What you’ve never understood about your computer is that it is scared to death of water, H2O, humidity or whatever you’d like to name it. And even though you do not see the water, actually there may be lots of excessive moist in the air killing your motherboard silently and slowly. No, your motherboard doesn’t melt when in contact with water like the wicked witch of the west, but it dies of short circuit. Luckily, ASRock has a new High Density Glass Fabric PCB design that reduces the gaps between the PCB layers to protect the motherboard against electrical shorts caused by humidity.
More Precise, More Efficient
Unlike traditional motherboards that use analog power, this motherboard uses a next generation digital PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) design, which provides CPU Vcore voltage more efficiently and smoothly, so that the stability and lifespan of the motherboard is greatly enhanced.
16+2 CPU Power Phase
The Fatal1ty Series motherboard is designed with a 16+2 Power Phase, featuring sturdy components and completely smooth power delivery to the CPU. The X79 Professional Series offers unmatched overclocking capability and enhanced performance with the lowest temperatures for PC gaming enthusiasts.
Fatal1ty Mouse Port
Fatal1ty Mouse Port is a customizable technology for PC gamers that is a part of F-Stream. After plugging the USB mouse into the Fatal1ty Mouse Port and running F-Stream, gamers can use Fatal1ty’s personal preferred mouse polling rate at 500 Hz. F-Stream also provides the flexibility for gamers to adjust the mouse polling rate from 125 Hz to 1000 Hz. This is helpful for professional gamers to experience smoother game play and faster response time to the mouse.
Limitation: 1. Some USB mice may not support 1000 Hz mouse polling rate. 2. The Fatal1ty mouse port does not support USB 2.0 mouse. 3. The Fatal1ty mouse port may not support some wireless USB mice. 4. The Fatal1ty mouse port does not support the USB mouse which is connected to the USB hub.
