Package and Contents
If you have read any of my reviews before, you'd know that I sometimes can go into the psychology of the images and other marketing materials on the box. After all, it is the first impression (other than reviews of course) the customer gets of a product in your traditional box store.
For the ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Professional the first thing I thought was "wow, it is really red". After that I sort of chuckled at the pretentious image of Fatal1ty on the front of the box. Those two things aside, the box actually looks pretty clean.
Under the smirking image of Fatal1ty we find...the story of Fatal1ty. Ok, that was a little much for me, but it is ok, as I have a feeling most of you will not read the whole thing either. Do not get me wrong here; Fatal1ty has done very well and I doubt I would last too terribly long in a head to head game with him, but it is a little much.
Fortunately, underneath this tale is some more important information. More specifically, we find out that the Fatal1ty P67 has a digital PWM module, a 16+2 phase setup for CPU power and gold caps. We also get some detail on just what the Fatal1ty Mouse port is.
If you are not interested in all of that, you can always just glance the other way and get a nice look at the Fatal1ty motherboard.
The back of the box is a little more subdued and also offers a decent diagram of the board. Of course, ASRock would not miss out on a chance to show off a few more features (or even the same ones twice).
After you remove the outer box and then open the inner box, we find a very nice selection of accessories. There are the usual cables (including a couple that are labelled as "Designed for SATA3") power connectors, manuals, driver discs and even a USB 3 break out box that has room for a 2.5-inch drive (perfect for an SSD).
It is really not a bad haul at all.
