M.2 Socket (PCIe Gen2 x2/SATA)
ASRock’s motherboard is the world’s first and only motherboard that implements a Gen2 x2 M.2 socket. The onboard M.2 socket is a new interface for connecting Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) solid state drives or other devices with a smaller and more flexible physical specification, together with more advanced features.

Each M.2 card is identical in width (22 mm) and thickness (approximately 3 mm), they differ only in length. ASRock’s M.2 motherboard supports all 42 mm, 60 mm, 80 mm and 110 mm versions, offering flexible options to satisfy users’ various needs.

ASRock’s motherboard supports M.2 SATA3 6.0 Gb/s modules and M.2 PCI Express modules up to Gen2 x2 10 Gb/s, which is 2X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x1 solutions that are limited to 5 Gb/s. It pushes your NGFF SSDs to their limits while reducing tons of load time and boosting overall performance.

Based on stringent CrystalDiskMark read tests conducted by our engineers, we have proved that with the new M.2 SSDs our PCIe M.2 interface is 3X faster than the SATA M.2 interface!

Digi Power: More Precise, More Efficient
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.

8+2 Power Phase
This motherboard is designed with a 8 + 2 Power Phase design. It features sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Plus, it offers unmatched overclocking capability and enhanced performance with the lowest temperature for advanced gamers as well.

Premium Gold Caps
This motherboard uses Premium Gold Caps that are 100% made in Japan. These solid capacitors are sleek, high gloss caps with a premium gold coating that represents its long lasting durability and ultra stable performance.

ASRock APP Shop
ASRock APP Shop is designed for your convenience. We provide various apps and support software for users to download. You can easily optimize your system and keep your motherboard up to date with ASRock APP Shop.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased with purchase and subsequent setup. Having opted for the AMD route of upgrade I viewed many mobo's trying to find one that had the right set of features. I finally plumped for this board many for the M.2 socket and 3.1 usb connectivity. My setup was as follows: ASRock 990fx Killer 3.1 AMD 9590FX 4.7Ghz 32Gb HyperX 1866mhz Ram 500Gb Samsung evo 850 SSD Fractal Design Define R5 Case 600w PSU Corsair H110i GT CLC cooler Old GPU card (Radeon HD 2600 XT) will be upgrading to Radeon R9 Nitro 390 8192MB GDDR5 on next payday!! Extra storage will be added as and when needed Win 10 pro I had no real issues during build, one minor issue is the system defaults RAM to 1600mhz and becomes unstable at 1866mhz I suspect the performance difference is miniscule so not going to loose any sleep over it!!! The Corsair software (downloaded) also fails to recognise the H110i GT on first boot but the issue resolves follow a restart, which by the way is lightening fast. It's hard to really evaluate a motherboard as there are so many factors involving the other components, driversand software. That being said I am more than happy to recommend this board to others. The build and setup was flawless, everything worked and was recognised, Bios easy to navigate and fairly well laid out. A couple of cons: Only 2x USB 2.0 headers on the board. NZXT do a USB header expansion card for just over a tenner so no biggy. Has a molex power socket at bottom of board which if your PSU is at the bottom of the case they almost touch each other rendering the molex socket unusable, I wasn't in need of using this socket anyway and this is not necessary a mobo issue as could just be this particular case lack a inch or so in height!! All in all very pleased . 11 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good board. Have to say I was very unsure about buying this board. But I've had no one bit of trouble installing it the drivers where easy to install. Asrock web site was easy to navigate . If ur looking for cheap motherboard this model is a must buy. 19 July 2015

Having looked at the ASRock website they have scant info regarding RAM support list, in fact the info looks dated as the info only lists memory up to 16GB. The specs say motherboard can support up to 64GB and Supports DDR3 up to 2450(OC).

Can you recommend a 32gb set of memory please of up to 2400mhz

USB 3.1 - Type C

Your ad indicates this MB has USB 3.1 and Type C connectors.

On the ASRock web site there is no mention of either in the Description or in the user manuals.

So does it have USB 3.1 - Type C connector/s
