Product Description

Delivering faster networking performance for time-sensitive UDP (User Datagram Protocol) based applications, such as high quality media streaming.  No matter whether you are still a newbie with absolutely zero experience or a veteran who is already pretty skilful in overclocking, the legendary over clocker Nick Shih has added a few presets for different levels of overclocking called Nick Shih's OC Profile. Now is your chance to learn a few tricks from the champion.  Fine-Tuning V-Controller is a massive collection of voltage fine tuning options in the ASRock UEFI Setup Utility. It provides more than enough voltage configuration options for professional over clockers who wish to pursuit extremes.  Timing Configurator is an independent application that runs under Windows OS, it allows users to monitor an abundant collection of subtle DRAM timing values immediately and easily.  In a world where time is money, why waste precious time everyday typing usernames to log in to Windows? Why should we even bother memorizing those foot long passwords? Nobody has time for that! Just plug in the USB Key and let your computer log in to windows automatically!  ASRock XFast RAM fully utilizes the memory space that cannot be used under Windows 32-bit operating systems. It shortens the loading time of previously visited websites, making web surfing faster than ever. And it also boosts the speed of Adobe Photoshop 5 times faster. Another advantage of ASRock XFast RAM is that it reduces the frequency of accessing your SSDs or HDDs in order to extend their lifespan.
