M.2 Socket PCIe Gen2 x2 & SATA3
The onboard M.2 socket is a new interface for connecting Next Generation Form Factor NGFF solid state drives or other devices. ASRock supports M.2 SATA3 6Gb/s modules and M.2 PCI Express modules up to Gen2 x2 10Gb/s, which is 2X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5Gb/s.
Purity Sound 2
Purity Sound 2 includes 7.1 CH HD audio with Realtek ALC1150 audio codec, 115dB SNR DAC with Differential Amplifier, TI® NE5532 Premium Headset Amplifier, cap less Direct Drive technology, EMI shielding cover, PCB isolate shielding and DTS Connect. As Nichicon audio capacitors are what every audiophile has been longing for on a PC, ASRock applied these high quality capacitors for Purity Sound 2.
This frequency response chart was tested with 32 ohm normal headphones. It indicates how traditional audio solution's frequency response drops drastically at low frequencies. Compared to traditional audio solution's 2.0dB at 20 Hz bass low freq area, Purity Sound 2 still maintains its frequency response 0.4dB and provides better bass with the TI® NE5532 amplifier, improving the bass quality by 20% 1.6dB!
Nichicon 12K Platinum Caps
Supreme 12K platinum capacitors with lifespans of at least 12,000 hours. Compared to other counterparts on high-end motherboards that merely have lifespans of around 10,000 hours, ASRock applied Nichicon 12K Platinum Caps that offer 20% longer lifespans and provide more stability and reliability.
8 2 Power Phase Design
Designed with a 8 2 Power Phase Design, this motherboard features sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Plus, it offers unmatched overclocking capabilities and enhanced performance with the lowest temperature for advanced gamers as well.
More Precise, More Efficient
Unlike traditional motherboards that use analog power, this motherboard uses a next generation digital PWM Pulse-Width Modulation design, which provides CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced.
15µ Gold Contact in DIMM & VGA PCIe Slot
Unlike other motherboards come with only 3-4µ gold contact, this motherboard is coated with 15µ gold contact in the DRAM slots and PCIe x16 slot, thus providing better anti-oxidation protection than usual.
ASRocks X-Boost Technology is a smart auto-overclocking function and is brilliantly designed to unlock the hidden cores of your CPUs. Simply press "X" when turning on the PC, X-Boost will automatically overclock the relative components to get up to 116% performance boost! With the smart X-Boost, overclocking CPU or unlock CPU cores can become a near one-button process.
The functionality of Unlock CPU Cores feature might vary by different processors.
Some sensitive digital components on the motherboard are vulnerable to power surges, the excessive current may cause your system to malfunction immediately. ASRock Full Spike Protection includes various technologies to prevent your motherboards components from being damaged by these unexpected voltage spikes.
Protects the motherboard from excessive surges from the power supply unit.
The onboard LAN chip is protected against sudden and violent voltage spikes caused by lightning.
- USB: Added ICs to protect the onboard USB ports from electrostatic discharges.
- LAN: Prevents the onboard LAN from being damaged by electrostatic discharges.
- MOSFETs : MOSFETs in critical areas use a special design for protecting them from electrostatic discharge during the installation process.
Restart to UEFI
Fast Boot is so fast that it is impossible for users to enter the UEFI setup utility during POST. Therefore, ASRock Restart to UEFI technology allows users to easily enter the UEFI setup utility automatically when turning on the PC next time. It is designed for those who constantly need to enter the UEFI setup utility.
ASRock OMG Online Management Guard
Limit and control your children's time spent on the internet. ASRock OMG Online Management Guard technology allows you to establish an internet curfew or restrict internet access at specified times. Administrators are able to schedule the starting and ending hours of internet access granted to other users.
UEFI Tech Service
Contact ASRock Tech Service by sending a support request from the UEFI setup utility if you are having trouble with your personal computer. Users may try to choose the category of the issue they have encountered, describe the problem in detail, and then attach an optional picture or log file for our technical support team.
Dampness kills most electronics, so it's a better idea to keep your personal computer dry. Now users may prevent motherboard damages due to dampness by enabling Dehumidifier. When it is enabled, the computer will power on automatically to dehumidify the system after entering S4/S5 state.
Easy Driver Installer
For users that dont have an optical disk drive to install the drivers from our support CD, Easy Driver Installer is a handy tool in the UEFI that installs the LAN driver to your system via an USB storage device, then downloads and installs the other required drivers automatically through the internet. Completely no CD or optical disk drive required!
ASRock XFast RAM fully utilizes the memory space that cannot be used under Windows® 32-bit operating systems. It shortens the loading time of previously visited websites, making web surfing faster than ever. And it also boosts the speed of Adobe Photoshop 5 times faster. Another advantage of ASRock XFast RAM is that it reduces the frequency of accessing your SSDs or HDDs in order to extend their lifespan.
When Internet Explorer loads very slowly for no clear reason, it's usually due to inefficient management. ASRock is rolling out super efficient web management in the motherboard industry.
