ASrock P76 extreme6 vs fatality professional

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
OK, I'll ask my current doubts in a new thread.
Not jumping on the z68 bandwagon since i have read enough and it would be detrimental for me rather than improving.

I'm undecided mostly between P67 Extreme6 and P67 fatality professional.

30€ price difference (not a big deal in my book)
Extreme6 seems more stable: true or false?
The "gaming mouse port": gimmick or it really helpe accouracy? I have an ikari laser and i do use the computer to play games 50% of the time.
Better colors and look but wont show in closed case
Irrelevant the ide port
IDK for the guy in the fatality bios skin
Unfortunately realtek LAN for both mobos

Does the fatality has better power section?
My goal is a ~4.5ghz daily at <1.3 vcore.

Rest of the config as follow (it doesnt seem to have compatibility issues for what i have read):
-Corsair 800D case
-2600K
-Noctua D14 with two 140mm fans
2x4gb G.Skill ripjaws X (1600 or 2133 version depending on price and avail when ordering)
-gtx280 (to be replaced after summer with gtx590)
-OCZ Vertex 3 SSD 120gb for OS
-Intel 320 ssd 300gb for documents and important data
-various 1TB and 2TB hdd all WD GP for mass storage and backup
-LG BD-r sata
-Silverstone Zeus 750 psu
-ps/2 IBM keyboard (from my first pc biggrin.gif:D:D and never changing it!)
-ikari laser usb mouse
-Samsung 2693hm monitor

Afaik, the only difference is the heatsink size and the aesthetics. The heatsink on the Fatal1ty has been scaled down a bit so you can actually use the first PCIe x1 slot. On the Extreme6, it's huge and blocks any potential use for it, so they scaled it down. I feel that the Fatal1ty board is mostly gimmicks

There is one issue though: the "northbridge" heatsink extends too far downward and will block anything but the shortest device from being installed in the top PCI-E x1 slot, which means pretty much everything. PCI-E audio card? Don't bother, put it in the bottom expansion slot. But what about going SLI/Crossfire and adding in another expansion device? Then forget about a discrete audio card, it probably won't fit. Admittedly this scenario is unlikely, but tweaking the heatsink design would have avoided these potential problems to begin with.

We're pleased to report that ASRock has thankfully corrected a problem that was found on the Extreme6 board: the "northbridge" heatsink was too large and prevented any discrete card from being used in the top PCI-E x1 slot. The Fatal1ty's design has made the heatsink a low profile solution, so there will no longer be any conflicts.

It really comes down to looks imo. I went with the Fatal1ty because of the color scheme and because I thought it looked really unique.

If you don't mine looking at Mr. Fatal1ty all day long, the Fatal1ty should be the best option IMO. As Above ^^ said, it comes down to looks. Hahaha

Well, i keep the case closed and that side points to the wall, so even if i would put a window, i couldnt see it. And I dont plan to spend all time in the bios... i hope biggrin.gif

Tnx, alwang17 -wont use that slot anyway.

The molex connector near to cpu is missing in the fatality, so there should be SOME difference electrically. Not sure what's best for daily.

PS: I just found this:
Quote:
Perhaps one of the most intriguing features of the board is its Fatal1ty USB 2.0 mouse port that allows you to tune the polling rate from 125Hz to 1,000Hz (Fatal1ty, BTW, prefers a 500Hz poll rate). It’s a cool feature for folks who really need to tune their mouse to match a particular game’s frame rate. For Joe 12-pack playing pickup games of Call of Duty: Black Ops, we wouldn’t expect miracles. More troubling: We tried several top-flight gaming mice, including a SteelSeries iKari, CM Storm twin-laser Sentinel Advance, and a Microsoft SideWinder, and none of the mice—which incidentally feature adjustable DPI rates—would work with the port.
The port did, however, work with an older, non-adjustable Razer Pro and a $6 Dell mouse.

Nice lol tongue.gif
Now I'm heading to the ex6 unless i find the fatality has better OC-ability with low vcore, which i doubt.
