The ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming K6+ is a very complete motherboard, targeted to the enthusiast that is building a gamer computer or workstation, using a sixth generation (“Skylake”) Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 CPU, but do not want to spend a small fortune on a high-end motherboard.

Actually, offering a high-end audio and network interfaces, eight USB 3.0 ports, two USB 3.1 ports, eight SATA-600 ports (supporting up to two SATA Express connectors), and an M.2 slot (accepting both SATA-600 and PCI Express 3.0 x4 SSDs), the only thing that lacks on the Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming K6+ to be called a high-end motherboard is a slot configuration that could support SLI with three or four video cards and Crossfire with four video cards.

The motherboard also comes with an amazing panel with two USB 3.1 ports (one Type A and one Type C) to be installed at a 5.25” bay, using a SATA Express connection. Notice that there is another version, the Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming K6 (without the “+”) that is the same motherboard, but does not come with this panel.

So, if you are building a desktop computer based on a sixth generation Intel Core i CPU, and don’t intend to install more than two video cards, the ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming K6+ is a great motherboard.
