High Density Glass Fabric PCB
What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity or whatever you’d like to name it.
And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly.
No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit.
Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
A-Tuning is ASRock's multi purpose software suite with a new interface, more new features and improved utilities, including XFast RAM and a whole lot more.
