Foxconn had designed the first (if not, one of the first) motherboards with the help of Samino (PRO overclocker) for overclockers. Did Gigabyte miss the event? lol

I'm skeptical.

I guess only time will tell. Maybe Tom's can bake some cookies and send them to Gigabyte in exchange for a little more in-depth preview?

Hell, a lot of 486 MBs could be overclocked by fiddling with the settings. I remember overclocking my VESA bus.

btw: I had the BH6 and the Celery 300a too. :D

I seem to recall people overclocking their Amigas and some crafty people overclocking older Commodore hardware.

Price wise I'm guessing will be higher than their Killer series, ie $600+

Secondly the advantage of this board over others is that all the basic features needed by consumers, but not Pro Overclockers have been removed. Note the minimal Backplate Connectors and lack of Legacy PCI or PICe x1 (yes I know there is one Legacy PCI..) Also theres about 6-7 Fan headers on the board.

OK there are other "Overclocker" boards on the market, but this one is aimed purely at the Professional, Competitive OCers.

Also Tom's, bit slow on the announcement.. Bit-Tech had this preview about 5 days ago.. Oh and they went into more detail.. And had a photo with the Heatsinks ON..

First system I overclocked was a TRS80 Model I in 1978 - 1.77 MHz to 2.01 MHz. Had to piggy back chips, cut PCB traces, and run jumpers.
