Base Frequency Boost (BFB) Technology Who ever said that only K series CPUs and the Z-family platform are capable of being performed with maximum power. Via ASRock BFB (Boost Frequency Boost) Technology, users may install their non K series CPUs to ASRock's selected 400 series motherboards and enjoy the base frequency boost with the hidden power of processors immediately. While ASRock BFB breathes life into non K series CPUs, the boost frequency currently still depends on the cooling system applied on your rig.

** BFB frequency performance results may vary between different CPUs and hardware configurations. Frequency shown in this chart is for reference only.
