"With the X58A-OC Gigabyte has a motherboard in its product portfolio that has been engineered only with overclocking in mind. For example the I/O panel, which comes only with the most necessary ports, shows how uncompromisingly this board has been designed and built. Additionally there a numerous features which make the heart of any overclocker beat faster, instantly."
"The box with Gigabyte GA-X58A-OC inside is of pretty standard size, but its design is dramatically different from what we saw on regular mainboards packaging. No bright multi-color images, no numerous logo icons, just the model name and a modest but significant description: “Overclocking Motherboard”."
"You still get audio and LAN on the board, but for the most part the extras that are on many boards are gone. Of course, with the items removed other pieces have been dropped in to handle the extra voltage and current load from pushing the CPU and multiple GPUs to extremes. Despite the lack of all of the "extra" features, the price is still $380 from Newegg.com."
"People have been overclocking computer hardware for quite some time. Overclocking is not that hard at all, but to really get the highest achievable overclocks you need a motherboard that can take the punishment. Over the past 2 years we have seen efforts from many different manufacturers, but these efforts were targeted at 2 different demographics, overclockers and gamers."
