Quicklinx: C37RWS00 Mfr#: FM2A88X PRO+


This motherboard is compatible with AMD FM2+ APUs. ASRock is determined to use high quality materials to build the best motherboards, that's why all the capacitors on this motherboard are built with 100% solid capacitors. These solid capacitors bring long lasting durability and ultra stable performance. This ASRock motherboard supports PCI-E 3.0! PCI Express 3.0 can maximize the bandwidth of the PCI Express 3.0 VGA cards, thus providing ultimate graphics performance. Brilliantly designed for smart overclocking, ASRock X-Boost technology is able to unleash the hidden power of your CPUs. Simply press "X" when turning on the PC, X-Boost will automatically overclock the relative components to get up to 15.77% performance boost! With the smart X-Boost, overclocking CPU can become a near one-button process. Configure different fan speeds for respective temperatures using the graph. The fans will automatically shift to the next speed level when the assigned temperature is met.
