Conclusions

The ASRock Fatal1ty Z97X Killer/3.1 is a good mid-range motherboard, targeted to the user who is building a computer using a “Haswell” (fourth-generation) or “Broadwell” (fifth-generation) “Core i” processor, with up to three video cards, and wants the new USB 3.1 ports.

Besides these new ports, other highlights of this motherboard include the high-end audio interface, the high-end network interface, the support for M.2 modules and SATA Express devices, and a voltage regulator with high-end components.

The support for up to three video cards in SLI or CrossFire is very welcome by the user who wants to build a gaming PC, even if it has not a high-end slot configuration like more expensive motherboards.

In short, the ASRock Fatal1ty Z97X Killer/3.1 is a motherboard with excellent features and a good price point, being a good option for anyone who is building a powerful computer for work or gaming, but does not intend to spend a small fortune in a high-end motherboard.
