    Still in a sharing mood, ASRock has now given us a peek at yet another X99-based motherboard it plans to release at the end of this month, the X99M Killer aka the X99X Killer's little brother. As its name suggests, the X99M Killer has a micro ATX form factor but it's still quite feature-packed - three PCIe x16 slots, ten SATA 6.0 Gbps ports, one Ultra M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) connector, dual Gigabit Ethernet (Intel and Killer E2200), and Purity Sound 2 7.1-channel audio.

    ASRock's X99 board also offers two Fatal1ty mouse ports, four USB 3.0 ports, a debug LED, and even an eSATA connector, but it has to settle for four DDR4 memory slots. No price tag was announced but that should be revealed in the next couple of weeks.

    Hats off to ASRock, Its quite amazing what they can pack into such a small space considering ASUS had to start using riser boards.

    Cool stuff.

    Wonder if they'll go full line-up and put out a loaded EATX board as well.

    Niiice. This should be a it should be a solid contender, even though on the photo it almost looks like that oversized slab of a heatsink could interfere with some RAM sticks.

    Why the "Killer LAN" when INTEL is bundling the best LAN solution on the planet with this chipset, "Purity Audio" is Realtek 886 rebadged.

    Should have junked the Killer and bought Soundcore to paste on.

    Actually the Audio codec is ALC1150 with 115dB SNR DAC, EMI shielding, 600 Ohm headphones amplifier. Not to bad for an integrated sound imo.
