Well, well. It seems the F7 BIOS update to some Gigabyte boards is really made out of something quite special. I covered the BIOS problem yesterday with an updated post to you, our readers, and to Gigabyte and today I find news of an overclocking record set with their board.



Overclocker "Hicookie" has achieved a new high clockspeed on Intel's Sandy Bridge-E Core i7-3930K by pushing it up to an insane 5.6GHz using Gigabyte's GA-X79-UD3 motherboard, the world's first motherboard to achieve a multiplier of 57x.


Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at Gigabyte says:


These new world records underline how the Gigabyte 3-way digital power engine on existing X79 motherboards makes breathtaking performance possible on our X79 series enthusiast platforms. They should also erase any skepticism regarding the performance and overclocking capabilities of our new F7 BIOS for Gigabyte X79 motherboards.




For those of you worried of your Gigabyte boards having a fault from previous reports, this should pretty much ease your mind. Amazing results, and not even from Gigabyte's top-tier Assassin board!
