15μ Gold Contact in DIMM
& VGA PCIe Slot (PCIE2)
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
slot, thus providing better anti-oxidation
protection than usual.

SATA Express Connector
4 Graphics Outputs
The 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.
Never run out of graphics outputs! This
motherboard supports all four kinds of graphics
D-Sub, DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort.
* Support to be announced.
HDD Saver Technology
Digi Power
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.
By adopting digital Pulse-width modulation
(PWM), the ASRock motherboard can
provide CPU Vcore voltage more
efficiently and smoothly.
