ASRock introduces the new X299 OC Formula motherboard oriented for overclocking and designed by ASRock’s resident professional overclocker Nick Shih. It features a solid CPU VRM design with 13-phase CPU power design along with a 2-phase memory power design for improved overclocking headroom with lower temperatures. The X299 OC Formula packs XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsink/Heatpipe to effectively dissipate heat from the MOSFETs especially on overclocked settings which allows the motherboard to support up to 450W CPU.

To further enhance overclocking capabilities of the ASRock X299 OC Formula, the motherboard uses a specially designed 8-layer PCB and supports quad-channel memory supporting up to 4800MHz with just air cooling as achieved by Nick Shih himself. The X299 OC Formula also supports the upcoming fastest XMP profiles of DDR4-4500MHz with the Intel Core-X processors from DRAM makers like Corsair, G.SKILL, Team Group and others.
