As you can see above, the board carries an orange and black theme, deviating from GIGABYTE's older blue theme. Next to the four RAM DIMM slots is the OC Touch, an exclusive GIGABYTE feature. OC Touch offers up buttons to make overclocking easy and "enjoyable."

 

The Z87X-OC features four PCIe-x16 expansion slots and supports up to four-way Crossfire and SLI. The arrangement of the PCIe expansion slots makes it easy to install four high-powered GPUs as they are spaced every other expansion slot, leaving room for dual-slot coolers.

 

It features six USB 3.0/2.0 ports and two exclusively USB 2.0 ports. Gigabit Ethernet is provided through an Intel networking chip. The board also features 8 channel audio thanks to an ALC892 audio controller. Pricing and availability is not currently known.
