ASRock Unveils The H110M-HDVP Motherboard
John Williamson / 2 years ago
ASRock manufacturers a huge range of motherboards sporting various chipsets and platforms which cater towards users with contrasting budgets. Whether you’re looking for an extreme overclocking motherboard with LN2 functionality or a basic alternative utilising a budget chipset, there’s something to suit your requirements. While hardware enthusiasts tend to fixate on X99 and Z170 options, there is a market for B150, H110 products. The company’s latest value motherboard is the H110M-HDVP designed for low-cost rigs and HTPCs. This particular model is based on the Micro-ATX form factor and features a fairly basic 3+1 power design. Furthermore, the power is supplied via the traditional 24-pin connector and a 4-pin ATX. The motherboard also supports up to 32GB of dual-channel memory with a maximum DDR4 speed of 2133MHz.
In terms of expansion slots, the H110M-HDVP incorporates a single PCI-E x16, legacy PCI and two PCI-E x1. When it comes to storage, there are four SATA 6Gb/s ports which should be more than enough for typical usage scenarios. Next up is the rear I/O which includes a PS/2 keyboard, PS/2 mouse, VGA, DVI, RS-232 serial COM port, two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0, RJ45, and 3 audio jacks. It’s even possible to add another RS-232 serial COM and parallel LPT via internal headers. This combination of older legacy ports and newer technology is superb for users with older hardware who want a new motherboard. ASRock hasn’t disclosed an official price yet but I’m expected this model to remain well under $80.
