WITH POLYCHROME SYNC RGB Enjoy stunning performance and aesthetics that will rule over any other. Utilize the power of ASRock's Polychrome Sync software to control and customize the built-in RGB LEDs on your Taichi motherboard. You can also connect LED light strips for added style, and carry on the colour scheme onto CPU fans, coolers, cases or any other RGB or PolyChrome Sync-certified devices with ease. The Taichi board features both RGB LED Headers (white) and Addressable RGB LED headers. (blue)

Transfer Data at Lightning Speeds


DUAL HYPER M.2 SSD The TRX40 Taichi supports the next generation of PCI Express 4.0 M.2 SSDs. It easily performs at twice the speed of the previous third generation, and so provides you with a super-fast data transferring experience. This motherboard comes with two M.2 SSD slots for all of your storage needs.

Store Anything you Need without Worry


INCLUDED HYPER QUAD M.2 CARD This intuitive motherboard has been bundled with a Hyper Quad M.2 Card which allows you to fit four more M.2 drives into your system. Gaming and PC enthusiasts can never have too much high-speed storage. The card also offers premium cooling to ensure optimal performance.

Fortify your Motherboard

ebr bearing fan

METAL BACKPLATE WITH THERMAL PAD The metal backplate strengthens the motherboard to prevent bending caused by heavy coolers or graphics cards. It also provides better airflow and enhanced stability. The high temperature area on the back of the VRM houses a thermal pad that fits the metal backplate and transfers heat, making the VRM cooler for better performance.

Crafted for the Finest Performance


16 power phase design The ASRock Taichi features sturdy components and offers completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Plus, this impressive motherboard offers unmatched overclocking capabilities and enhanced performance with the lowest temperatures, perfect for advanced gamers.

Designed with Efficiency in Mind

ebr bearing fan

SEPARATED CPU POWER CONNECTOR DESIGN Unlike traditional dual CPU power connectors which are usually located closely together, ASRock separates them to either side of the motherboard in order to create wider trace for CPU VRM. This clever design brings better power delivery, efficiency and lower temperatures, thus improving system stability and increasing overclocking potential.

Get the Greatest Operation for your Components

ebr bearing fan

STEEL SLOT WITH PCI EXPRESS 4.0 The next generation PCI Express 4.0 can perform at twice the speed of the previous third generation. ASRock's exclusive Steel Slot with extra anchor points are added to ensure signal stability and to make sure heavy graphics cards will be securely installed into the PCI-E slot safely.

ASRock TRX40 Taichi Motherboard Features


XXL Aluminium Alloy HeatsinkExtra 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 90A Power ChokeCompared to traditional chokes, ASRock’s premium 90A power chokes effectively make the saturation current up to three times better.


Premium Memory Alloy ChokeSpecifically designed for memory power delivery, these new alloy chokes feature a highly magnetic and heat resistant design, thus delivering more stable and reliable power to the motherboard and memory modules.


Combo CapsA combination of 820uF and 100uF capacitors. Together these capacitors provide clearer, efficient and more responsive CPU Vcore power, and overclockers may achieve higher scores.


Nichicon 12K Black CapsSupreme 12K black capacitors consist of at least 12,000 hour lifespans. Compared to other high-end motherboards that merely have lifespans of around 10,000 hours.


8 Layer PCBThe 8 Layer PCB comes with 4 sets of 2 ounce copper inner layers, providing stable signal traces and power shapes and delivering lower temperature and higher energy efficiency for overclocking!


Matte Black PCBA new mysterious matte black and copper color scheme to match the prestigious components on ASRock's high-end motherboards.


High Density Glass Fabric PCBHigh Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts.


2oz Copper PCBUsing only carefully selected copper materials for PCB layers, 2oz Copper PCB delivers lower temperature and higher energy efficiency for overclocking.

ASRock TRX40 Taichi, AMD TRX40, sTRX4, DDR4, PCIe 4.0, 2x M.2, SLI/CrossFire, 2.5GbE, USB 3.2 Gen2 A+C, ATX is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pcie to m2 card doesn't actually work So I get 6 Gbps read on a raid 0 array with 4 Seagate firecude 520 1tb m2s. 17gbps write. Which is nice. Apparently it's a known issue but no one in support knows how to fix

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Scan sent a used item and the board is flawed. Wish I bought on Amazon as I would get a refund. Scan won't even entertain it. They sent a used/customer returned board to me. Open package, missing CPU covers etc.There's absolutely no doubt it wasn't new. I work away from home so have had less time than usual to jump on this. As for the board, despite the specs seemingly lining up...the board is dumb. If you use the top PCIe slot for the GPU you won't get a 280 TDP sized cooling solution like the Thermalright SilverArrow TR4 to fit. You need it as it idles too warm on 250 TDP cooler. It's a Gen 3 Threadripper F F S! Move the GPU to the second slot and you cover the fan that cools the SB and both NVME cards you'll likely have in. They jump 10° in temps!!!!! Also you've now lost the bottom PCIe slot! All 3 slots run at 16x unlike some other pricier boards. But what's the point! For the's made cheap as you can get. You should see the finishing on some of the aluminium covers. Like counter sunk holes that look whittled and not drilled! Scan treat me like a mug after spending nearly £3K and ASRock treat me like a mug with this mess of a board. Absolutely livid.
