Gigabyte Announces the GA-Z87X-OC Motherboard

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.

    Maybe it's a sign that 16gb sticks are just around the corner. :P
