With performance, quality and features at an affordable price point, the ASRock Z97M Pro4 motherboard is a great foundation for you to build your dream PC. Based on Intel Z97 chipset, this micro ATX motherboard flawlessly supports the 4th, new 4th and 5th generation Intel processors in LGA 1150 packaging, and incorporates two PCIe x16 slots that are ready for AMD Quad CrossFireX and CrossFireX. The Digi Power design ensures precise, efficient power delivery to CPU, and ASRock Super Alloy components guarantees unbeatable durability and stability you can count on in the long haul. Beyond what you can expect from a motherboard at this price range, this model also packs Intel Gigabit LAN, solid capacitor design, High Density Glass Fabric PCB, 7.1-ch HD audio and ELNA audio caps that elevate your experience.

General information

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.

General information

NexFET MOSFET for Memory Power

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

General information

Sapphire Black PCB

Pure black PCB appearance. The new Sapphire Black PCB represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch.

General information

ELNA Audio Caps

Who says high quality audio is only available on high-end motherboards? ASRock applied ELNA audio capacitors on mainstream and entry-level motherboards! Compared with traditional solid caps, the leakage current of ELNA audio caps is merely 3uA. This is the key to reduce noise level significantly and satisfy even the pickiest audiophiles.

General information

Intel LAN

Intel LAN provides the best throughput performance, lower CPU utilization, enhanced stability and is able to deliver ultimate network experience to users!

General information

Solid Capacitor Design

ASRock applied solid capacitors on this motherboard. With these solid caps, this motherboard is allowed to perform more stably and ensure longer lifetime.

General information

Digi Power

Unlike traditional motherboards that use analog power, this motherboard uses a next generation digital PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) design, which provides CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced.

General information

High Density Glass Fabric PCB

What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity or whatever you’d like to name it. And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit. Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.

General information

General information

USB Key

In a world where time is money, why waste precious time everyday typing usernames to log in to Windows? Why should we even bother memorizing those foot long passwords? Nobody has time for that! Just plug in the USB Key and let your computer log in to windows automatically!

General information

ASRock App Charger

Simply installing the App Charger driver, it makes your iPhone charge up to 40% faster than before.

3 out of 5 eggsGood board, but save your packaging and the little CPU protector in case you need to return

Pros: Small and good performance
4 ram slots

Cons: After about five days one memory channel went dead.
Board is very tight. Ram cannot be accessed without removing GPU if you have a large card.
One of the PCIe slots is only 4x.
The board is not full mATX length so DRAM slots and power connector are not fully supported by standoffs.



Other Thoughts: It's a good board design, but there seem to to be some quality control problems.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Vincent,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Please turn the power off, clear the CMOS.
Reseat the CPU and cooler.
Test with single memory module on each one by one to verify the slots.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid single GPU motherboard for the price.

Pros: - Solid heatsinks
- Intel ethernet
- Handles my GTX 980ti perfectly
- Runs fine with my DDR3 2133 using XMP

Cons: - HD Audio was in a dumb spot, forcing me to run the cord up the reverse side of the motherboard tray, and then up under the heatsink.

- M.2 speed is slow. Not even worth using

- 2nd PCI-E Slot could have just been a 1x slot. 1x cards still fit in it, so I guess it's not a problem. Since the second slot is 4x only, I would limit any Crossfire setup on this board to something like dual Geforce GTX 950s, or dual Radeon R7 260s.

- Multicore Enhancement feature was nowhere to be found in the UEFI. I looked up the manual online prior to purchasing this board and it was clearly shown in a screenshot.

This sabotaged my build plans, as I wanted to use this feature to put my Xeon E3 1231v3 at 3.8Ghz on all cores for Turbo mode. I was able to somewhat achieve this by setting all cores to 38x multiplier in the Per Core section. However, Speccy still indicates that they dip down from time to time, even while benchmarking.

Other Thoughts: - I would recommend this board to anyone looking to do a mATX build with some muscle.
- I would not recommend this build to anyone planning to do SLi or CrossfireX.
- If you buy this board for gaming. Get a fast single GPU. (I got a Xeon instead of an i7 so that I could afford a GTX 980ti instead of a GTX 980.)

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board, Great Features, Great Price

Pros: I got this board because it was the cheapest Z board out there on cyber Monday. Not only was it affordable, but AsRock has a great reputation, probably on the same level as Gigabyte as far as I can tell.

