ASRock Z370 Fatal1ty Gaming K6 Motherboard Review

ASRock Z370 Fatal1ty Gaming K6

The new Z370 chipset motherboards may not be what everyone wanted when it comes to the new Coffee Lake CPUs. However, our reviews of the i5-8400 and the i7-8700K really surprised us at just how fast the new Intel hardware really is. Sure, Z370 offers no innovation over Z270, but with the new 6-core CPUs installed, they’re some of the fastest gaming hardware on the market today. With that in mind, we’ve got yet another premium gaming motherboard to test today, the ASRock Z370 Fatal1ty Gaming K6!

Equipped with the upgraded 1151 socket for 8th Gen Intel Coffee Lake, the K6 is packed full of high-end features. It supports quad-SLI and 3-way CrossFireX for extreme gaming builds. You’ll also find very high-quality sound hardware, negating the need for external sound processing. There’s a huge amount of storage options, including M.2 and Optane support. If that wasn’t enough, there’s dual LAN too, which certainly couldn’t hurt if you’re a serious online gamer.
