There are just two USB ports on the rear panel — not much for these days. So you shouldn’t use it with modules requiring increased voltage modules for overclockers , especially as it makes no sense – the motherboard is not good at overclocking. CrossFire has already become no less popular than SLI. It should be noted that the cables may not be included into the bundle we had no such cables in our bundle , they are mentioned as optional components in the manual. The motherboard does not allow to increase CPU voltage. If you get a chance to visit Computex exhibition, do not forget to experience the new wonder from ASRock by yourself.

Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Aerock chipset does not grow very hot. Products News Support Where to Buy.

Keep in mind that motherboard drivers may also be damaged for various reasons, such as virus-infected, or obsolete as a result of system upgrades or software changes. Information published on ASRock. In practice, we are to find out whether CPU overclocking will be limited by a motherboard as well as to evaluate its behavior in non-standard modes, including automatic restoration of a asrockk frequency after a failed overclocking attempt, etc.


To all appearances, this mode significantly increases all latencies. As usual, we recommend that you should not neglect this opportunity, especially if you are an overclocker.

Dynamic range, dB A: After visiting Cebit this March, what do you expect next? But on the other hand, the bundle has a bracket for another two ports, and the total number of ports supported by the motherboard reaches 10 owing to SB Southbridge.

Noise level, dB A: Most of ASRock products come with Premium version. Computex is definitely the next event you can think of. But as the motherboard would stubbornly set our memory to DDR, increasing memory frequency to DDR yielded better results.

We use all features of the motherboard in this test, including raising CPU voltage and adjusting multipliers and frequencies of system and peripheral buses, if necessary but if, for example, reducing Hyper-Transport frequency does not improve overclocking, we leave the default multiplier. Overclocking In order to evaluate the motherboard and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed processor to a maximum stable level.

As an important motherboard company from Taiwan, ASRock definitely has an obvious appearance at Computex There are more chances that you will decide am2sli-esata2 add a much cheaper second video card identical to what you already have in your system than that you will use all 6—8 SATA ports and a couple of gigabit network adapters, typical of expensive motherboards.


Come to visit ASRock, you will find the trip worth it!. Computex can be considered one of the must-see events in Taiwan for foreign buyers, high-end am2li-esata2 and even for general computer-savvy consumers.

As far as the temperature remains below the threshold, the cooler runs at a constant speed high, average, or minimal, depending on the target frequency.

It’s a balanced choice for an inexpensive motherboard. Taiwan is famous for its IT design and manufacturing capability. The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: However, this reasoning is spoilt by the fact that there are much fewer inexpensive motherboards for Socket AM2 supporting CrossFire than models for SLI. You can see device drivers for a ASRock Motherboards below on this page. Computex is definitely the next event ,an can think of. Asrick overclocking potential is an individual property of a given motherboard sample to some degree, we don’t set the task to determine overclocking potential to within a single MHz.
