ASRock X79 Fatal1ty Professional + i7 3960X | 4.8GHz OC and UEFI Demo

ASRock X79 Fatal1ty Professional

Recently did some testing on the new ASRock X79 Fatal1ty Professional, so I decided to do a video on the UEFI BIOS as well as a quick look at overclocking on the motherboard. The ASRock X79 Fatal1ty Professional features a 16+2 DigiPower VRM design, support for 4 DIMMs of DDR3 2600+ memory, 4 way SLI or CrossFire, and much, much more!

In this video I overclock the Intel Core i7 3960X Extreme Edition to 4.8GHz on the ASRock X79 Fatal1ty Professional motherboard, set the Kingston HyperX Genesis DDR3 2133MHz memory to use the XMP profile, and I do a run through of the ASRock UEFI bios as well.

I conclude the video with a bit of stress testing using AIDA 64 Extreme Edition.
