Product Features:



Fatal1ty Mouse Port


Fatal1ty Mouse Port is a customizable technology for PC gamers that is a part of F-Stream. After plugging the USB mouse into the Fatal1ty Mouse Port and running F-Stream, gamers can use Fatal1ty’s personal preferred mouse polling rate at 500 Hz. F-Stream also provides the flexibility for gamers to adjust the mouse polling rate from 125 Hz to 1000 Hz. This is helpful for professional gamers to experience smoother game play and faster response time to the mouse.



Digital PWM Design


By adopting digital Pulse-width modulation (PWM), the Fatal1ty Series can provide CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly. Compared to analog PWM, digital PWM can optimize the CPU power solution and provide a proper and stable Vcore for the processor.



Fatal1ty XFast USB Technology - Faster Than Your Imagination!


Fatal1ty XFast USB Technology redefines the new standard in high performance computing. Proving once again to be the pioneer in motherboard industry, Fatal1ty XFast USB Series Motherboards integrate with the latest XFast USB Technology which delivers the world's fastest USB data transfer speed. According to the below graph, it shows that the Fatal1ty XFast USB technology can even boost USB 3.0 performance up to 97.7%!





PLX PEX8608 chip onboard


Fatal1ty Motherboard breaks the limitation and offers sufficient PCI-E lanes solution by embedding PLX PEX8608 chip onboard.



With PLX PEX8608 chip, it generates more PCI-E lanes for PCI-E devices, so that all PCI-E devices are able to work at the proper speed simultaneously!



With traditional switch, if users want to run the PCI-E x4 slot at PCI-E, then the other 3 PCI-E x1 slots can not be used. If users install device in any of the PCI-E x1 slot, then the PCI-E x4 slot will suffer to downgrade running at PCI-E x1.



V16+2 CPU Power Phase


The Fatal1ty Series motherboard is designed with a V16+2 Power Phase, featuring sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. The P67 Professional Series offers unmatched overclocking capability and enhanced performance with the lowest temperatures for PC gaming enthusiasts.



6 USB 3.0 (2 x Front, 4 x Back) + 6 SATA3


Coupled with six USB 3.0 and six SATA3 ports, the Fatal1ty motherboard offers plenty of storage options. Based on the concept of customization, this board is specially equipped with six USB 3.0 ports (two from external Front USB 3.0 panel, four from real I/O) and six SATA 3 connectors to satisfy PC DIYer’s various needs.



Premium Gold Caps


All the capacitors on the Fatal1ty Series gaming motherboard are luxury, Premium Gold Caps. These 100% Japan-made solid capacitors are sleek, high gloss caps with a premium gold coating representing long life and stable performance.



3 PCIE 2.0 slots - Support CrossFireX, SLI


Supporting ATI™ 3-way / Quad CrossFireX™ and NVIDIA® Quad SLI™. 3 PCI Express 2.0 graphics interfaces support both CrossFireX and SLI for ultimate graphics performance.



Dual LAN - Teaming


Dual LAN with Teaming function enabled on this motherboard allows two single connections to act as one single connection for twice the transmission bandwidth, making data transmission more effective.



C.C.O. (Combo Cooler Option)


C.C.O., stands for Combo Cooler Option, is another exclusive hardware design on ASRock boards. C.C.O. provides the flexible options to adopt different CPU cooler types and matches your socket LGA775, LGA1155 / LGA1156 CPU cooler in the respective holes. Once again, ASRock has successfully expanded the utilization of PCB by the exclusive C.C.O. design.
