ASRock's new Haswell motherboards will be waterproof

If your current motherboard has more Mountain Dew than CPU, you might be interested in ASRock‘s forthcoming Haswell offerings. Among the usual features like dual-band 802.11ac-flavored WiFi, HDMI input and a Home Cloud service, Tom’s Hardware spotted a mention of “Waterproof by Conformal Coating.” The company’s sub-site doesn’t give too much else away, like how extensive the protection will be, instead simply telling us to “A-Style our lifestyle.” The only feature with any amount of detail is a Pure Sound audio system (7.1 channel audio, Realtek ALC1150 audio codec and a TI 5532 pre-amp if you’re interested) that we’ve already seen. Still, if fluid has been getting between you and your high scores, keep an eye on the source for more info.

Update:And just like that, ASRock has added more info about the HDMI input, including a demo video which you can find after the break.
