Vortez have published their latest review looking at the ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming K4 motherboard which is designed to be a budget board for gamers.

The ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming K4 is our first look at Intel Z170 from ASRock’s standpoint. This motherboard joins ASRock’s gaming lineup and can be regarded as a lower-tier offering.

ASRock has made very few alterations to the styling between Z97 and Z170 and while this may not be a terrible thing, we feel the overall look is a bit outdated and lacks the finesse we’ve seen from their main lineup of motherboards. Visual appearance is always a subjective element for any product review, what do you think of the styling? Let us know in the comments below.

Placing the K4 into the testing arena by putting the board through our benchmark suite highlighted some good stock performance figures. Unfortunately, trying to apply a manual overclock to our 6700K proved impossible – we even tried updating the BIOS to the latest and still had issues nudging the clock speed up.
