Gigabyte's first LGA1150 motherboard is still in development, but already boasts an impressive set of features.
Gigabyte has taken the wraps off its flagship model for the 4th Generation of Intel CPUs, the Z87X-OC, which is still in development and is currently without a finalized color scheme or any heatsinks for the PCH or VRM. As the name suggests, the board is designed for overclockers and is powered by a 8-phase VRM, which draws power from a 4-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS connector in addition to the standard 24-pin ATX connector.
The GA-Z87X-OC features 8 channel HD audio, 4 DDR3 DIMMs supporting a maximum of 64 GB of memory, three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (x16/NC/NC, x8/NC/x8, x8/x4/x4), two legacy PCI and a PCIe 2.0 x1 slot. With regards to connectivity, the board features 9 USB 3.0 ports, one of which is wired as a Type-A, which allows Windows 7 / 8 to be run off a compatible USB 3.0 flash drive, six SATA 6 Gb/s ports, a PS/2 connector and gigabit ethernet.
