Overclocking the GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD9 + Core i7-980X with LN2 by Deanzo - Final Thoughts

Today we look at the new flagship motherboard from GIGABYTE, the GA-X58A-UD9. We want to see what limits it will push a Gulftown CPU to when frozen at minus 150 degrees celcius.

Final Thoughts

 

GIGABYTE can hold its head high; it has delivered us a board that deserves its flagship status. Jam packed full of features, dead simple to use and clocks very well.

 

At this point you may be getting the idea that I like this board, and you'd be right. I've clocked up a lot of hours on it now and found it extremely resilient, which is great with the warranty voiding activities I get up to.

 

While the board was extremely resilient, the same cannot be said for the CPUs. One 980X died outright with another two seriously degrading during the period of creating this article.
