    Gigabyte X99 SOC Force LN2 LGA2084 socket?

    Although it has fewer DDR4 and you may expect a cheaper price, actually this board has a more massive cooling system and also is equipped with the LGA2084 socket (identical to the ASUS’s OC Socket). This makes the X99 SOC Force LN2 more expensive to produce than the normal version, but the good news is that now you also get cooler mounting holes.

    Core i7 5960X 8cores looks tougher to OC?

    Tweaking

    The tweaking performance of this motherboard was on par with what our sample can handle, and we do have a poor CPU sample in terms of tweaking. Realistically at 1.30 Volts you should be able to get the Core i7 5960X at roughly 4400~4500 MHz on all cores. However we need 1.40 Volts for that. And even though that seems a little shy as a tweak, it remains to be almost 4400 MHz on 8 physical CPU cores. We learned from others that they have been able to reach 4.5 GHz on all 8-cored with just a 1.25v Vcore. Some clock great on low voltages, other behave like a pig, in our case where we needed 1.4 Volts to reach 4.4 GHz and have gotten the pig. Regardless, overclocking wise, you will have plenty of headroom to fool around with. It really is a fun processor to tweak with and the motherboard certainly isn't preventing a bad overclock, contrary the this board was designed to offer all features needed and quickly get you up-to snuff tweaking wise.

    I tink it kinda make sense that number of cores and highest clock speed value is kind of inversely proportional? So getting around 4.5ghz is superb already. I may be wrong though.
    Either that or bios not mature yet.
    Though i do see reviewers are excited cos certain board manufacturers are pushing many many bios updates.

    Possibly. Also been told 5930K clocks are not exactly good either
