ASRock Announces X299 OC Formula Motherboard

Unlike other motherboards that are designed by engineers who don't have adequate experience in extreme overclocking or have never participated in an OC event, X299 OC Formula is the only motherboard in the market that is designed by a genuine overclocker, Nick Shih, who is hands down one of the most talented overclockers alive. ASRock is confident to say that X299 OC Formula is ideally focused on overclocking exclusively, without any other useless features, designs or gimmicks.

Take full control of your system. Hardware components are incredibly the most important. There're plenty of attractive sweeteners to make the newborn X299 OC Formula a more enticing upgrade. A rock-solid CPU VRM design which boasts a whopping 13 power phase to offer unmatched overclocking capabilities and enhanced performance with the lowest temperature. An additional 2 power phase that ensure memory area's stability. Dr. MOS solution that is optimized for monitoring current and temperature of each phase, thus delivering neater and smoother power to the system. An integrated Hyper BCLK Engine III controller that provides a wider range of frequency and more precise clock waveforms. XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsink/Heatpipe design that effectively take away heat from the MOSFET, thus allowing this mainboard to support up to 450W CPU with airflow condition.
Get the maximum memory performance! The X299 OC Formula is dedicatedly designed with a special 8-layer PCB layout that makes it possible to support Quad-Channel memory technology (one dimm per channel). Users may expect to reach a jaw dropping DDR4 4600Mhz frequency. ASRock's OC master Nick Shih can even rocket DDR4 memory's performance to an amazing 4800Mhz merely with air cooling on X299 OC Formula.

What's more exciting, this superb overclocking motherboard can even meet the fastest XMP profile modules. ASRock is all trilled to announce that our X299 OC Formula is the world's first and only motherboard that supports the soon-to-be-announced DDR4 4500 XMP profile DRAM modules with Intel Kaby Lake-X processors. DRAM makers such as Corsair, G.Skill and Team Groups are all working closely with ASRock to let extreme geeks enjoy the maximum memory performance from your rig!

"ASRock is dedicated to provide the motherboard for overclocker community to lead them into the next era of PC performance," said James Lee, Vice President, Sales and Marketing Division, ASRock. "We are greatly confident the ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard can push the CPU and memory frequency to the limit."

"ASRock and CORSAIR share the same goal to continue to raise the performance bar. We are delighted to cooperate with ASRock to bring out the world's first 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-4500 production kit, using ultra-high performance ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard." Commented by Harry Butler, Director, PR & Marketing Communications.

Just like its predecessor from the OC Formula Series, X299 OC Formula is heavily armed with overclocking features such as ASRock's exclusive Formula Kits (Power Kit, Connector Kit and Cooling Kit). There're some overclocking credentials onboard as well. Retry button to restart system immediately with cold boot while Reset button to quickly restart the system without cold boot. BGF Button to enforce system to boot as default but still keep BIOS setting if pressing the button during power cycle.

Why put a right-angle 6-pin power connector and then a straight-angle ATX power connector?

The OC Formula was very bold black and yellow. Is this the first version away from the yellow color scheme?

The type of idiot capable of shoving 6-pin power connectors into 24-pin power connectors, and vice versa, isn't going to be deterred by a simple precautionary measure like that...

Don't You love it how an OC oriented motherboard has barely appropriate coolers on VRM and chipset?

I miss those big, finned bastards that actually did the job properly...

Chipset will be fine.

So will the vrms. There are two heatsinks connected via heatpipe. ;)
