I never put anything past ASrock. They're the absolute best about CPU support with BIOS updates and they always pack great features into their boards for extremely low prices. Just ordered a A85X ASrock board for $80. It was the only A85X board for less than $100 that actually had VRM cooling.

I don't know. I haven't ran any test on that rig. The only thing I know that it can be done.
