- 8 + 2 Power Phase Design with Digi PowerDesigned with a 8 + 2 Power Phase Design, this motherboard features sturdy components for a completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Plus, it offers unmatched overclocking capabilities and enhanced performance with the lowest temperature for advanced gamers. This motherboard uses a next-generation digital PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) design, which provides the CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced. This ASRock motherboard supports AMD FX 9590 and 9370 CPUs, which deliver up to eight cores of unlocked performance, massive overclocking headroom, and a thermal design power of 220W.
- M.2 Socket (PCIe Gen2 x2 and SATA3)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 6Gb/s modules and M.2 PCI Express modules up to Gen2 x2 10Gb/s, which is two times faster than other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5Gb/s.
- Purity Sound 2Purity 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 has applied these high-quality capacitors for Purity Sound 2.
- Full Spike ProtectionSome sensitive digital components on the motherboard are vulnerable to power surges; excessive current may cause your system to malfunction immediately. ASRock Full Spike Protection includes Surge Protection, Lightning Protection, and ESD Protection to prevent your motherboard’s components from being damaged by these unexpected voltage spikes.
- Nichicon 12K Platinum CapsSupreme 12K platinum capacitors with lifespans of at least 12,000 hours. Compared to other counterparts on high-end motherboards that have lifespans of merely 10,000 hours, ASRock has applied Nichicon 12K Platinum Caps that offer 20% longer lifespans to provide more stability and reliability.
- 15µ Gold Contact in DIMM and VGA PCIe SlotUnlike other motherboards come with only 3-4µ gold contacts, this motherboard is coated with a 15µ gold contact in the DRAM slots and PCIe x16 slot, providing better anti-oxidation protection than usual.
