ASRock Z87 OC Formula Motherboard Review

Rating: 9.5.

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?
