Digi Power: More Precise, More Efficient

By adopting digital pulse-width modulation (PWM), the ASRock motherboard can provide CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly. Compared to analog PWM, digital PWM can optimize the CPU power solution and provide a proper and stable Vcore for the processor.

Next-Gen PCI-E 3.0 Support

The ASRock motherboards support the Next-Gen PCI-E 3.0! PCI Express 3.0 can maximize the bandwidth for the next-gen PCI Express 3.0 VGA cards, provide ultimate graphics performance.

  • Higher bit rate - 8.0GT/s
  • Higher bandwidth per lane - 1GB/s
  • Higher efficiency - 98.5% encoding efficiency
  • 100% backward compatible with previous PCI-E 2.0 / 1.0 standard

FAN: The Smart Cooling Design

Greater air flow, faster heat dissipation! ASRock X-FAN allows the motherboard to breathe smoothly. It will be automatically activated only when the system rises to a certain temperature under heavy-loading. Normally, ASRock X-FAN will remain deactivated to give users the quietest computing experience.

4* Awesome Mother board
Reviewed by Chris on 15/02/2013
Love the mother board just what I need for my M-ATX case WARNING!!!! As soon as you get this mother board check the BIOS number as mine came with v1.10 and there now at 2.70 and because it was an old BIOS it did not recognise a USB mouse or the NEW i7's and it some times did not boot and gave an AF error on the board and according to the instruction book it means "exiting startup" all you need to do is download the new BIOS from this: Put it on a USB and you are all good :D WARNING!!!!
4* AsRock Extreme4-M X79
Reviewed by Jack Leigh on 10/05/2013
Brilliant motherboard, very easy to install and came with everything you need. One problem however. I have just built a PC with this motherboard and an i7-3280 and upon booting for the first time received an AF Error code. This is an outdated BIOS chip error and will only give you a black screen. All you have to do is phone AsRock and they will send you out an updated BIOS chip at no extra charge. ASRock EUROPE B.V. Phone: +31-24-345-44-33 ASRock America, Inc. Phone: +1-909-590-8308 Remember to replace the + with 00 if phoning from the UK. Even with this slight technical hitch it's still worth the cash. Just remember to phone them ASAP if you're planning a build with an i7-3280.PS: I phoned AMERICA to find this out.
