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 motherboard’s 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.
AM3+ 8-Core Processor Support
This board is designed to build up the most powerful system and delivers the most demanding technology for users nowadays. Just enjoy next generation computing with ASRock 8-Core CPU Ready motherboard.
ELNA Audio Caps
Who says high quality audio is only available on high-end motherboards? ASRock applied ELNA audio capacitors on mainstream and entry-level motherboards! Compared with traditional solid caps, the leakage current of ELNA audio caps is merely 3uA. This is the key to reduce noise level significantly and satisfy even the pickiest audiophiles.
Solid Capacitor Design
ASRock applied solid capacitors on this motherboard. With these solid caps, this motherboard is allowed to perform more stably and ensure longer lifetime.
This ASRock motherboard uses a Realtek gigabit LAN chip to support extremely fast internet connections.
Four USB 3.0 5Gb/s ports (Two in the front and two on the rear) for supporting all of your peripherals with fast data transfer speed.
2*PCIe 2.0 x16 (x16/x4)
Supports AMD Quad CrossFireX and CrossFireX with AMD graphics cards for eye popping, jaw dropping, mind melting visuals.
Sapphire Black PCB
Pure black PCB appearance. The new Sapphire Black PCB represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch.
High Density Glass Fabric PCB
What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity or whatever you’d like to name it. And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit. Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
ASRock’s 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.)
ASRock APP Shop
ASRock APP Shop is designed for your convenience. We provide various apps and support software for users to download. You can easily optimize your system and keep your motherboard up to date with ASRock APP Shop.
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 don’t 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!
