Xxl aluminum alloy heatsink design The extra large aluminum alloy ASRock Z97 Professional take away heat dramatically. As the mosfets and chipsets areas are well covered by these heatsinks to protect them from overheating, cpu and chipsets can perform with lower temperature, and your motherboard and system will be more stable and reliable. 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 two vertically mounted USB 3. Although it's typical to see headers facing horizontally off the side of modern motherboards generally for better cable managementASRock largely stuck to vertical header placement. The only ports that face horizontally are the SATA connectors, which are stacked in two rows on the right side of the motherboard You get a total of 10 SATA 3 connectors, eight of which are on the side of the board, with two more sitting just above the X99 chipset. That said, we're not sure what you might plug into it; a couple of years after these ports started appearing, we're still waiting to see a SATA Express drive that you ASRock Z97 Professional actually buy. The motherboard also has ASRock Z97 Professional digital debug display with the best name we have seen for a debug readout so far: ASRock has gone out of its way to assure gamers that its motherboard has the quality to match its price tag.

It points out that the board is created on Sapphire black PCB with copper inner layers. The capacitors have Nichicon platinum caps, and the graphics-card connectors are as we mentioned earlier wrapped in metal to provide better durability and support a feature the company calls ASRock Z97 Professional Slots". It also doesn't hurt that the board has those dozen power phases, which is a nod to gamers who want to overclock. The box ASRock Z97 Professional includes a motherboard manual and a separate BIOS manual.

Two of the SATA ASRock Z97 Professional have angled headers, which can make for easier cable management in cases that have motherboard tray pass-throughs near the edge of the board such as the SilverStone Redline RL Motherboard makers sometimes toss in a small adapter that stands between the fine cables for your case's front-panel buttons and status LEDs and the pinouts on the board. The most notable is the Asus implementation, called the Q-Connector. Once those individual connectors are attached to the adapter, you can plug the adapter into the front-panel connectors on the motherboard in one move. Given that the front-panel headers had the only labels on the motherboard that we had a hard time reading, a header adapter would have been a nice touch here, and one that's appropriate for a board at this price point.

Although you probably won't need access to the CPU socket backplate, you shouldn't have any ASRock Z97 Professional reaching it, in most desktop cases. We also installed a matched kit of four 8GB G. Dedicated graphics is a necessity here, as the E-Series processors designed for X99 motherboards lack integrated graphics. The ASRock Z97 Professional manual does a reasonable job of identifying ports and providing instructions for installing important parts like the processor and memory. That said, it is surprisingly short and doesn't include as many illustrations and other information as some of the manuals we have seen on other X99 motherboards.

We do like the separate Software ASRock Z97 Professional Guide, which ASRock Z97 Professional lots of screenshots of the BIOS and has a reasonable amount of instruction to get would-be overclockers up and running. This guide also covers the F-Stream peripheral-customization utility, which we mentioned earlier. ASRock includes a few programs for Windows on its driver disc. They're also available on its Web site. One of these is Creative's Sound Blaster Cinema 3, which offers audio tuning for gaming and video playback. The BIOS: Important stats for your processor, memory, and storage devices are lined up on the left side of the page, with critical temperatures and an animated fan-status graphic taking up much of the second half. The boot-device priority list also appears on this page. We noticed an issue with our G.


Only 16GB of the total 32GB appeared on the main screen. Our kit doesn't appear on ASRock's list of ASRock Z97 Professional memory modulesbut we were nonetheless surprised to see that the main page listed only two of the four DIMMs. Reseating and shuffling the modules had no effect, nor did flashing the BIOS to version 1.

Interestingly, though, all four modules appeared when we opened the Tools menu from the main page and selected the System Browser. ASRock Z97 Professional Z97 Professional.
