ASRock is a company focused on bringing performance motherboards to the market, and with the Intel X99 chipset, they have done just that. For the X99 chipset, ASRock has three major series; Extreme, Overclocking, and Gaming. Each series carries differentiated features aimed at maximizing the potential user experience for each of the categories. In the case of the Fatal1ty X99 Professional, ASRock has equipped the board with premium gaming features.
Like most of ASRock's high-end X99 lineup, the Fatal1ty X99 Professional has a 12 phase 1300W capable VRM, 12K Nichicon Japanese capacitors, Purity Audio 2, and huge heat sinks to cool everything down. The board boasts all of ASRock's premium features followed by a very long list of gaming features.
This board is one of few ASRock X99 motherboards to carry 4-Way SLI/CrossFireX capabilities, dual M.2 connectors (4x PCI-E 3.0 and 4x PCI-E 2.0), mini PCI-E, and dual NICs. The board also has a wide variety of overclocking features just like the X99 OC Formula, as well as a slew of gaming features such as a special mouse port with adjustable polling rate from 125 to 1000 Hz.
The Fatal1ty X99 Professional is $326 on Newegg at the time of writing which is in the high-end price range when it comes to X99 motherboards. The board does carry a ton of features for the price, and the quality is in line with other offerings in the same price category.
