GIGABYTE GA-X99-SOC Force Motherboard Overview and Overclocking Guide. Today I will take you on a journey into the heart of the GIGABYTE X99-SOC Force. The GIGABYTE SOC Force lineup is the evolution of the OC lineup we initially saw released with the X58 platform. Since X58, GIGABYTE hasn’t released an X series board under the OC name, but with X99, things have changed, and GIGABYTE is now bringing out their OC lineup once again for the high-end desktop platform.
GIGABYTE has introduced some new features to the GIGABYTE line up. These features include automated USB flashing for BIOS failures, pulsating LEDs, and even ports for K-type thermocouples. GIGABYTE has also taken advantage of newer technologies, like providing a Thunderbolt ready internal header, a Turbo M.2 slot, and of course, SATA Express. The board features two, three, and four-way SLI and CrossFireX support, eight back panel USB 3.0 ports, and even up to ten SATA 6GB/s ports. However, the real appeal of the X99-SOC Force is in the hardware design and overclocking, and that is what we will cover today.
