ASRock FM2A88X+ BTC: 55 facts and highlights

1. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
1600MHz
ASRock Z270 Taichi: 21233MHz

2. overclocked RAM speed

The motherboard supports overclocking the RAM to a higher speed. By increasing the speed at which the memory runs, you can boost the performance of your computer.
2400MHz
ASRock X299 OC Formula: 4600MHz

3. Easy to overclock

Overclocking your system is normally quite a complicated procedure, but some manufacturers provide a button or a program where one click will automatically overclock your computer, giving you increased performance.

4. PCIe 3.0 x16 slots

PCIe slots allow you to connect peripherals to the motherboard, most commonly graphics cards but also others such as sound cards and network cards. The ‘x16’ represents the number of lanes it has, with more lanes supporting higher data transfer rates. PCIe 3.0 offers higher transfer rates than PCIe 2.0, and can give increased performance.

5. maximum memory size

The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
64GB
Asus Z10PE-D16 WS: 1024GB

6. SATA 3 connectors

SATA is an interface used to connect mass storage devices such as hard drives and Blu-ray drives. SATA 3 has a native transfer rate of 6 Gbit/s, which is twice as fast as SATA 2, the previous revision. This is particularly useful if you use an SSD as it can perform at higher speeds.

7. Supports RAID 1

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 1 mirrors the data across the drives. This gives you greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another.

12. fan headers

Fan headers are connection points on the motherboard that cooling fans can be connected to. Fans can also be connected straight to the power supply, but when connected to the motherboard you gain much finer control over them through software.

17. Supports RAID 5

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 5 stripes the data across the drives, giving increased performance compared to a single disk. It also provides greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another due to the use of parity.
