GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2 “Overclocking Motherboard” Leads at Computex 2014 Overclocking Events

Shatters Multiple Previous World Records and Sets World’s Highest DDR3 Memory Frequency Record at 4.56GHz (Previous set as 4.4GHz)

GIGABYTE has recently launched their latest and new extreme overclocking motherboard during Computex 2014 – the Gigabyte Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2. The Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2 is specifically designed and engineered to meet the most hardcore overclocker’s needs, even Liquid Nitrogen cooling. The said motherboard was not only revealed during Computex 2014, but it was also used and dominated during overclocking events at Computex 2014. Check out more information below.

According to Hicookie, Chief Overclocking Evangelist, GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit: “One of the greatest parts of working for GIGABYTE as an overclocker is the ability to come out with what at first seems like crazy idea, have our skilled engineers be able to build it, and have the backing of our management to allow the concept to go into production for sale,” “The Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2 is a true testament to this forward-thing philosophy, and I can’t wait for other overclockers around the world be able to use this motherboard to break even more world records.”

Featuring the latest Intel® 9 Series Chipset and supporting 4th and 5th generation Core™ CPUs, the GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2 was specially engineered with 2 memory DIMM slots located closer to the CPU with no fan mounting holes in order to deliver the world’s fastest DDR3 memory performance. Introduced to the world at GIGABYTE’s press conference on Monday, June 2nd 2014, the GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2, under the skillful hands of GIGABYTE OC evangelists HiCookie, Sofos1990 and Dino22, managed to set the world’s highest frequency memory overclock live at the event at 4.5GHz using Kingston HyperX Predator memory (XMP 2933MHz), demolishing the almost year old record of 4.4GHz. Later in the week at the Kingston OC Takeover World Finals, team GIGABYTE was able to set an even higher record frequency of 4.56GHz.

But that was not it for the new comer to the GIGABYTE overclocking lineup. Throughout the week of Computex, several overclocking events and competitions were hosted by various companies including Intel, Kingston and G.SKILL, becoming the perfect proving grounds for the Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2 to go head-to-head with its rivals. Saying that the Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2 became the headline attraction at Computex is not an understatement; here is a recap of all achievements accomplished by the 9 Series overclocking series motherboards during Computex.
