Taipei, Taiwan, June 3rd, 2016 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co.

Seven overclockers from around the world participated, GIGABYTE’s senior overclocker HiCookie, in-house overclocker Sofos, Team AU’s: Dinos22, Youngpro, and SniperOZ, South Africa’s number one overclocker Vivi, and Joe SteponZ. In addition to the multiple 3D world records set on Monday, the team of overclockers have also set 2D records with this new Intel CPU. In total one world record was accomplished with three global firsts. The benchmarks that were tested during Secret OC are: HWBot Prime, WPRIME 32M, WPRIME 1024M, and Intel XTU, the last being the world record score with 3476 Marks, at 5.33 GHz.
