ASRock Fatal1ty Professional Retail Box and Bundle
The retail box for the ASRock Fatal1ty Professional motherboard is clean and to the point. At a minimum it’s eye catching for those who are able to shop for enthusiast computer components at a retail store. If your limited to etailors I suppose the packaging is rather irrelevant.
ASRock has included a viewing window underneath the front flap of the retail packaging that will give you a first glance at the new ASRock Fatal1ty Professional P67 motherboard.
The inside of the front flap covers some of the marketing features of the ASRock Fatal1ty Professional. You can see that it mentions and goes into detail on the Digital PWM design, V16+2 CPU Power phases, Fatal1ty Mouse port, Super Speed USB 3.0, expansion slots, and the premium gold capacitors used ont he Fatal1ty Professional.
The back of the ASRock Fatal1ty Professional retail packaging has no shortage of marketing text and goes into a feature by feature diagram of the board itself.
The bundle that accompanies the ASRock Fatal1ty Professional is contained within a separate box.
When I started to break down the bundle I was shocked to see ribbon cables for IDE and Floppy drives. That’s is something I can honestly say that I didn’t expect on an enthusiast level board. The bundle for the ASRock Fatal1ty Professional motherboard includes the usual suspects, six SATA cables, user manual and set up guide, a single SLI bridge, a couple of 4pin Molex to SATA power adapters, I/O shield, the above mentioned ribbon cables, and a front panel USB 3.0 adapter. A quick note about the front panel USB 3.0 adapter. If you happen to be running a case that doesn’t provide a mounting point for that sexy new SSD you are planning on using, ASRock has you covered. The front panel USB 3.0 adapter id designed to have a 2.5″ drive mounted on it! It may not be the worlds greatest feature, but it is definitely a thoughtful one on the part of ASRock.
