ASRock’s new OC Formula mATX motherboards have the classic OC Formula Power Kits, Connector Kits and Cooling Kits. In addition, a collection of lifestyle based features called A-Style will be implemented on the OC Formula Series motherboards. These features include Purity Sound™, which is powered by Realtek’s ALC1150 audio codec and supports 115dB SNR DAC, and two TI® 5532 amplifiers, one a Differential Amplifier and the other one a Premium Headset Amplifier that supports up to 600 ohm headphones. And there’s also cap-less Direct Drive technology, EMI shielding cover, PCB isolate shielding and support for DTS Connect, HDMI-In for instant monitor swapping between the computer and secondary devices, and Home Cloud for remotely waking and controlling computers!
XFast 555 Technology Exclusive ASRock XFast 555 technology — including XFast RAM, XFast LAN and XFast USB — optimizes your user experience with unprecedented fast response and low latency. XFast RAM creates a virtual disk from the system memory to boost the performance. For Photoshop, it can even perform five times faster than before. ASRock XFast LAN is a smart productivity tool to help you manage your internet applications, simplify your digital life, and accomplish more. XFast USB technology boosts up the USB transfer to a new level, enabling more data to be transferred in less time.
ASRock OMG (Online Management Guard) Fast, Easy and Free – ASRock OMG technology lets you 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. Normally, ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will charge for such an Internet curfew service. The service controls “all” the PCs connected at home through network remotely, but all the PCs in that network will be restricted to access the Internet at pre-setup times. However, ASRock OMG is a free tool for controlling the online access of each single PC. Parents can easily prevent their kids from going online at inappropriate times, while enjoying their own unrestricted access.
Purity Sound Purity Sound is a combination of several hardware and software audio technologies that will satisfy even the pickiest audiophile. It includes 7.1 CH HD audio with Realtek ALC1150 audio codec, 115dB SNR DAC with Differential Amplifier, TI 5532 Premium Headset Amplifier (which supports up to 600 ohm headphones), cap-less Direct Drive technology, EMI shielding cover, PCB isolate shielding, and support for DTS Connect. Unlike traditional onboard audio solutions that use single-sided output and capacitors, Purity Sound uses a differential codec for differential output. The signals go through a TI NE5532 differential amplifier with Direct Drive technology, thus providing Purity Sound!
HDMI-In Tired of constantly switching devices to connect to your one monitor? From now on just connect the monitor to your motherboard, and connect your secondary device to the motherboard's HDMI-In port. With HDMI-In, users may conveniently toggle between the computer's screen and the secondary device's screen with a hotkey, or even use their secondary device without powering on the computer.
Waterproof by Conformal Coating Conductive liquids — such as water — pretty much destroy all kinds of electronics on contact. That's why ASRock has implemented a special layer of Conformal Coating on their motherboards. It makes the motherboards invulnerable to conductive liquids, corrosion and dust. Users won't have to worry about spilling liquid nitrogen, liquid helium, or even clam chowder on their motherboards while overclocking.
Home Cloud Connect with your home or office PC from anywhere in the world using Home Cloud. You will be able to power your PC, turn it off, and take control of it remotely with another smartphone, tablet or computer.
