ASRock is a company focused on bringing performance motherboards to the market, and with the Intel X99 chipset, they have done just that. I previously reviewed many of ASRock's X99 offerings and today I take a look at one of their "second" generation X99 motherboards with some more refined features.

The Fatal1ty X99X Killer/3.1 carries a really long feature list, including Ultra M.2, Purity Sound 2, XOC socket, and of course USB 3.1 as the model name suggests. This board looks to appease builders who want a gaming centric board with a lot of USB 3.1 connectivity. Follow me as I venture into the world of the Fatal1ty X99X Killer/3.1.

There are some features that really stick out with ASRock's Fatal1ty X99X Killer/3.1; 128GB DDR4 memory support with ECC and 12K Nichicon capacitors are two that top the list in terms of uniqueness. Most other X99 motherboards only support 64GB of memory, but ASRock has taken the server approach with their entire X99 lineup, which means that Xeons are fully supported as are the technologies that come with them. While this isn't a server board, many of the features are aimed at workstations, such as the USB DOM connector which is used for very expensive software programs that require a USB drive for authentication.
