Description

Who says high quality audio is only available on high-end motherboards? ASRock applied ELNA audio capacitors on mainstream and entry-level motherboards! Compared with traditional solid caps, the leakage current of ELNA audio caps is merely 3uA. This is the key to reduce noise level significantly and satisfy even the pickiest audiophiles. Unlike traditional motherboards that use analog power, this motherboard uses a next generation digital PWM design, which provides CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced.

ASRock has High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity. I/O armor A designed protective cover for all of the crucial parts near the motherboard's rear I/O, so that they won't easily be damaged by static electricity. Supports the DDR3 memory modules and most extreme memory performance.