- Very durable - I dropped screws on it maybe 3 times and it was fine, I also was a bit forceful with my RAM dims and it took the bend like a champ.
- Stays very cool, I've never seen it go beyond 30C.
- Good audio - I'm a bit of an audio buff and I have no qualms about plugging my headphones into the front header for general tasks, very quiet, very clear and lossless audio experience.
- BIOS is very intuitive and user friendly, I picked a good decade to build a computer evidently.

Cons: - This was my first build, and budget was of the utmost importance, so this being an MATX board it was a bit difficult plugging in the fan headers. Difficult, but possible with the right amount of determination. (TIP) Pretend you have tiny fingers)
- USB3 ports don't like a lot of my hardware, for instance, I can't seem to get my external hard drive to be identified as more than a "mass storage device" with no access on this PC.
- I Don't know if it's the board or the PSU, but I've had the PC freeze screen on me a couple times and the CPU actually failed to start the next 2 attempts to boot back up again. The solution was unplugging/plugged back in the CPU power header and it worked just fine ever since. So who knows.
- Not a fault on the board, but something to consider when building with a small form factor board like this, the configuration on a mid tower case is difficult to work around, especially when installing the standoffs because they're expecting you to put in a full ATX.

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried overclocking yet, but I got this board because I bought an unlocked chip (4790k)
Never owned or used a computer this fast before, I'm blown away with the quality of the parts I picked, Extremely glad I went with AsRock Z97M

5 out of 5 eggsStill working perfectly...

Pros: It just works. I don't do a lot of tweaking or OC'ing, so I can't speak to that, but otherwise it continues to work just fine after 10 months.

Cons: None

2 out of 5 eggsHome Theater PC

Pros: Has all of the features one would want in a HTPC MoBo. Got everything running OK with Windows 10 but with the exception of hanging post when my JBODs were on.

Cons: Now for the reason I am giving this motherboard 2 egg. When I have my Sans Digital JBODs connected with the eSATA Rocket RAID 622 card powered up, the system will not post. I have to turn the JBODs off and wait till after post to turn them on. I configured the bios to only use the SSD but still the problem exists. I contacted ASRock and they provided me with a newer bios but the problem was not resolved and they told me to return the MoBo to the seller for replacement which mean I will have no HTPC until I get the replacement.

Other Thoughts: I decided to go with ASRock because my previous good experience with their other boards.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid choice

Pros: Plenty of connectivity options, anti-short coatings in the screw holes, right angle sata ports... mostly it just works and offers you all the features of the z97 chipset for solid price with a few nice little bonuses thrown in.

Cons: Front header audio isn't terribly well shielded, occasional emi buzzing...header positioning isn't always stellar, the fans in particular can be annoying when you have a larger case or big cpu cooler

Other Thoughts: overall I'd say this I'm more than happy w/ this board and I'm hoping to use it for a long time to come

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: This thing is easy to use and easy to install. I don't really have any complaints. Everything works and it comes with great features. This was rated as one of the best micro ATX boards for this chipset. It has a great price, great features, cool colors. It's just overall good value for the money. If I have any issues down the road I'll be sure to mention them.

Cons: Not really too much cons. The only thing that bothered me was that the first PCI slot is the PCI Express 3.0 x16 Slot, which can be a really tight fit if you plan to put an aftermarket cooler on your cpu, so make sure you review this. This is compatible with the Noctua NH-D15, however, you must insulate the fan clips because they come close to the GPU. If your GPU has a back-plate it may not fit.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: Works as expected and good value. Plays game with on-board video card like Batman Arkham series, Tomb Raider, Boarderlands 2 and 1.5 with no problems. The first problem I've run into is Fallout 4. I'm still using this motherboard, but I've ordered Gigabyte video card and an i7 to replace my duel core Haswell processor.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA :(

Pros: ASRock makes really nice motherboards, they are really responsive, full of options and generally favored among gamers.

Cons: Motherboard would not post, tried two (2) power supplies, reseeded cpu, changed video cards and ran without (relying on integrated video as well), changed memory/slots and cleared CMOS multiple times without luck.

Other Thoughts: This is my third ASRock motherboard, I am really surprised that it was DOA. I am really debating on trying another one, guess my winning streak is over so there is no use pushing it. All those hours lost due to cable management, boooooooo!

Manufacturer Response:
