Frequently Bought Together
Product Overview XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsink Design
Extra large heat sinks that effectively take away heat from the MOSFET and chipset so that your motherboard may perform more stable.

Premium 60A Power Choke
Compared to traditional chokes, ASRock’s new-gen premium power chokes effectively increase up to 3 times better saturation current, providing enhanced and improved Vcore voltage to the motherboard.

Combo Caps (Nichicon 12K Platinum Caps)

Matte Black PCB
A new matte black and copper color scheme.

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.

Flexible PCIe Slots
A new flexible PCIe Gen3 x1 slot design that allows users to install add-on cards of all kinds of sizes.
* The bandwidth of your devices will be limited to PCIe Gen3 x1.

Full Spike Protection
Some sensitive digital components on the motherboard are vulnerable to power surges, the excessive current may cause your system to malfunction immediately. ASRock Full Spike Protection includes various technologies to prevent your motherboard’s components from being damaged by these unexpected voltage spikes.

Live Update & APP Shop
ASRock Live Update & APP Shop is designed for your convenience. We provide various apps and support software for users to download. You can also easily optimize your system and keep your motherboard up to date with ASRock Live Update & APP Shop.

USB Key
In a world where time is money, why waste precious time everyday typing usernames to log in to Windows? Why should we even bother memorizing those foot long passwords? Nobody has time for that! Just plug in the USB Key and let your computer log in to windows automatically!

Restart to UEFI
Fast Boot is so fast that it is impossible for users to enter the UEFI setup utility during POST. Therefore, ASRock Restart to UEFI technology allows users to easily enter the UEFI setup utility automatically when turning on the PC next time. It is designed for those who constantly need to enter the UEFI setup utility.

ASRock OMG (Online Management Guard)
Limit and control your children's time spent on the internet. ASRock OMG (Online Management Guard) technology allows you to establish an internet curfew or restrict internet access at specified times. Administrators are able to schedule the starting and ending hours of internet access granted to other users.

UEFI Tech Service
Contact ASRock Tech Service by sending a support request from the UEFI setup utility if you are having trouble with your personal computer. Users may try to choose the category of the issue they have encountered, describe the problem in detail, and then attach an optional picture or log file for our technical support team.

Dehumidifier
Dampness kills most electronics, so it's a better idea to keep your personal computer dry. Now users may prevent motherboard damages due to dampness by enabling Dehumidifier. When it is enabled, the computer will power on automatically to dehumidify the system after entering S4/S5 state.

Easy Driver Installer
For users that don’t have an optical disk drive to install the drivers from our support CD, Easy Driver Installer is a handy tool in the UEFI that installs the LAN driver to your system via an USB storage device, then downloads and installs the other required drivers automatically through the internet. Completely no CD or optical disk drive required!

XFast RAM
ASRock XFast RAM fully utilizes the memory space that cannot be used under Windows® 32-bit operating systems. It shortens the loading time of previously visited websites, making web surfing faster than ever. And it also boosts the speed of Adobe Photoshop 5 times faster. Another advantage of ASRock XFast RAM is that it reduces the frequency of accessing your SSDs or HDDs in order to extend their lifespan.

HDMI
This motherboard supports HDMI™ (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) which is an interface standard for transferring uncompressed video data and delivering multi-channel audio through a single cable. Both video and audio data signals transferred through the HDMI™ interface are digital without being converted into analog, therefore it delivers the richest pictures and the most realistic sounds.

DTS Connect
Tired of listening to crappy audio that makes your ears bleed? Experience high-quality surround sound from your personal computer. DTS Connect is a blanket name for a two-part system, including DTS Interactive and DTS Neo:PC, it is used on the computer platform only, in order to convert PC audio into the DTS format.

ASRock Z170 Fatal1ty Gaming K6, Intel Z170, S 1151, DDR4, SATAe, M.2 2-Way SLi/3-Way XFire, GbE, USB3.1 A+C, ATX is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mobo, confusing SATA Arrived this morning after ordering from Scan late yesterday afternoon, quality service. Everything went together very easily, added some DDR4 RAM, i7-6700, and an M.2 SSD card, superb. The space is very tight around the CPU, my watercooling block, which isn't particularly big compared to air coolers, only just fits with a gnats nut of space between it and the RAM. Impressive BIOS in colour with mouse support. Seems easy enough to use. System runs very fast. My only gripe with this is the insane confusion around the SATA ports, it took me ages to get my head around this. To clarify it says it has 8 SATA ports which is true but nonsense. Two of them are connected and you can only use one at once (this makes no sense to me). Those two are also connected to one of the SATA Express ports and the M.2 SSD card port. If you use any one of those mentioned ports then the rest are disabled. So realistically you have: 6 SATA 1 SATA Express 1 of either; SATA, SATA Express or M.2

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good motherboard Great motherboard with really nice design. Great performance and high overclock on i7 6700k of 4.6ghz. could go higher, but don't want to damage the chip. I believe i got a lower than average chip considering most are able to get to 4.7ghz at 1.35 volts but i am happy with 4.6ghz at 1.290 volts. Cons: Since the bios has so many options to choose from it was a little hard to use and slightly complicated to users who don't have a lot of experience with overclocking, but once you get to know what to play with, its great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No drivers for win8 If you try to install new OS be aware that the killer lan will not work under win8. There are no drivers I could found online that would support windows 8 and also those included did not work. They will only work under win 7, 8.1 or 10. If I didn't had an wifi card from my old computer I would be without an internet. EPIC fail from makers EPIC. But mobo is fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be careful with windows 7 and the m.2 slot! Don't try and use this board with Windows 7. I had a computer failure and needed to put this board as a replacement into an existing Windows 7 machine. (not recommended I know). The board has a neat driver installation system in Bios which worked a treat... but the Intel driven USB ports dont work in Windows 7!!! Thank god for the PS2 port which took an old keyboard and a third party usb port I got running! From there I updated to Win 10 and everything got a lot friendlier. Despite featuring an M.2 port for the Fastest of SSD drives it is not really supported. There is no "how to" guide... Even the samsung tools for migrating your OS dont see their own product in this slot... It took 3 days of trial and error and a lot of googoling to find Macrium Reflect will help with key steps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bought this for its looks but was suprized I bought this board because of its looks more than any after hearing bad things about asrock in the past I didn't know what to expect but wow awesome board never had a single issue had it about 2 months now rock solid this is from a person who normally buy rog boards only this is better than overclocking and temps than my asus formula maximus z97 board was FIVE STAR TO ASROCK FOR THIS SOLID BUILD BOARD. I bought a i5 6400 2.7 to go with it and overclocked it to 4.3ghz with the sky oc bios
