Sound Tracker

The Sound Tracker is a visual indicator that points out the directions from which predominant sounds are coming. Each sound is properly positioned in 360° on a radar for a full immersion during the game.


Dr. MOS

Dr.MOS is the integrated power stage solution which is optimized for synchronous buck-set down voltage applications! Compared to traditional discrete MOSFETs, it intelligently delivers higher current for each phase, thus providing improved thermal result and superior performance.


Premium 60A Power Choke

Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock’s premium 60A power chokes effectively make the saturation current up to three times better, thus providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.


16 Power Phase Design

Featuring 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.


Hi-Density Power Connector

Reduces 23% power loss and decreases the connector’s temperature by 22 degrees Celsius. 8+8 12V Power Connectors and 24-pin ATX Power Connector.


2oz Copper PCB

2 ounce copper inner layers that provide stable signal traces and power shapes! Delivering lower temperature and higher energy efficiency for overclocking, it’s able to support the latest DDR4 memory modules with most extreme memory performance.


Rule Your Own Lighting Way - Polychrome RGB

ASRock motherboards deliver stunning performance and superior aesthetics to rule your own colourful lighting way! ASRock offers a very comprehensive control to perform the built-in RGB LEDs or the connected LED strips, CPU fans, coolers, chassis and any RGB devices smoothly. Devices can be synchronized across the Polychrome RGB Sync-certified accessories as well.


Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax

Welcome to the new Wi-Fi standard! ASRock’s motherboard equipped with next generation Intel® Wi-Fi 6 802.11ax adapter. The speed will be working up to 2.4Gbps and it will also natively operate with both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz simultaneously. Significant improvement in bi-directional MU-MIMO support is another attractive feature as well.


Intel® 2.5G LAN

The 2.5G Ethernet configuration were introduced to support higher bandwidth on widely deployed CAT5e and CAT6 cabling in enterprise and metro area networks. The industry's leading Intel® LAN always provides the best throughput performance, lower CPU utilization, enhanced stability and is able to deliver ultimate network experience to users!


Reinforced Steel Slot [PCIe 4.0 Version]

The reinforced steel slot comes with the next generation PCI Express 4.0 standard. The various benefits include:
• Extra anchor points.
• Stronger latch.
• Ensure signal stability.
• Make sure heavy graphics cards to be well-installed.


Front USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C

Front USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C header delivers up to 10Gbps data transfer rate and next generation reversible USB design to the front panel of computer case.


Dual USB 3.2 Gen2 (Type-A + Type-C)

This motherboard has a pair of onboard Type-A and Type-C USB 3.2 Gen2 ports built on the rear i/o for supporting next generation USB 3.2 Gen2 devices and to deliver up to 10 Gbps data transfer rates.


Flexible Integrated I/O Shield

Unlike most so called pre-mounted I/O shield that is only decorated with fancy color schemes. We reserve more tolerance space and allow IO shield is adjustable when installing, thus fitting chassis perfectly without any mechanical issue.


HDMI 4k @60Hz

Supports the most recent HDMI 4K 60Hz graphics output specification. With the larger bandwidth and increased frame rate, the motion on your screen becomes more fluid and less blurry.


XXL Aluminium Alloy Heatsink
