Release the full power of Intel's 4th Gen Core processor with the GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC motherboard.

Based on the latest Intel Z87 chipset, the GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC is a great foundation for your powerhouse. It takes full advantage of "Haswell" performance and features in an LGA 1150 package. This motherboard is designed specifically for the purpose of breaking OC records, with an array of exclusive and unique features that have never been seen before on a motherboard. Giving pro and enthusiast overclockers the edge on LN2, the GIGABYTE Z87X-OC sits at the cutting edge of technical possibility, pushing the outer limits of performance.

OC Ignition
There are occasions as an overclocker when you want to shut down the system without turning off the power to other parts of the system, for example the drives and system fans. This is where OC Ignition is really useful. Hitting the OC Ignition button gives continuous, uninterrupted power to all the motherboard's connected drives and system fans, but not to the CPU. This is useful in 'cold bug' situations when you need to heat the CPU to a bootable temperature, but you'd prefer the fans to keep spinning, reducing moisture build-up.

Overclockers using i-ram drives may also want to maintain SATA power, and not risk losing their customized OS install. Users with regular SSDs or HDDs also know that frequent powering on and off is harmful to your drives in the long-term.

OC Ignition is also useful in allowing users to pre-test water cooling setups, and even allows case mod demos to be developed without having to fully turn on the PC.

OC Ignition: Feature Summary
• Powers fans and drives without booting or powering the CPU
• Active fans help to reduce moisture build-up when using LN2
• Maintain continuous uninterrupted power to drives
• Safely powers water cooling systems for safe leak checking
• Test demo and case mod systems without needing to boot the system
OC Touch
The GIGABYTE OC Touch includes a range of easy-to-use buttons and switches featured exclusively on GIGABYTE OC motherboards.
OC PCIe Switch
Overclockers can manually turn on or off each installed PCIe lane of the motherboard, allowing users to effortlessly remove graphic cards from the system without the hassle of physically removal. This is especially convenient for VGA overclocking on LN2 and water-cooled systems.
OC Peg adds auxiliary power to the PCIe slots of your motherboard, improving system stability in extreme configurations. This is especially useful in power-hungry four-way graphics configurations.
OC Brace
OC Brace allows extreme overclockers and system testers to safely install up to four graphics cards in an open case or test bed, without risking PCIe slot damage or preventing cards not showing up in the OS due to poor contact with the PCIe slot. OC Brace is a simple and elegant way to give robust installation support to full-sized graphics cards in extreme multi-GPU configurations, including LN2 benching with cumbersome GPU pots that a need stable, solid installation base over extended periods.
OC Connect
OC Connect positions two USB connectors on the near side of the motherboard facing the overclocker. This makes it easier to save data, flash the BIOS, or install software in open bench testing platforms – whether for extreme overclocking, or simply pretesting the PC before final component installation inside a case, scenarios where accessing the rear-panel IO can be an inconvenience.
GIGABYTE Exclusive Ultra Durable Technologies
GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards integrate the absolute best quality solid state capacitors that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations. This provides peace of mind for end users who want to push their system hard, yet demand absolute reliability and stability. With ultra-low ESR – no matter how high the CPU loading – these capacitors come in customized jet black, exclusively on GIGABYTE 8 series motherboards. ("Rated for an unprecedented 10,000 hours of intensive operation at an incredible 105°C" – Nippon Chemi-Con)
Gold-Plated Solid Power Connectors
GIGABYTE Overclocking motherboards feature gold-plated connectors for the CPU and 24-pin ATX power connectors. Gold provides better conductivity and signal transmission than standard implementations, and gives far better reliability and stability over time due to its resistance to metal corrosion caused by frequent use.
Gold-Plated CPU Socket, DDR, and PCI Express Slots
GIGABYTE 8 series motherboards come equipped with gold-plated hardware for the most crucial areas where your motherboard has contact with other components: gold-plated CPU socket, gold DDR3 slots, and PCI Express slots. Using gold-plated CPU socket and slots means that enthusiasts are guaranteed absolute reliability and longevity for the CPU, memory, and graphics cards, no matter how many times you switch them out.
Extreme Multi-GPU Support
Optimized support for AMD CrossFire in four-way configurations, plus support for NVIDIA SLI technology in two-way setups. This extreme design allows a more optimized multiple-card overclocking experience, where the first three slots have the data bandwidth available from trace paths direct from the CPU, and the fourth slot takes the PCIe lanes from the Intel Z87 PCH.
New GIGABYTE UEFI DualBIOS with Dashboard Mode
GIGABYTE's new UEFI DualBIOS has a redesigned user interface that offers users the chance to take control of their BIOS environment like never before.

Dashboard Mode: GIGABYTE's exclusive Dashboard Mode puts you firmly in the driving seat, allowing users to have complete access to all data related to your motherboard's key components, including CPU, graphics and memory clocks, temperatures, voltages, and fan speeds.
Fully Customizable UI: Users can create their own custom home page, adding the menus and options that they tend to use most frequently. This creates a slick and optimized interface that you can customize further by adding your own  background image.
Choose Your Own Landing Page: Choose exactly which section or page of the BIOS you want to land on after each reboot. If you are fine-tuning your memory timings, you can save time with each reboot by landing on the DDR sub-timings page each time. Fewer clicks, better experience.
Real-Time Overclocking: For the first time ever, overclockers can adjust the CPU clock, frequency, and voltage settings in real-time within BIOS. This massively saves time, allowing users to find optimal settings without having to reboot.
Now integrated with the GIGABYTE App Center, a re-designed and updated EasyTune app offers a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows users to fine-tune their system settings. Adjust system and memory clocks and voltages in a Windows environment with system-related information displayed, including advanced system fan calibration and configuration.

From 2013-2019, still going strong 12/15/2019 5:46:30 AM

Pros: I've had this thing grinning for 6 years for running games and editing photos and it's still going strong. No complaints out of me. I don't even think they make this anymore. It's been good to me all these years and I'm shocked it's still chugging along just fine.

Cons: None so far.

Terrible product! Dies after 2 years! 2/7/2017 8:33:47 PM

Pros: -Works for 2 years

Cons: -100% will die after 2 years

Overall Review: I've had 2 of these boards in my rig and both of them have died after 2 years. I originally thought the first might have been a dud but after having two I've realized these mobos are garbage. The funny thing is that each board is considered "Ultra Durable" and has a warranty for 5 years yet both my broken mobos haven't even completed 1 of the guarantee cycles. Never buying another gigabyte product in my life.

great overclocking

my 17 4790k has been working @ 4.8ghz. can go to 4.9ghz but too hot when stress tested using aida64.

noctual d-15 lowers temps about 24-30 idle.

Cons: none

Nice Looking... 7/24/2015 1:36:33 PM

Pros: Nice design, comes in a cool box.

Cons: Don't bother contacting Gigabyte for support. They're awful.

Also, this thing just won't operate with more than two sticks of RAM installed. I wanted a 32GB machine for video and audio editing but I'm stuck with 16 because that's all it can handle.

Gigabyte needs to get this under control.

Overall Review: I had them swap one out for me, but it was a battle to get them to advance replace it. After I explained to the guy who barely spoke English that I couldn't be without my computer for two weeks, he finally "asked his boss" and did the advanced replacement.

The second one was no better, and still didn't work with more than two sticks of RAM.

I waited this long to write a review in case I or Gigabyte may have found some way to fix this, but that hasn't happened.
