high likelyhood of finding what I need there.

Cheers
Rich

If you can`t find them for free then your only option is to pay membership sometimes.You just have to shop around and see which ones offer the best value,some of them charge daily,monthly 3,6,12 months or per download,1 schematic,10 bios, 5 downloads per day etc ,and guides are usually extra.There won`t be a single site that has everything you need. Regading intellectual property rights,they`re selling something thats been stolen and sold to them, but how else can you fix things if the manufacturers won`t make schematics publicly available.

I was under the impression it was you who was looking for one I found your https://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=79449 thread

Asrock made a series of defective boards, there was even a huge reddit thread about your particular model '[PSA/Request] Possible reoccurring problem with the ASRock Z97 Extreme4' 5 years ago https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/co..._the/?sort=new

anyway I tracked boardviews for our boards and we are trying to figure out whats going on on eevblog https://www.eevblog.com/forum/repair...e-after-sleep/
