Packaging and Accessories
Overall solid packaging. Initially I love the Fatal1ty theme of this board and the overall clean look. The glossy finish really makes the black and red contrast pop. The included accessories allow for easy integration of a SLI/Crossfire build as well as USB 3.0 accessibility through a chassis that doesn’t support it with the included USB3.0 Bay that doubles as a SSD Bracket.
Still, we have no doubts about the overall layout and design of the Fatal1ty Board. To break it down, our 4 ram ports supporting Quad Channel Ram are split into a 2-by-2 configuration seemingly due to the large CPU slot. Next to the right 2 DIMM slots are our USB 3.0 ports with the outer most one supporting EZ Charger. Moving down our 10x SATA Ports are all right angled making cable management a breeze. In the bottem right corner we have our Easy Power and Easy Reset switches. Along the bottom (from right to left) we have a fan port, case inputs for reset and power, Dr Debug, 2x USB headers, Another USB header above the IR header, the SLI/Crossfire Power port, a COM header, a Fireware Header, and HD Audio. On top of seemingly having everything that a gamer needs it has looks to kill. Classic Fatal1ty hasn’t missed a beat.
