ASRock has just launched the ASRock Z590 OC Formula motherboard built for Intel’s 11th generation desktop processors.


“As Intel launches its Z590 chipset to power the 11th Gen Intel Core processors, ASRock once again is your partner in conquering the overclocking world with the Z590 OC Formula.”

ASRock Z590 OC Formula overclocking-friendly specs

The ASRock Z590 OC Formula features SMD Type DIMM Slots, a 12-layer server-grade low loss PCB, and a 16 power phase 90A smart power stage technology.


The SMD DIMM Slots help reduce signal loss and improve RAM stability under high frequency to be able to maximize memory overclocking potential. The 12-layer server-grade PCB, on the other hand, prevents PCB bending and improves signal integrity. Smart power stage technologies are optimized for monitoring the current and temperature so the CPU gets a smooth supply of power.

The Z590 OC Formula also has PCB Backdrill craftsmanship which removes the excess stub in multilayered printed wiring boards. This allows the signal to flow between layers with less loss through attenuation while also improving impedance matching.


The motherboard also includes an OLED display and an OC button for easy access and control.

Packed with industry-defining specs

The ASRock Z590 OC Formula has specs that everyone from overclockers, gamers, to power users need.


It supports Wi-Fi 6E which extends to the 6GHz spectrum band and 2.5Gb/s LAN. In addition, it is equipped with USB 3.2 Gen-2×2 headers with superfast 20Gb/s transfer speed. It also has PCIe4.0, the latest interconnect standard that doubles bandwidth available with PCIe 3.0.

It has a built-in ESS 9218 DAC Wima audio caps that deliver true HiFi audio without distortion to give crystal clear audio quality. It has a 112dB THD+N for higher impedance for up to 600ohm using headphones.


The Z590 OC Formula allows users to break overclocking world records with Nick Shih’s secret overclocking profiles and a whiole lot more.
