ASRock is a reasonably experienced company, producing various computer parts, ranging from motherboards to wifi antennas. Based in Taipei, Taiwan, they have various other branches in the Netherlands and the United States.
Accepted memory ranges anywhere from DDR4 3200 (non overclocked) to DDR4 4666 (overclocked). This motherboard specifically is built for overclocking. Along with multiple fans, and plenty of room for a custom watercooling loop.
” No compromise board for anyone using an AIO cooler. Only reason to pay more is if you are doing a custom cooling loop needing water channels in the motherboard.”
