ASRock M8 Mini-ITX Barebones Gaming PC Review

ASRock M8 Software

ASRock includes its standard suite of manufacturer-customized applications and freeware in the M8 PC’s installation disc, but its upgraded audio chip adds Creative’s Sound Blaster Recon3D application.

Most interesting of the application’s features is its ability to make your opponents noisier in games through Scout Mode. More familiar controls include equalization, reverberation, and noise reduction.

ASRock A-Tune doesn’t change, but its tuning limits are motherboard-defined. I grabbed a couple of screen shots to show how far this motherboard lets users push system settings.
