ASRock Fatal1ty X99M Killer mATX Motherboard Review

ASRock F-Stream


ASRock’s F-Stream software for its Fatal1ty series motherboards is practically equivalent to the A-Tuning software found on the vendor’s channel parts.

There are three system modes designed for different operating scenarios. We opted for the Performance mode.


ASRock includes a number of tools in its A-Tuning software suite.

3-oc-tweaker-1 3-oc-tweaker-2

Overclocking settings and parameters can be tweaked via the software, in an OS environment.

4--system-info-1 5-tools-Health

Readings relating to system parameters such as voltages, frequencies, and fan speeds are outlined in the System Info page.

The health and other general statistics relating to a storage drive can be read via one of ASRock’s tools.


ASRock also puts its convenient Board Explorer tool in the A-Tuning software package.

5-tools-XFAST-RAM 5-tools-XFAST-LAN

XFast RAM can be used to create RAM drive, while XFast LAN gives users the opportunity to control their network bandwidth allocation (much like Killer’s Network Manager software).

5-tools-Key-master-1 5-tools-Key-master-2

Key Master can be used to assign macro keys, which can be useful for certain high-APM games. There’s also Sniper Key which can be used to stabilise mouse movement when high accuracy is required (like when sniping in a FPS game).


Fatal1ty Mouse Port gives gamers the ability to control the polling rate of their mouse. While this a fair inclusion, most gaming mouse software will provide similar functionality.


Live Update is well-implemented by ASRock and is more convenient than trawling through a website full of drivers.

ASRock App Shop


App Shop can be used to download new software, including some pieces from external companies, such as Google.

ASRock also includes 1-year subscription to Orbweb.ME (worth $50) which will be welcomed by users who opt for cloud storage.
