Reading between the lines (and skipping the multi-usage of the term "world record"), Gigabyte is sending out the signal that:

1) The F7 BIOS overclocks just fine
2) The boards are well capable of high frequency

The previous week must've been PR-hell for the boys and girls at GBT; nice to see the PR taking a positive swing and not (as sometimes happens) trying to point out the failure of others.

Need to re-test the UD7 I guess :D

Just curious what this chip will do on a R4E for example

TaPaKaH says:

nice attempt to distract the attention - those "records" are not PWM demanding at all, plus 99% of the success comes from the CPU and not the board

btw, hardware golden cup now is a "World Record" ?

United States Hondacity says:
