Introduction:

ASRock in partnership with Fatal1ty brings a new version of the awesome Intel 1155 socket Sandy bridge based motherboards to market with the sole purpose of giving gamers the greatest edge possible. This enthusiast motherboard featuring the Intel Z68 chipset is designed to harness the full potential of the Intel Sandy bridge series processors.  The late arrival of the Z68 allows those waiting for the new 1155 socket to mature a chance to take advantage of both the H67 and the P67 chipset features  allowing for use of on-board graphics as well as overclocking of the CPU. With additional input from  Johnathan ‘Fatal1ty’ Wendel the engineers at ASRock have come up with the 3rd Gen version of the Fatal1ty Z68 Professional motherboard while incorporating some great unique features. Wendel worked closely with the ASRock team to produce a featured-loaded, rock-solid motherboard that met this professional gamer’s standards:

My vision for Fatal1ty hardware is to allow gamers to focus on the game without worrying about their equipment, something I’ve preached since I began competing. I don’t want to worry about my equipment. I want to be there – over and done with – so I can focus on the game. I want it to be the fastest and most stable computer equipment on the face of the planet, so quality is what Fatal1ty Brand products represent.

  1. Hi there this is my first time posting. But i been a forum guess for the longest and i decided to post and tell how i like this forum

  2. I have one of these boards with allmost same setup tested here except I have a zotac gtx 460 1gb card. It runs bad company 2 at average 65 fps with stock settings and average 80 fps when over clocked to 4000. mhz. With using a cooler master 212plus cpu cooler, the motherboard allmost never gets over 30c and the cpu average in the low 30’s stock and mid/uper 30’s overclocked steady at 4100mhz. It is a beautifull looking board also and the fatal1ty look on the bios is a welcome releif from the usual blue screen of past bios.

  3. I thought that SATA cables had the right angle plug for the HDD end not the Mobo?

  4. Thank you for finally putting the “link” posting back into your email post. It has been missing for about six months and I couldn’t read the email you posted. Thank You!
