The GIGABYTE OC Lab opened its doors to the world back in April 2013. Located within GIGABYTE HQ in Taipei, the Lab is an overclocking sanctuary where in-house overclockers and special guests congregate to push the latest GIGABYTE boards and graphics cards to the max. Back on April 25th 2013, we published an article that describes how the OC Lab got its first visitors. TeamAU rolled in to town and immediately set to work breaking World Records. Here’s what TeamAU Captain Dinos22 wrote back in 2013:
“You've heard about the grand opening of GIGABYTE's new OC Lab but there was one key ingredient missing, extreme overclockers and thousands of litres of LN2. I'm pleased to say I've been present at GIGABYTE HQ in the past week to tick that box and give you a snippet of days of great fun, and to top it off, some excellent records achieved. TeamAU (youngpro, sniperOz & dinos22) were among the overclockers to try the lab. Mad222 & KK from Hong Kong as well as a man machine from UK that goes by the name "8pack" gave the lab a go. Resident overclocker hicookie was on hand as well.”
Hardware used included Intel Core i7 3770K processors and first edition GTX Titan graphics cards. World Records broken during that session include a Core i7 3770K frequency record, 3DMark11 Performance, 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark03.
