ASRock has picked up some impressive branding recently but the question of performance remains.  They have been in the motherboard business for a while but have always been considered a bargain brand by most enthusiasts.  [H]ard|OCP reviewed their flagship Z87 board recently to see if perhaps it is time to reconsider that impression.  With three PCIe 3.0 16x slots and four PCIe 2.0 1x slots it does seem a high end motherboard and the inclusion of an onboard KillerNIC may also attract some attention.  If this board really wants to attract attention it is the overclocking and stability which really matter and seeing as how it finished the review wearing a gold medal you can get a rough idea of how that testing went.  Read the full review to see ASRock's impressive Killer Fatal1ty board in action.

"If you’re a long time reader of HardOCP then you probably know we are not huge fans of ASRock as a brand overall. Recently we purchased a new motherboard to spend some time with the ASRock Z87 KILLER FATAL1TY, and as a result our opinions are changing. Is that change for the better or for worse?"
