"Not too long ago we had the pleasure of covering ASRock’s mid-range offering, the Z77 Extreme6. Since then, ASRock have continued to release new motherboards to fit each market segment, including the board we have in front of us today, the Z77 OC Formula. Geared towards overclockers and tweakers, the Z77 OC Formula sports both air and watercooled VRMs, 12 CPU power phases, an 8-layer Copper PCB, dual stack MOSFETs, Multi-Filter caps and a whole slew of other features and benefits, this new board promises to be the best performing board from ASRock that we’ve seen to date. As an overclocker, I love to see boards like this. Anything that can help increase stability or achieve clock speeds at lower voltages gets a big grin from me. I usually spend more time getting the last drop of performance out of my components than I actually spend utilizing said performance, so having a product like this to play with is like Christmas come early."
