"Even before I took over the Motherboard category here at TweakTown, I'd been using ASRock boards for a while since my VGA and RAM testbeds both used them. ASRock make some great boards, but there was always one little problem with them. Aesthetically they never looked great and considering what a shallow world we live in these days, the overall look of the boards were probably a little bit of a downer for some people.
Jump forward a bit and we got the release of the Fatal1ty line of boards; we saw a shift to those black PCBs with the accents of red. This was a really nice step in the right direction, but in the event you didn't want to be stared down by Fatal1ty in the BIOS, you were unfortunately out of luck when it came to other options. Jump forward yet again and we have the launch of the new Gen3 series boards from ASRock. When I saw pictures of these boards I was really "Wowed" by the look of them. Before we have a closer look at the board itself, though, we need to check out the package."
