Overclocking
" Anybody can Overclock with Z170X-Gaming G1 ". Overclocking is now much easy with Gigabyte EasyTune. Just change the multiplier and apply.. If CPU is not stable at given multiplier, Motherboard will restart and automatically restore earlier system settings. I manage to OC i7-6700K at stable 4.6GHz.

Z170X-Gaming G1 is the GIGABYTE’s top of the line gaming motherboard packed with power, beauty and performance. GIGABYTE has tried many new things with its next generation gaming motherboards.

Finally, GIGABYTE really managed to make a top line motherboard that is able to catch the attention in the enthusiasts and in Gaming community.
