GIGABYTE's X58A-OC motherboard gets full introduction

Watching the interview right now!

Earlier on today we visited the GIGABYTE headquarters in Taipei and had a good old fashioned full look at its newest motherboard that will be officially launched next week at CeBIT in Germany. We are talking about the X58A-OC aka Hi Cookie's baby.

GIGABYTE has long wanted to produce a motherboard dedicated strictly to overclockers - that wait is now over. We are talking about a board that doesn't just overclock well, but one that cuts out the crap and nonsense and just gets down to the business of high-end overclocking.

The Taiwanese company has long been involved with overclockers and overclocking events around the world where it has managed to create a sizable market for itself. It has learnt much from the investment put into these events over time and even managed to pick up a famous Taiwanese extreme overclocker named "Hi Cookie". This guy is the brains behind the X58A-OC, an overclocking motherboard designed by a real overclocker. Logically it makes perfect sense, but how does it actually work out? From what we saw today, pretty well.

Give him the limited pink edition Dino :)

Spain Ximi says:

How much PCIe x16 , have the new board ?

Thank's !

Germany Hyperhorn says:

Price sounds fair for a top notch OC board. However it's a pity it wasn't released a few months ago, because many grinders jumped onto Sandy Bridge now and will not go back to 1366 especially if there are new sockets on the way which are expected to launch in 2011. :o

Well, additional 775 mounting holes would be nice IMO. :p

yet another 10 minuts of talk with board being nowhere near retail. I'm waiting for the actual availability and unbiased user feedback.

Belgium Massman says:

People who buy the board are also biased.

United States Hondacity says:

finally an awesome price... ud9 with a ud1 price :))

United States Hondacity says:

GOOC with orange boards woooooooooooo

Ukraine MaJ0r says:

Price is good but in my country this board is useless. Nobody won't buy it because p67 boards are looking more preferably for and user. I know more guys who sells/sold good X58 board. I sold my Classi too.

Belgium HybridChiller says:

Denmark M.Beier says:

Sweet price, isnt it? :D I still would have prefered it being GA-X58A-COOKIE

^ That's a pretty stupid and ignorant comment to make.

Slovenia tiborrr says:

Yeah, well, it ain't worth much more than 280USD. It's essentially a strip bare board and that's what I like about it! :)
