The 10Gb/s Ethernet not only fully compatible with 5Gb/s, 2.5Gb/s & Gigabit Lan but also delivers lightning-fast transfer speeds, perfect for the roles of media centers, workstations and gaming PCs.
In addition to having built-in RGB illumination, these motherboards also feature on-board RGB headers and an addressable RGB header that allows each motherboard to be connected to compatible LED devices such as strips, CPU fans, coolers, chassis and so on. Users may also synchronize RGB LED devices across the Polychrome RGB Sync-certified accessories to create their own unique lighting effects.
*The addressable RGB LED header supports WS2812B addressable RGB LED strip (5V/Data/GND), with a maximum power rating of 3A (5V), a max of 80 LEDs and length within 2 meters.
*The RGB LED header supports standard 5050 RGB LED strip (12V/G/R/B), with a maximum power rating of 3A (12V) and length within 2 meters.
- Drag the tab to customize your preference.
- Toggle on/off the RGB LED switch and choose the channel.
- Select a RBG LED light effect from the drop-down menu.
A massive full coverage M.2 heatsink can support up to Type 22110 M.2 devices, it is able to dissipate heat efficiently to ensure your high-speed M.2 SSD always working at its best.
No one has time for weak WiFi signals and sluggish internet! That's why this motherboard comes with a 802.11ac WiFi (2.4G / 5G WiFi) module which supports wireless networks and Bluetooth v4.2.
Equipped with an M.2 slot that supports both the SATA3 6Gb/s and PCIe Gen3 x4 Ultra M.2 interfaces, pushing data transfer speeds up to 32Gb/s. It's also compatible with ASRock's U.2 Kit for installing some of the world's fastest U.2 PCIe Gen3 x4 SSD.
Front USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C header delivers up to a 10Gbps data transfer rate and next-generation reversible USB design to the front panel of your computer case.
Extra-large aluminum alloy heat sinks effectively take away heat from the MOSFET and chipset so that your whole system may perform more stable.
Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock's premium 60A power chokes effectively make the saturation current up to three times better, thus providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.
Specifically designed for memory power delivery, these new alloy chokes feature a highly magnetic and heat resistant design, thus delivering more stable and reliable power to the motherboard and memory modules.
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) 1.2 mO, so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.
Supreme 12K black 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, ASRock applied Nichicon 12K Black Caps that offer 20% longer lifespans and provide more stability and reliability.
