ASRock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 Motherboard Review

ASRock's Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 motherboard doesn't pack in all the bells and whistles, but it does include a very solid amount for the price.

ASRock has many Intel Z270-based motherboards spanning across almost every price bracket. Today, I will look at one of ASRock's mainstream gaming motherboards, under their Fatal1ty brand, the Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6.

While I already looked at a mainstream ASRock motherboard with similar specifications, the Z270 Extreme4, the Z270 Gaming K6 is better equipped not only for gaming but also overclocking. The motherboard aims to give users a bit more than a basic, albeit loaded, Z270 motherboard with more unique ASRock features and a bit more style.

Many users asked for simple white and black color themes, and many vendors, including ASRock, have delivered. However, some users still want the motherboard to have a color theme, red is one of the most popular choices, and ASRock's Fatal1ty line seems to stick with the tried and true red and black theme. Don't worry; they didn't forget the RGB LEDs.

Without further delay, let's begin our Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 journey!

The Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 offers dual Intel NICs, USB 3.1 type-A and type-C, two M.2 slots, eight SATA6Gb/s ports, and it even has a VGA output for the processor's integrated graphics.


The Z270 Gaming K6 costs $169.99.
