    Default ASR Z170 oc formula problem

    Hi!


    I'd like to buy one of Z170 boards: oc formula or extreme7+, but I have couple of questions.


    1.Is in ASR Z170 oc formula on first pci-e x16 slot space for gpu with backplate (for example msi geforce gtx 970 which I have)? How many milimeters are between pci-e slot and I/O shield or RAM slots?


    2. Is ASR Z170 extreme7+ also made with 8-layer PCB as oc formula?


    I will use MatLab, 3D programs like Catia and ofc gaming in spare time. I have water blocks for CPU and GPU and I like to OC (6600k). What are your opinions about these two?

    Thumbs up Re: ASR Z170 oc formula problem

    I have an Asrock Z170 Formula OC with the same Nvidia GTX 970 GPU. The ram slots are very close to the back of the GPU, but you can get at all 4 slots. There is about 3mm clearance from the rear of the PCB on the GPU to the Ram locking mechanism. If you are only using 2 slots for ram you have no concerns at all.

    Update:

    I just added another 2 sticks of memory and have no clearance issues at all.
