Fatal1ty-branded LGA1155 Motherboards in the Making

Leading professional gamer Fatal1ty has branded all kinds of PC hardware, including peripherals, headsets, sound cards, graphics cards, and even motherboards made by erstwhile Abit. Motherboards with the Fatal1ty branding are making a comeback, this time under the charge of ASUS. It is reported that a new manufacturer is designing some socket LGA1155 motherboards based on the Intel P67 chipset using the Fatal1ty branding. The company will show off its latest motherboards at CES 2011, which will also be the time when Intel unveils its 2011 Core processor family. Socket LGA1155 processors, coupled with Intel P67 platform is the key segment that targets gamers.

UPDATE: The board in question is made by ASRock, it's called Fatal1ty P67. It features a high-end VRM, 3-way NVIDIA SLI/CrossFire capability, a high-grade 16-phase digital CPU VRM, a unique USB port that automatically steps up polling rate of gaming mice, THX audio, four SATA 6 Gb/s, and two USB 3.0 ports. Fatal1ty detailed the board himself, in the TweakTown article linked below.

It is not a ASUS board, I can confirm that.
Just designed right? I hope it isn't AsRock, I don't want this gamin' retardo's name on quality products.

Looking at the Lotes socket, two-type cooler mounting holes, and the fact that it's the only other manufacturer with black+red scheme, I think this is EVGA.

Looks like you're gonna be unhappy then; it is AsRock that has teamed up with him.

*Shakes fists!*

:banghead:

Actually, I'm not that annoyed. AsRock make great boards with awesome innovation so I'll be interested to see how these boards turn out. As well as that red & black is my favourite colour scheme.

Because of the way the one is when i look at that picture i just see fat al and that just makes me think of this I'm pretty sure that was not what asus was aiming for :roll:

Personally i never intend to have any Fatal1ty branded hardware as normally the exact same product is available without the branding for much less.
his fat........ :roll:

Looks like the current generation of Asus-ROG boards. The new LGA1155 Asus-ROG boards have slightly different heatsinks.

I've can't recall any Fatal1crap product that I've liked but this one doesn't seem too bad.

You know I really want to Photoshop a dick right by Fatal1ty's face, but I know I will get banned for it.

Anywho here is the closest I can get.



At least we know why they call him FATal1ty.

The board looks really well made and I think it's going to be excellent.
I don't know why so many of you are crying just because it got branded with some kid's name, it could be worse :laugh:

I bet he dropped the board after that photo and asked for a cheez-burger.

I think Sarah Palin is a GMILF.

It's a bad thing simply because either these boards will be high-priced to pay Mr Fatal1ty, or they will skimp on the parts used in it to keep the price low.


It's one or the other, and neither makes my wallet happy.

Hmmm..watched interview @ Tweaktown...not a good choice of sppokesperson, methinks. He was very unprepared.

Also, the mentioned $250 price tagtells me it may be a good board, with $50 added on for "The Man".


I'll also reserve judgement on the final product itself. It actually interests me a fair bit, as it's the features that make or break a board, IMHO.

everyone is busy dissing FAT guy, and noone is actually looking at the board itself :shadedshu

board looks nice yes, lets hope it will perform better than it looks, but again, its ASRock, when did they ever made exceptional performing boards

Look up the history of ASRock. They are (or were) a subsidiary of ASUS. Might answer a few Q's

I pWnt failtality last year so bad he went into hiding for a while, seems the kid grew some ballz and decided to "come out to play-ee-yay" again.

.joke above.

Why's everyone so hostile to the dude? Just 'cause he can whip your asses in most games? :p


So he wants to use his name on a few products, so what? Who cares? It's like you've been personally insulted by a leper. You people waste way too much time on something this silly. Grow up!

Who cares?
The fact that products with his brand on it tends to be ridiculously priced makes us care.
This is ruining a potentially great product.
