ASRock Reveals X99M Killer mATX Motherboard
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
A couple of days ago ASRock showed us their X99X Killer motherboard, and today they’re showing us it’s little brother. They being in the mood to share is great for us and we’re getting a sneak peak at the ASRock X99M Killer mATX board. The minimized size has cost the board half its memory slots compared to the big brother, but it doesn’t let down on features in other areas. And lets face it, four RAM slots is more then enough for most people.
As the name suggests, we’re of course seeing the X99 chipset as well as the LGA2011 Socket. With three PCI Express x16 slots and 10 SATA 6Gbps ports, this little brother has nothing to be ashamed off. One Ultra M.2 connector, two Gigabit Ethernet controller (Intel and KillerNIC) and a Purity Sound 2 7.1 Audio chip are also found on this board. The double-digit error displays for quick bug-fixing is always a nice thing to see on any motherboard.
The IO area offers two USB 2.0 Fatal1ty mouse ports, four normal USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA and two Gigabit RJ45 ports and a dual PS2 mouse and keyboard port. Of course there’s also the five 3.5 mm and optical audio ports. Another four USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports can be connected to the on-board headers.
