XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsink Design
The extra large aluminum alloy heatsinks take away heat
dramatically. As the MOSFETs and chipsets areas are well covered by
these heatsinks to protect them from overheating, MOSFET and chipsets
can perform with lower temperature, and your motherboard and system will
be more stable and reliable.
Premium 60A Power Choke
Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock's new-gen premium power
chokes effectively increase up to 3 times better saturation current,
providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.
Premium Memory Alloy Choke
Specially designed for memory power delivery, the new-gen alloy
chokes feature a highly magnetic and heat resistant design, thus
delivering more stable and reliable power to the motherboard.
Ultra Dual-N MOSFET
Combining with two silicon dies into one MOSFET, Ultra Dual-N
MOSFET provides larger die area and lower Rds(on), so the power supply
for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.
NexFET MOSFETs in memory areas use a special design for
protecting them from electrostatic discharge and offer up to 7.5 times
the ESD protection levels compared to traditional MOSFETs.
* Human Body Mode.
NexFET MOSFET for Memory Power
The next generation NexFET MOSFETs control the power supply to
DRAM slots more efficiently. They provide lower RDS(on) 2.9 mŮ,
delivering higher efficiency and lower temperature.
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.
* Tested under industry standard 105 degree Celsius ambient temperature.
Sapphire Black PCB
ASRock does not overlook any details, even those tiny ones. With
pure black PCB appearance, the new Sapphire Black PCB represents
rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch.
12 Power Phase Design
Designed with a 12 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.
Dual Gigabit LAN – This motherboard provides two gigabit LAN ports, Intel® I218V & Qualcomm Atheros AR8171.
Supports DDR4 ECC / RDIMM Memory Modules
This motherboard is capable of supporting DDR4 ECC and RDIMM
(Registered DIMM) memory modules which deliver server-grade performance
and durability for high-powered computing systems.
* ECC is supported with Intel® Xeon® processors.
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
Ultra M.2 (PCIe Gen3 x4)
The World's Fastest M.2 Socket - PCIe Gen3 x4
The onboard M.2 socket is a new interface for connecting Next
Generation Form Factor (NGFF) SSDs or other devices. ASRock is the first
in the world to implement PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 socket on motherboards. The
ultimate Ultra M.2 interface pushes the speed up to 32Gb/s which is 6X
faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to
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%
HDD Saver Technology
There's a dedicated 4-pin HDD Saver Connector placed near the
SATA ports. By connecting it to the HDDs, you can shut down or turn on
the HDDs via software when needed. HDD Saver Technology secures more
privacy, saves more energy, and extends HDD life.
Use the Hotkey [Ctrl + Alt + S] to run HDD Saver under OS.
Once you shut down your connected HDDs, they will disappear
from your file explorer screen. Therefore other people won't even know
these HDDs existed, nor can they access your private data stored on
these HDDs. You can protect your privacy easily.
Shut down and hide up to 2 HDDs for privacy when needed
Without HDD Saver Technology, all HDDs are visible all the time. Your privacy is NOT protected!
Many HDDs are used for storing data only, while ODD is not
frequently used. However, these occupied HDDs/ODD still consume a lot of
energy and increase the internal temperature of the chassis when idle.
This eco-friendly design allows you to shut down those devices for
saving more energy. You can turn them back on anytime you need them.
Switch on or off the connected HDD/ODD whenever you want! Save more energy!
It is always annoying when your HDDs fail, not to mention the
loss of your precious photos, videos, data, etc. By avoiding switching
your HDDs on and off frequently, you can protect them from any potential
damage and prolong your HDDs' life.
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.
