GSkill is putting on a huge OC show at this year’s Computex (being held next week). They’ve invited professional overclockers from different manufacturers to put on one of the most interesting OC shows I’ve seen at these types of events. 4 days of non-stop overclocking, 4 different board manufacturers each day, some great GSkill RAM, GIGABYTE crew (hicookie & dinos22), along with GSkill guests (youngpro&hiwa) on the closing day.
dinos22 & youngpro will be representing TeamAU this year and can’t wait to get this show under way!
Come and visit the booth on the GIGABYTE bench day!
Event: G.SKILL World-Class Overclocking Invitational
Time: June 6-8th, 11am – 5pm
Place: Computex Taipei 2012, Nangang Exhibition Hall, Booth I0118
We recently reported on James taking out the single GPU 3DMARK06 world record with his GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H. He wasn’t playing around and went for the kill by taking out the global world record in 3DMARK06 also by edging out rsannino from Italy by the merest of margins (15 points).
Congrats James and keep pushing.
We’ve spotted a new world record over at HWBOT.ORG yesterday for the single card 3DMARK06. TeamAU member, Youngpro, used the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H board and a somewhat new GIGABYTE GTX680OC GPU.
It is good to see the new GTX680 cards are starting to finally make a small mark on records. It did require some interesting home made controller board mods from what we can see in the photos which we hope to bypass once the GIGABYTE GTX680SOC(Super Overclock) cards come out.
Well done youngpro, keep that Z77X-UD3H rockin’!
This weekend marks the start of a long benching season where overclockers around the world are flocking to their nearest retailer and buying lots of Intel 3770K CPUs and Z77 boards to go with them. Chips are getting frozen as we speak! Some CPUs are bad and some are decent, everyone is looking for that golden chip!
I took some time last week to compile a few video diaries (best way to describe this video) and pass on some of the knowledge I’ve acquired over the past few months of testing Z77 platform with Ivy Bridge CPUs. I hope this video will have something for the beginners and experienced guys and perhaps answer some questions about “walls” you may experience this weekend (hopefully not but overclocking is 50% trouble shooting particularly at the start of new gen hardware right!).
Without further ado, here is my overclocking guide video featuring GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H and Intel 3770K Ivy Bridge CPU. Be warned, this video is 1h 20+minutes long, popcorn shouldn’t be far away!
This must be one of the toughest couple of months as an overclocker and enthusiast to have had to go through I swear! We all had to respect the NDA until early hours this morning when it finally lifted. What an amazing new platform (for lack of a better word)! Intel has finally given overclockers the jackpot! The new king is in town and geeks call it IVY BRIDGE.
Today marks the day when just about any overclocking world record you can imagine will get smashed due to Intel’s ability to finally figure out and remove cold bug from the processors and cold scaling. We are talking 3D benching up to 7GHz on the most efficient platform in history.
I’d like to congratulate a friend, youngpro, for clinching some really nice records himself today, single card 3DMARK03 and 3DMARK05 global records using GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H and 7970OC GPU as well as 32M and 1024M Wprime multithreaded scores. Congrats James! Keep pushing!
GIGABYTE R&D team including bios guys, top management, software guys, just about everyone has started working very hard on this platform a year ago. We have a new digital PWM on the boards now. It ROCKS! Boards are very stable, bench at monster frequencies, behave great subzero, run very efficient and have some great overclocking features even on the affordable range of boards! Great effort to the whole GIGABYTE team!
