*It's recommended to use water cooling on this motherboard to avoid mechanical conflict on certain air cooling products.
Optimized for Water Cooling
XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsink design with active fan effectively improves heat dissipation and promotes overall performance. This is aimed for die hard gamers and enthusiasts to bring a new computing experience paired with Intel's 10-core processors.
Whether you are using headphones, headset, external or internal speakers, via USB, Wi-Fi, analog output or even HDMI, Nahimic Audio offers you the most engaging listening experience, vibrant and rich with details.
The Sound Tracker is a visual indicator that points out the directions from which predominant sounds are coming. Each sound is properly positioned in 360° on a radar for a full immersion during the game.
Base Frequency Boost (BFB) Technology
Who ever said that only K series CPUs and the Z-family platform are capable of being performed with maximum power. Via ASRock BFB (Boost Frequency Boost) Technology, users may install their non K series CPUs on ASRock's 400 series motherboards (even non Z models) and enjoy the base frequency boost with the hidden power of processors immediately.
While ASRock BFB breathes life into non K series CPUs and non Z series motherboards, the boost frequency currently still depends on the cooling system applied on your rig.
* BFB frequency performance results may vary between different CPUs and hardware configurations. Frequency shown in this chart is for reference only.
Thunderbolt 3 Technology
Thunderbolt 3 technology brings speed and versatility to the most advanced USB Type-C, offering a fast and simple connection for work or home. It enables lightning-fast data transfer up to 40Gbps and connects up to 3 Thunderbolt 3 devices with a single wire, and even provides quick charging with 5V@3A (15W). Just experience the world's fastest connectivity with Thunderbolt ready motherboards!
Dr.MOS is the integrated power stage solution which is optimized for synchronous buck-set down voltage applications! Compared to traditional discrete MOSFETs, it intelligently delivers higher current for each phase, thus providing improved thermal result and superior performance.
