SATA Express Connector
Intel Dual LAN
This motherboard comes with two SATA
Express Connectors. The new SATA Express*
interface provides PCIe Gen2 x2 (10Gb/s) data
transfer speed. This motherboard offers the
latest SATA Express connector to enthusiasts to
enjoy the ultimate performance.
Intel Dual Gigabit LAN – The two Intel LAN ports
and Teaming function on this motherboard allow
two single connections to act as one single
connection for twice the transmission
bandwidth.
Intel® Ethernet
* Support to be announced.
15μ Gold Contact in DIMM
& VGA PCIe Slots (PCIE1 & PCIE4)
Unlike other motherboards come with only 3-4µ
gold contact, this motherboard is coated with
15µ gold contact in the DRAM slots and PCIe x16
slots, thus providing better anti-oxidation
protection than usual.
Digi Power
By adopting digital Pulse-width modulation
(PWM), the ASRock motherboard can provide
CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and
smoothly.
12 Power Phase Design
mini-PCIe Slot
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.
The mini-PCIe slot is a convenient peripheral
interface that can be used for connecting WiFi
card.
A-Tuning
HDD Saver Technology
A-Tuning is ASRock's multi purpose software
suite with a new interface, more new features
and improved utilities, including XFast RAM and
a whole lot more.
There's a dedicated 4-pin HDD Saver Connector
placed near the SATA ports. By connecting it to
the HDDs, you can shut down or turn on the
HDDs via software when needed. HDD Saver
Technology secures more privacy, saves more
energy, and extends HDD life.
