ASRock Z87 OC Formula Motherboard Review

Review Score:
27 Flares 27 Flares ×

Built for hardened overclockers, does ASRock’s Z87 OC Formula have what it takes to compete with the likes of MSI’s Z87 XPower and Asus’ Maximus VI Extreme?

Utilising an E-ATX form factor and packed with overclocking-geared enhancements, ASRock’s Z87 OC Formula represents the company’s motherboard designed specifically for hardened tweakers and enthused benchmarkers. With a price tag that is over £50 less than some competing brands’ flagship products, the Z87 OC Formula could be a hit with overclockers to whom money is harder to come by.

Featuring an actively-cooled CPU power delivery system, the capacity for four graphics cards, and an onboard monitoring kit, is ASRock’s set of overclocker-orientated features enough for the Z87 OC Formula to shine amongst the competition?

    I just ordered one, hard to find here though, they need to work on their distribution

    They are always well priced, they dont seem any worse than MSI, GB or ASUS either in my own tests, but it all depends on what board you get I guess.

    Not the Formula I am looking forward to but I might go with this after trying out Asrock’s Fatal1ty Z77 and loving it. Not to mention that 9.5 rating.

    That fan though >.<

    It's forcing me to wait for the other Formula (VI) before I can decide.

    Thanks for the review ^^

    Got the ac version of this from Overclockers abour four weeks ago. Just waiting on my custom cable extensions to arrive from Pexon to get my build started. If it is half as good as my X79Extreme11 in my main rig it will be epic
