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.

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.

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

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mo-Board!

Pros: This mo-board has worked great for me so far. I have OC'd my CPU and RAM. The BIOS interface is great and very user friendly.

Cons: The BIOS needed to be updated (I believe 1.7 is the current version). It wasn't difficult to do though. I also lost all of my BIOS settings once I updated it, so just remember to check them after the update. This issue isn't a big deal though so no loss of eggs.

Other Thoughts: I have used this mo-board to build an OC'd gaming system. It works great and I haven't had any issues so far. The BIOS probably needs to be updated, but that's the only issue I've had. The BIOS is super easy to use and made the process of OC'ing very simple.

Here is the system info:
CPU: i5-4690K oc'd to 4Ghz
Cooler: Corsair Hydro H105
Mo-Board: ASRock Z97X
Mem: 16 GB Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 1866 oc'd
HD: Samsung 840 Evo 500 GB
Video: AMD R9 270X

1 out of 5 eggsWas good for 60ish days

Pros: It was great when it was working. Though not going to list pros to a board that died 60 days in

Cons: Board died after 60 days, was told by newegg to contact asrocks. I sent in a request for support which they responded to telling me "If it is regarding repair/RMA service, please kindly check with your dealer for related service. Please remember to record the model name & product serial number for future tracking." So Asrocks, Exactly what support do you actually provide? Seems none.

Other Thoughts: The fact that I was sent an automated email basically stating they do nothing is a joke. I doubt I will ever bother buying form asrocks again as other companies have far better options and support.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst build, very pleased

Pros: My first PC build, I was nervous and thought I might get a DOA or bad BIOS but this motherboard worked out GREAT and the BOIS was exactly what I wanted. Id recommend it. there are more features than i'll ever use, worked great with my RAM (has to change the RAM to 1600 in the BOIS no big deal) as well as my gtx 760 GPU.

Cons: as for the driver disc that came with it, ONLY INSTALL THE DRIVERS YOU NEED. and I didn't need to update the BIOS

Other Thoughts: easy first build motherboard
