One of our highlights back in Computex 2019 at the ASRock booth was the white-coloured ASRock X570 Aqua motherboard. The ASRock X570 Aqua is a limited-edition motherboard wherein only 999 units will be put to production. The ASRock X570 Aqua sports a full-cover water block that covers the AM4 Socket processor, voltage regulation modules (MOSFETs), and the Platform Controller Hub that contains the AMD X570 chipset. Most AMD X570 motherboards come with a cooling fan on the PCH to cool the AMD X570 chipset, the ASRock X570 Aqua takes it to a whole new level by delivering superior cooling to the PCH using a liquid cooling engine. Today, ASRock officially announces the X570 Aqua motherboard. Check out ASRock’s preview video of the X570 Aqua motherboard below.
Back in Computex 2019, we did get a closer look at the ASRock X570 Aqua motherboard prototype. Check out our video below.
ASRock X570 Aqua MotherboardASRock X570 Aqua is designed by enthusiasts, made to perfection, built for extreme performance. Beneath the high-performance water block is a 14 Power Phase Design IR 60A PowIRStage PWM with Premium 60A power chokes with Nichicon 12K Black Caps for the ultimate power delivery. The motherboard is built with server-grade low-loss 8-layer PCB with 2oz copper for greater reliability. For the PCIe and DIMM slots come with 15-micron Gold contacts which ensures a reliable connection between components.
The ASRock X570 Aqua also features a full-sized aluminium cover which includes the rear I/O ports. The motherboard also comes with full-cover M.2 heatsinks that offer passive cooling for installed M.2 SATA or PCIe SSDs. The motherboard’s Aqua Cooling Armour splits the coolant into three passages that cools critical areas separately without interfering each other. The split-cooling design lowers the water-resistant inside the cooling block and promotes faster water flow to maintain best cooling efficiency.
