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.
Intel® Smart Response
Intel® Smart Response Technology accelerates the system response experience by putting frequently-used blocks of disk data on a solid-state drive (SSD), providing dramatically faster access to user data than the hard disk alone can provide. For users who are tempted to connect the SSD and HDD on ASRock motherboard, Intel® Smart Response Technology can make the SSD become the "Cache of the HDD" to boost up the HDD access speed. ASRock motherboards with Intel® Smart Response Technology are able to drive 4X faster performance boost than a HDD-only system.
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.
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.
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.
24 + 2 Power Phase Design
This motherboard is designed with a 24 + 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.

Raw bit rate
Bandwidth per lane per direction
Note: PCI-E 3.0 requires both a supporting CPU and motherboard at the same time. Currently Intel® Socket 2011 Sandy Bridge-E Processor doesn’t support PCI-E 3.0, but this motherboard is already PCI-E 3.0 hardware ready. It depends on Intel® CPU to enable PCI-E 3.0. Please check Intel® website for information on future CPU updates and releases.
