Premium 60A Power Choke Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock’s premium 60A power chokes effectively make the saturation current up to three times better, thus providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard. Dual-Stack Mosfet for CPU Power Dual-Stack Mosfet (Dsm) is another innovative MOSFETs design by ASRock. The silicon die area is increased by stacking two dies into one Mosfet. The larger the die area, the lower Rds(on). Compared to traditional discrete Mosfet, DSM with larger die area provides extreme lower Rds(on) 1.2 m?, so the power supply for the CPU Vcore is more efficient. 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. Ddr4 Non-Z OC Overclocking Ddr4 memory modules is no longer limited to Z170 models. With ASRock’s Ddr4 Non-Z OC users may overclock the memory of H170/q170/b150/h110/c232 models using certain memory sticks, such as Kingston or Samsung memory DIMMs. The enhanced CAS latency brings up to 5% performance boost. Uefi EZ Mode EZ mode is a dashboard which contains multiple readings of the system’s current status. You can check the most crucial information of your system, such as CPU speed, Dram frequency, Sata information, fan speed, etc. Intel® LAN Intel® LAN provides the best throughput performance, lower CPU utilization, enhanced stability and is able to deliver ultimate network experience to users! Supports Ddr4 2133 Supports the latest Ddr4 memory modules and most extreme memory performance! Elna Audio Caps Who says high quality audio is only available on high-end motherboards? ASRock applied Elna audio capacitors on mainstream and entry-level motherboards! Compared with traditional solid caps, the leakage current of Elna audio caps is merely 3uA. This is the key to reduce noise level significantly and satisfy even the pickiest audiophiles. Solid Capacitor Design ASRock applied solid capacitors on this motherboard. With these solid caps, this motherboard is allowed to perform more stably and ensure longer lifetime. Digi Power Unlike traditional motherboards that use analog power, this motherboard uses a next generation digital PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) design, which provides CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced.

The Components of a Motherboard

As one of the most important pieces of a PC, the motherboard is complex and essential for the operation of a PC. Full of components that each play a role in the performance of your computer, the motherboard is the centerpiece of a PC. For the casual PC user, these facts might be of little interest to them, but for those interested in building their own gaming computer or just plain interested, here’s a brief explanation of a few motherboard components that can be found present on a motherboard.

CPU

The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is one of the most well-known components of a computer, as it should be seeing as it’s extremely vital for the speed and performance of our computer. Quite small in size, the CPU can typically be found under the heat sink, which absorbs the heat generated by the CPU works. Often called the brain of the computer, the CPU is what actually carries out every of your commands.

RAM

A piece of volatile memory, the RAM contains all the short term memory that you use when your computer is turned on. Whatever is recorded on the RAM is deleted when the computer is turned off. The bigger the RAM the better your computer's performance.

Memory Card Slots

Used to store the computer’s memory card slots, the number of varies depending on the motherboard, it is typically located in the upper-right art corner of most motherboards. When buying motherboards it is recommended to keep an eye on a number of slots it has, as well as the type of memory it supports. Doing so will benefit you later on, especially if you have any intentions of upgrading your PCs memory.

Northbridge and Southbridge

Known as the chipset, its purpose is to interconnect the various components on the motherboard with each other as well as with the rest of the computer, while at the same time coordinating their interactions.

Connectors

There are multiple slots, ports, and connectors to be found on a motherboard. Such as the USB headers audio ports, IDE and SATA Ports, and much more. Some of the connectors are only used to interconnect components within the motherboard, while some are for external use, such as the audio ports to connect to speakers or headphone jacks.

There are many more components of a motherboard that we have yet to touch on and these are only a few features that can be considered the most visible components to be found on a motherboard.

Best Gaming Motherboards

What constitutes as the best gaming “mobo” is a subjective opinion and truly depends on how the motherboard functions, as well as what you’re looking for in a motherboard. At most, however, we’re able to give a list of some of the most popular motherboard brands to be found here.
