Super Alloy Motherboard
• XXL Aluminium Alloy Heatsink: Extra-large aluminium alloy heat sinks that effectively take away heat from the MOSFET and chipset so that your whole system may perform more stable.
• Premium 65A Power Choke: Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock’s premium 65A power chokes effectively make the saturation current up to three times better, thus providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.
• Dr. MOS: Dr. MOS design features the latest SPS (Smart Power Stage) technology. It’s optimized for monitoring current and temperature of each phase, thus delivering smoother and neater power to the CPU with enhanced performance and OC capability.
• Nichicon 12K Black Caps: 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.
• Matte Black PCB: A new mysterious matte black and copper color scheme to match the prestigious components on ASRock's high-end motherboards.
• High Density Glass Fabric PCB: High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.

Get the most convenient BIOS flashing with just a simple click. Users can easily achieve the latest BIOS support with a USB and power supply, No CPU, RAM or other components required.
Dual USB 3.1 Gen2 (Type-A + Type-C)
The newer and more power efficient ASM3142 USB 3.1 Gen2 controller not only delivers up to 10 Gbps data transfer rates but also supports "Multiple Ins" architecture, it is able to maintain fast and stable speed while transferring data from two USB storage devices at the same time without bogging down by their speed difference.
Front USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C 36W Power Delivery
Front USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C header supports new USB power delivery protocol to supply up to 12V/3A of power output, allowing you to charge portable devices faster than ever!
Hyper BCLK Engine III
An additional external base clock generator that supports PCIe frequency overclocking. It provides a wider range of frequencies and more precise clock waveforms, allowing any user to get most from their CPU investment with precise, stable overclocking.
Virtual RAID On CPU (VROC) is the latest technology that allows you to build RAID with PCIe Lanes coming from the CPU. With VROC, users can setup RAID 0 to speed up the system with ease, not only that, an optional Upgrade Module is also available to open up more RAID options such as 1, 5 and 10.
*Only Intel SSDs can support VROC
