ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional: The Most Feature-Rich LGA 1155 Mainboard
24 July 2012
Summary: This mainboard based on the Intel Z77 Express chipset features numerous advantages including but not limited to high-quality electronic components, phenomenal functionality due to numerous onboard controllers, good performance and overclocking potential. As for the drawbacks, there are hardly any.
Summary: The first thing I want to say is that I really do like the Fatal1ty Z77 Professional, but there are some design decisions that I just down right don't agree with. I'm not sure if they're coming from the ASRock side or from Fatal1ty who has say in the design. Why have we got an IDE and floppy connector on this board? There's nothing gamer about it and there's nothing professional about it.
Summary: First let me start by saying I am not going to sit here and discuss the value (performance/dollar) of these extreme Asrock motherboards, simply because they were not designed to be affordable products. That said, they could be compared to competing boards in terms of what they bring to help determine their value, so let’s quickly do that.

Our mate Wendel is not only selling his brand, but also a consultant for design on the products – as a result, we get features such as IDE ports, Floppy Ports, improved mouse sensitivity ports, and a push to be more gamer friendly.
Summary: The ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional came well packaged (not quite as well as the Z68 version ) and has a very well laid out board design and even features Floppy and IDE controllers! The board looks particularly smart and is a great basis for a red themed rig. Other notable features of the board are the on-board Power and Reset buttons along with the Debug LED (these really are useful!
