ASRock ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming Z170 Gaming K4 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought this a couple months ago to do my upgrade build. Has what I need in a motherboard. Onboard audio is very good, was able to ditch the Soundblaster Z from my old build.

Cons: Seemed a bit unstable until I flashed the BIOS to a newer version, since then no issues at all.

Other Thoughts: My build

Pros: performance for the money is good if you're building a lower cost system. As others have said you're hard pressed to tell it's not a quad-core.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Built 3 systems for my 10-12 yr old grandsons all with this i3-4160, Gigabyte GA-H81M-HD3 motherboards, 8Gb ram, 128Gb SSD boot drives, 500Gb HDD and GTX750Ti 2Gb video cards, running Win 10 Pro x64. Plays all the games they play at med-high graphic settings with no problems.
Shows as a 4 core in Win 10 device manager, hyperthreading probably as my i7-6700k shows as an 8 core.

Pros: was supposed to work with the Optiplex GX620 I was upgrading

Cons: 1 bad stick, system would not boot if this stick was either the only one or added with working stick.

Other Thoughts: Mushkin used to be a good solid brand but reviews I read tonight show quality has gone downhill. Won't buy anything with their name on it again.
