ASRock has one of the highest-end motherboards its ever made about to launch, with its new X570 Aqua motherboard powered by AMD's new X570 chipset and ready for the Ryzen 3000 series CPUs.

The new ASRock X570 Aqua is "completely water cooled" apart from its DIMM slots, PCIe slots and a few other places on the board exposed. The company says the custom water block it has made is "skillfully designed to ensure the heat of the CPU, VRM, and chipset can be dissipated efficiently".

We have PCIe 4.0 connectivity courtesy of the X570 chipset, as well as a 14-phase power design that should allow for some great overclocking on the CPU. ASRock also includes 10GbE network connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, and Thunderbolt 3.

ASRock's new X570 Aqua will be a limited time run with the company making 999 motherboards, and expect the price to be somewhere up in the $1000 region.

The company explains: "Coolant is split into three passages so that each area can be cooled separately without interfering with each other. This design also lowers the water resistancy inside the cooling block, giving faster water flow to maintain the best cooling efficiency".
