New Product - 990FX Extreme9
ASRock New UEFI Technology - Faster Boot Speed for Your AMD RAID system
Best Choice for AMD FX-9000 5GHz Rig
ASRock 990FX Extreme9 is one of the best officially AMD certified AM3+ motherboards for building an AMD FX5G desktop. Specifically tailored for enthusiasts in every aspect including its hardware, software and appearances, it is a masterpiece which serious DIY users simply cannot miss!
AMD’s official 5GHz min. system requirement
According to AMD’s suggested hardware requirements, ASRock has built a 5GHz monster and tested its CPU, system and graphics performance. The test results indicate that AMD FX-9590 unleashes its real potential on ASRock 990FX Extreme9!
ASRock’s 5GHZ build for testing
ASRock’s X-Boost Technology is a smart auto-overclocking function and is brilliantly designed to unlock the hidden cores of your CPUs. Simply press "X" when turning on the PC, X-Boost will automatically overclock the relative components to get up to 116% performance boost! With the smart X-Boost, overclocking CPU or unlock CPU cores can become a near one-button process. * The functionality of “Unlock CPU Cores” feature might vary by different processors.
AM3+ 8-Core Processor Support
This board is designed to build up the most powerful system and delivers the most demanding technology for users nowadays. Just enjoy next generation computing with ASRock 8-Core CPU Ready motherboard.
High Density Glass Fabric PCB
What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity or whatever you’d like to name it. And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit. Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
More Precise, More Efficient
Unlike traditional motherboards that use analog power, this motherboard uses a next generation digital PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) design, which provides CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced.
Multiple Filter Cap (MFC)
By combining the power and advantages of three different kinds of capacitors, including the DIP cap, POSCAP and MLCC, Multiple Filter Caps allow hardcore overclockers and enthusiasts to overclock their motherboards to extreme levels without having to worry about the other hardware components.
Advanced 12 + 2 Power Phase
This motherboard is designed with a 12 + 2 Power Phase design. It features sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. Plus, it offers unmatched overclocking capability and enhanced performance with the lowest temperature for advanced gamers as well.
This 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)
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.
Premium Gold Caps
Top-Class Quality Guaranteed
Premium Gold Caps are luxury capacitors. These 100% Japan-made solid capacitors are sleek, high gloss caps with a premium gold coating representing long life and stable performance.
3-Way SLI/3-Way CrossFireX
Equipped with 4 x PCIe 2.0 slots, this motherboard supports NVIDIA® 3-Way SLI and AMD 3-Way CrossFireX, providing ultimate multi-GPU performance.
Intel® Gigabit LAN
Intel® LAN provides the best throughput performance, lower CPU utilization, enhanced stability and is able to deliver ultimate network experience to users!
XFast 555 Technology : XFast RAM / XFast LAN / XFast USB
Fully Optimize Memory Usage
Faster Internet Access
Boosts up your USB speed
5X Faster for Photoshop Execution
XFast RAM will create a virtual disk from the system memory to boost the performance. For Photoshop, It can even perform 5X faster than before.
Lower Latency In Game

Time latency in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm * Lower is better
USB Performance Comparison
ATTO Disk Benchmark 4K Read
*The performance boost percentage may vary with a different configuration.
The unique combo cooler retention module greatly improves heat dissipation and is backward compatible with AMD previous AM3/AM2+ coolers.
8 USB 3.0 (4 Front, 4 Back)
Rich storage options! This motherboard offers 8 USB 3.0 (4 from onboard header, 4 from rear I/O) and bundles an exclusive front USB 3.0 panel to facilitate computing environment.
Hi-Density Power Connector
Hi-Density Power Connector features a solid square-pin design. ASRock motherboard is equipped with High-Density Power Connector for the CPU power connector. The optimized design can reduce 23% power loss and decrease connector temperature up to 22℃.
With ASRock’s exclusive Fast Boot technology, it takes less than 1.5 seconds* to logon to Windows® 8 from a cold boot. No more waiting! The speedy boot will completely change your user experience and behavior.
*The boot time may vary with a different configuration.
Restart to UEFI
Fast Boot is so fast that it is impossible for users to enter the UEFI setup utility during POST. Therefore, ASRock Restart to UEFI technology allows users to easily enter the UEFI setup utility automatically when turning on the PC next time. It is designed for those who constantly need to enter the UEFI setup utility.
Users may prevent motherboard damages due to dampness by enabling “Dehumidifier Function”. When enabling Dehumidifier Function, the computer will power on automatically to dehumidify the system after entering S4/S5 state.
Graphical UEFI – The Revolutionary BIOS Interface
Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is a revolutionary BIOS utility which offers tweak-friendly options in an advanced viewing interface. Compared with traditional BIOS design, the latest UEFI utility provides lots improved functions. The major features of UEFI include: 1. Graphical Visual Experience – UEFI provides an improved visual interface with colorful icons and makes your computing environment more versatile to replace the traditional dull BIOS page. 2. Mouse Enabling – Besides keyboard control, you can freely use mouse to select your ideal settings in UEFI as well. 3. Supports 3TB bootable HDD - UEFI breaks the limitations of 2TB bootable HDD on traditional BIOS. With UEFI, you can enjoy 3TB bootable HDD size.*
*Windows® Vista™ 64bit or Windows® 7 64bit OS is required.
UEFI System Browser
UEFI system browser is a useful tool included in graphical UEFI. It can detect the devices and configurations that users are currently using in their PC. With the UEFI system browser, you can easily examine the current system configuration in UEFI setup.
ASRock OMG (Online Management Guard)
Fast, Easy and Free – ASRock OMG technology allows you to establish an internet curfew or restrict internet access at specified times. Administrators are able to schedule the starting and ending hours of internet access granted to other users. Normally, ISPs (Internet Service Provider) will charge for internet curfew service, which controls “all” the PCs connected at home. However, ASRock OMG is a free tool for controlling internet access of each single PC. Parents can easily control internet access through the BIOS setup to protect their kids from using the Internet at inappropriate times, and meanwhile, enjoy their own internet space.
