It is a user-friendly ASRock overclocking tool which allows you to surveil your system by hardware monitor function and overclock your hardware devices to get the best system performance under Windows environment. Please visit our website for the operation procedures of ASRock OC Tuner. ASRock website: http://www.asrock.com Featuring an advanced proprietary hardware and software design, Intelligent Energy Saver is a revolutionary technology that delivers unparalleled power savings. The voltage regulator can reduce the number of output phases to improve efficiency when the CPU cores are idle. In other words, it is able to provide exceptional power saving and improve power efficiency without sacrificing computing performance. To use Intelligent Energy Saver function, please enable Cool n Quiet option in the BIOS setup in advance. Please visit our website for the operation procedures of Intelligent Energy Saver. ASRock website: http://www.asrock.com ASRock Instant Flash is a BIOS flash utility embedded in Flash ROM. This convenient BIOS update tool allows you to update system BIOS without entering operating systems first like MS-DOS or Windows. With this utility, you can press <F6> key during the POST or press <F2> key to BIOS setup menu to access ASRock Instant Flash. Just launch this tool and save the new BIOS file to your USB flash drive, floppy disk or hard drive, then you can update your BIOS only in a few clicks without preparing an additional floppy diskette or other complicated flash utility. Please be noted that the USB flash drive or hard drive must use FAT32/16/12 file system. The software name itself OC DNA literally tells you what it is capable of. OC DNA, an exclusive utility developed by ASRock, provides a convenient way for the user to record the OC settings and share with others. It helps you to save your overclocking record under the operating system and simplifies the complicated recording process of overclocking settings. With OC DNA, you can save your OC settings as a profile and share with your friends! Your friends then can load the OC profile to their own system to get the same OC settings as yours! Please be noticed that the OC profile can only be shared and worked on the same motherboard. Although this motherboard offers stepless control, it is not recommended to perform over-clocking. Frequencies other than the recommended CPU bus frequencies may cause the instability of the system or damage the CPU. While CPU overheat is detected, the system will automatically shutdown. Before you resume the system, please check if the CPU fan on the motherboard functions properly and unplug the power cord, then plug it back again. To improve heat dissipation, remember to spray thermal grease between the CPU and the heatsink when you install the PC system.
The DIMM only fits in one correct orientation. It will cause permanent damage to the motherboard and the DIMM if you force the DIMM into the slot at incorrect orientation.
Firmly insert the DIMM into the slot until the retaining clips at both ends fully snap back in place and the DIMM is properly seated.
2.4 Expansion Slots (PCI and PCI Express Slots)
There are 2 PCI slots and 2 PCI Express slots on this motherboard. PCI slots: PCI slots are used to install expansion cards that have the 32-bit PCI interface. PCIE slots: PCIE1 (PCIE x1 slot; White) is used for PCI Express cards with x1 lane width cards, such as Gigabit LAN card, SATA2 card, etc. PCIE2 (PCIE x16 slot; Blue) is used for PCI Express cards with x16 lane width graphics cards.
Installing an expansion card
Step 1. Before installing the expansion card, please make sure that the power supply is switched off or the power cord is unplugged. Please read the documentation of the expansion card and make necessary hardware settings for the card before you start the installation. Remove the bracket facing the slot that you intend to use. Keep the screws for later use. Align the card connector with the slot and press firmly until the card is completely seated on the slot. Fasten the card to the chassis with screws.
Step 2. Step 3. Step 4.
2.5 Dual Monitor and Surround Display Features
Dual Monitor Feature This motherboard supports dual monitor feature. With the internal dual VGA output support (DVI-D and D-Sub), you can easily enjoy the benefits of dual monitor feature without installing any add-on VGA card to this motherboard. This motherboard also provides independent display controllers for DVI-D and D-Sub to support dual VGA output so that DVI-D and D-sub can drive same or different display contents. To enable dual monitor feature, please follow the below steps: 1. Connect the DVI-D monitor cable to the VGA/DVI-D port on the I/O panel. And connect the D-Sub monitor cable to the VGA/D-Sub port on the I/O panel.
2. If you have installed onboard VGA driver from our support CD to your system already, you can freely enjoy the benefits of dual monitor function after your system boots. If you havent installed onboard VGA driver yet, please install onboard VGA driver from our support CD to your system and restart your computer. Then you can start to use dual monitor function on this motherboard.
When you playback HDCP-protected video from Blu-ray (BD) or HD-DVD disc, the content will be displayed only in one of the two monitors instead of both monitors.
Surround Display Feature This motherboard supports surround display upgrade. With the internal dual VGA output support (DVI-D and D-Sub) and the external add-on PCI Express VGA card, you can easily enjoy the benefits of surround display feature.

OC DNA Instruction
Save your BIOS OC settings as User Default in BIOS OC Tweaker menu. (For example: we name this User Default setting as CPU_OC3.8GHz)
Execute ASRock OC DNA under OS, you will find CPU_OC3.8GHz as User Profile 1.
Press Save button to save the CPU_OC3.8GHz OC settings as a profile.
Send the CPU_OC3.8GHz profile to other friends.
When the friend receives your CPU_OC3.8GHz profile, he can press Load to load the CPU_OC3.8GHz profile in OC DNA.
After that, the friend can enter into BIOS OC Tweaker menu to load the CPU_OC3.8GHz profile as his BIOS OC settings.
Now, you have successfully share your OC setting profile with your friends.
*The OC DNA works only when users use the same motherboard and BIOS version.

ErP/EuP Ready Motherboard
ErP/EuP Ready Power Supply
What is ErP/EuP?
ErP/EuP, stands for Energy Using Product, was a provision regulated by European Union to define the power consumption for the completed system. With the great quantity and the popularly using of the electrical products nowadays and the continuously increasing of the electrical products categories in the following 20 to 30 years, European Union decided to establish an effective strategy to solve the energy consumption problem. That is, according to ErP/EuP, the total AC power of the completed system shall be under 1.00W in off mode condition.

ASRock Instant Flash
ASRock Instant Flash is an exclusive and the most user-friendly BIOS flash utility developed by ASRock. It is embedded in Flash ROM which is used to update the system BIOS without having to enter operating systems like MS-DOS or Windows.
Once executing ASRock Instant Flash, the utility will automatically detect all devices such as USB, hard disk or even floppy drive to find the exact BIOS for your system. Instead of giving you all BIOS in your devices, the Instant Flash just list BIOS versions that apply to your motherboard model only. For example, if you have many different BIOS of different motherboards saved in your devices, but you just need to flash your P45 motherboard, the Instant Flash will just list the P45 BIOS versions for you. This unique function allows you to easily select the suitable BIOS version instead of browsing through all data.
Instant Flash just list BIOS versions that apply to your motherboard model.
