Default GIGABYTE X99-SOC Champion Review Comment Thread

GIGABYTE's X99-SOC Champion seems to have everything it takes to become a legendary motherboard. It has high end overclocking built into its bones and a low price but will that lead to success?

Read more here: GIGABYTE X99-SOC Champion LGA2011-v3 Review

Here are some highlights:

- Excellent potential
- Issues with XMP support
- No longer available to purchase (only Newegg had stock and the SKU has been pulled)
- Awesome distribution of PCIe lanes.

Enjoy the LONG read.

That was the DFI color scheme before they went bust. IMO, the REAL DFI colors will always be black and yellow with a slight touch of off orange on the memory slots.
