Intel Core i7 2600K and Core i5 2500K review

The ASRock P67 Fatal1ty Professional Series Motherboard is the hottest and latest product from ASRock which will be looking at in a more detailed manner later this month. We used this board for all our Core i7-2600k testing today. The board remained rock solid and delivered high levels of performance, even with an early bios.

The board is populated with Gold Capacitors which offer 2.5 longer life time and 100% Japanese made high quality Conductive Polymer Capacitors. As expected it fully supports the new K series of processors and delivers an advanced V16+2 power phase design. Included in the bundle is a front mounted USB 3.0 panel, a rear USB 3.0 bracket, a plethora of cables including an SLI Bridge 2S card and software disc with detailed literature on the product and bios. Cyberlink DVD Suite is also included with the package.

The board can handle memory up to DDR3-2133mhz via OC profiles. Quad CrossfireX and 3 way SLI configurations are supported. It really is a stunning design, in menacing red and black. The heatsinks which help improve heat dissipation, do not interfere with any coolers we have tried, including the Noctua NH D14.

If you need maximum connectivity, then this is the board to deliver the goods. Dual gigabit, Six Sata 3 connectors, Four Rear USB 3.0 ports, a single eSATA3 connector and two IEEE 1394 ports are included. Additionally there is 7.1 CH high definition with Content Protection (Realtek ALC892 Audio Codec), with THX TruStudio Pro and Premium Bluray audio support.
