P45R2000-WiFi Software And Accessories

11-Way P45 Motherboard Shootout
By

ASRock includes a functional version of its OC Tuner software with the P45R2000-WiFi. Though we weren’t able to overclock nearly as far with the software utility as we could in BIOS, minor adjustments were easy to make and registered in CPU-Z as expected.

OC Tuner opens to a system health monitor and fan controls page. Notice the button marked “Off”, which can be turned “On” to launch the program automatically at every boot.

A more elaborate hardware monitor page shows vital information such as line voltage, but doesn’t report the numeric values for the buses or bridges.

CPU FSB clock and clock multiplier, plus PCI Express frequencies, are adjustable under the “Over Clocking” menu.

CPU Core and DRAM voltage are among things that can be altered in the Voltage Control menu, and the changes we made were instantly detected by CPU-Z.

In addition to ASRock’s proprietary system tuner, the company’s driver CD includes McAfee Virus Scan.

1x WiFi Antenna
1x WiFi Adapter Card
1x WiFi Antenna Slot Panel
1x 4-pin to SATA power adapter

ASRock’s accessory kit looks fairly good, but because the rear panel eSATA ports require two of the included SATA cable to carry the signal across the motherboard, eSATA users will need to buy additional internal SATA cables if they want to use more than two internal drives.

ASRock is the only company we’ve seen to include a cable for connecting the motherboard’s internal S/P-DIF output to an NVIDIA graphics card’s S/P-DIF pass through port, which allows motherboard audio to be carried through the graphics card’s HDMI output without creating a mess outside the case.
