Some sensitive digital components on the motherboard are vulnerable to power surges, the excessive current may cause your system to malfunction immediately. ASRock Full Spike Protection includes various technologies to prevent your motherboard’s components from being damaged by these unexpected voltage spikes.
 
Surge Protection

Protects the motherboard from excessive surges from the power supply unit.

Lightning Protection

The onboard LAN chip is protected against sudden and violent voltage spikes caused by lightning.
 
ESD Protection

USB : Added ICs to protect the onboard USB ports from electrostatic discharges.

LAN : Prevents the onboard LAN from being damaged by electrostatic discharges.

MOSFETs : MOSFETs in critical areas use a special design for protecting them from electrostatic discharge during the installation process.
 
 
X-Boost
 
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.
 
 
 
Next-Gen PCIe 3.0
 
This motherboard supports the next-gen PCIe 3.0! Compared to PCIe 2.0, PCIe 3.0 offers up to 2X data transferring bandwidth for VGA cards, thus providing ultimate graphics performance. (Available only with AMD FM2+ CPUs)
 
Get PCIe 3.0 Benefits

Higher bit rate - 8.0GT/s
Higher bandwidth per lane - 1GB/s
Higher efficiency - 98.5% encoding efficiency
100% backward compatible with previous PCIe 2.0 / 1.0 standard
 
PCIe architecture Raw bit rate Bandwidth per lane per direction Encoding Efficiency
PCIe 2.0 5.0GT/s 500MB/s 80%

A-Tuning

A-Tuning is ASRock's multi purpose software suite with a new interface, more new features and improved utilities, including XFast RAM and a whole lot more.
 
 
 
USB Key
 
In a world where time is money, why waste precious time everyday typing usernames to log in to Windows? Why should we even bother memorizing those foot long passwords? Nobody has time for that! Just plug in the USB Key and let your computer log in to windows automatically!
 
 
 
Restart to UEFI
 
Fast Boot is so fast that it is impossible for users to enter the UEFI setup utility during POST. Therefore, ASRock Restart to UEFI technology allows users to easily enter the UEFI setup utility automatically when turning on the PC next time. It is designed for those who constantly need to enter the UEFI setup utility.
 
 
ASRock OMG (Online Management Guard)
 
Limit and control your children's time spent on the internet. ASRock OMG (Online Management Guard) technology allows you to establish an internet curfew or restrict internet access at specified times. Administrators are able to schedule the starting and ending hours of internet access granted to other users.
 
 
 
UEFI Tech Service
 
Contact ASRock Tech Service by sending a support request from the UEFI setup utility if you are having trouble with your personal computer. Users may try to choose the category of the issue they have encountered, describe the problem in detail, and then attach an optional picture or log file for our technical support team.
 
 
 
Dehumidifier
 
Dampness kills most electronics, so it's a better idea to keep your personal computer dry. Now users may prevent motherboard damages due to dampness by enabling Dehumidifier. When it is enabled, the computer will power on automatically to dehumidify the system after entering S4/S5 state.
 
 
 
Easy Driver Installer
 
For users that don’t have an optical disk drive to install the drivers from our support CD, Easy Driver Installer is a handy tool in the UEFI that installs the LAN driver to your system via an USB storage device, then downloads and installs the other required drivers automatically through the internet. Completely no CD or optical disk drive required!
 
 
ASRock XFast RAM fully utilizes the memory space that cannot be used under Windows® 32-bit operating systems. It shortens the loading time of previously visited websites, making web surfing faster than ever. And it also boosts the speed of Adobe Photoshop 5 times faster. Another advantage of ASRock XFast RAM is that it reduces the frequency of accessing your SSDs or HDDs in order to extend their lifespan.
 
 
 
When Internet Explorer loads very slowly for no clear reason, it's usually due to inefficient management. ASRock is rolling out super efficient web management in the motherboard industry. XFast LAN is a convenient tool that controls internet related applications easily and efficiently. Creating a perfect Internet environment, all you need is a smart manager. ASRock XFast LAN allows you to enjoy more speed, easier multitasking, enhanced multimedia experience, and more – all without weighing you down.
 
 
 
This motherboard supports HDMI™ (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) which is an interface standard for transferring uncompressed video data and delivering multi-channel audio through a single cable. Both video and audio data signals transferred through the HDMI™ interface are digital without being converted into analog, therefore it delivers the richest pictures and the most realistic sounds.
