With Bulldozer on the horizon, now is a great time to think about upgrading to a 990FX motherboard. We have looked at a number of different offerings from the likes of Gigabyte and Asus, including the awesome Crosshair V Formula which sits at the top of Asus’ range.
Today we are going to look at ASRock’s flagship 990FX motherboard, the Fatal1ty 990FX Professional, which boasts a feature set to rival the Crosshair V Formula. It also uses a very similar red and black colour scheme that is sure to appeal to many enthusiast users. Some of the most prominent features are USB3.0 support and SATA-600 support across all six internal SATA connections.
The 990FX chipset is backwards compatible with all AMD’s current Athlon and Phenom processors so you can prepare your system for Bulldozer now. This means you can spread out the cost of the upgrade as you don’t need to buy the CPU and motherboard at the same time.
