ASRock displayed two of its upcoming motherboards, one for the LGA1155 platform and one for the LGA2011 platform.

The Z77 OC Formula will come with a cold plate for liquid cooling solutions pre-installed on the motherboard. It will have two PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots, one PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot, 10 USB 3.0 ports, 12 USB 2.0 ports, six SATA-600 ports, four SATA-300 ports, on-board audio based on the high-end Realtek ALC898 codec, one Gigabit Ethernet port, voltage monitoring points, and two LED displays. It will support memories up to DDR3-3000. Another highlight of this motherboard is the use of an eight-layer printed circuit board. (Motherboards usually use a six- or four-layer PCB.) As you can assume by its name, this is an LGA1155 motherboard based on the Intel Z77 chipset. This motherboard is still under development, and its physical aspect may still change.

The X79 Extreme11 will be an exceedingly high-end motherboard for the LGA2011 platform, based on the Intel X79 chipset, with seven PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots. All slots are PCI Express 3.0 and operate at high bandwidth configurations because of the presence of two PLX PEX8747 chips. This motherboard will have a Creative Core3D[l1]  audio controller, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, eight USB 3.0 ports, 14 USB 2.0 ports, two SATA-600 ports controlled by the chipset, eight SAS/SATA-600 ports controlled by an LSI SAS2308 chip, two eSATA-600 ports, four SATA-300 ports, two FireWire ports, eight memory sockets, and a POST diagnostics display.
