Earlier this year ASRock surprised us with their M3A780GXH/128M motherboard. Today we look at that boards successor, the ASRock M3A785GXH/128M motherboard. The new board features an integrated Radeon HD 4200 with 128mb of DDR3 onboard. Is it enough to run FarCry 2? Hit the link to find out.
The ASRock M3A785GXH128M uses a 4+1 Phase power design. While this might be a red flag for some, we were able to overclock a 140W Phenom II X4 965 to a vCore of 1.55v with just a simple 80mm fan blowing across the MOSFETs. With a BIOS made for overclocking and AMD's awesome OverDrive at our disposal we were able to squeeze an extra 500mhz out of our Phenom II X4 965 Black edition Processor. Even with bare MOSFETS we had no trouble cranking up the voltage to 1.52v. and were able to reach 3.9GHz!
