General information

XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsink Design

The extra large aluminum alloy heatsinks take away heat dramatically. As the MOSFETs and chipsets areas are well covered by these heatsinks to protect them from overheating, MOSFET and chipsets can perform with lower temperature, and your motherboard and system will be more stable and reliable.

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

Dual-Stack MOSFET for CPU Power

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. 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. (Human Body Mode.)

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.

General information

Nichicon 12K Platinum Caps

Supreme 12K platinum 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 Platinum Caps that offer 20% longer lifespans and provide more stability and reliability. (* Tested under industry standard 105 degree Celsius ambient temperature.)

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

M.2 Socket (PCIe Gen2 x2 & 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 2X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5Gb/s.

General information

SATA Express Connector

The SATA Express* interface provides PCIe Gen2 x2 (10Gb/s) data transfer speed. This motherboard offers the latest SATA Express connector to enthusiasts to enjoy the ultimate performance. (* Support to be announced.)

General information

Purity Sound 2

Purity 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 applied these high quality capacitors for Purity Sound™ 2.

General information

15µ Gold Contact in DIMM & VGA PCIe Slot (PCIE2)

Unlike other motherboards come with only 3-4µ gold contact, this motherboard is coated with 15µ gold contact in the DRAM slots and PCIe x16 slot, thus providing better anti-oxidation protection than usual.

General information

Four Graphics Outputs

Never run out of graphics outputs! In case you have to connect four different types of monitors all at once, this motherboard supports all four kinds of graphics D-Sub, DVI-D, HDMI and DispalyPort.

General information

HDD Saver Technology

There's a dedicated 4-pin HDD Saver Connector placed near the SATA ports. By connecting it to the HDDs, you can shut down or turn on the HDDs via software when needed. HDD Saver Technology secures more privacy, saves more energy, and extends HDD life.

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.

Love the ASRock Extreme series boards! 8/14/2018 10:17:39 PM

Pros: Had this for over two years now (purchased in July 0f 2016), and it's still going strong, running an i7-4790K at 4.8GHz, rock-solid. Great board, lots of features, can't go wrong -- I think this is my third ASRock Extreme series motherboard now, and they've all been great.

Cons: None that I can see.

Overall Review: Feature-packed workhorse of a board that overclocks like a champ, what's not to love?

Awesome Board 5/9/2017 6:48:28 PM

Pros: I looked at all of the Extreme boards as well as competitor boards and chose this one for features and price. It fits what I need without breaking the bank. I was super surprised upon boot up to see the bios. It's probably one of the easiest to navigate I've come across with a lot of options. As a personal preference, I like that the sata ports are facing away from the board, since i have a GTX 1070 that runs right over the sata ports. If they were facing up like on some boards, I wouldn't be able to use at least 4 sata ports because of my vid card.

Cons: I would've liked to have additional RAM slots on here.

Overall Review: I didn't have issues like others, however I ran into my own issues. I bought a Thermaltake P3 case, which doesn't have an optical drive, so I couldn't the CD to setup the drivers properly. I had to rely solely on the internet and ASRock's website wasn't that intuitive. It took me a week of troubleshooting to fully understand that my Win7 edition won't operate properly with this board. I upgraded to Win10 and everything worked like a charm. Then installed Driver Booster to help me identify outdated drivers. Bad mistake on my end. It installed newer drivers, but this board isn't compatible with some of the "latest" drivers. I ended up going through a full re-install of Win10 to ensure everything was working. Instead of using a 3rd party software this time around, I instead just used Windows to search for updated drivers. It did what it needed to do and I've been gaming on this machine for a while now. It took some time to troubleshoot, but instead of RMA'ing right away, I kept at it and found a solution.

Not what i expected 12/26/2016 10:57:03 PM

Pros: - It works it works fine, just like it should.

Cons: - Within 3 months started having problems where the screen would just go dark randomly, and i wouldnt be able to get it back with out restarting my computer multiple times.

- Anytime i move my computer it takes forever for the computer itself to turn on, after messing with everything else on my computer and leaving it for awhile... it would just suddenly work. After researching forever to find out whats causing this, turns out other people have the same types of problem and this is a common thing for this motherboard.

Overall Review: Do not buy this.

Issues with Board Powering On 8/4/2016 4:15:07 PM

Pros: Good card for first 2 years I have owned it
3 Year Warranty

Cons: Intermittent Power Issues
RMA Around $50 with fees, not including shipping

Overall Review: I am replacing the board after 2 years, similar issues with others although I did not have any heat issues. Called ASRock and they offered to RMA it with $50 labor, but with that and shipping I am thinking it is time to replace this. I've had many intermittent issues with it having issues powering on after I installed a new graphics card, moved the pc over to a friends, etc. etc.

Great board for the price 5/29/2016 10:47:11 AM

Cons: None.

Overall Review: PCPartPicker of my build, so you can see pictures and other components on the board.

Great motherboard, never had an issue, has all the features I could ever need. 5/20/2016 8:18:49 AM

Pros: - 3 PCi 3.0 slots, not that I could ever use them all, maybe for future expansion?
- Great UEFI interface for easy overclocks, well laid out.
- Supports m.2 for future expand ability
- Never had an issue or crash.

Cons: - Not sure why they still include molex pin or VGA output on the motherboard, wasted space and costs.

Overall Review: Comes with a hdd saver cable that allows you to easily "disconnect" a hard drive from the system to hide the drive. I have no use it for it but just pointing that out. Great motherboard, I have owned a few asrocks boards, H97 itx, z97 itx, z97 extreme4 and built two computers for friends with z97 fatalty, and z170 extreme6 boards. Never had an issue or complaint. Asrock boards tend to come with a lot of features and they have stepped up their game in the past couple years. Their PCB use to be extremely thin, very few voltage regulators, and cheap capacitors but that has changed. They provide a lot of value in their boards now compared to competitors in my opinion.
