The ASRock Z77 OC Formula was shown off at Computex 2012 last year and we found ourselves impressed with what ASRock was doing with its new golden boy Nick Shih. Once shown off, though, it was still a few months before we finally got a chance to check out the motherboard in person. Once we got the board in our hands, we were not disappointed with what ASRock was offering.

You know I read the review and was very happy that there was finally a review for this board. I have been waiting for a review of this exact board for my new rig since it is between an Asus board or an ASRock board since they both have acceleration technology for their USB 3.0 support. This particular board has support for 12 USB 3.0 ports and I will use them all. The next closest I have found is 8 USB 3.0 ports.

I was very disappointed that the reviewer did not include the results of the Asus Z87 Expert, the only other 1150 board in his comparisons for either the USB 3.0 test or the SSD test. What's up with that. And I have tried to contact them at the TweakTown site but they have not responded. They also have an actual ASRock representative that gives support on the TT site and I asked him to comment on the disappointing results of the OC Formula board on the SSD Read test which was 20% slower than all the other boards in the comparison and well below the rating for the Corsair Force GT Series SSD used in the test. However he has also not responded. I'm VERY disappointed because this was definitely the board I wanted but I guess I will have to make a different choice.frown.gif

I can't believe no other site has reviewed this board yet. It's been 10 days since the launch of the new batch of IB chips and I would think there would be more activity on these sites that provide such valuable insight into the capabilities of these new products that we all love so much.
