ASRock debuts Z77 OC Formula motherboards

The Taiwanese ASRock has officially announced the Z77 OC Formula motherboard – designed specifically for overclockers.

As the name suggests the motherboard is built around Intel’s latest Z77 chipset and fully supports all current Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge chips. Unlike most other motherboards, however, the Z77 OC Formula offers exceptional overclocking capabilities (or so ASRock says) and this is why the mobo has been enhanced in several ways. First, the board features a 12+4 phase DigiPower VRM that uses high-current chokes, tantalum capacitors and active MOSFET cooling. There’s also a surprising 8-phase VRM that powers the memory ensuring you won’t get voltage drops ever when tweaking either the CPU or the memory. Finally a 40 mm fan cools the chipset.

The ASRock Z77 OC Formula also offers four DDR3 DIMM slots for DDR3-3000+ memory with a total capacity of 32 GB, two independent PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots (working at x8/x8 when in SLI or CrossFire), one PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot and two PCI-E 2.0 x1 slots. Six SATA 3.0 ports, four SATA 2.0 ports, provide storage. There also are a HDMI port, Ethernet and an 8-channel on-board audio solution. The board supports ASRock’s Xfast 555 technology too.

Pricing and availability are unknown.
