ASRock Fatal1ty X79 Champion Motherboard Review

Review Score:
2 Flares 2 Flares ×

Today we are looking at the ASRock Fatal1ty X79 Champion – hot on the heels of our analysis of the X79 Extreme11.  The Fatal1ty X79 Champion seems to be somewhat of a bargain when compared to the £500 X79 Extreme11 … as it only costs £330.  This puts it up against Asus top-of-the range Rampage IV Extreme motherboard which is also designed with serious overclockers in mind.

We are going to test the motherboard with an Intel Core i7-3930K processor both at stock settings and when overclocked.

    ALso I think their bioses are getting better. those preoverclocked settings are genius and a huge lifesaver for less experienced users.

    great design, still very expensive, but they seem to be targeting ASUS with these boards IMO. getting a good rep now.
