Product Overview ASRock Killer Series features the Killer™ E2200 Intelligent Networking Platform is built for maximum networking performance for online games and high-quality streaming media. Featuring Advanced Stream Detect™, Killer E2200 automatically detects and accelerates game traffic ahead of other network traffic for smoother, stutter-free in-game performance and the competitive edge. With this exclusive, automatic traffic prioritization, games and real-time chat get priority over low-level system chatter, giving you the lowest latency for game data on the most controllable network hardware available.

M.2 Socket
ASRock’s motherboard is the world’s first and only motherboard that implements a Gen2 x2 M.2 socket. The onboard M.2 socket is a new interface for connecting Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) solid state drives or other devices with a smaller and more flexible physical specification, together with more advanced features.

Purity Sound™ brings you:
• 115dB SNR
• Excellent Bass
• Less Sound Distortion
• Supports up to 600ohm headphones

Hi-Density Power Connector
Hi-Density Power Connectors can reduce 23% power loss and decrease the power connector's temperature up to 22?.

15µ Gold Finger
Fatal1ty ASRock Series provides 15µ gold components within the VGA PCIe slot for delivering better anti-oxidation protection than usual.

SLI/CrossFireX Power Connector
The additional four pin SLI/CrossFireX Power Connector provides more juice and stability for graphics cards.

Qualcomm® Atheros® Killer™ LAN
Identify and accelerate traffic to your game, Killer LAN delivers fast networking with a new level of online gaming performance.

High Density Glass Fabric PCB
What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity or whatever you’d like to name it. And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit. Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.

Fatal1ty Mouse Port
Fatal1ty Mouse Port is a customizable technology for PC gamers that is a part of F-Stream. After plugging the USB mouse into the Fatal1ty Mouse Port and running F-Stream, gamers can use Fatal1ty’s personal preferred mouse polling rate at 500 Hz. F-Stream also provides the flexibility for gamers to adjust the mouse polling rate from 125 Hz to 1000 Hz. This is helpful for professional gamers to experience smoother game play and faster response time. Features • A-Style : ASRock Cloud, Purity Sound™

Rated 1 out of 5 by from There Is Better for cheaper My personal experience with this motherboard have been nothing but issues. First it started to keep making my computer freeze so then i tried to update the bios and it completely broke my motherboard and would not output any signal to the monitor. look somewhere els

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for overclocking It's a decent motherboard that does the job like the rest if you are keeping everything stock but that defeats the purpose of having good FX processors, right? While overclocking to even 4.4GHz I've found that it requires a silly amount of voltage to stabilise it but that had a nasty side itself because that gets the VRMs at easily over 80c, having them start throttling EVERYTHING down at 79c so demanding games like FH3, you only see the improvements for a matter of minutes before it turns into lagfest, having something blow air on them didn't fix a lot because the chunk of metal that is meant to cool them doesn't seem to really do much. After that the UEFI BIOS feel a bit sluggish so it ends up being more comfortable to navigate with just using the keyboard, the software you use in the OS feels rushed through the door with not a lot of effort put into it, I certainly wouldn't use their overclocking software to work on my CPU. TL;DR version, good if you'll be keeping everything stock and won't bother overclocking anything, don't bother if you want to overclock now or in the near future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scan messed up Scan seems to like to send out second hand motherboard. Missing cables, screws and faceplates. The board itself is brilliant even though it was cable tied to plastic foam to stop it moving around. Motherboard is a fantastic kit. just what you would need for gaming or high end server usage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good board purchased this board to finally make the move away from my 760G chipset. the ability to do a 2/3-way x-fire/sli is a nice touch but, the addition of the molex connect makes me question why it was put on the bottom where the psu in most pc cases will block it ? keep in mind that unlike most board, the audio isolation track does NOT illuminate sadly. the board looks much nicer when in person than it does in photos :) KEEP IN MIND that you WILL need to update the BIOS from P1.30 to P1.50 which can be done from ASrocks APP SHOP utility which makes updating of drivers and BIOS and total breeze. if you use an AIO watercooler like myself, DO be prepared for the fan to be much louder and faster spinning than normal ( maybe to do with bios/drivers ? ) if i can find a work around for this to make it silent again i will try and post here, if not, then be prepared to buy some silent series fans. USB connections are plentiful even has a USB 3.0 on the board itself.. would definitely recommend this this board to those who seek to upgrade or are on a budget to build a decent AMD gaming rig :) as usual, SCAN dispatched quickly via DPD, ordered saturday, arrived monday
