    Default ASRock 990FX Fatal1ty Killer and Mouse Port Issue

    Just wanted to give a heads up on this issue I noticed with this new 990FX Fatal1ty Killer mobo I just got.

    When using the Mouse Fatal1ty Mouse Port I noticed that it causes my mouse to have issues when using the Scroll Wheel. Basically if I use the Scroll the mouse becomes nonfunctional until I either change the DPI Settings or unplug/replug it in. It basically freezes the mouse.

    I noticed that this started happening after I installed the F-Stream Software and opened it. I think the part of that software that deals with the Fatal1ty Mouse Port is causing it. Like it is Conflicting with the actual Mouse's Software or something along those lines.
    The ASRock site does list that this mouse port has limitations. The limitations it list are below. I am guessing that is why my mouse had issues when the software was installed and opened up.
    1. Some USB mice may not support 1000 Hz mouse polling rate.
    2. The Fatal1ty mouse port does not support USB 2.0 mouse.
    3. The Fatal1ty mouse port may not support some wireless USB mice.
    4. The Fatal1ty mouse port does not support the USB mouse which is connected to the USB hub.

    My workaround for this is to just not use the mouse in that Port. I plugged my mouse in the USB 3.0 slot that I had open and it works fine now.

    By the way my mouse is a Perixx MX-2000 if anyone is curious which is a USB 2.0 mouse.
    If anyone is also wondering why I plugged my mouse in a USB 3.0 slot, it was the only open slot I had at the time. USB 3.0 is backwards compatible after all so it does not matter. :)

    Anyways just a heads up for anyone out there that has or is getting this mobo. I just wanted to mention this so that people would know about it. :)

    With this mouse in the Fatal1ty port have you tried lowering the Polling Rate in F-Stream?

    And yes, I do see that your MX-2000 supports 1000Hz polling, but ...........

    Would be useful if ASRock listed compatible mice. The spec is confusing, it says the fatal1ty mouse port is usb 2.O but elsewhere that it it is not for a usb 2.O mouse.

    The reason for buying this sort of mobo is to make best use of things like gaming mice, the whole gaming area is confusing enough without this sort of hassle.

    I'm still deciding on which mobo to buy, the fatal1ty price and would allow me to buy extra RAM or an SSD, but if a basic component like a mouse is going to give trouble then I'll maybe give it a miss.

    Any thoughts on a stable gaming mobo?

    On the Specs page the Fatal1ty Mouse Port is listed specifically as being USB 2.0:

    Code:
    Rear Panel I/O
    - 1 x Fatal1ty Mouse Port (USB 2.0)
    Without flaming, regardless if ASRock or any other board manufacturer listed compatible mice there would be those that felt the list was short in not listing their favorite one. Never mind new mice come out at so fast a rate that the list would become outdated sooner rather than later. Mice and keyboards get replaced by gamers at an alarming rate anyways always looking for that one advantage over others.

    Besides, isn't that the fun half of building our own vs buying one already built? j/k

    Dear Wardog - Compatibility issues have been with us for a long time, it is standard for board manufacturers to list compatible CPU and memory. If suppliers want to sell then they test and submit results to get on lists.

    I am buying the system for somebody else to build - so in there are support issues to consider.

    Gaming mice are not trivial costs and if they don't work they are a real pain, bad enough when a bog standard one gives problems.

    l think that badly documented components are symptomatic of other issues and on further consideration I have excluded the ASRock from my list possible options.

    Probably a smart move move on your part knowing you're the support person to get the support calls.

    Good luck
