[Lab501] Computex 2014 ? GIGABYTE launches GA-Z97X-SOC Force LN2

GIGABYTE just launched a new overclocking motherboard, built specifically for LN2 overclocking. They removed the mounting holes around the socket and moved the two memory slots closer to the CPU for better signaling. At the press launch just a couple of minutes ago, the GIGABYTE Performance Team formed by HiCookie, Dinos22 and Sofos broke the memory clock world record! The new record is now a flat DDR3-4500. Rumors go that the HyperX memory sticks still have plenty of headroom left and there's more to come during this Computex.

In addition to the new world record, the team also demoed a memtest stable Corsair Vengeance at a stunning DDR3-3800. Pretty strong memory overclocker!

More information and pictures over at Lab501.net.

(Uploading the overclocking screenshots right now)

So we still have to drill our own mounting holes where it says X ;-)

I didn't know that mounting holes were a luxury overclockers could do without

Just remove the socket retention mechanism => 3 holes at your disposal.

Alternative: for watercooling I am actually using a system with no holes.
