HWBOT member Chispy made a bootable XP for Z590 OC Formula, you can grab it here:

  • Use Macrium Reflect software for the above image.
  • Use ASMedia ports (IDE) - Select XP compatible in Bios

Kingston upcoming 5000mhz Kits can do 6133mhz memtest easily on Z590 OC Formula.
Nice kits to do memory frequency overclocking.

Gents the xp image i provided is bone stock xp 32bit bootable and works great on the board, easy installation no problems at all. Just make sure you use the ASmedia sata controller and in the bios select xp compatibility + set third party sata controllers as ide. That's all you need to install xp , easy peasy out of the box support for xp works great. The board is really fast in 2d , SuperPi 32m it flies ...👌

Supply in europe was zero xD - if someone is interested in these 4400c16 keep an eye on marketplace, I will sell my two kits I have bc of ram overhead here

I spent all weekend testing nothing but 3D on the board with a 11900k and tested with all kinds of GPUs latest high end to oldest legacy gpus - ( from rx 6900xt / rtx 3090 to legacy gtx 580 / amd 6970.  Legacy benchmarks fly on this set up ( Aqm , heaven , 3dmarks , 01 , 03 , 11  ) ( also fastest plattform for the new Port Royal bench ) , is a must have as it is the fastest plattform for it to date.  This board it is really , really fast on 3d so that you guys know 👌

what is the retail price and when we can find it in a store ? 

 

thanks 

Yes this this this this, when can we buy. Pretty sure it's going to end up at $599 like the APEX but who knows, heard they wanted much lower price but kinda got carried away with the best hardware ?  I stopped the insanity of the APE XII after a lot of "fun" with RKL. Well when it decided to try and fry my only working nice OC Panel the other day.

Only board right now in the US worth buying, especially after going to best buy to get any Z590 board and coming home with some sort of edging gaymer by MSI

3dmark 01 works flawlessly and painless on ASRock Z590 OC formula using windows xp os  👍.  The secret sauce is in the Bios  , thank you @NickShih and ASRock that made this happen.  01 using xp on rocketlake z590 it flies ...

 

Quick test , nothing optimized and low clocks. 3dmark01 damage incoming very soon 💪
