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, CPU and chipsets can perform with lower temperature, and your motherboard and system will be more stable and reliable.


ASRock ASRock

Premium Alloy Choke

The new generation alloy chokes effectively increase up to 90% saturation current and feature a highly magnetic and heat resistant design, making the motherboard more efficient, stable and reliable.

ASRock

Dual-Stack MOSFET for CPU Power

Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM) is another innovative MOSFETs design by ASRock. The silicon die area is increased by stacking two dies into one MOSFET. The larger the die area, the lower Rds(on). Compared to traditional discrete MOSFET, DSM with larger die area provides extreme lower Rds(on) 1.2mΩ, so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.

ASRock

ASRock

NexFET MOSFET for Memory Power

The next generation NexFET MOSFETs control the power supply to DRAM slots more efficiently. They provide lower RDS(on) 2.9mΩ, delivering higher efficiency and lower temperature.

ASRock

ASRock

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.


ASRock

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, these platinum capacitors have 20% longer lifespans and provide more stability and reliability.

*Tested under industry standard 105 degree Celsius ambient temperature.

ASRock

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.



ASRock ASRock

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 32Gbps which is 6X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5Gbps.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Motherboard!

Pros: So far, this mobo has been great! Awesome Intel motherboard, with plenty of SATA ports and USB 3.0 ports. I love it!

Cons: Not really too big of an issue, but had some trouble when first installing this mobo with its Dr. Debug errors A2 and 99. After a little bit of trial and error with moving SATA cables to different ports the issue was resolved.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed after two months

Pros: Decent Bios Screen, easy to make changes. The board itself has a good color scheme and is appealing to the eyes. Worked great until it failed.

Cons: Totally died about 2 months in, everything that was powered through the board would not boot or power on (GPU, Liquid Cooler, etc.). After the board failed I then learned that it would cost me money to have ASRock even look at this, $50 no matter what. I didn't want to wait and went out and bought another board and everything is now working again with all my same old parts.

Other Thoughts: Learned a lesson, don't buy from ASRock or you will PAY

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsFuture proof board

Pros: This is a well designed board with PCI-3.0 slots. It has the possibility of mSATA & M.2. SSD. Note: these slots are shared with some of the Intel SATA slots. Those slots are not hot swap ports.

Cons: Four of the six Intel SATA ports are NOT hot swap. I RMAed my first board after trying every permutation of BIOS upgrade, CMOS resets, cables, drives and connection and booting up to no avail. When the new one arrived it also would not allow those same ports to detect drives. It did detect the drives when they were detected when the computer was off.

Other Thoughts: RMA process was painless and cost free with a Premier membership.

1 out of 5 eggsNot for Ubuntu

Pros: Quality good. Specs good.

Cons: Could not install Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Only way I could get the board to install Ubuntu was to disable ASMedia, meaning would lose 4 ports of the 10.

ASRock, was clear, and a bit impolite, in advising that they don't support Linux OS. And that I should just return the board.

Also the listed port numbers and specs are inflated or unclear. Some of the devices share access within those 10 sata ports. If you have a need for 10 sata devices and want to use the new tech, you may not be able to do both.

Other Thoughts: This board my be awesome for many others, if you are a Linux user, you may not get full function.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Unfortunately, mainboard does not Support/provide Linux base OS driver, which depends on chipset developer.
For more information, please visit supported OS and specification link below.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Board

Pros: Looks cool and has a fairly easy set up and bios. Easily compatible with anything you want to install.

Cons: These boards have chronic issues that a lot of users experience. The worst being that they die and sometimes will not power back on once they are shut down. The issue seems to be more prevalent with i7 4790k chips, from personal experience as well as what i have read from online communities trying to fix my issue. Also the Ethernet jack doesn't seem to recognize my cable, though to be fair that may be a windows 8 issue.
Overall this board has been the fatal link in my build and i regret buying it. I probably will not buy another ASrock product again, their quality just seems bad.

Other Thoughts: At first i thought i just got a lemon but searching online i find lots of other users with my same issues.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
The power issue on this mainboard probably will be random case.

For the onboard LAN, please connect the cable to port.
Check the LED lights are on when plugged the cable.
Test the LAN connection in UEFI/BIOS, Tools, Internet Flash (required internet connection).

However, we will be more than happy to assist you if the mainboard is malfunction.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: Relatively inexpensive, has crossfire support, and runs my new 4690K very nicely.

Cons: Only 2 USB 2 headers on it. While I know USB 2 is getting replaced, I now have 1 set of USB ports that's useless.

5 out of 5 eggsxactly what i was looking for

Pros: 10x sata/6 ports, like the UEFI BIOS interface, lots of usb3 ports.

Cons: just wish the extra 4 sata ports worked in RAID. Sata ports plug in to rear of board, makes it hard to manage sata cables.

Other Thoughts: haven't had time to oc much beyond light tweaking yet.
Renders video like a beast with i7-4790k and 16G memory
Was getting constant RAID 10 resets until I updated to latest version of INTEL RST.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT BOARD AS EXPECTED

Pros: This is my second Asrock motherboard. The first board was a Z68 Ex 3 Gen 3. Again I am VERY impressed with the value of this board. QUALITY, FEATURES, EASE of setup. WOW, what else can I say. Again ASROCK quality!!!! Love these boards.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Second Asrock board. I was a bit hesitant after hearing about issues with DOA when unplugged or PS turned off, THIS must have been fixed because this is not an issue with my board. I turn off quite often and unplug, no issues.

1 out of 5 eggsWould not recommend! If you need ASRock tech support, GOOD LUCK!!

Pros: Looks great, lots of features, seemed to be a high quality build until I tried to load Windows 7

Cons: I have had error codes since day one, My 250GB Samsung EVO drive would not load Windows after 15+ hours of Troubleshooting, even though it was loaded on it in my old PC. ASRock Support is terrible & NON-EXTISTENT really, it took them 5 or 6 days to respond to my first e-mail. No matter what I try via the "Owners Manualk, online help or what, I still get the same four error codes and boot up. 4F,62,99 A2 in this order. I am so frustrated with this board. I have built about 15 -20 PC in my day and this is the worst one I have ever had to deal with. I will not be buying ASRock again

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

Thank you for your purchase and review. We always do our best to Support customers.
However, we do reply both email and phone promptly except on week-end and holidays.
Please connect the drive on SATA3_0.
Check mainboard is detecting the drive in BIOS, Advanced, Storage Configuration.
Install fresh Windows again on particular SSD drive.
If you have any technical Support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/Support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board for the price

Pros: - Price
- 2 M.2 slots one running at PCIe 3 x4 speed
- Nice quality
- SLI support

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Currently using this board with a Core i7-4790k slightly overclocked to 4.2GHz along with a Samsung XP941 M.2 SSD in the Ultra M.2 slot getting around 700MB/s write and 1000MB/s read times booting Windows 8.1. Boot times are around 6-7 secs from cold boot to desktop very impressed with the M.2 architecture was pretty much the main reason I went with this board. Fantastic price for the features this board offers its hard to get everything you get here around the $150 range.
