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 components. DDR3 2450(OC) Dual-Stack MOSFET (DSM) 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.
