yeah, and there is no other one that allows you to do this.

but hey... you can get this special one for only 87368911767781762891542763981154726642313276418716 83176498 bucks.
totally worth it, because it's the only one that will push your computer to the limits because it allows you to overclock while you overclock while you overclock while you overclock while you overclock because it's an overclocking board for overclocking that overclocks and is labelled for overclocking

This board reminds me of the DFI LanParty.

Honestly ROG is republic of gamers(not overclockers) even tho overclockers like it gigabyte has released the G1 to compete with ROG. ROG has nothing on certain things this board has, and you should see people over at XS and most of those guys are LN2/DICE benchers. This board already has WRs across the board, max 990x clock, wprime, pcmark. Only a few people have it too. This board is NOT a gimmick, they cleared teh CPU area for sub-zero cooling by making is uper easy to insulate the motherboard.

For the VRM they really did their job right, they switched out the inductors, changed EVERY capacitor on the board to the POSCAPs, which is just a brand name for tantalum core capacitors. What good is this? well its hard to insulate around traditional capacitors, plus when they get cold the don't work well. The whole board is now very easy to insulate.

The hardware built in for overclocking, with buttons makes it much more stable to manually OC once in windows when compared to software. Plus the 4G button will take any 1366 processor to 4ghz and OC any RAM as well.

This board is stripped of all stupid crap like extra USB and IEEE and other things that take up CPU resources. Personally i think this board shouldn't have audio nor USb 3.0 or SATA6G. But they said they have to sell it somehow.

They put in manual PWm frequency which basically allows you to OC the VRM, and it works. This is only a feature you see on digital PWMs and they have implemented it manually on an analogue one.

The price on this board is stated to be phenomenal. I think it will sell out very quick.

And yea a i7 990x is a subzero bencher's choice.

I got an email about the press release so i posted it VRZON took the info they got from here: http://gigabytedaily.blogspot.com/se...&max-results=7
Let me address this post. Republic of Gamers boards are marketed and intended towards Gamers/Overclockers who want to maximize their performance and their gaming experience. CPU Level Up is a feature that is present on the majority of their boards. However it is a feature that receives special marketing attention through the ROG Branding as can be seen in this Youtube video:


I have no doubt that this X58A-OC Board was launched along with the G1 as the GIGABYTE equivalents to the ROG series branding that ASUS produces as a tier1 motherboard producer. Infact we can see GIGABYTE trialling their Gaming variants with their EXTREME variants as pilot models to eventually emerge with the X58A-OC and G1 for GIGABYTE's ROG counterparts.

While I understand that this board has certain features or claims to fame that apparently differs it from the rivals/competition that does not mean this board is superior to the rival offerings. You seem to be forgetting that the rival offerings have also broken world records even though those boards weren't touted to be the first motherboards for overclockers designed by overclockers. They simply made this motherboard easier to insulate and to prepare for L2 or Dry Ice benching.

The buttons themselves are gimmicks in as much as the ASUS Cpu Level Up feature is. The real overclocking should always be done in the BIOS and not through preset configurations on Buttons. As you must also be aware the ASUS Offerings have similar buttons.

The price itself will not be cheap. As we all aware of X58 motherboards upon their launching and upon the lavish marketing and press releases they are nowhere near as affordable as you claim them to be. Especially considering that this is a higher tier of luxury motherboard offered by Gigabyte in comparison to their regular mid-low-tier X58A offerings.

actually this board is going to be less than 300 bucks as already stated.

The G1 series is the equivalent to the ROG series, it is priced as the R3E BE will be.

yes and also many other features that are useful, such as getting rid of all the extra features that eat up CPu and RAm resources. OCers are pissed that there is audio and lan on this board, as am i.

yes they do but here is teh kicker, these buttons are FAR more advanced.
BLCk adjustment at 1mhz AND 0.3mhz AND CPU ratio adjustment

AND an automatic 4ghz button for any X58 cpu and RAm up to spec.


In bold is what the ROG series does not have.

I already said this board is to be priced as the X58A-UD5 is, at $280 dollars is what GB was quoted saying in one video. Let me put it in two ways you might understand. They got rid of extra ICs that cost money and replaced them with very expensive capacitors and other features for OCers.

ASUS beat GB with price on the R3E vs the UD9, now this is payback.
Another thing the ASUS Chil digital PWm has very bad problems with the cold, the only way around this is heating it up as many people do.


I don't represent GB, but you can see who the asus fans are because they get pissed when they see a GB board marketed towards them. I used to be a die hard asus fan, but i am not anymore, you live and learn. Every manufacturer puts out good boards, but certain manufacturers own certain platforms once they mature. ASUS is 15 times bigger than GB, but GB still makes their own boards in house and this is why you don't see things like OC panels as much because they have to outsource that production. Honestly i just hope this type of trend catches on. If you haven't taken a look at wprime/pcmark WRs they are now owned by this board. Take a look at max CPu-Z for 990x and this board again, and only 3 people have it that bench.

Also the G1 killer while not outfitted for OCers at all, does OC very well. The Ramapge series is great and all, but it has a lot of extra features hardcore OCers don't want to pay for.
