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
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.

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

M.2 Socket (PCIe Gen2 x2 / SATA)

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 6Gbps modules and M.2 PCI Express modules up to Gen2 x2 10Gbps, which is 2X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5Gbps.

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 20Hz bass low freq area, Purity Sound™ still maintains its frequency response (0.4dB) and provides better bass with the TI® NE5532 amplifier, improving the bass quality by 20% (1.6dB)!

Key Master

What good is a weapon if you are unable to wield it proficiently? Key Master consists of two major features, Sniper Key and Macro Key. It can enhance your mouse and keyboard with customizable macros, sniper modes, key repeat rates and repeat delay, turning your boring old keyboard and mouse into lethal weapons. Key Master may be prohibited by some games. We suggest disabling Key Master if it violates the game's end user license agreement.


Sniper Key - Use Sniper Key to shift the mouse speed when you're in sniper mode, it will greatly sharpen your accuracy.

ASRock

Macro Key - Tired of those repetitive keystrokes? Create your own set of keyboard hotkeys and macros with Macro Key to save the trouble.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic Functionality and feature for the price point.

Pros: I do everything from Playing games like GTA5 -> Portal, live stream, render videos, run VM's. Not a slowdown.
Worked flawlessly with my 32 GB of DDR3 1.35v G.Skill Ram.

Cons: Nor really a fan of the red but it is what it is, and I don't build my systems based on the colors.

Other Thoughts: Worked great, not a single hold up in nearly a year.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board.

Pros: Looks fantastic, laid out very well, easy access to everything.

Packaging and presentation is awesome. Zip tied to foam for transport. Every care was taken to ensure this arrived intact and ready for use.

Cons: Wasn't free

Other Thoughts: This is a great board, I would buy it again in a minute.

I've had this board for just over a year now and still love it. It has given me exactly 0 problems. I've since installed it into a new case and added a video card and the board looks fantastic, run extremely well and is worth every penny I paid for it.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat product, too bad it broke.

Pros: overclocking worked well (did not try more than turbo boost)
overall very nice and well built product
came with plenty of high quality accessories (sata 3 cables, and even an sli bridge)

Cons: it stopped turning on after a few months of VERY light use due to a system time failure
customer service hours are atrocious, only 9-6 monday-friday, no weekends at all.
main power connector was incredbily stiff, had to absolutely shove it it there, very cringe worthy

5 out of 5 eggsVery happy with purchase

Pros: Nice color scheme, high quality parts, feature packed

Cons: nothing

Other Thoughts: people will probably migrate to Skylake/1151 compatible boards going forward, & if I'd waited a few more months to purchase a mobo, I would've too. As is I bought this early in in my build but didn't complete till mid November. The thirty dollar rebate made this especially attractive but I never took advantage of it; still, I felt it was a good deal even at $130 back in April.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat board for price

Pros: great board, lots of features, easy to oc if you want.

Cons: none to speak of

Other Thoughts: if you are not looking to buy into ddr4 yet, i would highly recommend this board & a 4790k. this will still last a while for any new games or anything else you may need from it.

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless, stable performance, great sound!

Pros: Very stable, does what I want it to do, onboard sound is fantastic. I had thought that I was going to get a discrete sound card, but I began looking at the comparative specs and listening to the quality I was getting from the onboard sound with my audiophile headphones and realized that it would be a waste of money to "upgrade".

Cons: Nothing really. I tried doing a BIOS update that crashed the board, but thankfully this board has a backup BIOS that was very easy to engage with a jumper. It only took a couple of minutes and I was back to normal.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked Great!

Pros: Worked very well easy to install.

Cons: The killer e2200 ethernet port it's terrible the killer software turns thing on and off the bandwidth control causes massive lag and now i can't get it to work it's very finicky the problems showed their dirty faces after the warranty expired i tried to cope with having to reinstall the driver every time i booted windows, Asrock support never responded to my email and the Killer Networking support was no help at all.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy boards with Killer ethernet it's just a marketing gimmick.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please download and install the latest LAN driver at link below to test.
If problem still persist, run the setup again and remove unwanted function/utility and keep driver only.
