HiCookie hits 7GHz with 990X CPU on upcoming X58A-OC

A damn fine way to show off a new motherboard

| Motherboards News | Posted: Feb 16, 2011 4:14 am

A new video has just been posted to YouTube which shows off the upcoming GIGABYTE X58A-OC, a motherboard dedicated solely to overclocking. It has many unnecessary features stripped from the board creating a platform that is ideal for ultra high clock speeds.

 

 

HiCookie, resident extreme overclocker at GIGABYTE, posted the above video which showcases his upcoming X58A-OC. Teamed up with Intel's latest 990X Extreme Edition processor and LN2 he managed to go past 7GHz all without using a keyboard or mouse. Demonstrated was the OC Touch feature which utilizes buttons on the motherboard to increase the bus speed of processor.

 

Suffice to say, if you are an overclocker trying to hit extreme speeds, the X58A-OC is looking like the motherboard for you.
