Do we really...

Recommended Posts

Need a section just for this board? What about ASUS? MSI? EVGA? This seems a little silly to me.

I think the idea is that the more publicity the board is given the more likely they are to make more dedicated OC boards.

Asus, evga and msi can all have a dedicated section as well. They only need to make a dedicated oc board :-)

I forgot that Gigabyte is the first (and only if I read well) manufacturer to create a board with OC features :D

I dunno, but what about other, OC related stuff? Like afterburner, lightning series, etc. I'd say those things are just as OC related as the gigabyte mobo. A section for Lightning overclocking would be cool, and maybe some afterburner subforum. Maybe that one wont be that active, but it would be a good source of information about releases etc.

Memory series, there are a lot that aim more overclockers than gamers.

AMD Black Editions CPUs

Intel K series CPUs (Xtreme series is too expensive to be an overclocking stuff :D), Cedar Mills ?

Cedar mills aren't "made for overclockers". K-chips, maybe - as they're advertized as being for overclockers. Black Edition... dunno, but I dont really think so.

Subforum exists for gigaboys for this week 3/25/11.

 

I wonder if we'll see this board next week.

 

Collin said mid-March in the video.

 

Just looking at results for 2d/3d for this board.

 

ES-CPU's probably sent out with board to gigaboys.

 

I wonder if buyers will beat these ES-CPU ran scores, probability says, you guessed it.

 

Marketting ES-CPU's are awesome.

 

This week is still yours gigaboys

I'm pretty excited about this board ... so excited I've already decided to go out and buy a retail sample :D

 

I mis-interpreted, sorry :)

Yes. The decision to 'go out and buy a retail sample' has already been taken in the past. Seems like my shitty English made someone upset. Let's change it to:

 

"so excited I've already decided that I will go out and buy a retail sample"

"so excited I've already decided that I will go out and buy a retail sample" (when it's available)

ES-Statement:

 

(im guessing)

 

Maybe Gigabyte said "shit 2nd Gen P67 Boards are selling like pancakes. We won't make that much money with X58A-OC."

Oh. Dunno, wouldn't make sense not to go through with it now. They don't expect the OC to yield high sales (compared to mainstream) and already put in so much R&D cost in it.

 

Not releasing it would just be throwing money out the window.

Foxconn Dreadnought and Asus PinoNoir come to mind..... it does happen sometimes, but I don't think the X58A-OC is going to be an example of hyped-> canned
