ASRock Z170M OC Formula the Only Motherboard to Support G.Skill DDR4-4333 Memory

Not in the wake of Poseidon, but the intense quests of DDR4 memory overclocking, G.SKILL has released its Trident Z DDR4 4333MHz memory modules. Apparently, these overpowered memory sticks named after the destructive weapon of Neptune are meant to operate at a brain melting 4333MHz frequency, however they are not destined to be wielded by just any mortal, currently only ASRock's overclocking oriented motherboard - Z170M OC Formula has what it takes to support these legendary memory DIMMs.

Frank, marketing manager from G.SKILL further illustrated, "G.SKILL Trident Z DDR4 4333MHz memory kit is specifically designed for extreme overclocking on the latest ASRock Z170M OC Formula motherboard and 6th Gen Intel Core Processors. Using only specially selected performance components, it is the speediest DDR4 memory kit on the market today that pushes the Z170 platform to its extreme limits."
ASRock Z170M OC Formula might be an mATX sized Skylake motherboard, yet the compact PCB layout possesses a lot more computing power than your average build. Designed by the enigmatic overclocker Nick Shih, it features a server grade ten layer PCB design that results in interference-less signals, which is especially beneficial for memory signals. Overclockers who are dead serious about breaking limits may find ASRock Z170M OC Formula on Newegg.

Only Z170M. Not Z170 OC Formula ?
Kaby Lake IMC may bring RAM speed to 5Ghz.:clap:

cool, you can run your memory at 4333Mhz and run your CPU at 4333Mhz, very good for people with OCD.

OCD? As in, overclocking disorder? :toast:

Except yellow/black and red/silver on a motherboard don't match, AT ALL. Epic fail.

Some people don't look at the components. When I built my main rig I spent so much time to build a red and black system only for me to get 2 Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X OC cards which happened to be yellow and black. It's kinda sad, I know but in the end it gave me great performance. And yes, I know I could have gone for ASUS cards but this was at 290/290x aftermarket cooler launch so they were quite scarce especially since they were being picked up by people in the mining community.

The Z170M has the DIMM slots right beside each other and as close as possible to the CPU. The larger Z170 OC Formula has 4x DIMM slots which hamper high speed ram due to the trace length.

Also, the other board is a T-Topology design, while this one uses daisy chaining, which makes it a little easier to reach the speeds. The same design differences exist between the Maximus VIII Extreme and the VIII Impact and the latter of these two clocks better as well (4200+ easily enough)
