With performance, quality and features at an affordable price point, the ASRock Z97M Pro4 motherboard is a great foundation for you to build your dream PC. Based on Intel Z97 chipset, this micro ATX motherboard flawlessly supports the 4th, new 4th and 5th generation Intel processors in LGA 1150 packaging, and incorporates two PCIe x16 slots that are ready for AMD Quad CrossFireX and CrossFireX. The Digi Power design ensures precise, efficient power delivery to CPU, and ASRock Super Alloy components guarantees unbeatable durability and stability you can count on in the long haul. Beyond what you can expect from a motherboard at this price range, this model also packs Intel Gigabit LAN, solid capacitor design, High Density Glass Fabric PCB, 7.1-ch HD audio and ELNA audio caps that elevate your experience.
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.
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. 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.
Sapphire Black PCB
Pure black PCB appearance. The new Sapphire Black PCB represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch.
ELNA Audio Caps
Who says high quality audio is only available on high-end motherboards? ASRock applied ELNA audio capacitors on mainstream and entry-level motherboards! Compared with traditional solid caps, the leakage current of ELNA audio caps is merely 3uA. This is the key to reduce noise level significantly and satisfy even the pickiest audiophiles.
Intel LAN provides the best throughput performance, lower CPU utilization, enhanced stability and is able to deliver ultimate network experience to users!
Solid Capacitor Design
ASRock applied solid capacitors on this motherboard. With these solid caps, this motherboard is allowed to perform more stably and ensure longer lifetime.
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.
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.

In a world where time is money, why waste precious time everyday typing usernames to log in to Windows? Why should we even bother memorizing those foot long passwords? Nobody has time for that! Just plug in the USB Key and let your computer log in to windows automatically!
ASRock App Charger
Simply installing the App Charger driver, it makes your iPhone charge up to 40% faster than before. ASRock App Charger supports continuous charging when your PC enters Standby mode (S1), Suspend to RAM (S3), hibernation mode (S4) or power off (S5). The App Charger technology has been fully applied on ASRock Full series motherboards.
Dampness kills most electronics, so it's a better idea to keep your personal computer dry. Now users may prevent motherboard damages due to dampness by enabling Dehumidifier. When it is enabled, the computer will power on automatically to dehumidify the system after entering S4/S5 state.
Thunderbolt 2 Ready
This motherboard has been certified with an ASUS ThunderboltEX II and is compatible with other third party Thunderbolt devices as well. With the Thunderbolt 2 Add-in-Card, it may support up to six daisy chained Thunderbolt devices at speed up to 20 Gbps.
