Release the full power of Intel's 4th Gen Core processor with the GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC motherboard.

Based on the latest Intel Z87 chipset, the GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC is a great foundation for your powerhouse. It takes full advantage of "Haswell" performance and features in an LGA 1150 package. This motherboard is designed specifically for the purpose of breaking OC records, with an array of exclusive and unique features that have never been seen before on a motherboard. Giving pro and enthusiast overclockers the edge on LN2, the GIGABYTE Z87X-OC sits at the cutting edge of technical possibility, pushing the outer limits of performance.

OC Ignition
There are occasions as an overclocker when you want to shut down the system without turning off the power to other parts of the system, for example the drives and system fans. This is where OC Ignition is really useful. Hitting the OC Ignition button gives continuous, uninterrupted power to all the motherboard's connected drives and system fans, but not to the CPU. This is useful in 'cold bug' situations when you need to heat the CPU to a bootable temperature, but you'd prefer the fans to keep spinning, reducing moisture build-up.

Overclockers using i-ram drives may also want to maintain SATA power, and not risk losing their customized OS install. Users with regular SSDs or HDDs also know that frequent powering on and off is harmful to your drives in the long-term.

OC Ignition is also useful in allowing users to pre-test water cooling setups, and even allows case mod demos to be developed without having to fully turn on the PC.

OC Ignition: Feature Summary
• Powers fans and drives without booting or powering the CPU
• Active fans help to reduce moisture build-up when using LN2
• Maintain continuous uninterrupted power to drives
• Safely powers water cooling systems for safe leak checking
• Test demo and case mod systems without needing to boot the system
OC Touch
The GIGABYTE OC Touch includes a range of easy-to-use buttons and switches featured exclusively on GIGABYTE OC motherboards.
OC PCIe Switch
Overclockers can manually turn on or off each installed PCIe lane of the motherboard, allowing users to effortlessly remove graphic cards from the system without the hassle of physically removal. This is especially convenient for VGA overclocking on LN2 and water-cooled systems.
OC Peg adds auxiliary power to the PCIe slots of your motherboard, improving system stability in extreme configurations. This is especially useful in power-hungry four-way graphics configurations.
OC Brace
OC Brace allows extreme overclockers and system testers to safely install up to four graphics cards in an open case or test bed, without risking PCIe slot damage or preventing cards not showing up in the OS due to poor contact with the PCIe slot. OC Brace is a simple and elegant way to give robust installation support to full-sized graphics cards in extreme multi-GPU configurations, including LN2 benching with cumbersome GPU pots that a need stable, solid installation base over extended periods.
OC Connect
OC Connect positions two USB connectors on the near side of the motherboard facing the overclocker. This makes it easier to save data, flash the BIOS, or install software in open bench testing platforms – whether for extreme overclocking, or simply pretesting the PC before final component installation inside a case, scenarios where accessing the rear-panel IO can be an inconvenience.
GIGABYTE Exclusive Ultra Durable Technologies
GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards integrate the absolute best quality solid state capacitors that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations. This provides peace of mind for end users who want to push their system hard, yet demand absolute reliability and stability. With ultra-low ESR – no matter how high the CPU loading – these capacitors come in customized jet black, exclusively on GIGABYTE 8 series motherboards. ("Rated for an unprecedented 10,000 hours of intensive operation at an incredible 105°C" – Nippon Chemi-Con)
Gold-Plated Solid Power Connectors
GIGABYTE Overclocking motherboards feature gold-plated connectors for the CPU and 24-pin ATX power connectors. Gold provides better conductivity and signal transmission than standard implementations, and gives far better reliability and stability over time due to its resistance to metal corrosion caused by frequent use.
Gold-Plated CPU Socket, DDR, and PCI Express Slots
GIGABYTE 8 series motherboards come equipped with gold-plated hardware for the most crucial areas where your motherboard has contact with other components: gold-plated CPU socket, gold DDR3 slots, and PCI Express slots. Using gold-plated CPU socket and slots means that enthusiasts are guaranteed absolute reliability and longevity for the CPU, memory, and graphics cards, no matter how many times you switch them out.
Extreme Multi-GPU Support
Optimized support for AMD CrossFire in four-way configurations, plus support for NVIDIA SLI technology in two-way setups. This extreme design allows a more optimized multiple-card overclocking experience, where the first three slots have the data bandwidth available from trace paths direct from the CPU, and the fourth slot takes the PCIe lanes from the Intel Z87 PCH.
New GIGABYTE UEFI DualBIOS with Dashboard Mode
GIGABYTE's new UEFI DualBIOS has a redesigned user interface that offers users the chance to take control of their BIOS environment like never before.

