Massman Posted April 5, 2011 Share Posted April 5, 2011 Oh rly? So we can have crap PWM, and be stuck in BIOS always....as long as we mimic GBT's non-useless features layout. Great power delivery and overclocking features are the things that define a good overclocking board, not whether they left off a couple ports and had an internal struggle trying to figure out if they could get away with it. I don't understand this comment. What I'm basically saying is that it's not because you add certain features related to overclocking that you suddenly have build an overclocker's mainboard. The things I have summed up are characteristics of an overclocker's board, but it's not because you have them that the product suddenly becomes something different. It's not because I buy a rally bodykit for my car that I suddenly have a rally-car. Rampage Extreme is part of the ROG-line. Republic of Gamers. Can this be any more clear? Gigabyte employees have admitted they kept certain features so the board appealed to a wider market, so to be devils advocate, X58A-OC - useless features = OC board? There's a distinct difference between having to make compromises on audio-jacks and USB3 connectors to convince the sales department so you can get upper-management to approve production and building a mainboard targetted at gamers/all-in-one desktop systems, throwing in some overclocking related features and calling it a true overclocker's mainboard. Anyway, I'm not really GIGABYTE's advocate here. When are these boards finally hitting retail FFS!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
