Out of the box, the performance of the ASRock X99 OC Formula is at the lower-end of the scale. While not much changes between all of the setups, you can see that the ASRock X99 OC Formula sits a little further back with the MSI X99S GAMING 9 AC. However, thanks to a really strong overclock, you can see a solid performance boost in all areas.

While MediaEspresso performance sees the ASRock X99 OC Formula sit a little towards the back of the pack with the MSI offering again, you can see that PCMark 8 performance is extremely strong, coming out ahead of the pack by a decent margin. Overclocking helps push these numbers even higher, with clear separation shown between all of the setups across the board.
