This motherboard is equipped with 10 SATA3 connectors by Intel® X99, plus 8 additional SAS3/SATA3 connectors by an LSI SAS 3008 controller, which sums up to a total of 18 SATA3 ports that can reach an unearthly 6.1GB/s transfer speed!
4-Way SLI & CrossFireX Supported by Two PLX PEX 8747 Bridge Chips
PLX PEX 8747 is a PCIe Gen3 bridge chip that offers solid PCIe 3.0 lanes for PCIe devices and is optimized to support high performance graphics. Via the two PLX PEX 8747 bridge chips onboard, this motherboard is able to support 4-Way SLI or 4-Way CrossFireX at PCIe Gen3 x16/x16/x16/x16 mode with four graphics cards.
Dual Ultra M.2 - The World’s Fastest M.2 Socket - PCIe Gen3 x4 & SATA3
The two onboard M.2 sockets are a new interface for connecting Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) SSDs or other devices. ASRock is the fi¬rst in the world to implement PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 socket on motherboards. The Ultra M.2 interface pushes the speed of M.2 modules up to 32Gb/s, which is 3X faster compared to other M.2 Gen2 x2 solutions that are limited to 10Gb/s. Furthermore, this motherboard is capable of powering two M.2 x4 SSD devices simultaneously at 2.8GB/s!
12 Power Phase Design
Designed with a 12 Power Phase design, this motherboard features sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Plus, it offers unmatched overclocking capabilities and enhanced performance with the lowest temperature for advanced gamers as well.
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.
Premium 60A Power Choke
Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock’s new-gen premium power chokes effectively increase up to 3 times better saturation current, providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.
Premium Memory Alloy Choke
Specially designed for memory power delivery, the new-gen alloy chokes feature a highly magnetic and heat resistant design, thus delivering more stable and reliable power to the motherboard.
Ultra Dual-N MOSFET for Memory Power
Combining two silicon dies into one MOSFET, Ultra Dual-N MOSFET provides larger die area and lower Rds(on), so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient.
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.
Sapphire Black PCB
Pure black PCB appearance. The new Sapphire Black PCB represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch.
Supports DDR4 ECC / RDIMM Memory Modules
This motherboard is capable of supporting DDR4 ECC and RDIMM (Registered DIMM) memory modules which deliver server-grade performance and durability for high-powered computing systems.
*ECC is supported with Intel® Xeon® processors.
128GB Memory Support
Designed to meet the maximum computing power system, this motherboard adopts Quad-Channel 8 DDR4 DIMM slots. Each slot supports 16GB memory module, thus delivering a maximum capacity up to 128GB.
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.
Intel® Dual Gigabit LAN
Users are able to connect two LAN cables to this motherboard's rear i/o. Dual LAN with Teaming function enabled on this motherboard allows two single connections to act as one single connection for twice the transmission bandwidth, making data transmission more effective.

Date Issued: 29th Aug 2014
New processors usually grab all the release limelight, relegating the supporting core logic and memory to mere footnotes. This time, a brand-new chipset and DDR4 memory are equal partners in the platform.
Date Issued: 29th Aug 2014
Intel's X99 is a long-overdue platform upgrade for the high-end consumer market. Despite delivering an incremental CPU upgrade from Sandy Bridge-E to Ivy Bridge-E, Intel determined the supporting X79 motherboard needed no such upgrade.
