ASRock H55DE3 Motherboard Review Back of box

Back of box

ASRock decided to bundle the motherboard in a plain white box. The name of the board is in the center of the box along with the ASRock logo and Windows 7 support logos. The types of CPUs the board can take are listed on the top right hand corner of the box. The bottom of the box shows the memory supported, the OC DNA logo, the ESATA/USB connections and the ATI CrossfireX support.

The back of the box lists the various features of the motherboard and descriptions of each feature. It is worth noting that H55 motherboards tend to be mainstream and inexpensive. ASRock includes two SATA Data cables with their motherboard along with the back plate and Driver CD. As the H55 chipset does not natively support RAID, this is acceptable.

The software suite included with the boards is very comprehensive. ASRock includes OEM versions of CyberLink’s Power2Go, MediaShow 4.1, PowerDVD 8.0 Trial, PowerDirector 8.0 Trial, PowerBackup Trial, and Creative Lab’s Sound Blaster X-Fi Trial. The board also comes with ASRock’s Intelligent Energy Saver, OC Tuner, Instant Flash, OC DNA, Good Night LED, and Instant Boot. OC DNA allows you to save overclocking profiles and share it with your friends. IES uses the Power Phases to lower power consumption when system doesn’t need extra power.
