ASRock’s X-Boost Technology is a smart
auto-overclocking function and is brilliantly
designed to unlock the hidden cores of your
CPUs. Simply press “X” when turning on the
PC, X-Boost will automatically overclock the
relative components to get up to 116%
performance boost! With the smart X-Boost,
overclocking CPU or unlock CPU cores can
become a near one-button process.
* The functionality of “Unlock CPU Cores” feature might vary by
different processors.
AM3+ 8-Core

Digi Power
Multiple Filter Cap (MFC)
By adopting digital Pulse-width
modulation (PWM), the ASRock
motherboard can provide CPU Vcore
voltage more efficiently and smoothly.
The ASRock MFC includes a combination of highly conductive MLCC, DIP cap and POSCAP.
It helps the system filter noise from high-freq, mid-freq to low-freq noise, delivering enhanced
and higher current to the CPU. With the combined power of three capacitors, MFC allows
users to overclock their PC rig to extreme levels without worrying about the hardware
DDR3 2450(OC)
Dual-Stack MOSFET
ASRock 990FX Extreme9 motherboard
unlocks maximum memory
performance,coming with 4 DIMM slots
for dual-channel memory, supporting up
to DDR3 2450(OC) MHz!
Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM) is an innovative
new design of MOSFETs. The silicon die area is
increased by stacking two dies into a MOSFET.
The larger the die area, the lower Rds(on).
Compared to traditional discrete MOSFET,
DSM can provide larger die area and lower
Rds(on), so the power supply for CPU Vcore is
more efficient.
Premium Gold Caps
Premium Gold Caps are 100% made in
Japan; these solid capacitors are sleek, high
gloss caps with a premium gold coating
representing long life and stable

UEFI System
Users may prevent motherboard damages due
to dampness by enabling “Dehumidifier
Function”. When enabling Dehumidifier
Function, the computer will power on
automatically to dehumidify the system after
entering S4/S5 state.
The UEFI system browser allows you to
easily check your current system
configuration in UEFI setup.
