Many motherboard manufactures are offers many Overclocking features in their premium board segments. But on the other hand Gigabyte is offering a whole Overclocking series of boards designed for enthusiasts and professional overclockers in mind. Following the success of the GIGABYTE Z87X-OC motherboard, the #1 most overclocked motherboard on HWBOT.org in 2013, GIGABYTE has unleashed 2 new Z97 based overclocking motherboards, the Z97X-SOC FORCE and Z97X-SOC.

And we like to thanks Gigabyte for providing Z97X-SOC motherboard for reviewing.

Now let’s see what this Intel Z97 chipset based board have for us.