Dashboard Mode: GIGABYTE's exclusive Dashboard Mode puts you firmly in the driving seat, allowing users to have complete access to all data related to your motherboard's key components, including CPU, graphics and memory clocks, temperatures, voltages, and fan speeds.
Fully Customizable UI: Users can create their own custom home page, adding the menus and options that they tend to use most frequently. This creates a slick and optimized interface that you can customize further by adding your own  background image.
Choose Your Own Landing Page: Choose exactly which section or page of the BIOS you want to land on after each reboot. If you are fine-tuning your memory timings, you can save time with each reboot by landing on the DDR sub-timings page each time. Fewer clicks, better experience.
Real-Time Overclocking: For the first time ever, overclockers can adjust the CPU clock, frequency, and voltage settings in real-time within BIOS. This massively saves time, allowing users to find optimal settings without having to reboot.
Now integrated with the GIGABYTE App Center, a re-designed and updated EasyTune app offers a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows users to fine-tune their system settings. Adjust system and memory clocks and voltages in a Windows environment with system-related information displayed, including advanced system fan calibration and configuration.

3 out of 5 eggsNice Looking...

Pros: Nice design, comes in a cool box.

Cons: Don't bother contacting Gigabyte for support. They're awful.

Also, this thing just won't operate with more than two sticks of RAM installed. I wanted a 32GB machine for video and audio editing but I'm stuck with 16 because that's all it can handle.

Gigabyte needs to get this under control.

Other Thoughts: I had them swap one out for me, but it was a battle to get them to advance replace it. After I explained to the guy who barely spoke English that I couldn't be without my computer for two weeks, he finally "asked his boss" and did the advanced replacement.

The second one was no better, and still didn't work with more than two sticks of RAM.

I waited this long to write a review in case I or Gigabyte may have found some way to fix this, but that hasn't happened.

5 out of 5 eggsWay better than people say...

Pros: Way better than people say. I support techs in the Government and I think lot's of people just didn't know what they we're doing. It has an led display for very detailed error codes so RMA or a warranty claim shouldn't be hard to get. It also has an extra OC CPU plug for cpu stability. If people were getting stability issues well that is where I would start. Specially bought this for making a Hackintosh and windows 8.1. system. Over clocking is a breeze and has lots of RAID options.

Cons: Nothing!!!

2 out of 5 eggsBiggest regret of 2014

Pros: Looks cool, and has a very useful and easy to use BIOS

Cons: Well,... where to begin

I purchased this mother board to pair with the i7-4790K 4.0GHz CPU when it came out. That was the beginning of my problems. This motherboard arrived faulty and unstable. Sent it off for RMA which sucked having to spend more money on shipping, and waste time waiting on it. Was happy that gigabyte 'repaired' it and sent it back in around a week.

According to the RMA ticket it was 'repaired'. Not sure how much time was actually spent with my motherboard/testing because after receiving it and reassembling my new PC it was still with problems

The motherboard is still unstable. The PC randomly hangs even while doing something as simple as watching a video on youtube, has low CPU, video, etc performance ratings on all tests, and is generally running like a toaster from 1997.

Windows takes forever to boot up, and my antique laptop boots win7 faster which is hilarious. Installing any games or programs takes forever even for a small install. Unable to play any games without lagging heavily and getting around 5 fps.

(I have a Nvidia GTX 780, and 16 gigs of ram both tested and working 100% before thinking it's them)

I have used gigabyte for years, and had no second thoughts about purchasing this motherboard. After dealing with this for so long now I have lost faith with them. This motherboard should never have left the factory, let alone made it BACK to me without being 100% repaired or replaced with a brand new one. Many of my friends warned me about going with a gigabyte board saying gigabyte now has a record of sending out boards with issues, but I refused to listen and found myself in this situation for almost 2 months of back and forth drama.

