Premium Blu-ray Audio
Premium Blu-ray Audio, an outstanding technology developed on ASRock motherboard, provides the excellent
audio output of 24-bit/192 kHz with its respective Blu-ray DRM compatible driver/software. With Content
Protection-Support and High SNR DAC, the Blu-ray entertainments can be played in a high quality of
24-bit/192KHz. In other words, if you are using a device without the Blu-ray Audio support, the audio quality will
be downgraded to 16-bit/48kHz like a regular CD quality. To deliver the best possible sound solution for today’s
most demanding users, ASRock Premium Blu-ray Audio motherboard is the best choice for users who are
particularly desired to enjoy the pure HD audio. ASRock users are able to take full advantages of our Blu-ray
Audio motherboards. Choose ASRock, choose Pure HD audio!

a profile.
Send the “CPU_OC3.8GHz” profile to other friends.
X58 Extreme6
Step 5
Step 6
When the friend receives your “CPU_OC3.8GHz” profile, he can
press “Load” to load the “CPU_OC3.8GHz” profile in OC DNA.
After that, the friend can enter into BIOS OC Tweaker menu to
load the “CPU_OC3.8GHz” profile as his BIOS OC settings.

ErP/EuP Ready Motherboard
ErP/EuP Ready Power Supply
ErP/EuP System
What is ErP/EuP 2.0?
ErP / EuP, stands for Energy Using Product, was a provision regulated by European Union to define the power consumption for the completed
system. According to ErP / EuP, the total AC power of the completed system shall be under 1.00W in off mode condition. To meet ErP / EuP
standard, the ErP / EuP ready motherboard and the ErP / EuP ready power supply are required. (The ErP / EuP ready power supply must meet
the standard of 5v standby power efficiency is higher than 50% under 100 mA current consumption.).
Compared with ErP / EuP, ErP / EuP 2.0 is stricter. Based on ErP / EuP 2.0 standard, the total AC power consumption of the completed system
shall be under 0.5W in off mode in 2013.
ASRock Instant Boot

ASRock Instant Flash
ASRock Instant Flash is an exclusive and the most user-friendly BIOS flash utility
developed by ASRock. It is embedded in Flash ROM which is used to update the
system BIOS without having to enter operating systems like MS-DOS or Windows.
Once executing ASRock Instant Flash, the utility will automatically detect all devices such as USB, hard disk or even floppy drive to
find the exact BIOS for your system. Instead of giving you all BIOS in your devices, the Instant Flash just list BIOS versions that
apply to your motherboard model only. For example, if you have many different BIOS of different motherboards saved in your
devices, but you just need to flash your P45 motherboard, the Instant Flash will just list the P45 BIOS versions for you. This unique
function allows you to easily select the suitable BIOS version instead of browsing through all data.
Instant Flash just list
BIOS versions that
apply to your
motherboard model.
