Gigabyte Officially Details New OC Orange Motherboard
We finally get some shots of Gigabyte's upcoming overclocker-oriented board, and it's an X58. Some of you may remember that during CES Gigabyte first showed their G1 series of X58 boards and teased with a quick image of a products called "OC Orange".

Definitely looks swanky though seems a bit late to be releasing X58 boards...

i see the nv and amd certifications on the pcb there.

This board makes me angry.

It isn't dedicated to overclockers. It is dedicated to benchers. Just look at the pathetic amount of I/O ports on the back of the board. A keyboard, mouse, and your network cable and you are pretty much using everything available. Yet they add a whole bunch oif SATA ports.

Board is looking nice, very nice. But I agree with lowfat they should cut this heatsink a bit and add some port at the back of the board.

I personally love black PCB's ( I wish they did White more) but the orange not so much. And I agree some more rear I/O would be nice.

I know sapphire did a white and red PCB awhile ago but yeah a Black on white mobo and gfx would look sweet.

Of course then you would have to do a black and white loop......Mmmmm

I thought it was a newer chipset but I guess not.

I run a almost black PCB, very very dark brown it is close to black but not quite the richness of true Black.

Perfect. I've been planning out an orange and black themed build for months. This board just made the top of my wish list.