This motherboard has drained the enjoyment out of my fav hobby, and has pretty much stolen most of my free time since I purchased it. (attempting to find fixes, and testing everything piece by piece) In the future I will do far more research on motherboards, and manufacturers instead of relying on one I have trusted in the past.

2 out of 5 eggsDo not buy this mb

Pros: I really love this mother board. Everything about it appears to be perfect. However, this board has caused me soooo much frustration that I will probably never buy another gigabyte mb again

Cons: 1) the fancy GUI based setup is very impressive. But I cannot find where to set the device boot order. WHERE IS THE BOOT ORDER SET IN THIS GUI? I had to go to the legacy setup mode in order to find the screen to set the boot order.
2) If a drive is disabled in the boot order screen, the BIOS appears to not consider it attached to the system. That is, with a particular drive Enabled in the SATA setup screen, but NOT included in the boot order of the boot screen, then it is as if the drive is not even connected. The device boot list takes president over the SATA drive list. This is plain STUPID.
3) It appears that the boot order is NOT accurate. If I have a DVD drive set to be the 1st boot device, and a 2nd drive set to be the 2nd boot device, and this 2nd drive is bootable, the 2nd drive is booted and the DVD drive, which is set to be the 1st boot device, is ignored.

This has cost me 2 days to figure out this mess!! Unless the drive is in the boot list, the Windows 7 installer will not install on that drive even if it is enabled in the SATA list.

I had a corrupted Windows boot drive as the 2nd boot drive. So this BIOS ignores the DVD that is the 1st boot device in the list and attempts to boot the 2nd drive, which is corrupted which causes Windows to give that black screen that says it cannot boot Windows because something boot-related is corrupted, insert the install DVD and reboot. So the only way I can get this board to boot off the 1st configured boot device is to only have that DVD as the 1st boot device and no more boot drives in the list. But then when you try to install Windows, the installer recognizes the 2nd drive (because it is enabled in the SATA list) but says that the drive is not bootable (because it is not in the BIOS boot list) so Windows will not install on it.

So the Microsoft installer is brain dead because it will not install to a drive that is not on the boot list even though it is in the SATA list. And this motherboard is brain dead because it will actually boot the 2nd device on the boot list even though a bootable Windows install DVD is loaded and the DVD device is set as the 1st bootable device in the list.

Between Microsoft stupidity and this stupid BIOS, I have spent 2 days getting this system up and running.

I am sorry, but I expect better from Gigabyte

Other Thoughts: I bought this mother board in early February but I am just getting around to installing it now. Consequently, I have no return/replacement options.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: First gaming board. I do beleave it's a good choise in the future.Looks simple to overclock in the Bios. I prefer to run as for the moment. Have a i7 4770k, which is decent. Had a few issues with the board.

Cons: Din't have display on a few occasions. Changed cables and took off adaptors. Now, I leave it as. And the system kept rebooting after 2 sec. It is painful to try to shut it down 20 times or more in a row. Went on forums. Solved the matter by: DESABLE WAKE LAN in the Bios. Hope this info saves time to someone.

Other Thoughts: Would be nice to have drivers for Linux

3 out of 5 eggsLove it when it works

Pros: It works great. The bios is beautiful and easy to understand even to a noob.

Cons: Loses configuration often. Sometimes computer won't even boot. Not sure why.

We will provide personalized service and analysis to help solve your issue ASAP. If the matter is urgent, please send us your contact number, and we will contact you.

For no POST/display issue, please check the following:

1. Be sure the CPU is supported by this motherboard, for CPU support list please go to the GIGABYTE website.

2. Check memory requirement and memory installation, be sure the memory is/are seated properly. You may test the board with a single stick to rule a single bad stick of memory.

3. Be sure the ATX 24-Pin and ATX 12V 4 or 8-Pin are plugged in firmly into the board.

4. Check for visible bent or broken pin(s) in the CPU socket (Intel CPU).

5. If you have an add-on video card installed, please check if the card requires additional powers 4, 6, or 8 Pin PCIE power.

6. Test the board on a non-conductive surface or test bench to rule out the grounding possibility.

7. Check monitor for video input selection, VGA, DVI, or HDMI.

8. Avoid using any video adapter or KVM switch.

9. Test with different video cable.

10. Clear the CMOS by taking out the CMOS battery from the battery socket, leave it out for 5 minutes and place it back after that (positive side faces up).
