The tradition of stacking good materials continues, and the high-quality overclocking performance is incredible

ASRock Taichi series ASRock has the title of King of Stacking Materials, there are all kinds of good materials in one, and this time the new Z790 Taichi chipset is no exception. This year’s Taichi series has a 20th anniversary edition and a general version to choose from This time we will present the general version The materials used are very solid The CPU power supply adopts a 24+2+1 phase design, with 105A SPS Dr.MOS and Nichicon 12k black capacitors. The MOSFET has a large independent. area cooling module, and has a cooling fan to achieve better power supply Heat dissipation and audio effects use Realtek ALC4082 chips, with audiophile-grade WIMA audio capacitors and ESS SABRE9218 DAC, providing very high quality audio output quality, which memory supports four DDR5 expansions, and the maximum frequency can be overclocked to 7200MHz or more. PCIe x16 provides three sets of expansion, The first two sets are covered with metal to reduce noise and improve performance and quality the signal. The first two sets support PCIe 5.0 signals, and the last set only supports PCIe 4.0 signals. The M.2 interface provides five sets of expansion. The first set in Blazing M.2 supports PCIe Gen5 x4 signals, the other four groups in Hyper M.2 support PCIe Gen4 x4 signals, there all of them have independent heat dissipation modules, which can be very stable and efficient even after long-term operation; the network uses Intel Killer 2.5GbE network cards, GbE With Intel Wi-Fi 6E wireless network card, the RGB LED control provides three sets of addressable RGB control and one set of slots 12V RGB control, which can be used to adjust the lights through the equipment software, and can also be used to support the simultaneous control of other RGB LED products, USB has two sets of Thunderbolt 4 USB 4 Type-C ports, and the overall specifications are extremely complete. This time, we will use the flagship Intel Core i9-13900K for an overclocking performance test and a memory overclocking test. Now let’s take a look at the ASRock ASRock Z790 Taichi belt Come on for a great premium show!
