ASRock X99 OC Formula Review – Conclusion

Starting with the build quality of the X99 OC Formula we have yet another impressive board from ASRock. Glass Fabric PCB with multiple 2oz copper layers, protective coating, durable components, shielding, the list goes on and on, including quality items like our headphone amp. The design and features are also right up there too, dual M.2 slots is great for future proofing. OC focused reading points, monitors, dual BIOS, switches and buttons (as well as software) are always appreciated and while there are little quirks here and there like a molex plug which extends out the bottom of the board, potentially causing space/wiring issues in smaller chassis, the overall layout is trouble free.

The connectivity provided by ASRock is great, and while some may look at other boards with their built in Wi-Fi, the potential is here to add a card for that in the mini-PCIe slot if we wish. So that brings us to performance where the X99 OC Formula was able to compete with the best X99 boards we have tested to date. Right across the suite of tests it was at the top end of the performance charts which is ideal. For the enthusiast/overclockers out there we can tweak things with ease but it was great to see that this board allowed us to hit the highest speed we have seen from our current i7-5960X to date, 4.5GHz with 1.4v.

What would we choose between this and the X99X Killer? If you don’t want Killer NIC and the gaming related software then probably the X99 OC Formula is the way to go. It offers many of the same great features but with some nice additions like that extra connectivity and overclocking potential.
