Sitting in the middle of ASRock’s current Z97 gaming motherboard line-up, the Fatal1ty Z97X Killer targets the fierce sub-£130 marketplace. Can its feature set, overclocking capabilities, and general performance allow it to stand out in a hotly-contested segment of the market?

ASRock supplies its Z97X Killer with a number of popular gaming-orientated features that we have come to expect from boards competing in this segment of the market. Networking is provided by Killer’s E2200 series NIC, while ASRock’s Purity Sound 2 audio implementation is powered by the Realtek ALC1150 codec. Three full-length PCIe 3.0 slots permit for three-card CrossFire and two-card SLI capabilities.

Aiming to put its own stamp on the sub-£130 gaming motherboard market, ASRock adds unique features to its Z97X Killer. HDD saver provides users with an extended amount of control over their SATA drive. A choice between M.2 and SATA Express is welcomed on a £125 board, as is the upgraded power delivery system that ASRock calls Super Alloy. And when software comes into the picture, ASRock provides its F-Stream utility and a 3-month XSplit premium license.

Can the bright and bold Z97X Killer prove that it is capable of competing in the fierce sub-£130 gaming motherboard market?

Features:

  • Killer E2200 series NIC.
  • Purity Sound 2 audio.
  • M.2 and SATA Express connectors.
  • ASRock Super Alloy.
  • Gaming Armor.
  • XSplit Gamecaster & Broadcaster 3-month premium license.
