Flexible USB 2.0
Besides two front USB 2.0 headers, there’s also an additional 19-pin Flexible USB 2.0 header on the motherboard to support a front USB 3.0 panel with USB 2.0 data rate. Since most computer cases nowadays only have built-in front USB 3.0 panels for 19-pin headers, ASRock has decided to add this Flexible USB 2.0 header so that the two front USB ports will not be wasted.
Two USB 3.0 5Gb/s ports plus 4 SATA3 6Gb/s ports for supporting all of your peripherals with fast data transfer speed.
FM2/FM2+ APU Support
This motherboard is compatible with both AMD FM2 and FM2+ APUs. Please note that some new features may be only supported by FM2+ APUs.
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)
All Solid Capacitor Design
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.
High Density Glass Fabric PCB
What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity or whatever you’d like to name it. And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit. Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
