Part: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Produk motherboard memang memiliki cakupan pengguna yang beragam. Ada produk motherboard yang ditujukan untuk kalangan pengguna biasa, kalangan gamer, maupun kalangan khusus seperti overclocker. Pada produk motherboard untuk kalangan overclocker, biasanya motherboard ini memiliki keistimewaan yang jarang ditemukan pada motherboard lainnya. Beberapa keistimewaan tersebut seperti penggunaan komponen dengan kualitas lebih baik dan juga disertakannya feature overclocking lebih, baik dari segi software maupun hardware. Tentu saja keistimewaan tersebut ditujukan agar overclocker mampu menggenjot kemampuan prosesor, memori, maupun graphics card hingga batas maksimal dengan mengggunakan motherboard tersebut.

Beberapa waktu yang lalu, pasar motherboard kembali didatangi oleh sebuah produk motherboard untuk kalangan overclocker yang berasal dari salah satu produsen ternama, ASRock. Motherboard bernama ASRock Z77 OC Formula ini memang begitu spesial karena untuk menciptakannya, ASRock bekerjasama dengan salah satu overclocker tingkat dunia bernama Nick Shih.

Tanda tangan Nick Shih dibubuhkan di setiap motherboard ASRock Z77 OC Formula
