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.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: Great motherboard, booted up just fine. Easy accessible bios with a ton of overclocking options along with your typical bios options.

The color scheme was also a selling point for me since I am aiming for a red/black theme. Everything on the board in my opinion is well placed. This is the best budget board for anyone who wants a enthusiast board at the cost of a entry level board. I have this paired with a G3258 @ 4.4Ghz easily.. I bought this board with a rebate that AsRock handled very very fast and the rebate came through. Through the process they do offer rebate tracking which tracks where your rebate is currently at. This was a very nice touch from AsRock. Most of my rebates from other brands never came back.

Cons: None really. Red and black may not match all case colors but other than that the board does everything I need it to at a more than affordable price.

Other Thoughts: Not a con, if anything it's the design of a Hyper 212+ Evo.

Fan always sits so close to the ram slots on the board. I have had different brand boards in the past where the ram slots sat where these do and the Hyper 212+ fan always gets in the way, forcing me to use it as a pull configuration. Keep that in mind, unless you are using water cooling for the CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing features

Pros: This motherboard looks amazing and has a ton of great features. It runs quite cool compared to other motherboards I've used(Gigabyte, MSI).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is my first ASRock motherboard for myself and I will say I'm pleased with it. I have installed one of these a few years back and wasn't impressed at all but this one shows me that their quality has improved significantly. I'm definitely going to stick with them from now on.

5 out of 5 eggsGood quality board for the cost

Pros: Great looks, Z97 chipset, on the cheaper side, feature packed, gaming oriented, UEFI Bios, nice overclocking

Cons: Not happening anymore, but think I should mention; When I shut down the computer, Windows would shut down but the computer wouldn't. It would stay on. I fixed this by formatting my computer. (It was about that time anyway.) It was running a little slow so I formatted my hard drive. It fixed the problem.

Other Thoughts: Got an i7 4790K running at 4.6GHz stable and cool.

Cons: Wasn't free

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

5 out of 5 eggsEverything I Wanted

Pros: This was a substantial upgrade from my older computer for the purpose of video gaming and other such media. Nothing too noteworthy to say other than it is running like a charm.

I really love the colour and build quality of the whole board. Just feels right in my hands, you know?

Cons: None to speak of.

Other Thoughts: Got this with an i5-4690K (Devil's Canyon) for a combo during Black Friday. An amazing offer and the sole reason I have proposed, without answer, to NewEgg

5 out of 5 eggsRock solid from day 1 & going strong

Pros: Hassle free getting the board to work right out of the box. It saved me some time too as it came with latest BIOS loaded. My setup is intended to stay on 24/7 running bot, and for over a month now I have never seen a hiccup. Just pop in a Plextor 256GB M.2 SSD my board is clocked to boot up faster than my Iphone 6. What makes it even more fun is it costs so much less than the equivalent boards (over-priced) from other brand. From the money I saved, I can go for more game.

Cons: It wasn't free.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked good until the warranty expired

Pros: Worked good for about 2 weeks, ultra fast bios WAS awesome.

Cons: Stopped powering up after 2 weeks, couldnt figure out what was wrong, but followed the suggestions in the other negative reviews, and found out my ram slot1(and maybe 2 also) didnt work, and I switched my 2 ram sticks to 3rd and 4th slots and it worked good for a day. then died again same issues... Hoping I can get refunded, ill be going back to gigabyte who ive used for years.

Other Thoughts: Seemed like a good buy, I was very pleased for the first week or so until it died out on me. maybe I got a dud, but its after neweggs 30 day policy, and it took me a few extra weeks to get the build together due to slow shipping after black friday, and holidays and business in the meantime
