Love him or hate him, Fatal1ty (or Johnathan Wendel, as his mother calls him) continues to have his gaming moniker plastered throughout the do-it-yourself (DIY) scene on a wide range of peripherals, and somebody's buying all these products up. Apparently still relevant, the famous Fatal1ty brand has found its way onto the new ASRock/Fatal1ty X79 Professional motherboard for gamers.
"This Fatal1ty motherboard was designed to bring your gaming performance to the highest level. The Fatal1ty X79 Professional comes with a Fatal1ty Mouse Port that delivers the precise control needed to elevate your game," said Fatal1ty. "In addition to gaming functions, the board packs 4 PCIe 3.0 slots, supporting up to 4-Way SLI and 4-Way CrossFireX. This combination will make you deadly and feared in the battlefield."
Marketing jargon and Fatal1ty branding aside, there's a high-end board beneath it all. The X79 Professional features a 16+2 power phase design to help with overclocking. It uses premium gold all-solid capacitors made in Japan, supports up to DDR3-2600+ memory (OC), has eight USB 3.0 ports (four each up front and on the back), six SATA 6Gbps ports, a UEFI BIOS, and more.
