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.
12+2 Power Phase
The 12+2 Power Phase features sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. It offers unmatched overclocking capability and enhanced performance with the lowest temperatures for PC gaming enthusiasts.
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.
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.
HyperDuo Plus Technology
Gain 14X Faster Performance!
Equipped with Marvell SE9230 controller, the motherboard supports HyperDuo Plus™ Technology. While the SSD and HDD are connected, HyperDuo Plus™ makes the SSD become the cache of the HDD and delivers SSD-like performance.
Creative Sound Core3D Audio with Premium Headset Amplifier
The onboard Creative SoundCore 3D quad-core sound and voice processor brings a truly immersive audio experience and supports CrystalVoice, EAX 1.0 to 5.0, etc. ASRock Premium Headset Amplifier (PHA) provides wider bandwidth, higher slew rate with lower noise and distortion. It also supports up to 250 Ohm high-end headsets, which delivers crisper audio into the users ears.
Hear the enemy before they hear you
Scout Mode™ technology is a proprietary technology that allows you to hear your enemies from further away, giving you a distinct tactical advantage in combat.
Fatal1ty Mouse Port
Fatal1ty Mouse Port is a customizable technology for PC gamers that is a part of F-Stream. After plugging the USB mouse into the Fatal1ty Mouse Port and running F-Stream, gamers can use Fatal1ty’s personal preferred mouse polling rate at 500 Hz. F-Stream also provides the flexibility for gamers to adjust the mouse polling rate from 125 Hz to 1000 Hz. This is helpful for professional gamers to experience smoother game play and faster response time to the mouse.
Limitation: 1. Some USB mice may not support 1000 Hz mouse polling rate. 2. The Fatal1ty mouse port does not support USB 2.0 mouse. 3. The Fatal1ty mouse port may not support some wireless USB mice. 4. The Fatal1ty mouse port does not support the USB mouse which is connected to the USB hub.
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.
8 x DDR3 2500+ DIMM Supports Quad Channel Memory
This motherboard has 8 DIMM slots for Quad-Channel memory, supporting for 2500+(OC) MHz DDR3 memory!
V-Probe™ is a 7-set of detection points laid on this motherboard. It allows overclockers to easily and quickly get the accurate voltage readings via the multitester.
PCI-E 3.0 x16 Slots – Support 4-Way SLI, 4-Way CrossFireX
PCI Express 3.0 slots maximize the bandwidth for the next-gen PCI Express 3.0 VGA cards and provide ultimate graphics performance. The Fatal1ty X79 Champion comes with 5 PCI-E 3.0 slots supporting NVIDIA® 4-Way SLI and AMD 4-Way CrossFireX.
12 USB 3.0 (4 Front, 8 Back) + 6 SATA3
Rich storage options! This motherboard offers 12 USB 3.0 (4 from onboard headers, 8 from rear I/O) and 6 SATA3 connectors to satisfy PC DIYer's various needs.
Fatal1ty F-Stream – The All-in-1 Tuning Software
The Fatal1ty F-Stream tuning program is an all-in-1 software utility that supports overclocking and hard-ware tuning such as energy usage, H/W monitor, fan speed control, Fatal1ty Mouse Port Configuration and XFast RAM. In Hardware Monitor, it shows the major readings of your system. In Fan Control, it shows the fan speed and temperature for you to adjust. In Overclocking, you are allowed to adjust the CPU frequency, ratio and some voltages for optimal system performance. In Mouse Polling, gamers can freely adjust the mouse polling rate. In Energy Saving, the voltage regulator can reduce the number of output phases to improve efficiency when the CPU cores are idle without sacrificing computing performance. In XFast RAM, it fully utilizes the memory space that cannot be used under Windows® OS 32-bit CPU.
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.
Post Status Checker (PSC)
Post Status Checker (PSC) diagnoses the computer when users power on the machine. It emits a red light to indicate whether the CPU, memory, VGA or storage is dysfunctional. The lights go off if the four mentioned above are functioning normally.
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.
Updating the UEFI is easier than ever with ASRock Internet Flash! Simply by a few clicks it searches for available UEFI firmware updates from ASRock's servers, then it automatically downloads and flashes the latest UEFI file within the UEFI setup utility without having to enter Windows® OS.
Broadcom Dual LAN
Dual LAN with Teaming function enabled on this motherboard allows two single connections to act as one single connection for twice the transmission bandwidth, making data transmission more effective.
