Unbeatable Heatsink Armor, forged with aluminium alloy heatsink top cover that effectively improves heat dissipation. Underneath its solid strong cover lie two gaming required M.2 Key M sockets for high speed SSDs. Dual M.2 Sockets for SSD, the Hyper M.2 socket that supports PCIe Gen4 x4 while M.2 socket is capable of running PCIe Gen3 x2 and SATA3 mode. Whether you are using headphones, a headset, external or internal speakers, via USB, Wi-Fi, analog output or even HDMI, Nahimic Audio offers you the most engaging listening experience, vibrant and rich with details. Dr.MOS is the integrated power stage solution which is optimized for synchronous buck-set down voltage applications. Compared to traditional discrete MOSFETs, it intelligently delivers higher current for each phase, thus providing improved thermal result and superior performance. Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock's premium 60A power chokes effectively make the saturation current up to three times better, thus providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard. 14 Power Phase Design featuring 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. Hi-Density Power Connector reduces 23% power loss and decreases the connector's temperature by 22 degrees Celsius. It comes with a 8+4 12V Power Connectors and 24-pin ATX Power Connector. Using only carefully selected copper materials for PCB layers, 2oz Copper PCB delivers lower temperature and higher energy efficiency for overclocking. ASRock motherboards deliver stunning performance and superior aesthetics to rule your own colourful lighting way. ASRock offers a very comprehensive control to perform the built-in RGB LEDs or the connected LED strips, CPU fans, coolers, chassis and any RGB devices smoothly. Devices can be synchronized across the Polychrome RGB Sync-certified accessories as well. The intelligent 2.5Gb/s LAN platform is built for maximum networking performance for the demanding requirements of home networking, content creators, online gamers and high-quality streaming media. Boost networking performance up to 2.5X the bandwidth compared to the standard gigabit Ethernet. Besides the onboard LAN port, users may also choose 802.11ac wireless connections by M.2 (Key E) slot. The reinforced steel slot comes with the next generation PCI Express 4.0 standard and is packed with a solid cover that prevent any signal interference with graphics cards. It also ensures the heavy graphics cards to be well-installed in the PCI-E slot safely. The front USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C header delivers up to 5 Gbps data transfer rate and next generation reversible USB design to the front panel of computer case. This motherboard has a pair of onboard Type-A and Type-C USB 3.2 Gen2 ports built on the rear I/O for supporting next generation USB 3.2 Gen2 devices and to deliver up to 10 Gbps data transfer rates. Unlike most so called pre-mounted I/O shield that is only decorated with fancy colour schemes. We reserve more tolerance space and allow IO shield is adjustable when installing, thus fitting chassis perfectly without any mechanical issue. Complete with two types of most used connectors. Packed with a HDMI + DisplayPort combo, you have more graphics output options now.
