GIGABYTE X99-SOC Champion Sub-Zero Overclocking Review by Ryan Leiserowitz

For those who don't know Ryan, he is an American overclocker who goes by the internet handle TheGoat Eater. I have never inquired about the origins of the nickname as I assume it's just one of those occasions where ignorance is bliss and you don't ask questions you don't want to know the answer to.

At Ryan published his review of the GIGABYTE X99-SOC Champion motherboard. The review include a section on sub-zero overclocking as he competed in the Challenger Division I Round 3 at the time. The CPU used for the review is the Core i7 5960X and paired with a set of Kingston DDR4-3000 C15 4x4GB kit, you find yourself with a very capable and competitive system. The verdict reads as follows:

"The overall verdict is I would say if you want this board, get it and give it a spin and take the plunge into sub-zero benching. I will advise that it is very rewarding and fun if you like benchmarking on air or water already. The board was a pleasure to tweak and has been rewarding to work with prepping for the cold on-air and I have found that it has become my favorite board to use right now. I look forward to some more bios updates to hopefully play with some of the brand new DDR4 that are hitting the channels now as it should be fun to see what they should do, especially so with this motherboard at the heart of the testing."
