Exclusive GIGABYTE Overclocking Features
OC Ignition
OC Ignition maintains power to the motherboard and connected components while the system is shut down. This means that system fans will continue to provide airflow in cold bug situations, while i-ram drive users will not lose installed data. OC Ignition also allows users to pre-test water cooling setups, and allows case mod demonstrations without having to turn on the PC.

• Fans continue to provide airflow in cold bug situations
• Perfect for pre-testing water-cooled system setups
• Case mod demonstrations without having to turn on the PC
• Retains i-ram data


OC DIMM and OC PCIe Switch
OC DIMM Switch: Manually turn on or off each channel of installed memory DIMMs, allowing users to effortlessly disable memory DIMMs from the system without the hassle of physically removing them.
OC PCIe Switch: Overclockers can manually turn on or off each installed PCIe lane of the motherboard, allowing users to disable individual graphics cards without physically removing them. This is especially useful when overclocking on LN2 and water cooled systems.


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 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.


OC Touch
GIGABYTE OC Touch includes a range of hardware overclocking buttons directly on the motherboard, making overclocking on the fly extremely fast and easy.

OC PCIe and
OC DIMM Switches

Manually turn on and off PCI Express lanes and memory channels for hassle-free troubleshooting without having to physically remove hardware.
OC Ignition
Hitting the OC ignition button gives continuous, uninterrupted power to all of the motherboard’s connected drives and system fans, but not to the CPU.
OC Tag
Load your customized settings at the touch of a button. Instantly apply your OC profile without having to manually adjust all your settings.
OC Turbo
One touch overclocking button automatically loads the most optimized GIGABYTE overclocking configuration for your processor and memory.

OC Touch Buttons
Manually raise and lower the CPU ratio, change BCLK settings, and even change BCLK stepping ratio. Make changes at any time and quickly find your CPU's maximum frequency.
Clear CMOS
Clear CMOS settings without losing your pre-configured profiles.
OC Trigger Switch
Jump between low and extremely high frequencies in an instant. Use a low frequency during boot and OS optimization, then engage the Trigger Switch to instantly hit the target frequency.
DualBIOS™ Switch
Select which BIOS (main or backup) to use. This allows users to ‘compare’ different versions of BIOS for troubleshooting.

Single Mode
BIOS Switch

Enable or disable GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ feature.
Settings Lock
Automatically remember your last successful settings, even after clearing CMOS.

Direct to BIOS (DTB)
Enter BIOS menu instantly after reboot without hitting the 'Del' button.
Reset Button
Reboots the system.

Memory Safe
Reduces DDR3 module timing to eliminate memory compatibility issues.


Premium Graphics Support
PCIe 3.0 x16 lanes
direct from CPU
PCIe 2.0 x16 lanes
direct from Chipset
Optimized Multi-GPU Configurations:
1 GPU: x16              3 GPU: x8,x4,x4
2 GPU: x8, x8          4 GPU: x8,x4, x4, x4
GIGABYTE 9 series overclocking motherboards feature optimized support for AMD CrossFire™ in 4 way configuration plus support for Nvidia SLI technology in 2-way setups. This extreme design allows a more optimized multiple-card overclocking experience where the first 3 slots have the data bandwidth available from trace paths direct from the CPU and the fourth slot taking PCIe lanes from the Intel® Z97 PCH.

    4-way Graphics Support


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 4-way graphics configurations.


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 I/O can be an inconvenience.
