UEFI Tech Service
Contact ASRock Tech Service by sending a support request from the UEFI setup utility if you are having trouble with your PC.
UEFI System Browser
UEFI system browser is a useful tool included in graphical UEFI. It can detect the devices and configurations that users are currently using in their PC. With the UEFI system browser, you can easily examine the current system configuration in UEFI setup.
Restart to UEFI
ASRock "Restart to UEFI" technology is designed for those requiring frequent UEFI access. It allows users to easily enter the UEFI SETUP automatically when turning on the PC next time.
Users may prevent motherboard damages due to dampness by enabling "Dehumidifier Function". When enabling Dehumidifier Function, the computer will power on automatically to dehumidify the system after entering S4/S5 state.
ASRock Online Management Guard (OMG) technology allows you to establish an internet curfew or restrict internet access at specified times. Administrators are able to schedule the starting and ending hours of internet access granted to other users.
HDMI™ (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
This motherboard supports High-Definition Multimedia Interface™ (HDMI) which is an interface standard for transferring uncompressed video data and delivering multi-channel audio through a single cable. Both video and audio data signals transferred through the HDMI™ interface are digital without being converted into analog, therefore it delivers the richest pictures and the most realistic sounds.
Purity Sound™ - Bask in the Music
Purity Sound is a combination of several hardware, software audio solutions and technologies that will satisfy even the pickiest audiophiles. Including 7.1-Channel HD audio with Realtek ALC1150 audio codec, 115dB SNR DAC with Differential Amplifier, TI® 5532 Premium Headset Amplifier which supports up to 600 ohm headphones, cap less Direct Drive technology, EMI shielding cover, PCB isolate shielding and support for DTS Connect.
Purity Sound™ brings you:
- 115dB SNR
- Excellent Bass
- Less Sound Distortion
- More Details
- Supports up to 600Ω headphones
Traditional Audio Solution:
- 110dB SNR
- Poor Bass
- More Sound Distortion
- Less Details
- Does not support high impedance headphones
This frequency response chart is tested under 32 Ohm loading to simulate normal headphones. It indicates how traditional audio solution's frequency response drops drastically at low frequencies, while Purity Sound™ maintains its frequency response and provides better bass with the TI® NE5532 amplifier.
HDMI-In - The Smart Way to Connect Your Devices
Tired of constantly switching devices to connect to your one and only monitor? From now on just connect the monitor to your motherboard, and connect your secondary device (such as a PS3 or Xbox) to the motherboard's HDMI-In port. With HDMI-In users may conveniently toggle between the computer's screen and the secondary device's screen with a hotkey, or even use their secondary device without powering on the computer.
2T2R Dual Band 802.11ac Wi-Fi + BT v4.0 - No More Sluggish Internet

Premium Gold Caps
Premium Gold Caps are 100% made in Japan; these solid capacitors are sleek, high gloss caps with a premium gold coating representing long life Premium Gold and stable performance.
More Precise, More Efficient
By adopting digital pulse-width modulation (PWM), the ASRock motherboard can provide CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly. Compared to analog PWM, digital PWM can optimize the CPU power solution and provide a proper and stable Vcore for the processor.
12 Power Phase Design
Designed with a 12 Power Phase design, this motherboard features sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Plus, it offers unmatched overclocking capabilities and enhanced performance with the lowest temperature for advanced gamers as well.
Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM)
Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM) is an innovative new design of MOSFETs. The silicon die area is increased by stacking two dies into a MOSFET. The larger the die area, the lower Rds(on). Compared to traditional discrete MOSFET, DSM can provide larger die area and lower Rds(on), so the power supply for CPU Vcore is more efficient.
Intel® Dual Gigabit LAN
Dual LAN with Teaming function enabled on this motherboard allows two single connections to act as one single connection for twice the transmission bandwidth, making data transmission more effective.
4K is a new standard for display resolutions with a minimum of 3840 x 2160 pixels, which is twice the horizontal and vertical resolution of the 1080p format and four times as many pixels overall.
A-Tuning is ASRock's multi purpose software suite with a new interface, more new features and improved utilities, including XFast RAM, OC Tweaker and a whole lot more.
This motherboard supports Triple Monitor. You may choose up to three display interfaces to connect monitors and use them simultaneously.
DTS Connect is a blanket name for a two-part system, including DTS Interactive and DTS Neo:PC, it is used on the computer platform only, in order to convert PC audio into the DTS format.
