Holding the ASRock Fatal1ty in my hands I can see that they have come far enough to surprise a seasoned hardware veteran like me. From the XXL Aluminum Ally heatsinks to the heat pipe passively evening the heat loads to the Nichicon 12K Platinum Caps everything on this board screams two things, Quality and Overclock. Just a small spoiler, just for fun as soon as I got the board installed and the dual Radiator Thermaltake Water 2.0 hooked up I fired up the board and as soon as the OS was loaded I kicked on F-Stream Easy OC and one reboot later I was already at 4.2GHz stable and running. We are talking about a 900MHz OC with no effort other than clicking a button. If that doesn’t send you into Nerd Love you need to burn your Official Nerd Card and sprinkle the ashes over your neglected computer.
