Packaging & First Look

Having the Fatal1ty branding – the packaging and items inside have the Jonathan Wendel insignia printed on them. The packaging opens out to give consumers more information on the “Fatal1ty Story” and other key features such as Digital PWM Design and 12+6 Phase Power Design. Not only do we have more information though, there is also a window given a first glimpse of the actual motherboard within the packaging.

The Fatal1ty packaging certainly catches the eye

Within the packaging we have 2 boxes. One box has the accessories bundle and the other the motherboard itself. Included in the accessories bundle we have:

• 4x SATA 3Gbps Cables
• 4x SATA 6Gbps Cables
• 3.5mm Audio Cable
• DVI to HDMI Adapter
• Molex to SATA Adapter
• IDE & Floppy Cables
• USB 3.0 Front Panel – 2x USB 3.0 ports
• Rigid SLI Bridge (2 cards)
• Driver CD
• Documentation – User Manual/Installation Guide

The included items within the bundle

The other box, as mentioned features the Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 motherboard with a plastic lid. A brief first glimpse reveals a very eye-catching motherboard. Overall the packaging for this product has been very well thought out and as with the moniker, is delivered in a very professional manner.

With the Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 out of its packaging we can finally take a good look at this motherboard. Being endorsed by Jonathan ‘Fatal1ty’ Wendel we have the customary black and red colour-scheme and of course being Gen3 we have the gold solid CAPs. We’ve seen the written specifications of this board and now it’s time to take a closer look at these features.
