ASRock Z87 OC Formula Motherboards With Waterproof Conformal Coating Backed By 5 Year Warranty


ASRock launched their Z87 OC Formula motherboards a few weeks ago which featured their latest waterproof conformal technology. The conformal coating protects the motherboards from any kind of liquid spillage on the PCB but in case an accident happens, there would be no need to worry since the OC Formula series are backed with a 5 year guaranteed warranty by ASRock.

A live demonstration for the waterproof conformal coating can be seen here showcasing ASRock pouring liquid water on top of their board while its functioning but not affecting its processes. In addition to protecting their boards from liquids, conformal coating also helps in protecting the motherboards from dust, corrosion and high temperatures.

ASRock Guarantees 5 Year Warranty for Z87 OC Formula Motherboards with Waterproof Conformal Coating

TAIPEI, TAIWAN, June 14, 2013 – Accidents happen, especially when you try to avoid them. But rest assured that ASRock’s latest ATX sized OC Formula Series motherboards, including Z87 OC Formula/ac (with 802.11ac WiFi support) and Z87 OC Formula are protected by a special layer of Conformal Coating. As you’ve probably already heard, Conformal Coating protects the motherboards from conductive liquids, dust, corrosion and extreme temperatures*. And if you still feel skeptical about the lifespan of your overclocking oriented motherboards, fear not! ASRock guarantees 5 year warranty!

ASRock’s Z87 OC Formula/ac and Z87 OC Formula are designed by the world famous overclocker Nick Shih. These two motherboards possess both hardware and software features for extreme overclocking, and they are also fully loaded with a set of lifestyle based features named A-Style. ASRock provides the five year warranty package as long as the malfunctions and defects occur under normal use conditions and aren’t caused by misuse or abnormal operations**. If unfortunately the motherboard cannot be repaired, ASRock will replace the product with equivalent or next generation products.

*Conformal Coating may protect the motherboard against conductive liquids, but only to a certain extent. To avoid damaging your computer and other components, we still advise users to keep liquids a safe distance away.

** The details of this 5 year warranty service may vary by different regions.

PS: The pins need to stay conductive therefore they are not covered by Conformal Coating. The water in this video is designed to avoid the pins which still risks of short circuit.
