    Default ASRock Fatal1ty B85 Killer Board Review

    Far too often we pay attention to the biggest and best boards on the market and overlook the ones that actually make up a large portion of the sales. Entry to mid range components are used by the majority system builders to do a specific function and to keep costs down. Today we will be looking at a board from ASRock that falls right into the Mid-Range market but does so without skimping on features. The Fatal1ty B85 Killer is directed right at system builders that are also hardcore gamers. The Fatal1ty series of products are made to address the desires of all gamers: quality audio, network lag and FPS. The B85 Killer is one of four new boards from ASRock to carry the Fatal1ty name.

    Thanks Fellas! I am still using this board in the build I did for the review. Its rock solid and if you didnt look to hard you would never know it wasnt a Z87 board. Have the 7950s in there running 24/7 mining ALT coins. Flawless.
