don't believe everything that asrock says, they are known for falsely advertizing stuffs, just watch this for an example:

xfast lan, makes your internet 5x faster. doh.gif
xfast ram, makes your ram 5x faster doh.gif
xfast usb, makes your usb 5x faster, from 250mbps to 500mbps doh.gif


Its not lying, it does improve latency by an average of about 5x faster. not literally making your internet 5 times faster, if you watched the vid or did some research before opening your ignorant mouth, you would see how the stuff works, the software is basically re branded similar types, whether they have permission or if this is slightly different is not known, regardless the claim is essentially true. when you 1/5th the latency, you do 5x faster although not in the way YOU think. you cn use this stuff with any mobo.

you serious? apply waterproof coating on the connectors? how are you gonna use those connectors then? that will render it useless.

We have used coatings just like this on some of our SRA's on the APG-65/73 package, the coating is fairly thin and to make solder connections you do need to scrape a bit away, however this isnt for submerging the thing, its preventative maintenance and HELPS protect it in the unfortunate certain thing happening lol. however its quite effective.

not to mention once you put thing on the connectors the connection itself may be "activated" in the sense that the act of connecting scrapes the thin layer off of the pins, and while connected it may be ok, I am not sure, I guess its better than nothing, besides I am sure more info will come, it looks like a teaser trailer, to spark intrigue. its ok to be somewhat skeptical, but cynical is just unhealthy, not to mention makes people sound ignorant, and annoying that have to find the fault in everything.

as far as exaggerated/false claims, I am sure they are within the laws for such things, and its possible some companies are not, but they don't do very well at least not for very long, and especially not receiving any awards:

A side note, if you look closely at the video, the connectors do not even look submerged, since they are raised a bit, they may not even be in contact, its not submerged, it seems like a "piece of mind" thing for people who water cool, or cool with methods that make condensation.

I used this system on an old BP6 dual socket AMD rig for about a day. Thats it:)

All that might has well gotten:

MUCH cleaner, and nice looking lol.

how many HP was your compressor? how cold did it get the water?

it may actually be water proof.

coatings usually provide GOOD water resistance / proofing.

gasket based (watches cameras etc.) usually are just resistant, since higher pressure can seep into the gasket and get in.

a coating like this would waterproof until it came off. what qualities make it come of would be unknown to users until the coating spec were released or we knew the manufacturing process.

well, if using the connector scrapes off the coating, then this is one time use only kid of deal, then it's not waterproof anymore. i highly doubt that this mobo is waterproof, they should have said water resistant, FALSE ADVERTISING

i'm not going to argue abot the "5x faster internet" but what are you gonna say about the "5x faster usb"? from 250mbps to 500mbps? isn't that a straight lie to your face? and how about the "makes your ram 5x faster"

it's all falsely advertized, wether you admit it not.

how about let's stop arguing about "terms"?
THIS conformal coating, if used on the connectors, will render the connectors useless. so no, they did not coat the connectors with this.

I may have missed it but I'm not sure where you are quoting "makes your ram x5 faster" from. In the video he mentions it can boost system performance up to 5x faster by creating a ram disk with the asrock software.
