Gigabyte Preps New Motherboard Line for Enthusiast Overclockers
Gigabyte is now readying a new line of motherboards that have been designed for the really enthusiast extreme overclockers. According to Gigabyte, these have been specifically designed for overclocking with LN2 Cooling (Yes indeed, hence enthusiast). It comes with a new ‘OC Orange’ color scheme. These boards are being designed with the help of notorious overclocker “hicookie”.
The socket LGA1366 motherboard shown in its CGI form is said to be devoid of all features that overclockers won’t need. It sticks to just the essentials as far as connectivity goes, but makes up for it with every feature that will help overclockers make, break, and chase world records. The board is loaded with heatsinks to cool all critical components. It probably uses digital PWM and/or high-C capacitors to keep the CPU socket area as less-crowded as possible (for heavy LN2 pots). Expansion includes four PCI-E 2.0 x16 for 4-way SLI and CrossFireX.
