ASRock Fatal1ty Z97X Killer LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great board, Possibilities are endless with UEFI bios.
Latest Bios update by me!

Intel RST(e) OROM and EFI SataDriver
OROM IRST SATA ver. = "updated"
EFI IRST SATA ver. = "updated"
Intel OROM Vbios and EFI GOP Driver
Intel OROM Intel PXE ver. 1022 = "no change"
OROM QCM-Atheros PXE ver. = "updated"
Intel Microcode Update
Microcode ID 0326C31A rev. 1A 05/23/2014 = "updated"

Cons: F-Stream tuning app needs some work as some fuctions crash the application. hope ASRock fixes this soon.
Fan tuning is still a bit buggy as well when manually adjusting the speeds. Please ASRock fix the apps!

Other Thoughts: if you brick you're board I am not responsible! you did something wrong. As I have had no problems with this custom update at all. You will have to put all you're setting back as updating the bios will clear all you're settings in the bios. and as always enjoy! :)

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's portable power to recharge or run usb compatible devices. Aluminum casing is nice. pocket size.

Cons: Power button useless, doesn't seem to do anything.
Device is supposed to automatically shutoff once fully charged. It does not! Seems cheaply constructed. seems like the junk you see on the counters at gas stations and at walgreens and cvs. spend $40 and throw it away. then hate yourself for wasting $40.
Instructions are a joke.

Other Thoughts: Unit does work aside from the power button issue and the
slap dash instruction sheet. as for would I stand by this and say it's a good buy or reliable? No I would not. this is one of those items someone gets you at xmas and you try to look up info on and can find nothing. I would take a hard pass on this! it's fine as a gift I guess. but to buy for yourself absolutely not! And sorry Scud but this unit doesn't even look as nice as your previous models. I wanted to rave about this product but I just can't do it. One egg only cause it does power devices and charges. 4 eggs taken cause power button does nothing, instructions a joke, item not even listed on their own website yet, cheap construction other than the aluminum.

5 out of 5 eggs Ram, Bios Bloat, Water cooling issues! 06/16/2014

This review is from: ASRock Fatal1ty Z97X Killer LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: No problems at all with ram detection! What bloat in the bios? even section in the bios serves a function, that is tied to the CPU's capabilities. look at the processor specs and datasheet. Do your homework people! as for water cooling, This chipset was only just release back in may so give it time.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Those reviewers bad mouthing the auto detecting of their ram. there is a reason motherboard companies have a list of supported vendors for memory and other add-ons.
so check the site for the list and inform yourself. It's not ASRock's fault you didn't do you're homework. Yes computers have come a long way since I went to school for electronics and computer technology. but the one thing they can't do anticipate ignorance. garbage in garbage out. Just because you're first board detected the memory doesn't mean the new one will. even if it's the same brand of board. hense the list.
it can very well very from board to board.
