    Default ASRock Z87 Professional Seires Fatal1ty Motherboard Review

    Over the last few years we have seen ASRock jump ahead in the motherboard arena. They have developed some rock solid motherboards at a very affordable price. With almost every flagship motherboard from ASRock, we have seen top performers when it comes to overclocking and stability. Not only has ASRock performed well in the past, they have great aesthetic appeal too. Today, we have a chance to look at the new ASRock Z87 Professional Series Fatal1ty Motherboard. With Haswell now in full swing, we have seen a number of great performers out there. Let's put this motherboard to the test and see what it can do with our Intel 4770K Haswell Processor.

    I had considered the previous version of the board for a build but, then my customer opted to go another way. They have definitely stepped up their game recently. I think in another few years they will be a real competitor to other top name mobo manufacturers. Thanks News Team, good review

    nice review Kenny. personally im not really liking the look of that board. i like the look of regular extreme boards better but it does come with some nice features. I like Asrock boards, mine been working flawless for a while now and looks like they're getting even better with their newer boards.
    You don't know me and that's the way i like it!

    Great review Kenny! I personally like the way the board looks.

    Hey Kenny,

    Is there are way to compare this boards stability, Stable overclocks and performance to another board. We see the comparisons between 2 cpus but what about the performance of the board? Would the scores be higher or lower in say a board from MSI or Gigabyte?

    Thanks, There is a way, however you will need to look at both boards reviews.
    Since every board can overclock differently then others, its hard to always put them side by side. Also the chip used can play a big factor in most OC's.

    Here is a perfect example:

    While the 2 MSI boards I reviewed did great and stable at 4.4GHz, the ASRock did it at 4.3Ghz. However 4.6Ghz was the top OC on the MSI boards, the ASRock was bootable at 4.8Ghz without issues. However, its when the benchmark apps get launched that we get crashes and for the ASRock, it was the same thru most of the spectrum of 4.4Ghz - 4.8Ghz. The 100% stability was never there, which is why we used 4.3Ghz as our stable OC in the review since it was the best we were able to gain.

    However, the OC isn't only the motherboard, its how the chip reacts to is, and I already know the chip we have is not binned at ALL. its one of the more difficult chips I have worked with. But I have seen good results with the i5 4670k. So that can be another good option to use, but I don't have the money for a new chip right now.

    One of the most complete and accurate review i have ever seen. Still i'm not a big fan of ASRock, though the board is very capable. Best options for me regarding motherboards are Gigabyte, EVGA and MSI.

    ASRock has kept to standard conventions and the six closest to the power and reset buttons are the Intel SATA 6Gb/s ports while the four nearest the RAM slots are the ASMedia controlled SATA 6Gb/s ports.

    hey Alan,

    If I remember correctly, it was the bottom six ports. They should be labeled Sata_0 to Sata_5, then the ASMedia controlled ones are the top 4.
    Its been a while since I reviews this board..

    If you have the manual, take a look at it. The info should be in there.
