What is more fun than an overclocking event? An overclocking event in Las Vegas during CES 2014, complete with world-renowned Overclockers like Hicookie and Dinos22. The centerpiece of this event is the GIGABYTE Z87X-OC designed from the ground up for overclocking. We had a chance to review this board recently and it's quite a beast.
If you are in Vegas and interested in watching the madness of people going after the world overclocking records, then you need to be at Caesar's Palace Octavius Ballroom 6 & 7 now. It will give you some time to take a break from all that walking around to see all the new goodies while watch those new goodies in action and pushed to the limit. As you can see in the photo below, Stephen and Michael were on the scene so expect to see some coverage on something new from GIGABYTE soon.
GIGABYTE also invited Intel, G.skill, and Enermax as co-hosts to ensure the best overclocking tools were available. Don't sit too close though. I heard that LN2 can be really cold to the touch.
We've got some photos from the event attached below (refresh for new ones) and stay tuned for more CES 2014 from Futurelooks all week.
