ASRock Unveils Z170M OC Formula Mainboard

ASRock came into the market with a new small-sized overclocking-oriented mainboard. Entitled Z170M OC Formula, the model is designed in micro-ATX form-factor on the basis of Intel Z170 chipset. The latter is ready to cooperate with Intel Skylake CPUs for Socket LGA1151. The PCB offers a pair of DIMM slots for DDR4-4500 MHz RAM (up to 32 GB capacity).



ASRock Z170M OC Formula accommodates three PCIe 3.0 x16 expansion slots, enabling the creation of various graphics configurations (including Nvidia SLI & AMD CrossFireX). Storage subsystem is introduced by a pair of SATA Express ports (10 Gb/sec) as well as four SATA ports (6 Gb/sec) and one Ultra M.2 slot (32 Gb/sec).


This motherboard boasts a high-quality audio subsystem; it is based on Realtek ALC1150 controller, generating 7.1-channel sounding (Purity Sound 3).
